|Bio and Links|
I'm twenty-three-years-old and live in Ohio.|
I've been interested in genealogy since I was a young kid. According to my mom, whenever they would get the newspaper, the only thing I wanted to read was the obituaries!
Currently I am focusing on photographing Fountain Cemetery in Fostoria, Hancock County, Ohio.
If anyone I've added is related to you, but not me, I'll gladly transfer their memorials to you if you ask. I find it to be so rewarding getting a message from someone asking me if I will do a transfer as they are related to someone I added. Being able to say I've helped someone find their loved one--as I added them on here, is why I do what I do.
If you would like to use any of the photographs that I have added on FindAGrave, please ask for permission before taking and using on other websites. Thank you!
When I first joined FAG almost eight years ago it was to find distant relatives--and I succeeded and in the process added many other relatives. That is why I take pictures of cemeteries & post the information on the graves, in hopes that one of the deceased's family members finds the memorial and wants to manage & add to it.
If you would like a family member's memorial transferred to you, please send it via the Correction tab instead of in a message. Thank you!
Listed below are the families that I research and the areas that they are from. Below that, I have listed my deceased grandparents. Feel free to leave a flower. Thanks!

|Joyce Niswander||Phyllis Benjamin & Robert Atchison|
My name is Joyce Niswander and I accepted your photo request for the above two names in Maple Grove Cemetery. I went to the location where they are interred and found no headstone/marker. Usually when that happens I go back to make sure. I took a copy of the map from the section, that I copied from the eCIMS, on my second visit. The reason why I did this was because someone has a very nice memorial in the location where I thought Phyllis and Robert are interred. But there are no names there. So I'm asking a favor, will you please look at the map for Maple Grove on eCIMS and see if my interpretation is correct. Then look at the photos that I will upload soon. If you are not completely satisfied with my conclusion on this matter, please let me know. Then I will return to Maple Grove and try again. Thank you.

You are welcome! Happy to do it...
|Deb Greeley||Find A Grave Memorial# 107002100|
Orison Greeley -
You have posted the dates of birth and death on the memorial page, but they are not on the headstone. I was wondering if you could tell me where the dates came from? Did you have access to the cemetery records?
I am looking for an Orison Sylvester Greeley. My aunt's records show he was born 1858, died 1931 in North Platte, NE. I have found an Orison in Ohio and another in New York - so far none in Nebraska!
But, since Orison is such an unusual name, I was wondering if there might be more information about the one in your memorial. I'd like to see if he might be related.
Thank you for your time and for all the work you've done for Find A Grave. It is very much appreciated.
Janice K. Sharp Ebersole - 111140762 has her parents listed as Ona Widener - 11140862 & Helen Long Sharp - 143123272. The father should probably be listed as Glenn M. Sharp - 111140862. Looks like you needed an extra one. I'm related to Ona Widener and didn't recognize the name listed as her child.

Good Morning jdean,Happy 4th of July!
I would like your permission to copy and use photographs you have posted on FIND-A-GRAVE in my family genealogy with proper credit given to you.

I found a photo of a relative on Find A Grave, can I use it?

Thank you for your consideration.

|Julie Myers Stephen||Ruch Family|
Julie, wanted to let you know that the Frank Ruch who is buried in Arizona is not the right Frank Ruch. Your Frank Ruch was born May 1,1896 and died June 10,1949 in New York. Brenda has a copy of the family Bible. Trying to find burial records of Frank in New York. Will let you know if I find anything
|Bill Rosebrough||RE: Madison Johnson Dean|
THANKS! That was a big help. I also appreciate your prompt response. At the risk of repeating what you already know, here is what I have: My 4th great grandmother, Nancy Adeline AYERS married Jacob JOHNSON, JR in 1808. They had three children: Matilda (1810-1885); Susannah (1812 - 1854); and Madison (1813-1899). She married Hiram Harrison DEAN on 17 June 1816 in Patrick County, VA. Evidently, Hiram adopted Madison and Madison took his surname. Nancy and Hiram had children: Louisa DEAN (1816-1915); Jameson Dickson (1817-1904); Elkanah Harrison (1818-1888); Abner Jones (1822-1905); Nancy Adeline (1825-1880); Henry Harrison (1827-1898); Susannah (1833-1934).
Nancy was born 30 Jan 1790 in Carroll County, VA and died 29 Mar 1865 in Pipers Gap, Carroll County, VA.
|Bill Rosebrough||Madison Johnson Dean|
Madison Johnson Dean is my 3rd great grandfather. His Find A Grave Memorial# 23625371 lists his father as Jacob Johnson. Do you know any more about Jacob Johnson - who was his father, where was he born etc.
It is my understanding that Jacob died at an early age and that Nancy Ayers then married HH Dean who adopted Madison. I have lots of info on Nancy but not much on Jacob Johnson = a dead end for my research.

|MaryK||Photo requests for St. Pats, Bay City|
I was unable to fill these requests because the office lady is very unhelpful about locating graves. She hates a list so I have found it easiest for the individual who is requesting the photo to find out the location. I have an index of existing tombstones that some nice ladies did for the Bay County GENWEB but that's for the old St. Pats where most burials are from the early 1900s. Sorry!
