Bio Photo Hello everyone - I live in Huron County, Ohio, have three living children, and one deceased as a baby (SIDS). I love genealogy and have been doing it for at least 25 years. Barbara Kane Kolanda
TRANSFERS: With any findagrave memorial that I maintain, if you are a closer relative than I, I will transfer. If I have no connection and you have some connection (even friendship), I will transfer.

Lives are commemorated - deaths are recorded - families are reunited - memories are made tangible - and love is undisguised. This is a cemetery.

Communities accord respect, families bestow reverence, historians seek information, and our heritage is thereby enriched.

Testimonies of devotion, pride and remembrance are carved in stone to pay warm tribute to accomplishments and to the life - not death - of a loved one. The cemetery is homeland for family memorials that are a sustaining source of comfort to the living.

A cemetery is a history of people - a perpetual record of yesterday and a sanctuary of peace and quiet today.

A cemetery exists because every life is worth loving and remembering - always.

- Author unknown

It has been said that every person has three deaths.

The first is the actual physical death, when the spirit leaves the body.

The second is when the body is lowered into the grave, never again to be seen in the flesh.

The third and final death comes much later, when all who knew that person have joined him in the afterlife, and the name, even the existence of that person, vanishes from knowledge.

Thank you, Find-A-Grave, for letting us remember our loved ones, as well as those known only as a name on a tombstone, through these memorials.

RE: Julia Richards Bonawit
Thank you for your thoughtfulness! I will keep the memorial up to date as I learn more about this somewhat distant branch of the family. :-)

Nobel Franklin Cox
I was wondering where you got the spelling? On the death certificate it is spelled N o b l e. And his son Richard signed it. I've looked several other places and I think it should be Noble. If I am wrong, I am very sorry.

Sandy a great great granddaughter

John P. Lee
I was out to Clarksfield Methodist Cemetery and got pictures of some of the Lee's. John P. Lee was a request that you had and I have a picture of a John P. Lee, but the dates on the stone are 1830-1905 and the dates in the memorial are 1880-1905. I was wondering if there was a error or if I have the wrong person. If I have the correct individual I will put the pictures up on the memorial. If you could let me know I would appreciate it. Thank you!

RE: Johann Adam Heiser
Wow, what a great find. I too had him noted to be buried at Mt Zion with his wife. Did you find out about his wife, Anna Maria Mueller? I have questions about her and the dates we have because another individual has exact same dates and list her buried in Northampton, PA with grave marker shown. (68871666).

RE: Isaac Darnell
Hi Barb,
I believe we've virtually run into each other before on research on Isaac Darnell. I've also done a lot of research over the years on my own and then ended up finding more people looking into the same people I was and sharing info, as you have.

I was aware that "Hanse" was Anson H and Harrison's middle name was McHenry. I was simply cutting and pasting from the list I have. Concerning the Thomas C. I have listed, he's in the 1860 census for Lewis Co, Ky, listed right under Isaac N, as age 10, born then 1850. As he's not listed in the 1870 census and they named another child Thomas later on, I'm suspecting Thomas C. died. Makes no sense to name another child the same name if that older child is still alive. Wasn't finding a twenty year old Darnell in the 1870 census either. Have no further info on him, but maybe a cemetery listing would give some.

I think I've gotten to where you have on Florence. She was 37 in that 1900 census, so either she got married and just haven't found the record, or she died. Might have to check the Chronicling America newspaper site cause they have some papers from Maysville there for that time that may have answers.
