Angeline & Sarah Nadenbush
Mr. Royer, Thanks so much for publishing the information and photos of the Old Franklinton Cemetery and the grave stone of Angeline and for memorializing Angeline and Sarah. My great, great, great grandmother Eliza Nadenbush Gaw was their sister. I visited the site a number of years ago from California and also took photos. Angeline died from complications of child birth in bearing her son James Van Pelt.
I appreciate your service in preserving the information on our departed ancestors by recording their gravestones.
Blessings on you.
Karen Miles

RE: Risley Memorials
Hi Gary- Thanks so much for transferring the memorials. I really appreciate it. I will definitely keep the information about you organizing the effort to get a headstone for Jacob. That was a very kind thing for you to do. Best wishes for health and happiness in 2014! Best, Matt

RE: Mazie Hinton Jones #14424985

You are very welcome. Mazie's father, John Cox Hinton, is my 2nd g-grandfather. I have a Hinton tree on Let me know if you would like access to the tree. The research is part mine, part from G W Hinton's family history and the research of Phyllis Hinton Queen.

I see you have a picture of the old post office in Franklinton and also known as the David Deardurff home (as the sign in front of the house says). That settles that discussion about the spelling of David's last name.
Who do I get in touch with to see abou getting a veterans monument put up for Jospeh Grate?
Again thanks for all the work you do.

Scioto Cemetery
Hello Gary:
I was reading with interest the comments on the photos of Scioto Cemetery and was disgusted to read about the vandalism by three teens. I would be interested in more. Could you please email me privately? dianne_m43701 (at) Thanks for the consideration.

After reading a Book.
I found this Cemetary after reading about it in a book written by a Marine who served in the Gulf War.
He was a kid who grew up in Franklinton and visited the cemetary often and taken in by the old soldiers buried there and their lost stories.
He grew up, was sent off to war, and had a greater understanding of the trial and sacrifices of those solders and came home from the war to visit the cemetary and pay his respect. Great story.

RE: Francis Moorehead
Thank you for the reply and THANK YOU for caring about the Cemetery's need for attention. You truly are a very special person!

I first received the info that Francis MOORHEAD may be in the Salt Creek United Presbyterian Cemetery at lot #192. No luck finding him their under either last name spelling.

I did them locate him (MOOREHEAD) at your site. You may find him at #192. Just a thought ?
Thank you and keep up the great work.
