Bio Photo I love doing genealogy, the search is the best part of the hunt. Now I was able to help out others and put some photograph's up on the site. I had a great time looking through the cemetery trying to connect people to their families, so they won't be forgotten.

I live in Ashtabula County,Ohio
Please feel free to use any of my photo's as you wish, they are your relatives !! I'm just helping you on the road to further your family search. I'm very happy to take these pictures for you !!

RE: Asa George Root
Ah, yes. I tend to forget to look at FamilySearch. It does, as you have pointed out, tend to have pretty good material and sometimes stuff that doesn't have.
Did you get my great-great grandmother Lura Smith Root's death certificate that way? I didn't get it to come up with a photo image.

RE: Asa George Root
Yes, that's my 3x great grandfather. He's supposed to be buried in the Johnston Twp. cemetery also. Did you find his stone? Have you created a memorial for him?

With the wealth of information you possess about the area, I imagine you've been to Warren many times. I was absolutely blown away when I walked into the court house probate records department and I had not one, not two, but FIVE people jumping all over pulling records and helping me. Amazing.

RE: Lura Smith Root in Johnston Twp Cemetery
Well, this really makes me sad. I knew that there were two cemeteries, but a contact I'd been working with in Warren told me that the south cemetery was the Johnston Township cemetery, and the one across the road to the north was the Evergreen cemetery. So I didn't even try to walk across the road and look there (besides which it was late afternoon and daylight was fading). Oh well, at least I have your photos, which I do appreciate.
I also appreciate the other information, including Lura's death certificate. I went to the library there in library looking for her obituary, and all I found was that someone in her family had returned from attending her funeral.
I also found the consent form which you added (the one for her marriage), and I can see that Lura's father's name was hard to read (the transcribers at Warren read it "Alansen" Smith). Having Judson contribute the information for his mother's death certificate really clarifies it.
Thanks again.

Lura Smith Root in Johnston Twp Cemetery
Second question on Lura (Find A Grave # 93456967)
Do you know where you found her father's name? I got her marriage record at the court house and, since both she and George Root were considered to be minors (she was only 16, George was 19), they had to have the consent of their fathers. I found this consent, and Lura's father's name appears to be "Alanson" (it could be "Alamson", as the middle letter is a little smudged in their marriage license application).

Lura Smith Root in Johnston Twp Cemetery
Re: Find a Grave memorial #93456967.

I was wondering if you knew where in the cemetery Lura is buried; she is my great-great grandmother. A few days ago my husband and I were at the cemetery (on our way through; we do not live at all close) and walked the cemetery back and forth probably five times looking for her and her son Judson Root (and his wife Mary). We never found their stones. Do you perhaps have a GPS coordinate on your photograph (if taken with a cell phone in the last few years, you probably do!). Strangely, in the far northwest corner of the (older) cemetery we found a Root upright headstone, but no stones around it.

Would you be willing to check this out for me? This non-finding of her grave was the biggest disappointment for me in our recent family research trek.

Josiah and Eunice had 11 children. You have Eunice dying before the two attached children (James and Nancy) being born. Please contact me so that we can correct this family. Thanks!

The Walter Walker you list as the father of Josiah Lawrence Walker #118938725 is incorrect. Josiah's father, Walter R. Walker #38975793, is buried in Dalton, MA. Would you please make the correction? Thanks!
