Bio and Links
For the past twenty plus years I have been working on my family history. Things are so much easier now to research from the comfort of my own home with all the information available online.

I love to walk through the old cemeteries. I only wish they could tell their stories a little "louder".

Now I have a place to deposit all the information I have acquired over the years. It will take a while to get it all up here. I look forward to meeting others who are researching the same lines.

Family names I am researching are:
Merrill, Hall, Bailey, Hayes, Anderson, Batten
Samuelson, Larson, Holcomb, Bancroft
Erdenberger, Stanhope, Owen, Lockwood, Bender, Bickel, Wise
Rothe, Kerr, McCoy, Zeits, Wolf, Armstrong, Harbison, Sagerson
Gillespie, Geiger, Roll
Cone,Beauseigneur, Hirtzel
LaBrie, Samson
I welcome all inquiries or will share information from my files.

I picked up this quote at the Ashtabula OH County library in Geneva:
We are the chosen. In each family, there is one who seems called to find the ancestors. To put flesh on their bones and make them live again, to tell the family story and to feel that somehow they know and approve. Doing genealogy is not a cold gathering of facts, but instead, breathing life into all who have gone before. We are the story tellers of the tribe.

Seth Sheard
Hello Sue... I added a picture for Seth Sheard (your request) from Oxford Cemetery. Shared marker with spouse (Katy) and son (Carl). I added memorials for both. Marker only had "S. Sheard" at base, but "Seth" mentioned as husband of Katy. Hope this helps. J

RE: Merrill Plot
The view from their plots is beautiful. The plots are on a shelf at the top of a hill nestled in the pine trees. I was up there around 8:30 AM enjoying the sun peeking through the trees. I am glad you like the pictures. I always try to take a picture of the entire family plot and name each person in their final resting place order. It gives folks a visual of their families final resting place. Herbert's stone is loose from the base so I was able to get a better picture by laying it on it's back. I did upright it after photographing it. I'm glad I could help you. Have a nice day!

Carlos C Holcomb
Glad I could help locate his grave. I researched Carlos Holcomb because I am trying to determine the parents of his 1st wife Phebe Jane Decker - or her birth place in New York state. Do you have any information regarding their son John Wesley Holcomb? His death record may give me the information I need. I located John Wesley Holcomb on the 1860 Oxford, Marquette, Wisc and 1870 Ironton, Sauk, Wisconsin census but nothing after 1870. Would have have additional information? Thanks.

RE: Merrill Portrait
Sue, we've corresponded before...his first wife's sister was my great-grandmother. I found an old photo of him, but haven't found much more info.

Hi Sue,
I love the quote you added to your profile page. I suppose I couldn't do all the research and posting online if I didn't feel that my ancestors approved at least, I hope they do!
Nice chatting with you about the Daughertys in Oakland Cemetery. They're quite close to my Esteses.
