|Bio and Links|
I joined Find-A-Grave to "pay forward" the help I have received from others.|
Most of the cemeteries, in Defiance and Williams County Ohio, have been read/walked and indexed. I would be willing to look up and send information if requested. I am most knowledgeable about the cemeteries in Farmer Twp. and Washington Twp., Defiance County; and for St. Joseph Twp., Springfield Twp. and Pulaski Twp., in Williams County.
OF INTEREST to others may be the link to the Williams County Public Library (WCPL) obituary index. Anyone who has died in the Williams County, Ohio area since 1870 is most likely on the index. Many Defiance County, Ohio obituaries were included in the Williams County newspapers. I suggest searching by using the last name only. Keep in mind the spellings may vary so try several options if you do not get results on the first search. If a name is listed more than once, it is because an obit was published in more than one local paper. Not all of the papers have been added, so check back often to see if there is a new entry for one of your Ancestors.
The obituary index direct link is

You can request obits online and they will be sent by email.
The link to the WCPL library history and genealogy department is

The above URL will have links to Williams and Defiance County Genealogy Society websites.

|Kathi Maynard Wiley||Robison family|
Greetings Mary Joan
Thank You SO much for your detailed information on members of the Robison family. It thrills me to see someone go the extra mile in providing documentation for the memorials and for other family members researching their ancestors.Keep up the good work !
|Glen Marquis||RE: Wilbur Smith - North Mount Zion Cemetery|
John and Eudora most likely are buried in Mt Zion, but I haven't found a headstone. I'll look again when I get a chance.
Within the last 5 years the old part of the cemetery has been cleaned up, and the headstones have been moved onto new concrete pads, so proximity to other other family members has changed.
|Glen Marquis||Wilbur Smith - North Mount Zion Cemetery|
I've been trying to fulfill your photo requests in North Mount Zion Cemetery, but I haven't found John Smith, Eudora Smith or Wilbur Smith. However, checking on Wilbur Smith on FamilySearch.Org, it looks like Wilbur's first wife was Mary Alwilda McKibben, and his second wife was Sarah Sullinger. Mary and Sarah are located next to each other in the cemetery. I can send you a photo if you would like. Also, I suspect Wilbur's name was Wilbur D'Roy Smith, and he went by W. D. Smith. In one reference his name was spelled Wilbert.
|Andrew L.||RE: Madison Co Ancestor|
I found his 1846 probate record if you don't have it also found his wife was Hannah Steele
|Kingsley Hogan||RE: Brayton|
Yes Gideon F Brayton is 4th great uncle, his brother Russel Cole is 3rd grandfather, his daughter Harriet Brayton is 2nd grandma,her daughter Mary Fidelia is great grandma, her daughter Isadore Goodrich is my grandma.
Thank you for reminding me about the wrong Bio. for Gideon F, or Falley as I think he went by. You see I went to his memorial site and found the error myself as I was trying to add the photo. So the only way for me to change the Bio was to take the management and that takes a while to be processed so I hadn't got back to it yet and quite frankly I had forgot it had the wrong info.
Have you clicked on the photo to get the information on it? That photo is of my great aunts wedding and Fally was the minister. I found a story in the paper that told of the old soldiers getting together before the wedding. Mary Fidelia's half brothers were both in the war and they are the one's Falley was visiting before the wedding they are in the photo as well.
we can chat more tomorrow my regular E mail is email@example.com ,or 541-510-2585
|Joe Payne||RE: Welcome|

i sent you a email :) Thank You
|jeherh0327||RE: Edward Robinson II|
Sorry to take so long. My husband's email is listed not mine. I know nothing of Edward's parents. My mother's father was Walter Robinson,one of Benjamin's older brothers. Walter died when my Mom was three so I knew very little about his family. Ben is the one we heard of the most and believe he lived in Maryland most of his adult life. I did meet him once or twice but I was quite young. I didn't know he had children.
