Bio and Links
Bio Photo If you would like us to add/edit info on a memorial, please include the sources for your information.


Uncovering buried stones has always been a fun hobby for my grown daughters and me, but Find A Grave has made it more of an "obsession". We live in North Central Ohio (aka "rural America"), so we get to see some long-forgotten stones in out-of-the-way places.

You may use any of our uploaded photographs of headstones, without prior permission, for all non-commercial purposes. Non-grave photos may not be used without specific and written permission.

Additional information is often taken from the deceased's birth, marriage and death records. Birth date is always calculated, using the age on the tombstone, when possible.

We GLADLY transfer memorials, as long as it isn't one of our relatives or some special stone which we've "adopted". Just ask through the "edit" button. We're working our way through Morrow County, Ohio, but have absolutely no family there. We'd love for these memorials to be in the hands of someone who will care for them.

If you take a better-quality photo than one which we've posted or just want the space back on your memorial, just let us know. We'll be happy to delete our photos.

We include a literal transcription and photo of every stone which we read. If we include a birth date that's been calculated from the age on the tombstone, then we make a note of that.

We're having a blast! It's just the running, snarling dogs that we don't like . . .

Augusta Angus Swetland
I just wanted to let you know that Augusta is also buried with Helen Baxter Angus (1889-1969) and James Angus (1849-1907). I noticed that you have him married to a James Angus (1855-1903). The two James Angus's are not the same person since they each have a different gravestone. I will share the other pictures I took if you would like me to email them to you.

Thank you so very much for the transfers and the photos are just great. It's hard to believe you could find the headstones, amazing.

Thank you

I sent you a couple of emails with pictures. Did you get them? I'm wondering because I have been having problems with my Bresnan email. Please let me know. Thank you.

Challenge, is Sarah Scott Robinson in Souslin Cemetery, as is husband?
Wonderful, and much appreciated specialty you have developed!

Should you happen to have reason to be looking for more buried grave stones in Souslin Cemetery, Licking County, I have a challenge to suggest. The burial place of Sarah Scott Robinson, the wife of David Robinson, # 80526732, has yet to surface. It may be that she is not buried near her husband, whom you have found in Souslin Cemetery, Licking County. It would seem to be a likely place to look. In the meantime, I've created a memorial page for Sara #134128651 so that family can be linked to her.

However, a grandson of Sarah and David, in his 1941 SAR application, indicated that she had died in 1867 in Illinois. If that is the case, since this is after the Civil War, when it became more common for bodies to be preserved for shipping, that hers was sent back to Ohio. I have not yet followed up on where all of Sarah and David's children are buried, in addition to the ones you found,in case she is buried with them, but one, Julina L. Robinson Painter is in Fallsburg Cemetery, Licking County, Memorial 47260261.

David Robinson & family, Souslin Cemetery
Wow ! Wonderful that you are searching for buried stones and publishing your results. Thanks so much !

David Robinson, Memorial # 80526732 is an ancestor of my husband. My submission of Julina Latta Robinson Painter as one of his children comes from a transcription of the Painter Family Bible.

I would be pleased to adopt the David Robinson family's graves.

Yet to be found is David's wife, Sarah Scott. She may be interred in Illinois. The hunt is on !
