Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family are mostly from Monroe County, Ohio. I spent lots of time there as a child on my grandparents farm on Grizzle Ridge Road. I have lots of information and old photos from that area I'm anxious to add to this site.

Names I'm currently researching are mostly my family's and include Decker, Clark, Workman, Griffith, Brown, Schenk, Freitag (Friday) Murphy, Fisher, Young, McMahon, Turner, Ullman, Mellott and Ott.

Please take a minute to look through my virtual cemetery, "Grandma's Album." ==>
These are photos of friends and relatives I have not yet identified. Maybe you will recognize someone and be able to help me identify them. Maybe they are a relative of yours?

For me, this is about doing something good for my family members and yours, too! It's not about keeping score, taking credit for something or seeing how many memorials I can build. It's exiting to research and locate family members that I never knew about. If I can help you find yours in the Ohio area please let me know, I'd be happy to help.

Joseph Doraen
Just and FYI on your posting for Joseph Doran, d. Jan 5 1922 in Yolo, California.

He was born in Kosciusko County, Indiana in 1849. His father was Isaac Doran b. 1824 in Franklin County, Virginia. His mother was Maria Bybee born 1826 in Kosciusko County, Indiana.

Maria Bybee Doran was killed by Indians in the 1850's as they were crossing the Plains, thought to be in Nebraska. His father Isaac continued to California and a Dutch couple took him in.

He returned east and with a new wife headed back west and theory has it they were killed along the way. They Dutch couple changed his name to Dorean but not formally.

His wife was Martha Puterbaugh. They were my husbands great great grandparents.

RE: 86498489
Ahhh, no I wish I did, and its funny because she should be on the California Death index but can't find her there either.
I'm checking to see if I can find her with the other children. Thanks for your help

Good idea, thanks

Tom do you know where you got this from. I am looking for Charles Albert Barrett's mother Emma J Barrett and I'm wondering if maybe the C is really an E. I'm probably grasping at straws but I've been looking a very long time. LOL Thanks

Lawrence Day
Dear Tom,
Please correct the birth year for my relative, Lawrence Day. He is listed in Woodland Cemetery. Your entry for his birth year says 1913 and my family data and the photo of his grave stone say 1918.

Thank you.
