Transferred and removed the memorials. I had missed that Mrs. Feigenbaum had previously been added. Thanks for letting me know. :) Bison

Re: Feigenbaum
No, I am not a relative. I only put relatives and close friends OR at the request of a family member of the person added. Would you like Evalyn and Jeffery transferred or removed?

RE: Mary Featherby
Maybe, but I think this is your Mary. Pretty sure that Elizabeth Wilkerson's dates for the memorial are just from reading the stone (she has done wonderful work adding transcriptions from many stones in the county, although apparently in person and not from photographs). It looks like she saw "1834" as the death date, saw "49" as the age, and subtracted to get 1785. With the benefit of reading the county history, I see that the likely death date is 1847, and when I zoom in close on the stone, sure enough it looks like 1847. Subtracting 49 years gives us 1798, which is exactly what we'd expect from the county history and other records. I sent those suggested updates to Elizabeth Wlikerson, so we'll see what she does with that.

RE: Mary Featherby
Actually, now that I look at someone else's photos, I think her stone was indeed somewhat near the Wilks family memorial. Just didn't see the connection at the time.

RE: Mary Featherby
Hi, glad to do it! "Old Cemetery" is indeed - it is tucked away behind houses and woods, with the access road changed years ago so it's no longer connected to the main road. Rootstown is tiny and historical and rural. The whole cemetery is small - it is the pioneer cemetery for the community, and most of the occupants were born in the 1700s or early 1800s. So, lots of old-style stones. Mary's is fairly solitary, no apparent family members nearby (at least none with Featherby name), in the center southern edge. I sent in requests to the memorial manager (Elizabeth) to update dates, links, and bio. I also sent a request to the memorial manager of son Joseph H. to request he be linked to her. If you'd like, you could see whether either or both would be willing to transfer. I know Elizabeth enters thousands of memorials in the region, so I would guess this is not relative, but with memorials this old no one meets the family requirements of FindaGrave so they often remain with the memorial creator.

I found info about Mary's son, who was in Edinburg Twp in another part of the county, and whose grave is already in and photographed. Here's what I used to request edits. It's from "History of Portage County Ohio" published in 1885:

"JOSEPH H. FEATHERBY, farmer, P. O. Edinburgh, was born in Edinburg Township, this county, June 14, 1839, son of Joseph and Mary Featherby, natives of Pennsylvania, both born in 1798. They moved first to Columbiana County, Ohio, thence to this county, and here remained until their death. She died in 1847, and Joseph Featherby then married Sabre Wilks, sister to his first wife. He died in 1874, and his widow in 1883. Our subject married, April 25, 1866, Laura Chapman, born in Edinburg Township, this county, June 13, 1843, daughter of James and Mary E. Chapman, both deceased, and to this union have been born four children, three of whom are now living: Nettie, Edith and Grace. The deceased was an infant. Our subject, who has been a farmer all his life, owns seventy-six acres of land. He has filled the ofifice of Trustee of his township. Mrs. Featherby died July 26, 1876."
