Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born and raised in Van Wert County. I am trying to get as many sections in Van Wert Woodland Union and Middle Point King Cemetery as possible on Find-A-Grave and take photos when I am there verifying dates, etc.

Please do not copy my photos without my permission, edit them then download them back onto the very same memorial, (mis)representing the photo as your own. Even if you are cropping it to "magnify" the data on the stone or are color enhancing it, it is not your photo to alter...Quoting Find A Grave General Rules: "Only post photos for which YOU hold the copyright (meaning photos you took). The copyright of all photos posted to Find A Grave remains with the original submitter. No use of photos ... is given without prior consent of the original submitter." Unless it is in my ancestral line, I will gladly either delete my photo or crop it for better visualization per your request.

That being said.....

"Life is like a journey, taken on a train
With a pair of travelers at each windowpane.
I may sit beside you all the journey through,
Or I may sit elsewhere, never knowing you.
But if fate should make me sit by your side,
Let's be pleasant travelers; it's so short a ride."

re gilliands
sorry i tapped the message send button before i had a chance to type in a very heartfelt thank you for taking the time to plot these cemeteries and post these memorials, some of these family members i would have never been able to find, just a random note in a history book or a will document without peoples effort like yourself.

gilliland/collins memorials
i would be very happy to have any gilliland or collins memorials you would like to transfer though it is not necessary, i appologize if i sent too many edits at one time, i just randomly get down time to sit and do these types of things so i sometimes end up sending them all at once and all these people are related to the same ancestor so ive been doing my geneology tree at the same time i have been sending edits, i like to record burial locations among my other information whenever possible, mostly because i often have relatives who might live nearby and would like to visit.

Thank you for the great photos of their headstone! I appreciate that you took advantage of the break in the weather to get these photos for me.

Woodland map
Say do you know of a section or plot map for Woodland Cemetery? I've tried to find one online and even asked the VW Chamber of Commerce to no avail. It's a big cemetery and I'm not quite sure where my relatives are buried, except for Benjamin Eugene's brother Lee who is buried in sec 69, row 15.

Yes, that would be great. Thank you! I've been hoping to get back to VW to take photos of all the Stuck's markers - maybe this summer.

Anna Belle Osenga Collins #94860744- I uploaded a picture to her page, and it needs removed. Could you please remove this wrong picture, or transfer her to me. She is my great-great grandmother. Thank You

RE: Bertha Gamble 36185149
Thank you for this picture! You successfully managed to get a great photo with the entire stone being legible! No retake needed!

Could you also post this photo on memorial #36185174 for Montez Gamble (daughter)? I'll make a photo request that you can claim. Thanks so much!
