Bio and Links
Bio Photo I research the surnames of Limes, Duvall, Lombard, McKee, Szczepankiewicz and Zagorsky.

My locations of ancestry for my Limes and Duvall lines are in Lorain, Franklin, Pickaway and Champaign Counties, in Ohio; and in Virginia: Frederick County in the early 1800s for my Limes, and McKee lines.

I am a descendant of Dr. Jeremiah Duvall of Bedford, Pennsylvania.

For my Szczepankiewicz line: The areas of ancestry are: Zlotkow, Milaczew, and Kazimierz Biskupi, Poland.

For my Zagorsky ancestry: Resita in present day Romania (formerly Resica in Austria-Hungary.)


For those with a sincere interest in cemetery preservation in the state of Ohio, there is a closed Facebook Group: "Preserving Ohio's Cemeteries" that addresses the issues caused by the use of improper gravestone cleaning, repairing, and re-setting; among other aspects of what elements encompasses cemetery preservation and gravestone conservation.


Please remember that just because someone holds a cemetery preservation workshop does not necessarily mean that the person or company holding it adheres to all of the widely held best practices for cleaning, repairing, and re-setting gravestones.

For example, some use power tools such as Nyalox plastic brush wheels attached to power drills that rotate at high speeds. Using Nyalox brushes removes the outer layer of stone or marble. It is a totally unapproved method for application on gravestones by the Association for Gravestone Studies, and the NCPTT of the National Park Service.

Attempt to learn ahead of time, before attending a workshop, if the methods and products that will be demonstrated and used are aggressive (think power washers and power tools), abrasive (think wire brushes or metal scrapers), or invasive (think metal pins and rods) as these are just some of the methods that lead to or directly cause destructive damage that are irreversible on a gravestone.

So, please to gain a well rounded education, consider attending more than one cemetery preservation workshop if you are intent on learning the best practices of hands-on gravestone cleaning, repairing, and resetting yourself.

Always think: DO NO HARM -- Less is more when it comes to working with fragile old original gravestones -- which are truly one of a kind historic artifacts.

If your goal is to read and photograph tombstone inscriptions: Many gravestone inscriptions can be read by reflecting light on the letters and numbers, or by shining one of the newer LED lights on the front of the gravestones to bring out the inscriptions for transcriptions or photography purposes.

RE: Emma Jorden Upp etc.
Thanks for the note. Although I have "gleaned" information from Find A Grave for several years, I just yesterday became a member/contributor. I have no idea how to merge two records about the same person.

I do have 1-2 photos of Emma and John during their married life. If you would like digital copies, send me a private e-mail address and I will forward them. You can use to send directly outside of the Find A Grave system.

Emma was my paternal grandmother.

Daniel Goble in Shannon Cemetery
Thank you for your detailed info on what is happening at the Shannon Cemetery. I appreciate knowing this and I'll leave my photo request active so others can read about the problem. Perhaps Daniel's tombstone will be one of the ones standing in the concrete and will still be legible at some point in time. What a terrible thing to do; it could still be a nice cemetery park without removing the markers in their place.

RE: Cary Lytle
You are welcome! I'm not related to anyone in the cemetery. Just live nearby and do random acts of genealogy by taking photos while walking through the cemetery. If I have any others you would like to manage let me know. I'm actually not related to any one in Fayette Co. I would rather the memorials be with someone that has an interest even if they are not related.

Thank you for the old Nancy Boyd link, which I deleted. For some reason, that one did not come up on a search, but it should be gone now!

RE: Kayla Allen issues
That is OK. Sometimes I don't understand all of the workings. We can just leave it the way it is. That really doesn't hurt anything. Thank you for all you have done. It is appreciated.

RE: Enos Adams
Hi Linda Jean - Thank you for the information on Enos Adams. Unfortunately I don't know the specific cemetery in Texas where the Winders are buried. The reference to burial in Uvalde, TX was in the book A Genealogical History of Robert Adams, of Newbury, Mass., and his Descendants, 1635-1900. (Compiled, edited and published by Andrew Napoleon Adams of Fair Haven, Vermont.)
