Janet K
James, Priscilla, Alexander and Mary Jane Reid
Hello teacherdeb,

My name is Janet Knepper and my husband is a descendent of James and Priscilla Reid through their son Alexander's daughter, Arletta Reid...who married Franklin Jefferson Knepper and then Charles Lamping.
So...James and Priscilla are my husband's 3rd great-grandparents, Alexander and Mary Jane are his 2nd great-grandparents, and Franklin Jefferson & 'Lettie' were his great-grandparents.
First, I want to thank you for creating their memorials, which led my husband and I to Hancock County, OH from our home is Saginaw, MI a few weeks ago to see where they are buried and find other relatives buried in Hancock County.
I have sent you some edits on the birthdates of both James and Priscilla according to a family genealogy book we 'inherited' from my mother-in-law last year. I also double checked the dates by subtracting the age (on the stones) from the date of death shown on the stones.
I can't thank you enough for creating their memorials and taking the photos. You led us right to them and for that we will be forever grateful!
I will send other edits as I find them.
Thank you again! You have made THIS family VERY happy! We appreciate all of your time and effort!

Looking for information on Shannon Cemetery, Bluffton OH
Do you have any photos of the gravestones other than ones posted? You have several different ones of the Shannon cemetery in Bluffton Ohio.
About a year ago, the stones were removed by a local group to turn the Shannon Cemetery into a park, but they failed to get permission from all of the families. Now the families, along with a number of other people in the Bluffton area are trying to reset the stones.
Any information will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance, Philip "Bruno" Murphy

The headstone photo that you posted for this memorial seems to be for Sarah Candler instead of Sarah L. Ewing. If you don't have a photo for Sarah Ewing, I can post one. Just let me know.

Thank you so much for the photo of Dorothy and Ralph Blauvelt's tombstone. It is a valuable proof for a DAR application.

Ella May Cramer Schifferly
Hi Deb, I was researching part of my two older children's family. Their great-great grandma, Nettie Green Cramer Lytle, is a sister of Ella Mae Cramer (not Goble) Schifferly. I submitted an edit for you. I have an old notebook that James Cramer, their father, hand typed back in 1939 for Elizabeth Cramer, their mother, for their 67th wedding anniversary. (They were married in 1872.) James and Elizabeth's children are: Errett (1873), Edward Guy (1875), Minnie B. (1877), Ura E. (1879), James R. (1881), Nettie Green (1883), Ella May (1885, married Eli Schifferly), Harry (1887), George Levi (1889), Essie Young (1891), and Grace Ray (1893-1893). James Cramer is the son of Levi and Rebecca (Phillips) Cramer that are buried in Old Beaverdam Cemetery. (You posted their headstone picture.) James and Elizabeth are buried in Maple Grove Cemetery. Nettie and her daughter, Beulah, both lived to be 101 years old. Beulah married a Clements and that is where my relationship in this whole thing starts. If you have any questions, please contact me.

Thank you for the headstone foto that is posted on William & Jane Williamson's memorial pages. (See Find A Grave #41650688.) I can't read it, and I was wondering if there was a death date or age engraved on it. The memorial has the death date as September, but my family records say December. Apparently, someone misread the month because the two look almost identical. are you able to closely read the death month? Thanks for any help you can give.

date on photo
hello- am doing some research on Francis M. Good- I believe he is our ancestor- however 1895 would not be when he dies. In looking at the photo you graciously posted I wonder if the last digit might be an 8 or 9? Thanks so much- Jeani Shepherd Good

Find A Grave Memorial# 118074435

Hello Deb!

Elizabeth is my g.g.aunt and I'm puzzled about her middle name! Where did you find it?

I've been searching for her, and just found that I had the wrong year (1906, not 1905). I'll see if I can locate more of her children for connections.

If she's not a relative of yours, I'd be willing to take over her page to do this work.

Thanks so much & have a wonderful school year!

Lula Mae Dukes #107639066
I noticed you have a photo for Lula Rae Dukes #111976387 on the site for Lula Mae. I could find no record for a Lula Mae in Clymer Cemetery. Since your record showed they both died in 1889 I am wondering if they are the same person. Thanks for your help.
