Walt Steesy
Lottie Olmsted Bovey
Memorial #11556043
Center Cemetery, Conneaut, OH

Her maiden name is Olmsted (no "A"); it is correct on the monumnet.

The two spellings Olmstead & Olmsted are often interchanged. Her own linage goes back to James Olmsted, a founder of Hartford, Conn., who had arrived from County Essex to Massachuetts in 1632.

RE: re Ross family
Thank you so much for your help and for the suggestion about the cemetery website. I am not directly related to the Ross line but was researching a distant branch and trying to sort out the family connection.

Thank you for all of the work you do for findagrave.

Hi again Mrs JB
Didn't mean to say any thing wrong I was just confused on what you found to what I found I do have the death cert and was confused by that too
Are you related to these people They are cousin's of my family and at my age 74 trying to finish my ancestry. On the census the transcribers sure made a lot of mistakes I have found The information you have on them is what I have also and I know people changed there names all the time in the census depending on who gave the information in the family
I have Harry Festing born Apr 8 1864 Death 23 Sept 1942 Wellsburg Cranesville
and I thought Henry (brother) born Nov 30 1862 guess that is wrong I put him in Erie Cemetery so may have to take him out of there as for the transfer if you are related then you manage it ok
I didn't mean to conterdict what you have I was just wondering what was going on with the info on ancestry I never did find the info you have about a divorce I am probably the one that goofed sorry

Thank you so much for the four beautiful photos you posted of the Sherwoods in Edinboro Cemetery and the two transfers. Future Sherwood researchers will be so excited to see them.

Interesting stone for Beth Dwyer
I have to laugh - when I looked at the edits, saw the first one -- and the second was the gravestone transcription - it was a bit spooky in bold type and at first I thought someone was trying to contact me -- creeped my own self out! Thanks again for all your hard work! ;-)edie

Wm & Clara Sabin - Yankee Hill
Hi Mrs JB - I moved the Sabin family from Cambridge to Yankee Hill - I'm assuming the parents, brother and sister of William should also be there - I moved them as well. I "googled" 'Aaron Long, Lucretia Rockwell' and see a short bio of Aaron. Says he married Lucretia Rockwell, widow of Henry C Long, in 1863. I go to the NY Public Library and use the Library Edition of (for free!) and really enjoy seeing those PA death certifs from 1906-1944. Please let me know if I have other entries at Cambridge that should be moved. Thanks, Ted K
