Bio and Links
Bio Photo Being a Find A Grave photo contributor is the most rewarding & constructive hobby I've ever taken up.. You have my consent to use any of the headstone or plot photos that I've loaded to memorials.. If I've created a memorial for a family member or friend of yours, I'm more than willing to transfer them to you.. I'm not looking to own high numbers of memorials, my intentions as a contributor are.. first.. to help document the cemeteries.. and secondly.. to help family members find their ancestors more easily.. So even if you don't necessarily fit the Find A Grave 'guidelines' for requesting a transfer, don't let that deter you from asking.. My feelings are that if you've taken the time to contact me with a correction or addition to a memorial, then you qualify...

I also want to give special mention to my Find A Grave friend, Kris Daugherty/OSU1988. Kris has been a tremendous help to me by providing me with cemetery records for Williams County. These records have enabled me to add my photos to memorials with confidence. As many of you know, sometimes we encounter stones that have been so worn down by time and weather that they are unreadable. Her records allow me the ability to cross check the photos with placement of the graves and to identify those unreadable stones. THANK YOU KRIS!!!

Also, I came across this poem on another contributor's profile and it perfectly conveys my thoughts and feelings as I walk the cemeteries.. so with his permission I've borrowed it from his page and here it is..

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY
BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

Hi
Hi there, I'm in Toledo! I'm not sure I'm going to get up that way, but my mom is talking about moving to Montpelier, so maybe next year?! I'm here until the 12th if you are down this way any.

My dad would like to cntact the Madison Twp trustees and I think you gave me info to reach them once, but I would have no idea where to look. Would you be able to get me that info when you have a chance?

Talk to you soon!
Kris

RE: Transfers made
I don't have your number. I got a new phone last year and I didn't save all of my numbers. Please send to me at daughertykr@gmail.com.

I wish I could help with the cemetery but I will be busy helping my mom with her PT after surgery. I could get away for a few hours though. I want to walk where my ancestors walked. Maybe she'll be doing fantastic though and I can get away even longer?!

I hope all is well!!

Ezra Benton
I understand. I too have researching my genealogy for a long time. Have you taken a look at Byron Benton's biography that I have posted on his memorial? There is some information about Ezra. The biography also indicates that Byron went to Medina, Ohio with an uncle in clothing, which in my search must be Elijah Cook Benton. It also indicates that Ezra E. was the eldest from a large family.

RE: Brown Family
Thank you for the offer but I'm just a distant cousin through the Scholl line doing some descendancy research.

Thank you for maintaining their memorials.

RE: David Waller Photo
Hi Sandi,
I checked the photo in question, and I had copied it from the Williams County, Ohio 1980 book. I'm looking at the photo right now at the Bryan Library. You're correct, he does look like a very old man in the photo.

RE: David Waller Photo
I'm not sure where I got this picture. Let me get back to you on Monday. I'm here in Ohio for the summer and I don't have all my stuff with me.
