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.

I am not sure if my Photo is any "clearer" but it definitely has more color to it. As to Anna Maria's Stone, I do have a photo of it. It is hard to read. I can read Maria Bart and 1881 on it. the Headstone is laying on the ground.
If you can, Email me and I can send the photo to you. You can decide if you want to post it now, or wait till spring to see if the stone is still there and can be re-set.
My email address is on my Member Page.

|Brad ||RE: Anna Maria Bart memorial|
yes I saw George's headstone and it is quite readable. Anna's name is not inscribed on it.
Should you ever visit his headstone it is in the back row, far right.
You may want to contact the township trustee who is in charge of cemetaries or the township clerk if they have records of her plot. Liverpool township. if you have more info I will try again.

Hi Sandi, The family connections have been made.
|Margaret Gunn||Leonard Bart|
Some death certs can be found on www.familysearch.com. Also my local library has death certs on microfilm for all of Ohio. I would check with your local library if you can't find what you need on familysearch.
|charles hanna||RE: Tennis links|
Yes, you can transfer them and thank you.

You are very close. According to the cemetery transcript, they are Della May and Daniel Rushong. They already have memorials. I am glad you are photographing the cemetery. Kay
