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.

Photo of Frank Bechtol
I would like to thank who ever put the picture of Frank Bechtol on his memorial. His brother is my great grandfather. Frank is my great Uncle. I have pictures of some of the Bechtols who are buried there. When I can figure out how to post them I will. Thank you again for the picture of my relative. Robert Bechtol

W.S. Beatty -95489169
Sandi,

I have submitted some edits for W.S. Beatty, who is buried in Kunkle cemetery. He is a member of my extended Beatty family, many of whom are buried in Floral Grove at West Unity. I would accept management of his memorial and that of his wife, Dianna, 95489190 should you wish to transfer them to me. Thank you for creating the memorials and for taking the photographs.

Auble in the Cogswell Cemetery
Hello, Sandi...
Thank you for all your efforts on Find A Grave. I found your Auble memorials and tombstone pictures when I was searching for more information on my Auble connections. I had created a memorial for Orsymus Auble and placed him in the Floral Grove Cemetery in Pioneer by mistake, since he had died in Pioneer. I have now transferred him to the Cogswell Cemetery (http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GScid=40340&GRid=115516181) per your tombstone picture. It's obvious that your memorial and mine are for the same person. What would be the easiest way to straighten this out? You can contact me by the e-mail on my profile if you wish.
Thanks again. Della

Photo requests
Hi there Sandi! I'm having same problem as you in no longer getting the requests for the cemeteries in the area. I even re-did my info to Find A Grave for to see it wasn't anything up with my email account connection. Have you gotten anywhere with your problem? If so what did you have to do? Sincerely, Mimmi
