Jacob Bartholomew
Hi Marcia, Do you have any backup for the Jacob Bartholomew that is listed as dead earlier than the Jacob Bartholomew that is buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Ashtabula Co.? After many years of searching, I'm out of ideas and am beginning to think that the Bartholomew book is in error as far as Col. Jacob Bartholomew's death date is concerned. I do have the probate records, etc. that list all of his children as they dispose of the land Jacob had left them. My third great grandmother is one of the children mentioned.

Betsey Orson Bessey Farrar

Hi Marcia,

Thank you for sending the links to Betseys parents. I have made that edit. I declined the edit to change the spelling variation of her name from Bessey to Besse, because it does not appear either way on her gravestone, and she is linked to her parents which have it spelled as Besse.

By her generation, many of the Besse/Bessey were adding the "Y". Anyone searching Novelty Cemetery for "Besse" will see her listed as "Bessey"... but they would not see her if they searched Novelty Cemetery for "Bessey" if she was listed as "Besse".

I hope this helps. Maybe we can find more of her siblings.

Sincerely, Tim Cooper

Please send me the sources for the changes that you are requesting
As I don't recall what edits I sent to you to which you are referring - here is this:

"Sacred to the memory of Henry Hook of this place, born March 23rd 1814, died November 11th 1871. Also of Alfred, Ann and Stephen, children of the above who died in infancy. Left surviving: Celia his wife, 4 sons and 2 daughters. Also of Celia wife of the above, died November 23rd 1885, aged 73 years"
From: Woodchurch Local and Family History website

On the photo of his headstone which I placed on your listing for him, you can read his birth and death dates

Hope this helps

I am sorry, but there is no record of either of them being buried in Kosciusko county. Would they each of used a middle name possibly?

Bartholomew graves in Evergreen
Hello Marcia,

I have taken your photo requests before and would be very happy to take these Bartholomew requests in Evergreen cemetery, Geneva, OH. However, the ground is currently covered in snow, so any photos would be of a very low quality, if any. I will try to take these photos when the snow melts and the ground can be seen around the headstones. Unfortunately, this probably wont happen until spring. If by chance, someone else fulfills your request with substandard photos in the snow, please email me the names of whom you want photos and I would be glad to take them when the ground clears. Thank you very much.

I can find no record of this person being buried in Clinton County. I have checked with Sugar Grove & they also have no record of her burial.

Lyshers @ Waterloo Cem Indian
Please know that on both John and Lemuel's memorials it states that there are no headstones for their grave sites. Just to be sure, I checked with the sexton and he told me that Rachel, their mother, is the only Lysher listed in the original books. I surmise that the lot was purchased in her name and that Rachel, her husband Thomas, John and Lemuel are all buried there sine obits state that they were. I did post a picture of the lot.

I saw your comment to contact you if related to the Pickett family. My 2nd ggrandmother, Charity Elizabeth Pickett Sheffer was sister to Aaron Heathcote Pickett, father of Harry E Pickett.

I've been out to Hancock County once and found family graves at Mount Blanchard Cemetery. I hope to go again soon and photograph more of the family markers.

I am always looking for cousins and willing to share pictures, docs, and info. I also have a family tree on ancestry at

"Hiram Hicks 113120267
Looking at the 1860 census in Rowe, Franklin, Massachusetts, I find Lydia with her children up to Herbert (no Merritt). In 1870 in the same location we find Hiram Hick's son, who was also named Hiram with wife Charlotte and children. One of them named Merritt A. Hicks. His brothers Herbert and James are also living with him. I think the 2nd Merritt on you list of children was really his grandson, not his son."

I will try to look into this when I have a chance...have lots of DR appts and lose track of what I am doing easily.

I had declined your auto-edit to remove Amelia Charlotte Brown Hicks as mother prior to seeing your typed are correct, I was confusing first names Amelia and Almina - appreciate your keen eye and I have now deleted the link per your suggestion.
thank you
