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..

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.

Thank you so much for entering the memorial for my great grand uncle. I now feel that this little boy has not been forgotten. I truly appreciate your work in WIlliams county

Not receiving requests
I just happened to be looking at another Find A Grave researcher in my area and I saw your post on not receiving requests. I have experienced the same thing.It was after the crash or just working off of the list on the counies that I always did before. I Was glad to know that I was not the only one. Ellen Headington

RE: Benton photo
All of my photos from Chestnut are posted. The Cem is only 5 to 10 miles away so I can get more easily. I don't know why but I am not getting any photo request from Find A Grave I am going out & shooting what I want. I have 24,000 photos from 9 counties that I am working on & have taken none in the last month.
How are you coming with your work in Williams Co? Thanks for your work.

Jane Webb
Hi Sandi! Is there anything else you can tell me about Jane Webb's grave in Rogers Cemetery? Was she, by chance, in the same area as Joseph Arkwright or Sarah Arkwright Hershey? If she's my Jane Webb, the wife of Benjamin Webb, then she would be Joseph and Sarah's sister....I believe and am trying to prove. Any information would be great! Thank you so much!

RE: Stough Family

Yes, I would like to take you up on your offer to transfer L P Stough and Family to me.

Thanks for uploading the tombstone photo's. One question on the Mary Mercer Photo - can you make out the aged? It looks like 36 to me but it could be 31.

Thanks again

Charles DeWeese
No, I'm not related. The name DeWeese just stuck out because here in Dayton we have a DeWeese park and the homes in that area were very expensive years ago.
As far as a Roy L. Deweese I found this info:
Roy L Deweese
Ohio, Deaths, 1908-1953
birth: October 1891 , Miami, Ohio
death: 10 October 1938 Piqua, Miami, Ohio

siblings:Grace G Deweese, T Carroll Deweese, Lynn H Deweese, Lee H Deweese, Vollie F Deweese, Ernest Deweese

Hope this helps in some small way.

RE: John Bricker
Thank you! Hope to be in contact with you again soon!

RE: John Bricker

I would be more than happy to manage the memorials of any Brickers you have found or find in the future. I am John Bricker's great-grandson, so I am directly related to most of the Bricker's buried in Williams county. I am continuously researching and I will be making attempts to sort out their relationships and history. If there are any names or families you would like me to keep an eye out for as I research, please let me know. I would be more than happy to help. Also, I would be eternally grateful for any photographs you find, as I live 1000 miles away! Thanks for all you do!
