Bio Photo Strangers in the Box
By Pamela A. Harazim

Come, look with me inside this drawer, In this box I've often seen, At the pictures, black and white, Faces proud, still, serene. I wish I knew the people, These strangers in the box, Their names and all their memories Are lost among my socks. I wonder what their lives were like.
How did they spend their days? What about their special times? I'll never know their ways. If only someone had taken time To tell who, what, where, when, These faces of my heritage Would come to life again. Could this become the fate
Of the pictures we take today? The faces and the memories Someday to be tossed away? Make time to save your pictures, Seize the opportunity when it knocks, Or someday you and yours could be
The strangers in the box.

If there are any graves that I have put on here that are in your family lines and you want them I will Transfer them. With the understanding that I would like to keep my family lines. I love going to cemeteries and I feel if we dont get the information from their graves now that they maybe lost. Within my short time of doing these photos and graves, I have seen with my own eyes some of these graves are unreadable now. But these pictures have brought them back to life. Find a grave has guidelines on transfers, mine is if you ask for a transfer, you should be able to have it unless I want it for my tree and edits. My daughter is still young but I plan to show her What my mother and I have done here and she too can carry on this adventure.

I am doing family genealogy on the DeVore, Kirk, Clark, Ward, Messenger, these are the main ones...

I checked for your request for this stone in Reston Cemetery but found it in Pipestone, a few miles east.

Photo has been uploaded there. Cheers, Sharon

Daniel W. Garwood, Hardin County, OH
You have this young man attached to the wrong Garwood family -- but the right Morrow family.

His parents were David G. Garwood (1830-1906) and Rachael A. (Morrow) Garwood 1834-1864. They were married June 28, 1860, in Delaware, OH, and both are buried in Columbiana County, OH.

Rachel died ten days after Daniel Garwood's birth in 1864. David Garwood remarried in 1866 to Emma Casselberry, by whom he had a daughter, Laura.

Daniel went to live with his maternal grandparents, Charles and Esther (McElroy) Morrow, in Mt. Victory, Hardin County.

Daniel's brother, Charles Garwood (c. 1861-??) lived with their uncle, Charles W. and Elizabeth Ann (Beamer) Morrow, also in Hardin County, when both the 1870 and 1880 US censuses were taken. Charles W. Morrow was the son of Charles Esther Morrow and brother of Rachel (Morrow) Garwood.

Lindseys in Fehl Cemetery

I duplicated my family records. I am trying to defer to your memorials as you created them first. Please help me with my effort.

Thanks so much,

Please ignore my edits for James F, Richards. I had thought it was a duplicate of Rev. James Richards, and it clearly is not. Thanks,

Matilda Perrill Richards is my 5th Great Grandmother.

Birth JULY 27, 1797 Hampshire, West Virginia, United States

I would love to maintain this Find a Grave and add history notes to her as well as husband James...

Rev James Richards Find A Grave Memorial# 21874860
Matilda Richards Find A Grave Memorial# 21874857

Their daughter Sarah Ann Richards kept a beautiful album full of pictures which I was fortunate enough to receive. I've been adding to Find A Grave sites and uploading in Ancestry so that everyone can enjoy them. I have carte de vistas of Matilda and Rev. Richards and most of their children.
