The purpose in life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

One can tell the morals of a culture by the way they treat their dead. ~ Benjamin Franklin

To Err Is Human, To Correct Divine. If you come across any errors or have additions to the memorials I maintain, please let me know. I strive to provide accurate information and will be happy to make any changes necessary.

Lloyd N White
I am sorry to say that you have Lloyd's place of birth wrong. He was born in Troy Twp, Geauga County, Ohio.

Troy, Miami County is down near Dayton, Ohio. I have a copy of his obituary. He is a relative of my husband.

Elisha Mentoria DeHart
You are right. The birthday 1847 is what was wrong. That is the reason I could not find anything on her.

Thank you ever so much in helping me to connect her to her parents.

I am her 1st cousin 1x removed of wife of great grand uncle.

I have made all the corrections. Also, connected her to her parents.

Thanks again, God Bless, have a great Christmas.

Hi! While I can certainly understand your interest in Daniel, I prefer to hang on to him. That being said, I am always willing to include any info you would like to added, giving you credit for it, of course.

RE: Harry E. Smith
You're welcome. I noticed the date was different but mostly the woman he was buried with not being one of the listed spouses. Such mysteries....I figured it was him. I hope it is the right Harry Smith. The weather is dreadful today.

RE: Leona Irene McGhan Meeker
Unfortunately, no. Though she is my great aunt, I never heard her mentioned by my father. I would guess she was buried in Spokane, although North Idaho is a possibility. Many in my family were buried in unmarked graves and locating them is a bit of a challenge. I will let you know if I ever learn of her whereabouts.

I transferred all the O'Keefe memorials. You should notice that some of them spell the name with two "fs". I posted them with the name spelled the same for all (one "f")but you may want to change them. Enjoy!
