Bio and Links
Bio Photo Recently there was a glitch at Find a Grave; contributors were not notified when a photo request had been completed. I was not able to send a note of thanks because I did not know the photo had been posted. PLEASE accept my thanks now.
So many people have been very helpful to me; thank you for your ongoing support! I know many researchers will appreciate our efforts.
I enjoy family history, it is like solving a large puzzle. I am still working full time so the hours I have to take pictures and add them are limited.
I have mostly added only family members in the past. There are several cemeteries Scrubgrass Stone Presbyterian Church Cemetery, Big Bend Methodist Church Cemetery, North Washington Union Cemetery, Annisville (New Salem) Cemetery, Mt. Varnum, Prairie, Allegheny, Pleasant Valley and East Unity Presbyterian Church Cemetery that are now completely added to Find a Grave (or at least as complete as I could find records). I have many family members buried in these cemeteries. I will do my best to update the other cemeteries.
I like to travel and often visited many of these cemeteries. I hope to visit them again soon.

RE: Edward Doty
Thank you for the kind gesture,but actually I wasn't looking @ Edward Doty as a family link,but was searching for my great grandparents bios. out of curiosity. I had put some info. on my grandfathers link,then Ms.Trapp was kind enough to share vital info.about when,where & how he died,which was great and had asked me if I had done any research on Edward Doty as a possible ancestry link. I found whom I believe is my great grandmothers gravesite,according to the death information. However there wasn't any family mentioned. But,and I understand, that many gravesites from long ago and even today,do not have much info.,whether they be on Find A Grave/ or a cemetery headstone.. Unfortunately family history is left off. I really appreciate the dedication and time that you and all contributors put into your research. All the best to you.

RE: Edward Doty
I did the DNA test that proves that I'm descended from Edward Doty. Last I heard, the society wasn't accepting DNA as proof. My dad's memorial, 131159078, has my line.

Mary A. Miller - Grave # 132542978
Good evening.Thanks to you, I was able to find information on Mary A. Miller, who is buried in Grave # 132542978. She was my great-grandmother and her maiden name was McGinnis. Do you have any more information on her parents, birthplace, etc. Any additional information would be greatly appreciated!

Thomas W. Horseman
Jo A,
Thank you so much for going to New Lexington Cemetery and photographing Thomas W. Horseman's headstone for me. The inscription confirms that he is my 3rd great grandfather. Thank you for taking the time and effort in fulfilling my request so quickly.
With sincere appreciation,

You may want to make a correction on Simon's notes on Find A Grave. It states he D: Aug 1931. His second wife Sadie or Sarah O'Hara D: 1927. Your comments show Sadie or Sarah married a Mr Fye AFTER Simon died. She was actually married to Mr Fye FIRST on June 7 1883 and he DIED June 11 1894. Info from the marriage record for Simon and Sadie. Thank you for all the work you do on this site.

Thank you for updating the memorial today. I've had him in my tree for a while now but never tried looking for any of the family on Find A Grave. Thomas' sister Hannah Jane (my 3Rd great grandmother) married a Pennington... they are the ones buried in Annisville Cemetery. My fingers are crossed on someone adding a picture of the tombstone! I might even have to take a ride out there to do it.. haha

cemetery names
Greetings, From your photo of Stone Church on findagrave, the bldg looks different than the St Paul's Church - am wondering if these two church/cemeteries, today, are the same location?
Our early family members appear to be buried between them, at least one instance, husband in one, wife in the other.
Will appreciate any clarification you may have.
