Bio and Links
I have always been interested in genealogy and there are always those of us who find it fulfilling to visit friends and family burial sites, from time to time. This is an excellent way of doing it without the travel. And if you do travel,you can find them easier when you have some information like you find here.

Anyone wishing to have a memorial transferred to them, need only state your relationship and fill out the edit with a request.Make sure to submit all corrections using the Edit tab. If you are a family member, I will typically transfer the memorial to you. You know more about the individual then I do. I just ask that if someone who is even closer to that individual reaches out to you, pay it forward and transfer the memorial to them! I welcome any new information that helps make my entries easier to follow, more informative, or to correct some error that I may have made.

I am especially interested in knowing/contacting anyone with knowledge of the family of Campbell. That would include members of the Cornell family with roots in Wapakoneta Oh or Lima, OH area.

Thank you.

RE: Catharina Wolf
I think you are probably right -- even though you can't read the letters, the length of the words on the stone below the lamb look like they could say Hervey Edward. I'll post the lamb photo to his memorial with a caption.
There is another child, B Clarence who died at 1 yr in 1869.
I've decided to post the overall photo to all four memorials: Catharina, George Adam, Hervey Edward, and B Clarence. I'm changing the caption to include information from the inscription book for this cemetery.
I can always make changes if someone comes up with research to explain this group of stones.

Catharina Wolf
I found the grave marker for Catharina Wolf. It has fallen on its side so I turned the photo on her memorial. The adjacent side has engraving that I can not read - all I can make out is the name Wolf.
There is also a lamb monument that I can not read well enough to post on a memorial. And the tall monument definitely says Wolf but I can't read anything else.
I'm putting an overall photo on Catharina's memorial. If your research helps to identify these please let me know and I will post photos to the correct memorials.
In the overall photo Catharina's marker is on the ground behind the lamb.

URL error
it means it no longer works and hasn't worked for about 4 years. I am removing it. We have over 200,000 of these to fix.

RE: Philip & Esther Siffert
Ha, just read your profile and your research interests. I'm from Lima. Don't have any of the names you're interested in as part of my tree, but I'll be sure to keep this in mind. :D

RE: Philip & Esther Siffert
I totally understand and Philip & Esther are my 4x great grandparents (through dau Rosanna and her dau Mary J Keel Sigler) so it's important to me to see correct information as well. Lots of info in the book I referenced on pages 862 & 863. John Keel and kin are referenced on pg 859 if that's of interest to you. Here's the link, my new cousin: :)

They are separate cemeteries. The correct cemetery is Oakwood Catholic Cemetery
Hello, There is a duplicate memorial for this man and it shows it is located in the Catholic section 17026091
We need to know which one is accurate and to delete the incorrect one. Please check this out so that we can keep this record as accurate as possible. Thank you. Michigan mother

Bruce line
I've been working on the Bruce line today and am focusing on Malinda Davis Bruce. I noticed that many of the Bruce's are not in findagrave. Do you have any pictures, documents or information about Malinda?

I am working on entering cemetery records from Washington Township Permit books onto an Excel spreadsheet and it shows that Julia's interment date was October 3, 1911. Her Find A Grave record shows Nov 3, 1911 as her date of death. Could this be an incorrect entry I have in the book? Do you have any documentation to show that she died in November? I would be interested in finding this out so that the correct information is put on the spreadsheet.

RE: Ada Clark

The flag that went up for me was the marriage date of 14 Dec 1893 conflicts with the birth date of 1882. That would mean that she was married at the age of 11 years and had her first child at 14 (which could be possible but unlikely).

The U S Census for 1880 shows Ada as an 8 year old with a bit of confusion, Charles is the father, but the mother is Mary both at the correct ages to match the Find A Grave. /pal:/MM9.1.1/M8ST-SQ4 I did not go farther in to this questionable information.

I then checked the U S Census and found that in 1900 U S Census she was 28 yrs old meaning she was born in 1872. Here the U S Census also states that she was born in Jun 1872; has been married for 7 years and has 3 living children out of 4 births. Look at the original census for 1900 to see the details.

In 1920 U S Census she is 47 yrs meaning she was born in 1873

In 1930 U S Census she is 56 yrs meaning she was born in 1874

The variant in year born is normal for census studies.

While most times the grave stones are correctly labeled it does happen that they might not be correct. In this case I feel she was born in 1872 not 1882 and the grave stone is incorrectly made due to multiple U S Census records and the very young age for her marriage (also confirmed in the 1900 census)

I hope this explains why I think she was born in 1872
