Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am the daughter of Robert Edward (Bobby) Miller and Paula Louise Williams-Cantrell Miller. My grandparents include my paternal grandparents, Robert George Miller and the late Elizabeth Irene Wickins Miller and my maternal grandparents, the late Bruce Ivy Williams and Alma Faye Brown Williams(my mom's birth parents) and the late Virgil John Cantrell and Bernice Wisehart Cantrell (my mom's adopted parents).I was married in 2006 to my husband, Kenneth Lee Jackson, and in 2010, we had our first child, Keafer Lee.

My grandparents are my biggest heros! They have always supported me in all I have done. All I have left is my dad's dad, Robert George Miller. He is a WWII Navy veteran and went to Washington, D.C. on the National Honor Flight.

I became very interested in my family history in 2005 and I have also started helping my mother-in-law with my husband's side of the family. I love to go to cemeteries and find my family and to walk around and wonder about other peoples stories.

I hope I can help a lot of people on here, I am willing to go to cemeteries close to me and find headstones for everyone who has a request. I am also willing to transfer memorials that are not my immediate family.

Anna and Abraham Wilbur
Hello Dana,

Thank you so much for updating the marriage info for Anna and Abraham. There has been so much confusion about Anna's identity and just about everyone on Ancestry has it wrong. Hopefully we have cleared up some of the confusion. Bob Saunders did a nice chalking of the two headstones if you want to see them.

Thank you so much for creating these memorials, how are you related to them? Is there any chance you would transfer the management of these two memorials to me? I'm going to continue to research them and don't want to bug you with changes and updates.

Sincerely,
Tina

Anna ARNOLD vs. Anna Lockwood ARNOLD & Charcoal Furnaces
Dana, I am the individual who wrote to you and requested removal of the name "Lockwood" from Anna Arnold, who is married to Abraham Wilbur. Thank you for doing so. I am happy to share the research I gathered that proves they are two different women.

I also located a digitized version of the book, "Hanging Rock Iron Region of Ohio: An Authentic Narrative of the Past, with an Extended Survey of the Industrial and Commercial Development", authored by Eugene B. Willard, Daniel. W. Williams, George O. Newman & Charles B. Taylor, published in 1916, which is a 1340 page, 48,335KB pdf document. This book is a narrative incorporating West Virginia, Kentucky & Ohio containing a wealth of historical information on those areas.

I also created a pdf of the book "Charcoal Furnaces of Hanging Rock", authored by Virgil & Marguerite Ramsey, published in 1989, which is a 93 page, 19,903KB pdf document. This book gives information concerning the charcoal furnaces of southeastern Ohio and northeaster Kentucky, most of which were out of operation by 1900. Information from gravestones during the furnace era are included, along with an index.

RE: Abraham and Anna Arnold Wilbur
Hi Dana,

It's so good to hear from you. You will also need to remove Joseph and Deborah Hacker Arnold as the parents, they are Anna Lockwood Arnold's parents.

Thanks so much, we are still trying to verify the cemetery. There is no Paine Cemetery in Hamden, but a volunteer went to the Lincoln Cemetery where it was published in a book that they were buried and he didn't see their headstones. I sent him pictures of the headstones so he is going to go back and try again.

He said that the Bundy-Paine Cemetery in Wellston is well documented and that the Anna and Abraham Arnold Wilbur are not listed there.

The mystery continues, thanks for your help!

Anna Arnold Wilbur
Hello, I am researching my 3rd great grandmother, Anna Arnold Wilbur and am confused with the information you show for her parents. There is an Anna Lockwood Arnold who I thought was my grandmother, but she has a different date of birth (dob) and date of death (dod).

The two Anna's were both born in Providence, RI, but my grandmother came to Ohio while the other Anna stayed in Rhode Island. I am comfortable with the dob and dod, now I need to find out why they both show the same parents. Do you have any documentation showing that Joseph and Deborah Arnold were the parents of Anna Arnold Wilbur? It would be so helpful to have that information. Thank you so much, I look forward to hearing from you.

"Paine Cemetery" in Ohio
Hi Dana,

I came across some information that may be helpful concerning the "Paine Cemetery". According to the book, "Charcoal Furnaces of Hanging Rock", Abraham WILBUR (Find A Grave Memorial# 34130740) & Anna ARNOLD WILBUR (Find A Grave Memorial# 34130772) were buried in the Lincoln Furnace Cemetery of Milton Township, Jackson County, Ohio. I don't know if Paine Cemetery and the Lincoln Furnace Cemetery are one and the same called by different names, but I wanted to share what I found to day as I was researching in the Salt Lake City Genealogy Library. I emailed copies of the pages from the book and created one attachment with all the pages. I hope this helps answer any questions concerning this cemetery. Let me know if this was helpful or not.

Blessings,
