Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Columbiana County in Northeastern Ohio. Since I started my family history research, I have been amazed at the unknown family members I have found so close to my home. I want to honor them by adding them to this site. Thank you to all who place flowers on their memorials. I am a member of the Columbiana County and Mahoning County Chapters of the Ohio Genealogical Society.

Author Unknown

NOTE: I am working closely with my cousin, Joseph Chaplow, and some of my entries are his family. Preference on transfers will go to him.

Researching: Felger, Naughton, Stanyard, Miller, Bailey, Lind, Lynn, Sherry, Cranston, Forney, Stallsmith, Hauptmann, Huch, Hull, Stump, VanFossan/VanFossen, Thoman, Summer(s), Baker, Hartje, & Rukenbrod (to name a few).

PLEASE DO NOT USE MY PERSONAL PHOTOS. Any other use or republishing of them is not permitted. It is a violation of FindaGrave guidelines. If you have an interest in someone, please email me. However, you may copy any headstone picture I've added for your own family tree use. The exception would be using my photos when creating a duplicated FindaGrave memorial. This is not allowed and is against the guidelines. A notation that I was the photographer would be appreciated, if only to assist others who may want to contact me about family. I've received a lot of help in obtaining family headstone pictures from other researchers and want to pay it forward. Thank you.

Please check the cemetery before you make an entry to avoid duplications. I welcome any corrections to information I have entered. Please use the suggest a correction tab on the individual memorial. It's easier for me that way.

I have absolutely no interest in numbers, so I usually transfer out-of-guidelines unless it's someone in my family or the requester does not transfer their own entries in that manner. Just a reminder: Regarding transfers, please remember...just because you are related to someone doesn't mean someone else isn't. Please see F-A-G guidelines regarding transfers. *"The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."

I ask you to remember that the members of this site are volunteers, both for entries and photo requests. They spend time and money to do this out of a love of the past, to memorialize those who have gone before, and in remembrance of beloved family members. It requires cooperation and teamwork. If you don't like to do these things, I respectfully ask that you choose another hobby.

***Please remember this precious child and his family: Camden Fairchild.***

***Please remember this young man, a Fallen Graver, who loved what he did and helped many people: Coady Hatlen. He is missed.***

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4

"Do not stand on my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the mornings hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave & cry;
I am not there, I did not die."
~Mary Frye

Scatter me not to the restless winds
Nor toss my ashes to the sea.
Remember now those years gone by
When loving gifts I gave to thee.
Remember now the happy times
The family ties are shared.
Don't leave my resting place unmarked
As though you never cared.
Deny me not one final gift
For all who came to see.
A simple lasting proof that says
I loved and you loved me.

John Leon Quackenbush was my father. His death is listed as 1995, but was actually 1996. Also, I believe his sister, Virginia, died before 1995. I note that you list yourself as a third cousin, once removed? Perhaps you can tell me the connection?

Thanks. Judith Quackenbush Roberson

Sonner family?

Just curious, are you related to the Sonner family? I keep finding your name in various places of tfamily members that are connected with the Sonner family, but not with that name. In the case I have right now, you connected with additional info for the Correll Family and they connect with my family. With work that I have seen of yours, you do great work!
Best regards
Bruce Sonner

Sorry had to say that Lewis Silvis is not son of Joseph M and Sarah Doverspike.

He is son of John Silvis and wife of 1) Christena____ and 2)Mary E Glunt.

My great grandfather is Lewis Irwin Silvis is son of Joseph M and Sarah Doverspike. Lewis and Mary E Robinson bury at Angeles Abbey Memorial Park, Compton, LA Co, Ca.
I already have Joseph Mark and Sarah Doverspike bury at Saint Marks Lutheran Ch, Eddyville, Arm. Co. on Find A Grave.

You might want to delete Joseph M, Sarah Doverspike, Sibling - Willaim McClellan, Margaret, Emma Catherine and Newton H Silvis, I already have one. Sorry for the trouble.
