Bio and Links
Bio Photo I research the surnames of Limes, Duvall, Lombard, McKee, Szczepankiewicz and Zagorsky.

My locations of ancestry for my Limes and Duvall lines are in Lorain, Franklin, Pickaway and Champaign Counties, in Ohio; and in Virginia: Frederick County in the early 1800s for my Limes, and McKee lines.

I am a descendant of Dr. Jeremiah Duvall of Bedford, Pennsylvania.

For my Szczepankiewicz line: The areas of ancestry are: Zlotkow, Milaczew, and Kazimierz Biskupi, Poland.

For my Zagorsky ancestry: Resita in present day Romania (formerly Resica in Austria-Hungary.)

For those with a sincere interest in cemetery preservation in the state of Ohio, there is a closed Facebook Group: "Preserving Ohio's Cemeteries" that addresses the issues caused by the use of improper gravestone cleaning, repairing, and re-setting; among other aspects of what elements encompasses cemetery preservation and gravestone conservation.

https://www.facebook.com/groups/PreservingOhioCemeteries/

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Please remember that just because someone holds a cemetery preservation workshop does not necessarily mean that the person or company holding it adheres to all of the widely held best practices for cleaning, repairing, and re-setting gravestones.

For example, some use power tools such as Nyalox plastic brush wheels attached to power drills that rotate at high speeds. Using Nyalox brushes removes the outer layer of stone or marble. It is a totally unapproved method for application on gravestones by the Association for Gravestone Studies, and the NCPTT of the National Park Service.

Attempt to learn ahead of time, before attending a workshop, if the methods and products that will be demonstrated and used are aggressive (think power washers and power tools), abrasive (think wire brushes or metal scrapers), or invasive (think metal pins and rods) as these are just some of the methods that lead to or directly cause destructive damage that are irreversible on a gravestone.

So, please to gain a well rounded education, consider attending more than one cemetery preservation workshop if you are intent on learning the best practices of hands-on gravestone cleaning, repairing, and resetting yourself.

Always think: DO NO HARM -- Less is more when it comes to working with fragile old original gravestones -- which are truly one of a kind historic artifacts.

If your goal is to read and photograph tombstone inscriptions: Many gravestone inscriptions can be read by reflecting light on the letters and numbers, or by shining one of the newer LED lights on the front of the gravestones to bring out the inscriptions for transcriptions or photography purposes.

RE: 163052062
Death records began in Texas officially on 1 Jan 1903. Texans, being a little red-neck, did not take to this invasion of their privacy so by ca. 1920 about 40% of the deaths were actually recorded in the individual counties.

Made the changes to the document. Also, went over the 1850 census for RRCo TX and did confirm the handwriting style as you suggested. Went thru the marriage records for the county and could find no remarriage for a surviving widow within 5 years. Also there were no marriages for a child that could fit either. As there is no remnant family found on the 1880 census I have to presume that this was a single man and with his passing all traces of his lineage has disappeared.

RE: For Frederick Limes
The more you get into genealogical history, the more you will come to realize that there are many mistakes in the transcription of a document --- and we have made them ourselves. About all we as pseudo-historians can do is to present any and all information pertaining to a person and hope some of it is correct

Mary Waln, wife of William Waln
I am wondering what maiden name your records show for Mary Waln (1792-1879) at the Walnut Creek Cemetery, since our records do not match.

RE: Mary Waln question
Hi Linda. There is a marriage record 19 September 1844 of Elias Zimmerman to Mary Waln in Fayette County, OH. Married by Thomas Ellis, J.P. I have so many Walns intermarried into my family that I wondered if they were all related so figured I would start digging. Later Mary Zimmerman marries John Todhunter, in 1879
