Thank you for taking pictures for all of us. Milton and Muriel were my grandparents.

RE: Naomi Hileman
Hi Mary,

I greatly appreciate both your quick response and research efforts. You mentioned that this individual never married. If I understand you correctly, Hileman would then be this woman's birth name?

The reason I'm asking is just for clarity. My birth mother was in fact married to a Hileman in the early 1940's. However, after a brief marriage she for some reason still kept the married name Hileman until she passed some 60 years later.

I'm sorry to be a pest. It's been a long search for me over the past several years that has yielded a lot of family information including photos. But the one thing I want the most still remains elusive. And that is to find my mother's final resting place. So at this point I just don't want to leave any stone unturned. I hope you can understand. Thanks again.

Most Sincerely,

Naomi Hileman
Hi Mary,

I was hoping you might be able to help me. I'm an adoptee currently in search of my birth mother. Her name is Naomi Korn Hileman. She passed away in 2002 in the state of New Jersey. I won't bore you with the details of trying to get any birth parent info from the state of NJ but I will say that I was able to learn that although my mother had passed away in NJ there is no burial record for her on file which is required by the state.

I know this is kind of a long shot but I was wondering if you could provide me with any additional (basic) background info on the Naomi Hileman buried at Hill Grove.

Thanks in advance,

RE: Mary Hall Coleman
Concerning the John and Mary (Boyer) Coleman picture. John and Mary had at least three boys and two girls. Their sons born in: 1838,1842 & 1847. The son born in 1847 would have been 9 years old when his Mother, Mary (Boyer), passed in 1856. In the picture, the boys are older than 9 years of age. Maybe John re-married and the woman is his 2nd wife. John or his father married a woman by the last name of, Defenbaugh. Thank you for your time.

Small world! I believe Jacob and Pauline are my cousin's husband's grandparents.
If you send me your email in a private message I will send you their obits.

Burton (Berton) Bruce Buchanan
I was wondering if you have access to the list of burials in the Stettler Cemetery. I'm trying to find my great uncle Burton (Berton) Bruce Buchanan. His obit only states that he was to be buried Sept 18 1973 in Miamisburg.
