Bio and Links
Bio Photo IF I have personally transcribed a grave for HIGHLAND Cemetery, I have physically seen the GRAVE. I photo transcribed the first round, not all pics are clear so I go back and take a better picture.....

Currently in process of retaking better pictures, and replacing the current ones I have posted for Highland Cemetery.

As of 18 Sep 2014, I spoke to a couple of grave diggers who were at the cemetery, they did not know who owns Highland, nor does anyone else, and sadly they don't believe anyone actually knows who all is even buried there; ie old burials.

I am a Shonkwiler researcher, I scour the net for all the information I can find. I am also m_shonkwiler on Ancestry.

I transferred the record for M Richard Shonkwiler. I also wondered if you know the story behind the headstone? It's unusual. #136763811

This is my husband's line as well. We no longer live in Scioto Co, but we visit about once a year. I search for basically for my grown children and grandchildren. I grew up there as well. Which site did you join to get these obituaries? I have, ancestry, MyHeritage, and familysearch. I'm sure I would find more things on such a site for his line and maybe mine.

RE: Shonkwiler's
Hi - thanks! Yes, that is my mom. Please email me - I'd love to talk to you more and find out more about you and which branch you're from. My grandpa had one of the physical books from 1977 but since he's passed we haven't been able to find it. I would love to get a copy or find out how/where to. I'm going to spell out my email with spaces to keep bots from picking it up. just put it all together with the @ instead of "at". It's cat rionna rain at

Look forward to chatting more!

Hi - I'm new to this site and to this research. My maternal grandfather is Carl Shonkwiler who was born in West Portsmouth Ohio and died in Oak Grove, MO. I'm just starting down the path of tracing my lineage. Thank you for the information you've added.
