Bio and Links
I grew up and live in (Athens)Southeast Ohio. When I have the time, I enjoy doing research on my family history. I enjoy walking through cemeteries looking for family markers. If you wish to use any photos that I have posted you may. I take the photos and post them hoping to help others find their relatives markers. As long as I am not directly related to the person I am willing to transfer memorials to family members. I post the memorials so that family members who are searching can locate them. Then allow them to take care of their ancestors memorial, if they wish. The number of memorials I manage does not mean anything to me. To me it is all about getting a correct memorial posted and hopefully then taken over by a family member.
I take many photos and sometimes will take over 200 photos a day. I try to get good photos, but some photos may unfortunately not be as good as I would like. Sunny glares across the stone makes some photos hard to view. I will usually post them anyways and many times will plan to try and retake the photo as soon as I am back to that cemetery. If I have taken a photo for you and the photo is not as good as you would like please tell me and I will be more than happy to try and retake. If it is an old marker I will let you know if I am able to get a better photo or not.

1830s "Portland" cemetery
Hi Rick,

Question...any idea what the current name/location is for an 1830's cemetery that was named "Portland Cemetery?"

Looking for the grave of an Inman H Henderson who died on June 22, 1913 and was buried there on June 24th, 1913.

Any help is appreciated,
JP & Lori Barnard

Thank you for posting the Alva Casey gravestone photo. It's nice to see he was among those who were memorialized with more than a mere number there. The Ridges is such a sorrowful place. I'm grateful you took the time.
