I'm sure you saw Leonard Earl's DC gives parents' birthplaces as Germany for both. I don't subscribe to Fold3 but found Civil War info on either Ancestry or family search. Too bad that sunken Diehl stone doesn't show dates and other names. John is listed on the 1880 census in Belmont Ohio with parents and that record gives his birthplace as Hesse Cassel Germany and his siblings born in Ohio. So I don't know where he was born.

that was fast reply Zack...I usually hyphenate the maiden name with the first married name to include both and wherever possible link to both spouses. If possible, of course. I'm sure you've seen Benjamin's Civil War pension info with his service info. Was Jane sister to his first wife Margaret? I tried to find where Leonard was born but couldn't even find census records, I suppose due to different spelling of Johnson/Johnston, etc.

Hi Zack, you sent a link to Mollie's mother but wouldn't she be Bellville-Johnson Aplin? Might you know where Leonard Johnson is so can link them all together? I'm just questioning for more details to include. thanks!

Hi Zack,

I have uploaded an updated photo. I think it is better than the earlier version.

Sorry for that last message.

Thank you for the info on Charles Artman's parents. I found them on Findagrave and added links to his memorial.

Thanks Again

Thank you for the information on the duplicate cemetery album. I did not realize the names were so similar. I checked the other cemetery and those names were not added yet so I added them to it. You are the creator of their sons memorial at 110081276 Harry Artman. Can you please link him to his parents. Father: 127562790 Mother: 127562732.

Again thank you for catching that error. It is greatly appreciated.

RE: Theodore Yocum and Cordelia Yocum Long
I totally understand. I've run into the same problems myself. Absolutely frustrating!

RE: Ronald Webb
Searched both an existing burial record (inclusive up to 1980), and also spent past few years transcribing all grave markers in the Mt Tabor cemetery. You may be right as far as him not having a proper burial record or gravestone. In my search of family history records for immediate family, I was told by the bureau of vital statistics that up until the 1980s, and still occasionally today, births and deaths of children up to school age we're not reported with any consistency. There are always slightly sunken unmarked graves in every cemetery I've been to. Some can clearly be identified as infant or small child by size of grave. Another "tradition" I find around here is that the cemeteries would "donate" space around the edge of the cemetery for families who could not afford to buy a plot to bury their children. Others would have a designated "children" section divided up into little spaces, but without any markers. Mt Tabor does not appear to have done either, but he could be buried in one of the unmarked spaces, or at home as some families, including my own, did with small children.

Hi, Zack.
You're very welcome. Happy to help.
As for obituaries, my online access for the St. Petersburg Times (now the Tampa Bay Times) only goes back to 1987. I see Floyd & Rose passed earlier than that. You might try the Pinellas County RootsWeb list:

Good luck!

RE: Christian Bashar
Hi there! I am related to Christian and Barbara's son, Louis, by marriage (Louis married Margaret Saretta Crawford in Lucas County, Iowa…Maggie was my husband's great grandfather's sister). I have been working on family history with a cousin (she descends from Louis and Maggie's adopted daughter, Lota)…..we would be very interested in Christian and Barbara's obituaries and photos of the graves…and any others you might have! My email is
I wish I could help you more with your research about Anna Wiggins Palmer Bashar or her daughter, Emma. I have just started to research this family though so I only have what I have found on the website and the website. Have you tried the surrounding counties in WV or Ohio for records?? I do know that there are several spellings for the name Bashar.
Thanks for your help!
