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.

Broadrick - Cary Cemetery
Rick, back on June 14th or so, you located a stone for Isaac & Lydia Broadrick (Bradrick) for me at Cary Cemetery. Since others have tried and failed, I was wondering if you might offer some directions which would help me locate it when I am next out that way (assuming you remember where it was). A few sentences, a simple hand-drawn map, a screen print from Google Earth with the approximate spot noted, anything that might be helpful would be appreciated. If you wish to email me something, please do so at jlbrad (at) ptd (dot) net. I don't wish to impose, but this might be the only lead I ever will have.

Thanks - Jack Bradrick

RE: Pierce photos
Looks like you found them! I remembered them being in the old section at the top of the hill. The Pierce's are from my husband's family and I made a trip to the cemetery to try and find Samuel Pierce. It was really interesting to walk the cemetery and find that many buried there and the names were already familiar to me. I photographed all of the Pierce's I could find. Samuel was married to Loretta "Lettie" Dart and she is buried with their son and daughter in Oak Grove.

Glad I could help out and I hope you had a nice day on your trip.
