Stewart Cemetery
Hi Cheryl,
I saw that you posted pics for Stewart Cemetery, Bowersville. Do you happen to know if records exist for this cemetery and who the contact person would be? (I have a relative buried in Stewart.) Thanks so much!

BATES Family
Hi Cheryl.. It's always a pleasure to meet a previously unknown cousin. I'm trying to get organized and figure out how this all works and then I'll start posting some things. I'd love to share any info,on the BATES family, that I have which might be helpful although I think you may have a bit more than I at this point. I am in constant touch with George Royal Bates Jr. who is 93 years old and also Margaret Joan Cronan (BATES)who is 83 so if you think they could be any help to you in filling in some gaps let me know. Thanks for your reply and if I can be any help I'd be more than happy to send any info that I have here.

RE: Woodland Cem., Xenia
Cheryl, I worked with 2 local gentleman to photograph the remaining sections of Woodland that had not been previously photographed or recorded. They did much more work than I did I (Bernard Green and Bob Messemore). I came to the project a bit late. For the most part, we split work by cemetery sections (physical markers). Later this Spring, I will be adding GPS coordinates which are much more precise than plot information. I use an iPad for this. Similar to the cemetery volume you worked from, the Greene County Chapter of OGS had developed one covering Woodland. This coupled with a physical walk through of the cemetery provided the basis for the F.A.G. entries that were made(with sections). To my knowledge Woodland has not been directly involved.

Again, thanks for all the entries you made for other local cemeteries. They are very valuable and appreciated.

Hook Cemetery Greene Co Ohio
Cheryl, thank you for all of the entries you have made. While reviewing a published book entitled Greene Cou ty Ohio Inscriptions, Vol III, for Hook Cemetery, it seems some of the last nam s of persons buried in Hook Cemetery are listed as Hooke vs. Hook. Others are shown as Hook, however, all of your entries for this cemeterey are just Hook. Could you share the source that you used? I am working on an ancestry tree for this family and want to ensure I have correct names.

Bates Family
Hi Cheryl, I was researching some info on my Grandmother Margaret F. Hyland (Bates) and a picture of her grave marker popped up with your name attached. You also have a lot of info on the Bates family and, judging by your name, I was wondering if you were related to Paula Theroux of Stoneham Ma. who was one of the Bates family famous "Jones Girls". I was talking with George Royal Bates Jr. yesterday but he didn't recognize the name. My mother, Margaret M. Davidson (Hyland), talked about the "Jones Girls often and I recognized the name Theroux from her old phone book. If you could let know I'd love to hear from you. Thanks.
