Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started looking for my roots just about a year ago. What a neat hobby this is. I discovered the Find a Grave website during my family member searches on Ancestry.com. I have really enjoyed walking through old cemeteries not only looking for my ancestors but also find it rewarding helping others find a loved one from their past.

RE: Stevenson Cemetery
Everything I currently have photos for are on the site. There are many listed as 'Unknown' as they are very hard to read.

RE: Margaret Young - Limestone Cemetery, Graytown Ohio
Please review the Find A Grave requirements to request a transfer. If Margaret meets those requirements I'll gladly transfer.

RE: Elizabeth Stevenson
FamilySearch is free and looks for many different kinds of records simultaneously. I don't have a subscription to Ancestry.com, so I can't make a comparison. (As you probably know, Ancestry recently bought Find A Grave.) If you're interested in trying HeritageQuest, you probably don't have to go to the brick-and-mortar library. Check your library's web site. See if they have a tab for genealogy and/or local history, and see if they have tabs for databases. I access HeritageQuest from home by entering my regular library card number into the library's web site. With HeritageQuest, you have to enter the exact spelling they have indexed to get a "hit." With FamilySearch, you can enter a spelling that's close, but not exactly the one they have indexed, and you may still get a hit. I don't know how Ancestry.com's indexing system works. Frequently if I can't find somebody using one site, I can find them using another. They key is to persevere.

RE: Elizabeth Stevenson
No problem, Nancy. We were all beginners once. You know how to find census images on FamilySearch? I often use HeritageQuest (through my local library), but they don't have the 1850 census, and the census image I posted on the Nancy Stevenson memorial was (as you've discovered by now) an 1850 census image. When I put the census images on F.A.G., I generally crop a lot out, because I want what's left to be large enough to read. So, you should look at the full image. ~ Jay

RE: Elizabeth Stevenson Memorial
Hi Nancy. I just used the F.A.G. index to search for the name Elizabeth Stevenson so I could see the census you're talking about, but there are 450 memorials for people named Elizabeth Stevenson, and I don't know how to find the one you are talking about. I'd need one or more clues -- a memorial number, a place, her dates, or something. As for the date of the census, I usually would put that into the caption for the census image. You know how to open that up, right? I'm delighted if a census image is helpful to you. That's what F.A.G. is all about -- helping one another. ~ Jay

RE: Margaret Young
It was off of the middle road, to the left. Not too hard to find :). Glad I did!

RE: Wanda Petrie Cassidy
Hi again, the death cert says Fairview Cemetery, Boston Heights. The other Fairview Cemetery is a bit further away in another area. I believe we have the right cemetery and she probably does not have a headstone. Thanks again for all your help!

RE: Wanda Petrie Cassidy
The worn stones probably are not hers because she died in 1952.... a fairly recent death. I will let you know if I find anything further.

Thanks again!!
