I am now retired and do a lot of geocaching, which takes me to a lot of cemetaries. I love seeing the old and unusual gravestones. I get a lot of exercise from walking the cemetaries and looking for requested monuments. it gives me great pleasure to find the monuments to fullfil the requests. If I can be of any assistance in this area please feel free to contact me. I am in Perry County, Ohio and am close to Licking, Muskingham, Fairfield, Hocking, Athens counties. |
Any memorials I have set up will be transferred to family members upon request.
***Please note: At times I may take 500, 600, or even 700 pictures a day when trying to document a cemetery. Some of the photos may not turn out well but at least there is a picture to document the marker and dates. If you would like me to get a better picture for you let me know. I will not be offended by your asking. Daylight, shadows, wet markers etc. can affect the quality.

Hi. First I want to thank you for all the work you have done, much of it was in my family. I'm grateful. Secondly, I would like to manage my brother's Dennis Eugene Lanning and my Father's, Freddie Lee Lanning. Could you switch them to me please?

Hi my question about the photo of grave for Lida C Wright which you took last year, was there a stone for her husband James Wright? Having hard time finding anything on him. Thanks!
|Loneta Boyer||RE: Margaret Roby|
Consort does mean spouse, but I double checked and it also can mean life companion. the one occasion where I saw this used on a stone was when I was in St. Genevieve, about 20 years ago. I can't remember the family name, but it was the important one in that old French community. The family was in one part of the cemetery, with very impressive stones, the consort was off on one side among the lesser stones, but her stone was very nice. (I am not an expert in history, but I felt that she was loved, but for some reason marriage was not allowed. Religion, social status, race????) If Margaret Roby is my ancestor, she was probably American Indian. I love the history of these people, and I am not positive that this is my 4th great grandmother, but it seems to fit--and I would love to know her story. If she is the person I believe her to be, she died during or soon after childbirth. Whoever she was, thank you so much for making her memorial, she deserves to be remembered.--Loneta Boyer

I was so happy to find the memorial and the information that you wrote on this. I also was very happy to find her date of death. I had her date of birth as about 1809, but from the information that you had posted, I believe she must have been born about 1810. Searching for her has been a slow and lonely job as I have found no one else who is interested in her. I have known for years that my Great grandmother could have had headrights but did not chose to do so. My mother told me the tribe, but I cannot remember for certain, I can only remember that she was not Cherokee and I wanted her to be Cherokee as I had a friend who was part Cherokee. ( I was only a child back then.) I have traced my great grandmother back to Margaret. I am very interested in the "consort" --I have seen that on a tombstone in St Genevieve, Missouri. I understand this to mean that there was not a formal marriage, but that the woman/women were loved. Considering the time s, a marriage may not have been possible. Thank you so much for posting this information. Do you know any more about her or anything that might help in my search? (I have also noticed that there are duplicate memorials, but this one is the most complete. Thank you so much for your work--you have helped me very much. Loneta Boyer
