Bio and Links
My name is Tina. Over the last few years I have come to love researching my ancestry and helping others. I have always been a history buff. My husband Douglass and I both do this together. I could never have imagined how much I loved to do this. I was always scared of cemeteries...now I just find them quiet and comforting and peaceful...filled with people I would have loved to meet!

I would greatly appreciate it if, there is anyone out there, in the areas of Kansas City, MO., Los Angeles, CA, Buffalo, NY and Johnstown, PA that might be willing to look up and see if there are obits in these areas? For some of my descendants. Some things are just not easy to find and cannot be found online. I, would also be willing to do the same. For the Akron, Summit County area. Maybe we can help each other?

My families I am trying to research are In Ohio that settled here in the early 1800s to mid 1800s Harpster, Burwell, Sigler, Longabach or Longabough,Seibert all in Wayne/Ashland Co.& PA . Bossart, Shoup, Palmer, Bell and Peddicord of Blairsville and surrounding areas,PA. Meese, Wagner,McVaddin/McFadden, Penrod, Sommerset,PA area. Zimmerman, Roedal,and Wirth Germany to Johnstown,PA. Baker, Chamberlain and Ruple, Beers, (Stow,OH & East Cleveland, OH).

RE: Benjamin Chamberlain Standing Rock Cemetery
Hi Tina. Glad you found him! Standing Rock is very close to Stow, just in the next city over, and so there is a lot of overlap between families in the Stow Cemetery and Standing Rock. There are other Chamberlains in Standing Rock, but I only manage memorials for a couple and I'm not sure how they all connect. I'd be happy to transfer Benjamin to you, so you can link up parents and other family members and provide some better bio information. Let me know if any others I manage also connect to your work. I'll do that transfer now! *Janice

RE: Mt Peace

Alma D (Bee) Bailey 1880-1930

Charles Wesley Bee 1848-1924
Catherne Rebecca (Lowther) Bee 1851-1928

Ivah Helen (Watterson) Bee 1891-1944

Thank you again !

Tina, thanks so much for trying to find the gravestone for Baby Becker. I appreciate your efforts even though it turned out to be unmarked. It helps to even know that. ~ Pat

Shoup Photos
Hello I am up dating a family history, Berkebile Families in America, 6th edition of which Elma Woods and William R Shoup are members. Could I have your permission to use the photos you posted to their memorials in the new edition? You would of course have credit for the photos.
Do you have the names of the people in the photo which has William and the 3 girls?

Also I have access to Newspaper Archives perhaps I can help you with a bit of your research in Pennsylvania you will need to send me a list of names and dates at svonlunen@hotmail.com put Berkebile in the subject header

RE: Zimmerman Clan
I see that you do a wonderful job at volunteering for others on this site. Many people that I fulfill requests for have hundreds of requests but hardly any (if any) requests that they have fulfilled for others.

Send me a list of the people you are looking for (full name and birth/death dates) and I'll see if I can find them on Ancestry. I don't know of any other site that they're available on which I think is wrong. If our Governor made them public record, Ancestry should not have the monopoly on having access to them, especially with the annual fee they charge. Our death records are from 1906-1963.

Thank you for all you do to help others and I'll see what I can do for the death certificates.

Brian

RE: Doyle
You're very welcome! I did see Craymer's buried next to the Doyle's. Grandview is only 2 miles away, so I'll get those this morning.
