Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please be nice - as the person who puts in any number of edits, fixes and interments, I do so out of the love in my heart. . . mostly for family and friends. . .but I also do it as voluntary part of my JOB.

If what you are asking for is part of my family, a project I am currently working on or part of a close friends family, I will not transfer it to you.

I do not include ALL information for the interment if there is a Death certificate, a headstone or an obit included with the interment. I will happily take the time to add parents and spouses as requested.

If the people you are searching for are from Muskingum and surrounding counties in Ohio, you may find copies of obits here:

Muskingum Co Chapter OGS
Post Office Box 2427
Zanesville, OH 43702-2427

Shumate, Parkinson, McGlaughlin, VanMeter are the base names for Willow's family
Middaugh, Head, Fain, and Duncan are the base names of Bear's family.

Harrison Shumate
The father and mother of Harrison Shumate were John Shumate and Sarah Sally Milbourn Shumate. See Green Shumate info.

Rachel Gibson married a John Shumate but they remained in Virginia and appear in the 1850 census. I have a copy of their marriage document and that of John Shumate and Sarah Sally Milbourn and they are not the same.

George Phillip Snyder
Do you by any chance have a 1850 census for Phillip Snyder (81987712)? I have tried looking for him in Tuscarawas County and also for his daughter, Celecta; but no luck locating either one of them.

Hi, Tricia -
I think you just didn't realize "who" I am - we've talked before. If I remember correctly, you descend from Della Alzina McDonald Milhoan - and I descend from her sister, Mary Elizabeth McDonald Frazier.

You're welcome! This stone is in the section across the lane from the mausoleum. I think it was close to the middle. I found two requests in that section so I am not sure which one is which right now. The stone is in row four.

RE: Jenkins/ Hankinson Connection
Thank you so much for the forward. I appreciate that you did that for me. I saw your Hankinson Virtual Cemetery link on your bio page and just got carried away, I guess. Yes, we are cousins by marriage, it seems. My husband's father was the son of Walter Bullard who married Margaret L. McClelland, Corintha Jenkins McClelland's daughter. So you two share the Hankinson blood. It is very nice to meet you, too! This sort of thing always tickles me. Thanks again for the forward and for all the good information such as death certs you've posted to the various family memorials.

This makes us cousins.

As I said she is my 4th Great Grandmother.

With the exception of a few links you can go forward and end up with my Great Grand Father William Mathias Hill who married Clara Mae Woodruff.

Actually I do not need this to be transferred, since I have linked her to her husband and I can forward any parents info if I find it.

So are you Tricia Shumate? We have spoken before on this line?

Arthur Garfield Hankinson (son of Hugh Shotwell Hankinson) is connected to our family through the Clappers on my mothers side

New Concord Cemetery

Would you happen to have transcriptions of the New Concord cemetery or other cemeteries in Muskingum County? I am looking for the burial location for Paul Winchel Crawford and his wife Dorothea. Thanks!
