The main lines I am reseaching are: Caito, McCann, Rains/Raines, Trisler & Zike.
If I have added someone from your family line, I would be willing to update it (if it is also one of mine) or if not, I will transfer the memorial over to you where they belong. Just let me know. All postings by me, are made to honor that person, and are done so with dignity and respect. If there are misprints, or incomplete information, please let me know & I will update the memorial.

Your tombstone stands neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out on polished, marbled stone. It reaches out to all who care. It is too late to mourn. You did not know that I exist. You died and I was born. Yet each of us are cells of you in flesh, in blood, in bone. Our heart contracts and beats a pulse entirely not our own. Dear Ancestor, the place you filled so many years ago. Spreads out among the ones you left who would have loved you so. I wonder as you lived and loved, I wonder if you knew That someday I would find this spot and come to visit you.
I don't remember a headstone for him either and as soon as I am home from vacation I will go to the cemetery and get the information on the infant. I know there was no name listed just infant but I can get you the date of birth and date of death.
I'm working on my family tree at familysearch.com and one of the tombstone photos you posted is one of my relatives! I'm thankful to you for getting it on the web and am wondering if i may have your permission to add the photo to my relatives profile on family search? It's for Joseph Edward Hyde March 8 1842 in the Logan City Cemetery.
I agree many times you can find more than you expected with the nearby grave sites too. The listing in the library not only has the last names but in many cases will show a relationship with a person with a different last name but who are now married or will show if the person was a daughter of or son of a couple who one of them had Zike in their lineage. So far these are all that I have found so far but like you say there may be many more not found as yet.
I was at the Public Library in Charleston and while looking up the locations of various grave sites for photos I saw your request for any and all Zike that might be buried in Janesville. From what I can see there are photos of all of their headstones on Find a Grave for all of the Zikes buried at Janesville.
RE: William Zike photo Hi Sandra! I am so sorry it took so long for me to reply to your request to remove the photo I had posted of William Zike. I went inactive for the past few years and had not even logged in, due to taking care of my mother for several years prior to her passing. I logged into find a grave today and removed the photo per your request. God Bless!
