I am self-confessed genealogy geek who's been working on my family tree for about 20 years. Cemeteries are so important to genealogy research so I think Findagrave is such a valuable genealogical and historical tool.
I live in Sherman Oaks, CA, used to be in the music business and love hanging out with my family and knitting when I'm not doing research.
VanHise-Winstead Hi, I saw that you left a message for your ancestor who was a VanHise-Winstead. My 4x great-grandparents were Martha VanHise (1793-1843) and John Winstead (1789-1856) who also lived in Pickaway County near Tarlton. (I am descended through their daughter Christina Winstead-Fulkerson. I'm wondering if my VanHise-Winsteads might be related to yours? Any help is appreciated!
I am researching the Schuchardt family and saw your name with Dale and Florence (Schuchardt) Halter. Florence's grandfather, Charles Schuchardt Jr was my great-grandmother's brother (Emma Schuchardt Brown). I am in search of living relatives to be able to collaborate and exchange genealogy info. If you are related to this family please let me know! Bonnie M. email@example.com
I see that John Ruckenhouser is your grandfather. I am wondering if you know where Ethel is buried. She was married to my dad's uncle. She is not with Ruth as some of the family thought. Feel free to contact me.
Lincoln Lawbaugh Received your message regarding the identity of the woman in the photo posted to Lincoln Lawbaugh's memorial. I didn't post this photo and have no information about it. Do you want me to add a Note that the woman is not Pearl? If you have a photo of Pearl with or without Lincoln, you can post it to their memorials. Best regards.
I am so glad you found your 4th G-Grandmother. The stone is in such good shape that I suspect it had been buried for a good period of time. It does not look like it has been restored.
There are a few memorials I established which I will never forget; Eleanor is one of them. She was so concerned about being remembered.
I think newspaperarchive.com might offer a trial period. You could get a copy of the full article about her. (This site provides many more tools to obtain good article copies than ancestry.com. Alternatively, please send me an email address and I'll send you a copy.)
It would be great if you could provide any information about Jacob you find to add to her memorial.
