Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born May 1, 1959, in Mt Clemons, Michigan.

My Parents;
Donald Oberlin
Myrtle Oliver Oberlin

On February 14 1998 I married Michael Smarr, my childhood sweetheart. He has been my soulmate and has been with me through the Great and the Hard times, ever by my side.

In Oct 2006 I was diagnosed with terminal Breast Cancer and told I had two years to live.

In 2007 my son got married, and they have given us two of the most precious granddaughters.

In 2010 my sister Carol Oberlin Fortin and I found we both enjoyed geneology, so we started putting our family up on Find A Grave.

Now my Granddaughters will have a permenant record of their family.

The Lord has truely Bessed Me. It is now June 2012, It has been a struggle but worth every minute.

As we travel we find and enter cemeteries, so if I have your family member, no matter how far up the tree, please ask for the memorial, and if its not our family I would be honored to transfer it to you.

May God Bless you, Janice

My memorial:
Janice Oberlin Smarr

Ezekiel Wheeler
Would you like to have Ezekiel Wheeler's memorial transferred to you? He is not related to me in any way. My husband photographed the stones while on a trip.

RE: The Kilgore Family in Unity Cemetery, OH
Hi, again, Janice! Thank you so much for the offer to transfer the Kilgores to me. You're right, too bad we aren't related. It is a pleasure to be related to such kind people as I have found throughout my family history research. I would love to manage these memorials, although there are so many here, I would hate to cause you an inconvenience to transfer all of them to me at this time. If you have any spare time in the future, I would really appreciate it. Thank you so much for documenting this cemetery. It truly means a lot to other researchers!

RE: The Kilgore Family in Unity Cemetery, OH
Well, thank you for your hard work and for creating so many memorials. I am related to some of the Kilgores in this cemetery (probably all of them, though I haven't done extensive research on this line of the family). William McFarland Kilgore and Tacie Carter Kilgore are my 3rd great grandparents, and I was wondering if you were a cousin.

The Kilgore Family in Unity Cemetery, OH
Hi, Janice! I noticed that you have created many memorials for the Kilgore family in Unity Cemetery in Belmont, Ohio, and have added a good bit of information into their bios. I was wondering if you are somehow related to these particular Kilgores?

RE: Atwater Cemetery
Janice I found them in the sexton records, no stones I hadn't seen any other Smarr names and thought it was odd. But then I saw some in German Church, so it connected why some might be in the Atwater cemetery too. I think I put two more from sexton records on Atwater, check it out I entered 300 from sexton records today WOW this cemetery is too big for out in the country LOL. So it is all figured out about your Smarr's. I have been trying to clean up memorial that are posted to Atwater and maybe aren't in Atwater.....It has been a whole month project and I never dreamed there were almost 3500 burials there, I thought maybe 1000. Well was I shocked, but I promised to do one cemetery this summer near me so I am still plugging away at it. I appreciate all everyone has done for me on Find A Grave and that old section in Atwater staring about 1800 had never been fully done or photographed. It is such a shame so many old stones are destroyed or need repaired or cleaned. Maybe next summer for that project. :)

Smarr Atwater Cemetery
Hi I am working on memorials for Atwater Cemetery Ohio. I have the cemeteries database, and I don't find Smarr buried there. You have two memorials up, COULD THEY BE BURIED ELSEWHERE? We are trying to get the Find A Grave records correct on line, please let me know if it is possible they are not buried here or we need to find them. Thank you for your help Sandy
