Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became involved in genealogy when my oldest child needed one last Boy Scout Badge and Family History seemed easy. I called my aunt who was the keeper of my dad's family "flame" to get some information. My son got his badge and I got hooked, (now I'm the keeper of that "flame") That was about 40 years ago. I am a widow now with 4 children and 11 grandchildren and several great grandchildren. The photo was taken when I was 18, so don't let it throw you. I hope my children will someday be interested. I believe it is important to keep a record of where our ancestors are buried ( but please ask permission to use my photo's) and this is just the place. Thanks. (I have recently had a Stroke, so please forgive my slowness.) Robin

Robin, may I use your photos for my family tree? One of the Fifes married a Short, and the Shorts are in my line. Hope you are doing well. Thanks. Fran

Hi! I have been working with a local Find A Grave photographer, Bob posted photos on some of your Wyckoffs at Zion Cemetery and for some of mine as well. I had some of the same names you have on a list from another Wyckoff cousin and most of them turned out to be in Mt Zion Church cemetery in Hamden County. I am confirming the location for all of them he photographed because I know he visted at least two Zion cemeteries. Here is the list I have. Most have turned out to be in Mt Zion Church Cemetery, Hamden twp.:

Edited: 27 Mar 2003 10:02AM
Surnames: Wyckoff, Burger, Cooper, Brown, Cozad, Hutt, Crocker, Remy, Barney, Bethel, Nixon, Speakman
Samuel and Elizabeth are buried at Mt Zion Church cem. in Harrison twp. Vinton Co. Here's what I have:

The next two cemetaries Wyckoff and Martindill are both within a mile or two of Mt. Zion. Wyckoff cem. was on the old Wycoff farm, but has few if any Wyckoff's in it. The Early Remy/Ramey's are there however. Samuel's father Samuel Wyckoff was a Vet. of the Revolutionary War. There is a lot of info out there about the Wyckoff's. If you need more I can send it. Samuel's (Jr) sister Mary married Joshua Speakman who was my ggg grandfather.
I will try to get some photos of Mt. Zion next time I go down. I do have photos of Wyckoff, Martindill and Pike Run on the old Speakman farm where Samuel and Maria are buried.

Hi Robin,
Hope you are well. Our mother, Juanita Fife, 86, has dementia (3) years. She is at home with caregivers. I was thinking about you and wanted to say hello. Give me a call sometime.

Are you related to William Bolin? who married Susan Hood? I have a feeling that William could be a brother to my Eli Bolin born abt 1782 to 1785 in Virginia. He winds up in Ross and Fayette Counties OH. He names a son William Perry Bolin and I noticed that some of William who married Susan's descendants end up in the same cemetery in Columbus OH as my William Perry Bolin's son Herman/Harmon E Bolin. wondering if there is a connection

Robin, I'm not writing about them because I just sent some edits, etc yesterday and this morning.

I just wanted to tell you that I wholeheartedly agree with you about each generation recording their family's history; about their grandparent's parents, where lived and a little something about them. I've done that for mine, but I had to 'dig it out.' Doesn't have to be a fancy book...just write it down and save it.

Like you, I'm retired, have lived the greater part of my years, and I regret never having asked questions when I was young...I think youth
thinks time is forever...but it passes so quickly.
I never knew any of my great-grandparents--only that my paternal grt-grandparents died in mother, an inlaw, had preserved a her 'metal picture bread-box' a piece of paper with only their names and date of birth and death. But I found their graves, then saw photos; just wonderful help I had on here.

So, let's keep telling our children and grandchildren stories about their unknown family, and just "one of them" might carry that flame. winnie
