Hiram G. Imes I am updating Find A Grave Cw memorials from a set of index cards of CW burials in Lawrence County Ohio. I have his death as of Aug 8, 1920. Do you know if there could have been to Hiram's who served in the 27th OH Inf?
RE: Greenlawn cem Hi. There are two Gates listed in the Greenlawn Register: Jacob, 1830-1916; Jane, 1837-1916. Perhaps Ensel is in Mount Rose, which is adjacent to Greenlawn and also is an older cemetery.
If there is a headstone, we photographed it. That being said, we have 7,000 more photos to upload from the cemetery. They come off the camera as image_001 etc. and aren't always I order (because we use 2 cameras and alternate rows). But my wife and I hope to keep doing uploads through the Winter, so we should get it if it exists. We have now photographed every stone in the cemetery.
RE: Nellie M or Lucy C Hard A number of years ago, I was in Wichita, KS in an antique store and I found this beautiful 1880s album. It was in amazing condition, and I had been looking for one I could afford for some time. As a bonus it had some great mid to late 19th century photographs inside, so I bought it. When I finally got home - to Nebraska - I found that 2 of the images had names written on the back Nelly Mae Hard and Lucy Clyde Hard, with their ages - 6 years and 4 years. At the time, I tried to research the names but found out nothing. I put the album away. I re-found the album a couple nights ago, and since I had to do a program on dating photographs by looking at the clothing worn by the people in the image, I thought it would be good to take along. After the program, I was looking and noticed the names again, so decided to give it another shot finding a family member. I went to Ancestry and found in the 1880 Portsmouth, Scioto Co., OH Census - Frank L. Hard, with wife Lucy, and daughters Nellie May and "Clyde." The information seemed to fit with the information on the back of the photographs. I later found the 1900 census with Frank and family, so I went to Findagrave and found the memorial for Nelly that you manage. When I looked at your bio, it stated that the Hard name was part of your mother's line, so I decided to contact you about the pictures. I did not find the 3rd name until last night and have no idea how it might be connected. I know that if someone ever found pictures that may be from my family, I would want to know about it. I would like to email you copies of all the images, with the idea that I would return into your care what may be pictures of other members of your family.
Nellie M or Lucy C Hard Curious as to how much you know about the Hard family and any connections they may have had in Cincinnati, O, Portsmouth, O, a person by the name of J. T. Hayward in Wichita, KS, and Nevada, MO. Please look at Nellie M. Hard's memorial page. Kay Cynova
Thank you so much for helping me with these two cemeteries. Rosedale has never been plotted; Oakland Cemetery is plotted. I do have cemetery records and a 1970's enumeration of the 2 cemeteries. With he help of Find a Grave contributors like you, these resources, and Ancestry.com, I am almost done with a spreadsheet of all of the info I can find for Rosedale, along with photos.
On to Oakland Cemetery and Berry Cemetery before some of these stones get too old to read.
RE: James McCain Ah ha!! I am very familiar with Old Greencastle Cemetery. this is one of the oldest ones in Dayton. the main problem though is during the flood of 1913, many of the stones were dislodged and covered with mud etc. so locating an actual head stone may hard or impossible, how ever, I have contact with a person at Wright State University that can help me find his location. as soon as the weather is more agreeable I will embark upon a quest!
