I am a retired lawyer, age 80 in Oct 2012, on Chicago's North Side. Interested in the genealogy of Meigs County, Ohio and Braxton County, West Virginia. I will readily transfer graves that are not my immediate family, and am eager to transfer graves to younger Findagrave users.|

Please feel free to send the info for adding to the memorial page I think the 4 recent request are a little to far off the Find A Grave guidelines.

|DGG||RE: John Thamm Message|
I was at the library this week and checked on John Thamm. Although his obit does not mention burial at Hailey Cemetery, I found a couple of notices regarding the postponed burial. Since this was posted in Hailey, and John lived in Hailey and his parents are buried in Hailey, I think it is very likely he is at Hailey. If burial were in another town it would have been mentioned.
Aug 1, 1917 Wood River Journal
"Mrs. D. S. Morgan, mother of Mrs. John Thamm, arrived on the train today from her home in Shoshone to attend the last sad rites of her son-in-law John Thamm. Mrs. Cora Chapman, sister of Mrs. Thamm was expected but she did not arrive."
"Postponed - The funeral of the late John Thamm was postponed until 5 o'clock this afternoon to await the arrival of Mrs. Anthony who is coming from Shoshone in an automobile."

I have deleted the duplicate Hanst memorials, per your request. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
|Connie Schumaker||J.P. & Elizabeth Wilcoxen|
Ron, I must be blind. Disregard my previous message about J.P and Elizabeth's stone in Greenwood Cemetery. I found it on Find A Grave.
|Connie Schumaker||Dr J. L. Wilcoxen & Wife, Mary|
Ron, wjhen you took photos in Greenwood Cem, Sutton Twp., Meigs Co. of Dr. J. L. & Mary Wilcoxen gravestones did you by any change photograph the grave next to theirs for J.P and Elizabeth Wilcoxen?
|DGG||Marie Thamm Anthony|
I added a photo for Ida Thamm Bannister, no stone. (look at her memorial photo for the plots)
Buried in the same row is Emma Thamm Kelley. My best guess is Marie is in either Plot 17 or 19.

It's been a while. I have been adding photos for Hailey Cemetery and came across Marie's memorial. I had come across her obit a few years ago and checked with the cemetery office. She is not listed in their books, but that does not mean she is not there. Her sister, Ida Bannister's grave does not have a headstone, so she may be somewhere around the same area.
I added Marie's obit to her memorial that indicates she was buried in Hailey.
Did you ever get a photo of the Thamm carriage?

All updates have been made. Thanks for the invitation but I live on the East Coast. I have a way to go to get to 79 though, and thanks for the information.

|Terry Glendening||RE: Williams Family Cemetery, Ohio|
No, this is not the same Cemetery. There are about 12 to 15 graves in the Williams Family Cemetery. All are listed in the Muskingum County Genealogical Society's book on tombstone inscriptions.
This cemetery is on private property on the north side of Pinkerton Lane in Springfield Township. The land is owned by the widow of Robert A. 'Flick' Russell, Mrs. Ruth L. (Gale) Russell, whose mother was Helen G. WILLIAMS, wife of Rev. Floyd Gale.
Including the Williams Cemetery that you refer to, that makes 4 Williams Cemeteries in Muskingum County. Jersey Ridge Road, Creamery Road, Pinkerton Lane or Road and Salem Township.
Thanks for letting me know about it! I'll check to make sure I have accurate directions to the one in Springfield Township to avoid any future confusion.
