Bio and Links
Bio Photo We are two sisters who are working on the Monroeville Memorial Cemetery (also known as IOOF Cemetery). The cemetery was incorporated on September 20, 1887; on November 30, 1965 the IOOF Cemetery ceased and the cemetery became the Monroeville Memorial Cemetery, Incorporated. The cemetery located in section 18 of Monroe Township, on route 101 at the Flatrock Road.

We have access to the original records for the cemetery with permission from the cemetery board. We are trying to get the utmost accurate information for all genealogists. If we have any of your families memorials please feel free to ask for a transfer.

12/26/2010 Update- All sections photographed. I will be going through the book to enter graves without photos.

Thanks to Lois Ternet for permission in using her photos from the LOIS TERNET COLLECTION.

*NOTE*- If a stone is two or more sided with names on them, I will post all pics of the stone on the memorial site. This helps with genealogy.

RE: Duplicates-Heaths
Hi and thanks for your message. Yes I am recent on this site and trying to get information out and rediscover old family connections. The problem I am running into is while the Heaths are my direct ancestors some of the sites set up by others are not responding to my specific information or corrections, leaving me unsure if some of the people who set up these initial sites are themselves deceased or other. Being older myself and in failing health the only way left for me to tie my info to a specific grave is to set up a duplicate site. The other problem I am having is that Pancake Cemetery in Van Wert county in Ohio no longer exists, making it ridiculously hard to track down not only direct ancestors but brothers and sisters offspring as well. My sister has worked with but sometimes the info there is incorrect plus it does not link names with physical resting places. Was it Marriman there who I thought might be related? Anyway thank you i greatly appreciate any help offered, with respect...

Much Thanks
I sincerely appreciate your work on the Monroeville Cemetery. I was looking for information on the Schlemmer school on the internet & one of the searches brought up the link to Find-A-Grave for one of our Schlemmers. It had been a long time since I did any searching here! I noticed that you have 6 children for Phillip & Caroline Schlemmer, but only have 4 listed. I can fill you in on the other 2. One of them was my grandfather, George William Schlemmer (B. 21-May-1879 in Allen Co., IN; D. 7-Jan-1958 in Mongo, IN, buried in Greenwood Cemetery, LaGrange, LaGrange Co., IN; M. 28-Apr-1904 to Iva Pearl Shaffer in Monroeville, IN). The other is Mary Esther Schlemmer (B. 18-Sep-1888 in Allen Co., IN; M. James Franklin Shaffer 27-May-1908 in Adams Co., IN) Sorry, I do not have her death date in my records -- and yes, she did marry George's brother-in-law!
I'll be searching out more of the family after our family leaves, feels kind of good to do some research again. :)

Herman Johnson's headstone
Thank you for the photo of Herman M. Johnson's resting place! #65068977. In the photo, you indicate that there is no headstone for him, or his mother, Mary Johnson. But there is one for his father, John Allen Johnson. Additionally, Mary Creason, also with no headstone, is listed next to Herman in the photo, with the date of 1916-1921. However, I am not sure exactly who she is. Do you have any info on her? I think she may be the daughter of Herman Johnson's sister, Maude Creason. When I click on Mary Creason's memorial (77081799) it says her parents are Maude & Earl Johnson Creason, which makes sense. But I am just confused on why their daughter would be buried next to Maude's brother and parents. I hope this isn't too confusing and makes sense to you. I greatly appreciate your time, and all you do!
If you find out anything more let me know.

Thank you very much for the headstone photo as well as links to Mr. Beery's parents. Sorry it took so long to implement your suggestions but I've been out of the country for a couple of months - just returned yesterday.
