Requests to other editors:

All Messages and requests to me should be civil and polite. No sarcasm please!

Please use the EDIT function on a memorial for all messages, requests, TRANSFERS, etc. concerning that memorial.

Before starting a new cemetery, be sure to check to make sure the cemetery does not already exist.

Biographical information and obituaries should not be included in a virtual flower.

If you know the places of birth and death, why don't you fill them in at the top of the memorial. It's not that hard. Go the extra mile!

Think outside the box.

Please let me know about any corrections or links. If you find any errors or incomplete birth and death dates in my postings, contact me through the EDIT-button at the right top of the memorial. I'd be happy to make the corrections, links and additions.

Please do not ask me to add unsubstantiated / unsourced claims that the person is related in some way to a famous person.

If you ask me to add info from the photo of a grave marker, especially an old one, please give me the exact dates, etc., that you want added, so that I am spared having to try to decipher the marker.

Transfer requests should be individual and specific and must be made by using the EDIT function on the memorial in question. If you are requesting a transfer based on relationship, please state that relationship. I am flexible on your connection to the person and will make transfers outside the guidelines at my discretion. I have been disappointed when I did make a transfer and the transferee did nothing to improve the memorial or even worse deletes what I have added.

In the case of competing requests for a transfer or I have have a connection to the person, I will use the guidelines.

Historian and genealogist.

I have been doing genealogy on both sides of the Atlantic for over 27 years. My work on Find A Grave is NOT a hobby, but a service to others.

I majored in history at Duke, did graduate work in history at the Univ. of South Carolina, graduated from the Univ. of Florida Law School and practiced law for 30 years, much of it in the land title industry. I have an EFM certificate from the School of Theology, University of the South.

Through my mother, I am a ninth generation member of the Weybright (sometimes spelled Waybright) Family in America, a member of the First Families of Ohio and a direct descendant of Capt. Martin Weybright III, of the Lancaster County (PA.) Militia. who is on the DAR patriots list and paradoxically was a member of the pacifist German Baptist Brethren (Church of the Brethren). His father, Martin II and grandparents, Martin I and Margaretha, had arrived in Philadelphia in 1730 from Germany aboard the ship Loyal Judith and settled in Lancaster.

My grandfather, W E Durr, M.D. practiced in Glencoe, Ohio, from after World War I until his death in 1947. In the course of his practice, he delivered many babies, including my mother and one of my brothers. I have over 1,300 of his Physician's Birth Records, but these are probably many more records that I do not have. I put these birth records into 4 spiral bound books and gave the original books to the Ohio Genealogical Society's Library in Mansfield, Ohio, gave one copy to the Genealogical Section of the Hutton Library in Barnesville, Ohio, and kept one copy for myself.

Through my great grandfather, Cornelius "Neal" Rice (1844-1933), I am a member of Civil War Families of Ohio. During Sherman's March to the Sea, he was captured at Irwin's Crossroads, Georgia, taken to the county jail in Sandersville and then to the county jail in Milledgeville, then the state capital of Georgia. He escaped from the jail and walked home to Greenville, Ohio.

Through my father, I am a first generation American and a dual citizen of the USA and the Republic of Ireland.

Names in my family tree are: Calvert, Varty, Moore, Durr. Rice, Burgan, Weybright or Waybright, Koontz, Fetter, Mehring and lots more.

Places in my tree are Stuart and Bradenton, Florida; Belmont, Darke, Miami, Montgomery, Holmes & Wayne counties, Ohio; Carroll County, Maryland; Lancaster, Somerset & Adams counties, Pennsylvania; Eastern Massachusetts; Counties Armagh, Antrim, Down, Dublin & Monaghan, Ireland; the West Riding of Yorkshire, England; Southern Germany, and more.

Denominations in my tree include Episcopal, Christian Science, Presbyterian, Lutheran, Methodist, Moravian, German Baptist Brethren (Church of the Brethren}, Roman Catholic, etc.

Places I've lived, worked or spent time in are Manatee, Alachua, Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie & Indian River counties, Florida; Suffolk, Norfolk, Middlesex, Worcester & Plymouth counties, Massachusetts; Belmont, Darke, Montgomery & Erie counties, Ohio; Rutland County, Vermont; Chautauqua County, New York; Durham County, North Carolina; Richland & Sumter counties, South Carolina; Counties Armagh, Antrim, Down, Dublin & Monaghan, Ireland; London, England; etc.

Eva is now linked back with her husband. Thanks for calling my attention to her being dropped as spouse. I do love this new edit system as it really saves all of us a lot of time but I guess sometimes things happen.

I was wondering how you knew where this man had been born. Does he have a marker at the cemetery? Media says he was buried with 4 others at the potter's field...wondering if they are buried together?

His name did not come up when I requested it in the Holt Cemetery, so I began a memorial page for him, only to discover yours.

I thought it sad that these 4 men had never been claimed (nor the others ID'ed) and thought they should at least have a marker of some kind.

Would you mind sharing what you know?

Alexander Cemetery, Neffs, Ohio
Hello Martin,

My husband has relatives buried in Alexander Cemetery, Neffs, Belmont County, Ohio. We just visited the cemetery in hopes of finding their markers on June 28, 2014. We knew it was in poor condition and difficult to find if you don't know the area. Because my husband lived in the area when he was younger and went back to visit family over the years, and with the help of our GPS, we were able to find it. We were a little shocked over the appearance and because of the deterioration, we did not find who we were looking for. It appears that some one is making efforts to clean and clear the area up.

My question is, are you aware of any records from the Cemetery just so we can verify the information that we believe to be true or know how we can get access to them or who we need to contact?

Any suggestions on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much for your time,
Kimberly Bakosh
