RE: Could you check one more?
Well, the spelling is part of what has created havoc in trying to find the family. The surname showed up with all sorts of spelling variations on vital records. Most frequently, it was Sines. But, records that I know to be for the family also have Senns, Sims, Sins, and Signs. Who knows... I may even find another spelling at some point! Without a date of death or some document showing our John and Margaret were buried at Latty, I'm hesitant to claim those two. I think it's more likely the family is buried together in some cemetery that has not found its way to FindAGrave.

RE: Could you check one more?
John and Margaret Sins are ours! I do not see those memorials here. Could you please tell me the cemeteries and possibly the plot locations, and I can add them? Thank you! I will also check any burials in Defiance. I have also found relatives before by expanding the search, especially in areas where I knew the geography. For many of the early burials near the Kansas/Nebraska state line, you can find their burials not only in a different county, but in a different state!

RE: wife of Jacob Oberhauser
I am unable to find any other mention of her anywhere except Rutherford B. Hayes Obituaries does mention her in the obituary of her daughter, Catherine Buchman. She is noted in the notes as Catherine's mother. I am currently awaiting the ordered obituary hoping for further information Thanks so much for responding.

RE: Could you check one more?
Hi, those other four graves are related, but are not immediate family. Matilda's husband was buried in Kansas many years later. I believe that our four family members would have been buried close to each other, given the close proximity of their deaths. The names are: Belinda Woods Sines (1828-1882), Harriet Sines Frey (1862-1881), Matilda Sines Hawkins (1856-1882) and Lodenna Hawkins (1881-1882). The name Lodenna may not be on the headstone, as the only evidence we have of this child is the birth record. Belinda and Harriet were shown living by each other in Harrison, Paulding County, on the 1880 Census, and Matilda is shown living in Antwerp with her children. Belinda's husband Jonathan Sines is shown as a "prisoner" in Paulding, Paulding County, on the same Census. Was there a cemetery in the area that was created during the period of significant deaths from tuberculosis in the early 1880's?

wife of Jacob Oberhauser
Does anyone have picture or information re: Eva Rosina Ulm Oberhauser? She is Jacob Oberhauser's wife and I am unable to find any information about her beyond 1860 census. Is her grave next to Jacob's in Ottoville?

Could you check one more?
For the book you have for Paulding burials, could you please check for one more name? I realized I had not given you the married surname for Matilda. She would have been buried with the name Matilda Hawkins. I suspect the family is buried somewhere together, as they all died in fairly fast succession during a tuberculosis outbreak from winter 1881 to early summer 1882.

Your memorial for her predates mine by a number of years. This is my great grandmother, my grandmother being Luella Jewell Booher-Collier. Would you consider transferring management of your memorial to me so that I can link her to her parents, husband and children.

Snellenberger Cemetery Records
Hello, I noticed that you posted a photo from Snellenberger Cemetery for Matilda King Fry (#39012843). I am hoping you can tell me where I can find cemetery records for this cemetery. I'm looking for the graves of Matilda's sister-in-law, Harriet Sines Fry, as well as Harriet's mother, sister, and infant niece. There may be others from our family who also died about the same time... when tuberculosis was spreading quickly through the community (1881-1882). The healthy members of the family moved further west after this event, and unfortunately, the burial location was not recorded in the family Bible. Thanks for any help! ~Evey
