If you would like us to add/edit info on a memorial, please include the sources for your information.|
Uncovering buried stones has always been a fun hobby for my grown daughters and me, but Find A Grave has made it more of an "obsession". We live in North Central Ohio (aka "rural America"), so we get to see some long-forgotten stones in out-of-the-way places.
You may use any of our uploaded photographs of headstones, without prior permission, for all non-commercial purposes. Non-grave photos may not be used without specific and written permission.
Additional information is often taken from the deceased's birth, marriage and death records. Birth date is always calculated, using the age on the tombstone, when possible.
We GLADLY transfer memorials, as long as it isn't one of our relatives or some special stone which we've "adopted". Just ask through the "edit" button. We're working our way through Morrow County, Ohio, but have absolutely no family there. We'd love for these memorials to be in the hands of someone who will care for them.
If you take a better-quality photo than one which we've posted or just want the space back on your memorial, just let us know. We'll be happy to delete our photos.
We include a literal transcription and photo of every stone which we read. If we include a birth date that's been calculated from the age on the tombstone, then we make a note of that.
We're having a blast! It's just the running, snarling dogs that we don't like . . .

Thank you Janis ! I loved it :)
|imagal49||RE: Wm Leech & Link you sent|
I'm so glad you did - I did find the entry on the diaries and my spouse is contacting the other family historians. Perhaps if we make a concerted effort and explain that they're family heirlooms, the folks who run the website or who have the item up for consignment will take pity and offer a more reasonable price.
Thanks ever so much for sending it on to us.

|Kathy Worley Peters||Thank You|
Thank you...I am grateful for this information and now have lots of leads to try to follow.
This is my grandfather's side of the family. On my grandmother's side of the family we have my g-g grandfather Jacob Zents buried in two cemeteries. I feel sure both Jacobs are related. It is just figuring out who is where. And to be honest it probably doesn't matter. I am just trying to honor each of them by remembering that they once felt joy as they lived their lives in their communities. They departed and left a little bit of their souls in their descendents. They are the roots that have helped make my family strong.

Greetings Janis and thank you. It is great to get help with family searches. The family information did specify the Chesterfield cemetery. I also know that family information many times is not factual. Much of it relies on people's faulty memories. So do you happen to know about when the last person was buried in the Chesterfield Cemetery? After the holidays I will check out the other cemeteries. I did mention on Isabella's site that there is a question as to where she is buried.
