|Bio and Links|
I live in Columbiana County in Northeastern Ohio. Since I started my family history research, I have been amazed at the unknown family members I have found so close to my home. I want to honor them by adding them to this site. Thank you to all who place flowers on their memorials.|
NOTE: I am working closely with my cousin, Joseph Chaplow, and some of my entries are his family. Preference on transfers will go to him.
Researching: Felger, Naughton, Stanyard, Miller, Bailey, Lind, Sherry, Forney, Stallsmith, Hauptmann, Huch, VanFossan/VanFossen, Hull, Stump, Thoman, Summer(s), Baker, Hartje, & Rukenbrod (to name a few).
PLEASE DO NOT USE MY PERSONAL PHOTOS. Any other use or republishing of them is not permitted. It is a violation of FindaGrave guidelines. If you have an interest in someone, please email me. However, you may copy any headstone picture I've added for your own family tree use. The exception would be using my photos when creating a duplicated FindaGrave memorial. This is not allowed and is against the guidelines. A notation that I was the photographer would be appreciated, if only to assist others who may want to contact me about family. I've received a lot of help in obtaining family headstone pictures from other researchers and want to pay it forward. Thank you.
Please check the cemetery before you make an entry to avoid duplications. I welcome any corrections to information I have entered. Please use the suggest a correction tab on the individual memorial. It's easier for me that way.
Regarding transfers, please remember...just because you are related to someone doesn't mean someone else isn't. Please see F-A-G guidelines regarding transfers. *"The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."
I ask you to remember that the members of this site are volunteers, both for entries and photo requests. They spend time and money to do this out of a love of the past, to memorialize those who have gone before, and in remembrance of beloved family members. It requires cooperation and teamwork. If you don't like to do these things, I respectfully ask that you choose another hobby.
***Please remember this precious child and his family: Camden Fairchild.***
***Please remember this young man, a Fallen Graver, who loved what he did and helped many people: Coady Hatlen. He is missed.***
Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4
"Do not stand on my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the mornings hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave & cry;
I am not there, I did not die."
~*~ONE FINAL GIFT~*~
Scatter me not to the restless winds
Nor toss my ashes to the sea.
Remember now those years gone by
When loving gifts I gave to thee.
Remember now the happy times
The family ties are shared.
Don't leave my resting place unmarked
As though you never cared.
Deny me not one final gift
For all who came to see.
A simple lasting proof that says
I loved and you loved me.

That Peara Seidel in the 1900 census is actually Barbara (not sure where the spelling came from) and Benjamin is definitely George and Barbara Seidel's son. I have talked to Benjamin's son personally.

My father is suffering from Alzheimer's disease and can't answer any questions about his family. He went into the military after high school and never went back to Ohio. My father never spoke about his childhood or his people and now he can't. I grew up all over the world without any sense of family or belonging and it felt as if there was a big void. Now I know that I have a connection with people of the past. That they lived their lives and have names and eternal resting places. With my father loosing his memory I guess what I am looking for is a way to hang on to a past that I have only now become aware of. I share all my discoveries with my dad even though, he does not remember what I say a few minutes later. Thanks for the photos and the note.
Thanks Debra for the assist.
So happy to find you in the Robert Harvey information! I am a Great-Grandaughter of Robert, my Grandmother is Margaret Dale Harvey-Beck, married to Clyde Beck, both of Columbiana County. It is so nice to meet you!
Yes, you can use the photos for your Ancestry tree. Thank you for the parent links.

Hi, I was so thrilled to find this grave. Bruce W. Miskelly was my dad's grandfather. I am trying to find out information about my dad's family, but he has dementia and does not remember anything about his family. He never spoke of them when I was growing up. This is the first time I have seen anything solid about who his people were. Thanks so much for getting and putting this photo and his wifes on Find a Grave.
