RE: turn over marker
This type of maintenance is dumb. They use a backhoe to dig graves. I'm sure The equipment they use for digging a grave would work. Please give me the phone number of the cemetery office. I will call them. Thanks

Walter E Oyster
Hi Audrey,

Great, you found entries for my father and grandmother.

I have found Walter's other sister. Elizabeth Oyster married Stanley C. Millard. Her record is at Find A Grave Memorial# 92856194.

One of Walter's brothers died as a boy. His name was Ralph, and I found an entry for him, also. It is at Find A Grave Memorial# 91284600. He shares a headstone with the parents. I will work with the man who has this record to help get my greatgrandparents set up. I suspect he did not decipher the printing well enough to feel confident that he would get the names and dates correct.

The oldest sibling's name was Arthur Oyster. He was born Dec 20, 1884 and died Feb., 1964. He married Mary Robinson. His obit states that he lived in Toledo for 38 years prior to death. It also lists Elizabeth Millard, Althea Yarnell, and Walter in Alliance. No luck on finding his burial in Woodlawn Cemetery tonight. But I'll try again another time. Or maybe you will find it first.

Audrey, this should go to you since you photographed the stones - I only posted memorial information.

Good Family Photos
Thank you Anne for photographing those GOOD family gravestones in Ohio. I was able to link Laura back to her family.
Her sister, actually did not pass away until 1999 at age 107 year. I will link her w Laura when I confirm that the sister's remains were returned to Wisconsin for burial w her husband. She was the longest living ancestor we have--so far!

turn over marker
I know her marker was turn down, the photo was taken about 20 months ago. Do you think it was fixed, and turn back to the orginal place by now?
Most of the cemeteries in my area, take care of issues like this right away.
Thank you

Walter E Oyster
Hi again Audrey,

I have located an entry for Grandpa's sister. Althea Oyster was her name and she married E. M. Yarnell. Her record is at Find A Grave Memorial# 91284602.

I have not yet located entries for her parents. I will be searching for other siblings.

Walter E Oyster
Hi Audrey,
Walter E. Oyster was my grandfather. I became a findagrave contributor this year and have started updating the memorials for my relatives. Since a distant cousin just contacted me, and I am reviewing the Oyster records, I would also like to get additional information put here.

First: his middle name is Edward.
He was born October 14, 1896.
He died April 29, 1964.
He married Edith Graven on Sept. 21, 1921. I tried to find her grave memorial, but so far no luck. They are buried together, I believe.

They had one son, Harold Eugene Oyster. He is buried in Ashland Cemetery, but I didn't find a record for it just now either.

I received a phone call and need to leave home in a few minutes. So I will send this information on to you. There will be more information to follow.

Russell Brogan
Thanks for your note about the burial of Russell. I have a copy of his obituary and he married Florence Kline after the death of Olive. The obit states he is buried in Fairmount. It is possible that he decided to be buried next to his second wife even though his name is on the stone with Olive. I have the same situation with my uncle. After my aunt died in 1952, he remarried and when he died in the 1996 he is buried with his second wife. His name is on the stone with my aunt, but no date other than the birth year.

Hope this may clear up any problems. The only way to know if there is information on the stone with Olive, is to look at it, of course only when the weather breaks.

Sending warm thoughts from Florida.
