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 . . .

|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.
|Kathy Worley Peters||Chesterfield Cemetery Isabella Virtue|
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.
|Kathy Worley Peters||Cynthia Virtue|
I did add the verification. One of the great aunts (Robert's Virtue aunts) should be buried there also. I will find that notation before I add her to the cemetery.
|Kathy Worley Peters||RE: Cynthis Fuller Virtue|
Hi, I have a family story that verifies that Robert is buried with his wife.
|Kathy Worley Peters||Cynthis Fuller Virtue|
I am so glad you uncover gravestones. I went to Morrow County to try to locate Robert (her husband) and her grave. I couldn't even locate the cemetery. Someone at the library told me it was in a back yard in overgrown weeds. Robert would be the brother to my g-g grandfather. I am going to added Robert even though there is no stone and connect him to his parents in Guernsey County.

you asked me to delete this memorial as a duplicate, I can find no other memorial for her, could you please give me the other memorial number.
Thank you so much for the transfers!
|Lynn E. Garn||Hillard Children|
Thanks for the transfer. I appreciate all the hard work. You may notice that I was able to photograph the grave markers for the four children. It's sad that none of them survived. Census records suggest that none of the children in this family survived to adulthood. I will definitely create separate memorials for the four children sometime in the next couple of days.

Absolutely - always particularly happy to help another volunteer! I added the plot location to the caption for the photo for both - and transcribed the names as - because of the lighting and angles, there was too much glare to make the photo readable.
