Rosannah A.(nee Bowens) Varvel
I have attempted to contact you through the edit tab several times, it seems to have cliches.
Rosannah is my third great-grandmother. She was not the daughter of Mary "Polly" Dotson; nor was she the biological daughter of Daniel Boone Bowens. Daniel was married Before Mary. His first wife had two known sons by him and then in Spring of 1820 she was raped during an Indian raid on the family's cabin. Rosannah was the product of that rape, she was born 1 MAR 1821 at her granny's home in Virginia. After returning to Ohio with the baby; Rosannah's mother could not deal with the scorn from the rape and commited suicide within two years. Daniel was told by family and neighbors to give the girl back to the Indians. He did not and raised Rosannah as his own. If you have a DNA test done like many of my family, you should find you have Iroquois Indian blood in the mix.
I thought you might want to know this information to keep the record straight. My side have search for proof of this family lore for many decades. Our DNA and a termination of my third great-grandmother's Indian heritage circa 1903 helped confirm this family story (plus other things).
Blessings in all your endeavors,
Mary Richards

RE: Roseanna Bowen Varvel
Lori, that is fine. I'm not trying to gain numbers just sort of trying to uniform the families' memorials with correct information, possibly add family lore here and there. I will send you info and photos I would like added to her memorial, after the New Year. If you want you can add all/ part of the information and I will post the photos you approve. Wishing a Blessed Holiday Season to you and yours. Mary

RE: Rose Varvel
Lori, which one of her children do you descend from? I understand about the transfer, no bad feelings. We (Varvel descendants) are trying to link the family to make it easier for present day and future relatives to locate them and which branch is which, especially with so many like names. You and yours have a Blessed Christmas.

Ruth Lyons
Dear Lori~~~

Are you a life-long fan of "Mother's", the same as I am??? I'm afraid Ruth's followers are getting more and more scarce, though the turn-out at last Fall's reception introducing the newest DVD on her life's work was very well-attended, as I've heard. I watched The 50/50 Club as far back as I can remember and the late Bruce A. (who contributed to findagrave as well as several of the audio/video biographies on Ruth Lyons made in Cincinnati--his name is mentioned on the sleeves) shared such warm memories of growing up to her show; I still cry when I hear her Christmas music, I give every year to the Children's Christmas Fund and I mourn her passing (and the passing of an era), almost as a 2nd mother! I'm 60, probably one of the younger fans of Miss Lyons'. I hope to hear from you and your feelings about her and the gang from The 50/50 Club! Blessings always, Joan Peckham Korber

RE: Robert Bruce
You are very welcome. This is one of the oldest graves I have photographed for a request. I was very taken with the lovely carving on his marker.

This particular cemetery is fortunate in that the water they use for sprinklers is very pure, and does not leave deposits on the stones, nor does it degrade them. They are also blessed with no vandalism. For such old stones, this cemetery is full of remarkably well-preserved ones. It is quite unusual, in this area with mostly limestone-loaded water. Very nice.
