Bio and Links
Bio Photo I first began genealogical research on my family about thirteen years ago. I continue to be amazed with finding relatives I have never heard of and ancestors going back to colonial America on many different lines.

It was through this research that I came across FAG and became a member. I am grateful to the many volunteers who have found and posted information on my large extended family and I try to give back where I can.

Most of the memorials I create are part of my extended family but I also take volunteer photos and have been working on a local cemetery that hold none of my family. If I have created a memorial for someone in your family, check with me. If it is unrelated I will gladly transfer management of the memorial to you. If it is a relative but not a direct ancestor of mine I will also consider transfer; just ask.

Hi, I linked Lavania #130688391 to her parents memorials that you did, Gaines and Mary (Neal) Massie. Let me know if you would like me to transfer her and her husband to you because you are related. I like to get family together on their trees.

I noticed that you listed Margaret's parents as David Gilson and Elizabeth Chain. This is exciting!
Were they from Columbiana County, too?

Shato Memorials in Gallia County

This is just a heads up. I've made a bunch of auto-edits on Shato and Shato related memorials, almost all in Gallia County, Ohio, that you have created and manage. I hope that these edits will be acceptable. I've been researching the Shatto/Shato family for about 30 years.

I am a Shatto family researcher. The Gallia Shatos are the only ones who have retained this spelling that was used by their ancestors in Trumbull County, OH, in the early 19th century. The ancestor of all the Gallia County Shatos was Daniel Shato (1826-1881 Find A Grave# 41613663). His father, Benjamin and grandfather Joseph used the Shatto spelling.

My aim for this limited family (not many in comparison to the Shatto spelling) is to develop or at least link up all the Shatos with roots in Gallia County.

Thanks much for your work getting these memorials established.

Best, Barry Michie Find A Grave # 47110636

Hello from Austria !
Please can you tell me if you are related with the Zeletzky family ? I have found Dennes and his two wifes you have added. Thank you so much for the Memorials. I am just searching my mothers family from Bohemia and Moravia.
With best regards

I saw that you created a record for this family member of mine…he is my Great Great Great Uncle…and I would love to have a picture of his grave. Have you taken one of this headstone? I appreciate any help you can provide as I live in Arizona and do not have access.

Happy hunting!

RE: Daniel Shato Memorial

Thanks much for the reply. Yes, please do have a look at the Daniel Shatto marker, assuming there is one, and get a photo up if at all possible.

Hope things unfreezing up in Ohio!

Best, Barry

Daniel Shato Memorial

Thanks so much for the extensive edits, particularly the bio-sketch, for Daniel Shato. He is the lynchpin for connecting the Gallia county Shatos to ancestors going back to the immigants to PA in 1739.

I only have one question/issue/problem that I don't know the answer to at the moment - the year of his birth. The memorial has 1828. Is this from the inscription? My other info has him born in 1826 but everything else the same.

Best and thanks for you quick attention.
