Here's my story... I am a member of Philippi Baptist Church. When I joined I was appalled by the condition of the cemetery and the graves in it. I am still trying to find a way to get the condition of the cemetery improved. I did a complete survey of the cemetery with pictures. I have entered them on an excel spreadsheet. It includes: Name, birth, death,spouse,father and mother.It took me almost two years to research these people and get the information on my spreadsheet. I am still working on it. Just yesterday I made 34 additions to the people that are on Find A Grave (Find A Grave)and I will be adding more today. There are a lot of people on my list that are not on Find A Grave so I will be adding them this coming week. My mission is to connect Church Members to the people in the cemetery thru family trees. Hopefully this will build some interest in repairing the cemetery. My family name is SWEARINGEN. When I started doing Ancestry work on my family I got consumed with this work. I feel like the LORD has given me this task. You'd be surprised at some of the trails HE has sent me on to find information on someone. I love ancestry and I work on it every day. God bless you.

RE: Charles and Effie Boze OK, I fixed her links so it wouldn't enter Charles twice. I had submitted to her manager links to Charles and her parents. All well now and eventually her parental links will happen. thanks for letting me know!
Ethel Lewis graveste Thank you so much for the photo of my grandmother's cemetery entrance. I have been searching for her records and was very pleased to find this listing. I believe you might be related to Earl and Wilma Collier, my great uncle and aunt and would like to get back in touch with the family in Texas to further my family history research. Please send me an email at email@example.com. or call me at (419) 433-0193. I live in Huron, Ohio.
