Bio and Links
Names researching: Ankrum, Carothers, Clark, Kennedy, Miller, McMunn, McConnell, Umstott, Workman. Also interested in Kimbolton, Ohio history.

I enjoy photographing stones especially before they are lost to time and the elements. It's incredible how even in ten years time how much a stone can deteriorate.

Every person in a cemetery was once someone's daughter, son, father, mother, brother or sister and they all have a story to tell and they were all once important to someone.

Ankrum Family
Thank you for the work on the Ankrum family as Archibald P Ankrum is 1st cousin 3x removed. I go back to George Ankrum when he came to America from Ireland. He is my 5th great grandfather. You've help me out with dates and added information on relatives thru findagrave.

John Strauch, Mary Mann
John Strauch and Mary Mann are my great-great grandparents. In 1850 census records they were in Zwitzerland township, Monroe county, Ohio. I have found a record of their daughter Catherine Blattler who died in 1930 and is buried in Zion Cemetery, Monroe county, Ohio. Is it possible that this is the same as Zion Methodist Cemetery and that Mary Mann Strauch is buried there also. In addition I have found a 1900 census record where Mary Mann was living with Catherine and Christian Blattler in Adams township, Monroe county, Ohio. Mary's husband John, who was a Methodist minister and died in 1880, is buried in Jeffersonville, Clark county, Indiana. Any assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated.

Forney Cemetery Birds Run
Hi Nancy-

My name is Tom Arbour and I live in Columbus- I believe we may have talked in the past about the cemeteries in the Birds Run area. I recently visited Forney Cemetery, where my great great grandmother Armintha Thomas is buried. Thank you for your photo of the neighboring memorial for Samuel Johnson, her brother. When I visited the cemetery last week, this stone had toppled over, and the engraving was laying face down in the soil. I turned it over, but it was very difficult to read. In your photo posted here, it is still readable- thank you very much for your work to preserve the headstones at Forney Cemetery.

Martha Umstott 1866-1918
Hi, I saw a comment of yours on the page for Martha Umstott Fuller Eagon. Since you have done research on the Umstotts, do you have any info regarding Martha's first husband, James Fuller? I notice the FindAgrave page indicates they were married in Tusc. Co. in 1889 but I can't confirm that by looking at the Marriage Index on (and come up with nothing on familysearch)// I am quite curious about what happened to James Fuller. I can find no trace of him after 1900 in Lorain OH and it appears Martha took only their daughter and moved to Belmont County somewhere around 1902-1904. Any insight you can provide would be very much appreciated. thanks, Sherry

Anna Lynch
Thank you very much for transferring Anna's memorial page to me.

Growing up in Ohio, traveling all over the state, former Ohio History teacher and one of my hobbies being OH history, I know where every small town, nook and cranny is in Ohio, but I have to admit Kimbolton was new to me and I had to look it up! I'm surprised I haven't come across it in my Guernsey County searches for family.

Again, thank you. I really appreciate it.
