Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a genealogy enthusiast, a Civil War & U.S. military history buff and have always had a fascination with cemeteries. I'm also a USAF veteran of the Persian Gulf War and a second generation hillbilly (Kentucky).

My current Find-A-Grave projects are locating graves and updating existing memorials for members of two of my great-great-grandfather's Civil War regiments (23rd Kentucky and 28th Ohio Infantries, both Union). I appreciate all of the cooperation I'm receiving from my fellow gravers! I'm also helping to clean up the "Autograver" mess at Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Most of my memorials are family, but I do enter military veterans and other graves that may catch my eye from time to time. If I have a memorial of a relative or friend of yours, send me a transfer request by way of a SAC. I don't follow FAG's transfer guidelines as if they were the Ten Commandments like some folks do. If you have ever refused to transfer the memorial of a relative to someone - shame on you. That's just plain mean. What a truly horrible person it takes to be selfish with the memory of someone's deceased friend or loved one.

Please feel free to use my grave marker photos for your personal use.

RE: Krogmans @ Evergeen
Well thank you so much for taking the time trying to find Joseph Krogman. Wow I can't thank you enough for creating his daughter Gertrude and her families memorials! I will be contacting the office soon, I'm thinking whoever re-filed things may have joined Joseph Krogman with his son Joseph and made it into one grave.

RE: John Barnes @ Evergreen
That cem info is exactly what I had found on this person. I wasn't sure if I had the right person/headstone. And yes, please do find out if others were buried with him as well. I'm working on tying up on his family, my family, of course. Thank you very very much for affirming what I thought all along.

RE: Weller photos
You are welcome and am glad to have helped. I am what you might call a row "mower," so most request fulfillments come by a happy chance. While I am currently still working on uploading about 2500 photos from the cemetery, it is likely that the section that contained your relatives has already been uploaded. What I do know is that there are a good number of unmarked graves, and a good number of illegible markers. If I did not upload them, unless they are in a section of the cemetery that I did not do yet, then they may fall under those conditions.

Now, the good news is that I also simultaneously upload to BillionGraves.com. Since those images are crowdsource transcribed, they are mostly uploaded. I did apparently capture at least two more Weller's. You can see them listed here: http://billiongraves.com/pages/cemeteries/Oak-Woods-Cemetery-and-Confederate-Mound/180710#cemetery_id=180710&lim=0&num=25&action=search&family_name=weller&given_name=null

You can also see the photos, and see where they are located in the cemetery, as they are GPS tagged.

As to people who are buried there and died as early as 1860-1870, the number of legible markers from that period is few, although they certainly are there. So chances are that the only way you will be able to get information about where they are buried is from the office, which may cost $10 per record.

The neighborhood is certainly not what it was when the cemetery began. However, the cemetery is walled and has security and is quite safe. It is a beautiful place to visit too.

Thanks for your efforts re my Grand Uncle P.F.C. Hawkins. I just began review of my ancestry this year. Not sure what you mean by taking the responsibility. Please let me know what I need to do. Thanks again.

RE: Ruel & David Jefferies
I show their father as being Pierce Jefferies
b 8 Apr 1818 and d 7 Jan 1893, born in Chester Pennsylvania. Keep in touch and maybe we can help one another on the family line.

Ruel & David Jefferies
Rob,

Do you have any information on the parents of Ruel & David? I know their father was Pierce Jefferies born in 1818 and died in 1893. He was from Ohio and bought 160 acres. He was a brick layer in Warsaw. He later increased his acreage to 313 acres. I cannot find anything in Find A Grave for him or his wife Mary Schrack or Shrack.

My late ex-husband was the great grandson to Rose Etta Jefferies, Davids daughter.
