Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been in this business for almost 14years and find myself learning something new on a daily basis. I originally researched only my family's roots however I soon found that my talents could assist others in their quest for knowledge.

Any information on my memorials is either my own or taken from public historical documents. If you are on a memorial with a photo I took, then please ask me if you can use the photo. Thanks!

If you would like assistance with your genealogy or more information on any of the individuals in my database, then please e-mail me!

Charles Kott
While at Concordia Cemetery I searched for Charles Kott's headstone. I found stones for William Kott and Anna Kott who do not have memorials on Find A Grave, and for a Charles Kott. In the case of the latter, the dates are not the same so I have not posted the picture. According to the headstone the dates for this Charles are 1883 - 1954. If you would like to set up memorials for these folks I'd be happy to post the pictures I have.

Many thanks,
Denise Jones

I'm sorry but I have sent out many inquiries and unless you can tell me what I asked you I can't answer intelligently. Getting old I guess! Thanks

May I share this with some of those in the picture that I know or have in my family tree please. Is this taken from a publication? If so, what one - I'd like to see if I can find a copy or it.

RE: Christian Kuech
Very cool that you have amassed so much information about the Kott family! I am just getting into ancestry research within the past few months and am learning new things as I go. Is your 100 pages, or the portion that would include my family (Kuch/Kuech), for sale to me for my research at all? Or is it that since the Kott's commissioned you the information would be proprietary to them? And would there be a way to make it compatible with, or readable by, a Mac?

Also, I would like to ask your permission to use your photo of Paulus Kuch's headstone. I have been to Trinity Lutheran Cemetery to take photos as well but in the 7 years since you initially took your photo the writing, especially the surname, is more difficult to read and is represented better in your photo than mine.

RE: Christian Kuech
Thank you very much! Can I ask where you found the parent's information for Christian Kuech? It was from your FindAGrave entry of him that I learned his mother's middle name was Bertha. I was also very happy last week to have located & photographed his father Paulus' grave in another cemetery! Thanks again for updating the sibling info.

RE: Josiah Hopkins
No problem, GeneaProtector, I admire all the hard work you've done. It must be difficult to manage all those memorials!

RE: Josiah Hopkins
Hi there,
I meant to contact you, but have been swamped. Since her's already had everything (except bio & links). She gave it to me, and I made it like the one i gave to you... You can go ahead and delete yours. Probably when I'm done with it, I'll turn it back over to you for safe keeping...

Now if I could just find some other's to complete the link all the way back...

Still missing is his dad:
Sylvanus Hopkins (1716 - ____)

His grandpa:
Judah Hopkins (1677 - ____)
(Did you write on this one that you had a hunch, or did I write that? (Sorry getting old and forgetful!)

Of course the women are missing too. :)

You'll notice that I have found a bit more of the children... I'm pretty sure about Freeman, but I didn't ask for his owner to link him up until I have even more proof. Washington County, Ohio is so far away from the rest in Ohio, but the times and a possible son with the name Josiah sounds like the right Freeman...

I have no luck finding the oldest three:
Josiah Jr, Samuel, Anna; nor the youngest who died as a baby: John Pierce.

James Mozis
Unfortunately, there was no headstone for James Mozis in Section 13. I took a picture of the section and surrounding headstones.
