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.

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

Iona Miller
I believe your photo on #46517597 should go on #34605532.
Iona's memorial is in North Salem Cemetery.

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.

RE: Hosfelt
Thanks again for the info. One more question on this. Is there someone I could phone or write to that could help with the county records.

RE: Hosfelt
Nancy, thanks for the info. Will see what I can find on line at the sites you gave me. Being in Calif. is a little hard getting to the library there. One info you do have, do you know where it came from?

Nancy, do you know of anyway getting in touch with someone who would know a where the records, if there are any, for Forney Cemetery. You have two memorials for a Herman and Lewis Hosfelt and I think they may be the ones I'm trying to find. I was hoping for records to link them to the parents.
They would have been Great Grand Uncles.
