Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in Cortland, Trumbull Co., Ohio to my wonderful parents, Lawrence Ralph Stiles and Bonnie Annalee McIe.

I attended West Virgina University in Morgantown, WV (where my parents were both born) and graduate school at UMASS,Boston, while living in Somerville, MA (with a brief stay in Nashua, NH.) In 2001, I moved to New Port Richey, FL where the thought of shoveling snow makes me smile, realizing that it is just a memory!

I took on my mother's labor of love in researching family after she passed away in 1999. I fondly remember sitting at my grandmother's kitchen table listening to family stories while my mother, grandmother, and great grandmother sat drinking their coffee. I realize now that I should have paid better attention. How often does someone get to sit and be part of a four generation conversation!

If there is any way that I can help other people in the research of their family, please don't hesitate to contact me. I know what it is like to "dig" around in cemeteries with the hope of finding that long-lost relative.

May God bless you all as He has me by allowing me to relive all my wonderful childhood memories.

Permission to use photo
Hi Sheila

I am developing a history website for the city of Rainier and one page lists Rainier cemeteries with links to Find a grave. I would like to use your photo of the Woodbine Cemetery sign. I will give you credit as the photographer.

Thank you

Sheila, do you know if Bennett Cemetery in Upshur County, WV was once called "Kanawha Head Cemetery"? I was told so, but can find no proof. Thanks!

Emil Hackenberg and family
I am the grandchild of Guy Vincent McDonnell and his wife, Caroline S. Kirkpatrick. My aunt (now deceased) Mary McDonnell Kanick, of Wheeling, was the informant on Emil's death certificate. I know there is some kind of connection with the Hackenberg's but am unsure of just what it is. My grandmother was a ward of Emil's. Please contact me if you have any info to pass on. Thank you.

RE: Casterline Cemetery
In the Bio it mentioned Ziba who was born in 1801 was a Civil War physician, there are 2 Ziba's listed and niether of them was born in 1801, so was wondering if you could clear tht up for me. I'm kind of new to Find A Grave and was amazed to just click from my grandfather to his dad, to his dad, and so on to my 4Z grandfather Ziba, whose page also mentiones his dad Silas. I had a first cousin who grew up here in MI, who now lives in Warren OH. I saw him recently and mentioned the Casterline Cemetery and he said "that right where I live, but we aren't related to them." I said "Yes we are!" It's kind of cool that he returned to the land of his forefathers and didn't even know it! Any Info you could give would be welcome.
