Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love history and genealogy, and I love mixing the two.

I love preserving old cemeteries by photographing the headstones, so many of my memorials are not related to me. If you are related to one of them, I will gladly transfer them over to you.

I have lived in southern Ohio my whole life, but I love to travel, so you never know where I will be hunting tombstones next.

Birch & McKiragan Photo
Hello, Amber...

I have a request for you. Some time ago, you posted a Gravestone photo to William R. Birch # 42842810 and his wife Sarah Elizabeth [McKiragan] Birch # 42843046 on their memorials. At the bottom of the Gravestone is the name of her brother, John McKiragan # 147744507 who died in her home. Could you also post that photo to John's memorial as well ?
I'd be grateful if you could.
Thanks !!

Please disregard the below message.

looking at the document it shows
age 14 years 2 months born virginia

I believe the death record is incorrect

Hi again,
I'm finding the Joshua Johnson that died July 28th 1871 to have been born in Virginia about 1857. Died at age 14.

The memorial owner has been notified and hopefully it will be corrected. Unfortunately several people have linked with this memorial.

Sarah Kennelly Johnson's husband can not be this memorial.

I happened to catch Henry Koenig's (47813856) grave at a good time of day, so I uploaded the photo. I hope you don't mind.

Dietrich Kehr
Hello Amber,
first thank you very much for providing the information about Dietrich Kehr and related people. I think he is one of my ancestors who moved from Germany to Ohio over hundred years ago. I myself am German but I am staying in the US (Wisconsin) for a semester abroad. I am planning on visiting Ohio for Thanksgiving and would be really happy to find out more about my ancestors.
Here is the information I have:
Dietrich Kehr,
PARENTS: Johannes Kehr (10/7/1815 - 6/26/1896) and Elise Dorothea Kehr (Fuchs) (1/5/1823 - 1/1/1892)
BORN IN: Burg-Gemuenden (Oberhessen), Germany (around 1850?)
MOVED TO: Butler, Fairfield, Ohio (around 1880?)
SIBLINGS: Johannes (John?) Kehr (moved to Oxford, Ohio)
Georg Kehr (*9/9/1849) (stayed in Germany -> my grand-grand-grandfather)
possibly more

It would be so great if you could give me more information about these people and your opinion if you think this is the right Dietrich Kehr I found. It would be very awesome if you will be able to tell me if someone of this family is still living in the area or how I could find this out (is there a webpage for that?)

Thank you so much in advance!
All the best wishes,

PS: I would be also happy about any kind of information from everybody else who reads this! Thank you!

RE: Armstrong
I am not related to them now. I was married to an Armstrong. I work on their family for my children. If you want to transfer them, you can or keep them it is entirely up to you. No problem either way.
