|Bio and Links|
Becky Jacobs graduated from Elgin High School. 7 generations of my family is buried in the Prospect Cemetery. (Live in Abilene, TX since 1977). I have worked on genealogy research for 40 years and just completed my 19th family history book. I published "The Scrapbook of Prospect Ohio Pioneers" in 1988 from clippings from my Great Grandmother Rebecca Jane Bevis Hedges of whom I was named. My dad, Carl L. Jacobs was a Prospect township trustee. My great grandfather Stephen Bingham McWherter was the Sexton at the cemetery from 1921 until his death in 1923.I have checked these records against death and census records. Over 8500 obits from my cousin Sarah Longnecker Reichardt's scrapbooks, she gave me years ago along with obits from the Prospect Monitor, Richwood Gazette and Marysville Journal Tribune obits will be added as time permits. Thanks to Stofcheck-Ballinger Funeral Home in Richwood in helping me to honor those that have gone before.|
My dad, Carl also served as a trustee at the York Cemetery in Union County, Ohio. I went to Byhalia-York from 1st to 8th grade before moving to Prospect. May 19 2011 permission was granted from Leona & David Gustafson to use their pictures of the York Cemetery. This has added greatly to the memorials. Thank you Leona & David for your years of taking these beautiful pictures, we know the families will appreciate them. We are all working toward the same cause to
preserve the family.
In 1991 my friend Sherry Bowen Barger helped me copy the old cemetery record books. Sep 2011 classmates Larry Osborn & wife Norma and Terry Redmon helped take 4800 pictures of tombstones. Cousins Sylvia Bevis Harmon & Jean Bevis Clingenpeel shared copies of obit for this cemetery.
Jim Issler is helping me on this project. He has gave me files for 1923-1949 that I have edited
Ralph Issler (Jim's dad) is Superintendent at the cemetery since 1988 and we appreciate the great job he does.
My goal on Find A Grave is to link families together NOT to just add names. I have spent 1000's of hours looking up birth,marriage and death records to have the record as accurate as possible.

|Base Kuhn||Hi there|
Thank you so much for Fay Maugans transfer. Very grateful.
|Forgetful Flo||Ben Harruff|
I am so happy you have found his grave. He was my G. G. Aunt's first husband out of two. The second husband is buried near her. Thank you so much!
Once again, I wish to tell you how much you are appreciated by someone you have helped so much with the adding of an obit to my ancestor 's grave. I literally have been able to trace my paternal grandparents due to these obits, and to verify others. Today another piece of the puzzle has been found because of you. Thank you AGAIN .

I have ISRAEL HEDGES parents as SILAS HEDGES and MARY COX - I need to verify this information as you show different parents?
Thank you for transferring my grandmother's memorial page to me. I appreciate your time in creating her page.
