Bio and Links
Bio Photo In the 1980's I started researching my Linn ancestors (without benefit of computer) but got busy with my sons' activities and put it on hold. In 1999 a cousin got me involved with my Steinberg ancestors and I have been going full speed ahead ever since.

Upon graduating from the University of Illinois my father obtained employment in the State of Washington, far from any relatives. My ancestors (after entering the USA)settled in Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Montana, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio and New Jersey - I want to experience first hand where and how they lived so I travel the country obtaining data, meeting people, seeing the sights and tramping cemeteries. I missed the "cousin experience" growing up and think that is why I enjoy genealogy so much -- meeting new cousins (who cares if they are 1st or 10th cousins)and sharing our family histories.

I am researching Linn, Gibson, Weir, Scott, Polk, Steinberg, Koerner, Mitten, Bennett, Switzer (Swisher), Slonaker, Shaw, Goff, Townsend, McCarty and Whitehead, Miller, Schroen, Glabe, Schafer/Schaefer/Shafer. I am also reseaching Dishon, Deshon, DeShon, Deschamps and Herrold for my two sons.

RE: Memorial# 28728970

You are welcome. She is in what is called section 10. The sections are numbered 1 thru 12 from left to right. Sections 10, 11 and 12 have short rows. Look for a Riter marker with names on four sides to the right of Clara. The burial to her left is her brother, infant son is on his memorial.--Storres

RE: Marion Elrick
The stone has Elizabeth daughter of Barnard & Syrena(not sure if I spelled that right) maybe that date 1817 is the year Elizabeth was born. I been photographing the Union Cemetery and have been adding some photos to your memorials you have made there. Carla 😊

RE: Marion Elrick
Jan, you are very welcome! That stone has fallen over and was covered with grass & dirt. When I go back I'll take another photo of it to see if it turns out better. There is another stone by that one that has Elizabeth Elrick daughter of Barnard & Syrena, some of the front of the stone has fallen off but the date looks like 1817. There is another stone near them that has fallen over face down, so I'll see it I can get it turned over. Do have a book that you are getting your information out of for the memorials you are making in the Saint Clairsville Union Cemetery? Carla :)
