|Bio and Links|
I am a native resident of Dayton, Ohio, son of Myron Dale and Emma Lucille (Smith) Poling. My favorite hobby has always been genealogy, but I started seriously studying my roots in 1993. I am single and retired after 30 combined years of service with the Montgomery County Clerk of Courts & Prosecuting Attorney offices. I enjoy entering information at Find A Grave. I have entered as much as I could find information on six cemeteries; Vernon Baptist Cemetery, Clinton County, Ohio; St. Paul Lutheran Cemetery, North Star, Ohio; Roxanna Cemetery, Roxanna, Ohio; Mount Holly Cemetery, Mount Holly, Ohio; McKnight Cemetery, Spring Valley, Ohio; Spring Valley Cemetery, Spring Valley, Ohio; and Sections A, B & C of Woodland Cemetery, Xenia, Ohio. I have a full subscription to ancestry.com, and access to other sources. I like to research a persons name and add a small bio where possible. Please contact me with corrections / suggestions / links for my entries. Also contact me if you would like me to transfer a relatives memorial page to you. |
Personal Note: I do not see Find A Grave as an internet game, trying to get high numbers of memorials & pictures added. I have seen people who have been a member of Find A Grave for 1 year and have added 100,000 memorials. Then when you review their memorials I find names mis-spelled, birth & death dates wrong, either no places of birth & death or they are listed in the bio instead of the proper fields provided by Find A Grave. Then I see pictures upside down, part of the stone not in the picture, pictures on wrong graves. Then there are pictures that haven't been cropped and you see more grass than stone and you can't even read the stone. I have been a member of Find A Grave for over 9 years and I average 10 memorials weekly. I take time to research the person to see if I can add middle names, maiden names, full birth & death dates, places of birth & death, and a small bio. My advice is to please slow down & proof read your work before clicking save. Yes, I do make mistakes and appreciate you pointing them out to me. My mistakes are because I am human and not because I am in a hurry to get a high number of memorials & pictures added. Also, if you take time to proof read your work, and do a little research on the person you are creating a memorial page for, you won't receive dozen upon dozens of Edits requests.
Thank you for taking time to read my bio.

Thank you John for the updates re; Evelyn Mae Hagedorn Daniel.
We did not know much about her other than she was married to Gandpa Bob until her death.
Onward we travel,
|Stu Haley||Letta Monnette|
I forgot to give you her listing number, 38300226.
|Stu Haley||Letta Monnette, nee Smith|
Hi John, I added Angeletta (Letta) Monnette, nee Smith several years ago and today I linked her to her parents - who you added (Henry B. Smith and Cassandra Smith in Spring Valley Cemetery). Are you any relation to Letta? She was married to a cousin, Arthur Monnette, but we don't have a picture of her or Arthur. Any chance you might if you are related?
Sorry to bother you again. After transferring Harold "Eli" Spencer to me I added his parents Greeley Spencer and Maggie Blankenship Spencer. His parents only child listed on their sites was Troy Spencer...although there are 4 more children who are dead but I cannot verify them in Find A Grave to add them. Somehow when I added Harold's parents to his page it added Harold as his own sibling!!! I have no idea how to fix that! Is there a way to fix it??
I would have contacted Find A Grave instead of bothering you again but I couldn't find any link to them.
