I grew up in and continue to live in the Southwestern corner of Ohio, near Kentucky and Indiana.

Eliza Miller- 83rd Birthday
Hello, I saw where you had left a message on memorial: 40000342. The person who manages the memorial doesn't allow people to message him so I'm messaging you. I uploaded a picture fromm the Albia paper from 1940 about her 83rd birthday. Thought you might enjoy it!
:)

RE: Charles D Spinning #133601165
I have two sources for her name. 1st, the Greenwood Cemetery site:
http://www.greenwoodcemeteryhamilton.com/
You can search for Charles here and it will give you his parents.
2nd, familysearch.org has the Ohio Deaths, 1908-1953. Search for Charles, died in Ohio in 1953. Same parents. These are two different records, but they actually could have been made with the same surviving member of his family. Somebody has made a mistake, but I don't know who.

Ida Moak Spinning
I'm confused! The 1900 census says that Nellie Spinning was born Aug 1885. Kate was born Mar 1885. Kate's mother didn't die until 1886.

William married Ida in 1888. I have a feeling that Nellie was Ida's by another father. The census only says that Ida had 1 child and 1 child living. Is it possible that Nellie took the Spinning name? I haven't found any indication that Ida was married before she married William.

Please contact me at nanabear39@comcast.net. Her father Uziah Moak was my first cousin four times removed. I've been tracing this family.

Robert Oker
I have already emailed Pami and have heard from her. I recognize Dominique's name. I think he has info on other soldiers involved in this story in addition to Mr. Oker. I think I've got some good leads. Thank you for your help!!

Hi Gail,

I am not related to Mr. Oker. He is one of several POWs I am researching. I am interested in his story. Could you email me the details at othmarsingen@bellsouth.net? Thank you.

Robert W. Oker
Hi Gail,

I saw your memorial for Robert Oker from Cincinnati. I was wondering if you knew him personally. I am researching the POW train he was on during WWII. Do you know anything about his time as a POW?
