Bio and Links
I am a family history researcher. I have really appreciated all the information I have found on Find A Grave and consider it a great site and I am so grateful to all the people who post information and photos.

I do have a problem with people who refuse to transfer memorials of people to whom they are not related to someone who is related. I will never do that. Generally I only put up memorials for people to whom I am related, even if only as an in-law, and I will always transfer to someone more closely related.

If I am in a cemetery and end up with photos of graves of unrelated people, I may create a memorial, but will gladly transfer it to someone who is related or wants to maintain that memorial.

Because of the confusion of having three cemeteries named "Bethel Cemetery" in Athens Co., OH, and some burials that belong in one of the Bethels being listed in Canaanville Cemetery, Athens Co., OH, I have made memorials to people I am not related to in order to try to straighten out who is where. Again, I will gladly take them down or transfer them if requested.

Please note:

Bethel Cemetery (sign says), known as Bethel Ridge Cemetery,Gloucester, OH 45732, in York Twp., Athens Co., OH.

Bethel Cemetery, Ames Twp., Athens Co., OH, just west of the junction of Pete Smith Rd. and Dutch Creek Rd., a little after crossing the creek, on the right. Land donated by Stalder family, part of the original Swiss Colony of Athens Co., OH; land was part of their farm.

Bethel Cemetery, Coolville, OH 45723, Troy Twp., Athens Co., OH. Sign says "Right of Way Entrance Only."

Canaanville Cemetery, next to Canaanville United Methodist Church, 15650 Mcafee Rd. (Twp. Rd. 605), Athens, OH 45701.

JR de Steiguer
Thanks so much for putting JR de Steiguer on Find-a-Grave. He and Laura W. Ames were my great-great grandparents. I visited their graves in 1979, and later helped to place the newer small marker that sits in front of the broken obelisk. Their son, Dr. Edward de Steiguer, moved to Texas about 1868. He and his wife Julia Wolf Bryan were my great grandparents.

William and David Turner
I was friends with William George "Pop" Turner born 1899 in Hornitos, CA died 1999 in Fresno, CA. I had the privilege of attending his 100th birthday party in 1999 3 months before he passed away. He was born to George David Turner (born 1871 in California) and was proud of his ancestors. I believe Alexander is his uncle and William T Turner is his great uncle. Pop did not descend directly from the early sheriffs of Mariposa County, but from their brother's line. He is from the Turners of Hornitos. I made a correction based on the age 55 which would indicate 1797 instead of 1801, but I can correct that to 1801 if the information fits. I have seen many incorrect headstones in my wanderings. I also contacted Ed Smith to see if he would attach William T to David.

You need to be specific and send a link if I need to see something. Thanks for contacting me though.

Samuel Miller
Samuel Miller is not under my care so I am unable to correct anything about his memorial, and the person who has care of it has also passed away
