Bio and Links
Bio Photo BTW...Dad died in early June 2014--if you sent me a note & I did not respond--please resend!

I am married with 3 children & 5 grandchildren; we have had dogs living with us since 1969, when our 2 BIG dogs (a Lab & a German Shepard) died several years ago we decided to get a smaller dog. This 25 pound dynamo now lives with us and answers to ZEUS; he is well loved by all!

Some thoughts I've found posted by others:
To the world you may be just one person, but to one person you may be the world.

Those we love don't go away...
They walk beside us every day!!!
Unseen, unheard, but always near....
Still loved, still missed and very dear!

Small plaque shown by a cemstone says:
Our family chain is broken & nothing seems the same, but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.

I have been researching since 1983, started all this to find my birth mother, did that; discovered I really enjoyed the hunt for missing relatives now long gone.
I always did like solving puzzles, but now I find the answers are not "in the back of the book" but usually found on a web page, a newspaper, a cemstone or hidden in a courthouse somewhere.
If you happen to share family members with me, PLEASE let me know. Drop me a line, to let me know that you found an entry, especially if you have something to add; or a correction to make. If you have a bio entry you would like to have included no problem-send it; will post. Dianna

RE: Memorial--Dorothy Smith
Thank you so much for your help! I have deleted the picture of YOUR Dorothy Fay Smith--at least I think so. I will check back in a few minutes to make sure.

I am very sorry about the error. I am 84 years old and have been using a computer since the 1970's. Should be able to do better. I really want to learn how to use Findagrave properly. I have been a genealogist since I was 20 years. When I started, many of the people I contacted gave me pictures because I was the only one who was interested and they wanted them to be saved. My family on both sides were packrats! Not only did they keep old photographs, but they actually wrote names on the backs. I have accumulated a great many pictures that I think probably no one else has. I would like to keep faith with those people who entrusted me with their treasured pictures by being a good steward and sharing them with other descendants.

I notice that YOUR Dorothy Fay Smith was buried in Jefferson Co, OH. A number of my family lines came through Jefferson Co, OH, i.e: Hill, Jenkins, Horsman, Cousins. I have pictures of Joseph Hill and his wife Esther Jenkins; they were born 1798 & 1805 respectively. Any chance that we are related? Netti

RE: Memorial--Dorothy Smith
I am so embarrassed! That picture is of my aunt--Dorothy Fay Yantis Smith. I realized my mistake almost immediately, but don't know how to delete the photo. I have added it to the proper person now.

RE: Mabel Ellen Coleman

it appears the other is more complete, with exception of the grave marker photo.
So if Lynn Schneider wants to add that, I could just remove the duplicate entry.

RE: Melvin R DeRoss--105785902
There is a death record on file in the Marion Public Library Database which shows he was born June 17, 1876 and died November 5, 1944. There was also an obituary dated Nov. 6, 1944.
To search this Database:

So, it appears that the death year on his stone is incorrect.

I you would like, I would be happy to get copies the next time I visit the libary.

I am new to this site, and found a link to my grandma Grace Sharbonda. I don't know much about this family so I am hoping that you might know something. I also sent you a email which will have my contact information in it.
Thanks so much for any help. Marinda

Hi Dianna,
This appears to be you Garland. I checked my records and I made a typo on his birthdate. Sorry for the confusion.
