Mary Dukes in Dukes Cemetery
Hello. I am trying to find out a little more information on Mary Dukes memorial #52186588. Do you know if this is the same Mary Haddox Dukes that was married to John Dukes Seaborn both from Virginia? I am having a hard time finding both of their burial locations but I have found a couple records noting that they are buried in the Dukes cemetery there in Hancock, Ohio. Any information you can provide would be wonderful. Thanks!

RE: Could you check one more?
Well, the spelling is part of what has created havoc in trying to find the family. The surname showed up with all sorts of spelling variations on vital records. Most frequently, it was Sines. But, records that I know to be for the family also have Senns, Sims, Sins, and Signs. Who knows... I may even find another spelling at some point! Without a date of death or some document showing our John and Margaret were buried at Latty, I'm hesitant to claim those two. I think it's more likely the family is buried together in some cemetery that has not found its way to FindAGrave.

John and Margaret Sins are ours! I do not see those memorials here. Could you please tell me the cemeteries and possibly the plot locations, and I can add them? Thank you! I will also check any burials in Defiance. I have also found relatives before by expanding the search, especially in areas where I knew the geography. For many of the early burials near the Kansas/Nebraska state line, you can find their burials not only in a different county, but in a different state!

RE: wife of Jacob Oberhauser
I am unable to find any other mention of her anywhere except Rutherford B. Hayes Obituaries does mention her in the obituary of her daughter, Catherine Buchman. She is noted in the notes as Catherine's mother. I am currently awaiting the ordered obituary hoping for further information Thanks so much for responding.

RE: Could you check one more?
Hi, those other four graves are related, but are not immediate family. Matilda's husband was buried in Kansas many years later. I believe that our four family members would have been buried close to each other, given the close proximity of their deaths. The names are: Belinda Woods Sines (1828-1882), Harriet Sines Frey (1862-1881), Matilda Sines Hawkins (1856-1882) and Lodenna Hawkins (1881-1882). The name Lodenna may not be on the headstone, as the only evidence we have of this child is the birth record. Belinda and Harriet were shown living by each other in Harrison, Paulding County, on the 1880 Census, and Matilda is shown living in Antwerp with her children. Belinda's husband Jonathan Sines is shown as a "prisoner" in Paulding, Paulding County, on the same Census. Was there a cemetery in the area that was created during the period of significant deaths from tuberculosis in the early 1880's?

wife of Jacob Oberhauser
Does anyone have picture or information re: Eva Rosina Ulm Oberhauser? She is Jacob Oberhauser's wife and I am unable to find any information about her beyond 1860 census. Is her grave next to Jacob's in Ottoville?

Could you check one more?
For the book you have for Paulding burials, could you please check for one more name? I realized I had not given you the married surname for Matilda. She would have been buried with the name Matilda Hawkins. I suspect the family is buried somewhere together, as they all died in fairly fast succession during a tuberculosis outbreak from winter 1881 to early summer 1882.
