RE: Eli Young, Poe Cemetery
Good for you, Matt! I stopped working on my book to enter information into Find a Grave and haven't gotten back to it yet. I had an almost clear field to work at Poe in the lines of Miller, Young, Eberhard/Everhart and Clendenin. Also, I have worked at Five Points Cemetery(Mason Township, Cass Co.) and Constantine Township Cemetery (Constantine, St. Joseph Co., MI) - the former cemetery holds my oldest Millers (arrived in Mason Township in 1835) and the latter holds my most recent family members. I have tried to write bios and link everyone as I go. I decided to drop everything and work on this because, as I'm sure you know, it is a lot easier to be the original manager of a Memorial page rather than a "Johnny Come Lately"! It is nice to heard from you. I have all of Eli and Becky's children entered, so you can just follow the links and read about Eli's daughter (my great-grandmother), Anna Rebecca (Youngs) Miller, her husband, Sherm Miller, my grandparents, Clyde and Nellie Miller, and my parents, Galen and Betty Miller. This has been fun!

RE: Eli Young, Poe Cemetery
Hi, Matt,
Good luck with your book. I am working on chapter 9 of mine about the Millers, but I keep having these pleasant interruptions, like this one! I was so excited to discover that the Constantine Cemetery and Poe were being worked on by Find a Grave volunteers now, and you know how entering one grave leads to another five or so! Thank you for making the transfer. I am very new to all of this, but I have used information from Find a Grave for years from other parts of the country west of the Mississippi.

Eli Young, Poe Cemetery
Hi, Matt,
You are working ahead of me on the Youngs family. I have been busy entering in the Millers in Poe Cemetery. Would you mind transferring Eli Young's Memorial to me? I have additional information I would like to include seeing that he is my great-great-grandfather. For one thing, I know his birth date, using his death record in Cass County, is Feb. 16, 1831, but the excellent photo you have provided clearly says Feb. 18. Also, Wyandot County did not exist in Ohio when Eli was born (formed in 1845), so I would like to explain that in his Bio. I wish we were not so stuck in Ohio when it comes to the parents of Eli, Alexander, and, and William! I will type up the information for Becky, Eli's wife, because I don't think that has been done.
