I have been researching my family for over 19 years now. It has been and continues to be a fulfilling endeavor.

I have traveled to most locations my Ancestors have lived in and dug though the archives, courthouses and libraries of towns they have resided in to learn more about them. Our Ancestors are more then just a birth and death date. Those dates are important but they don't speak to the life they lead between their birth and death date. I have tried to lay flowers at every ancestors stone or burial place I have ever visited.
Most records I have obtained were not obtained electronically, Ancestry was in its infancy and societies and libraries didn't even have computers let alone email. Many of the popular sites simply did not exist. Researching was labor intensive and expensive. You had to communicate with societies by writing in-depth letters and they were sent via US Mail, or you called or visited places in person. I would not trade that journey for anything. There is no greater thrill than making your own discoveries.

Happy Hunting and I do hope you do some digging and not just downloading and copying or you will miss an amazing journey.

Wishing You Many AHA MOMENTS

Apology Accepted
I didn't even see your email until this morning! I would've brought up the death certificate as proof anyway. But he's buried with A Helen, as both of his wives were named Helen. You were partially right :) I try to be as accurate as I can.

Happy Hunting,
P. Quinn

RE: re Mary Espich
I have a receipt for one of my husband's ancestors also. Moved from Community cemetery (Now Miamisburg library park) in 1890. It was a huge stone, but not moved. Many of the remains were never moved, as family had to do it. In 1967, while digging a water line in the park,an iron casket was found, remains unknown. Lots of history for these cemeteries. Check out Miamisburg Historical Society's web site

My guess is she was moved from one of the 4 local Miamisburg cemeteries that closed and moved the remains to Hill Grove.

RE: Maria Eskick
Thank you. Maybe her stone was not moved from the other cemetery with her. Where was she buried first? If it is close to me I will look.

I photographed the entire cemetery and dug up about 150 stones, some really worn. I got this record from a book of burials. Thanks for finding her.
