Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a genealogy enthusiast, a Civil War & U.S. military history buff and have always had a fascination with cemeteries. I'm also a USAF veteran of the Persian Gulf War, a second generation hillbilly and recently commissioned as a Kentucky Colonel. Being a career NCO (former USAF Technical Sergeant), I struggle with this. A large bowl of ice cream usually remedies the situation.

My current Find-A-Grave projects are locating graves and updating existing memorials for members of two of my great-great-grandfather's Civil War regiments (23rd Kentucky and 28th Ohio Infantries, both Union). I appreciate all of the cooperation I'm receiving from my fellow gravers!

Most of my memorials are family, but I do enter military veterans and other graves that may catch my eye from time to time. If I have a memorial of a relative or friend of yours, send me a transfer request by way of a SAC. I don't follow FAG's transfer guidelines as if they were the Ten Commandments like some folks do. If you have ever refused to transfer the memorial of a relative or close friend to someone (simply because the guidelines say that "you don't have to") - shame on you. That's just plain mean. What a truly horrible person it takes to be selfish with the memory of someone's deceased friend or loved one.

Wikipedias definition of "guidelines":

A guideline is a statement by which to determine a course of action. A guideline aims to streamline particular processes according to a set routine or sound practice. By definition, following a guideline is never mandatory. Guidelines are not binding and are not enforced..

Hey Rob,

I don't know which one she was married to. Both Sidney Luther and Sidney are buried beside wives they married before the marriage of Sidney & Anna. It could be there was another Sidney or one of these two divorced the first wife briefly, married Anna then she died and he remarried the first spouse. I have seen that kinda thing too. Sorry, I'm not much help on this one.

It's connected from your memorial if you want to remove the link.

RE: Campbell County GenWeb
Thanks Rob! I notice that your extract includes:

"Carothers, Clara b-12 Dec 1866 in Mt Pleasant Iowa; d/o Dr. Robert Carothers of Mariemont Oh; d-12 June 1945; br-in sec 57 lot 81 E1/2"

This seems like Clara Cole, his wife, rather than his daughter--as per our trip to Sec 57-81 but I am not an expert on these Carothers...could just be a transcription error.

She fought well.
Thank you, Rob

I got your message about Uncle Roy.
The sniper story was told to me by my mom
and several other siblings.
I added what I found in his bio as well.

I know what you mean about meeting a fellow graveyard junkie. Did that once here.

I actually will be in Cincy from late Sept 4 & leave early on the 12th. I hope to have time to walk one cemetery.

RE: Nice meeting you!
Thanks for your help! I have just added the photos and linked together a few more of the Carothers...Without you, it never could have happened! I appreciate your hard work and kindness!

Thanks for the awesome photos! Amazing how the family changed the spelling of that name many times.

RE: William McDonnell
This is what we have:
William McDonnell, aka McDonald, born circa 1826. Enlisted in the 4th OVC on 9/30/1861 and mustered out on a medical discharge on 2/25/1863. He was captured by John Hunt Morgan at the Battle of Lexington, KY on 10/18/1862 and paroled the next day. There was a pension filed on him on 10/2/1886. That's all we have on him.

RE: William McDonnell
Did he serve in the 4th Ohio Volunteer Cav during the Civil War? We have an AKA on McDonnell as McDonald.
