Bio and Links
Bio Photo If I can help any one with photos of gravesites in Hancock or Allen counties in Ohio, I will be more than happy to help. I enjoy helping others with solving genealogy puzzles as I'm sure most of us run across some at one point or another. I love doing research, whether it helps me or another person. I've gotten to know so many wonderful people through Find A Grave and Ancestry. There are those that I have helped and those that have helped me. One of my experiences through FAG is receiving pictures of my great-great-grandparents (they lived in NW Ohio) from a distant family member in Oregon while I live in the midwest. What a thrill for me that was. It was because of a photo request I put in for her grandmother's grave in Santa Barbara, California. Her grandmother was my gr-great grandmother's namesake. The relative saw the request and contacted me wanting to know who I was out of curiosity. It is a small world we live in after all!

RE: Summers Family Photos
I really wish I could, but Find a Grave will not allow anyone to add to celebrities graves unless they can PROVE for SURE that they belong to that person. I did try uploading for Hope Summers last Fall, but it goes into a review process and then THEY decide whether it can be added. I am certain it is Hope's grave along with her family, but the dates on her stone do not correlate with sites such as Wikipedia, which often contain misinformation. When researching her, I sure did learn a lot about the family, how her father was a physician, how they traveled from Illinois to Walla Walla, etc. Even saw her family's names on the Federal Census sheet in the early 1900s, where she went to college, etc. Her given name was a little different than her stage name. So I guess we will just have to let Hope rest in peace. Thanks for asking. (I pass by her grave frequently and it is a nice quiet spot close to the outer border of the cemetery which is across the street from an Elementary School and Fire Station.) Have a Happy Mother's Day! Eileen

RE: Marette Thompson

Marette Thompson
Also, the only information I can find on Marette is from her tombstone-no death or birth info, so I want to know what right.

Marette Thompson
I am trying to figure out info on Marette Thompson, buried in Maysville Cemetery, Hardin, Ohio. She is listed on FindAGrave as being Marette Thompson who died in 1851 and was the daughter of JS Thompson. I cannot find any info other than what is at findagrave.com that connects her with JS Thompson and his first wife, Margaret Bowdle. I have looked at the picture of the grave stone and could it possibly be that she belongs to JS Thompson's father, also a James Thompson and his wife, since it appears the mother's name on the tombstone is in initials? JS and Margaret were married in 1858, which doesn't sync up with the grave info. Please let me know what you see there and know.

THanks

I have transferred your great-great-aunt, Matilda Huffine, to your care. I appreciate your promise of passing it on to closer relatives if need be. Thanks!

RE: Hollenback
Hi Tammy,
I do remember you and the help you gave me. I looked into Jacob G. Hollenbeck, but he doesn't belong to our family. I found the 1880 census record for his father. He, too, was b IN and he listed his father as born NY. They must be descendants of the very large Hollenbeck family of NY. DRAT! I sure would have liked to claim him. Thank you for remembering me.
