Bio and Links
I got interested in genealogy in the 1970's. My father-in-law was reminiscing about stories of his past and that of his relatives. One was telling of his great grandfather being shot and killed in a bank robbery in Columbus Grove Ohio 1891. So that began my journey of finding out about our ancestors. What a journey it has been like a giant puzzle and am always looking for the next piece. I have made many friends and even found a long lost cousin. My husband has put up with my wanting to visit and tramp through cemeteries.
Findagrave has been a great asset and one the few that is free. I have found many links using this in finding and linking ancestors. Also, the contributors are very gracious in transferring of linking family

RE: Albert Peters
I do not know - too long ago. I can delete the memorial if you think it is wrong - or relocate it to correct cemetery - your choice.

RE: Girtie West
Sorry, I don't know where the father is buried. I will ask my cousin Pat next time I talk with her but that will be a while; she lives in South Carolina. Girtie West was my mother's oldest brother, and I know that he was 18 years older than Mary. He lost his first wife Fannie to illness and his two oldest sons were killed in WWII. If you join Ancestry, you can probably get a lot of answers.
