Johann & Catharina Fivecoat
I live 2 miles from the Christie Chapel Cemetery. I also just started taking pictures for Find A Grave. We have been over every headstone there at least 3 times and cannot find any one by the name of Fivecoat. From the research I have done on Ancestry I see they both died in Holmes county, Ohio. The is a Christy Chapel Cemetery in Holmes County. It would not make sense for them to be buried in Allen county if they lived and died in Holmes county. If you could edit your information it would save a lot of confusion for people doing research on them.
Thank you,

Samuel Brillhart
The entry for Samuel Brillhart and his wife says they are buried at Bairs Codorus Mennonite Cemetery but on the photo page it says it's from Bair's Mennonite Meeting House. These are not the same places.

Fivecoat questions

I noticed that you have some postings for Johann Michael Fivecoat and Catharina Elisabeth Fivecoat.

Your reference to them being from France and Maryland seems inconsistent with some other findagrave postings.

I've tried reaching out to the author, but I believe she may have passed away. It's curious that she has a grave picture and she mentions the Rizer's - whom Katherine Fivecoat had several children.

Do you know anything about this? Have you talked with Linda Randles before? Are these just different people?

Johann Fivecoat
I'm assuming you're the one who called the museum about your ancestor, since you said you left a picture request. The fact that I wasn't aware of the name in Allen County bothered me, so I checked on it. Your listing of his dying in Holmes County, as did his wife, clued me in. In that day, they wouldn't have been buried at the extreme other end of the state! Plus, there is a Christy Chapel Cemetery in Holmes County, which includes a listing for Michael Fivecoat and the dates match. I think that's where you'll find what you want.
Sorry I couldn't help you more.

Dora Jackson Rizor
Hello! I noticed your pictures of Dora Jackson Rizor and her family members. She is a distant cousin of mine. Would it be ok if I copied her picture and family members for my family tree? Thanks.

William Edward Bodily FAG memorial
It was great to see your memorials for the Bodilys and the group photo of William Bodily (father of William Edward Bodily) and his many sons. My grandfather is the first person standing on the left, Charles David Bodily. Love that photo and the one of Delilah and the daughters.
I'd love to hear from you and learn more about your connection to this family. Isn't Findagrave a wonderful resource as well as a fine method of meeting distant relatives? Sue
