Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Columbiana County in Northeastern Ohio. Since I started my family history research, I have been amazed at the unknown family members I have found so close to my home. I want to honor them by adding them to this site. Thank you to all who place flowers on their memorials. I am a member of the Columbiana County and Mahoning County Chapters of the Ohio Genealogical Society.

Researching: Felger, Naughton, Stanyard, Miller, Bailey, Lind, Lynn/Linn, Sherry, Cranston, Forney, Stallsmith, Hauptmann, Huch, Hull, Stump, VanFossan/VanFossen, Thoman, Summer(s), Baker, Hartje, & Rukenbrod (to name a few).

NOTE: I am working closely with my cousin, Joseph Chaplow, and some of my entries are his family. Preference on transfers will go to him.

I found this on the profile of another contributor: A fellow by the name of Banksey is credited with a quote. What he said goes something like this: You die twice. Once when you stop breathing... and a second time... later on... when your name is said for the last time.

PLEASE DO NOT USE MY PERSONAL PHOTOS. Any other use or republishing of them is not permitted. It is a violation of FindaGrave guidelines. If you have an interest in someone, please email me. However, you may copy any headstone picture I've added for your own family tree use. The exception would be using my photos when creating a duplicated FindaGrave memorial. This is not allowed and is against the guidelines. A notation that I was the photographer would be appreciated, if only to assist others who may want to contact me about family. I've received a lot of help in obtaining family headstone pictures from other researchers and want to pay it forward. Thank you.

Please check the cemetery before you make an entry to avoid duplications. I welcome any corrections to information I have entered. I try to be as accurate as possible, but sometimes receive conflicting information. Please don't be surprised, shocked, or outraged by an error. I'm human. Please use the suggest a correction tab on the individual memorial. It's easier for me that way.

I have absolutely no interest in numbers, so I usually transfer out-of-guidelines unless it's someone in my family or the requester does not transfer their own entries in that manner. I will only transfer my family members according to the guidelines. Just a reminder: Regarding transfers, please remember...just because you are related to someone doesn't mean someone else isn't. Please see F-A-G guidelines regarding transfers. *"The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it."

I ask you to remember that the members of this site are volunteers, both for entries and photo requests. They spend time and money to do this out of a love of the past, to memorialize those who have gone before, and in remembrance of beloved family members. It requires cooperation and teamwork. If you don't like to do these things, I respectfully ask that you choose another hobby.

***Please remember this precious child and his family: Camden Fairchild.***

***Please remember this young man, a Fallen Graver, who loved what he did and helped many people: Coady Hatlen. He is missed.***

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4

"Do not stand on my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the mornings hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave & cry;
I am not there, I did not die."
~Mary Frye

Scatter me not to the restless winds
Nor toss my ashes to the sea.
Remember now those years gone by
When loving gifts I gave to thee.
Remember now the happy times
The family ties are shared.
Don't leave my resting place unmarked
As though you never cared.
Deny me not one final gift
For all who came to see.
A simple lasting proof that says
I loved and you loved me.

RE: My mistake
I went to Southington today and to the Warren Library. I am wrong you are right. I trusted my big brother when he told me to change my grandpa's middle name to Finimore-it is fenimore per grave stone. You are correct-We also saw Kenneth Lynn- we did not have that stone done yet. I went to school with his son.
Have a great week.
God Bless Debbie

RE: Chauncey Seiter 86903892
Thank you for your patience as I am new at this and had never run into this particular problem before. And I learned something in the process! a win-win! I have removed the Greenlawn photo and posted it on the new site along with some others so I think we have everything as correct as is possible with the information currently available.

Hello, Debra,

I believe you are correct that the cemetery was changed for James after my memorial was created, inasmuch as the text states that the creator had no idea where James was interred. In any event, I deleted my bare-bones memorials for Martha and James after transferring the grave photos.

Thanks for the work you do. I am happy to make any edits you suggest, as I know they are well-researched.

Best regards,

Hi Debbie,
I made the additions for you. I see she is related along with a few others. I'll manage them if you're overloaded. If you want to pursue the family connections I'll be happy to send them on over.

Been a bitter winter for us. How are you holding up through it? I know you had some health issues. If I can do anything for you up here (not till Spring) I'll be happy to help.

Regards, Dianne

Whitehouse, William
East Palestine Ohio The listing of children is incomplete. My grandfather Lee Whitehouse was one of the children. He is listed in 1940 census for East Palestine along with my grandmother, my mother, my aunt Mary and my uncle William Lee Whitehouse.

My great-aunt Martha was the only one of my grandfather's siblings I knew.

My grandparents were divorced so i did not see my grandfather very much.

I am named after my uncle who was named after my great grandfather William who is the listing to which I refer.
