I joined Find-A-Grave to "pay forward" the help I have received from others.|
Most of the cemeteries, in Defiance and Williams County Ohio, have been read/walked and indexed. I would be willing to look up and send information if requested. I am most knowledgeable about the cemeteries in Farmer Twp. and Washington Twp., Defiance County; and for St. Joseph Twp., Springfield Twp. and Pulaski Twp., in Williams County.
OF INTEREST to others may be the link to the Williams County Public Library (WCPL) obituary index. Anyone who has died in the Williams County, Ohio area since 1870 is most likely on the index. Many Defiance County, Ohio obituaries were included in the Williams County newspapers. I suggest searching by using the last name only. Keep in mind the spellings may vary so try several options if you do not get results on the first search. If a name is listed more than once, it is because an obit was published in more than one local paper. Not all of the papers have been added, so check back often to see if there is a new entry for one of your Ancestors.
The obituary index direct link is
http://obits.mywcpl.org/ (updated 01-2013)
On this page will be information about who to contact for copies of the obits to be mailed to you.
The link to the WCPL library history and genealogy department is
http://www.mywcpl.org/local (updated 01-2013)
The above URL will have links to Williams and Defiance County Genealogy websites.

Hi Mary Joan,

|empressintern||Updated William Hageman's parents|
Hi Mary Joan,
I have updated William Hageman's parents as requested. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you in the future.
|Ann Stranman||RE: Margaret Kneringer|
You are welcome. I don't know if there's a book, per se, for "the County," but you might want to try to contact the cemetery and perhaps the sexton can assist you with getting the information you're seeking. The Geneva library has extensive Genealogy information available for the County and may be able to advise on the obituary question as to how and where you might be able to find it. To my knowledge, that's not something that's easily and readily available as far as online goes, but it may be accessible in various archives. The phone # for the Geneva Library is 440-466-4521. Best wishes to you in your efforts.
No, I'm not related to Coleman's and I do not know where C.P. Coleman is buried.
You can search De Kalb County cemeteries here.

You are so very welcome! We do what we can do. We know how important it is to find them as we're searching for our ancestors as well. Good luck in all your endeavors and if we could be of assistance in this area, feel free to let us know.

Andrew is my Great Great Great Grandfather on my paternal side, therefore my maiden name is Mavis.
Ancestry.com has been my biggest source of information since I have unfortunately no contact with my biological father and his father committed suicide long before I was born.
Find a Grave had been extremely helpful in my efforts as of late, and I really appreciate your support.
My Great Great Grandfather is George Robinson Mavis (brother of Andrew & Abraham). My Great Grandfather is William Henry Mavis (who married Daisy Frederici). I think this part of the family ended up being in Nebraska.
I will surely add the info you gave me to my tree. Much appreciated, and please send anything else you think may be helpful. Thank you, thank you!
Thank you for taking the photo, it made my day!
|Cathy Sexton||Sarah Boush Goldsmith|
My sister and I went back over there. Sarah is not mentioned on Isaac's memorial. There are other Goldsmith's which are newer. The only other old one is a Eunice A. Goldsmith. Can't read much of it...will take another trip over there to see if I can get a better picture and to photograph other Goldsmith's for you.
