Bio and Links
I have being doing family genealogy since about 1975, mainly in my paternal line of Lydick (changed from Leydig/Leidig) as they migrated from Somerset Co., PA to Knox Co., OH, to Jefferson Co., IA, to Burt Co., NE. Other connected Lydick lines migrated to WV, OH, and some on to IA, KS, and MO. Other names in my genie files are Marcoe, Giltner, Holiday, Carpenter, Lybarger, Shafer, Baker, Boyer, Dunlap, Emrick/Emerick, Holiday, Kennell, Welker, to name a few.

Glad to help in any way that I can.

Send me SAC's, and I'll make the transfers to you.

Another Strong in Blair:Olga Della
You are welcome! Also, we added photos for Olga Della Strong and Hulda Mae Little. They might simply have been good friends, or possibly sisters-in-law.
It was so funny today in a local fast food restaurant: 2 old ladies were visiting about finances, and their voices carried clearly: "And don't let anybody tell you that cremation is cheap!"

RE: Strongs buried in Blair in the 1930's
I will have the pictures downloaded soon--thought I would right then but MrB hasn't transferred them yet to my computer. He sorts and labels them and then brings his flashdrive here :) We work together for pictures, which is nice not only for finding, but also for providing crucial shade or light when needed, and so there can be 2 sets of eyes in reading faded inscriptions.

Strongs buried in Blair in the 1930's
We did search for (and find) the plot locations you requested. However, there are no stones visible. This sometimes happened, especially in the Depression times, because the family put up wooden crosses, which did not last over time. I am sorry. Occasionally families do want to put up some sort of memorials: there can be inexpensive but permanent ones that are possible. I have seen very old markers made of concrete with the names and dates scratched in, or outlined in pebbles, or even metal ones, with nail-holes punched in for the names. These markers have lasted since the mid-1800's. But wooden ones usually don't. Our flowers are estimates of the locations--if you would wish to erect permanent ones, it would be good to contact the cemetery office for precise locations. I am sorry.

If they turn up somewhere in my computer where they don't belong, will get back in touch! :)

Hi! Thought I had saved the photos, but cannot find them. Put in a new photo request for Leah; Dennis already had one.

Cheers!

RE: Leah Leydig & Dennis Leydig
Hi! The photos are not mine. The person who took them has not replied. Suggest you click the Photo Request button and ask for new ones.

Thanx!

Hi! Deleted my memorials. Saved the photos to my computer. Wrote to the people who took the photo, asking permission to copy them back into your memorials. You can now transfer them to the correct Cemetery (Lebanon). Let me know, so I can copy the gravephotos back in as soon as I receive the approvals.

:)
CHEERS!

Earlywine Cemetery
Hi Boyd. Long time no speak! I am planning a trip to Marshall County in late May or early June. Since there are no photos for these burials, I will try to find the cemetery and take some. Your Lydick memorial is fairly old, but I will try to find it. Regards Eleanor Gibson
