|Bio and Links|
I was born in Marion, McDowell County, North Carolina, grew up in Georgia, and currently live in Northeast Ohio. I am very close to my Ohio roots, enjoy reminiscing about family and looking at old photos. Find-A-Grave is a wonderful place to see old photos, and read interesting things on people from "bygone eras".|
I have been working on cemeteries in both Trumbull & Geauga counties, and most recently, a little in Lake County, all in Northeast Ohio. This area of Ohio is part of the Connecticut Western Reserve. Many of the original settlers came from Connecticut; many on foot!
I am related to some of the oldest families in Geauga County, so part of my family fit this category, with a long history there, stretching back to 1816, some settling in Claridon Township, and later others in Huntsburg and Middlefield, so this area has been of interest to me, as well as neighboring Trumbull County, where my father was born and raised. I have developed an interest in Ashtabula County as well, which borders both of these counties, and many families that are either in Geauga or Trumbull are also in Ashtabula.
The main surnames I have an interest in because they are related to me directly, or because my family married into them, are:
WILMOT in Claridon, Geauga County, and Braceville and Bazetta (Cortland), Trumbull County.
HATCH in Mesopotamia & West Farmington, Trumbull.
ENSIGN in Claridon, Geauga, & Cortland, Johnston, & Mesopotamia, Trumbull.
PATCHIN in East Claridon and Middlefield, Geauga.
WHITE in Middlefield, Geauga.
MOFFETT (MOFFATT) in Claridon & Chardon, Geauga. and the Rock Creek area of Ashtabula County.
PINNEY in Claridon, Geauga, and Rock Creek, Ashtabula.
KELLOGG in Huntsburg, Geauga.
WOLCOTT in Claridon, Geauga, & West Farmington and Bristolville, Trumbull.
TAYLOR in Claridon, Geauga.
ALDERMAN in Huntsburg and Burton, Geauga, and Windsor, Ashtabula.
WARRINER in Claridon, Geauga
KING in Chardon, Geauga
A lot of the birth and death information I have been able to get online from Death Certificate Records at familysearch.org, which provides images of the actual Ohio Death Certificates from 1908-1953. This also gives women's maiden names, and their mothers' maiden names, etc, which is very helpful to those doing geneology and trying to trace their family.
Many of the records for Trumbull county came from "Trumbull County Cemetery Inscriptions 1800-1930", published 1983, compiled by the Trumbull County Chapter of the OGS. Others I obtained from walking the cemeteries.
I am currently working on burials in Geauga Co., Ohio, using Cemetery Records courtesy of Jeanette Grosvenor, Cemetery Sexton of Claridon Township, Geauga Co., Ohio.
For Geauga Co., the DODs on the Cemetery Records may differ slightly from the DODs found on the Death Certificates found at Familysearch.org. The death dates given in memorials I create are those appearing in the Cemetery Records, and some of those may indicate the date of burial, not the actual date of death. Also, most of the birth/death locations appearing in my Geauga Memorials are from death certificates at Familysearch.org. A few are from the Geauga Vital Records info compiled by Teeter Grosvenor. Others from other contributors are duly noted.
Also, at times, spelling of the same name appears a couple of different ways. For example, for the name "Gilmore", it appears as "Gilmore" and "Gillmore".
I have tried to enter the info into Find-A-Grave exactly as it appears on the Cemetery Records provided me by Jeanette Grosvenor. In my limited experience, I have found that Census Records, Death Certificates, etc. are not always spelled correctly, on the original document when they were originally written decades ago and even over a century ago, and subsequent transcriptions reflect how they were written originally. I apologize for any confusion in spelling.
Certain entries for Ashtabula County, such as Orwell, Windsor and Colebrook Township; records obtained from and used with permission of Mr. Andrew Davis, Director of Grand Valley Public Library, Orwell, Ohio.
Have just begun working on burials in Lake County, Ohio, (east of Cleveland), using Lake County Genealogy Societys Cemetery inscrption pages at rootsweb.com. I will do these as I have time.
If you would like a transfer of a memorial I have created, please don't hesitate to ask. I will be more than happy to transfer the memorial to you. If there are any corrections that need to be made (i.e. dates, locations, etc.), please let me know and I will gladly make these changes.
However, please do not ask me to add information that is copyrighted, such as might be obtained from an internet website, or historical volume or publication.
If you ask for a photo of a grave, a plot location would be appreciated. Where these have been made available on the records I have obtained info from, I have included these. These can usually be obtained by calling the cemetery and asking the people who work in the office, or the township where the cemetery is located, and talking to the trustees or the cemetery sexton. Thank you.

We had a conversation and connection before regarding Anna Gall, my husbands paternal grandmother in a Geauga County Cemetery. Unfortunatley when Dell decided to crash it took much with it.
Would you still be willing to transfer Anna's memorial to us?
