Bio and Links
Bio Photo I began researching my own heritage in 1975 (ALL of my great-grandparents came to the US from various parts of Germany). In 1984 I began researching my husband Dave's ancestry and my "Great Obsession" was born. We love to assist others and we have taken several thousand gravestone photos which we upload to my personal Web pages. If you have Central Ohio (Franklin, Delaware, Fairfield, Licking, Madison, Pickaway, and Union counties) family or ancestors their gravestones might appear on my pages:

Please take a minute to visit the memorial page for our nephew, Sgt. Grant Arthur Wichmann. He paid the ultimate price in the War on Terrorism.

If I manage a memorial and it's not a member of our extended family I will be happy to transfer it. Please follow Find a Grave procedure when requesting a transfer.

Henry Shover--Woods_Reed Cemetery, Union Co., Ohio
Hi Ms. Gustafson:

A person referred me to you regarding the Woods-Reed Cemetery on Orchard Rd, Union Co., Ohio. There is a Henry Shover that is said to be buried there--Row 15, grave 14. He is a Revolutionary Soldier and I want to mark his grave. I did find a reference for his grave being there, but he is not listed in the Cemetery records I have found online. Do you know who is in charge of that cemetery and if there is any marker there for him? I did add him on find a grave today, but really would like to talk with someone who has more info of the cemetery. He came to the area in 1810 on land he received I guess for his services in the war. Any help is appreciated.

Robert Welsh
Hello Leona,

I believe the correct spelling of Robert's name to be actually WELSH and not Welch as given on the FindAGrave website. Robert is my my 3rd great uncle. I believe the record you may have for Robert WELSH is the correct one. Thank you for you time and I certainly appreciate all of your efforts.

Hello Leona,
Would you mind if I used your photo of the gravestone for Frank Preston Jay on my family tree, with attribution to you and Find a Grave? Thanks very much for your consideration. Gwen

Linda Smith
Feeble Minded Cemetery
Leona, I checked your website and did not find a relative listed that I believe may be buried at the Feeble Minded cemetery.
The name is Joseph J. Blenkhorn born abt. 1901.
Last known documentation of him is a 1920 census record in Cuyahoga Co.
Parents names Henry Z. and Lucy Cooley Blenkhorn from Dover, now Westlake,Ohio in Cuyahoga Co.
Joseph had a brother that was also at the institution for awhile by the name of Henry H. Blenkhorn.

Thank you,

Linda Smith

Linda Smith
York Cemetery
My name is Linda Smith and at one time I was a member of the Union Co. Genealogical Society. Today I went to York Cemetery to fulfill the requests that I had claimed. I was not very successful. I got on line and that is when I came across your website! Now I understand why you are able to fulfill the requests so efficiently! I am amazed! I have a lot to learn.
