|Bio and Links|
|I am currently the president of the Logan County Genealogical Society. We are working on redoing our cemetery books that were written in the early 1980's. If you are local and might be interested in walking and recording a cemetery, please contact me.|
I am involved in several volunteer activites as well as working part time. Please forgive me if I don't thank you immediately for filling one of my requests. But know that I am very grateful for everyone that takes the time to find and photograph one of my ancestors headstones. I know the time and work involved. If I have fulfilled a request for you and you thanked me, know that I enjoying walking the cemeteries, taking the photos and knowing that I am helping someone else research their family. I will acknowledge your thanks as soon as possible as I am working an emails from several months ago.
Many of the memorials I have set up are as a result of recording the cemeteries and not because they are related to me. If I have a memorial of your family member, ask and I will transfer it as long as they are not related to my husband or myself. Again, please give me time.
I would like to give a great big Thank You to the sextons of Greenwood Cemetery-Degraff, Fairview Cemetery-West Liberty, Bellefontaine Cemetery-Bellefontaine, and all the staff at Jennings-Farley Funeral Home/Highland Memorial Gardens-West Liberty. Because of these wonderful, helpful people, I have a fun time volunteering for Find-A-Grave. They all make my search for the requested headstones very simple.
Families I am researching include: Stayrook/Wren, Allison/Easton, Dawson/Wilson (from Canada) and Lindsey/Aiken.

|Dave Smith||RE: John Andrew Smith|
Yes, you have the family connections right. Margaret was John Smith's wife. She brought the Aiken (various spellings) into the Smith family.
The Aikens and the Smiths were fairly close neighbors in the Antrim area of northeast Guernsey County. In fact both families attended the Antrim Presbyterian Church. My wife and I have visited the area. We met with the treasurer of the church, Gary Hayes, as well as the cemetery sexton,last October. We were unable to fine the graves of Andrew and Jane Craig Smith, my 2nd great grandparents and parents of John Andrew Smith. Jane died in 1864 and Andrew died in 1875. As I'm sure you know the white sandstone used at that time for gravestones did not weather well. Gary Hayes did have records that they were buried in the church cemetery but none of us could locate the gravestones.
My sincere thank you for your efforts on my

Hi! Thanks so much for providing the image of Elizabeth Kirkpatrick's grave marker. I really appreciate it.
Thank you so much for the photos of John Dawson and Mary Dawson. I am not sure if I am related to these Logan County Dawsons or not. I am a descendant of Eudora W. Dawson who I have found in the 1860 and 1870 Census in Logan County in Bellefontaine. In part of my locality search, I came across the cemetery and started looking for the Dawson surname for potential clues to other relatives. Eudora W. Dawson's parents were I believe Jared Silas Dawson and Catharine L. Armstrong (still needs substantiation). I think Jared and Catharine may have had these other children with the name of Dawson besides Eudora: Robert A. Dawson, Jordina Dawson, Katherine F. Dawson, and Oella C. Dawson. I have Eudora W. Dawson marrying a Joseph K. Cooke in Logan County, Ohio. It sounds like you are much further along on your line than I am! Thank you ever so much for helping me try to find clues that may give me some potential leads about this family.

Many thanks for the photo of Lydia Johnston's gravestone in Miami Cemetery, Logan County, Ohio. Was hoping that this was our family's Lydia, but no such luck....however, hopefully one of her family will find her soon with the photo. Again, thank you for the photo!!! Sharen in Oklahoma
|Janet Aikin||Aikin Family in Logan County Ohio|
Yes indeed, the Aikin family is/was very 'hot' in Logan County and, yes, to my knowledge they are/were all related. I see the question of the burial site of Margaret Ann AIKIN Smith, wife of John A. Smith. I show them both to be buried in Northwood Cemetery in McArthur Twp. in Logan. My husband, John, is a direct descendant of Harold Dow & Dana HALL Aikin, s/o Dow & Jennie PIERSOL Aikin, s/o George Washington & Martha A. DOW Aikin, s/o George & Martha PATTON Aikin, s/o John & Jane THOMPSON (?) Aikin. John & Jane were the Aikin (EKEN at the time of immigration) from Ireland, coming with their four small children - William, George, Margaret, John. I have done extensive research on this family (families) and will share with anyone any information I may have. I hope I haven't repeated things already posted but which I didn't see. Smiles, Janet MITCHELL Aikin
