Bio and Links
As a child my mother took me with her to many funeral and we also just went to visit the graves of family members when we traveled, so graves have always just been a very natural part of life. That and you can learn so much about the history of a place through the graves you find there.

I look forward to taking my camera out and being able to contribute. It was so bizarre to be able to easily find the Downing Cemetery, as my mother always said she had to get lost first before she could find it.

Rickley Genealogy
Dear Susan,

I am wondering if your are related to my husband's family. They used to spell the name Rickley, Richley, Rickly and Reichley. I am looking for information on his great-great Paternal grandfather John Reichley. In his obituary it was listed as Rickley and mentioned he came here with his brothers originally from Germany but didn't list brothers. He came to Hancock Co. Ohio from Fairfield, Co. in 1850 with Jacob Reichley and Hannah Rugh. Jacob Reichley and Hannah didn't have children but John was nineteen and a Samuel was listed with them. Samuel was twelve at the time. I don't know what happened to Samuel. There was a Samuel Rickly that lived in Bluffton, Ohio but don't know if it is the right one. In 1860 Census Samuel was gone from area. John Reichley married a Amelea Rosina Fenstermaker and had seven children. I have a picture of a Reichley Reunion but not all identified and don't know the location the picture was taken. There to be a Reichley, Fenstermaker, Benner Reunion held in Ohio. Do you have a picture of this Catherine Rickley. I have a picture of Jacob and Hannah (Rugh) Reichley. I would be interested in any family information.

RE: Maj. Downing.
Yes, this is me. I seriously doubt that it is a picture of his son. Why would whoever put this together put a picture of a child on the listing for the parent? Also the format of the pictures are that of the 1880-1900 time frame, not the 1840-50s the quality of the 1840-50s was nowhere as good as these two are...

Joseph Wells
Hello family. Joseph Wells is my 4th great grand father as well. I am from the Heiby/Wells line of Fort recovery Ohio. Not many Heiby and wells left. My mother was Mary Ann Heiby daughter of Walter Ray and Mary Leatha Wells.
Were cousins?

RE: Thanks for all the Wells information
Hi, Susan--
You're welcome for the Wells information! My father and my husband both have deep family roots in Licking County, Ohio, so we both have Wells connections--mine by direct blood descent and his by marriage into his various lines. Your great-grandfather Charlie Wells was little brother to my great-great-grandmother Mandy Wells Lucas. That makes us third cousins once removed! It's nice to meet a new cousin!

Mandy and her husband J.R. went out to Missouri with Mandy's parents and most of her other siblings (my great-grandfather Odie Lucas was born there), but apparently their farm failed, so they returned to the land they owned in Licking County, Ohio and turned it into a very successful farm. Lucky for me, since Odie met and married a local Licking County girl, from whom I am descended!

I will try to contact you through your direct email soon and maybe we can swap additional information!
