Bio and Links
Bio Photo For the past 25 years my passion has been genealogy research. I carry on the tradition of my dear cousin, Lana Lee Hamler Hollinger; who started the HAMLER genealogy research long before me, but passed away in 2002. I started with just my immediate family and it sort of grew from there. Today there are over 39 thousand people in my Ancestry.Com file. I also have used "Find A Grave" in my research. The beauty of this website is that it combines my love for genealogy with my need of exercise. I go to cemeteries, take pictures of headstones, then add them online.

** (I will gladly transfer any memorial should they be related to you. And in the rare case where someone is offended by a memorial being online, I would consider deleting it; if requested by a close family member). **

I suppose it was also due to my deep respect for those that came before us, that I began these efforts. When our forefathers came from other lands and states and entered the Ohio valley, there wasn't a Wal-Mart waiting for them. All they had was a covered wagon, a few tools, seed for planting, their families, and in most cases, a strong belief in God. On average each early family had 12 children, but lost 2 in infancy to diseases we now control with medication. They had to be a strong lot, to leave family and friends and venture into the unknown. In some cases they died young, and left us a history of their efforts.

I had to retire in 2009 due to health problems; but that freed me to work on my genealogy full time. I will research each person and add detail when possible, and I will connect family links when found. And as a Vietnam Veteran, I will add a flag memorial to all of those who served our country. Until our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ calls us home..... Happy Searching!

Joni Redman Davis
Nichols Family
Hi John! My name is Joni Redman Davis. I am the daughter of Jean Anne Nichols Redman. My mom was Dorothy Hamlers sister. I've been doing a bit of searching and don't seem to be able to find anything on Aunt Thelma and Uncle Lefty Lambert. Thelma was the oldest of the Nichols girls. Any idea where they are buried? I'd like to add them to my list. Thank you and thank you for all that you have done with the genealogy. So glad we had a good start from our cousin Lana!!!

Groveport Cemetery - Ray
Hello John,

I have submitted a change (edit) for Carol Anne Mayes in this cemetery. Her maiden name was Ray. I also provided her parents memorial links for editing.

If you were a relative, I would like to hear from you. I am not a close relative, but Carol was married to my first cousin, so she would have been a cousin-in-law if such a thing exists. Anyway, thank you for the work you do on find-a-grave. I wish you a lot of luck on your genealogy. It sounds like we've been working on genealogy about the same number of years. I only have about 12,000 in my database, but that seems like a lot of relatives to me.

Best wishes, and let me know about this family. Thanks,

Don Lee

Hello, could I please have ownership of Iva Irene Nestor (92109300)? She is my great-grandmother.

Thank you.

RE: Mary E. Howey Tabor
This leaves me embarrassed. I took a look at the headstone and it was for Leroy L. Tabor, not my great uncle.

Mary E. Howey Tabor
I was wondering if you could transfer over Mary's memorial to me. The number is: 92125125. She was the second wife of my maternal great uncle Leroy W. Tabor, who died in 1947. I've been trying to find out what happened to her for some time. I'm very happy to finally know what became of her.

Mary Jane Smith Gammon
Mrs. Gammon was my great-aunt and I would like to link her to her parents' graves. Would you be so kind as to transfer her memorial to me?
