Bio Photo I have been a member for awhile but haven't been able to contribute. I will start responding again to photo requests. I am addicted to genealogy. The family surnames that I am searching are: Grants and Hollands from Georgia and South Carolina; Holtz and Fennel from Pennsylvania and Illinois; Carel/Carrol from Ohio and Kentucky; Walters from Austria and Johnson from Sweden. I am always happy to help others in their search for ancestors.

RE: Nathaniel Record Reed Sr
Hello, --- There were several William Reeds. Sarah Warren, a descendant of the Mayflower Pilgrim, Richard Warren, married a William Reed who was born in 1715. They were the parents of 9, according to the "Mayflower Families through Five Generations" reference, including William b. 1744. (It's a set of about 20 or more books on the descendants of the original Pilgrims.) ------ William Reed, b. 1744, married Alice Rickord / Reckord / Record. The name is spelled various ways, as is Reed / Read / Reid. Most genealogical libraries have the Mayflower Families reference books. There is also a Reed genealogy that I believe can be found on-line. ---- It's been a while since I worked on this.

Memorial# 94674103
I found the following notice and sent it to the manager for posting on Margaret's memorial. I hope that's okay . . .

Mrs. Service [sic], a former resident of Granville, [Illinois,] died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Edward McCabe in Spring Valley [Illinois] on January 14, 1911 at the advanced age of 84, interment at Arlington where the Services [sic] lived before coming to Granville. Mrs. Service [sic] had made her home with Mrs. McCabe the past six years.

I don't think we have communicated by e-mail before, but I could be wrong--I've had contact with so many here. If I ever run across anything about Elizabeth, I will pass it along.

RE: Memorial# 85964575
You are very welcome--I am glad that was of help to you. I don't know that I would be able to help find Minnie's mother, though. I suspect you are right that she could have re-married and probably did--life was hard back then. I suppose there is a chance she is buried next to Charles, without a gravestone. I will see if I can locate the obit for Minnie's husband for you and possibly one for Margaret Survis. The others died too long ago for me to locate. I'm sorry that I cannot scan the obituary for you. I can attempt to photograph it, though. I could e-mail that easily enough, if it turns out clearly. I don't have a tripod, so it might not turn out the greatest, but I will give it a try. Sometime this week, I will also try to re-take the photos of Minnie and Frank's gravestone. The photos won't be so dull, with some green grass in them.

I've posted info to the above memorial, which should provide clues to her parents. I think the obit possibly has her grandfather's initials reversed. If so, then I would suspect that her paternal grandfather is buried in Arlington, Illinois (where Minnie was born), and is memorial # 94674078 . In that case, memorial # 94674103 would be her paternal grandmother, and memorial # 94674207 might be her father. Memorial # 94674139 could be her aunt (I think the stone is really inscribed "Daughter of W. G. Survis," not "W. F.," as noted on the memorial). I hope this helps!

Sickenger in Gran Cem
Just an FYI--I did take photos of the Sickengers for you, in the Gran. Cem., but didn't know if you realized there are quite a few more buried there. The spelling is slightly different, though. It is "Sickinger." There are no other very close burials next to the two Sickenger graves.

RE: Louis Survis
Thanks! I always like to hear the stories behind the puzzles we always encounter. When I go to the library, I'll try to keep my eye out for things on him. I like doing this for people, especially when I'm at a stand still on my own family, which I'm at now! Sometimes by doing this, I find things that pertain to my own family history that I never would have found otherwise. Also, your cousin is more than welcome to contact me if they have anything else I can do in this situation. I'm an empty nester so it's fairly easy to find the time, I work in Findlay and can stop on my way home during the week. The library here has a wonderful genealogy department and a fellow that is very knowledgable in ways to find information.

RE: Louis Survis
Hi again! I just looked up Louis' death certificate, didn't know if you've seen it or not. His date of birth is unknown but his death date is October 21, 1919 at 11:45pm. He died of asthma (cardiac) as the certificate reads. He was in our county home, on the west edge of Findlay, which was the "old folks home" which was still in use until about 10 years ago as such but now has county offices in it. Poor fellow, it almost seems as if he was abandoned. The name of his parents is unknown, it says he was married but no mention of his wife on the certificate, it says her name is unknown also. Just curious, where did everyone go?
