|I'm a 6th generation Oregonian. Currently live near Houston. Family History researcher since I was 13. My grandpa told us we were related to Queen Victoria and that hooked me in. However, that was a good family story only! |
Social History is a passion of mine. Tromping through cemeteries, digging in the dirt for arrowheads, old photos, etc. I'm just hooked!

You asked about dates on a grave marker in Aspen Grove. I took a number of photos in the past few days, but I presume you're referring to the Gearhart marker.
The marker is in deteriorating condition. A gravestone survey done in the late 1970's recorded:
Gearhart, Fannie H., wif of S.W., no dates
Amanda, dau of S.W. & F.M., no dates
I presume the S.W. & F.M. should be F.H.

Yes, you are confusing Israel (the son of Mercer) with Mercer's brother Israel (son of Samuel [and Israel's uncle] 1791-1827) who married Hannah Barnhart. Irena was indeed about 13 years or so older than her husband. Please let me know if I can provide any further clarification.
|kellybean||RE: sayres in Iowa and Oregon|
Hi, Thanks for your note. Yes, I am related to the Sayre family.
|Theresa Williams||RE: Gilletts in Sylvania Cemetery|
No relation to the Gilletts. Just record what is on their markers, take pictures and do research.
Have a wonderful day!
|Jeff Whitehead||RE: Gillett|
I have made all the changes per your request. I'm very happy that you were able to find this memorial. Most of what I add never makes it to a family member. Never would have thought that someone would find a relative without a first name, but that's why I add all the information I can find and try to always get pictures when I can. This cemetery is the very first cemetery for the city. Many of the headstones (yes just the headstones) where moved to Oak Grove Cemetery because of that area often flooding causing some parts to rise to the surface. Anyway if you would like me to transfer her to you I would be happy to do so.
|Janice Hall||RE: Also|
It absolutely is in Montgomery Co. I grew up there, therefore I know. The one listed on Find A Grave in Liberty Co. is a mistake.
|Janice Hall||RE: Fostoria Black Cemetery|
Please don't go to all that trouble. If you are not familar with this area it would be to difficult.
|Janice Hall||RE: Fostoria TX|
This cemetery is located at Fostoria, Texas located between Conroe and Cleveland right off of highway 105 in Montgomery Co. Its about 20 miles east of Conroe and about 8 miles west of Cleveland.
|Mike Cronk||RE: Newton|
You're very welcome! I'm only sorry that I didn't get the other Newtons, too. When I got there in the morning, the sun was coming out of the east and the Newton stones all face west. Maria's was tilted back so I was able to get a good shot. I came back after 12 to capture some of those west facing stones once the sun had climbed higher in the sky, only to fill my camera memory card after six more photos. Drat! I'm sure I'll be back down that way again in the not-too-distant future. I'll try to photograph the rest of my relatives and your Newtons, as well.
Grand Rapids, MI
I was putting photos on this site of another family named White. (At their request) and noticed Abner. You have no birth date listed, but the stone shows a birth year. Just thought you might want to correct this! (or not!)
