RE: Rineharts.
I had a blessed Thanksgiving and hope that you all did as well. I do know where Tucker road intersects with 229 and have driven that stretch many times. Funny, I always felt a connection to that area! I will indeed contact Stan! This is AWESOME! Thanks again for everything! Here is a wish for a Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year from my son Neal and I!
Take care,
Cousin Mike.

I just wanted to thank you for your thoughtful and most informative correspondence. How wonderful! I was amazed by Grandfather Christian's bookkeeping to begin with! I have also read and re-read the bios and the rest of the info as well. I need to get new glasses ( it's been 6 years!) before I attempt the deed information though!
The picture of the family reunion on 229 was very touching. I will drive out there as soon as I have a chance and see if I can find that house.
Many blessings!
Cousin Mike Simmons.

RE: The Rineharts.
WOW! This is all very exciting! Thank you so much for everything! I think i will ask to have Gpa Johns' memorial transferred to me! I also love the idea of having our ancestors on that list. The more I read about them, the more I realize what an impact they had!
Many Blessings!
Cousin Mike!

RE: The Rineharts.
Oh, my goodness, HI!
I am thrilled to meet another descendant! I am descended from Christian's son John. For some reason he is not listed as a child on the findagrave memorial for Christian. However, I have records from a project one of my aunts did using Mormon data and other sources that links the two. I have also found the links on rootsweb. He married a Harriet Nye. Their son George married a Coe. Their daughter Myrtle married my great grandfather Alva Gantt. I would love to accept your offer RE; info. It could be sent to me here, or via snail mail to: 31 Willis St., Centerburg, Ohio 43011. I would gladly reimburse for postage.
Mike Simmons.

The Rineharts.
I just wanted to say hello and thank you for your work. I am descended from Christian Rinehart and am part of the family that stayed in Centerburg. I have been looking into them for quite a while and I love learning more about the Rineharts. What an awesome family!

Gladys & Ora Scott
Dear Nancy and Bill, first I would like to thank you for taken the time to build your records. Gladys Rinehart and Ore Scott are my grandparents. I wanted to ask you if you transfer over the management of their records 86730635 & 86730957. My mother Betty Stumbaugh pass away in 2000, I had gone to Gladys grave site only once back in the 60’s when I was a little boy. It took me 14 years to write my mother’s memorial, I just couldn’t bring myself to write about her until now. I was going to start and put her parents and other family members in when I came across your records. My mother had never told me about her mother, Gladys had pass away in 1960 on my birthday June 3 (1957). I guess she thought it would upset me; it touches me to know that her Love would reach me now after so many years later; I had not known this until I came across your records.
Thanks to your kindness, you made my day.
