I'll definitely transfer all memorials to you. Please send me the Find A Grave #s and I'll initiate the transfer.

I'm sorry, but I do not know anything about the Zerkle/Zirkle family. I live just down the road from this cemetery, and I do know that she is buried in a small row with the rest of the Shaffers who are buried there. I have photos of their stones if you wish to request them.
From what you have told me, it certainly sounds like this is the same woman! How exciting!
If you think this is the right one, let me know & I will add her maiden name and any other info or links you think is important.
Have you contacted Sandi Koscak? She is a great Champaign Co Genealogist. I checked her website and didn't find anything on this Shaffer/Zirkle family, but that doesn't mean that she might not have other sources not online. I highly recommend contacting her to see what she has to say. Her email is:

Glad you were able to enjoy the trip down memory lane! You're right about that being a beautiful church, and I hope to go by there some day myself if my travels take me in that direction, or at least close by.
I think the photos you took are fine, so don't worry about the Picasa link at this time.
Thank you for your offer to go back by some other time for the missing headstones. Ann (Ross) Hopkins is the direct family link (she's one of the missing headstones) but it sure is great to find the rest of her family.
Thank you again for your time. I've been out a few times on volunteer photo shoots myself; it's great isn't it?
Thank you! I'm very grateful for you taking the time to head out to Lancaster and get the grave photos of the Ross/Hopkins side of my family, and so quickly!
Welcome to Find-A-Grave!

Oh, what a sweet and kind note you just sent me. I am so happy to have been able to provide those photos for you. Yes, please visit Springfield and Oak Ridge one day. It's a beautiful historic cemetery and one that I love to visit. Let me know if there's anything I can do for you in the future!
