RE: Re:nicholas thomas
Both the Genealogical Society and the Historical Society conducts paid research for those who are unable to travel to Vernon Co to conduct research. You might want to check their websites.

Finishing that half sentence...

Is there a Nicholas Thomas probate file in Vernon Co which might indicate he was buried here?

RE: Nancy
Have you use the two websites given in my bio for how to research Vernon County deaths? There is no "Jefferson Twp" in Vernon Co, which suggests that they were no longer living in Vernon Co. Is there a Nicholas Thomas probate file in Vernon Co which? Do you have any record that indicates they might be buried at Balltown Cemetery?

There is no marker for Sylvia where her grave should be. I took 3 photos of the site. Do you want me to post them?

I found the following census records on Ancestry.

1850 census Middlefield, geauga Co., Ohio
Sherman Foote 48 farmer born Mass
Margaret Foote 50 Mass
Elizabeth Foote 21 Mass
Lewis Foote 22 farmer Mass
Anson Foote 12 Ohio
Sylvia Tracy 84 New York

1860 census Middlefield, Geauga Co., Ohio
Enoch Alden 65 farmer Mass
Melinda Alden 59 New York
(should have been Lurinda)
Melissa 21 music teacher Ohio
Susan Alden ???? teacher Ohio
Edward Alden 17 Ohio
Sylvia Tracy 90 New York

next entry

Madison Thompson 30 farmer Ohio
Phebe Thompson 30 Ohio
Adelia Thompson 1 Ohio
Deborah Tracy 65 Mass

I did take photos of the markers for Sherman and Margaret Foote and will post them today or tomorrow.

I took a photo of Deborah's marker and had not found Sylvia's marker. Thanks to your last reply I now know exactly where Sylvia's marker will be if there is one. I may get to Middlefield next week if the weather cools off a bit.

Please understand this is A VOLUNTEER Site, as I have said to you previously in an email. I personally have photo request myself - some have been taken within hours of my request, yet I still have open ones that are almost 2 years in the waiting, and may never get filled.
However, I also know that Find A Grave member William Cole, did go and search for Sylvia Tracy and could not find it. Could she have a different surname?- did she remarry?
I would strongly suggest you contact Middlefield Cemetery directly and verify the location of burial.
Please if you have any further problems- please direct them to FindAGrave
PO Box 522107
Salt Lake City, UT 84152-2107 or email the staff- email addresses under FAQ.
As to the $5 that you paid- that was a volunteer payment on your part- to "sponsor" the memorial page so no advertisements would appear on the page. Again if you have further questions-please direct them to the management of FindAGrave.
I wish you luck.

Was Deborah Tracy's maiden name Woodward? If it was I have the picture and will put it up on the memorial. I did not find the marker for Sylvia but did find several other Tracy's I will look to see if those photos have been added.

yes I see you submitted a photo request- this is a
volunteer site- it might take some time- but hopefully soon, someone will fulfill your request- also-please remember- we are just coming into Spring/Summer-many cemeteries-are very hard to "walk" in winter and wet months. And I believe the credit card payment you are referring to-was you "sponsored" the memorial site- please if have any questions or problems- you need to contact FindAGrave- management staff.
