RE: Jennings Byran Morris
I'm related to the Morris' through my dad's family:

Mary Edna Morris - Van Meter was my dad's mother. Grandma married Walter Everett Van Meter and had 3 children by the time she passed away in 1922 at the age of 26.

My dad and uncle were placed in an orphanage until they were 18 but I have no clue where my aunt stayed while she was growing up.

I don't believe I ever met any Morris relatives because my dad died in 1949 and we were placed in an orphanage for many years, therefore, we never didn't meet either side of the families.

You can find more info at Memorial# 21268270 Mary Edna's and click on the connections if you'd like to know more.

Do you have any picture of the Morris'?

John and Berta Lay
Sarah,

Glad that I made your day! Happy to do so. As soon as you create memorials for John and Berta Lay, let me know and I will add the pics that I took of their markers.

RE: Photoe Requests at Laurel IOOF Cemetery
Sarah,

I found the Morris' and the Lays today. They are not in Section K but actually in Section R. I found them by accident. I searched Section K for awile then gave up - and on my way out of the cemetery, a large marker caught my eye with Lay on it. Jacob and Joshephine are listed on one side and John and Bertha are on the other. I found Hazel and Jennings as I was walking over to see the marker for the section that the Lays were in. That was quite by accident!
I will post the photo's of Jacob and Joshephine's side of the marker but can't find any memorials on Findagrave for John and Bertha. I will just send that photo to you so you can make a memorial for them?

RE: Photoe Requests at Laurel IOOF Cemetery
Sarah,

I will be glad to go back to the cemetery and search section K for your family. Our weather right now is not that great. Rain predicted for the next couple of days. I will get back over there when the weather breaks. I'll be in touch.

Photoe Requests at Laurel IOOF Cemetery
Hi Hill,

I recently called the Laurel IOOF Cemetery to get the location of a great uncle who is buried there. I was redirected by an answering machine to call the caretaker of the cemetery at 513-315-3082. He was a little hard to get a hold of ( no voice mail) but I finally spoke to him and he said he has all of the records for the cemetery. As far as he knows, his set or records is the only one. Depending on the date of death, it seems that he does have a alphabetized list of those buried there. When I asked him for about 10 names from the photo request list for this cemetery, he said that was too many names for him to look up at one time. I was able to get the location of my great uncle and his wife and that was all. If you were to call him and give him the names and dates of death, he should be able to give you a section number and lot number that will make it so much easier for me to find them and take pictures. You can either post the section/lot numbers with your current requests or just send them directly to me on this site. My office is 5 minutes from this cemetery and, weather permitting, I will get photos posted as quickly as possible.
Thanks!
Jenny E.
