Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am crazy about the zinc monuments that were made by "Monumental Bronze" in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Currently, I am trying to spot as many as I can at the cemeteries in our part of the state!

We don't have family in Central Ohio, so we are enjoying doing local genealogy for the connection. I am currently researching the Swetland family (mainly from Morrow and Logan Counties, Ohio).

I have also spent years studying the French Resistance during WWII and am currently trying to locate and create memorials for many Resistance members.

Ernest Swinburn--Columbia Cemetery
I walked the entire cemetery and could not find a marker or headstone for Ernest. There are many old broken or illegible headstones for this cemetery. Please consider removing your request.

Hi, my name is Damon and I did a photo request for Travis Hodges and there was a marker of his parents. I cleaned it up and took a photo. Would you like me to post it on Travis memorial or if you want to make a memorial for them. Just let me know.

RE: Eleanore Jane & Walter Garner, Grove Cemetery, Kenton, Ohio
Done! I don't know why I didn't do that in the first place. I usually do post to couples but I missed on them. Ellen Headington

Thanks for the info about her, my dad's first cousin. A oincidence, I went to Centre College, where she was hopitalized. As a young person, we used to visit her in Louisville.

Thank you

RE: Carl Swetland Friel
I am indeed a relative of Carl Swetland Friel. He was my paternal grandfather. I would love to help you out in your search! I will gather some information for you, and have LOTS of photographs of him. How are you related to him?

I am at work now, but will begin pulling information for you this evening. I look forward to additional correspondence with you.
