Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born and raised in central Indiana, am a graduate of Purdue University in engineering and Baldwin Wallace College with an MBA. I worked for a major instrumentation company as an engineer and in executive management and have traveled internationally to over 30 countries. I currently live in Northeast Ohio near the Pennsylvania border. My wife and I have 2 children, 6 grandchildren and one great grand child. I started my genealogy interest at age of 16 by tramping through grave yards and dusting off old record books in county offices and churches. For those of you who did not know about life before computers, that is how it was done. I do keep my family records on computer (Family Tree Maker) and do belong to a genealogy .com. Now retired and I still enjoy looking for the source documents, the only way to really prove lineage. I signed up as a volunteer to take pictures of grave stones as it is one way I can help people document and reconnect with their family history. Family names are Hinson, Schrader, Latta, Kivett, Scott, Lampe, Thompson, Hadley, Craven just to name a few.

Thank you Steve! I'm in Warren and have been to Maple Grove several times and have taken some photos too, but as I research more I found more relatives that I didn't know about. I too started at age 16, I too spent time walking cemeteries taking notes on the legal notepads, going to courthouses in Painesville, Jefferson, Warren, in Ohio and Meadville and Mercer in PA, and some of the books were quite heavy and of course dusty.

RE: Maple Grove Face Lift
Hi Steve, that's great news! such a lovely cemetery and I am glad to hear of the upgrade. I would be delighted to help out, but honestly, I am not the person who determines which photos get posted to a cemetery. I am just a contributor like you. The way that i got my photo included on the sight was to use the "Add a Photo to this Cemetery" button at the bottom of the Cemetery search page (scroll down under the photos showing). From there it goes to someone, i don't know who, who makes a decision about what photos to include. It may take a few days. I did not get a notification that they used my photo, but by checking back to the page i eventually saw it posted. Good Luck! diane

RE: Leta Mayfield
Hey Steve thanks for searching for me. Leta Hurst was my Grandfathers first wife who died just a few years after being married. Her death certificate said that she was buried in Dorset. I figured she was buried along with her parents Francis (Frank) and Edna Hurst. I guess it could be possible she doesn't have a stone or possibly plans changed at the last minute and she is buried in youngstown. I do appreciate your efforts.

RE: New Lyme Cemetery
I did not create the "New Lyme Cemetery" on findagrave so you might be right maybe New Lyme Cemetery maybe called something else now. Maybe I will just have to wait until the Ashtabula Genealogy completes their project to photograph all of the tombstones in Ashtabula County, Ohio. Thanks for your efforts in trying to locate it.
