RE: James Karr grave
Hey Jim - I haven't forgotten about you. Short of creating a memorial in every cemetery you think she may be buried in then requesting the photo, I'm not sure.

I asked your question to one of my friends that creates and posts a lot on find-a-grave. Her idea was to find someone who posts a lot of pics in that area and ask them to keep a heads up for Catherine's monument. This seems to be the best method. I know I am on a perpetual search for a few names in my own area for someone just like you who lives out of the area.

I believe the main issue you will have is the condition of the monuments/cemeteries in the western Jackson County area. If her monument exists it may be unreadable, disintegrated or grown over.

Cedar Cemetery is a good example of the conditions I'm speaking about. I don't know if you can tell from the pictures online, but that cemetery is roughly 2 acres with only a couple dozen monuments. There are remnants of other markers there that long ago have been destroyed along with sandstone rocks that I believe were used to 'mark' graves.

In the late 1800's there was a publishing company out of Pittsburgh that came to southern Ohio and produced a lot of biographical sketches on the early inhabitants (pioneers) of the region. I will try to find a copy online to see if any of the Armstrong's were highlighted.

The Armstrong family is still well established in that area and I personally know a few of them. So, in the next few days I will forward you their contact information. All the Armstrongs I've ever known are WONDERFUL people who would help anyone they could. You might get luck and find out that there's an old family Bible somewhere in the family that will help you out.

Talk to you soon - Jim

RE: James Karr grave
I know Benjamin is there because I just filled a photo request of his monument. There WAS a name on the back side of his monument but I cant remember the name. I have the photo at home. I remember his monument in particular because it only showed his date of birth.

Two other cemeteries that are close to Buckeye that have a lot of Armstrongs in them are Cedar Cemetery and Hanna Cemetery (also called Hannah and/or Wesley Cemetery).

RE: James Karr grave
Hi James -

The children already have memorials created and I have already posted the pictures to them.

On the monument are the following names: Matilda, Margaret and James (children of J & M Karr) on one panel (95603101, 95603084 & 95603041) and James (95603032) on the opposite panel of Ann's inscription. Just put the above numbers in the memorial search to see them.

The 2nd line of Margaret Ann's inscription says, "Wife of J. Karr".

Hope this helps - Jim

RE: Harry Armstrong's grave photo
I did not see any Schumacher nearby. However, per the records, (http://www.lib.rochester.edu/IN/RBSCP/Databases/IMAGES/MtHope/disc3/00000355.pdf), it looks like she should be in a different location. I will try to swing by Mt. Hope cemetary this week or next to take a look.
