Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired librarian, who has done genealogy research for my family since 1996. Some of my ancestors are in 'historic' cemeteries, and I enjoy visiting these old graves. They lived in Colonial times in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Nova Scotia, Maine, South Carolina, and Georgia; and in the 19th century also in Ohio, Ontario, Michigan, Illinois, and territorial Florida. I would love to hear from distant cousins who share some of the same ancestors!

RE: Lawrence Edward Stone 133066592
Many thanks, Alva. I will gladly transfer the memorial # 133066592 to you if you'd like.

Hi, Mary- you added the record for my uncle Larry Stone about two years ago. I can tell you that the "E." middle initial was for "Edward," and that he was born June 20 1914 in Ashtabula, Ashtabula, Ohio. If you could add this information, that would be nice. Thanks, Alva T. Stone, Tallahassee FL

James Bayard Walker, M.D.
Many thanks for sending me the links to James Bayard Walker's parents; who are buried at Bath Presbyterian Church Cemetery. This will help his descendents with their family research. ~ with appreciation, George Gaston

Aunt Alva, Sorry, that I'm not able to answer all your questions. Being she is related to you, thought you would know all about her.

Mary Farley-Scheupel
I have finished photographing the entire cemetery grave markers that pre-date the year 2000. I did not find one for Mary and since the earliest cemetery records were destroyed by fire they have no idea where she is within the cemetery. Good luck.

RE: St. Rose Cemetery - Perrysburg, OH
I am glad you identified the other Scheupel. Do you want to create a memorial for her? If so, just submit a photo request when you are done so I will know it is ready and I can attach the photo. Thanks, Pamela

St. Rose Cemetery - Perrysburg, OH
Well, today I took another 300 photographs at the cemetery. I've now covered the oldest 3 sections and must say I was discouraged to not find more of the missing people like Bernard, since the other sections are a little more modern-dated. I have noticed a few concrete settings on the ground that are now missing their markers, due to time and age. I suspect the ones we are looking for may be unmarked. Anyway, it took me a week to upload the last section so maybe next weekend I will be able to progress ahead in photographing.
Now, I found Scheupel today. The marker is in German. I will upload Georg & Magdalena. Only 2 sides of the monument are etched. The second side has what appears to be Katherina with possible dates of 12/16/1859 to 02/03/1892. I will e-mail you the photos so you can check them out since I don't know what memorial to upload them for. Thanks, Pamela

RE: The Farley's in St. Rose
Interesting! I will have to check it out! There are a lot of Deimling members buried in this cemetery too and I noticed that some of them are missing from the website. And, their grave markers are so old as to be unreadable. Since the cemetery's early records were destroyed by fire, there is no way to tell who these folks are and it really bothers me! No one should just "disappear" like that. Maybe I will find something on them at the website you mentioned! Thanks!

RE: The Farley's in St. Rose
Well, despite the 35 degrees and winds around 20 mph, I ran over to the cemetery. I had to find the Farley's, in the hopes that some "missing" Farley's were buried near other family members. I found Frank, Mary, & Charles together, Helen B. buried with 2 of her children who were not on the cemetery's website (Helen M. & Bernard), plus Helena & her husband (who is also missing from the cemetery website) Edward. I also found Lucille (Farley) Nichter. I suspect I found Bernard buried beside Helen B. but if you look at her plot photo, you'll notice that the big monument is unreadable. I will play with the photo and try to enhance the writing. I could not locate Rose Dorothy based on the cemetery map. That just leaves John & Anna Farley and Frederick. I guess I'll have to walk the whole cemetery when it warms up.
