Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Jeremy Millrood, I've been interested in genealogy and family research off and on since 2004. While I'm in Florida, all of my family is originally from Pennsylvania. A large portion, the Jackson's, Hanks, Stewart's and Oyler's were early settlers in the western part of Pennsylvania mostly around Fulton and Bedford counties. The other side, the Millrood's and Moskow's were late 19th early 20th century immigrants that came from Eastern Europe to America and settled in the Philadelphia area. I am looking to document this information for future generations.

RE: Head stone
You're very welcome. I checked my database and I have a Hiram Oyler born around 1861 in Johnstown. He was the son of George and Hester Oyler. George and Hester are buried at Grandview as well.

Of course as luck would have it, Hester does not have a headstone, but George does- probably due to the fact that he was issued a free one from the gov't for his Civil War service. He served in the same regiment as my GGG Grandfather. I posted a photo of George's headstone some time ago. Don't know if this is the same Hiram/George...

RE: Head stone
You're very welcome. Yes, they definitely do not have headstones. The photo shows the family plot that is empty. I have plot maps of each section of Grandview and I verified that the photo I took is indeed of the Oyler plot. You can see it is fairly large and after I started looking at the interment records, found out that there are actually quite a few people buried in there.

As for not having headstones, that is more common than what most people think, especially for older graves. I run across this all the time which can be frustrating when trying to verify death dates, ages, etc.

This link (below) will take you to Herman Oyler's on-line interment record on Grandview's website. If you click on the hyperlink (the "PR4") it will open up a map of the section. You'll find Herman's plot (Prospect 4, Lot 221) near the middle of that section.

What I did to make sure this was indeed Lot 221 was I checked what plot the people were buried in on either side of this unmarked plot. I made sure that I took the photo with the headstone showing in the lower corner for the person in the next plot (Wilhelmina Kuhne). Looking her lot # up, she is in plot 223. Doing this helps to pinpoint and verify unmarked graves, or else anyone can just take a photo of a grassy spot anywhere in the cemetery and claim it's the grave that's being sought after.

Hope this helps...!
