Bio and Links
Bio Photo Started my own family tree years ago and now that my kids are grown I'm getting back into it. Love geocaching, photography, graveyards, & hiking. I've been to quite a few cemeteries here in Perry & surrounding counties. I love being able to help people find their ancestors & post photos for them.
I have no problem transferring as long as they're not in my direct line. Ancestors I'm researching are:
Jones, Rizer, Woltz, Fox, Pierce, Gobel, England, Dunnick/Dunnock/Dunnuch, Gorsuch, Tiller, Coleman, White, Mossburg, Hunter, Buzzard/Bussard/Bussert & Julien.

Husband's side: Lantz, Walker, Dunlap, Wherry, Abbott, & Beal.


Your tombstone stands among the rest
Neglected and alone
The name and date have both worn off
The weathered marble stone
It reaches out to all who care
It's now too late to mourn
You did not know that I'd exist
You died....and I was born
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone
Our hearts contract and beat a pulse
Entirely not our own
Dear ancestor, the place you filled
Some hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so
I wonder how you lived and loved
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this place
And come to visit you.

This memorial has been transferred to
you per your request. I photographed the entire cemetery and transcribed it for The US GenWeb Ohio Tombstone project. I am no relation to her but do have several relatives there including a 2nd great Grandfather Alanson Courtney, his son who died at Andersonville Prison is also buried there. The Courtneys are 1st Families oh Athens County and Ohio

RE: Joseph Hughes
That would be great if you would like to transfer. Joseph Hughes is my GGG grandfather. Thanks for making the edits!

Thanks for letting me know. I do have a Murphy GG grandmother, but this Murphy probably isn't one of my Murphy relatives or connected in any other way. As far as I know, none of the Murphys or other relatives on my mothers side of the family went to Ohio. I set up lots of memorials in Oak Grove Cemetery from the online cemetery transcript. Some have turned out to be my relatives on my father's Skinner and Allen branches. Sharon

Mary Katherine Nixon headstone
I just heard from someone at with these Nixons on her tree. I had told her that she was missing Mary Katherine among her listing of Jonathan & Amy Nixon's children. She was very delighted to learn about little Mary Katherine, whose marker you found and photographed. Mary Katherine had been completely unknown to her. Have a great Thanksgiving! Sharon
