Bio and Links

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, Allen, Mauller, Shepler, Fox, Pierce, Gobel, England, Green, Conn, Young, Harper, Dunnick/Dunnock/Dunnuch, Gorsuch, Landis, Butler, Tiller, Yontz, Coleman, White, Mossburg, Schultz, Shallenberger, Camby, Alden, Cole, Wroth, Lovelace, Hunter, Weber, Leininger, Stage, Wright, Buzzard/Bussard/Bussert, Julien......just to name a few.

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

RE: Rollins
TY so much! I checked the others Rollins (as her husband, my direct-line gfather, is not buried there) and believe they are mostly distant cousins who may be discovered in time to come by more direct-line relatives who may want them. So appreciate finding Sarah and also your efforts.

Dora Orndorf
I set up this memorial while helping an Allen branch cousin with his Orndorfs. I'll note on Dora's memorial that no headstone was found. Thanks! Sharon

Levi Strawn
I see that Kim Augustine has his memorial. I'm not sure how she connects. She's one of my Skinner branch cousins. My connection is through Levi's first wife, who was on my Allen tree. I'll let Kim know that you didn't find a headstone for Levi, which is a shame. He had such a nice headstone for his first wife, who's in a different cemetery. Sharon

Carmi Call
Thank you for trying to find Carmi Call's marker. If there ever was one, it's probably long gone.

Sarah Ellen (Powell) Connor
Sarah was on my Powell tree, but I'm not managing her memorial. I'll let the person managing her memorial know that no marker was found and make a note to check my copy of Ethel Albin's Powell genealogy to see if it mentions a different cemetery or any cemetery for Sarah. That's an unpublished genealogy that Ethel shared with those who had helped her research some of the Powells. It was recently put on a CD so as to become part of the genealogy collection at the New Lexington public library. Since it wasn't edited for publication, there are errors in the descendant data, which was partly what people gave Ethel as what they remembered, but Ethel's earlier research on the Powells in West Virginia was quite good.

William Shelton
I let Kathy Nelson, who's managing William's memorial now, know that you didn't find a headstone for him. I see that you didn't see one for his wife either. Thanks for letting me know. Sharon

Audra Jack
As with the missing Melva Decker headstone, I suspect that Audra didn't have a headstone. This one relates to my tree, so I think the information about Audra came from a cousin, but it appears that Richard Reynolds also found a death certificate placing little Audra in Greenlawn. Thank you for letting me know. I'll note on her memorial that no headstone was found. Sharon
