John Porter Cole
Hello Michael, I came across your information for John Porter Cole. I have a lot more info if you are interested, especially on his Civil War service. His parents are Attrusha and Aurelia Porter Cole, my 3G grandparents. John would be my 2G uncle. He wrote a ton of letters during the war which are in my family's possession. The Cole farm is still in my family, as is the house his brother Joseph built in 1886 in Norwalk, Ohio. I am working on transcribing his letters and hope to put them in booklet form someday.

Mervyn Hall
Armenella Hazlett Ramsey
Hello Michael,
I am Mervyn Hazlett Hall and I reside in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland. I have information relating to Armenella and Francis Ramsey and I am related to the former. I believe her father to be a brother of my great great grandfather Irvine Hazlett.

I was amazed to find a photograph of her on Find my grave and really appreciate this addition to my family tree.

If you have time then please contact me.

Yours in kinship,

Mt Zion Cemetery Pleasant Lake
Aha! I thought the problem was something of that sort. The VA has it right and the Find A Grave datbase has it wrong, in Angola. I wrote to at the same time I wrote to you so they may yet fix it in their database. Thanks for the reassurance.

Mt Zion Cemetery
Are the Mt Zion Cmetery in Angola and Pleasant Lake the same? I am creating a memorial for a former squadron mate, CAPT John Davis Libey, USN. The VA Locator puts him in Pleasant Lake but Find A Grave has Angola as the only Mt. Zion in Steuben County. The web pages for the two towns do not claify the issue but the web page for Mt Zion in either town seems to show the same location on the map for each.

Kope Cemetery
I received a request from someone for "Kope" Cemetery in Wayne County, OH. Everywhere I look, I can't find where it is. I find Indiana, but not Ohio. I could follow-up on the grave photos if I knew where it was! Since you took the photo of the cemetry, can you tell me where it is?

Headstone Photograph
Hello Michael,

Is it possible that you still have the original photgraph of Anna Catherine Lutz Mcentarfers (Find A Grave #41427735 ) headstone?
If so, would it be possible to get a uncropped copy (full resolution) copy of the photgraph?
Here is the weblink to the memorial....

Best Regards,

Jeff Timmons

I have been trying to ask you since last summer if you would please transfer your Vose memorials from Clark Cemetery (Steuben County, Indiana) to me. I am a descendant of George and Maria Vose. I made pages for them before I discovered yours. Thank you.
