Thanks for the information about burial records being lost in a fire. Once again, you are a great genealogy helper. You have helped me in the past.

RE: # 150968564
Colonel Robert Bay was the commanding officer of the 3rd Regiment of Ohio's Voluntary Militia... Captain George Richardson served under Colonel Bay... Godfrey Westhafer was George Richardson's Lieutenant... Most all of the War of 1812 General Index Cards for Ohio are listed by "Regiment" and not "Company", there are some that are listed by Company... You posted Godfrey's on his memorial...

Godfrey is indexed in the "Roster of Ohio Soldiers in the War of 1812" on page 85... The original Roster listing was on page 424...

The book is searchable but not every page is displayed as it is not free...

Godfrey is also index in the "United States Daughters of 1812 Online Index"...

In both of those places he is listed as having served in Captain George Richardson's Ohio Militia... In the "Roster of Ohio Soldiers in the War of 1812" Captain George Richardson's place of "Muster" is listed as unknown... Many of the men in his Company were from "lower" Tuscarawas County, this leads me to believe they mustered in Tuscarawas Count... If I had to make a bet I would say they mustered in Gnadenhutten...

Godfrey's year of death (1841) is listed in the book "Ohio Annals: Historic Events in the Tuscarawas and Muskingum Valleys" page 321... That book was published in 1876 and is free to download...

Hope this helps you out some... I may have a little more info on him but I would have to search all my War of 1812 bookmarks...

What relation is this person to you?

Christian Frederic Gunther/Ginther
Christian Frederic Gunther/Ginther migrated in 1796 to Bedford Co., PA then on April 07, 1806 he migrated to Gnadenhutten, Tuscarawas Co., OH, USA. Gnadenhutten, Tuscarawas Co., OH, USA. In 1813 Christian moved into Gnadenhutten and had a stroke after seven months suffering with rheumatism. He died on March 01, 1828 Gnadenhutten, Tuscarawas Co., OH, USA and is buried in the Gnadenhutten Moravian Church Cemetery, Tuscarawas Co., OH, USA.

** The above information is from the book titled "Peter Ginther's Family", page 8 written in 1938 by a Great-Great-Grand Daughter, Jennie Elizabeth Stewart. I have found her information to be quite accurate.

The first Gunther was King Gunther born 1304 and died 1349, a German King and youngest son of Henry VII. The name Ginther in this country has various spellings as do most names of German and Swiss origin. Gunther, Gunter, Gunder, Gonter, Ginther, Ginter, Ginder, and Guenther are all forms found in Pennsylvania church records all relating to the same families.

Billie Lee Alcott-Rammelsberg, my grandmother was a Ginther.

Mary Barbara Frey Ginther
Dear Rootsrcher,
Thank you for adding the cemetery plot site for Mary Barbara Frey Ginther who is buried in the Gnadenhutten Cemetery in Gnadenhutten, Ohio. She is one of my Grandmothers way back. Her parents were John Daniel Frey & Catherine Maria Grob. I added her plot to her site.
I am a descendant of Peter Ginther, who also buried in the same cemetery. He was a Revolutionary War Soldier.

Many Thanks,

Billie Lee

Kauffmans of Mifflin County, PA
I got the names and dates from "The Cemeteries of Mifflin County" published back in the mid-1970's. Many of the names were from local funeral homes or they were actually read at the cemeteries from the stones. I went to many of the cemeteries (I'm about finished with half the cemeteries) and photographed the entire cemetery and added new burials since the 70's. Any names that have no photo means I didn't find a marker. Many stones were missing, broken or so eroded I couldn't even "coax" a name or date from them. The books were hand-typed and there were many mistakes, typed over entries, etc. The names and/or dates could be wrong. As far as I know, I'm not related to any of the Kauffmans in Mifflin County. If you would like to manage your relatives, just ask through the edit tab at each memorial and I'll transfer.

Benjamine Ferrell 75059913
I know this is a long shot, but I noticed that you created the memorials for Benjamine Ferrell 75059913 and Sarah Ann (McNamee) Ferrell 75059701. They would be my 4x great grandparents. I see that you mentioned the names of both of their parents. I was wondering if you could tell me any more information about either of their parents (or at least where you found those names). I am trying to trace the following surnames: Ferrell, Buffington, McNamee, and Delaney. If you don't recall, I understand. As I said, I realize this is a long shot. Thanks so much!

RE: Memorial 139921693
I used to have a membership at the Dennison, OH Library. There was a book on cemeteries. I found her listed there in the Union Cemetery in Uhrichsville. No other information. You said one time that you got a listing of burials in free land in this cemetery. That is where you found Benjamin Robinson. Sarah Robinson was his sister not his aunt as I said in error before. I know nothing more about her. Just wondering if she is on that burial in free land listing?

Added by Sherlock on Sep 13, 2016 6:26 PM

RE: Memorial 139921693
Memorial number corrected. Sorry about that. Sarah Robinson was born in 1854 and the last record for her was in 1860 when she was 6 years old. I found a cemetery book in Dennison that shows a Sarah Robison buried in the Union Cemetery in Uhrichsville in 1905. It could be her if she never married. No details found. Maybe she is in the freeland part of the cemetery like her brother Benjamin? Thanks for your help.

Memorial 13921693
You helped me find the burial location for Benjamin R0binson in 2014. This memorial will show information you added. We talked about you looking for the burial of his aunt Sarah A. Robinson born in 1854 to Hiram Robinson in the same cemetery. She is the only great Robinson aunt I have not found. Perhaps you forgot. She may be in the free land part of this cemetery?

Thanks for the offer, but no need to send us the booklet. Please send us Edits on any of our memorials that need updated.
And thanks for your dedication on this! I've been to those graves in that cemetery and they needed the care and attention you are giving to them!
Kindest regards,

Plot/burial info uploads
I just noticed that you are uploading the burial notes as "graves". If you upload them as "other" then it won't be confusing to volunteers who are trying to help with headstone photos. They may think there is already photo of the headstone there.

Both look great! Did you do the quickrete on James Shivers, or was that the cemetery? Just curious.

I can only offer you a photo I took back in 2006, which will not show the date of death. My fingers are crossed I will be soon back at Mt. Calvary to finish up this photo transcription as well as update the Church's records for them.

I'm not able to attach the photo here, but see you have an email address, so I'll send it there. Hope it helps a bit.

re: Birneys
thanks for the plot book page. I added memorials for the others I think Marie is Emmet's first wife and H.M. Remington is her father or second husband and Della I think is Emmet and marie's daughter. Emmet remarried and buried in another cemetery, but maybe a memorial stone here. donna
