Incorrect Info
I have just recently joined Ancestry and was adding info and came across my Aunts Headstone. It is in Lake Park Cememtry, Boardman, Ohio. The info you have on the Find A Grave site is wrong. You have her name as Sarah F Graines Bott. Graines is not any part of her name. She was married twice, Bott was one of her names and Rose was her other married name. The reason I know this, because this is my Mothers sister. Just wanted to let you know. Not sure that I can do the corrections, so I contaced you. Also, her Madien name was Grapes. Just thought I'd throw that in there, I'm having a blast doing this. I don't know why I waited so long. Well, thanks for reading and have a nice day.

Ok, sorry for bothering you. Did you try turning the other memorial page to F-A-G? They may be able to help out since you are family. Merry Christmas!

Hi Howard-

Thanks for updating Ruth's memorial so quickly to link her with her mom! Thanks also for adding her obit. It certainly helps when looking for information for the rest of the family.

Thanks again!

All the best,

Hello Howard-

Thanks so much for connecting Ruth with her dad. I actually have just found her mom's burial record as well and will be creating a memorial for her shortly so I will probably be seeking another link in the near future! I was very happy to find Ruth's memorial already on findagrave and appreciate your efforts in creating and updating it.

Thank you too for the obit for Royal. It's always great to have additional information!

All the best,

Do you have pictures of the Gillner's buried along side of Pearl? There is a Herman and a Wendell. If there is a connection and you need photos, I have those too.

Wardle in Corner House Cemetery
Hello. I wanted to share that while taking pictures today of the Wardle's, there is a stone right next to theirs that says son.. Solomon Wardle 1897-1925 I didn't want to assume but the stone is the exact as George and Ida's. If it is indeed a relative, I did take a photo of the stone as well. Let me know.

Christian Good
The stone does look like it might say 1840 rather than 1846. Christian did not leave a will but his wife did, and she named nine children.

Immigrant Christian Good of Brecknock Twp. (1713-1757, son of immigrant Peter) had four grandsons named Christian Good. They were:
1. Christian (1771-1843) son of John (1733-1792) 2. Christian [whom I believe is the one in Ohio] son of Peter (1740-1807)
3. Christian (1779-1838) son of (Christian (1742-1812)
4. Christian (1778-1853) son of Jacob (1744-1812).
All of these have been proven by wills, deeds, etc. I have two documents related to Peter's estate (d. 1807) which mention a son Christian. He was still living in PA when his mother died in 1825 but apparently moved to Ohio within the next 10 years. The History of Mahoning County says his son Samuel moved to Ohio and he followed a year later.
Since the other three Christians (all in Brecknock Twp.) have been positively identified, the process of elimination points to the Christian in Ohio being the son of Peter. I was hoping to find something that would say that in black and white. Although you have not found anything which does that, neither have you found anything which proves him to be someone else. It sure would help us if they would have used a little more imagination in naming their kids. Four Christian Goods in the same township in the same age group!
Thanks for all your efforts. It always helps to confer with someone who knows the territory.

RE: David Weaver # 31140336
Do you know anything about Christian and Margaret Good buried at North Lima Mennonite? #50922232
They are the reason I'm stomping around in Mahoney County.
She was Margaret Schneder, daughter of Christian Schneder. His will mentions his son-in-law, Christian Good. (Lancaster County will O-243)I think his father was Peter Good of Brecknock Twp. and am trying to find something to confirm that.
Any insight will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you!

(Christian's son Samuel married Anna Weaver, sister of David Weaver)

RE: David Weaver # 31140336
The Mennonite names in your line are not found among Mennonites here in Pennsylvania. They must come from somewhere else.
This Weaver line was transplanted from Lancaster County, Pa. where participation in the military was strictly forbidden by Mennonites, and I think they took that belief with them.
David was a deacon in the Mennonite church. In 1872, he and 16 other families followed Jacob Wisler to establish the Old Order Mennonites in order to maintain the German language and other old customs. If he was that strong on the German language and other old customs, I find it difficult to believe he would have been in the military.
There are 99 stripes of Mennonites in America and some may look the other way, but in our church we maintain the historic Anabaptist doctrine of nonresistance. Joining the military is denying the faith and anyone who joins the military promptly loses his church membership. I have seen that happen only once in my lifetime. The young people just don't do it. My husband served two years of alternate service in a hospital when he was drafted during the Vietnam War. I'm saying all this to explain why it is offensive to us to be identified as a veteran of war.
I suppose there is a chance David was a renegade, repented, and returned to the church. I hope you can resolve this issue.

Are you certain this is the David Weaver who was in the Mexican War? He came from a long line of Mennonites who did not participate in the military. David was a deacon in the Mennonite church and it seems very unlikely he would have fought in the Mexican War, or another war.

James S May #155681444
I have some information. I will go out and photograph what is there when it's just a little warmer but I figured I'd share what I have found as of now.

You are quite welcome. My husbands great aunts are buried in the same cemetery and we still have family up there. I check cemeteries before I head that way for requests.

Also, I noticed your bio discussed your memberships in the ti-county area in Ohio as well as in Lisbon. Did you live in Columbiana County? I live and work in the county, as well.

RE: Julia Elizabeth Coombs
Hi Howard,
Unfortunately, I took a photo of Julia Coombs' stone and thought the information was correct but when I looked at the uploaded photo, I realized that I had photographed and uploaded the wrong Julia Coombs. My deepest apologies. I removed the photo so as not to confuse anyone but I couldn't find a way to reinstate your request on FG. Hopefully you can send a request again and someone can find the correct Julia Coombs in the plot area listed. I don't often pass this cemetery but will check the area again to see if I can find the other Julia. Again, my apologies.
