RE: Judy Lynn Snyder White Newland and Eugene White
no, they are not related, but please either click on the edit tabs and send the transfer request or send us their memorial numbers or at least the cemetery as we have no idea where to look

RE: William Reeser
Hi Troy,
I'm wondering which William Reeser you are wondering about? One of them (William B. Reeser) is my 2nd great grandfather. If I remember correctly there are others named William I'm related to. I do have a lot of research on the family.
Hope to hear from you again

RE: John Thompson in Wayne County, Ohio
OK Troy, thanks, I've got it now. Looks like my John and James Thompson tree stops at about Maria Reaser and Peter Foust. Kathleen Andersen, the Reaser family authority, stops 2 generations past that point. I found several of your postings for Maria and family on That makes you the living authority on that branch !!! Congratulations.

If you ever have any questions feel free to write. A gal named Judy Cassidy researched an entire 452 page book on John Thompson's wife Hiley Dorland. She did it for the New York Genealogy Society along with Barbara Barth. I have multiple references to it posted in the gallery of Hiley Dorland in our tree. It was titled "The Dorland Enigma Solved".

RE: John Thompson in Wayne County, Ohio
Dear Troy, Let me clarify/detail my last message; John and Hiley (Dorland) Thompson had a daughter named Sarah Thompson born 1808. Sarah Thompson, as you mentioned, marries a fellow named Daniel Reaser. They chill in and around Defiance County, Ohio.

Daniel Reaser and Sarah (Thompson)Reaser then have a daughter named Eleanor Reaser (born 1838). That daughter, Granddaughter of John Thompson, Eleanor Reaser marries a guy named William Myers (born 1840). It was that marriage, Eleanor Reaser to William Myers, that I was guessing gave you your last name of Myers. I was looking 2 generations down from John and Hiley Thompson in search of the Myers connection. I was intentionally skipping over Sarah Thompson and Daniel Reaser in search of the Myers name. All part of the same line.

RE: John Thompson in Wayne County, Ohio
Way Cool Troy! I'm guessing your link is through William Myers (1840) and his wife Eleanor Reaser (1838). If that's the case then you're gonna find a ton of stuff on that line because of a gal I know who was doing heavy duty research of that family. Her name is Kathleen Reaser Anderson. She has a Reaser Family Tree at and her handle there is Kathleen Anderson. It shows that she is still active online having checked into her account just 4 days ago. Her Daniel Reaser married "our" Sarah Thompson, John Thompson's daughter.

Lot's of cool history in the John Thompson line and even more looking backwards through his wife Hiley Dorland. Original Dutch settlers of New York City. One of their Dutch homes was even disassembled, refurbished and put on permanent display in the Brooklyn Museum.

Emily Romanus Mavis
Hi Troy
I have sent an edit for Emily's birth and death dates as given in her obituary and Michigan death record.

I will also be sending edits to link family members. Once these links are completed you will be able to follow her line back to David Henry and Catherine Moore. David and Catherine were my 3rd great maternal grandparents on my mother's side.

I will email the obit and death information to you for your records.

I would be happy to link him to his parents. I just need the memorial numbers first. Please resubmit. Thanks.

Charles David Fogle
Hello Troy, I can't find were Charles is buried though his wife Sylvia Crawford is in Fairview Cemetery, Harrison Ohio. They were residing in Marion County Ohio on 1920 census. Most family trees have his father as John William Fogle and mother Lydianne Elizabeth Roberts though I don't know where they are buried. Might you know about Charles?

Sorry, this is one of those where as I am in the cemetery I take random photos and post. I do not have any information on him. KEnnetta

RE: Martha Dellenback
I believe, sir, that we have corresponded only once before about this matter. If you would check the photographs on the Auburn Mausoleum site, you would see that I was the the one that took the majority of them. I live in this community. If I am incorrect about the particular matter of the Crowl name, then I stand corrected. Ancestry did buy Find A Grave, but that does not change the rules or its primary purpose. It is not a genealogy site. It is, though, a genealogy tool. And, yes, I realize that these individuals were your 3X great grandparents. It still does not change the fact of how their surname is spelled on their crypts. Wishing you a blessed day!

Hello Troy. Forgive me for not getting back to you sooner. I just did a major sell, move and buy of a home and relocated to Washington State. Give me a little more time to get things in order here and I will most certainly get back to you. Thanks, Ben

RE: Mary Perrine
If you are referring to the Forney marriage, I really don't know much. Mary Corbitt Forney Perrine was my Great Aunt and unfortunately I do not have anyone still alive in that branch of the family that would be able to give me additional information.

RE: Ermie Miller Matson Habegger
Can you please send me the source for the obituary?

Added by SLGMSD on Jun 11, 2014 4:28 PM

RE: Ermie Miller Matson Habegger
FYI Troy:

Last Name
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.

That is why her last name is listed as Matson on her memorial page.

Graham and Helen Brott
Those were the dates in the cemetery list, so of course there could have been an error in transcription...if you enter Photo Requests someone will likely get pictures for you so you can determine the correct dates.

Naming Conventions on FindAGrave

If you have not already looked at the FindAGrave FAQs they are very helpful.

Here is the one on Naming conventions - it can get confusing when there is more than one marriage so FindAGrave states the surname should be as found on the tombstone with information regarding other surnames through marriage in the bio section. Hope you find this information helpful.

Last Name
Last Name as you would find it on the tombstone, if the interred had more than one marriage or other possible spellings please place this information in the bio and use the family links. Do not include honorary or other suffixes in the Last Name field.

Ermie E. Miller Matson
Also, her birth record lists her father as Joseph Miller and you state her father is Alva Monroe Miller.

Which is correct?

Added by SLGMSD on May 09, 2014 9:43 PM

Ermie E. Miller Matson
Find A Grave Memorial# 21286502

You state Alva Monroe Miller is her father, but her name is not listed as a surviving daughter:

....Other survivors include four daughters, Miss Mary Miller, Mrs. Raymond Clark of Waterloo and Mrs. Robert Paton and Mrs. Earl Chapman of Butler...

Added by SLGMSD on May 09, 2014 9:29 PM

Ermie Matson
Her nickname is NOT Miller. Her surname is NOT Habegger.

PLEASE examine your edits carefully before you submit them.

Please LOOK at her stone - her surname IS Matson.

I am not a member of the Hettinger family. I will be pleased to transfer them to you, however, please go to the individual memorials to request the transfer. Much easier for me to have the numbers to hand for transfer. Thank you!

Hi Troy! I have transferred all the Hettinger's to you. Happy searching! Pam
