Would you mind emailing me pics of the vases John Lessel painted so I can include it in my "memories" tab for him ? I'd sure appreciate it. Thanks.

Just wanted you to know that I found where his wife and daughter Clara Bell were buried and created memorials.

Sorry about that!

I sent you a correction to change Martin to her maiden name. It is listed as her middle name.

You're very welcome, Ken. And if someone wants to maintain Harold's memorial, feel free to request it via the Edit tab. I only put it up as a place to hold the photo to start with; but it really should be maintained by family!

More info - Mine was born in Missouri and her maiden name was Weiss.

I don't believe this is the same person. The cemetery/mortuary record says that "my" Vera died in Mission Viejo and is buried in Inglewood. The name must be a coincidence. I can check again, in person, the next time I'm there.

Fairy Light Strickler
My family is from Crawford Co Ohio for several generations. Am presently doing research in history of Strickler , Light, and Bittekofer families. One of my cousins married into Striker family.
You created entry for my mother Fairy Light, but married name you submitted is correctly spelled Strickler. She is buried in Memorial Burial Park in Wheelersburg, Ohio. Died in 1986.
Thank you for your work.

I would like to be able to read the obituary for him. The site will not make this larger. Did you get this from a library? It also has a picture with it. Thank you so much for your help.

RE: Lawrence Schell/Shill #5788788
I want to thank you for going to the cemetery and checking on my family. The photos were great. Joseph's stone was leaning up against his mother Elizabeth's when I was there in 2001. Guess it fell and busted. At least I got a photo of it before it broke. Lawrence was still a little readable but not now. Elizabeth's headstone still looks good.
I saw your postings for the Manning's as well. They are connected by marriage to one of Lawrence's sons. Its been a long time since I was able to go to the cemetery. I hope one day to go back. Good virtual cemetery for our vets.

Thank you. I will definitely check out your Civil War memorials. Lawrence Shill had 7 grandsons in the civil war that I know for sure. One buried in 2 buried in Ohio and the rest Indiana and Iowa. The Mannings are next to the Shills and they are related by marriage. Since I am so far now, I can't make a weekend trip to Dayton as I use too. Shared a pitcher of beer with your Dragons once at Charleys. I was so upset when I read that about the destruction. I have seen some destroyed by Nature but never deliberate. So senseless. Do you know if they can make a copy of the cemetery cards for the plots? I remember the first trip going to a business down the road and looking up Lawrence Schell. I didn't go back to see others that may be there with no headstone. Was a surprise to see two of his children there as well. Thanks again.

Lawrence and Elizabeth Shill
Thank you for adding my 4x great grandparents. But LA had added them back in 2009. They are listed as Schell/Shill. I took photos of their graves in 2001 and posted them. My big concern is that they are still standing. They are in Lot 130. There are other family members there as well. I just saw the horrific damage done to the stones at Beavertown Cemetery.
Have a great day.

Hi Ken,
Thanks for creating a page for Obediah MUNNELL. Good to know that either he was buried or has a cenotaph at Mansfield Cemetery. I have sent you by way of Edit a death date for him taken from his military records.

Looks great! Glad you were able to get out and photograph them while the flags and holders were up.
