I am new to this site. It is so cool I came across it. John Fleming Keysor is my great-great grandpa. His son, Cloyd Keysor is my grandpa, Kyle Keysor's dad. Cloyd and his wife Choicy are buried in Greenwich Greenlawn Cemetary in Greenwich, Ohio, with baby Elmo. Kyle Keysor is buried in this cemetary too. My grandma is still alive. We have been checking out where they are buried, and wasn't sure where they all were. Thanks for the help!

Cora E Richie Keyser
I was wondering where you came up with the name Richie? Cora Ellen's last name was Gaines unless you know of a marriage that I do not know.

RE: William Keyser
Thanks for that link, Nathan. I read through the information on John, I can see now why he never showed up on Find A Grave, or burial listings...Looks like a "Family" cemetery sort of thing, and with no names on the stones.
Thanks Much :)

RE: William Keyser
Yeah, it appears you're correct, from what I can see. I'm also not finding William on any children listings for Charles (Carl) Keyser either. I'm just getting around to looking more closely into the Keyser line....They are fairly far back on my maternal side (about 200 years),where Elizabeth Keyser married Isaac Hammer. I was actually poking around to try to find the burial site of John 'Jack' Keyser, and came across William here. John's site might be Augusta or Page Counties, but I am unsure. Been going through the GENWEB cemetery listings without any luck.

William Harrison Keyser
Just for information....I came across a line for John Jackson "Jack" Keyser (1784-1847) & wife Mary "Polly" Cave (1785-1845) about 3 years ago on MyHeritage....His father, William Harrison Keyser parents were listed as...Charles Sebastian Keyser (1726-1778) & Mary Catherine Shelly (1730-1776)....His mother, Keziah Snead parents were listed as...John Snead, Jr. (1735) and Jane Winn (1742).

RE: Clark family
You're welcome. I'm visiting my sister in St. Marys, Ohio & thought I'd check if any cemeteries in the area had outstanding grave requests. I'm sorry you had to wait so long for the photos. Elm Grove is a well-maintained cemetery & easy to walk through. I wish more cemeteries in my area were as nice as Elm Grove :)

Keyser and Lorentz
OK, thank you. Dates are similar so I just wanted to be sure as I do not research Keyser in Maryland, just New York. Thanks for responding. Guess I will keep looking.

Keyser and Lorentz connection?

I am hoping you are connected to this family. Marshall Keyser had a daughter Alice Keyser, who in the 1910 census was rooming with a Carrie O LAWRENCE(I believe the correct spelling should be Lorentz. It states that Carrie is her Aunt, and they are both dressmakers. Alice is 32 and is stated as having one child, not living, and as single. Carrie is age 50, single, no children. They are both living in Hagerstown, Washington Co, MD in this census. Alice was b in VA with parents b in VA. Carrie was b in MD, and also parents b in MD.

In the 1920 census Carrie is living with a BEEK or BECK family as a private nurse. I cannot find her in the 1930 census. I am hoping that you might know of her as she is listed as the Aunt of Alice, but I cannot find the connection.

Hi Nathan and welcome to Find-a-Grave.
Did you forward a copy of your suggested corrections to edit? That particular contributor doesn't seem to respond to anyone's suggested corrections, so don't take it personally. This section of the FAQ explains how to proceed:
What if I suggest a correction and the contributor doesn't respond?

Hope this helps.

Spring Hill Cemetery
As you have probley seen there are alot of requests,that have not as yet gotten fullfilled and they may not either if the requestors dont call the Spring Hill office for the locations .
So you may have to delete the original request and do over by calling the Cemetery office for location of your familys interment for pic takers to actually get the pics for you.

I suggest you may have to call the Funeral Home Office and ask for the locations of any of your loved ones . And then put the location section in the request so the people who go to take pics wont have to go to the office to ask for the locations .

The last times I went to ask for locations , the people in the office there said, they would have to charge non family members 5 dollars to look up locations, because they were much too busy helping the family members of interments .
Good luck in your Ancestry searches.

Hi Nathan,

I added Norman Parents that you requested. Great pictures that you added to the meomorials. I would give my eye teeth to have pictures like that for my family. Did you find the Keysors'gravestones that were buried in Chief Blackfoot Cemetery? Someone said they looked for it but never found it. I thought I would try when it is warmer weather.

RE: Thanks!
Hi Nathan,
I went to look for any markers for either of the George Bells buried in Evergreen, but came up with no headstones. Sorry.

If you go to the Painseville city website and navigate to the cemeteries section, you can find a downloadable index of all the burials in Evergreen. I have found a few errors, mostly with spellings, but it is an excellent resource!

Here is the URL:{4FA2F01F-04A2-4CF5-BEE8-3D4DD154A66B}

RE: Silas Mallory
Thanks very much! I will add the info to Silas' memorial tomorrow.

RE: Silas Mallory
Hi! Yes, I did see Ewen and Silas--glad you added them. As to Ancestry, the reason I don't have a subscription is that their web pages do not load properly on my dinosaur-age dial-up, which is all that's available in this particular pinpoint of the world. I'm afraid I would not get much use out of your invitation, but many thanks. If you would like me to add the link to your tree for others, I would be glad to do so, but again, I know there will be those out there who will not be able to access it. I would prefer to write out his pedigree and add it to his memorial, as I do for all my entries for which I can find that info. Am I following you correctly?: "My" Silas was the son of Silas Ogden Mallory, Jr. and Mary Ann Travis. That Silas was the son of Silas Ogden Mallory, Sr, who was the son of the Ogden Mallory I see in the Rootsweb family trees? I appreciate your assistance in this.

I am sending along more info for Julia Harper Mallory.

name: Silas A. Mallory birth date: birthplace: Perry, O. age: spouse's name: Julia Harper spouse's birth date: 1885 spouse's birthplace: Geneva spouse's age: 23 event date: 19 Jul 1908 event place: Ashtabula County, Ohio father's name: Silas O. Mallory mother's name: Eva Peterson spouse's father's name: Robert J. Harper spouse's mother's name: Augusta Girard race: marital status: Single previous wife's name: spouse's race: spouse's marital status: Single spouse's previous husband's name: indexing project (batch) number: M86838-6 system origin: Ohio-VR gs film number: 0890270 reference id: 2:3L9T358

I also noticed the entry for the older Silas having married a Mary Hill in 1851. I presume this is Mary Ann Travis?
And I see Mary Mallory m. Clinton Curtiss in 1881 in Lake Co. I presume this is the same person for whom you requested the death cert.

name: Clinton Curtiss birth date: birthplace: age: spouse's name: Mary Mallory spouse's birth date: spouse's birthplace: spouse's age: event date: 05 Sep 1881 event place: Lake,Ohio father's name: mother's name: spouse's father's name: spouse's mother's name: race: marital status: previous wife's name: spouse's race: spouse's marital status: spouse's previous husband's name: indexing project (batch) number: M51442-3 system origin: Ohio-ODM gs film number: 0974917 V. F-G reference id:
If this is the same death cert, she is probably buried in Geneva, over the county line into Ashtabula, which explains why she doesn't appear in the Lake Co. records.

name: Mary Ann Curtiss gender: Female burial date: burial place: death date: 22 Jun 1889 death place: Geneva, Ashtabula, Ohio age: 74 birth date: 1815 birthplace: Geneva occupation: Housekeeper race: White marital status: Married spouse's name: father's name: father's birthplace: mother's name: mother's birthplace: indexing project (batch) number: B07081-4 system origin: Ohio-EASy gs film number: 890260 reference id: v 1 p 334

Silas Mallory
Hi! I would be happy to add the link to your Ancestry tree, if you would give it to me. Please know, though, that lots of folks in these tough economic times cannot afford an Ancestry subscription, so your tree would not be accessible to all unless it is also on Rootsweb. I didn't see them listed there. Perhaps you could supply me with the names of his parents and grandparents, so I can add it. I do see a much earlier Silas Mallory whose father was Ogden, so I am guessing these may be his ancestors. You have only to pass along any info for Silas Jr's ancestors you would like to see added (such as his father's service record). I would, of course, give you full credit for the info. I looked again to see if his mother Mary Ann was listed separately in the Lake Co. records, but the only Mary is Mary Kirk, George's wife. I agree with you that the Travers is probably a data entry mistake or transcription mistake.

RE: Silas Mallory
Yes, the name came from the death cert:

Name: Silas O. Mallory
Death date: 06 Sep 1927

Burial place: Perry, Ohio
Cemetery name:
Spouse's name: Eva Mallory
Father's name: Silas Mallory
Father's titles:
Father's birthplace: U
Mother's name: Mary Travers
Mother's titles:
Mother's birthplace: U
GSU film number: 1985117
Digital GS number: 4022021

Reference number: fn 52557
Collection: Ohio Deaths 1908-1953

All of Lake County's headstones were transcribed in a magnificent effort by that county's genealogical society and put on line. If Silas Sr and Mary Ann are buried in Lake Co., their headstones are either no longer readable, broken beyond recognition, or they never had any. Or they are buried elsewhere, in another county or state. I did search for them, but to no avail. I will make a note about the Travis/Travers name in Silas' memorial. Thanks!

Silas Mallory
Hi! Thank you for your interest in Silas. Unless he is your immediate, direct ancestor, I would prefer to keep him together with the research I have done on his wife's family. However, I am always delighted to add links or any info you may chose to pass along, and please feel free to add any photos you may have. As to his parents, I'm afraid I haven't found them yet. If you do, please let me know, and I will get them all linked.

Yep. I see you added the memorial for Margaret. I have posted the photo of her marker. She is buried next to Bert.

I also have pictures for Elzene and Alva, as well as Mary and Norman.

Download this pdf file. It is an extract of the Willoughby Independent. It has mention of several of your ancestors!

RE: Thanks!
There are many possibilities for the oldest cemetery in Painesville. Many have become extinct, some have been lost and others have moved. Here is a listing maintained by the Lake County Genealogical Society that has info on all Painesvile Township cemeteries. Lake County is pretty well documented and using this list of cemeteries might help you find relatives' graves. I find the Inscription Index to be especially helpful, even though incomplete.
