Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family lineage is through George Steel(e) who settled in Bedford County, PA. That lineage is George, Philip, George, George, Moses, Charles Edward and Paul Victor Steele. My family moved to Holmes Co, Ohio and Moses and many family members migrated to St. Joseph Co, Indiana where most of us have stayed in the general area. I have 3 grown children, 4 grandchildren and 4 step-grandchildren.

I am fairly new to deep genealogy but have always wanted to know who my family was.

I am willing to take photos of local cemeteries if requested. I like to take photos of the area where the interment is to give the viewer a little better sense of the tranquility of the cemetery. I am a member of Friends of Silverbrook, the city owned cemetery here in Niles. We do restoration work on many of the headstones at the cemetery. Take some time to visit the website.

RE: York
I appreciate the offer, but not needed. I went to Silverbrook to take pic's of my step mom's family, the Weimers. I noticed that that particular cemetery is hardly touched so I went through the Vet's section and most of section B, then started adding and taking pic's in Sec K and C. Next to one of the fam. members however was a Philema Personette, I took the picture of her stone, but it is not a good one due to the overgrowth. When I go back there to clean off ours I'll get that one too and get a better picture. I do hope to go back this week. I'll take a peek at your memorials tho and def let you know if I see any family! :)

RE: Dick family in Silverbrook
Thank you for the quick correction and the offer to transfer but I am not related. I just noticed your photo and thought I'd let you know.
Hope you're enjoying this warm summer day. Judi

Photo on wrong memorial
Sorry about previous message.

Would you please move your photo from 60183901 to 175921457? Same last name but different first names and husbands. Thanks, Judi

RE: Strong family
Hi Janet, Yes, I am the son of John Wesley Strong and of Florence I French Strong. I have been working on both sides thru Ancestry for several years and have my mothers' notes (along with those of several other family historians). Several days ago, I realized some did not have Find-A-Grave records or they were incomplete so I created an account and have been applying edits as needed and creating a few new accounts as I'm able to. I don't know that I want to administer a large volume of memorials though. I am comfortable letting you maintain the accounts but thank you for offering to transfer them.

RE: Roadblocks
Sounds great, thank you!! It def. gets hard sometimes when looking for information prior to computer use, seems as so many records were lost or destroyed. Currently, trying to compare sources, obits, death certificates, cemetery records to see what is actually accurate. haha, very time consuming. Have a great weekend.

RE: Eliza Jinkins
Thank you! I will take a look and see if there is anyone else. Doing so gives me a research project and a way to link and keep track of where everyone is at. Looking forward to it, thanks again.

Eliza Jinkins
Thank you for transferring Eliza Jinkins to me. The Franklin Cemetery is one that I always heard about growing up, but I never realized how many people in my family are buried there. Appreciate you creating her memorial! :)
