I just submitted an edit to add his middle name and link him to his parents. I verified his information on while researching my family tree. Thank you for maintaining his page. :) Have a great weekend.

I was wondering about the write up done on Fannie Mae Anderson Grady's memorial. She is my husband's 2nd great Aunt and we'd love to get into contact with more of the family.

Taylor Salmons
I just found out my old friend Taylor "Tate" Salmons passed away in 1987. I was wondering if you could give me any info on what happened. He was such a special person.
Thank you for any help you can provide.

Re John M Smith_# 39295712
Hi Laurie, I was at Sterling Union Cemetery this week taking photos; was particularly interested in finding "John M Smith" as I believe he may be my 4th grt grandfather. I took a photo of an undated headstone that otherwise seemed to match your memorial and description--it read simply "JOHN M. SMITH, CO. G VET. RES CORPS" - and while it looks quite old, it also had a flag marker with metal star on it which says "Veteran World War". So my question is, if he was born ca. 1830, can this be the same John M. Smith who was also a "Private 16th OVI Company K - Civil War" as your description seems to state? Or has someone mismarked the gravesite with a "World War" marker? (He'd have been almost 90 yrs old...) I noticed Douglas King also has an undated Sterling Union Cemetery memorial for a John M Smith (a Civil War vet - Findagrave Memorial #31205194). It's a bit confusing; thanks in advance for your help!

Hi Laurie,

This is my 5th Great Grandfather. Would you consider transferring ownership of this account to me?

I wish to expand on the Bio section to provide more information.

John M Smith, Civil War Vet
Hi, wondering if there is a possible duplication on this site for my 3x great grandfather John M Smith who was a Civil War Vet? Both memorials are yours, though one has more extensive Civil War info on it and a birthdate of ca.1830. Both memorials state he was a private in the Infantry, 16th regiment, company K (Ohio) and was buried in Sterling Union Cemetery in Wayne County, OH.

Here are the two memorials:

Memorial# 39295712

Memorial# 31205194

I have that John was a carpenter, born about 1821 in PA and died between 1880 and 1886 in PA. His father's surname was likely Monosmith, shortened by John to Smith. John's wife was Elizabeth M (Carmany) Smith, born about 1826 in PA, died Sep 1926, in Milton, Wayne County, Ohio.

Appreciate your help! We are trying to plan a summer trip to photograph Ohio ancestor headstones (where found).

Eleazer Lindsley
Hi Laurie,

My apologies but could you delete the photo I added of the house. I have since learned that Eleazer's house was purchased by the Presbyterian Church in Lawrenceville and was torn down in 1888 and used in the church parlors. thank you, Phil

Mary McCabe
Hi- I would like you to examine the second photo taken by a volunteer of this gravestone. This Mary McCabe died in September 1840. Someone moved dirt near the bottom of the monument, and it appears to say that Mary was 62 years old. Perhaps an infant was buried in the same plot, but it would not be Mary. Under the circle at the top, I believe the first line is "MARY" with the Y eroded. The next line is most likely "WIFE OF" with only the "WI" clear at all. The next line I believe is "MILES McCABE", with only the "Mil" showing. The next line I think is "DIED SEPTEMBER"- the "Died" is fairly clear, but the September could be read as "infant"..... when the dirt below is taken away, it is easier to read. When the bottom is partially cleared of dirt, you can see the "DIED and SEPTEMBER", although I do not know if there is a day date in between. The bottom line, which you could not see before, I believe says "Aged 62 Years". If you take 1840 and subtract 62 years, you get 1778 which is about when I thought Mary would be born. I surmise that the back of this monument might have memorialized Miles, but of course, I do not have any picture or proof. A lot of this McCabe family is buried in this cemetery.

Please reply either to the F-A-G site, or me directly at Bonnie Fago
