Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm twenty-three-years-old and live in Ohio.

I've been interested in genealogy since I was a young kid. According to my mom, whenever they would get the newspaper, the only thing I wanted to read was the obituaries!

Currently I am focusing on photographing Fountain Cemetery in Fostoria, Hancock County, Ohio.

If anyone I've added is related to you, but not me, I'll gladly transfer their memorials to you if you ask. I find it to be so rewarding getting a message from someone asking me if I will do a transfer as they are related to someone I added. Being able to say I've helped someone find their loved one--as I added them on here, is why I do what I do.

If you would like to use any of the photographs that I have added on FindAGrave, please ask for permission before taking and using on other websites. Thank you!

When I first joined FAG almost eight years ago it was to find distant relatives--and I succeeded and in the process added many other relatives. That is why I take pictures of cemeteries & post the information on the graves, in hopes that one of the deceased's family members finds the memorial and wants to manage & add to it.

If you would like a family member's memorial transferred to you, please send it via the Correction tab instead of in a message. Thank you!

Listed below are the families that I research and the areas that they are from. Below that, I have listed my deceased grandparents. Feel free to leave a flower. Thanks!

Thank you for the photo of my grandfather's stone. My father looked for many years for this grave. I found after I got into doing the family' s genealogy. Order a stone from the government, but was never sure it was laid ,so it was great to see the photo. Helen Essenberg

You requested a photo for Johannes Neff, I think if you look through the Burkholder Cemetery graves, you will notice that there is a John shown with the same death date as yours, Is it possible that this is the same person I have scrolled through my pictures to see if I had taken another but no luck

Joyce Niswander
Phyllis Benjamin & Robert Atchison
Hello jdean,

My name is Joyce Niswander and I accepted your photo request for the above two names in Maple Grove Cemetery. I went to the location where they are interred and found no headstone/marker. Usually when that happens I go back to make sure. I took a copy of the map from the section, that I copied from the eCIMS, on my second visit. The reason why I did this was because someone has a very nice memorial in the location where I thought Phyllis and Robert are interred. But there are no names there. So I'm asking a favor, will you please look at the map for Maple Grove on eCIMS and see if my interpretation is correct. Then look at the photos that I will upload soon. If you are not completely satisfied with my conclusion on this matter, please let me know. Then I will return to Maple Grove and try again. Thank you.

Orison Greeley -
You have posted the dates of birth and death on the memorial page, but they are not on the headstone. I was wondering if you could tell me where the dates came from? Did you have access to the cemetery records?

I am looking for an Orison Sylvester Greeley. My aunt's records show he was born 1858, died 1931 in North Platte, NE. I have found an Orison in Ohio and another in New York - so far none in Nebraska!

But, since Orison is such an unusual name, I was wondering if there might be more information about the one in your memorial. I'd like to see if he might be related.

Thank you for your time and for all the work you've done for Find A Grave. It is very much appreciated.

Janice K. Sharp Ebersole - 111140762 has her parents listed as Ona Widener - 11140862 & Helen Long Sharp - 143123272. The father should probably be listed as Glenn M. Sharp - 111140862. Looks like you needed an extra one. I'm related to Ona Widener and didn't recognize the name listed as her child.
