About death certificates and other documents - I ask politely that you PLEASE don't post any DC's or other documents to my memorials. I like to honor their life and history. My humble opinion is that their death is a personal/private matter for not only the deceased but also the family/descendents. I do welcome any photos of the individual so we can see them when alive. I appreciate your honoring my preference.|
About photos, if another contributor has posted gravestone photos to one of my memorials, please do not post any duplicates. thank you for that!
The Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you'd have them do unto you"
Please don't create duplicates when you know another memorial was created first. If there is an error in cemetery or info, be courteous and contact the original contributor. You'd want that gesture offered to you too.
We are ALL part of this magnificant GIANT historical jigsaw puzzle!
I always have and still do love puzzles. And I have been bitten by the genealogy research bug for years! Better than fiction!
I am NOT involved with findagrave for the numbers. I research every person for whom I create a memorial for accuracy and in an attempt to include as much information as possible.
Whenever possible, I also try to link family members. I feel that is most important and a way to have them all 'reunited.'
This is a marvelous venue to not only recognize, remember and HONOR those who have passed before us, but also to assist families in the future in finding their ancestors and hopefully even seeing a photo of their headstone.
My sincere thanks to all findagrave contributors and photographers for all you have done for me and the entire findagrave community! It takes a village!
For the MOST part, the cooperation and sharing on this site are tremendous and heart-warming.
A special thanks to contributor peace4me- she is a prolific and wonderful photo contributor and a super nice person to work with! She is incredible with photos in Wheeling West Virginia and beyond!
Remember: be kind to one another!

|Chris U.||RE: Lee O Losh|
I reviewed this memorial and I don't have a spouse attached to Lee. I'm not sure what to do from here.

|Terry Cooper||RE: Cooper cemetery|
No that's a different one. The one that I mentioned has my father's father's relatives in it. The one already in the database is a different set of Coopers.
|Terry Cooper||RE: cemeteries|
Okay I must be a total bone head because I don't see where I can create a new cemetery. Can you send me step-by-step instructions?
The only Mt Zion I could find was this one:
Mount Zion UMC Cemetery - Joppa
See: McComas Institute Cemetery
|Susan||RE: parents of Aaron Gilbert|
His d/c states his parents names are John & Anna. Maybe Robert & Rebekah Young Gilbert are aunt & uncle? Or maybe middle names were used, i.e. John Robert Gilbert & Anna Rebekah Gilbert?

Thank you for the links to Mr. Dobbins' parents. I appreciate you!
|Cindy Courtier||Ada Brich|
Ada was a sister to Sarah Birch:
I have this from the research of Viola Reed, and avid Atkinson researcher:
George Birdsong died December 27, 1859. After his death, Sarah Birch Atkinson married Ephraim Thomas July 1863 and lived near Harmony Church, Belmont County. In 1886, Sara Birch Atkinson Thomas bought property in Batesville. In 1895, August 5, Sarah died and was buried in Harmony Church Cemetery near Boston, Belmont Co. OH. In 1905, Sarah Thomas' property was deeded to her sister, Adda Birch. She sold it to the trustees of the M.E. Church for a parsonage in 1916. This is the property now owned by Viola Reed (1992).
Maybe we will find out some day...if only those stones could talk.....

|s e folmar||Re: Mt Wood|
photo requests: There is a space on the Widdel stone above Fred's wife's name where he should be but its blank. There is an individual stone that says FATHER. Its on a steep hill & leans forward. Would be hard to get a photo but I can try? I found Caroline Ebeling but not August. He is listed in the Mt Wood records but no location given. I found Geo Reitz A-42 & the book says Catherine is there as well. I found no stone. Thomas Moore A-5: the book says Thomas Moore on that lot was born 1899 died 1904, no stone found.
The Lewellens D-56. Doesn;t look like there is a D-56. E-56 looks like its right on the line so I looked there, nothing. The 2 others on that lot are Elizabeth E (infant) buried 20May1889 & Charles buried 28Mar1914 46y. I found a bunch of Serigs but no Sarah. She's not listed in the records either. Henrietta Miller isn't listed. The 2 daughters that married JW Fox are but I couldn't find them. Geo & Wm Otto aren't listed either. Even with a Section & Lot its practically impossible to find anyone. Its pure luck when I do. There are stones down in the woods but I'm afraid to venture down there unless someone else is with me. I tried.

I am interested to see if you have any more information about John Gibson and his children. I am trying to find the parents of Anna Seckman nee Gibson (#43471553). I am wondering if this John was her father. If you have any information, I'd appreciate it. Thanks

|s e folmar||RE: Weeks military stone|
Sorry I haven't been in touch. Lots of outside work to do. I think it says Co A.
I looked thru Belmont Co naturalization records. The only 2 Gl names were Martin Glaser & Frederick Glatzer. Both naturalized after 1890. Looked in Belmont Co Wills. No likely prospects there either. I'm going to try a little judicious cleaning & see if I can get a better photo or rubbing. I'm running out of ideas.
