Bio and Links
Bio Photo Connecting families of the Mid Ohio Valley,one gravestone at a time.

We have been doing genealogy for many years. We love the Find a Grave website and really enjoy cemetery hopping to take photo requests.

We photograph whole cemeteries, so if you see someone we have entered that is related to you, we would be more than happy to transfer them to you. Just ask. After all, that is what Find A Grave is all about. People maintaining their family's memorials, because who knows more about them than their own family.

DEAR ANCESTOR,
Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
And come to visit you.

Thanks so much again! Also, I looked at your Bio and absolutely love what is written about Ancestors. It was so heart warming to read and a perfect fit for anyone interested in Ancestry research!

Take care,

Thank you very much for your time and effort getting the photo for me. One day I would love to come to Marietta and do research as my Grandmother was a Gilchrist at birth, but was adopTed soon after. I can not locate any info on her at all.
Thanks again!

mr Basil R. Hayes
Dear mr and mrs Wince,

My name is Erik and I live in the Netherlands. A while ago I bought a WWII dogtag on an online auction. The dogtag belonged to private Basil R. Hayes. Browsing the internet I found one of your contributions on findagrave.com and I am pretty sure that it belonged to the mr Hayes which grave you added (https://findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=122316280).
We in the Netherlands owe so much to the American troups who liberated the Netherlands in 1944 and 1945.
Thanks to your work, it opened a connection to a life and place with this once very personal article.
If it is ok and appropriate, I am happy to add a photo of this dogtag to mr Hayes' page on findagrave.com.

Regards,
Erik van Soelen
