Bio and Links
Bio Photo Being a Find A Grave photo contributor is the most rewarding & constructive hobby I've ever taken up.. You have my consent to use any of the headstone or plot photos that I've loaded to memorials.. If I've created a memorial for a family member or friend of yours, I'm more than willing to transfer them to you.. I'm not looking to own high numbers of memorials, my intentions as a contributor are to help document the cemeteries and to help family members find their ancestors more easily.. So even if you don't necessarily fit the Find A Grave 'guidelines' for requesting a transfer, don't let that deter you from asking..

I also want to give special mention to my Find A Grave friend, Kris/OSU1988. Kris has been a tremendous help to me by providing me with cemetery records for Williams County. These records have enabled me to add my photos to memorials with confidence and to cross check the photos with placement of the graves and identify those unreadable stones. THANK YOU KRIS!!!

Also, I came across this poem on another contributor's profile and it perfectly conveys my thoughts and feelings as I walk the cemeteries.. so with his permission I've borrowed it from his page and here it is..

Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill;
Today we talked where other cried
For Loved Ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies;
Snatched from the arms of loving kin,
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where the grandparents lay
In the last sleep of their time;
Lying under the trees and clouds -
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot;
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where Mom and Dad lay.
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget,
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past;
To be preserved for generations hence,
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.

RE: H.T. Henry edit
Sandi, I think you are spot on. Gertrude must be his 2nd wife and that H. T. and Howard Theodore Henry are one and the same person.

Can you get the two merged and link Aldura as 1st wife?

Thanks Jean

RE: H.T. Henry edit
Hi Sandi, I agree about H. T. - still working on what his initials stand for then can hopefully find more on him.

RE: Stover edits
Thank you and I accepted the edits. The picture is really poor, as the sun was bright and the stone caused a glare. I will try to get you a better picture on a cloudy day. Have a good day.

RE: Hiram Covell Sr. memorial
Dear Sandi - Thanks for transferring the memorials for Hiram Covell Sr and his 3 granddaughters over to me. Please check out the bio I wrote for his memorial. There is a lot of speculation, clearly identified as such. I do believe it builds a good preliminary case for the familial relationships, though I'm not yet ready to interconnect the respective memorials.

RE: Olive May Ansley memorial 94607074
I would appreciate the transfer if you don't mind. If you decide to keep her, that is equally appealing though. I hope to still locate her mom and dad's graves so I can connect them. Her dad seems to have been in the Hillsdale area of Michigan where he appears to have remarried in the last connection I have for him. I know her half-brother, Phillip Sharp, was as well.
Again, thanks for checking the date and for the creation of her memorial in the first place.

Olive May Ansley memorial 94607074
First, thank you for creating the memorial for Olive (see subject) Ansley and even more for the photo of the tombstone. As a fellow "graver" the work seems unrewarding and my next question might seem the same.

I have an Olive May Ansley who was born in the Bridgewater township on 23 Jul 1878 and died in the same Bridgewater township on 23 Feb 1880. That would make her age exactly 1 yr and 7 months as shown in your picture. Can I impose on you to make another visit to that Heritage Cemetery and verify whether the date is truly 1860 or a worn 1880 date?

If it is 1880 for the death, then we have her birth date with Charles and (Harriet) "C" Ansley (maiden name of Owens) as the parents. THANK YOU.

Mildred Benton Moore

She is buried at the St. Thomas Cemetery, which is located across the street from Holy Angels. Check out Canada's GenWeb Cemetery Project.
