Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find a Grave is a great way to honor our ancestors who so bravely paved the way before us. They must not be forgotten.

I have been interested in creating personal and historical links and remembrances to my ancestors, so almost every one of my memorials I have created are a part of my or my husbands family. I appreciate folks who generously transfer their memorials to family members. It makes it so much easier to add bios and make the links and corrections. If I have created an occasional memorial outside of our family, I will gladly transfer to their family members also. Just ask...make sure to give your member number and memorial number.

I have shared personal pictures & portraits and historical documents on many of my memorials and I give my permission to use these in your own personal memorials or family trees, but my personal photos are not to be used for publishing or monetary gain.

I would love to hear from family! Obituaries, more family photos and stories are very much welcomed! Happy hunting.

RE: Old Pine Chuch Cemetery
Thank you for your gracious message. I always appreciate opportunities to correct the record, and have spent time today identifying suspected duplicates. I did visit both graveyards several times to photograph stones in different kinds of light. It's great that you met with the deacon. I contacted the church but never heard back. Several local librarians tried to assist me, but again with limited success.

One source I used has some additional data. I plan to contact you through the Edit tab as I continue to sort through this. Accuracy is what matters most in this caring effort!

Jesse Taylor (Taylar)

Thank you for your work on Find A Grave. Jesse Taylor was my 3rd great grandfather. I am researching to see if this is MY Jesse Taylor. Additionally, it has been passed down by my grandmother's Last Will and Testament; that he was related to the 12th President of the US Zachary Taylor. Thanks for any insight that you might have and your time.

RE: Jesse Taylor pictures
Hi Carolyn,

Thank you for the lovely pictures that you posted of St Mary's and the Old Pine Church Cemetery. I have taken pictures of both locations...and saw the request for the Jesse Taylor (Taylar) and that there are two memorials on in each cemetery. I contacted the person requesting the picture and was asked to put it on the site. I am now thinking of going to the local library and looking up particulars...if any are to be found. I was requesting a merger of memorials, but nothing has been done as of yet.

Again, thanks for all your volunteer work with F-A-G. And you are is a lovely area.

You are most welcome! Memorializing and photographing the Hayfork Cemetery was quite a project, one I enjoyed so very much. I traveled from California to Ohio this fall to find my family's graves in Delphos, so I know how far it really is! I took all the time I wanted and thoroughly enjoyed my day!

RE: Pizzella Photos
You are welcome. I don't recall the name but it has been a while since I had been at Union. Put a request in I will do a walk through at some point and see if I can find it.
