RE: Larabee
No need to make public. You can allow me to view by "sharing" - I've found that works best with the e-mail the person who is being allowed to share. My e-mail is I would suggest you return your tree to private. I keep the tree for my own family private. My larger tree - for Portage County (Ohio) is public. It contains all the stuff for the trees I've researched for people buried in my home county, which I started when I was asked for help with Civil War veterans.

RE: Larabee in Roselawn
Will do. Just need to tie up a few loose ends.
It seems the son's memorial was also de-listed for some reason. Will get that done sometime this evening.

RE: Swaim
Thanks for your wonderful reply. I'm only a Public member on, through the school where I work and am not a member.

Since your husband has passed away and his photos were returned to his children, I'll let you go and not correspond.

I'm trying to identify people in old Swaim pictures but if your photos have been returned, then I don't want to bother you.

I cannot connect Emma Swaim Welch's gravestone to the Swaim family since her stone has not been photographed for Find-A-Grave.

Thank you for your time.

RE: Larabee in Roselawn
I heard back from the City of Solon and have posted memorials for Marenus, Mary & 2 young children. I've also asked for photos of all four.

Please contact us as we are descendants of Emma Swaim Welch. We have the full photo of Benjamin Swaim and his wife, taken in 1924 that you cropped for Benjamin's photo on Find-A-Grave.

We have a photo of Emma with her two brothers and two women, who we think are her sisters.

We also have several tintype photos but we don't know if the relatives in these photos are Swaim or Welch ancestors.

Thanks for posting the information for Benjamin Swaim. So wonderful and helpful!

RE: Hurricane Mathew
You must be following me around. I have some 2nd cousins who live in that part of the world.
Hope yours are safe.

RE: Hurricane Mathew
We are in western NC and therefor didn't have any significant problems. We're at >2000 ft elevation. A bit of strong wind but nothing more than usual. Eastern part of the state suffered mostly from rain & resultant flooding. Quite a few deaths, unfortunately.

I didn't look at your header - now I see you are in Arizona. I'll try to e-mail the city & let you know what I find.
