Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm twenty-three-years-old and live in Ohio.

I've been interested in genealogy since I was a young kid. According to my mom, whenever they would get the newspaper, the only thing I wanted to read was the obituaries!

Currently I am focusing on photographing Fountain Cemetery in Fostoria, Hancock County, Ohio.

If anyone I've added is related to you, but not me, I'll gladly transfer their memorials to you if you ask. I find it to be so rewarding getting a message from someone asking me if I will do a transfer as they are related to someone I added. Being able to say I've helped someone find their loved one--as I added them on here, is why I do what I do.

If you would like to use any of the photographs that I have added on FindAGrave, please ask for permission before taking and using on other websites. Thank you!

When I first joined FAG almost eight years ago it was to find distant relatives--and I succeeded and in the process added many other relatives. That is why I take pictures of cemeteries & post the information on the graves, in hopes that one of the deceased's family members finds the memorial and wants to manage & add to it.

If you would like a family member's memorial transferred to you, please send it via the Correction tab instead of in a message. Thank you!

Listed below are the families that I research and the areas that they are from. Below that, I have listed my deceased grandparents. Feel free to leave a flower. Thanks!

RE: Your 4x great grandmother
Hi Julie! I am so sorry it has taken me THIS long to respond! I think it was just one of those emails I got and thought it was junk mail or something... but I happened to log in today and see your message (it's been a while since I logged onto here, obviously... LOL). So before I get into all that, let me just start by saying that the Nancy on my Ancestry tree shows her full maiden name as Nancy Adeline H Ayers (B. 1790, D. 1865) and she married a Jacob Johnson (B. 1788, D. 1816?) and the lineage on my Ancestry shows as Nancy Ayers Ellenore Elly Johnson? (married a James Campbell?) Manerva Campbell James C Pauley Myrtle C Pauley (married Granville T Dean - my great grandparents) James Louis Dean (my grandpa) James Harold Dean (my dad). So I know that is all kinda confusing... but the Dean side gets a little confusing for me after the Pauley lineage since we don't really have good records, personally, in hand in our home. :)

Phoebe A Fox, my bad
Thank you for entering the additions to memorials in Graham Cemetery, OH for me and I appreciate all the graves you have documents. I humbly beg forgiveness, but I was one digit off on one of my entries; the correct mother of Phoebe A. Fox Tracy (89671268) is Mary Ann Fox (36948349) and not the one not the person I entered. I will make an official request, but just want to let you know that how much I value your work and that I am sorry. Thanks Again.

Thank you for the photo of my grandfather's stone. My father looked for many years for this grave. I found after I got into doing the family' s genealogy. Order a stone from the government, but was never sure it was laid ,so it was great to see the photo. Helen Essenberg

You requested a photo for Johannes Neff, I think if you look through the Burkholder Cemetery graves, you will notice that there is a John shown with the same death date as yours, Is it possible that this is the same person I have scrolled through my pictures to see if I had taken another but no luck
