Bio and Links
Bio Photo Please be nice - as the person who puts in any number of edits, fixes and interments, I do so out of the love in my heart. . . mostly for family and friends. . .but I also do it as voluntary part of my JOB.

If what you are asking for is part of my family, a project I am currently working on or part of a close friends family, I will not transfer it to you.

I do not include ALL information for the interment if there is a Death certificate, a headstone or an obit included with the interment. I will happily take the time to add parents and spouses as requested.

If the people you are searching for are from Muskingum and surrounding counties in Ohio, you may find copies of obits here:

Muskingum Co Chapter OGS
Post Office Box 2427
Zanesville, OH 43702-2427

Shumate, Parkinson, McGlaughlin, VanMeter are the base names for Willow's family
Middaugh, Head, Fain, and Duncan are the base names of Bear's family.

RE: Betty Lou Smith Foshee
Thank you. I probably wouldn't have such an interest in it if it wasn't for my grandma Sue. She had put in sooo much time and money when I was a teen into genealogy; I'd like to get further on the tree for her.
I do miss her lots :( Joe had gotten remarried, it has been tough on me- maybe a little too much because even tho he is considered my 'step' grandparent, they were married long before I was thought of so he will always be my grandpa. I should talk to him more but my heart hurts

I am working from a partial list provided by the current holder of the cemetery records that I used to update photos in the current find-a- grave list. Milo is in row 20, grave 20 (20-20). On the short list I have from the photos, close by are MA Spittler 21-15, Minnie Pinnicks 19-16, Betty Bower 21-24, Forest Jewell 20-24, Charles H Miller 19-17, and F Speicher 20-17. I will be happy to take a picture of the area and surrounding stones for you in the near future if you would like/prefer. I am trying to help the cemetery reconcile their records and the website records to make things easier all the way around.

Harrison Shumate
The father and mother of Harrison Shumate were John Shumate and Sarah Sally Milbourn Shumate. See Green Shumate info.

Rachel Gibson married a John Shumate but they remained in Virginia and appear in the 1850 census. I have a copy of their marriage document and that of John Shumate and Sarah Sally Milbourn and they are not the same.

George Phillip Snyder
Do you by any chance have a 1850 census for Phillip Snyder (81987712)? I have tried looking for him in Tuscarawas County and also for his daughter, Celecta; but no luck locating either one of them.

Hi, Tricia -
I think you just didn't realize "who" I am - we've talked before. If I remember correctly, you descend from Della Alzina McDonald Milhoan - and I descend from her sister, Mary Elizabeth McDonald Frazier.

RE: Mary J. Pherson
You're welcome! This stone is in the section across the lane from the mausoleum. I think it was close to the middle. I found two requests in that section so I am not sure which one is which right now. The stone is in row four.

RE: Jenkins/ Hankinson Connection
Thank you so much for the forward. I appreciate that you did that for me. I saw your Hankinson Virtual Cemetery link on your bio page and just got carried away, I guess. Yes, we are cousins by marriage, it seems. My husband's father was the son of Walter Bullard who married Margaret L. McClelland, Corintha Jenkins McClelland's daughter. So you two share the Hankinson blood. It is very nice to meet you, too! This sort of thing always tickles me. Thanks again for the forward and for all the good information such as death certs you've posted to the various family memorials.

This makes us cousins.

As I said she is my 4th Great Grandmother.

With the exception of a few links you can go forward and end up with my Great Grand Father William Mathias Hill who married Clara Mae Woodruff.

Actually I do not need this to be transferred, since I have linked her to her husband and I can forward any parents info if I find it.

So are you Tricia Shumate? We have spoken before on this line?

Arthur Garfield Hankinson (son of Hugh Shotwell Hankinson) is connected to our family through the Clappers on my mothers side
