Bio Photo My name is Joan Shoffner
I have lived all my life in Sidney,Ohio
I have been searching for my Family for 10 years.My Husband would go along with me to the cemetery. I take a lot of tombstone picture and put them on Find a Grave so that other people can find there family member.

*From Find a Grave's Help Page:
Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations, this would be your great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, or siblings. Aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. do not fall into this category. Bulk surname requests should not be made

you can use my tombstone and personal picture just ask.

Gene Dulin
Samuel Alfred Dulin
Their suggestion:
Samuel Died At Shelby Co.Infirmary

That's what Samuel's Find-a-Grave Bio already states as per the "Memorial Records of Shelby County, Ohio."

John W. Miller #39398551
Please note I have added a copy of death certificate for John W. Miller who died March 24, 1940 to your memorial for him at Frysinger Cemetery, Mercer Co., OH. You will see he died in Allen County, Ohio - not Mercer County. You may wish to correct the memorial.

Thank you and take care,
Shirley Houk

Alonzo Davis
Joan, I was able to rule out your Alonzo Davis as husband of Forest Siler and father of Zeda. Your Alonzo married Mary Francis Ralston in 1891. I have both Alonzo and Mary's death certificates showing burial in "Dinsmore Cemetery" which I assume is now renamed. Gary

Alonzo Davis
Forest May (Siler) Davis was the sister of my great-grandfather Marion Siler. I've spent a great deal of time tracing those roots and have searched in vain for Alonzo V. Davis after Forest's death. There were a handful of Alonzos in and around Miami County and the surrounding counties. I sytematically traced each one and had to rule them out as my Alonzo. You show Alonzo in a Shelby County cemetery linked to Forest May Siler. I'm pretty sure I ruled him out before. Do you have any citations for the connection? Gary

Catherine Howe Horney
Thank you, Joan, for photographing the stone for Catherine Howe Horney. I am a direct descendant of Catherine and Daniel Horney. I do have a correction for the Find a Grave listing. Catherine's mother's maiden name was Holbpeter, not Hollypeter. Would you please make that correction? I would be happy to take over the management of this site. Again, thank you! Jane Albright
