Bio and Links
Bio Photo I don't live near any of my own relatives and very much appreciate the work that folks from those areas have done. I concentrate on the cemeteries near my home, adding information about spouses, maiden names, and parents whenever I find sources that appear to be valid. I'm sure there are times that I'm led astray by what looks valid, so please send an edit or contact me if you see something that doesn't look right!

I'm glad to transfer records if you're a direct relative of someone whose memorial I created. Please see the FAG guidelines under "How do I get a Relative's Memorial Transferred to Me" on the "Help with Find A Grave" page.

Feel free to use the headstone photos that I've taken in any way that is respectful.

My profile picture is of Kari, one of my second great-grandmothers.

Lloyd Martin Graham
Thank you for being so kind for posting in Find A Grave for people lie me who can get there to visit.. but I was wondering if you would mind correcting the birth place on this gentleman's profile in the Alexander Cemetery in Hebbardsville, Athens County, Ohio. I am pasting below the birth record for Lloyd which shows he was buried in Athens county, not Fairfield and also a link to show you where Pleasant Hill is located in Athens County

Ohio, Birth Index, 1908-1964

Name: Lloyd M Graham
Birth Date: 17 Aug 1925
Birth Place: Athens
State File Number: 1925073669
Additional Information: Warren GRAHAM

Source Information Ohio, Birth Index, 1908-1964 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Operations, Inc., 2012.

and this link show where Pleasant Hill is located.
Look at D7 .

I know how easy it is to get name places confused myself and please do not take it as a criticsm. I am thankful for people who do this!
Kindest Regards Randy Sue Page McKeever

Eliza Perry Gilbert - 81147225
Should the marriage date of 1947 to Joseph Gilbert be changed to 1847? That is how it appears on his memorial.

RE: William Harkin's Year of Birth
I looked again at your post and it looks all right the way you have it. You have included his correct birth year and shown where you found the data.

RE: William Harkin's Year of Birth
I believe in this instance that the person placing the order for the stone made the error since his enlistment record indicated that his birth year was 1917, not 1914. He did not lie when he enlisted.

If I were you, I should include the correct information in his bio. I may have given you all that I found to support it. Include the support also.

Thank for your time and effort to post to Find a Grave.

Dr. Thomas A. Copeland, Athens Ohio
Dear wjw,

Thanks for all the work you have done. I am a granddaughter of T.A. Copeland and his second wife, May Agnes Stewart. I am amazed to find that you have discovered the names and dates for their children (their daughter is my mother.) How did you do it?

Best regards,

Nita Eckenrode Barnes was my grandmother and Tilden Jr was my father. I'm sure they knew your family. :-) Nice to meet you!

John Lantz is also my 3rd great grandfather. I am descended from his daughter (Louisa's sister) Elizabeth Ann Lantz who married Joshua Hyde. Their daughter Nettie May was my grandmother's mother. :-)
