Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a genealogical researcher in the Cincinnati, OH area. I am always glad to hear from other researchers.
Headstones don't last forever. We need to get good digital photos of all the old ones.

If I have accidently added a duplicate, please let me know and I will promptly remove it.

Yes it does appear to be unmarked. The area i very very wet and hard to work in right now but having been there on several occasions I know it is an area with few headstones.

Donna, Thank you for pointing that out. One would think I can't add. I need to take a break from all this I think. Please, if you find anything else I did, let me know. It is nice to think someone has your back.
