If you're a descendant of someone and would like me to transfer the memorial to you, I certainly will (as long as I'm not related also).

I try to make corrections/additions quickly (within a couple days), so please if you see an error, let me know. If you see a duplication, and my memorial was created after the original one, please let me know and I will delete it. Don't be offended if I don't write to you afterwards, telling you that I've completed the corrections. I work full time and have two little boys, and therefore I do not have a lot of extra time. (I do write back to people if you think we have a familial connection).

Please do not ask me to add information from a book of cemetery inscriptions. If the book is not in the public domain, then I cannot add the info from the book.

My dad's side comes from Crawford County, Ohio. My mom's lines were mostly from Darke/Miami/Montgomery Counties in Ohio, and Cass/Miami Counties, Indiana.
My husband's lines are from WV (mainly Mingo/Logan Counties, the Parkersburg area, and Jackson/Roane/Lewis Counties).

Nancy O,
HI. Thanks for your warning. I'm continuing to think this through. The edits I'm sending to you are for memorials you've entered w/photos. We're just filling in information based on the Short/Bowers book as a reference. You have a source--the stone that you photographed, so I don't see any infringement. I'm walking the entire old section of the cemetery and photographing all the stones not already pictured on Find A Grave. I'm using the book as a guide to help locate and identify stones that are difficult to read not copying or re-publishing the book. I included a reference to the source in my edit for your reference/confidence in the information.

Nancy O,
RE: Copyright
The original book does have a copyright 1972, but the content we're using is only the transcribed inscriptions from the stones, many of which were readable in 1965 but are not readable now or barely readable. I think we should be OK with this; we're just posting the original inscriptions on the stones not any commentary made about them and we're not copying/publishing the entire book, just using it as a reference for confirming the original inscriptions. I'm planning to go back to the cemetery to continue photographing the old stones that are not yet posted.

Joseph Rodgers and Elizabeth Haney
In 2012 you added a lovely page on Elizabeth Rodgers, buried 1874, in the Monroe Cemetery, Perry Co OH. The information was extensive, so I have to think you may be related to this family. Where did you find all these facts? I have not been able to find much of anything about Elizabeth or her husband Joseph Rodgers. Anything you can suggest for me would be a great help.

Darlene Swonger
Stewart Cemetery
I am writing regarding two graves in the Stewart Cemetery. They are listed under the name of Swonger.
One is Nancy Estella Swonger and the one that
I am curious about is unknown. No information.
Nancy is the grandaughter of who I AM looking for.

I have looked intensily for a Sarah Ann Boyd Swonger. Her spouse was John Swonger who died
in the Civil War and John is buried in the
Stones River National Cemetery in Murfreesboro, Rutherford Co., Tennessee. It is possible that
the unknown site is Sara Ann Boyd Swonger b1809 John and Sarah were from Pennsylvania and were married in Pennsylvania. My records show that Sarah died February 28, 1874 in Bucyrus, Crawford Co., Ohio. John's military record shows he served with the 64th Regiment Ohio Infantry. The 1870 census has Sarah and son John living in Liberty, Crawford Co., Ohio.
That is the information I have on Sarah

If you have any way of searching for any clues that might identify the unknow grave or any other records you could search to find Sarah
Ann Boyd Swonger I would be thrilled. I have searched for her along time. It seems that it
is possible, I can only hope. Thank you for
your effort.
Darlene Swonger
