Bio Photo Strangers in the Box
By Pamela A. Harazim

Come, look with me inside this drawer, In this box I've often seen, At the pictures, black and white, Faces proud, still, serene. I wish I knew the people, These strangers in the box, Their names and all their memories Are lost among my socks. I wonder what their lives were like.
How did they spend their days? What about their special times? I'll never know their ways. If only someone had taken time To tell who, what, where, when, These faces of my heritage Would come to life again. Could this become the fate
Of the pictures we take today? The faces and the memories Someday to be tossed away? Make time to save your pictures, Seize the opportunity when it knocks, Or someday you and yours could be
The strangers in the box.

If there are any graves that I have put on here that are in your family lines and you want them I will Transfer them. With the understanding that I would like to keep my family lines. I love going to cemeteries and I feel if we dont get the information from their graves now that they maybe lost. Within my short time of doing these photos and graves, I have seen with my own eyes some of these graves are unreadable now. But these pictures have brought them back to life. Find a grave has guidelines on transfers, mine is if you ask for a transfer, you should be able to have it unless I want it for my tree and edits. My daughter is still young but I plan to show her What my mother and I have done here and she too can carry on this adventure.

I am doing family genealogy on the DeVore, Kirk, Clark, Ward, Messenger, these are the main ones...

Albert Willis Swinehart
Hello Maggie, I'm trying to clarify some things in my family tree records. Memorial #101283157 shows Albert with a birth date of Apr 1860 and a death date of 15 Nov 1934. He is buried in Longview Cemetery, Bowerston with no headstone according to your listing.

However, I see another findagrave listing with Albert Swinehart's birth date as 23 May 1860 and death date of 15 Nov 1934. He is buried in Conotton Cemetery, with a headstone and including his wife, Clara Bowers. Did you get your information from cemetery records, since there is no headstone?

Thank you for your efforts to post these records on findagrave.

I forgot to mention that I have no problem with you using the photo for your own not-for-profit family history.

I checked for your request for this stone in Reston Cemetery but found it in Pipestone, a few miles east.

Photo has been uploaded there. Cheers, Sharon

Daniel W. Garwood, Hardin County, OH
You have this young man attached to the wrong Garwood family -- but the right Morrow family.

His parents were David G. Garwood (1830-1906) and Rachael A. (Morrow) Garwood 1834-1864. They were married June 28, 1860, in Delaware, OH, and both are buried in Columbiana County, OH.

Rachel died ten days after Daniel Garwood's birth in 1864. David Garwood remarried in 1866 to Emma Casselberry, by whom he had a daughter, Laura.

Daniel went to live with his maternal grandparents, Charles and Esther (McElroy) Morrow, in Mt. Victory, Hardin County.

Daniel's brother, Charles Garwood (c. 1861-??) lived with their uncle, Charles W. and Elizabeth Ann (Beamer) Morrow, also in Hardin County, when both the 1870 and 1880 US censuses were taken. Charles W. Morrow was the son of Charles Esther Morrow and brother of Rachel (Morrow) Garwood.

I duplicated my family records. I am trying to defer to your memorials as you created them first. Please help me with my effort.

Thanks so much,
