Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm willing to photograph tombstones in cemeteries in N.W. Ohio.

I've been doing genealogy research for over 30 years and have collected a large amount of data.

I believe that the original family data I have makes me the caretaker and not the owner. I'll gladly share what I have with others.

I have a REAL problem with others who are trying to build a mega list of managed sites.

TRANSFERS: With any Find A Grave memorial that I maintain, if you are a closer relative than I, I will transfer. If I have no connection and you have some connection (even friendship), I will transfer.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 85140137
Thank you for your reply. I have my family tree info on WikiTree under Friesen-403. It is a free site so you should be able to access it if you would like to. The Samson Piersol/Peirsol/Pearsall/Pearsol 's also to at least two Ruth Piersol's are on my mothers line of the family. Then up her mother's side (Shanor/Shaner). Up the line David Shanor/Shaner was married to Ruth Piersol/Peirsol/Pearsall/Pearsol

Find A Grave Memorial# 85140137 Rachael Piersol.I attempted to email you but it just wouldn't work so I'm putting this public message.
I think I am related to Rachael, but not certain. I am asking if it would be alright to list you as a source and take some of the census information you have here to add information for the family at May I use your information here, and if yes then I will gladly put you as the "source" in my listed sources. I will probably (for my own self look up, if possible, the census you have listed here). Thank you for all the information you added. I am related to two of the Samson Piersol/Peirsol/Pearsall/Pearsol 's also to at least two Ruth Piersol's. The name is spelled various ways. I noticed it is also even spelled different ways on the headstone and on the grave marker for Sampson (the same person). Thank you.

RE: Thanks Bruce
First: not infrequently, "Polly" is a nickname for Mary or Martha. So, for the moment, consider Polly == Mary below.

In any case, late last night I found (in my own sources folder, for cryin' out loud) Pictorial History of Fort Wayne, Indiana, Vol 2, B J Griswold; bio sketch of William J Vesey, st. p. 582. Griswold has William Vesey (great-grandfather) married Polly, dau of John and Polly (Spear) Burridge, 1786. Braintree Records (Bates) has family of John and Mary (Spear) Burridge: daughter Polly, born May 28, 1780. Either Griswold has date of marriage wrong (Polly Burridge would've been 6 years old!) or that's the wrong Polly. FYI, Griswold has that William Vesey born 1768, while he was bapt. 1766. Inconsistencies.

However, oldest child of William & Polly was born 1799, so (with noted inconsistencies) I have William married that Polly Burridge about 1798.

Thanks for the responses, Jim.

RE: Thanks Bruce
Hi, Jim. I think we corresponded last sometime in 2011. In any case, regarding offer to transfer William Vesey (mem # 147728624), you're likely a closer relative than I. I.e., my line is through Solomon Veazie (son of William 1616-1681) and (I believe) your line is through Solomon's brother (Ensign) William Veazie/Vesey (md Mary Saunders).

I do have a question regarding Mary Burridge, whom you have as the wife of William Vesey (mem # 147728624) - also your rootsweb ID I48711. Do you have a reference or source for William's marriage to her? I have the Braintree records (Bates) for John Burridge and Mary Spear but can't make a connection with the Veseys.

Winona Friends Cemetery Winona Ohio
Hello Mr Kimble. I spoke to you before about Friends Cemetery in Salem Ohio. In Winona some stones are visible, most are unreadable, though this cemetery is maintained well. I saw you have several photo requests for this cemetery and on a warm day I will look. This entire area was founded by Quakers, Salem in 1806. I know there are books available on Winona's history and Salem which could enlighten your research. I have known members of both Coppock & Bradingham family in my time...any help I can be feel free to contact me

RE: Robert Thompson
thanks for your response. I still think they are the same person, but I do not have any documentation of this. your site mentions he was married to a margaret(last name u/k) and born before 1800 and the other memorial #36769000 shows year of birth as 1764 and spouse as Margaret. I'm leaving this one alone! appreciate the work that you do....
