Photo Usage Permission Request
Hi Gary,

I also would like to ask you if I could use the photos for Betty Lou Arledge in my family tree, too? (See my previous note, with another photo usage request.) Thanks in advance for your consideration, and I await your reply.

Photo Usage Permission Request
Hi Gary,

Would you care if I used the photoss you submitted in, for Virgil May Jones Arledge, in my own family tree? She is my 4th cousin. If you do permit me to add them to my tree, I would document that the pictures were used with permission from you, and that they were originally submitted by you on findagrave. But I won't use them unless you give me permission. I would love to get to know her family and their descendants, some day. I grew up in Jackson, Ohio, and now live in Columbus. My parents live in Jackson. I am related to Virgil May on my Mom's side of the family.

J.R. O'Harra
This one is James Reid or Reid O'Harra and is actually at Green Lawn Cemetery with his wife Rachel A. Cloud-O'Harra. This is the data that I have for him on Green Lawn Cemetery: O'Harra, James R 02/22/1810 01/05/1855 O'Harra, James (his father of course)
O'Harra, Rachael Ann 05/02/1813 03/31/1877 Cloud, Robert
This is his wife Rachel Ann Cloud James Reid O'Harra's wife...

PS: They only have them listed as being buried there and there is no grave marker for them but if you are interested enough you can make contact with Green Lawn and they can tell you a plot number and section as well. I do not have that information.

Angeline & Sarah Nadenbush
Mr. Royer, Thanks so much for publishing the information and photos of the Old Franklinton Cemetery and the grave stone of Angeline and for memorializing Angeline and Sarah. My great, great, great grandmother Eliza Nadenbush Gaw was their sister. I visited the site a number of years ago from California and also took photos. Angeline died from complications of child birth in bearing her son James Van Pelt.
I appreciate your service in preserving the information on our departed ancestors by recording their gravestones.
Blessings on you.

RE: Risley Memorials
Hi Gary- Thanks so much for transferring the memorials. I really appreciate it. I will definitely keep the information about you organizing the effort to get a headstone for Jacob. That was a very kind thing for you to do. Best wishes for health and happiness in 2014! Best, Matt

RE: Mazie Hinton Jones #14424985

You are very welcome. Mazie's father, John Cox Hinton, is my 2nd g-grandfather. I have a Hinton tree on Let me know if you would like access to the tree. The research is part mine, part from G W Hinton's family history and the research of Phyllis Hinton Queen.

I see you have a picture of the old post office in Franklinton and also known as the David Deardurff home (as the sign in front of the house says). That settles that discussion about the spelling of David's last name.
Who do I get in touch with to see abou getting a veterans monument put up for Jospeh Grate?
Again thanks for all the work you do.

Scioto Cemetery
Hello Gary:
I was reading with interest the comments on the photos of Scioto Cemetery and was disgusted to read about the vandalism by three teens. I would be interested in more. Could you please email me privately? dianne_m43701 (at) Thanks for the consideration.
