Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Jefferson Co., OH. I'm a medical transcriptionist. Been doing my family genealogy for about nine years and decided to enter the names and photos I have accumulated in the process. If you see anything wrong, feel free to let me know. I'm just trying to preserve the names/dates as best as possible and I hope that it helps someone else out someday. I am willing to transfer as long as they are not my ancestor.

Keep searching and never give up on that one little bit of info that will piece it all together.

Hi Melissa!
I have a copy of a map from Knox Twp from 1871. In the diagram of the town of New Somerset there is a blue section that says cemetery in Sections 80 & 81. Do you know if it still exists? I can't find a reference to it other than this map. I am a descendant of Peter & Susan Pegg Wilson through George and Angeline Groves Wilson. Thanks!

Great photo of the Wilson headstone! I am a great grandson of John Wilson. I wonder if the small headstone could be that of his brother, James G. Wilson, killed in the war at age 22? He is buried in that cemetery I believe. Let me know,

Pine Grove Cemetery
Melissa, I see that you took the picture for this cemetery. Do you know the area well? I am about 5 hours away from there. I have heard this is a very small town (Hammondsville) Is this the only cemetery in the town?

Mumpers @ Sugar Grove
In June of 2010, you graciously placed a headstone photo for Henry Raymond Mumper (Find A Grave Memorial# 17327369) at Sugar Grove Cemetery. On the stone there appears to be a small, hinged cover; likely covering a photo of Henry and Helen. If you are back in that area again, would you consider opening the door and taking a photo of the contents? I'll formally request it if you obtain it. Thanks for the original pic and for considering this request.

Andrew Brown
Andrew Brown headstone in Crooksville Cemetery reads 1839-1921. Per Brown family Bible records Andrew was born 15 Mar 1839. His d. certificate gives birthdate as 22 Apr 1840 aged 80 years 5 months 22 days which calculates to birth year of 1841. Census records point to birth year of 1839.
There is a discrepancy between the death record and other sources.

Maffett photos
Melissa - thank you so much for getting James Maffett's headstone photo AND for going the extra mile to take the other family members buried near him. It really helped me fill in some gaps on my family tree. I really appreciate your efforts. Thanks !!!!!!
