RE: FAG # 157010332
Following up. I've now created the "new" cemetery on F.A.G. and its name "Sanders Cemetery (Fairfield Twp)" now shows up on Rachel Ann's memorial. Thanks again.

RE: FAG # 157010332
Thanks for your message about the error on my memorial for Rachel Ann Banks Sanders. It took me a while this morning to understand what happened. The Sanders Cemetery you're talking about (pp 407-408 of McBride) is in New Market Twp. The Sanders Cemetery that Rachel Ann Banks Sanders is buried in is the one in Fairfield Twp. So the page number I cited (167) was correct all along. She's listed on that page as "SANDERS, Rachel Ann, wife of John M., d. Nov. 3, 1848, a. 28-6-17." Hers is the _only_ tombstone the McBrides found in that cemetery. Unfortunately, on F.A.G., there's nothing on the page for the New Market Sanders Cemetery telling what township it is in, so I didn't realize it wasn't the correct Sanders Cemetery. What I'll need to do is to create a "new" Sanders Cemetery on F.A.G. and "move" Rachel Ann's memorial to it. Your help is much appreciated.

All edits should be sent through edit request since I no longer manage any of the memorials I have created.

I heard back from the genealogy library in Columbus, and this Matilda Mitchell is not the one you think she is. I entered some information in her bio.

Frances Tener is my 4th-great grandmother. I do not transfer direct ancestors, but will be glad to add any information you wish to display. I am a descendant through her son Isaac.

Correct and thank you. I have passed your information on to the photo requester.

Hi Bill,
I wish I did have a photo of the marker. This listing came from a transcription which could have been based on markers in the cemetery at the time or possibly based on records, I do not know. Please put in a request for the photo and hopefully someone who lives nearby will be able to get a photo for you. Cashie

RE: Jacob Ice
That came from Jacob's first marriage listed both his parents and her parents.

Hi, Bill. My info comes from census records, marriage records and family records. Jacob married Mary S. Martin in 1870; after her death, he married Rachel Fisher in 1881. (Rosanna Price in your message is his mother, not his wife.) Are you related as well? Let me know if I can help in any way. Take care.
