I live in Rome, NY and have been researching my family tree since 2007. I have found many interesting and many confusing things! Strangely enough I am intrigued by cemeteries!

Let me know if I can help you find anything in this area!

RE: Crim Smith
Yes I use My ex-husband was a Smith. I did (or tried to) the Smith's for my children and jst got sorta carried away. I was only able to trace them back to Cris father who married Polly Edwards in Crab Orchard, Ky. in 1814. There is some speculation about Crim, although I never heard my husband or his father or any of the other Smith family ever mention Crim. There are different viewpoints about where he is buried. Some think he is buried by his wife just up the road from me in Lincoln Co., Ky. others that he died in Illinois on his way home from the war due to sickness. His military record says he "did not survive the war". He has no tombstone by or near his wife, yet she has a nice monument. I believe if he was buried there he would have a monument as well. One of the Smith descendants whom I have spoken with on the phone (whose name is "Crim" also) said family folklore was that he suffered from epileptic Seizures and was a victim of "tongue swallowing" during the seizures and that his brother always slept by him during the war, but that on that particular night his brother wasn't sleeping near him and he had a seizure and died. I am of the belief that he is buried in Illinois where he supposedly died and even the date on the stone is esactly one year off from the date his service papers said he died, I still think this is his grave, because the monuments were put up many years after the Civilo War. Where in the line rom Crim do you descend. My husband's grandfather was Crim's son William Monroe.

RE: Schneible
Thank you so much Brenda. I'll check and see if there are other Schneible family that I'm missing.
