|Sandi Litzenberg||RE: By the Way|
Hi Sarah.. I'm going to forward an email from the Ohio Preservation lady so you can read thru it and get a sense of where we need to start.. I'd like to get a few more of us and then have a meeting so we can all share what we've learned from the links and information we've gathered..
So in the meantime.. look over the links in the email and then as soon as we can get a few more people to join our 'group' we can all decide on a date and time to meet up. We have 3 so far.. I would like to have 6 or more so if you know of any or your friends or relative that would like to participate, by all means recruit them..
now sending the email to your 12cats addy..

I forgot to mention in my last message that I'm looking for fellow grave finder folks here in Williams County that might be interested in helping to create a Cemetery Preservation Society for our county.. I have been in contact with a woman from the Ohio Preservation Society, which is then broken down into counties and we don't have one here in Williams.. I'm not sure how many cemeteries you are familiar with around the area, but many of our oldest and smallest cemeteries are in pretty bad shape and we need to promote the restoration & preservation of these burial places before they disappear.. Is this something you would be interested in helping me to get started?? Or at least helping to lite a fire under the butts of the township trustees??.. I want to attend the Township Association meeting in Feb which will include reps from all 12 townships here in Williams county.. I have tons of links that the Ohio Preservation lady has sent to me on how to get started, what issues to address, cemetery law and many other helpful topics..

Whew.. I was hoping that I had caught you.. cuz there is nothing more frustrating than searching for a grave that isn't even located in the cemetery..

Thank you so much for the photo. Too bad the stone is so worn.
|Sandi Litzenberg||Your Claim on Catherine Mercer|
Hi Sarah.. I wanted to let you know that Catherine Mercer is NOT buried at Floral Grove Cemetery.. I found her and her husband Jacob at West Jefferson Cemetery. I didn't want you wasting your time at Floral Grove looking for her.. I will contact the creator of the memorials and let them know..
I hope I caught you before you left to go to the cemetery..
Have transferred Charles and his wife to you, family should have family.
