Hi Joanne!
Hello there!

Obviously, I don't check my Find A Grave email often. :-) Hope you are doing well. I will be glad to share all I have with you and your niece regarding our family history. The more I delve into G'ma Hattie's family the sadder I become. She really had a rough start to her life. I have been unable to locate her parents' headstones - I doubt there are any, since the family was so poor. According to G'ma's dad's death certificate, his burial was in Floral Grove Cemetery outside West Unity. However, I have searched the cemetery time and time again with no luck. He had several babies (with his 2nd wife)who passed away very young - their certs also state Floral Grove. This is a fun site - it helps me keep track of my research. :-) Take care!
