Bio and Links
I have no interest in managing memorials except for my own family. I've added memorials, especially from my home town, in hopes they are waiting for family,friends or who ever knows about the person and can do a bio or take edit control of them from me. I will be happy to transfer to any relative no matter how distant, trusting that you intend to add additional information.

If you send edits please provide the data to support your request, as the memorial needs to be accurate for a future family researcher. Thanks!
Dear Ancestor

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
neglected and alone
The name and date are chiseled out
on polished, marbled stone
It reaches out to all who care
It is too late to mourn
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
in flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
one hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot,
and come to visit you.

- Mary Gray-Wann

RE: Ida Larrison #138205979
Hi-tried to email you but it didn't go through.
If you look at Memorial #88312158 I believe it is Ida and Emmett's daughter. She is buried in the same county Ida Tiffany was born in in OH. Also found Emmett with parents on NY census with mom listed as Emily Larrison. Hope that helps.

RE: German/Craney Family Edits
Thank you for adding the edits. My interest is in the German/Cooper line. Elizabeth and James were only married from 1930 to 1934.

I believe that James Craney and James Crany are the same. Most of the census information is spelled Craney, in the 1920 census James last name is spelled Crany.

Thanks again

William Williamson
A huge bunch of thank yous!!! I came across a tiny note in my paperwork that says William Williamson is the brother to John Milton Williamson. John Milton is my GG Grandfather and I have not been able to find any info on him. This lead may be the break I need. I actually have several relatives at Rosehill. Do you live in Clark?

Again, mounds of appreciation.

I would love the memorials, there should also be sisters Isabelle Ware 1859-1961. and Jane K Johnson 1850-1941 (wed Carl Johnson).

RE: Minnie Fontaine #133817665
Thanks for trying. At any rate, I think you're quite correct. But the multiple Minnie's are definitely confusing and somewhat mysterious. I may be in Clark in May myself. Maybe we'll run into one another.

Happy Holidays to you and yours also.

RE: Minnie Fontaine #133817665

Sounds like you're right. I've been going round and round about Minnie. There is another Minnie Fountaine buried in St. Thomas Cem. in Crocker. Originally I thought that that Minnie was actually the one at Rose Hill, since there is no marker at Crocker. But I've been persuaded that both are valid. According to the Rose Hill list online, the last name of Minnie, as well as that of John & Arline is "Fountaine", and there are no Fontaines in the whole cemetery. And according to my research, there is yet another Minnie Fountaine in Clark Co., also born in 1906, but this one married into the name. I have no idea where she fits in. So, if you get a chance to clear this up, that would be great. I'll be anxious to hear what you find out.

RE: Fred R Schlagel # 133461353 edit request
Thanks for the reply. No, your documentation is better than mine. Leave it at Dec., 1882.

RE: John W. Kleinmann
Okay but I would rather you take them. Same surname which is not a Smith and Jones type, so there is a good chance there is a connection. AND if someone else stumbles on them and asks you for a transfer, you can always give them away. Right? Better to be safe then sorry.
