Bio

I joined Find-A-Grave to "pay forward" the help I have received from others.

Most of the cemeteries, in Defiance and Williams County Ohio, have been read/walked and indexed. I would be willing to look up and send information if requested. I am most knowledgeable about the cemeteries in Farmer Twp. and Washington Twp., Defiance County; and for St. Joseph Twp., Springfield Twp. and Pulaski Twp., in Williams County.

OF INTEREST to others may be the link to the Williams County Ohio Public Library (WCPL) obituary index. Anyone who has died in the Williams County, Ohio area since 1870 is most likely on the index. Many Defiance County, Ohio obituaries were included in the Williams County newspapers. I suggest searching by using the last name only. Keep in mind the spellings may vary, so try several options if you do not get results on the first search. If a name is listed more than once, it is because an obit was published in more than one local paper. Not all of the papers have been added, so check back often to see if there is a new entry for one of your Ancestors.

You can request obits online and they will be sent by email.
