Came for the genealogy, stayed for the cemeteries. Family lines: Hammel, Smith, Martell and Jones, mostly of Pickaway, Fairfield and Columbiana Counties in Ohio. Kroner, Greiner, Holzberger and Gettle, mostly of southeast Indiana. I also have photos and documents through family connections to the Murray, Heffner, Kiger and Riegel families of Pickaway and Fairfield Counties in Ohio.

I operate two Facebook pages for the local history of Shanesville (now part of Sugarcreek) and Baltic, Ohio. I also handled most of the editing and writing of "Shanesville: 200 Years On The Hill", which was published in August 2014. If you need any help with ancestors in either of these two towns, I'd be happy to try to help. The Facebook pages can be found at:


I will consider sharing my photos with those who have the decency to ask. I may also have further information on the family names listed above, and am always happy to hear from distant relatives.

I've chosen not to display my email address for reasons of privacy and security. Please contact me via "suggest a correction" through the appropriate memorial or leave a message on my profile page. Thanks!
