Find a Grave ID


I was born in Ohio and moved out to California in 1970 and have lived here ever since.

I started genealogy about 12 years ago and have enjoyed "finding my roots." I am a member of the California, Ohio and Indiana Genealogy Societies, and local chapters of the DAR and Mayflower Societies. I have found that lineage society membership is a great way to personalize genealogy and get my family interested in our history.

I love taking genealogy classes and am finally starting to get organized...Whenever I travel I find myself visiting cemeteries and local history societies and libraries. I would encourage anyone who loves genealogy to make his or her way to the Mormon Family History Library in Salt Lake City and Allen County Library in Fort Wayne, IN.

I just joined "Find a Grave", and hope I will be able to make a contribution.

Some of my families came to Ohio in the early 1800's:
Butler County: SHARP, THOMPSON
Clinton County: BOWERS
Columbiana and Trumbull Counties: IRWIN, THOMPSON, SMITH, CHARTERS, BATES

In the 1900's, a later generation of the SHARP family moved to Ashtabula County from Indiana, and the CHARTERS family came to Ashtabula County from Pennsylvania.

Henry and Delaware Counties: SHARP, THOMPSON, BOWERS, STRADLING
