RE: Tinkers Creek Cemetery
Interested in the next message that seems to indicate you were looking for Peter Crosson. Is this Peter Crosson of Kane, PA? If so this is a direct ancestor of mine and I have pretty detailed info on the Crosson family. Was in touch with a Crosson relative in NY a few years back.

Tinkers Creek Cemetery
We are trying to locate descendents of those buried in Tinkers Creek. We are trying to get the cemetery on the national register of historic sites. Please contact me at for more information.
Also am revising and updating the Independence Township Cemetery book and notice I have no Minors listed in the 2009 edition. Who do you have buried there and dates and brief bio of your ancestors. Eventually we want to have headstones for everyone who was buried there.

Please contact me.

Timons-Timmons - Brecksville
Hi Anita,
The reason I used 1846 as the death date for Thomas Timmons is because I found him on the tax lists in Brecksville through 1846. From 1824 through 1834 he is shown as the owner then in 1838 it shows Heirs of Thomas Timmons so not sure if he died and left the land to heirs? I found Mary Timmons on only one tax list in 1824. I do not know where their stone is in relation to the road but it is a very small cemetery and should be fairly easy to find. I'm not sure if I can get back there any time soon but can try and let you know. Can you send me an email with any other info. to :

Thanks much,

Mary Timmons #97610654
I found this info. on ancestry:

Excerpt from the history of Brecksville, Cuyahoga County, Ohio:
“Granny TIMMONS,” Mrs. Mary TIMMONS, with her son Tommy came from Pennsylvania early in 1812 and made her home in the eastern part of the township, near the Cuyahoga river. She purchased quite a large tract of land and gave the ground for the Eastern cemetery to the township. Her husband was Thomas TIMMONS..
I changed their last name from "Timong" to Timmons
I believe they are the same people as mentioned in the article. I'm thinking Thomas that she is buried with may be her son?
Let me know what you think.

RE: photo of George Brawley
Hi Anita,

No, I don't know when or who has cleaned many of the stones in this cemetery.

The cemetery is located downtown in the small town of Phoenix and is adjacent to the museum and the high school. It has a rustic and natural look and feel about it which is what I like about all of the small cemeteries here in this area. It's kept clean, the grass is kept mowed and the leaves raked.

Not too long ago I added some new photos of the cemetery, you can see them if you look at the cemetery page. They are a nice representation of what you would see if you were able to visit.

I'm happy to have been able to take an updated photo of your family member.

William Moses
Hello Anita. You contributed a good deal of information about William Moses (b. 1782, d 1842) and his wife Phebe Miner Moses (b. 1785, d. 1873) both buried at the Tinkers Creek Cemetery in Cuyahoga County, Ohio.

You list their four children as Elnora, Emily, John, and Jeptha.

I am trying to find the ancestor of Maria Moses (b. 1823 in Cuyahoga County, Ohio) and her brother Samuel (b. about 1832 in Ohio); another brother may be Everest or Everett Moses (b. abt 1827 in Ohio). The sibling trio migrated westward more-or-less together after Maria's marriage to Amzi Miller in 1843, ending up in Brown County, Illinois for the 1850 and 1860 censuses.

Is there any possibility of these children fitting into this family? Or is there any information about William Moses' siblings that may shed light on possible connections?

Thank you.

Rebecca Ramey
Hi, I noticed your edit to Jewett and Rebecca Parmiter. I will update them, but my records show that Rebecca's maiden name was spelled Ramey. I have a marriage record to show this. I was also wondering if Jewett and Rebecca were part of your family tree? They are my GG Grandparents. Where did you find the records to show where they were buried?

Sorry so many many questions :)

Thanks Steve

You are very welcome. I do the best I can. It all depends on the time of day/lighting how well the pictures will turn out. I'm always happy to be of service and to help any way I can.

The information posted is as was in the newspaper. It you check the second day you will see that the spelling of Margaret's last name was corrected.
Since I have the newspaper listed, I will leave the spelling as was originally printed. Sorry.

Hi Anita,

I see you left a flower & note on John L.Welter's memorial #9190868. You may have sent me a correction for Margaret Arelt....I didn't look to see who sent the suggestion. Check out John Welter's memorial to find where Margaret, husband John and some of her siblings are buried.

RE: Thank you for Brawley photos, Amesville Cem.
You are very welcome. Some of the photos were not as good as I would like for them to be, but if I get a better day I may try to go back and retake a couple of them. Your directions were very helpful. I found the first stone just as I entered the cemetery next to the driveway area. From there your direction allowed me to know which of the real hard to read stones were which. If the photos were clearer you could make out portions of the names and or dates on the real hard to read stones. The stones were all in a row next to each other, except for Robert G. His was actually in line with the others, but probably 30yards away. I'm glad I was able to find them all for you.

I transferred ownership to you before I read the rest of your emails. So I can't make changes anymore so I'll leave that up to you.

I transferred all the Rathbuns I had. I figured they are all buried in the same section, so they must all be related somehow.

Okay, made the link with the husband as you requested. Are Benjamin and Cora his parents?

Anita, if they are related to you, I would be happy to transfer ownership.

Thanks for the appreciation for the work I've done at this cemetery. I have been so busy in August that I haven't been back to photograph anymore gravestones. I'm hoping to get going again this weekend. I've got to finish up Section B. I have about 12 rows to go in that section. It will take many, many years to get this cemetery done, but I just keep plugging away.
