Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am crazy about the zinc monuments that were made by "Monumental Bronze" in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Currently, I am trying to spot as many as I can at the cemeteries in our part of the state!

We don't have family in Central Ohio, so we are enjoying doing local genealogy for the connection. I am currently researching the Swetland family (mainly from Morrow and Logan Counties, Ohio).

I have also spent years studying the French Resistance during WWII and am currently trying to locate and create memorials for many Resistance members.

Hi, if you need me to remove anymore pictures, I will. The reason I am so interested in this gentleman is because my grandmother was from Latrobe PA. Her maiden name was "Colecchi".

RE: E.C. Stainsky
Sorry, no we are not related to the Stainsky's. My husband served in the Navy and was a friend of Don Stainsky, Eugene's son and we don't really know any of the family. Hopefully you might be able to find one. Sorry Penny

Ernest Swinburn--Columbia Cemetery
I walked the entire cemetery and could not find a marker or headstone for Ernest. There are many old broken or illegible headstones for this cemetery. Please consider removing your request.

Hi, my name is Damon and I did a photo request for Travis Hodges and there was a marker of his parents. I cleaned it up and took a photo. Would you like me to post it on Travis memorial or if you want to make a memorial for them. Just let me know.

Done! I don't know why I didn't do that in the first place. I usually do post to couples but I missed on them. Ellen Headington
