Bio and Links
Bio Photo Historian, author and genealogist with advanced experience in Ohio. Based in Baltimore.

Author of the following titles (as Stuart J Koblentz) from Arcadia Publishing:

Images of America, Marion (2004)
Images of America, Marion County (2007)
Images of America, Upper Arlington (2008)
Images of America, The Ohio State University Neighborhoods (2009)
(And other titles as a "ghost" author for the credited author)

Past president of the Marion County Historical Society, Marion, Ohio.

IMPORTANT: Edits should be sent through the Find A Grave listing using the edit tabs. I verify all updates before making the change. If there is not enough information for me to verify your edits, I may ask for your sources. I am not doing this to be a pain, but I have received edits from people who *think* that they have one person, when in fact they don't.

I am happy to transfer people that I have added, if am not descended from that person.

SUPER IMPORTANT: I have had the misfortune to encounter some Find A Grave members who are nothing but bullies, and are emboldened by because they are not face to face with the people they are shoving around. I have no problem reporting such people to Find A Grave and Ancestry's Executive Action Team in Provo, and encourage you to do the same if you encounter such a gorgon. If you are feeling mistreated, and cannot work your differences out, or if you do not feel safe because of threats, report the abuse. You do not have to put up with it.

RE: Palaski
I just added the photo to his wife -- sorry I missed that. I added memorials for Robert A Palaski and Donald Palaski. The three markers were in a row. Let me know if you would like me to transfer the two memorials to you.

Samuel and Almira Scriber Photos

You added photos of Samuel (146714962) and Almira (146803230) Scribner to their memorials. I am very curious where you obtained these photos. Are you a descendant of the Scribner family? One of their daughters, Lucy (69631594) married Strother Hord an ancestor of mine. I have a remarkable album of the Scribner family however, most of the photos do not contain any names. Lucy's photo was found in this album. Is it possible that you could identify some of these photos or know someone who may be able to help? If so I will make the album available to you.

Your profile doesn't have a personal email address and your website link takes me to some crazy Japanese beauty treatment site! Nice cover.

Vital Records in Ohio
Thanks for explaining the vital records. I had not investigated them to that extent, and it appears you are far more experienced in the field of genealogy than I. I usually depend on the vital records for my info over what is on the gravestone. I don't know which is more accurate without a third source.
As you may have guessed by now, I am attempting to expand the Monnett family history (my paternal Great-great-grandmother was a Monnett) from a small start given to me years ago added in with Orra E. Monnette's "Monnett Family Genealogy" of 1911 and several additions from the web.
My main interest, however is in the Kennedy family of north central Ohio that migrated from central Pennsylvania in 1832.

Stu, Thanks for those suggestions re Olive Clark. I've entered most of them. But I am not sure who the parents are. Could you send me their memorial numbers? Thanks. Nathan

Mahaffeys In Marion, Ohio
Hi, Stu. I also took photos of the headstones for Geddes M. (1891-1935) and Hazel M.(1893-1983) Mahaffey if you want to make memorial pages for them.
