Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a genealogy enthusiast, a Civil War & U.S. military history buff and have always had a fascination with cemeteries. I'm also a USAF veteran of the Persian Gulf War and a second generation hillbilly (Kentucky).

I really enjoy being a Photo Volunteer and have found the Find-A-Grave experience to be very rewarding! 99.999% of the folks are very helpful and pleasant, but boy... I have run into a few square doughnuts out there!

My current Find-A-Grave projects are locating graves and updating existing memorials for members of two of my great-great-grandfather's Civil War regiments (23rd Kentucky and 28th Ohio Infantries, both Union). I appreciate all of the cooperation I'm receiving from my fellow gravers! I'm also helping to clean up the "Autograver" mess at Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Most of my memorials are family, but I do enter military veterans and other graves that may catch my eye from time to time. If I have a memorial of a relative or friend of yours, send me a transfer request by way of a SAC. I don't follow FAG's transfer guidelines as if they were the Ten Commandments like some folks do. If you have ever refused to transfer the memorial of a relative to someone - shame on you. That's just plain mean.

Please feel free to use my grave marker photos for your personal use.

Apologize
I apologize Rob, used my iPhone app at the cemetery and didn't notice the claim. I won't be going to Evergreen anymore.

John & Louisa Miller
Thank you so much for your work on John and Louisa's graves! I was surprised at how fast you posted them and really touched that you added Louisa and transferred management to me. I hadn't even begun to look for her yet.

Thank you again,
Ann

RE: CO K 193 REGT
Rob- My records show that Hector & Lulu are numbers 7&8 in sec. 23 lot 102. According to a family story that my uncle who is still living, told me- Hector Gerber did not want to be buried by "Aunt" Maud Sheppard Sanford because they did not get along. My uncle thought he was buried on a hill in Evergreen after they moved him. Of course you know how family stories go.

RE: CO K 193 REGT
Thanks- from my info they are numbers 7 & 8 in that Sec & Lot. My dad's brother who is still living told me he thought Hector Gerber was moved to a section on a hill because he didn't get along with "Aunt" Maud Sheppard Sanford & didn't want to be buried by her. You know how family stories go. Pam

RE: CO K 193 REGT
Hi Rob- Since you seem to know a lot about Evergreen I thought I would ask you a question about John Ingles' daughter, Mary R. Jones. Her Sec is 23 Lot 102. From seeing the records, I now know where my great grandparents are buried along with other relatives, but here's the question. Looking on the alpha list for Lulu Gerber- my great grandmother- it shows Hector being removed. How do I locate where in the cemetery he is? His brother is named right below in the alpha list but no lot or sec number either. You may answer through my e mail:hochps@yahoo.com. Also if I can be of any help to you in locating relatives let me know. Pam

RE: Found IT
Hi Rob- Thanks for the last 2 messages showing the Section & Lot numbers for the Ingles. From my records, I have John Ingles being born in Scotland. (the husband) to Florence. I have been able to get their marriage records, plus census also along with other death records showing this. I agree that the death date you gave me is correct since the 1880 census shows Florence being a widow & the 1890 Civil War Pension records also show that too. Again thanks for all your hard work.

Thanks Rob for posting the picture of my gggg grandfather's headstone. I have his b- date but have not located his death. I think it was about 1879-1880. I too love history as does my 15 yr. old grandson. My youngest son was in the Marines & served 2 tours in Iraq. Congrats to you both. I also was able to prove my dad's side (my maiden name) back to 1810 & qualify as being part of the 1st families of Hamilton County. Without people like you doing the work you do we would not be able to find our family histories. Thank you again. Pam- Cincinnati

Thank you!
Thanks, Rob. I assume there was no stone for Mary, etc.--just an area? I appreciate your going out there to investigate! Best regards.
