Please understand that it is my quest to find ancestors and be as effective a historian, or custodian of their memory, as possible in an effort to preserve what I can. Please contact me if you have or know of additional details or the ever sought-after photos and documents!
Information has been carefully researched and transcribed. Needless to say, there is always an incomplete picture; new facts are discovered and additions must be made or a need for corrections arises. For example, information, such as birthdates, that have been calculated from headstone engravings (which is not the most accurate means).
Please do not hesitate to contact me. The goal is again to be as complete and accurate to the history and memory of all. Any assistance is appreciated!
It is important to note that Mahoning County Ohio was formed from parts of Trumbull and Columbiana Counties Ohio on March 1, 1846 so any dates prior to that are actually found in their respective County records.
Ormsby I hope you don't mind I added a photo to this site. If you wish me to remove it I will. I usually don't do this but it is such a pretty picture of the monument and surroundings I wanted to share it.
Thank you for your contribution to Find A Grave. This is a great site that puts a physical and tangible aspect to our family histories. I would like to ask if you would consider transferring L. (Lewis) Jackson Bickel #63997873, and Katherine W. (Wilhelmina) Bickel #63997872 to me. They are my great grandparents. I would like to write bios and link some family connections. They had 10 children, who are all gone now, so there are a lot of family members who may benefit from these memorials.
Abigail Weaver Johnson I think some information on her death certificate could be inaccurate...I believe her father John was born in PA and her mother was Mary Sidels born in PA. You do mention in your note that her obituary states her interment is in Oaklawn Mausoleum. Do you have a copy of her obituary? I would be very interested in seeing it. Find a Grave # 63933513 Thank You, Jean
Jackson Cemetery I have finished photographing Jackson Cemetery. I've been asked by a member of our local O.G.S to complete all cemeteries in Jackson for the purpose of publishing a Tombstones of North Jackson book. It will take some time to accomplish this but when it's complete I'd like permission to give credit to you for your contribution to the cemetery.
I started taking images in the Fall of 2010. I have cleaned and photographed the entire cemetery. It is my goal to make Jackson a place where information is available for those who search for their ancestors.
Thomas family Hi, I am doing some work on the Thomas Family here in Hancock co Ohio. Came across a daughter of Lindsey Orlen and Sarah Jane (Williams) Phillips. but when I found them they already had a daughter Isabelle born the year before. Just had to wonder if one of us have the wrong Isabelle linked to the wrong parents...
