Your Tombstone stands among the rest:
neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care
its too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One Hundred years ago
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot.
and come to visit you.

RE: Elijah Pomeroy 1736-1792
Hi Family member.
I think this man had given him a Burial Place but we do NOT know where Elijah was buried, that's why I have him unknown. I believe I have the accurate Memorial. Elijah is my 6th times G. Grandfather. I was doing research, i have been pulled in other directions for them moment hope to get back to Pomeroy's!! I am addicted to Genealogy, so sometimes I help others, and that is were I am right now :-)

RE: Broncaccio
The family was in Cleveland, OH from early 1900's. Do you know if anyone in the Broncaccio family has record of Arthur and Geraldine's marriage, maybe a family Bible entry? All I have is the newspaper listing for the license and Aunt Gerri's sister recollection of the marriage. Gerri's oldest son didn't know about the marriage; by the time I discovered the union Aunt Gerri's recall was not quite so good so I didn't pursue it with her. They were married about 1 year - 25 Oct 1941 to sometime before end of 1942. Arthur joined the Army 10 Feb 1942. Thank you for all you work on this great website.

RE: Broncaccio@Riverside Cem
No relations. My husband's paternal aunt was married for a very short time to Arthur Broncaccio. As far as I know, there were not children from this union. Aunt Geri, age 90+, had a stroke a few days ago, which prompted me to look again at her history, which lead to learning more about her 1st in-laws and I thought it proper to follow through with their memorials. Aunt Geri died today at 2:30 pm, as soon as I learn of her final resting place I will create a memorial for her and link them. As an amateur genealogist, I continue to be amazed that I learn more from the dead than the living!
Thanks for asking!

RE: Rebecca Sawyer
This is interesting. In court testimony in 1867, Aholiab said his wife was Rebecca Williams, not Llewellyn. But neither of them was particularly honest about their past. They lived in Michigan in the late 1850s, briefly in Pennsylvania, and in DC by 1862. They seem to have changed their names ca. 187. I will pursue the Oak Hill angle - it is possible that Aholiab had a cousin of the same name, though unlikely they were both in DC. An Aholiab Sawyer of an earlier generation also married a Rebecca.

RE: Sawyer family
Thank you. That is on
My information for his later life differs,
suggesting he and his wife died after 1900.

Evelyn Tompkins
I am so sorry, I requested edit to add the wrong John Tompkins as her spouse. She was married to John R. Tompkins 148131718, not John A. I cannot request another edit. I'm very sorry. Gail

RE: Schmenk family
I believe the trouble is due to:
1. Two marriages
2. Wives with similar names
It may have led to erroneous, overlapping entries in Find A Grave. Notice that the birth dates and death dates are nearly the same for both:

1st wife: Maria Theresia "Mary" (Jannings) Schmenk

2nd wife: Mary Ann (Fembert) Schmenk

Thank you for your offer to turn over the family profile. I am a family member, lived locally, and can update entries gradually with sourced information.

Hi OhioSearcher,

Thank you for helping to sort out the Meeks. I have been looking for them for a long time and was so happy to find your memorials. I appreciate your good work.

Jane Ann Tompkins
Thanks for checking - Jane Ann Thompkins was said to have married Isaac in 17 Nov 1836, and died in 1840. I can't find any record of her death yet, and I don't know if there were marriage records for that early date.

I'll keep searching.

Thank you so much for the transfers of Michael and Mary. My wife and I are currently sorting out the 1600 pictures we took over the past fours days on our latest cemetery trip through Wyandot County.
Blessings always, Rick
