Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born Annabelle Mary Henderson w/o Jesse Rupert (Columbiana County) and d/o John Cassell Henderson born Newport, Kentucky and Mary Beaton Jenkins born Glasgow, Scotland. Jesse Rupert is s/o J Vernon Rupert born Columbiana Co, Ohio and Mary Paden.

Only paternal roots in America, I follow a path to Fairfax Co Virginia (grandmother's name Pritchartt).

Some interesting facts discovered about my family:
Henderson, Nevada named after my group.
The Hendersons still operate the oldest family owned Drug Store in America to date called "Henderson's Drug Store" founded 1841 by Osborne Henderson in Glasgow, Howard Co Missouri. The oldest Henderson in my group, lived to be 104, Dr. Joseph Lewis Henderson as did his sister.

I have no biological connection to Ohio and
will transfer any memorial in Columbiana/Mahoning Co Ohio to persons with interest.
I check and work on this daily, update edits and will respond to email/corrections, etc promptly. Please note as I have posted many memorials from the cemetery index volumes, Audrey Allison has brought them to life by walking the cemeteries, photographing and posting headstones to thousands of the memorials. It is a joint effort by many.

To all who so righteously remind us the primary purpose of Find a Grave is "GRAVE REGISTRATION", and then "boringly" recite in your bio the FAG rules... yes we get it! To the group I work with, (look at my friend's list) it is a mere "starting point" as we all work together, share, and seek to know more about the folks, what they looked like and where they lived as we "register their graves". All of us will go to great lenghts to find out more!. .. to sum this up they are "NOT JUST A NAME ON THE A STONE"!

Currently 4/3/2014 working on Moultrie Chapel Cemetery in West Twp Columiana Ohio

Yes, we were waiting for the memorial creator to correct Mr. Douglass' last name. I'll delete mine now.

Anne, I have connected John to his parents. Thank you for the information. I am back working on the Coblentzes again. I have found a lost Mahoning County Coblentz family. Jacob and Sarah Coblentz lived in Springfield Twp in 1850 and 1860. They moved to Huntington Co. IN. They had 12 children and are now reunited because of findagrave. Jacob Coblentz 36744443. This Jacob Coblentz was the son of Jacob Coblentz who was the brother of my John Coblentz who is buried in Mount Olivet or Old Springfield. Too many Johns and Jacobs. Anyway they are all connected on findagrave now. Thank you for all of you help. Jane from MI

Elizabeth/John Flickinger
I've thought about the inscription listed on the gravestone for Elizabeth. I believe it's a shared gravestone for both John and her. John died in 1839. They married in 1816 while Elizabeth was 15 years old and John approximately 26. I believe the inscription was added after Elizabeth's death to commemorate that she had been about 30 yrs without him. The 59 years etc. was her age at her death. D. EF is obviously her initials. I think the four letters are the initials of a sentiment added about the fact that John and Elizabeth are finally together.

If you could supply me with the name of someone responsible for the grave registration records, I would like to find out who were listed as John's parents. I believe them to be Christian and Anna Flickinger. I need that information for admission to the Sons of the American Revolution. As for the John Flickinger listed as 1821-95, that's their son, John. I have a listing of their children and he's on it.

Sorry to be a bother, but I would definitely owe you one if you can help get this information. Thanks,

Elizabeth Bernhart Flickinger/John Flickinger
My name is Steve Flickinger. John Flickinger is my 3x great grandfather and Elizabeth is my 3x great grandmother. I was hoping that a new picture could be taken of this gravestone so I try to read the inscription. My best information is that Elizabeth and John were married in 1816. Her birth year is 1801 and John's is 1790. John died in 1839 and Elizabeth in 1861. So the inscription is probably 49 years. Thanks so much. I live in southern Ohio so a trip is about four hours. I also have other relatives in the cemetery. Christian Flickinger 1762-1828. He is a Revolutionary War veteran and he is my 4x great grandfather. His wife's name is Anna. They were married in 1783. I would really appreciate if that grave could be located. Thanks again. Your help is much appreciated.

Thank you for the Galveston Daily News obituary on him. The addition to his bio took him from ordinary to extraordinary! I am now curious about his illustrations in Texas Siftings and any other publication. Hopefully others will be as well.

Lehman Family
I had the old Lehman family photo album from the 1800's. There was a Dr. Charles Lehman, who lived in Kansas that was working on the Lehman family, so I gave it to him. He died of cancer shortly after that. I found out he never had any children to hand this album to, so who knows what happen to it. All of the photo's in it were identified. It belonged to Jonas & Rebecca (Lehman) Cullar. It was given to me by their granddaughter.

Stone photos in the Columbiana Cemetery
Hi Anne,

Thank you so much for all the stone photos you took in the Columbiana Cemetery. And thanks for looking for those that are now missing - at least we now know where they are buried.

It's such important work capturing the images of those tombstones. They are obviously fading away.

Thanks again,

Here is what I have listed under John Lockard's memorial. (John & his wife are buried in the same plot with Anna Needham.)
"In 1880 he (John Lockard) is married (1871),35, and living in Clinton twp, Lawrence Co,PA working as a miner with his wife, Mary and a "daughter" Annie who is born 1869, (and on her death record, she says that her father is John Groves, a neighbor in 1880 who is actually her grandfather) so she is John's step-daughter."
I would imagine Anna was illegitimate and that's why she took her grandfather's name and then later her step-father's.

Anna's mother was married to John Lockard who had no children of his own. Apparently Anna considered herself his daughter and took his name.
