Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have enjoyed genealogy as a hobby (my family says addiction) for over 30 years. Apparently I inherited this interest from both sides of my family. My paternal great-grandmother was left motherless at age 18 months and raised by a foster family. After she married, she was committed to learning all she could about her birth family, passing this interest to her daughter and granddaughters. I was very fortunate to have access to their records to build on when I began my own research. My maternal grandmother was a source of inspiration and encouragement until her death at age 92. Her correspondence with family members provided me with many clues to help research our family.

I photographed all of Goodrich Cemetery in Linn County, KS, and parts of other local cemeteries, but most of the memorials I've posted are for family members. If you copy a personal family photo that I've posted, please give credit. This gives other researchers a reference if they have questions. If you have additional info or are related, I would love to hear from you. Thank you to all who have taken the time to add flowers and photos.

Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear.

Blue Rock Baptist Cemetery
Blue Rock Baptist Cemetery is located on County Highway 79, Wion Ridge Road. Blue Rock Cemetery is located on Stacker Rd. Both are in Muskingum County, Ohio. Theses two cemeteries are located miles apart and the Muskingum River is between them. The Blue Rock Cemetery was not listed on Find-a-Grave. It is a small cemetery, well kept and located next to the county road. All the stones in this cemetery have been photographed by me. Not sure where Mr. Weller received his information. In looking for my ancestors, which are buried here, I was having a difficult time finding them until I ran across this cemetery and researched it by nearby neighbors. Thanks!

I have moved my better picture to the memorial by Glenda, However there was a 3rd memorial created in Feb 2014.
I wanted to bring this to your attention since you are on my case, So are you going to check every memorial of mine? Seems like I get Policed by certain people, But I must say I do not on my Rump creating memorials like most, my memorials come from Pictures I go out and take.
After I am done with these other 40 thousand pictures I have to list, I will never take another picture again, It is not worth all the grief and complaints I get, I do get a lot of appreciative response but I do get a lot who just have it out for me.

Big Dave
