I became involved in genealogy when my oldest child needed one last Boy Scout Badge and Family History seemed easy. I called my aunt who was the keeper of my dad's family "flame" to get some information. My son got his badge and I got hooked, (now I'm the keeper of that "flame") That was about 40 years ago. I am a widow now with 4 children and 11 grandchildren and several great grandchildren. The photo was taken when I was 18, so don't let it throw you. I hope my children will someday be interested. I believe it is important to keep a record of where our ancestors are buried ( but please ask permission to use my photo's) and this is just the place. Thanks. (I have recently had a Stroke, so please forgive my slowness.) Robin|

I sent you an email regarding Rhuel and Elizabeth Phillips.
|Russell Clemings||RE: Rhine Cemetery, Gallia County OH|
Thanks. I found it Saturday, but it was too overgrown to see much. I suspect the stones are buried under a lot of leaves at this point.
I took a GPS reading at the edge of the site; perhaps you will want to add it to the info page to help people find it:
Latitude: 38.85308673 N
Longitude: 82.30868119 W
|Diane Vinson-Childers||Transfer of Ollie Steele|
Thankyou for transferring Ollie. She was my grandfathers sister. Thank you for your work.
|Grace (Cronin) Schmitt||RE: Jonathan C. Grove|
I tried to send you two edits, because I forgot to do it all in one, and Find A Grave didn't like it. Learned a lesson. Thank you for adding the parents.
|NZiyad||RE: Lee Combs|
Robin, I'm sorry to have disturbed (upset) you. I was not trying to be flippant when asking you to delete a memorial. Yes, I do check... I will not ask again, and please do not send any messages.

|Anonymous||David Devore Varian|
Trying to locate the grave site of
David Devore Varian in Pine Street Cemetery
in Gallia, Ohio.
Is his monument still there ?
|Russell Clemings||Rhine Cemetery, Gallia County OH|
You replied to my photo request for George Rhine a few years ago. Thank you.
I will be in that area next week and wanted to see if I could find the cemetery, whatever is left of it. However, I can't find it on the map using the description on the above page: "Located in Section 25 on the north side of 160 (old Route 35), just across from the junction of 588. There are broken stones and a footstone."
I can find 160 and it appears to be in the right section, and crosses a 35, but the only 588 I can find is several miles to the south of there and does not intersect 160. Both highways end up in Gallipolis.
Are you able to provide better directions?
|Mark and Julie||RE: Rupe & Rutherford|
Mark grandmother is a Rutherford and was born and raised in galia county. So we are as much direct related
|Brent Sweeny||RE: Frank Bell, memorial#82342246|
hello, Robin--thanks for your note.
I no longer see the details of the message I sent you, but I *believe* it concerned the year of Frank Bell's death (the memorial# in the subject line) as reported in his findagrave memorial. his memorial says 1919, but the official death record says 1918 (see below for a transcription).
ALSO, though he pretty consistently went by the name "Frank" throughout his life, according to his birth record, his birth name was 'Robert Francis Bell' (I can understand why he'd choose 'Frank' instead, though!)
