Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been doing genealogy for a long time and enjoy it very much.
I am thankful for this sight because I've found photos of graves of my family and my husband's family that I might not been able to see.
Thank you for everyone's hard work on this site.
Most of my information comes from obituaries I have collected throughout my research or find online.
I will transfer those who are not family, just ask. I like family to be with family when possible. I notice on several occasions when I transferred family members, my entry was deleted, and theirs was put in. I don't care, but it's not right. I FORGIVE THE PARTIES I NOTICED CHANGE. When family is transferred to me, I leave the original, but add what I might want.

I started putting where I found obituaries, so people can search for the complete obituary and information.

To One in Sorrow

Let me come in
where you are weeping friend,
And let me take your hand.
I, who have known a sorrow
such as yours,
can understand.
Let me come in —
I would be very still beside you
in your grief;
I would not bid you
cease your weeping, friend,
Tears bring relief. Let me come in —
and hold your hand,
For I have known a sorrow
such as yours,
And understand.

—Grace Noll Crowell

There is hardly anything in the world
that some man cannot make a little worse
and sell a little cheaper,
and the people who consider price
only are this man's lawful prey.

—John Ruskin


Quote from Findagrave: "The goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. THE ULTIMATE GOAL SHOULD BE TO HAVE MEANINGFUL, ACCURATE MEMORIALS THAT HONOR THOSE WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY, REGARDLESS OF WHO CREATED THE MEMORIAL OR WHO MAINTAINS IT."


ABOUT READING ILLEGIBLE HEADSTONES- from MOCAVO Genealogy Newsletter

The two best friends you have for reading gravestones are water, and a reflective surface, such as a mirror. I routinely bring a couple of bottles of water in my bag when I visit a cemetery. often the simple act of putting some water on the stone makes some of the etched words easier to read. I’ve even brought out letters and numbers that were completely illegible.

A mirror or other highly reflective surface works well also. This tool is best used on a bright, sunny day. Use the mirror to reflect light across the face of the stone. The shadows it creates may illuminated the illegible inscription. I’ve also used photographer’s reflectors to achieve the same effect. They are flexible and as they are not made of glass, there is no risk or dangerous breakage if you drop them. You can get them inexpensively through photo supply stores or Amazon

~ Those we love don't go away, They walk beside us every day, Unseen, unheard, but always near,


What We Keep In Memory Is Ours Forever

Leslie & Lucinda Frederick
Are you related to Leslie & Lucinda Frederick? I would be glad to transfer them to you. Sherman Frederick was a long time neighbor of my grandmothers.

RE: The Sparrow Family
I have often seen Elias labeled as the son of John Templeton Sparrow and Mahala "Hale" Kelly/Kelley. It is an error. Elias was born about 1779 and died about 1859. He couldn't be a son of this Sparrow family as John wasn't born until 1807 and Mahala 1808. The confusion comes from the fact that John and Mahala had a son named Elias who was born 13 June 1842 in Ohio.

I have researched this family and am willing to share whatever research I have. Please e-mail me at laurie_biswell1971@outlook.com and let me know where to send the information and in what form you would like to have it sent in (GEDcom, pdf, etc.)

Gina;
Thank you. I have been meaning to get these bios posted as I do have them in my files. What I am looking for the most is my Lawyer family from Stark County, Ohio that lived in Whiteside for a time.
Mary Elizabeth? Lawyer born 1837, Stark County, Ohio was my G-G-Grandfather's sister. She was married to Louis Wetzel, March 25, 1858, Sterling, Whiteside, ILL.

Margaret Deets
Gina:
Thank you for the information. I do have all of that in my files except for Margaret Reece being born in Baltimore. Just one question, where exactly is Margaret's place of birth in "Marsalow", Ohio?
Google has no such place. I have Margaret born in Summit County, Ohio.
