Any photos, bios and or other information that I have entered is avaialble for free use - no paid only websites. I would perfer that credit is given, but I put those materials and images here to be both saved for the future and to be used.
The web site offers date calculations for many of those little genealogical problems and more.
SO much of what is placed on Find A Grave is searchable, but in order to assist others in their research, I also use

Disasters strike us all, and it helps to put family moves into context when they abruptly move, relocate or - frankly - just disappear!

I also note to Find A Grave when I can find an applicable memorial.

Please take a look, it's an interesting site.
In the eastern United States you can often "discover" old cemeteries by the daffodils.

Daffodils are not a feast for deer, they multiply and spread on their own and were often the flower of choice to plant at gravesites.

And I love the sunny, bright daffodil, reminding me the long winter will soon be over and I can get out again to seek and document ancestors - both my own and for others living too distant to be there in person.

If I have "planted" a daffodil on a memorial, it is one which I have directly touched or made an addition.

My Find A Grave 'anniversary' date is 12 June 2007

Samuel Patton Rice - Grace Catherine Johnson

William Rice

Billy Gene Rice ????

Could this be Son of William Dan Rice.

The news paper O bit has Just William.

If this is our bunch Billy Gene Rice would fall under Samuel Patton Rice Sept 12 1906 "Ky" - Nov 7 1975 "Michigan" and Grace Catherine Johnson Sept 10 1910 Ky - Jan 18 1991 "Ohio"

I recall that Stella Rebold's stone was the only readable one. I took a general shot last year; not sure if I uploaded it though.

RE: REBOLD family in Mount Washington Cemetery
Gaye, I am glad I was able to help. I am not sure if the Emma listed with the other children is the same as Emma B. She died 9 years before Frank and maybe was buried in a single plot but was listed with the other children on their grave stone. I don't know if the single is Emma's because it is mostly buried but it is plot 27. The two graves are across the driveway from each other.
You can go to Mt. Washington Cemetery website and check their indexes. Search their name and you will also find a map of the cemetery at the bottom of the page.
Margaret died very young (childbirth ?) and maybe Albert remarried and is buried somewhere else. I checked Guardian Angel and Mt. Moriah Cemetery records and no Rebold is listed. Good luck with your search. If you need anything else, let me know.

Thanks Gaye! I see you are an early riser too! Lonia and Stanford were both sweet and kind and I am proud that they were my grandparents. Have a blessed day!

I am in here checking some of mom's pictures in New Salem and I see you put photo request in for Samuel Patton Rice. I do not see him in any of moms pictures.

I will be in Ky in the next month or so. I will go to our family cemetery and see if I can find him.

I think he might be in the other New Salem.
Mom said we will also go to it and look when I am up there.

Harrods - Cave Hill
In Section 34, Lot 266 (where a couple of your previous requests were) lie the three requested and already fulfilled (Walter, Ida, & Raymond), all of which were listed on one side of the monument. In addition, on the back side, which is headlined "Harrod" on one end and "Wood" on the other, lie Madolyn Toby Harrod Konopka (1920-2001), Florence Elizabeth Wood, and George Leach Wood. Above Mrs Konopka, it is inscribed "In memory of our Mother".

It appears Mrs K is the mother of the Harrods on the front side and, I'm purely guessing, Florence.

RE: Mary Edna Robinson Johnson

7729876 Sarah Johnson is in a row all by herself.
I will look at moms Pictures and see if maybe she missed any names when she put in pictures.

Mom said she almost missed her stone while she was out there

Mom says this family we are working on is probably some of the the people who have just blocks sticking up.

There has got to be a old list of people who are in this cemetery some where. Over the summer as I visit We will ask some of the family if they know anyone who might know.

Lutitia (Gregory) Bowling was a mid wife back then and no one seams to know where her records went.

Moms says she may have to buckle down and have to go to church at New Salem and ask some questions.

Harrod Family @ Mt Muncie
Hi Gaye!

I got your photo requests up for Benjamin, Frances, Mildred, Sarah, Moses, Betty, and Ida. There was just the main family headstone no individual ones.

I called the cemetery to confirm since there was just the one headstone and there were 3 others buried on that plot: Theo, Fred W, and Mildred's sibling Frances Ballard.

There wasn't a Grover on the plot just the 10 family members: Theo, Sarah, Benjamin, Frances, Mildred, Moses, Frances Ballard, Betty Ruth, Fred W. and Ida.

I will have the cemetery try to locate Grover. They did tell me that there were alot of Harrod's buried in Section 24. I only saw the one plot for Herbert D. I will let you know what they find out.

I also got your other requests up for Evelyn Ruth, Herbert D, and Margaret. They are buried in another section with Mary L, Marion L, Herbert E, and Alice Starnes.

I added memorials for Theo, Mary L, and Marion L. If you would like a transfer, please let me know and I would be happy to do it.

Best Regards
Shannon B
