RE: Tinkers Creek Cemetery
Interested in the next message that seems to indicate you were looking for Peter Crosson. Is this Peter Crosson of Kane, PA? If so this is a direct ancestor of mine and I have pretty detailed info on the Crosson family. Was in touch with a Crosson relative in NY a few years back.

Tinkers Creek Cemetery
We are trying to locate descendents of those buried in Tinkers Creek. We are trying to get the cemetery on the national register of historic sites. Please contact me at for more information.
Also am revising and updating the Independence Township Cemetery book and notice I have no Minors listed in the 2009 edition. Who do you have buried there and dates and brief bio of your ancestors. Eventually we want to have headstones for everyone who was buried there.

Please contact me.

Timons-Timmons - Brecksville
Hi Anita,
The reason I used 1846 as the death date for Thomas Timmons is because I found him on the tax lists in Brecksville through 1846. From 1824 through 1834 he is shown as the owner then in 1838 it shows Heirs of Thomas Timmons so not sure if he died and left the land to heirs? I found Mary Timmons on only one tax list in 1824. I do not know where their stone is in relation to the road but it is a very small cemetery and should be fairly easy to find. I'm not sure if I can get back there any time soon but can try and let you know. Can you send me an email with any other info. to :

Thanks much,

Mary Timmons #97610654
I found this info. on ancestry:

Excerpt from the history of Brecksville, Cuyahoga County, Ohio:
“Granny TIMMONS,” Mrs. Mary TIMMONS, with her son Tommy came from Pennsylvania early in 1812 and made her home in the eastern part of the township, near the Cuyahoga river. She purchased quite a large tract of land and gave the ground for the Eastern cemetery to the township. Her husband was Thomas TIMMONS..
I changed their last name from "Timong" to Timmons
I believe they are the same people as mentioned in the article. I'm thinking Thomas that she is buried with may be her son?
Let me know what you think.

RE: photo of George Brawley
Hi Anita,

No, I don't know when or who has cleaned many of the stones in this cemetery.

The cemetery is located downtown in the small town of Phoenix and is adjacent to the museum and the high school. It has a rustic and natural look and feel about it which is what I like about all of the small cemeteries here in this area. It's kept clean, the grass is kept mowed and the leaves raked.

Not too long ago I added some new photos of the cemetery, you can see them if you look at the cemetery page. They are a nice representation of what you would see if you were able to visit.

I'm happy to have been able to take an updated photo of your family member.
