Bio and Links
I am very appreciative of the folks who created and maintain Find-A-Grave. Initially, I was a little skeptical about submitting data to the memorials, however, through the years, I have become a huge fan. I want the data we are submitting to be freely available for genealogical research for years to come. The community of contributors I have communicated with has been cordial and helpful in almost every instance.

If you find any errors or question any information I am posting, please do not hesitate to bring it to my attention. We are all imperfect, however, I believe it is crucial the data we post is correct and includes sources whenever possible. Your assistance will be appreciated!

Because of my parents enthusiasm for local history and genealogy, I began helping them research our family tree. Even before I knew I loved genealogy, I was involved in it each weekend as we visited elderly relatives and stretched our young legs in cemeteries throughout Ohio. My father was one of the early presidents of the Pickaway County (Ohio) Historical Society in the 1970s and both of my parents were instrumental in getting the society's genealogical library up and running. My mother was Registrar of the Pickaway Plains DAR Chapter for many years. What a tremendous gift it was to share the search for our ancestors with them! I am forever grateful to them and my grandparents for preserving our family's history. Almost all of the photos I post are scans of properly identified photos that belonged to them.

Cora and Hiram Dunkle
Hi Rachel,

I'm releasing the Dunkles, since I won't be returning to Inglewood before my claim expires. Went today and the area of the Mausoleum of the Golden West, where they are interred (Sanctuary of Hope, S-79, niche K), is currently having it's floor refinished. Was able to located and photograph Gladys. I'm sure another volunteer will claim Cora and Hiram.

Abraham Cryder
Thank you for adding his memorial and adding note, parents are unknown at this time. He never lived in Brooke Co. Virginia. 1820 Census, I find Abraham Crider in Brooke Co. Virginia also in 1820 I find Abraham Crider (my ancestor) in Pickaway Co. Ohio. I would very much like to find my Abraham's ancestors. They are not Martin Crider and Anna Catherine Schmutz.

Abraham is also my 5th great Grandfather.

Catherine Holler
Great work on the Goodman Holler families. You have Catherine Small-Holler (Wife of Daniel Holler) 106124657 listed as 7 years old. Checking if typo or possible daughter of Daniel

Also, have you ever found out who the parents of Peter Goodman (Husband of Elizabeth Nagle) were? He is also in the Adelphi Cemetery.

Finally, I'm looking for a husband wife buriel site circa 1858 (Influenza) possible in Adelphi. The wife's Maiden name would have been Holler. First name possibly Eliza. She would have been the daughter of Daniel Holler and Elizabeth Small. She may have married a McClure. Her son William T. was adopted by his aunt Mary Holler and Henry Goodman.

Again, Great Work! Perry G.
