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.

RE: levi Gill
This spring Im going to have the caretaker go out with
me and have him do some poking around the ground. They are finding stones buried in the cemetery. Since someone read the cemetery at one time there was a stone. So maybe they are buried. its worth a chance
Im trying to keep myself a note so I wont forget. Im in this cemetery so much and love a mystery.
Thanks for you help

I and another person have been working on the Gills in Greenwood cemetery. We believe that his parents stones are buried because at one point someone read them but now they are gone. The only stone I could find was Levis but its just the bottom of the stone.
I thank you for the obit but Find A Grave doesnt like them in the picture section.
could you remove and type it out ? If you dont want to take the time to type out I will be glad to do so if
you will then remove the one in the picture section.
Just let me know what you would like to do

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.
