Recent Transfer 128008527
Thank you for making this transfer of my Aunt and the photo you added for Carl Kunard. I have many ancestors in the Oak Hill Cemetery in Taylorville. Thanks again for doing such a great job of covering this cemetery. Anyone with the name Hord, Kunard, Fathergale is an ancestor of mine. And there are others too. I will ask for their transfers one at a time so I can enhance information on a case by case basis as time permits.

Thanks again!

RE: Bartz
Would you like me to delete the temporary marker from the memorial now that the permanent one is there? Brent

Jessie Micenheimer photo
is it possible for you to write down the inscription as it appears on the marker?

There is a way to possibly bring out the words that I found online.

The hobby shops have black foam on a plastic stick. You can put the foam into cornstarch and rub it on the inscriptions and the words become clearer. Plus the cornstarch will wash off with rain and not harm the grass around the marker.

I understand if you do not want to take the time to try the above method.

Any assistance will be appreciated. Thank you.

Grave Marker phoyo
Thank you for posting the photo for Jessie Micenheimer's marker. However, one cannot make out the inscriptions on it. Is there some way you can possibly edit the photo for more clarity?

Julia Watkins Atkinson grave memorial
As an addendum to the message I just left. I just had a thought. Could the "Watkins" have come from the fact that she was married to "W.Atkin-son". Perhaps the "on" was faded as the marker is so old?

Julia Watkins Atkinson grave memorial
I have a question for you. I have been doing my family tree and have been looking for the wife of a great great uncle of mine. Her name is Julia Irwin born 1818 in Virginia. She married Robert Henry Sweeney. They had one daughter named Sarah Sweeney. Robert Henry died in 1844. Julia remarried a man named William Atkinson. Her daughter Sarah married John Atkinson (Williams son). William had two wives that I know of in his lifetime, Elizabeth Snodgrass and Julia Irwin Sweeney. I suspect that the Julia Atkinson that you listed in the Oak Hill Cemetery, as Julia Watkins Atkinson is really Julia Irwin Sweeney Atkinson. (Julia moved in with her daughter and son in law in Christian County Illinois - from Ohio County, WV-- when William Atkinson passed away.) Can I ask where you got the "Watkins" from? Thanks so much!

Mary Doglio Perona, Oak Hill Cemetery
Denise, thank you so much for adding the photo of Joe and Mary Perona to their memorials! Mary is my grand aunt and I was happy to see that her photo is on her headstone.

Thank you!
Hi Denise! Thank you so much for transferring my mother's page. I am just curious - how did you learn of her passing? Thank you again, Chi

RE: Flahart
Thank you very much.
You can also see the FLAHAUT family on our family tree :
You can choose English as a language, except for the notes. It is free.

I put the tombstones in the green squares "medias" on the sheet of each person when I find them.
As a hobby, I try to find back the thousands of coal-miners of my region who emigrated to the USA (mainly Pennsylvania, Illinois, Kansas and Colorado).
They are already about 2000 on our tree, but it is far to be finished !

Best regards,
