A little ring encompasses our lives and many generations link the rings of theirs, thus forming a chain that is without end. -Goethe|
Walking the cemeteries, learning the history of those who have passed gives one a sense of accomplishment. I love every moment. I've transcribed Mound in Pike Co. OH. for many years. I also transcribe Gardner in Pike Co., Harmon in Scioto, Blanton Branch in Johnson Co., KY, as well as other cemeteries in Clark, Green, Highland, Pike, Ross, Scioto & Johnson Co.. KY. I've taken pictures of headstone's, gone back a few years later & couldn't make them out. The elements are hard on the old one's. I'm in this because Genealogy is my passion. It has been for 37 years and will be until someone is taking a picture of my stone.
I'm also very glad to transfer. I have a strong belief family should manage family, be it a recent death or four generations past but I won't transfer my BLANTON Memorial's. I've researched the Blanton's for 37 years this Sept. I've labored hard & long, visited many states, counties, court houses & cemeteries. You might as well say I've researched them half my life. I'll be glad to add info to their memorial's but I won't transfer them.
Please don't post obituaries/bio's to flower/note section or correct me there. Send an Edit & I will make the changes giving you credit..
I also follow FAG policy by omitting the living from obituaries & not posting obituary pictures. I'm slowly removing the living & pictures from obituaries I previously posted unless permission has been granted.
Prayer for Genealogists
Lord, help me dig into the past
And sift the sands of time
That I might find the roots that made
This family tree of mine.
Lord, help me trace the ancient road
On which my fathers trod
And led them through so many lands
To find our present sod.
Lord, help me find an ancient book
Or dusty manuscript
That's safely hidden now away
In some forgotten crypt.
Lord, let it bridge the gap that haunts
My soul when I can't find
The missing link between some name
That ends the same as mine.

|Danielle Calhoun||Thank you.|
Thank you so much for taking the pictures! They're in great shape. I really appreciate it and I hope one day to be able to visit in person. Did you happen to catch what was on Thomas's headstone above his name? He's a mystery so I'm curious if it's anything important. Thanks again soooo much!!
I recently spoke with the woman who is in charge of the burial records and that's the info she gave me. Of course there's always the chance that they are in disrepair or aren't there anymore. I've had that happen quite a bit when I search out headstones for people. I'm excited and hopeful to see what you find! :)
|Danielle Calhoun||Thank you!|
Thank you so much - can't tell you how much it's appreciated.

Samuel J Myton, Sec 2 Lot 43... and his daughter, Minnie M Blackston and her husband Thomas W Blackston. They're all in the same sec/lot.
Sorry to keep bugging ya! ;) As you can tell I'm working on my Smith relations tonight. Thanks for linking them all.

Hello there. I noticed you have added photos to some of the memorials in Springbank Cemetery. I was wondering if you would be going there again any time in the near future? I just discovered some of my ancestors are buried there and would love to see their headstones if possible. Ohio is a bit of a haul for me so I'm looking for someone to help.
Thanks so much!
I was wondering if you knew the Zingsheim family? I am trying to get the obituary for Herb Zingsheim, Jr. who died in 2009. I met and married my husband because of him!

Hello! Thank you for your efforts at Find A Grave. I'm writing to ask your permission to use your headstone photos of my family members with my public family tree at Ancestry.com. You and Find A Grave would be credited. The one I'm looking at is for Linda Couch (No. 113878315), but there might be others. Please reference Linda Couch when responding. Thanks again. -- Randall McCoach, Albuquerque, N.M., MyCatCyd@yahoo.com

Thank you!...for being so speedy!
Moses is my 3rd Great Grandfather and I have a piece of paper that said he is buried in Jackson Co. Ohio, but your Find A Grave posting is "exciting"!! Also, the hand written papers you have added. I would surly appreciate copies of your "add-ons" as well as any information you may have as to his burial. Also, his wife you have listed as Elizabeth King. I also have King as an alternate to Elizabeth Nance, but some research data and a "leap-of-faith", I believe her name is Nance, so any information you may have as to her name of King would be much appreciated.
