I love Genealogy! I love it so much, I actually spend time doing family research for other people in my spare? time. I've been doing it for many years and this internet stuff really blows me away. My husband is somewhat engaged but he mostly lets me indulge in my hobby alone.|
Every day I learn something new. Not just about my family, but also about our country, and what pioneering spirits our ancestors had to settle and tame this beautiful and once very wild place. I try to research the history of each place I come to so that I can get a feel of what my ancestors were faced with and their daily life. It has really made me appreciate them more and has renewed my pride in the wonderful country they built.
I discovered Find-A-Grave while trying to work with the Tombstone Project on USGenWeb, but it didn't seem to take off too well. Some states, like Iowa & Illinois for a couple, have actually published their burial lists on line. What a find!! While Find A Grave can be a great Genealogy resource, let's not forget the main purpose is to document the burial sites of our people, i.e. record the location and photograph the headstones when possible. So many cemeteries have already disappeared and every day we lose a little more.
Our family names are: Ammeling, Barron, Beabout/Bebout/Beebout, Becker, Beekman, Befort, Benner/Bender/Binder, Berens, Blatter, Blum, Bohannon, Bohm, Bohmer, Boughton, Brodbeck, Brungardt, Cheetham, Chriswell, Cilplinger, Clark, Cobb, Cook, Cox, De Snick, Dechant, Deibler, Dicks, Doerfler, Doland, Doll, Donven, Doppler, Dreiling/Dreilingk, Duck, Eschelbacher, Eschenbrenner, Fedley, Fink, Finley, Fischer, Fisher, Fissner, Forsyth/Forsythe, Frank, Gehrig, Goetz, Gowensbach, Griffin, Haffner/Heffner, Harlan/Harland, Hauer, Haus, Heil, Henneigh/Hennigh, Hill, Hoffman, Hoope, Jamison, Jans, Jesel, Jones, Jund, Kaiser, Kauffman, Kendall, Kirke, Klipphan, Knoden, Knox, Kohl, Konig, Kramer/Cramer, Krebs, Labattie, Lambert, Lang/Lange, Lash/Loesch/Losch, Latheimer, Laubenheimer, Lichtenstern, Lightburn, Linenberger, Ludlum, Maddock, Mahr, Mamer, Markle/Mercklen/Merkel/Merkle/Merklin, Marshall, Maser, Mattingly, Mays, McElroy/McAlroy, McGrew, Mellinger, Miller, Moer, Moll, Molter, Montgomery, Moore, Mortlett, Mueller/Muller, Nebergall, Newberry, Nichols, O'Hara, Otter, Peace/Pease/Piess, Pfister, Pooley, Poppleman, Ray/Reah, Reger, Reuzel, Rhem, Riedel, Ruder, Schad, Schmidt, Schumacher, Schump, Seiler/Snyder, Shupp, Smith, Snook, Soars, Sprenger, Stacher/Stecher, Switzer, Taylor, Thaner, Thompson, Thurman, Trabaugh/Trarbach, Tweedell, Van Kinderen/Verkinderen, Waddington, Wagner, Wanger/Wenger, Wartmann, Weaver, Wilson, Wolffskehl/ Wolfkiel/ Wolfkill/ Wolfskiehl…. and many more.
Find-A-Grave is a great site. I'm not a cemetery walker, however, if I can be of service research wise, please let me know.

The photo is of my 2nd great-aunt, Ethel Frances Ludlum, who died when she was only seventeen. I love her outfit. Have you ever seen such a large bow?!
Blessings to all the wonderful volunteers who walk the cemeteries to take photos.

I think it says "She was the sunshine of our home," but I am not really sure.

I seen you were interested in the Bebout's. My maiden name is Bebout from the Guernsey County area.
|Valerie McNutt||RE: Mary Ruth Miller Young Gompf|
I made a note to this memorial that it is Gompf and not Young. When I get this move done I will be out there again to get the other memorial requests that I am going to look for and see if I can find a Mary Gompf. Do you where she is located to make this a little easier?
I added a note and links to the memorials for both Emma and Hannah Wadley at Elmwood Cemetery.
I very much appreciate that you brought this mistake to my attention. It isn't history if it isn't accurate.
Thank you! Steve

You are very welcome! I almost missed them as you can see they are very hard to read.
All I know is Memorial Park files show them buried in cemetery. Suggest you contact them for more info
|Robert "Rob" Weller||almeda russell|
Have no further info on this family.
|Valerie McNutt||RE: Russell|
Your very welcome! If I see anything else that you are looking for in my area will get to it as soon as I can. I plan to go through the cemetery in Zanesville and try to get much of these done that have been waiting for awhile for their requests before I move on to another big cemetery in Zanesville. If there is anything else that you are looking for let me know. I will be glad to help you out.
You are welcome and thank you for the nice compliment.
