Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Martha Henninger request
First, I cannot find any grave or tombstone and she is not listed in the cemetery database. Second, I note that whoever created the memorial has listed several Simcox children as her children. Was she also married to a Simcox? I noticed that her sister married a Simcox. I cannot contact the person who made the memorial.

I have not been on Find A Grave in several months and when I logged on awhile ago I noticed your message on my Dad's (Noel Leroy Kelley,) memorial regarding your Grandfather George Kelly.

Thank you for your beautiful message and I am so happy to meet a new cousin! have met only 2 so far, as up until the past year or so, many of the members of Dad's direct Kelley line have been a bit of a mystery.

I'm also on

If you would like to share information, you can also email me. My email address is listed on my profile page here at Find A Grave.

Best wishes,

Liz,(Elizabeth,) Kelley

OOPS!!! The death certificate is there now. ALL the records for Oakdale (from day one thru March 2016) are on the Union County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society - website - just follow the links. Additionally, my husband and I have completely photographed Oakdale (quite a few updates are needed for recent interments), and the photos are on my site (see my Find A Grave profile). Last--I've put a "grave is unmarked" photo on the page

RE: McElroy
Hi Evan,

My pleasure. I did not find Mrs. McElroy because I wasn't looking for her. I will check next visit to Oak Spring. I did however, find James McElroy Sr. whose grave is next to James Jr. Created a memorial page for him (Find A Grave # 161844242) with two photo's.

RE: Catherine Hoover Raymer
No problem. And yes, Ruth is super helpful and has access to a lot of great resources.

Glad it got sorted out. :)

Catherine Hoover Raymer
Hi Evan

I happened to see your message to Find A Grave member Ruth about Catherine Hoover Raymer. I thought I would message you about this because the Raymers are in my tree and I had some confusion with this family as well. So I wanted to share what I learned.

Daniel Raymer had 3 wives. His first wife was Veronica "Fanny" Reesor (1800-1833). Then he married Catherine Hoover (1816-1855). Catherine's parents were John Hoover and Susannah Kurtz. And then he married ANOTHER Catherine Hoover (1819-1907). Her parents were Christian Hoover and Maria Troyer.

So the other memorial you referenced does not have the wrong dates. It is just the "other" Catherine Hoover.

It took me ages to figure out there there were two Catherine Hoovers married to Daniel. Only way I can keep them distinct in my tree is to label then #1 and #2. lol.

Hope this helps.

RE: Sarah McDaniel
She must be in the Prospect Hill in Omaha unless she was moved. Some times the records get lost threw the years. That may be why she was not on there list.

Try, Then click on Prospect Hill. At the bottom of the page click on Lists/Markers, then click M. They have a headstone photo of Sarah there.

RE: McDaniels
There is another Prospect Hill Cemetery, 21901 West Maple Road on the outskirts of Elkhorn, which is several miles west of Omaha. That might be a good place to look?
