Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi, I am Cindy Elschide. I began doing genealogy in 2000. Since then I have expanded my family tree in one place back to 1080 and in others several generations also. I started out with just a few names and now my house is over run with (about 30) 3 inch binders and tubs of papers, folders and pictures etc. I always say I get more fun going to a cemetery and finding an ancester's grave than most people do going to an amusement park and riding the roller coaster.
My husband & I have been known to center a vacation around cemeteries, libraries and courthouses. With visits with family and a little bit of site seeing thrown in.
My father's line includes Brooks & Haybron(southern Ohio); Gandee, Harper, Shafer or Shaver, Tanner, Hinzman, Raines and more (West Virginia); the famous Indian Scout Jesse Hughes who has many things written about his life; and I am cousins with Presidents Washington and Herbert Hoover.
My Mother's line includes Collard (originally from Belgium), Curwick, Kerouac (Jack Kerouac, the author and including being related to Madonna and Celine Dion); Newells' from Cambridgeshire England and Snows from East Riding Yorkshire England; Brownfields, Sallee's & Cox from Ohio, and other places of ancestors are Netherlands, France, Italy and more.
My husband's line includes Peter Kappis/Cavis a Germany Mercenary in the Revolutionary War; Peter's son who was the Engineer for the John Bull Train which currently sits in the Smithsonian in Washington DC; Ehlschides from Germany; His grandmother Helen Robertson was born in Scotland (her grandfather died while building the Firth of Forth Bridge) and his grandfather (Gerald McCann)was descended from Irish (Boyle and Corbett)who fled the potato famine to come to Canada.
I had visited the Find a Grave site before but just recently realised that I should have been adding to it--a long time ago! I find it has brought great enjoyment to me to share the photos I take with everyone on the web in hopes that they help others.

RE: Samuel Snow
His was the only stone visible in the area. There might be others, but they are covered over.

RE: Rosa Riley
If you want to just change the cemetery on yours, I'll delete mine.

RE: Thomas Pinney memorial
Yeah, I understand your problem. I have found cemeteries that I have family members buried and there are no records to help locate unmarked graves. Good luck in your search.

RE: Thomas Pinney memorial
I don't know about a plot map, but if I can find one I will let you know. I checked for the other names listed for requests for Keeton Cemetery and were unable to locate any of them. They may be there, but the stones may not be visible or they are not marked graves. It is still possible I missed them, but it is a small cemetery.

Thomas Pinney memorial
Hi, I was doing some research through Keeton Cemetery and I noticed you had a memorial for a Thomas J Pinney (F.A.G. 82702936). I believe you may have accidentally misread the last name. There is a marker for a Thomas J Kimmey with all the same information that you have listed for your Thomas J Pinney. There is also a memorial for Thomas J Kimmey with a photo of the marker (F.A.G. 7839313).

Edith Marie Cox
Did Edith Marie Cox, Find A Grave # 18508505 graduate from Mount Ayr High School class of 1938? If so, I have a picture of her. She graduated with my dad, Donald Bruechet. I will look for the picture for you.
