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.
Cindy

RE: Samuel Brooks #42689046
Hello Cindy,
Yes Samuel Brooks is my 3rd Great Grandfather. I've input a Joseph Brooks as his dad (which is probably wrong) from a 1830 Census: Athens County, Ohio, United States ~ CENSUS - BROOKS, Samuel MALES: Under 5 (1), 5-9 (2), 30-40 (1) FEMALES: Under 5 (1), & 20-29 (1) TOTAL 6 *Living next door is Joseph Brooks & wife 50-60 yrs. Could be his dad & mom*.
What difficult is that there's another Samuel Brooks in Athens County but in Athens Township. Same age with same number of kids. I've input both Census's on my tree.
Are you related to Samuel? If so I could add you as a guest on my tree if you want.
Let me know,
Joy Kettell Clarridge

RE: Howard George
Howard's mother was Jennie Tate. My mother was Mallie Tate daughter of Edgar T Tate who was a brother to J B Tate (Jennie's father) Also my mother's brother Palmer Tate married into the George family. I think I have the correct information on this if not please let me know. Thanks Darlene Taylor

Samuel Drain
Do you know when Samuel died and where he is buried? Milton and Annis' father. I know he was living in Troy Township, Athens, Ohio in 1840.

RE: Joseph Trembly
Cindy, your request for a picture of the headstone of Pierre Keornack (Curwick)requires further research and/or information. His name is not listed on the cemetery map or in the cemetery book I have access to at the library in Glasco. Will update you on further research and my findings. Ken Robinson

Cynthia Mills Peet UPDATE
George T. Peet, s/o Walter & Cynthia Sarah (Mills) Peet, b. 10-04-1892, d. 06-07-1914 was interred in 1N 656:4. This space, as well as the adjacent space 1N 656:5, was purchased by Fred Peet in 1914. The second space (656:5) does not indicate an interment, but was purchased many years after Cynthia's passing.
