Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in Franklin,Ind. Moved to Ohio around 1951. Lived in Butler,& Clinton County Ohio most of my life. Graduated from Miami University. Love to teach artillery,especially of the Mexican-Civil War era.
I have been involved in Family genealogy for many years of Motsinger,Robertsons,Robinson,Robison,Sides,Crim,Lockenhour,Breeden,& Birth to name a few.
I enjoy doing volunteer photographing, & creating memorials in my area. If you are related to any of my memorials I will gladly transfer them to you. I believe, as a family member you will know the correct links, & information to add. I encourage everyone to add photos of their ancestors to help preserve them for all to see.

RE: Zimri Smith memorial
Many thanks for the advice and for taking the time to explain so thoroughly, Will. Much appreciated. If you have the occasion to revisit the memorial, you'll see that I cut-and-pasted your entire message so that others will understand the issue and have the benefit of your wisdom and experience in your own words. I've seen mysteries like this before too. I always think transparency is best, so this solution seems to me the best of both worlds -- folks can see exactly what the death certificate says and understand exactly why it doesn't seem right to you. We all need reminders that death certificates aren't always right, of course. P.S. noting your place of birth brought back memories of when I spent an overnight or two at Franklin College back about 1956. I was a high school student in Indianapolis, and there was a workshop for high school journalists at the college. I don't doubt that I learned a thing or two, had fun, and thought it was a nice way to show off the college. Thanks again. - Jay

RE: Charles & Emma Martin
I sure know what you mean by shadows and a lot of people take the picture and you can really see them in the results. Really spoils it. Especially when they have that very shiny surface. Your idea is a good one.

RE: Charles & Emma Martin
Thanks. I seem to have a knack for seeing things others don't see. lol. But when I saw that I thought you had a reason for taking them on an angle like that.

Charles & Emma Martin
I think you have posted the pictures backwards. Since you took the pictures on an angle I would presume the name closest to you would be the same person as the memorial. So on the one with Emma, Charles name is closest and on Charles' picture Emma's is the closest.
Thought you might want to switch them.

I have been very fortunate in obtaining pictures of many of the lines that I research. I wish I could find one of her brother, Thomas C. Smith who is my great-great-grandfather.
