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.

John Jacob Motsinger
John is listed in two cemeteries, Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Crab Orchard, Williamson county, Illinois, and you have him in the Vicksburg National Cemetery.
Mount Pleasant Cemetery has his gravestone on line. Is the the Same John Jacob Motsinger. I have been working on the Motsinger genealogy for some time. I have been able to tie the North Carolina, Tennessee, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio Missouri Motsinger"s together, using find a grave. My Great grand Mother was a Motsinger and I have a lot of information on this side of the family.

Dear Will,
Thank you for adding Cameron's record and gravestone to findagrave. I submitted his birth/death locations today. He is the son/grandson of dear friends of ours. Many thanks, Sally Heys

Thanks for your help!
Thank you for visiting Second Creek Cemetery for me to verify the inscription on the stone which had a lamb on top. I deleted the lamb stone off of Silas Shields' memorial and added it to the infant Sever's memorial. Thank you also for posting close-up photos on the memorials of Lucinda McGilton Shields, Jacob L. Sever, and the infant Server. You are the best!

RE: Shields Memorials
Thank you for adding photos to the memorials of Rachel, Mercy and Silas Shields. I had no idea that Mercy Shields was buried aside of her husband. I only had a photo of Robert D. Shields' grave marker with her name on the side of the monument. Also, I will remove the gravestone that I have for Silas S. Shields with the lamb on the top. Since I could not read the inscription, I guessed that it might be him. Do you have a photo of the lamb gravestone with an inscription that is legible?

RE: Silas S. Shields
Thank you for the photo of Silas S. Shields' gravestone. The photo I had posted for him was illegible, so I only guessed that it might be his gravestone. Thanks to your photo, there is proof that Silas S. Shields is buried there.

I added a new memorial for Rachel Kelly, the wife of Peter Kelly. You mentioned in your bio for Peter Kelly that the gravestone aside of his might be his wife's gravestone. I think we can assume that it is his wife. If you still have the photo of the illegible gravestone, could you post it on Rachel Kelly's memorial?

Also, please feel free to post any of your photos on the memorials that I have created. I think it is really nice when other people post photos or post flowers on my ancestors' memorials
