Bio and Links
Bio Photo Find a Grave has been a great resource for freely sharing information among researchers. I am rather concerned that will figure out a way to screw it all up like they have with RootsWeb. I would like to think that they learned their lesson from all the negative publicity they received in that earlier takeover, but they are so focused on the Almighty Dollar that it's hard to predict -- sometimes their corporate greed overwhelms both their common sense and common decency. If they begin to charge or otherwise restrict access (mandatory registration or tracking cookies) in order to view the photos and data that have been freely donated by millions of volunteers, I know that I will immediately delete any of the items that I still have control over.

You may freely use any of the grave photos which I have taken for any legal purpose. The other items (personal photos, obits and other documents) may have copyright restrictions of which I am unaware, so use your own best judgement on those.

RE: John Jacoby & Sarah Shankweiler Jacoby
Oops... sent that message before I was finished 😇

Margery, Jacob's wife, had family in Williams county Ohio just crossed the county line from Fulton County where your family line were.

Until I do further research I'm going to keep an open mind .... like a very dear friend said to me once "you never know what you might find down the road". 😇

Transferring memorials now .... 😇

RE: John Jacoby & Sarah Shankweiler Jacoby
Yes, definitely, I will transfer the above mentioned memorials to you😇

You are so much further ahead in your research while I am just beginning. I still feel there is a link in this family somewhere.

Jacob and Margery left Shippensburg, PA .... moved to Kenton, Hardin county, PA. I have never figured out why? I have always had my doubts about who Jacob's parents were... if he is 'correctly' linked with them now? Jacob was living in the same neighborhood as Margery Myers later to become his wife .... Mrs Jacoby... Census of 1850 for Shippensburg PA.

Your Marsena JACOBY 1st wife, Pauline "Lena" Riffe Jacoby, was Born in Kenton, Hardin. Co., PA ... died and buried there as is my Jacob Jacoby and his daughter & family.

RE: John Wesley Hodge grave photo
You are welcome. I wished I could of found more of the picture request listed. A lot of them are very old and broken. Several trees have broke and blocking access to several graves. Some org./club is restoring this cemetery. They should have more pictures to list. Vickie

RE: John Jacoby & Sarah Shankweiler Jacoby
Have no Proof of the above mentioned memorials... it was an educated guess on my part ... The reason I was researching your Jacoby family is because I am also related to a Jacoby family ... one buried in Hardin County Ohio close to Fulton county Ohio .... my Jacoby line also comes from Pennsylvania .... your George Washington Jacoby ended up in Oregon .... my great grandfather, John Traxler Myers, ended up in Oregonů He was the brother of Margery Traxler Myers Jacoby. I feel there is a family connection here... just trying to figure it out ... trying to get families ' linked'....

Thanks for your inquiry

RE: John Robert Smith grave photo
Bob - there about 20 John Smiths, according to the cemetery office. This is the one he pointed out to me. I will go back, and see if I can figure it out. Please resubmit the photo request, as a reminder for me. I truly want to get this correct. If you want to delete this, go ahead, or I will. Let me know. Provide as much info as possible in the notes of the new photo request.

Gosh what a crazy or overworked brain....I usually check and post if I find "others" in the niche. Sorry I didn't. IF you post it will help my failing memory remember to do it. Thanks Bob and I hope I can do more for you in the future
