Bio and Links
Bio Photo Greetings fellow Find A Grave members. I'm Mike Tillinghast and live in Northern Ohio and am working on my family genealogy. I am a direct descendant of Pardon Tillinghast. I am his 11th Generation Great Grandson and the 7th generation on our Tillinghast Family Farm. My fraternal twin brother and I raise cattle and horses.

Also researching other family relatives: Sommers, Gardner, Stacey, Hine, Welch, Hill and Burnham.

I am a photo volunteer for Find A Grave. It is a very good past time and I enjoy "Headstone Hopping" all around Erie and Huron Counties. It is very rewarding to assist families and provide genealogical information. I also enjoy the excitement and satisfaction when I find that elusive headstone I've been looking for after a long challenging search.

Also taking photos of grave sites in area cemeteries for our local Historical Society.

One impressive thing I have observed in every cemetery I have been in is that veterans from the Revolutionary War to the present have veteran markers at their grave sites. As a Navy veteran, I am very pleased that my fellow veterans from all branches are remembered. One of my ongoing local cemetery projects is to obtain grave markers for veterans that do not have one.

My long range intent is to provide photos and/or Memorials for those in area cemeteries who do not have them.

With the exception of my relatives, I will be glad to transfer any memorial. Please feel free to ask.

RE: Irene Carols Nicholas Gaich
You are very welcome! I always take photos of the family stones that are in the same plot. It is true a lot of times the one making the request doesn't know the other family members are buried there. Carla 😊😊

RE: Thanks for the photos of the Underhills
Thanks a lot, Mike. I think they would be best sorted the reverse of what they now are, i.e. 4-3-2-1. Hope that's not too much trouble. Thanks so much for doing the whole family. I really appreciate it.

Thanks for the photos of the Underhills
Hi Mike. My, you did a thorough job, showing the graves from every perspective. Thanks. I only wish they were sorted in the opposite order, since the picture I'd most like to see is last (fourth), so doesn't even display on the main page. Ah well.
