I've been thrilled with this site ever since I first visited it. I've used it often for my own family research, and love helping others with theirs. I thoroughly enjoy traveling the countryside, and fulfilling photo requests!
Meta Kruse Rippen (74265437) Thank you so much for this listing! Meta was one of my great-grandmothers and all I knew of her, aside from her name, was that she died at a fairly young age. It broke my great-grandfather's heart and he became an alcoholic. My dad told me of his dad telling him after Meta died Eilert would load all the kids into a wagon and they would have to wait in it outside while he was in the bar. It's such a sad tale but despite everything those children grew up to be wonderful people.
Photos from Grandview cemetery Thank you for taking and posting the wonderful photos of this cemetery. I would like to ask permission to use the ones of my family in my personal family tree. Thank you Peggy
RE: Gerald David Greider Anne, Please excuse my delay in responding to your note. You are correct about the mother and son relationship. Nothing should be deleted. Mary Jean McCoy is the daughter of Josiah Luther McCoy and Vera R. Coulthard. It appears that research shows that Gerald David Greider's father is Harry David Greider, born in Wood County, West Virginia on 6 September 1917, and died 30 June 1999. The Ohio Divorce Index records a divorce of Harry D. Greider of Fairborn, Greene, and Jean M. Greider on 18 September 1967 after approximately 25 years of marriage. Harry D. Greider was a World War II and Korean War veteran. I apologize for any confusion I may have caused while navigating the site.
RE: Harry Slaymaker Hi, my records that I obtained from a relative in Minnesota has his name as George Henry, which is the way it is in FamilySearch Family Tree. Clearly he was known as Harry according to all the other sources including his headstone. In light of all that, I am certainly ok with leaving the findagrave memorial as Harry. I hope that makes sense. thanks for your good work. DL Melville
