Hi! PLEASE ONLY USE THE ADDITIONS AND CORRECTIONS TAB (TOP/RIGHT CORNER OF A MEMORIAL)Corrections ONLY WHEN REQUESTING ADDITIONS, CORRECTIONS, or TRANSFERS.

Please be patient with all edit requests.
I became interested in Genealogy as a HS teenager, forty years ago, when the following three factors came together about at the same time: 1) I relocated to Champaign Co., OH to reside with a sibling. Initially and merely out of pure boredom and curiosity, I became interested in cleaning up an old, uncased for cemetery that was on our way to town, within Concord Twp., Pioneer/Kenton Cemetery) where I resided (Hamlet of Eris). 2) The 1977 television mini series, ROOTS, came on; and 3) my Birth Certificate (that I'd never seen or knew of the names on it), had arrived in the mail in order for me to obtain my driver's license. All three events came together like a tornado and thus I began my 39 year passion for GENEALOGY and love of history. Little did I know that this cemetery in itself is full of History, many family members of Simon Kenton (Ohio's Daniel Boone), who literally knew Daniel Boone as well since these Kenton's had 1st emigrated there from Virginia before emigrating up to Clark & Champaign Co., OH. (See Allen Eckart's books, THE FRONTIERSMAN,...) Genealogy and cemeteries also lead me to the opportunity to be employed as a Probate Deputy Clerk for 12 years in Ohio, restoring several Cemeteries; initiated the Chartering of the CCGS of OGS in Ohio and assisted with that of Green Co., WI. For 25 + years, I assisted others with their research professionally as a part time business titled, Family Tree Lines and as a member of C.O.G (Council of Ohio Genealogists), a group of Professional Ohio Genealogists and Secretary of the Champaign County, Ohio Records Commission. I am currently a member of several Southwestern, WI and WI Genealogical and/or Historical Societies, but actively in Green, Lafayette and Iowa Co's. I'm so thankful we now have F.A.G., which keeps me busy contributing names and information onto, for our future generations.
That Birth Certificate lead me to Mineral Pint, Iowa Co., Wisconsin for my mother's Maternal side, who were all Irish Catholic and Scotch-Irish: COLLINS/CALLAN, GILMORE, RYAN, CROW/(E), McARDLE,CUNNINGHAM,CALHOUN,DUNBAR... and her Paternal English side: JACKSON, HARRIS, STEVENS, HEATH.... and West Virginia for my father: HEATHERLY, REEL, BOLTON, STOCKWELL, ANGLIN,McCLUNG,CARTER/CARDER,HOGBIN...,the majority of those took me back to Barbour, Harrison, Randolph and Greenbrier counties of West Virginia until the industrial revolution hit the mid west, and my grandparents, Wm. Boyd & Bertha (REEL)HEATHERLY left the mountains of Keyser, Mineral Co., WV, where their first child Edna was born, (Dec 20, 1906), struck out ca 1906-1910 for East Moline, Rock Co., IL, where my father, Carl Raymond Heatherly was born in 1910, where the industrial revolution was booming, as well as all through out the Great Lakes and the entire Midwest. In 2013, I learned he was first married to Shirley (Hutchinson/Hutchison)Riebe, the widow of Walter A. Riebe, Sr. Shirley and Walter had a dau., Iris Riebe b. ca 1930. *Last My Foster Family names include: CALL, NICHOLS, PATTERSON, GOODWIN/GORDAIN, HARDY, NEVEL, O'BRIEN and CRAIG, all primarily of Rock, Dane, Richland, and Racine Counties of Wisc., some of Winnebago Co., IL.
*Prior to Huricane Katrina, I'd been in touch with my Calhoun cousin, Eunice Cunningham Calhoun Wymand, only to first loose her with her passing and then to loose track of her descendants when Katrina struck. Eunice's mother was my Gr. Gr. Grandmother's niece. Sadly I was not able to get my photos and Eunice's immediate family updated or assist them in identifying the box of photos that her son said he had. Can anyone help me to get back in touch with them again? Susie
7 year old kid died (Schrack) Hi, you got your reference to the death on the Simon Davis memorial as per your request- you do realize the kid died in 1900 and Simon died in 1867 so I don't understand. Dave
William J Vivian Hello again, William is my 1st cousin, twice removed. How did you get his birth year. From the cemetery? I have the year as 1956, but I do not have the source, so I may very well be incorrect. I would like your help here. Also, since William is a relative, would you transfer management of his account to me? I'm in the process of linking his spouse and 8 children. Thanks, Jim Sindberg, son of a Vivian
Crary and Bewer Hi, I have a Fred Crary (1897-1959) and 3 descendants. His wife, Alice Vivian, is my 2nd cousin once removed. My mother was a Vivian. I have a Harold Brewer (1895-1975) and daughter. His wife, Pearl H. Mitchell, is my grandaunt. Pearl's sister, Clara Ann, is my grandmother. Jim
Vivian My mother was a Vivian. Her mother was a Mitchell. The Vivians and Mitchells married a lot of Rules. My mother pasted on a lot of family history to me. I lived in Europe and was able to visit Cornwall several times and research records. I've been doing my family history since the advent of my first computer in 1983. Jim Sindberg
edit Joel Stabenow I'm going to do the edit here in a second. I see a record in ancestry.com that he died in Fort Lauderdale but I see one there that another man with matching name and dates died the same time in Jackson Co., Mi. Thought you might want to know this but I'll honor your request.
Can you provide documentation for your recent submission asking to link Martha Stiff to parents named Charles Dudlow and Anna Wernelow Dudlow? Charles' probate file on Ancestry does not list Martha as a daughter or heir. It only lists his heirs as his wife Anna, and their children: Albert, Alvina, Fred, and Charles. From a cursory search, I can't find any evidence linking Martha to these folks.
Obituaries Susie, I'm not at all comfortable with adding bits and pieces of obits to memorials. The necessary "documentation" is the obituary itself.
Please send an image of the entire obituary you would like placed on the deceased's memorial, including the name of the newspaper and the date the obit appears, and I will type it up and add it to the deceased's memorial.
Edward Koch You sent and e-mail that he is survived by his brother George. If George is still alive, I cannot enter his name onto Find A Grave, per their guidelines. No living persons can be entered without their permission.
