Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live quite a distance from where my ancestors lived, so I am grateful for the assistance of folks on this website for information that I can't get to!

My Boughter, Kreider and Landis families lived in the Lebanon, Pennsylvania area. The Bellards were from Trumbull and Mahoning counties in Ohio. The Moyers and Mooks lived in the Sandusky/Bellevue area in Ohio.

On my mother's side, the Meils came to the Cleveland area from Westray, Orkney Islands. The Thorntons and Abels go back to revolutionary war times in New Hampshire and Connecticut respectively and came west to Painesville, Ohio. The Rickett family was from Allen County, Indiana.

I currently live in Rockingham county, North Carolina. I am happy to go into the woods to find "lost" cemeteries here.

Some of the marker photos I took with my old camera are not as clear as they could be. If you would like me to retake any with my new improved camera, let me know.

RE: Ballards
Always glad to help. Also, I'm not sure how well you can read the inscriptions as they are very worn, but their last name is spelled Bellard on the stone. I noticed you had family that spelled it with Ba and Be.

RE: Landis infants in Gravel Hill
Hi Jan,

Went back to the cemetery. The infants you inquired about are buried near Morris and Nellie Landis as well as another infant, Lucetta. She lived for 1 month.

Looking at the photos that we posted...the three markers closest to the large monument are the markers for Morris, Nellie and Carrie Landis. The other smaller ones are the infants.

Hope this helps.

RE: Samuel Llewellyn
I tried moving the large stone up on the opening cemetery page, but it doesn't save it even though it says it does.
will you please add the large stone to the opening page too?
thank you!

The other large headstone (erected in 1972) has the names of all the others buried here but their individual stones are gone.
Did you add a photo of that stone anywhere?
Thanks for all you do.
