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.

Madison Colored cemetery
Would you please see if you can locate what is referred to in some death certificates as the Colored Cemetery in Madison, Rockingham county? There are Scales, Galloways and, I assume, other African Americans buried there. Thanks for any assistance you can offer.

RE: Hattie E. Dixon
The next time I make it up that way I would be more than happy to re photograph. If you would like to do a request and if someone else makes it there sooner and can fulfill it. Oak not sure when I will be up that way again

Photo request for Eliza Jane Ballard
The good Lord willing, my husband and I will be visiting the Four Mile Run cemetery in Austintown this coming Friday. I have Hills and Joneses buried there. I hate to "claim" your photo request, as I might not find it, or my husband might rush me away too fast for me to look for her grave. But if all goes well, I'll get you a picture.

I don't know.
bncheek asked me to move some memorials to the Gibson Family Cemetery in Rockingham County. She has no location or no directions on the opening cemetery page.
I had them in the Gibson Cemetery in Rocckingham County where you also took a photo of a GATEWOOD for me.

RE: Eva Thornton
I wanted to mention that I found more info on the link below...

It's the Old Huntertown Cemetery, Perry Township through roots web. Under 'T' it lists Eva and has a photo of her monument before it fell.

Happy to help!

I apologize for accidentally hitting "delete request" for Gordon. I left the same information on his "report problem". And intended to flag it the same as Verda's photo request. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do.
