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.

Jan, I don't mind transferring at all. I am just sick and tired of these people who request transfers when they refuse to transfer unless it is within Find A Grave guidelines. I transfer if all they are were friends. Barb

Jan, I offered to quickly. I should have ask if you transfer freely as well, since that is what I do. I see nothing in your bio to indicate what your choices are. Please let me know. Barb

I have corrected everything I think - I transfer freely if you would like to have this memorial. Barb

RE: Tod Lewis
Sorry about the error. The date of 10 Dec 1929 is the date of burial according to cemetery records.

RE: Sallie Bateman Compton
I think he "ran off". I see someone with a whole new life with the name Andrew Jackson Bateman in Mississippi!

Sallie's maiden name is Minter and her father is Silas Minter, mother Letitia Eggleston, if you want to look for a link.

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.
