Adding family Hi there, I have in my possession a book stating that John Salts, born 1784 Married Elizabeth Barbee, born Nov. 1, 1799, on April 7, 1815 in Ohio. Later her name was written as Elizabeth Barber-Salts. Elizabeth's mother and father were Mary Smith or Schmidt, b.1760 and William Barbee or Barber, b.1759. I fully believe Elizabeth is their last daughter, born 11 months after Susannah.
Arbaugh Hi Thomas, My name is Robin Latoski, a fellow member. I have been preparing a family tree for a dear friend of mine. Her name is Diana Annis (Kotnik). Her maternal grandmother is Bertha A Arbaugh (1897-1977). I was wondering if you have any information to how the family members passed. I found an article on Newspapers.com that read Joseph Arbaugh, who did work for the B&O Railroad, was killed on May 1, 1890. He had been standing on the train when it was passing under a bridge, he was knocked off and killed by the wheels of train. The family being from Vinton County and many moved to Ross County. If you wouldn’t mind, I would like to collaborate as to the family that is connected to the surname Bethel and Annis. If I have a different family growing on my friends tree, you would be a incredible help to me. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in helping me. Thank you for your time, Robin Latoski
Robert Sturgeon Good morning Thomas. Hopefully you can assist me in clarifying the (2) headstones for my 3rd cousin Robert Sturgeon. One has his death on June 30, 1858 and the other has January 6, 1860. Are there (2) different Robert Sturgeon's? Your time and assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Pisgah Cemetery I was wondering if in Ross County has a historical Society. In doing some hunting for Ellis graves, some had sunk very low and other disarray. I talked to Van Buren County Historical Society (I am in Iowa) I was told that they have work days cutting brush, grass and even pulling up sunken headstones. They do private cemeteries and regular cemeteries, one of which was away back (Over a mile off on a small almost a hill) from high way surrounded by a big field. Since there are Copperheads in the cemetery there are rattlesnake handlers that could help remove them. Hope this gives you some ideas. I hope some day to check out the cemetery. You have a lot of great info on these 2 sites.
Stookey burials in Strader Hill Cem, Ohio Tom, I visited this cemetery yesterday for a relative and did some photo requests & took 2 other photos of a monument erected by the Stookey family in the cemetery. I have posted both photos (both sides of the monument) to Abraham, Eve, Isaac & Susanna Stookey's memorials. This info may help you confirm their data, although I note that Susanna's death year is in conflict with what is on her memorial. Hope this is of help to you.
RE: Virginia Throckmorton Hello, Just wanted to say thank you for the transfer of Virgina's memorial to me for management. It was not necessary..but appreciated none-the-less. I will take good care of her. Have a great evening, D. Roman
Elizabeth Fout Hi Tom, I added her parents & added birth & death locations. I was not able to add the Harrison township as it was not available. I will now go in and add her parents to Ancestry. Thanks. Sher
Bauer Thank You for telling me about the cemetery -- I moved them to the other cemetery. Hope someone can come up with something for me I have hit a brick wall--back there. I am from Nebraska and didn't know the cemeteries back there.
