Bio and Links
Bio Photo Researching my family history has recently become important to me... this site has been very helpful in linking up ancestors in far away places and creating an album for my family.

Grateful for the assistance, I'm also happy to return the favor... and it's helping me figure out where I want to invest in a "landing spot", also.

Update: I found out today that apparently at least one cemetery office thinks I'm scamming you, and therefore charges ridiculously high prices for information that I expected they'd offer as a customer service. (Well, at least I know where I WON'T be buying a plot!) All that to say I may have better luck with your requests if you call the cemetery yourself for the details, then post plot/location details in your request. (Specific directions to the grave in larger cemeteries would also be helpful.)

The vast majority of the memorials I manage are the result of my converting available online cemetery transcriptions into FindAGrave's spreadsheet format. Credit for the initial legwork definitely goes to those "in the field"; all of my hours on it were spent at a desk. :) Happy to make transfers.

Also: Images I post here are for your use and distribution unless specifically noted otherwise. Credit is always appreciated.

RE: Knight/McLaughlin

Thank you for finding all this. As it is, it has been very hard to find enough information on all of them since no one had all the names of the ones who died. Had the adults but not names for the children. Altogether there were 28 deaths in just a few days. The stones were put up quite a bit of time later by Daniel C. Knight. I hope you can share what you know. Are you my family?

Deer Creek Friends Meeting House
Are you still doing research on Deer Creek Friends Meeting House burial grounds? We are doing extensive research and revitilization there (under authority), and did not know if you needed any missing information. We recovered several Ely stones earlier this spring. Just let me know.

RE: sakowski
Transfer not necessary. I was just looking at some unusual spellings of names, this is what I saw:
U.S., Find A Grave Index
Name: Peter Sakowksi
Birth Date: 1897
Death Date: 1975
Cemetery: Saint Stanislaus Roman Catholic Cemetery
Thank you for checking on it.

RE: Knight family in Greene Co, OH
Hi Anita -

Source is transcription records of [Fairview] Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery found in the Greene County Room, Greene County Library, Xenia, OH. These were transcribed in the 1960-1970's.

An online source I use frequently is Greene County's website which includes online links to county indexes -

Here's an example of a link to death records for a James Henry Knight's and Henry A. Knight's death record:

Since a great migration to the newly-opened Northwest territory (includes Ohio) occurred after 1798 with statehood occurring in 1803, you may want to search for this family prior to 1850 in Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Connecticut. I'd focus on Virginia first. Thousands of families emigrated from Frederick County, VA area to Greene County as they were granted land following service in American Revolution.

Good luck!!

Dr. Ely
I had seen his stone in the Deer Creek Meeting House cemetery. This has been several years ago. There was a house next door to the church/cemetery. The people did not keep the property very clean. They just threw trash all over their yard. Between their house and the church was the cemetery and a set of trees at the end of the cemetery. I went thru the wood of trees and that is where his stone was. It was a much larger stone than the rest. We were going to clean it up a bit but we were afraid of snakes, so couldn't. But I definitely saw the stone there among the trees.

Laura/Lura Pratt w/o Elihu Pratt
Hi Anita-you have a request for a photo of Laura Pratt in the Prospect Hill cem in Essex CT. Well, I made a mistake when I put her in as "Laura", because I was following an inscription book. She is really listed on the gravestone as "Lura", and there is already a photo for Lura, wife of Elihu. So I'll be deleting my listing for "Laura" Pratt. Sorry about that! Irma #46927625
