I am fascinated with genealogy. My grandmother had me plant flowers on gravesites for her when she could no longer do it herself. I kept up that tradition for her as long as I lived close enough to do so. I enjoy the things you can learn reading old markers and stones. The families in my tree include: Rudd; Good; Miller; Reid; Mathews; Jones and all the people who contributed to our genetic pool! The main stomping grounds for our families are central Ohio, West Virginia panhandle, southern Michigan and Pennsylvania. I, of course, live 12 hours from those spots!|
Please feel free to use the photos of the monuments/tombstones in any way you see fit. That is why I post them here.

You are very welcome.
|D. L. Lee||David Wicker #126981288|
I was able to add a photograph to his memorial confirming your assumption that his was buried in Old Sharon Cemetery.
Both David and his brother, John C Wicker, died during the Civil War on the day following his brother in Memphis. Since John is buried here, I must assume that David was also. Both served in the 87th Illinois and probably died in the measles epidemic that hit the 87th in Memphis.

I've been adding the grave locations for the photo requests at Calvary Cemetery in Cleveland. I found your request for Francisek Szemplakowski. Calvary Cememtery has his name listed as FRANK SZYMPLACHOWSKI. I've updated the request and hopefully soon, one of us volunteers can get the photo for you. Have a great day.

|Leona Gustafson||RE: Forider|
You're welcome. The surname is spelled both ways, but both Thomas Foriders are spelled with only one "r".
|Peace4me||RE: Big Run|
You are very welcome! I put the photos on some of the Williams I took when I was at the Big Run Cemetery in October. There is a Donald L. Williams 1906-1984 & Martha Williams 1905-1992. Also a Kenneth Williams Jan. 8, 1930-Feb. 12, 1990 in this cemetery. I didn't see a memorial for them. Carla :)

You're welcome. I'm sorry he wasn't there. Have you checked with other area cemeteries? If you find him elsewhere, I'll be glad to take pictures.

|Larry Cunningham||RE: Edman|
I also wondered about the death year looking that way. The only thing I can think of is that the engraver made a mistake when he originally etched the death year, "blanked out" the error, and then never finished by engraving the correct date. Otherwise, it's a real mystery.
I've added the same headstone photo to Burr Edman's memorial.

you were asking about the memorial- why there are two links to his wife. Good question- it keeps coming up as "memorial has been merged". Something by the Find A Grave admin I am assuming..
