Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family are mostly from Monroe County, Ohio. I spent lots of time there as a child on my grandparents farm on Grizzle Ridge Road. I have lots of information and old photos from that area I'm anxious to add to this site.

Names I'm currently researching are mostly my family's and include Decker, Clark, Workman, Griffith, Brown, Schenk, Freitag (Friday) Murphy, Fisher, Young, McMahon, Turner, Ullman, Mellott and Ott.

Please take a minute to look through my virtual cemetery, "Grandma's Album." ==>
These are photos of friends and relatives I have not yet identified. Maybe you will recognize someone and be able to help me identify them. Maybe they are a relative of yours?

For me, this is about doing something good for my family members and yours, too! It's not about keeping score, taking credit for something or seeing how many memorials I can build. It's exiting to research and locate family members that I never knew about. If I can help you find yours in the Ohio area please let me know, I'd be happy to help.

Decker clan
Hi there Tom. I am researching the Decker family starting with Johanna (Schick)Decker and her husband Elmer Ellsworth Decker.
We know that Elmer E. and Johanna Decker are buried in the Evergreen cemetery and have a photo of their headstone.
We've just started searching the Decker side of the family in the past 2 months. Would love to hear back from you and compare notes, perhaps your are kin to my husband. thanks and enjoyed reading your bio.

Betty Jean & John William Howe
Hello, Tom,
The graves for Betty Jean Howe (87284646) and John William Howe (87284647) are marked as "Disinterred-For Sale" on the Woodland Cemetery map spreadsheet and the sites are empty of markers. You may want to check with David Stewart first, but these pages may need to be removed or the cemetery changed to one of the "location not known" specifications.

Thornton Ellis
He was the husband to Thelma Ellis and father to Margaret Gillooly (POW) During the Pearl Harbor Attacks they were stuck in the Philippines for a long time before getting back on to the freighter to the states. I do not know the dates of his death. I am most certain this is him. They finally settled among San Francisco California and his daughter attended college there before his daughter Margaret settled in Texas and died in 2007.

Brister Cemetery
Hi Tom Decker,
You have entered info for several Bristers (Ann, Sarah, William S. & James) but have no cemetery listed for their burial.
These people, along with John Brister, are buried at Brister Cemetery in Seneca Twp, Monroe Co., OH, near Calais.
I have entered this cemetery by the name of Brister Cemetery. Location on Skin Creek Road, Calais, Monroe Co., OH.
Perhaps you could transfer the Bristers to the proper cemetery.
