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.

Good morning, I have added a few dates, parents of William, & will add them to the children I have found so far. As for William H. Mellott's birth I only have abt. 1847 from the census records. He was in the 1880 Ellsworth, Tyler Co. WV census dated 23 June 1880, his death date is 5 Sept 1880 so I figure he died there but have found no proof to date.

Lorinda had a 2nd husband, no children to him, Luther L. Galloway b: 3 Feb 1871 Pleasants Co. WV d: 28 Sept 1949 Hancock Co. WV

Lorinda is buried in Sugar Grove Cemetery, Empire, Jefferson Co. Ohio Her death date is 11 May 1918 in Stratton, Jefferson Co. Ohio

Thank you for the time & effort you put into this. Connie

Thank you for updating the memorial for Sophia G. Plugge Nuckles #87673766.

I wonder if you might have access to her obit. It would be great to have it for my family tree research.

I would be pleased if you would read my Bio and visit my parents' memorials by clicking on their links.

Hello Tom!
There are some updates i would like you to make to some of the memorials, mainly links to parents. I hop you don't mind. To Frank Delphie, Howard, and William Clarence add the father's 87247381 and the mother's 87247383

To George Thomas (died in 1946) add father's 87247395 and mother's 87247400.

Thank you. I know this is a public email but i have no other way to request that you do this. If you wish, you may transfer control of these memorials to me and i will take care of it.

Hi Tom - I'm looking for a Gladys Beckham Springer, supposed to be buried here, born about 1904 - this memorial of yours does not match with the gravestone which has been added - do you know what happened on this one?
Any help appreciated ~ Shirleen

Hello there!
Wondering if you are related to any of the Harrison's that you have memorials for?
I am in the process of doing research of my family. Two of the Harrison's you have are also relatives to me. Wondering if there is a connection?
