I live in Madison County Ohio. I became interested in family history with the passing of my father in 1996. I am mainly interested in taking care of what I consider my family. There are many names that I descend from : Bushong, Barringer, Hair, Slicer, McGee, Clapsaddle, Howenstine, Wilgus, Moore, McCreary, Rhodes, Chamberlain, Hackelroth, Pearce, Perkins, Cooper, Dorsey, Pope, Hoffman and Baldwin on my fathers side. Snouffer, Morgan, Stump, Rannebarger, Pool, Rogers, Baumgarder, Miller, Holt, Childs, Montgomery and Shadwick on my mothers side. My children's maternal family surnames are Block, Anker, Haberstich, Bendel, Rosenbaum, Barnus, Weinstein, Spangler, Zimmer, Rainey, Cox , Scott, McClaskie, Schellhaas, Glass, Kent, Karns, Bennett, Lewi, May, Cohn, Freund, Stich. I am always willing to share any information that I have on our family. I WILL NOT POST ANY PICTURES FROM SALEM FIELDS CEMETERY IN BROOKLYN NEW YORK DUE TO SECURITY CONCERNS BY THE CEMETERY STAFF. I have to add a special thank you to Anthony for all of the Bayside pictures and Chris for all of the Beth Emeth pictures.

I tried Emailing you directly, but the message was returned so I am sending it publicly
I believe that you have done a great service by posting information on various cemeteries in the New York area. I note that you posted http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=Peyser&GSfn=Bernard&GSbyrel=all&GSdy=1895&GSdyrel=in&GSst=36&GScntry=4&GSob=n&GRid=108466674&df=all& and indicated that the birthplace was Ostrava, Moravskoslezsky (Moravian-Silesian), Czech Republic. However, the gravestone clearly says that the location was in Prussia. The Ostrava that you cite was NEVER in Prussia; it was in Moravia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regions_of_the_Czech_Republic. The gravestone clearly indicates that the "Ostrava" mentioned was in Prussia. At that time the only Ostrowo in Prussia was in the Grand Duchy of Posen, Prussia, and is today Ostrów Wielkopolski, Wielkopolska, Poland.
It is clear from http://vsff.rivido.de/00795.jpg that there were many Ostrows and variations on that name, but none was in Prussia before being in the Austrian Empire. So I am wondering if you have any citation to show that the "Ostrava" referred to was in fact in Moravia rather than in Prussia.
You might be interested in some of the articles that I have written on the subject. They are listed below my name in my Bibliography. I have been in Ostrów Wielkopolski and have a good friend from there.
Thanks. I look forward to your reply.

Charles Jarvis While it's difficult to be sure, I found numerous independent records showing Charles' middle name as "Ovid". I submitted an edit, but wanted to explain. He was my wife's 3rd cousin. I've been in touch with his daughters, Jayne and Jennifer, and might contact them to ask about it. Gary
Harry Aaron in Mayfield Found the section where his Mom and Brother are buried as I did the photos in 2014. There is no Marker or listing for Harry for he may be buried with Mom Sarah or Brother Charles and Spouse Carre. They were cremated. please double check or see if you can Locate his plot??? Charles could possibly be Harry?
Rainey's Thanks for reply and working with me on this . This is my third attempt at contact through my work computer today. I typed a very long reply twice but as I said , work computer won't send them for some reason so this one will be short. James and Rachel are my G,G,G,grandparents .Their daughter Margaret is my G,G,Grandmother ( married Amos Starkey) In contact with four living decedents in their late 90's . I have pictures of the four Rainey daughters . James and Rachel had 7 children and I have info on all 7 . More than willing to share pictures and info but I'll need my home computer to do so . Just trying to say hello for now and let you know I'll be responding in depth once I'm home . Regards Robert Patterson .
Helena Silberberg Greetings - Calvary Cemetery isn't very cooperative in looking up grave locations to Find-A-Grave photography volunteers - they'll only do 3 at a time and recently cut me off from asking for any more locations. I was trying to add locations for the very large backlog of photo reqs for the cemetery; there's over 400 requests. Those that include the grave plot get photographed first, so I'd recommend that you add that info to the Find-A-Grave memorial page. Call 216-641-7575 for the cemetery office; they'll provide you 3 locations without charging you for them.
