Originally from SE Ohio. I've been researching the surnames of Fischer, Mayle, Singer, and Hardin(g) on my mother's side, and surnames of Marshall, Levandoski, Korpela, and Jokinen on my father's side.
Thank you for your response. I did find John Harding buried in Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Trimble. Find A Grave Memorial# 104612280.
I also found the death certificate for his wife Mary R. Rock Harding that indicates she was buried in Glouster, Ohio. I have ASSUMED that she is buried next to her husband at Queen of Heaven Cemetery in Trimble and therefore I have added a burial record for her under Memorial # 145379863.
I want to verify that Mary R. Rock Harding is in fact buried at Queen of Heaven Cemetery and possibly have a picture of her tombstone (if one exists) placed on her burial record. If you have an opportunity to visit the area I would greatly appreciate if you can verify this burial at Queen of Heaven cemetery.
I believe that Mary R. Rock Harding (1857-1913) and her son John Harding (1880-1905) are buried at the Glouster cemetery. I was hoping someone can find and take a picture of their tombstones. Please refer to burial records that I have set up for them under Memorial #145243845 and #145359882 including their death certificates.
RE: Draper Rush Lacy, You are correct. Draper is the the son of Remus and Nancy Collins. However, it is rumored that Nancy actually moved to Ohio with her children, and next door lived a man (Remus Rush), and the children were eventually given the Rush name. As for their graves, No one to my knowledge knows where they are buried. Most of us believe that Nancy is buried in West Virginia or Virginia. I was talking to one of Nancy's Grandsons before, and he even didn't know where she was buried. All he could remember was how she had children with different fathers. I am a decent of Remus and Nancy in this order....Their Son was Draper who was married to Amy. They had a daughter Rosa Rush who married Joseph Dalton. Rosa and Joseph had a daughter named Ruby who had a son by Denver Stevens named Robert Stevens (Denver and Ruby never married) Robert and Bridget Decost had a son Jeffrey Stevens. Jeffrey married Joy Anderson, and I was born. I hope I've helped you out in some way. Please feel free to ask me for anything that you may be stuck on!! Happy Hunting.
KORPELA All 3 are yours now. I wish we knew who put the markers on Singer and the other 3 people. It is driving me crazy! I found information on 2 of them, but the 3rd one is a baby, and I doubt I will ever find her.
Uno R. Korpela I pulled up Uno Korpela's memorial intending to transfer him to you. Unfortunately you made a duplicate of our memorial. If you delete your duplicate, I will be pleased to transfer our memorial to you along with his wife, Hannah Korpela. Find-A-Grave rules prohibit making duplicates. We also have a Raymond Korpela #105489351 in Maplewood who is most probably related to you, Korpela being rather uncommon. Look at Raymond and see if you think he is yours also. (If you use the edit button at the top of a memorial page, you can request a transfer in the box that pops up. F-A-G will send me an e-mail with your request, and that way I won't miss seeing it.)
Clyde Singer I made the transfer of Clyde to you. When I went to his memorial, I remebered that there was a sort of mystery associated with his marker. The marker was difficult to locate and get to--down a very steep hill and almost into the woods. I see many graves where there is only the little metal marker installed by the funeral home, but in this case somebody had added a license plate attached to a concrete block and painted it with the name and dates. There are 3 other similar markers next to the Singer marker. They all have Guinther Funeral Home metal markers with the license plates beautifully written in calligraphy letters. The person adding them knew the graves were there and came prepared to add the homemade markers. We are wondering if they are related to Clyde Singer in some way--maybe by marriage. The names are Floyd Wogan, Danielle F. Rooker, and Keister Weisfoot. It seems proabable that these are somehow connected. Check them out and you may find more relatives!
