Find A Grave Memorial# 168088894
I was happy to read how much effort you put into Find A Grave as far as researching the person in question. I was hoping you might have proved this is the same George Dietz that I am researching. He was born in New Athens IL. and supposedly died there, but there is no proof. I know his mother comes from OH as a child. But I can't see him being away from home at age 17 unless for health reasons. But I wasn't aware of any family left in ohio. If you have any info I would appreciate it. Mother Anna Maria Blum Dietz 1839-1879 Father Frantz (Francis) Dietz 1836-1873

Hello - may I ask where you obtained the nickname "Jennie" for her as I cannot find that. She is my 3rd great grandmother. I hope any information you have on her will help me establish who her parents were.

RE: Zachariah Minnear
Interesting, I did a google search for Confederates buried in Ohio and ZMinnear was one. So far he's one of three US troops out of 84 in the list. Must be a glitch in the search or something!

Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Maude Alford in Glendale Cemetery (Memorial# 51839656).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of Ohio Obituaries, where her obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, Zella [or your full name if you prefer]

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,

Geesytown cemetery
My grandfather ,Walter Couch memorial #12851533
Is buried at Geesytown. I remember visiting the cemetery as a teenager abd the Graves were right behind the retaining wall. I've tried to locate the Graves of my grandparents, with no success.
Did your research locate the sites and headstone?
My concern is the renovation that was done on the wall several years ago. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks so much for the photo! I live in Colorado, a fair way from the Indiana/Illinois/Ohio region where most of my ancestors ended up. I rely on wonderful people like you to further my research.

Thanks again!
