RE: Picture of Jimmy Conlin's gravemarker
I don't have the image from October 2015. Perhaps you can right click, copy, & upload to her Find A Grave post.

Thank you for understanding.

RE: Ralph Hilleary
Sorry for the delay - I wanted to verify the address. The actual mailing address in Cumberland, MD. However, that is very misleading. The section where the burial is located is called Potomac Park, with appropriate signage along Rt. 220 S. of Cumberland. The burial itself is in the area of Potomac Park called Fairgo, due to its proximity to the Allegany County Fairgrounds. I think if I were listing it, I would say: Fairgo, Potomac Park, Cumberland, MD. However, it's up to you.

I appreciate your trying to correct this error that is spread throughout the internet. We can only do our best! Thank you!

RE: Ralph Hilleary
The stone has not been moved. The burial is on property owned by the family at the time. The location of his burial, Oldtown, is not right. In the 1810 census, it states that he lived in the Upper Oldtown District of Allegany County, whish is where the burial is located. This area is SOUTH of Cumberland, MD, along route 220 and the Potomac River. Oldtown, MD, is on the east side of Cumberland, miles and miles away. Somebody based the burial location upon census data, not knowing where Upper Oldtown was. The mistake has been carried forth ad infinitum on the internet. I have a photo of the old stone, bearing the names of Ralph, his wife, and son Levi, as well as the location of it. Oldtown, MD was named by Thomas Cresap, the pioneer. Some of his sons lived along the Potomac River, south of Cumberland, thus naming the area Upper Oldtown, as it was the upper part of the Potomac River, along which Thomas Cresap also lived.

RE: Mina Powell
She may have taken the Powell name since James & Rebecca took her into their home so young. But in the 1880 she is going by Snyder. Have you check her name as Wilamina? I don't know if that is the correct spelling.
Also my Husband's side have the name of Schneider in this line. There are MANY Spellings. You may want to check that out.
I will also continue to check once I am back in Ohio. Traveling now from Arizona.

RE: Mina Powell
In the 1880 census living with James and Rebecca Powell they have 2 additional children.
John Russel 'cousin' Who was the son of Margaret Lucas & Jonathan Russel who seem to have died before 1880
and Mina Synder at 1 'cousin'
but I can not connect her the Lucas Side of the family?
I have not done any research on the Powell family. But I will keep looking for more on her.
You may want to see if there is an adoption papers or custody papers in Marion Regarding her.

Monnett Family
Nice to hear (read) from you after all these months. I thought you lost interest.

Monnett Family
Dwight - what branch of the Monnett family do you follow?

I like to think I descend from the French branch, but that is obviously the source of all Monnetts, as you should know. My great-great grandmother was Hester Frances Monnett (1855-1934), daughter of Thomas Monnett Jr. (1810-1859) & Hester Ann Culp (1827-1910). She married Thomas Shank Kennedy (1848-1920).

Thomas Monnett Jr. was the son of Thomas Monnett (1779-1855) & Nancy Ann Slagle (1787-1838).

Thomas Sr. was the son of Abraham Monnett (1748-1810) & Ann Hilliary (1748-1833). Abraham moved from Calvert County to Frederick County, Maryland in 1763. He then moved from Frederick County, MD to Hampshire County, Virginia (now WV), c. 1790-92. Then, in 1802 he moved to what would become Pickaway County, Ohio on land given him for his service in the War of Independence.

Pauline Kennedy Smith
I connected her to her husband. I am trying to go back through my memorials and link people but am having neck problems so it is a slow process. I put Pauline in as a nickname. If you want to write a bio I will gladly post it or if you want me to transfer management I will do that too.

RE: Updates pending
I was looking for Stephen Kerr (1938-1911). He was the son of Robert Kerr (1807-1887), who has a large monument. I found several other family members buried around Robert, but not Stephen. According to his obituary he was buried there.

RE: Updates pending
Thank you! I have approved the edits.

I appreciate your additional information; I live in Florida and made a special trip to that cemetery when I was in Ohio on a business trip because I have a LOT of family buried there. I tried to photograph all of the stones, but some seem to have been reclaimed by the earth and many others have become very weathered and difficult-if not impossible- to read. It was disappointing for me because I was unable to locate the grave of my 3x great grandfather even though all documentation indicates he was buried there (I did locate the graves of his father and many siblings, nieces, nephews, etc. though).

Re: Correction for Bucyrus Cemetery
I believe that you accidently assigned this listing to the incorrect cemetery. The obituary lists Oakwood Cemetery in Bucyrus..."

You are absolutely right! I thank you for the correction. My Uncle will rest better, knowing he's in the right place. Corrected for both him and his Wife. Thank you.

John (Johannes) Foos (Fuss)
I have searched many times for John. I finally found where he was added to the transfers from Franklinton Cemetery. However Green Lawn did not always make a burial card for transfers that far back.
I am hoping someday to find him in a Lot Book while searching for some one else. Patty

Not sure what you want me to do ?? I just got home from vacation & now have access to my PC, so any corrections will be easier now.
1. Do you want me to delete my memorial? I realize that it is a later addition, but I couldn't get any cooperation from Bryan.
2. Do you want me to transfer to you ?
.. guess I'm just not clear.
