Bio and Links
Bio Photo ORVF has been a pioneer of online genealogy since 1997. Author and family historian A.David Distler created the website after his book titled "Ohio River Valley Families" was published in early 1997. ORVF was, and still is, a digital archive for many additions and corrections to the book. The database is very comprehensive, remaining focused on related individuals, their ancestors and descendants, who once settled the Ohio River Valley. A few notables in this database are George W Bush and George H W Bush, Louis Capet (King Louis VII of France), Daniel Boone, Stephen Hopkins and Francis Cooke (of the Mayflower), Zachary Taylor, Dwight Eisenhower, Ulysses S Grant, Jefferson Davis, Virginia Katherine McMath (Ginger Rogers), Myra MayBelle Shirley (Belle Starr), James Madison, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D Roosevelt and Richard Nixon.

I am trying to find the Zion Evangelical cemetery,the directions shows it is close to the Zion Memorial cemetery. I found the Zion United Church of Christ cemetery,but I did not find any Hogue's there.Also found the Zion Memorial Gardens.The picture that is posted of the cemetery looks nothing like the cemetery where I was at.Could you give me directions?
Someone posted a picture of Zion United church for the Zion Evangelical cemetery.Are they the same cemetery? If they are, I could not find my people.

John Crock # 39383797
I uploaded a photo of John Crock's original headstone, which you may know was replaced with what is now in St. Mary's of Fulda. In the photo caption, I explain where the stone is located. If you want to change the order the photos, that would be understandable. If you prefer the stone picture be removed, just let me know. In my opinion, these original stones are beautiful and if it belonged to one in my family I would want it included. But, that is me. Please let me know? I had contacted Findagrave about whether or not these qualified to be a cenotaph, but because the location where the stones currently stand have never been an interment location, they aren't "cenotaphs".

Hi Dave,I noticed that it shows David Bintz is buried at St.Johns Middle Church.That is incorrect,he is buried at the Monroefield Cem.I posted his stone and did that whole cemetery.

Archer Cemetery, Carlisle (Noble Co.) Oh
The cemetery pictures you posted on Archer's Cemetery are actually 2 different Cemeteries. The picture of the Church is St. Michael's Catholic Church (Carlisle). The "field" shot is the Carlisle Methodist Church Cemetery.

Thanks for your help
