Bio and Links
Bio Photo I just wanted to leave a big YOUR WELCOME message here. It would get too daunting to respond to each and every one of you. I'm just trying to help out fellow genealogists. If, you would like to use my pictures you have my permission.

I have uploaded many photographs that I have "touched up" to remove information about living person(s). The reason I have done this is for the privacy of the living individuals. I do try to include the location in which the burials are at in the cemetery in the caption of the close-up picture of the person's name on the headstone. If I have added something to a memorial that you do not wish to be there, please ask politely and I will gladly remove it. Please include their memorial number in your request!!

Please use the following links to find where your relative is buried and please include their section number and plot (if possible) in your picture request......

Gethsemani Cemetery (Lima, OH) Listings

Westside, St. John's (including Resurrection), Walnut Grove, Landeck (aka St. John the Baptist Catholic), and Hartshorn Cemetery all near Delphos, OH Listings

Woodlawn in Lima....If you should know what the section and plot are for your family member PLEASE include it in your picture request. Again, this is also a very large cemetery.

Memorial Park Cemetery in Lima....This cemetery is HUGE (I have 20+ section maps for this cemetery)!!! If, you should know the location of the burial PLEASE include it either in your picture request or in the plot location of the memorial. It takes about 2 weeks to receive locations for a list of 28 names via USPS. Also, if your relative goes by any other name, nickname, or the like please include that in your photo request. Please be patient with your requests as I only have so much spare time to take the photos. Thank you.
The cemetery is also working on "digging out" flat headstones and putting gravel around them. This will be a long process, because this cemetery is very large with very few sections that have standing headstones. Your relative that I could not find MIGHT be one of the ones that has a headstone that is buried.

RE: Smith Austin
Yeah, you'd think he would be buried in Cave Hill National or in the CSA Sec of Cave Hill.

Sorry to report there's no existing marker for Smith Austin in the location given by the cemetery, Sec. F, Lot 130. I'll add a photo of the site to his memorial.

Her father was Chester Franklin Wade. She was born in Troy, Ohio. She moved to southern California in her late 20's where she married Jack Kenneth Beaver and had two daughters. In addition to her two brothers, she had a sister named Elizabeth who died in infancy. This is her eldest daughter reporting. The same daughter that sent you information before. Thanks for doing all the hard work on Find a Grave.

Is there any way that you could attach Clarence Pohlabel to his daughter Mary Elaine Pohlabel Bodiker? Clarence is from Lima, Ohio is attached to his sons, but not Elaine. Elaine's mother is Helen Lance. Elaine is my deceased great grandmother.
