Concord Presbyterian Cemetery
Hilen Ketchem Galbraith
Ms. MacRae, I would have rather replied to your request for transfer via email as it seems you value privacy.

I am not being rude, but I am going to decline your request for transfer of the H.K. Galbraith memorial to you.

I spent close to a year researching the family of Rev. R.C. Galbraith while creating a pamphlet on his influence and contributions to the Chillicothe Presbytery in general, and the Concord Presbyterian Church in particular.

Before I could add the obituaries for the Galbraith family members, I fell ill and spent the better part of the past five years in and out of various V.A. hospitals for service connected injuries and illnesses. I have just within last couple of months been able to get back to graving.

I have both, the 11 April 1932 funeral notice, and the 21 January George B. Bitzer memorial resolution on the life of Attorney Galbraith, written for the Ross County Bar Association. I will add them to his memorial within the next couple of day, so there is no reason to break up the fruits of my research just to add an obituary.

Again, my intentions are not to be rude, but all the only memorials that I have ever created are for people that have meant a great deal to me.

RE: Peter Wilking
Thanks. Our source is a lifelong resident of Washington County and heavily into our family tree research, so we definitely consider reliable. We presume the info was found in church records. Good point about Peter's father passing away before Peter's birth! We did not notice that. Thanks again as well as for all the work you've done on FindAGrave.

RE: James Gray photo
Happy to have helped out but sorry the picture is not very good. I couldn't overcome the lichens or whatever they are on the surface and I don't clean stones. Note there is the name Alma H. also on the stone with dates October 8, 1902 - April 12, 1995.

RE: Ellen Burke Curtin
Do you know who Terry Quinn's parents are - or grandparents? I grew up miles away from the Quinns BUT we did go to Oil City a few times and met at Bill Quinn's cottage and went swimming and had a HUGE party. I did not know them well, but at least could fill in many times with names and actions. Are you researching them for yourself or some special reason??

RE: Ellen Burke Curtin
Mayme (Mary Ellen) is my maternal grandmother. She stayed with Agnes and Ben Martin a few times for various reasons - she married Thomas Henry Varley in 1912 and lived on the South Side of Youngstown almost immediately. Had 4 children . If you check my Family Tree - O'Hara-Connors-Varley-McCloskey and you can get alot of info. Who did you say you were related too? Be sure to use the "Find a Person" button and you will at least get to the "layer" you may be looking for - If there is anything you would like to know, feel free to contact me at and I will do what I can to help.

She is my maternal grandmother, so I felt it was only fitting. Most of rest of family in same plot area, so little by little.
