|Bio and Links|
I joined Find-A-Grave to "pay forward" the help I have received from others. |
Most of the cemeteries, in Defiance and Williams County Ohio, have been read/walked and indexed. I would be willing to look up and send information if requested. I am most knowledgeable about the cemeteries in Farmer Twp. and Washington Twp., Defiance County; and for St. Joseph Twp., Springfield Twp. and Pulaski Twp., in Williams County.
OF INTEREST to others may be the link to the Williams County Ohio Public Library (WCPL) obituary index. Anyone who has died in the Williams County, Ohio area since 1870 is most likely on the index. Many Defiance County, Ohio obituaries were included in the Williams County newspapers. I suggest searching by using the last name only. Keep in mind the spellings may vary, so try several options if you do not get results on the first search. If a name is listed more than once, it is because an obit was published in more than one local paper. Not all of the papers have been added, so check back often to see if there is a new entry for one of your Ancestors.
The obituary index direct link is

You can request obits online and they will be sent by email.
The link to the WCPL library history and genealogy department is
http://www.mywcpl.org/local (updated 01-2017)
The above URL will have links to Williams and Defiance County Genealogy Society websites.

Thank you. I remember my Grandmother talking about it on several occasions. She was about 17 at the time. As a child, I kept trying to "picture" how he had sat up on that pole.

Thank you for your work on the Albus family in Powhatan cemetery. My grandmother was Luella Albus Ensley Carruthers.
|Sally Miller Hindley||Keller|
Mary Joan, would you like me to transfer the Kellers in Myers cemetery over to you? I entered all the names to findagrave only becuse I live right across the street.
|Rita Zipfel||Frank Keller|

If you would be willing, the best thing to do would be to turn her site over to you. Perhaps I could contact you concerning the Twigg family when I have time to work on that branch?
|Todd James Dean||Ellis's middle name|
This vast family has thick, vast records. I'm not sure where that middle name was from. I will keep a eye out. Sorry about that.
