Bio and Links
I am currently the president of the Logan County Genealogical Society. We are working on redoing our cemetery books that were written in the early 1980's. If you are local and might be interested in walking and recording a cemetery, please contact me.

I am involved in several volunteer activites as well as working part time. Please forgive me if I don't thank you immediately for filling one of my requests. But know that I am very grateful for everyone that takes the time to find and photograph one of my ancestors headstones. I know the time and work involved. If I have fulfilled a request for you and you thanked me, know that I enjoying walking the cemeteries, taking the photos and knowing that I am helping someone else research their family. I will acknowledge your thanks as soon as possible as I am working an emails from several months ago.

Many of the memorials I have set up are as a result of recording the cemeteries and not because they are related to me. If I have a memorial of your family member, ask and I will transfer it as long as they are not related to my husband or myself. Again, please give me time.

I would like to give a great big Thank You to the sextons of Greenwood Cemetery-Degraff, Fairview Cemetery-West Liberty, Bellefontaine Cemetery-Bellefontaine, and all the staff at Jennings-Farley Funeral Home/Highland Memorial Gardens-West Liberty. Because of these wonderful, helpful people, I have a fun time volunteering for Find-A-Grave. They all make my search for the requested headstones very simple.
Families I am researching include: Stayrook/Wren, Allison/Easton, Dawson/Wilson (from Canada) and Lindsey/Aiken.

RE: Amey Infant
I saw that after I sent you the message. That family has 2 other living children and I wonder if those are their birth dates and "someday" they'll all be buried together. Or do you know for sure there are other babies there? Their grandmother's obituary mentions Faith and 2 other boys but the dates are different.

RE: Photo
I have 41 Wrens roosting in my family tree. No Daniel, none from or ending up in Champaign County.
Most are from Logan County, there are quite a few in Plum Cemetery. Been several years since I have been there, (I live in South Carolina now.) but if my memory is correct, you enter the cemetery from the east side of the mausoleum, go all the way to the back where the drive turns to the left. Right after the turn, stop, and the Minnich plots are on the right, and directly across the road to the left, should be Lucinda Wren Minnich, and a host of Wren markers. Lucinda Wren's parents were Robert Lloyd Wren (1824-1886) and Mary Ann Scott; Robert LLoyd's parents were John Allen Wren (1793-1856) and Ester Alexandria Lloyd. They were all originally from Virginia. Robert Lloyd and some of his siblings are in Plum Cemetery, and John Allen and wife and some siblings buried in Illinois. There are 25 Wren's recorded as buried in Plum Cemetery.

Thank you very much for the monument photo of Tony Joe Fullerton. Tony was my 1st cousin 1x removed. Although I am still not in the area, I grew up in Logan and Auglaize Counties.
I have very strong ties to the Hovers, (my mother was a Hover) the Minnichs, Fintons, Bogarts. I am shirt tail relation to almost everyone who grew up in Lakeview and Stokes Township. I noticed you are researching the Wren family in your bio. Lucinda Wren Minnich was my great grand mother. She is buried in Plum Cemetery. I have family buried in almost every cemetery in Logan County and Auglaize County. The Hovers were some of the original settlers involved in the organization of Huntsville and McArthur Township, and Logan County. Hovers built the first church there. I have several family members in Huntsville Cemetery.
Thank you again for honoring my request for the photo.

Thank you so much for the photo of the tombstone for Mary Skidmore Lane. President of the Logan County Genealogical Society? You might be my new best friend. Wish I could afford to come out there and spend about a month.
