Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an avid ancestry nut!! I was encouraged all my life by my father to be proud of our diverse family roots in America. From New England,Edward Doty of the Mayflower, to Indiana and speading throughout this great country. I have made connections with distant relatives all over the world. My family lines are outlined in my virtual cemeteries.As you my well guess almost 400 years of family ancestry encompasses numerous,diverse and interesting people from my past.

I would be happy to correct any information,add bios or family links. I would be happy to transfer a memorial to a direct relative via the edit tab on the memorial. Most of my memorials are on my direct lines.

You have my permission to use any of the photos I have submitted for your personal use. I am always glad to help with your ancestry search.

Thanks to all those interested and dedicated Gravers who have sent edits my way. Please accept this as my deepest thanks for your help in completing my memorials.

Jeff Lightner
RE: Eva and Mathias Lightner

I decided to create a memorial for Eve Lightner, wife of Mathias, even though we don't know her maiden name.

Thorn -Apologies for incorrect info
Please disregard the previous info I sent you regarding the marriage of Georgiana to Francis S. Thorn. His wife, Georgia, was Georgia Stevenson. My apologies. sjmohr

Georgiana Thorn
Hello, Cathleen. I have looked for the Chesebro & G. Thorn headstones, but so far, have not found them in Section 18. I will look again!

I think Georgie/Georgia married Francis Shaw Thorn, memorial #114122075. He lived/worked in Toledo at the Thorn Bros. Chair Mfg Co. Appears in the Toledo City Directory in various years around the 1870 time frame.

1870 Census/Toledo resided @155 Madison Ave. w/ Georgia, age 23, b. NY. His name on the 1870 census is Frank S. Thorn, age 29, b. NY, occupation: Chair Mfg.

in 1870, 2 mo old child died, Apr. 22, 1870, Toledo, buried in Forest Cemetery.

Not sure if this following is daughter of same Frank/Francis S. Thorn & Georgiana: Amelia Louise Thorn (b.1870) m. Charles Van Bergen 15 Dec. 1896 in Buffalo, NY. Parents listed as Georgiana Thorn and Frank S. Thorn.

I will look again for their headstones next time I get to the cemetery.

I hope maybe the above info sheds some light on the "Georgian Thorne" mystery!

Edward Doty marker
Dear Cathleen,
I'm a descendant of Edward Doty. I have proven my lineage back to Benjamin his grandson or great grandson. I would love to visit the cemetery on my trip to MA this summer. Can you help me locate the marker in your picture?

Cathleen, check the date on her marker. I think the date showd 1863 not 1869. Let me know your thoughts.
