Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family lineage is through George Steel(e) who settled in Bedford County, PA. That lineage is George, Philip, George, George, Moses, Charles Edward and Paul Victor Steele. My family moved to Holmes Co, Ohio and Moses and many family members migrated to St. Joseph Co, Indiana where most of us have stayed in the general area. I have 3 grown children, 4 grandchildren and 4 step-grandchildren.

I am fairly new to deep genealogy but have always wanted to know who my family was.

I am willing to take photos of local cemeteries if requested. I like to take photos of the area where the interment is to give the viewer a little better sense of the tranquility of the cemetery. I am a member of Friends of Silverbrook, the city owned cemetery here in Niles. We do restoration work on many of the headstones at the cemetery. Take some time to visit the website.

RE: Strong family
Hi Janet, Yes, I am the son of John Wesley Strong and of Florence I French Strong. I have been working on both sides thru Ancestry for several years and have my mothers' notes (along with those of several other family historians). Several days ago, I realized some did not have Find-A-Grave records or they were incomplete so I created an account and have been applying edits as needed and creating a few new accounts as I'm able to. I don't know that I want to administer a large volume of memorials though. I am comfortable letting you maintain the accounts but thank you for offering to transfer them.

RE: Roadblocks
Sounds great, thank you!! It def. gets hard sometimes when looking for information prior to computer use, seems as so many records were lost or destroyed. Currently, trying to compare sources, obits, death certificates, cemetery records to see what is actually accurate. haha, very time consuming. Have a great weekend.

RE: Eliza Jinkins
Thank you! I will take a look and see if there is anyone else. Doing so gives me a research project and a way to link and keep track of where everyone is at. Looking forward to it, thanks again.

Eliza Jinkins
Thank you for transferring Eliza Jinkins to me. The Franklin Cemetery is one that I always heard about growing up, but I never realized how many people in my family are buried there. Appreciate you creating her memorial! :)

RE: John and Zoe Foster in Silverbrook
I am related but very remotely. Thank you for the offer but I do not need you to transfer them to me. Thank you for all that you do for this wonderful site.

Thanks so much I made the correction. Please let me know when you post new pictures. I'm sure your photos will have sharper detail.
