Bio Photo Just Think!


Just think! some night the stars will gleam
Upon a cold, grey stone,
And trace a name with silver beam,
And lo! 'twill be your own.

That night is speeding on to greet
Your epitaphic rhyme.
Your life is but a little beat
Within the heart of Time.

A little gain, a little pain,
A laugh, lest you may moan;
A little blame, a little fame,
A star-gleam on a stone.


Isaiah 40:31

"But they that wait upon the Lord
shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint"

RE: Anna Bell Salts Winter
Thank you so much for your work on this! I have completed my grandmother's entry (except for listing all the rest of her siblings), but unfortunately I don't know who Dan's first wife was or the married name of his daughter Cleo. If you know, please message me the information.
I don't know what state you're in, but I'm in North Carolina and not likely to travel to Illinois, but thanks for the invitation.

Adding family
Hi there, I have in my possession a book stating that John Salts, born 1784 Married Elizabeth Barbee, born Nov. 1, 1799, on April 7, 1815 in Ohio. Later her name was written as Elizabeth Barber-Salts. Elizabeth's mother and father were Mary Smith or Schmidt, b.1760 and William Barbee or Barber, b.1759. I fully believe Elizabeth is their last daughter, born 11 months after Susannah.

Robin Scott Latoski
Hi Thomas, My name is Robin Latoski, a fellow member. I have been preparing a family tree for a dear friend of mine. Her name is Diana Annis (Kotnik). Her maternal grandmother is Bertha A Arbaugh (1897-1977). I was wondering if you have any information to how the family members passed. I found an article on that read Joseph Arbaugh, who did work for the B&O Railroad, was killed on May 1, 1890. He had been standing on the train when it was passing under a bridge, he was knocked off and killed by the wheels of train. The family being from Vinton County and many moved to Ross County. If you wouldn’t mind, I would like to collaborate as to the family that is connected to the surname Bethel and Annis. If I have a different family growing on my friends tree, you would be a incredible help to me. My email address is if you are interested in helping me. Thank you for your time,
Robin Latoski

Robert Sturgeon
Good morning Thomas. Hopefully you can assist me in clarifying the (2) headstones for my 3rd cousin Robert Sturgeon. One has his death on June 30, 1858 and the other has January 6, 1860. Are there (2) different Robert Sturgeon's? Your time and assistance will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Larry Dean Sturgeon / Washington, Daviess, Indiana / Springhill, Hernando, Florida

Pisgah Cemetery
I was wondering if in Ross County has a historical Society. In doing some hunting for Ellis graves, some had sunk very low and other disarray. I talked to Van Buren County Historical Society (I am in Iowa) I was told that they have work days cutting brush, grass and even pulling up sunken headstones. They do private cemeteries and regular cemeteries, one of which was away back (Over a mile off on a small almost a hill) from high way surrounded by a big field. Since there are Copperheads in the cemetery there are rattlesnake handlers that could help remove them. Hope this gives you some ideas. I hope some day to check out the cemetery. You have a lot of great info on these 2 sites.

Stookey burials in Strader Hill Cem, Ohio
Tom, I visited this cemetery yesterday for a relative and did some photo requests & took 2 other photos of a monument erected by the Stookey family in the cemetery. I have posted both photos (both sides of the monument) to Abraham, Eve, Isaac & Susanna Stookey's memorials. This info may help you confirm their data, although I note that Susanna's death year is in conflict with what is on her memorial. Hope this is of help to you.

Just wanted to say thank you for the transfer of Virgina's memorial to me for management. It was not necessary..but appreciated none-the-less. I will take good care of her.
Have a great evening,

Elizabeth Fout
Hi Tom, I added her parents & added birth & death locations. I was not able to add the Harrison township as it was not available. I will now go in and add her parents to Ancestry.
Thanks. Sher

Thank You for telling me about the cemetery -- I moved them to the other cemetery. Hope someone can come up with something for me I have hit a brick wall--back there.
I am from Nebraska and didn't know the cemeteries back there.
