I am an active genealogist (Polish/German & Irish) from Buffalo (Cheektowaga) New York. Member of WNYGS,PGSNYS & BIGS. Recently completed the restoration of our first settlers graveyard, the Bennet Family cemetery. Currently, I am restoring and transcribing the Polish National Catholic Church-Holy Mother of the Rosary Cathedral's cemetery on Dale Road, as all the early death records burned. In addition, I am recording the deaths that were buried in the abandoned community town (Union Road)cemetery in Cheektowaga, NY.

Maureen, we are going to approach the trustees about reading these stones in the near future.

Kistler, Jacob
We *think* we have found Jacob Kistler's marker. The picture has been posted, however I must add that the stone needs to be excavated in order to be validated. Without permission from the township trustees to do so, we cannot move the stone. You would need to secure permission through the Marion Township Trustees for us to remove the stone and read it as it is at about a 60% degree angle towards the ground on its carved face.

Kisler reply
Hi Maureen, in reply to you message, the cemetery has no records, no maps. Because the cemetery was part of a Federal land takings in 1942 for the construction of the Scioto Ordinance, and then became property of the township trustees (Ohio law), we are working with Federal authorities to see if the three hundred known graves before the condemnation date (the date all civilians had to vacate the land) had been recorded. After the war, with the family's gone, and the land sold to new owners, there was no one to maintain the graves. The cemetery was first walked and enumerated in 1976. It was "restored" in the 1970s, and now in 2017, we are rewalking it to see which grave markers remain, but also to try and discover which graves were removed to other cemeteries.

Kisler, Likens Cemetery
Hi Maureen. We are in the process of "re-walking" Likens Cemetery in Marion County, Ohio where you have asked for photos of the Kisler graves. During the last walking, done in 1976, only Jacob's stone was found. There was no stone found for Catherine. Because of the frail condition of the cemetery, we began a process of "re-walking" the grounds to see which stones still survived in 2017. I walked it in May, and again with several other people last week. No Kisler stones were found. That said. we did find several stones that someone "sank" into the ground, probably because they broke off their bases. We cannot uncover the stones or even foil them until we get permission from the township trustees. The 1976 walking was done by the Midlam's, and they were (thank God) very specific about what they found. So we have a good basis for looking for things, but at present, it is unlikely that we will find anything for Catherine, but I am hopeful we will find Jacob.

You're welcome! I think it's one of the earliest of the original Hitchcock burials since it's in the old section and not it the huge plot over in Section B. Not sure. I could never figure out why it was over there and not with the rest. I'm just glad I was able to identify it as it's barely legible. Kathi
