Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm Pat and have been researching my family tree for 30 years. My family lines are Bean, Gaw, Gore, Dennis, Kinnaird, Bullington, Judd, Terry, most all in the Putnam/Jackson County, TN area.

I have searched my local cemeteries in Ohio for other researchers and am happy to look for gravestones for someone far away. I know how thrilling it is to find another piece of the puzzle. I've had people help me so it's all about keeping it going.

For me, this is not a competition to see who can have the most memorials. My purpose is to capture the records of people who have passed for future generations who might one day look for their final resting place. I believe every person's grave should be respected.

If I manage a memorial for your family member and I am not also related I am happy to transfer to you. I do not follow the guidelines for transfers - I believe memorials should be managed by their family members or close friends, whatever the relationship. It would be selfish of me to keep your family members' memorial. Families have more information and photos and have an attachment to that person that a stranger doesn't have. So don't hesitate to ask for a transfer even if you're not in the 4-generation guideline!
You are welcome to use my photos in your family trees, ancestry, etc. A credit would be nice, but again, not why I do it.

RE: Sarah Weddle Harter @ Otterbein
Thanks again, Pat. Jacob's brother, Adam, is my 4G. Jacob's niece would marry Sarah Weddle's nephew. Sincerely, Evan

Thanks for the edit on Elias. I can't believe I did that, I knew better. Elias's sister,Violet (Gaw) Smith is my maternal ggg-grandmother. I can't even think of a good excuse for that one.

Again, thanks for catching that.

RE: Nolan Bullington
Youre welcome. I think Im the only active volunteer currently taking pictures at Spring Grove. My goal was to get the requests down to zero. It totaled over 1000 in late spring. Some of the photo requests, possibly yours, were listed over 3 years ago. It would be much easier if I didnt live in Indiana. Im glad that I could help youTom

RE: Mary and John Petry
Hi Pat,

I looked in the 1850 and 1860 census records on which listed John, but I didn't see a George listed as his brother. Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean anything. I'm actually related on Mary's side of the family (Ridenour), so I really don't know. I wish I could help.

I have deleted the duplicate that I put up at South Mound Cemetery for her. I am not related, I have a relative buried in that cemetery, and while there snapped photos of surrounding graves. I do check for dups before I put one up but missed this one. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
