Now that I am retired, my new passion is genealogy. I have found wonderful information on the findagrave site. |
If I have made a memorial for someone you would like to manage other than my own family, please don't hesitate to ask. Also, any photos that I have added may be used without asking my permission. It is my intent to share them.

Thanks for the info, Deanna. Glad to get that corrected.
Oh dear, I'm not very technologically savvy... And I don't have my own FB page, I use my husband's. But all that said, how do I join the Mayfield group???

Thank you so much for the pic of his headstone! I don't suppose you wrote down the info. I can't quite read it... It looks like he was born 25 Dec 188x, and died Sep __ 188x.
Thanks for any help you can give!

Unfortunately, I have not researched the Colliers further back than John :(
|Marshall R||Pearly W Cook|
My name is Marshall and I suggested a couple of small edits to the memorial of Pearly Cook to link him with his parents and siblings. I am a 3rd great-grandson of his sister Dora (Cook) Tedrick. Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you for your consideration,
|Michael McDaniel||Odle and McDaniel|
Deanna, I would be honored to maintain the memorial for Jamie. I am a third cousin to her and her brother Michael E. McDaniel.
I will send a request on the memorial for you.
|Mike Ransom||RE: Graves Family|
sorry for the long delay here. What little I know is not sourced well, but is found at
William Graves (9) married Lydia Dugan on 18 March 1806 in Portsmouth, Scioto Co., Ohio. He died about 1812. Some proof of his parentage is still needed. Lydia secondly married Aaron Goodwin in June 1816. They lived in Delhi Twp., just southwest of Cincinnati, from the time of their marriage until 1835, when they moved to Indiana.
William and Lydia may have had another son. A boy 10-15 years of age was living with Aaron and Lydia in the 1820 census, and the 1830 census showed a male, 15-20. The child may have been a younger brother, or possibly Lydia's son by William Graves. (R-3)
Children - Graves
+40. Thomas Graves, b. 1 Dec. 1806, m. Mary A. Mixer, 27 Nov. 1834, d. 7 Aug. 1898.

I'd be honored if you use my photo!

I wish I had more information to share. All I know is my un-sourced assumption that Tabitha Dug(g)an married Zachariah Graves, and Lydia married Z's brother, William. I have this note on Thomas, but have no info on the EWING referred to:
THOMAS GRAVES was born at Portsmouth, Ohio, December 1, 1806, a son of William and Lydia (Dugan) Graves. When our subject was six years old, his father died, and he was reared by an uncle, John Ewing, of Whitewater township, with whom he remained until his twenty-second year, receiving such education as the subscription schools of the community afforded. After leaving his uncle's, his first employment was with the Kanawha Virginia Salt Company, which became bankrupt, and as he had invested his savings with that company he was left without a cent. After several years miscellaneous trading up and down the river, he bought a farm of ninety-six acres in Columbia township, February 18, 1840, and has since been successfully engaged in agricultural pursuits. His farm is situated on "Indian Hill", on a direct trail between the two Miami rivers. Indian Hill received its name from a sad circumstance--the killing by an Indian of a white man who was watching for deer at a salt lick on what is now Mr. Graves' farm. On November 27, 1834, Mr. Graves married Mary A., daughter of Ebenezer and Deborah (Hubbard) Mixer, and to this marriage four children have been born: William E., who farms the old place; Ebenezer, who died April 19, 1874; John, who died April 4, 1892, and Lydia, who died February 27, 1893. The death of their mother occurred May 20, 1884. In politics Mr. Graves is a Democrat.
—from HISTORY OF CINCINNATI AND HAMILTON COUNTY, OHIO, by J. M. RUNK, (CINCINNATI, OHIO, S B NELSON & CO, 1894.)
and a note about William:
Served as a private in Capt Caleb ODLE's Company, (Probably from Ross County); Served from Oct 26 until Nov 12, 1813. Part of company served from July 28 until Aug 18, 1813.
