Laenda Garling Harig 25909606
Forgot to mention it appears John & Catharine's daughter is also buried there with her husband, John Harig. Her Find a Grave Memorial is above and her gravestone lists nee Garling.

Levi & Catharine Donat
I found a copy of Levi & Catharine Donat in the Jacobs Union Cemetery records. I created memorials for them in Find A Grave, Levi, 171636937 and Catharine, 171636971. I am more than willing to transfer them if you want to manage their memorials. The person who photographed quite a bit of Jacobs Union took the stones next to them, Charles A. Donat 1845-1927 & the Rev. Willoughby Donat 1841-1920 so maybe he couldn't read their stones especially if they were in the shade. Let me know if you want me to transfer.

RE: Johann Garling 149876988
There is a book on Jacobs Union Cemetery at our local library. It has some records from the cemetery by rows which is where I got my records from originally. I have been trying to add the gravestones to the records I added. I know someone took quite a few pictures in Jacobs Union but I have found some not added after that was done. If you would like I can check and see if Levi and Catharine are listed. Let me know. I am related to the Oswalds in Jacobs Union.

RE: Johann Garling 149876988
Basic translation of the stone from German to English:

Johann Garling born 15 February 1816 and died 30 November 1843. Aged 27 Years 9 Months and 15 Days. Lived in marriage with Catharina Sechler 3 Years 5 Months (rest is underground).

I listed the above on his memorial as well. The bottom part Lebte in der Ehe mit means "lived in marriage with" and you see this on quite a lot of the old stones. Some of the old German stones list the number of children they have between boys and girls. I have seen enough old German stones in my family to see some of the German words and know them. The rest I ask friends who know the German language.

Hope this helps in your research.

I added your information into Agnes' bio section and updated her memorial to reflect the new information. Thank you for the heads-up on this new material.

RE: Pending edits
Under the edits tabs, the section that says "edits sent to me that I need to review". Basically I want to link him with his parents.

RE: HAMM (Jacob & his line)
Hello Chuck: Looking over these notes & it seems I recall asking for a copy (will reimburse you). David is Jacob's son & bro to my Andreas. You & I are "cousins" ! How about that?
Anxious to hear more....Sylvia.

RE: Sylvester Hariff
The Union Soldier in that grave was in the 125th Ohio Infantry. He died shortly after the battle of Chickamauga and is buried among men who died as a result of that battle. I could not find a Hariff (of any variant spelling) who fit the regiment and date and place of death other than Sylvester who is a 100% match. I hope this helps explain.
