Thankful Thursday: Find A Grave Successes

Woo-hoo! I love when a receive and email that says " Find A Grave Photo Request: Success!" I'm going to share a few that I've recently received:

Patty did a GREAT job photographing the gravemarkers for Michael Carrington Geisler and his second wife Sarah Jane Drew.

Michael Geisler was born Nov. 20, 1830 in Bavaria and died Oct. 1, 1920 in Franklin County, Ohio. His wife Jane (interestingly both were on their second marriage when they wed). Jane was born May 12, 1841 in Ireland and died Mar. 5, 1928 in Franklin County, Ohio.



Patty took a second picture showing the top of the stone. Kudos to you for photographing multiple angles! I wonder if the little white stones that say father and mother behind the large monument belong to this plot or another. Hmmm...

Next, Janie Fletcher fulfilled my photo request for Reverend Merrit Ithamer Comfort.  Merrit born Aug. 28, 1866 in Lincoln County, Ontario, Canada and died May 2, 1944 in Vandalia, Montgomery County, Ohio. He is the son of my third great grandfather (and 2nd cousin 6 times removed) Ithamer Comfort and his wife Susannah Moote.


Merrit is buried in Bear Creek Cemetery in Drexel, Montgomery, Ohio. I'll be honest. I don't think I'll ever get to Montgomery when there is so much research to do in Franklin County and then in Canada. So... THANK YOU Janie.


Thank you ladies for your work. I appreciate it.
