I have been photographing hundreds of headstones and updating my orvf.com database with selected interments in Summit Township cemeteries over the past couple of years.
My main listing webpage is on a free server called findagrave.com and can be found here:
Surnames can be searched from the above link.
Of specific interest to those researching Monroe County would be:
Middle (St John's) Church Cemetery in Summit Township:
Evangelical Reformed Church Cemetery in Lewisville:
Friendship Cemetery in Lewisville:
Miltonsburg (St Peters) Church Cemetery in Malaga Township:
Buchanan Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Summit Township:
Bracken Ridge Church Cemetery in Summit Township:
Oaklawn Cemetery in Woodsfield:
Pioneer Cemetery in Woodsfield, Ohio:
Feel free to link to it from your web pages. You may use this text to create a new html page if you wish.
Visitors to individuals in findagrave can add additional photos of the headstone or the individual or simply leave digital flowers as a reminder of their visit.
There may also be individuals in these cemeteries that I have not listed. The only ones I have listed are those already in my database. New listings can be added by anyone registering at findagrave for free and adding their listings. Be sure the individual is not already shown.
I hope sharing this information will be of help to you and others. My main database contains only allied families and lineage-linked individuals, either of myself or my wife.
My direct Monroe County lines include the surnames: DISTLER, MORRIS, JUNG (YOUNG), LEISURE, VAN FOSSEN and SWAIN.
While not 100% documented, my direct line is to William MORRIS b. 1782 Greene Co., PA d. 1843 in Monroe Co., OH.
