Hi Nancy - I'll give you a guide to the Elder's at Fort Meigs.
Alexander and Samuel are in Block 3 Lot 61. Entering off SR#25, Block 3 is
first block on left. Lot 61 is in the eighth row of 16 rows about 1/3 of the
way toward south.
Margie is In Block M , Lot 84. Block M is further west on the right side.
There are four Blocks on the right side.  Block M is the third. Lot 84
is the first lot in the 6th of 16 rows right along the road.
Elizabeth and George are buried in the mausoleum on the third row on the
right side.  (I am estimating this from looking at the diagram; vault 117
and 123.
