Just this last weekend I was researching in Preble Co., OH. Driving to the
library from my motel room, I drove past a cemetery. Turned around to go
back, even though I didn't know what cemetery any of my ancestors might be
buried in. Drove in the long drive and tried to decide where to park.....a
man was mowing, so I parked my car just past the spot he'd just mowed (so
he wouldn't get near my car). Got out my camera, book, pen, coffee,
started to stroll thru this lovely place, beginning in the already mowed
spot. And the first grave I looked at was my great, great, great
grandfather, Jonathan Foreman, right next to his daughter Rebecca and her
husband Andrew Jackson Shaffer.
I still have goosebumps!
