More new mystery pictures

This is an example of some of the new pictures I have added to the Photo Album of unknown pictures. The box of pictures belonged to my grandmother who died several years ago.

These pictures were important to some family many years ago and I would like to give pictures back to them. Some of the pictures are 80-100 years old. Please contact me with any questions or comments at

Please take a look at the photos posted on this website. Most are from Gallia county, Ohio where my Langdons lived. It would be wonderful if some one could recognize any one at all here. If so, please, please contact me. Thanks, Karen

From the Langdon Bible

Who are these people?  Where was the picture taken?  I wonder why Isaac Langdon kept it in this Bible?

Fascinating video

How marble tombstones are made

Most interesting video showing the process of making marble tombstones.  Every time you see a marble head stone, you will remember this video.

Find A Grave

This is a good website where you can look for information about locating an ancestor's grave. There are more than 53 million graves, often with pictures and headstone incriptions. You can search by name, by location, or by cemetery. Really good information here.
