*NOTES*
Hello Cindy : I want to say thank you on behalf of PLACE Family - for transcribing the above cemetery. We had wondered for a long time about the Matriach - Lydia Garland PLACE - widow of John PLACE. Lydia and John, both natives of New Hampshire, married in Rochester, N. H. on November 22, 1787 by Joseph Haven of the First Congregational Church of Rochester [Source: New Hampshire Genealogical Record - Author: Charles Tibbetts - Page 3). John PLACE died April 22, 1828, buried in Washington County, OHIO. There is a story that a stone marker for him was found alone on a hill marked by a tall holly tree in a thicket of pines. The DAR placed a marker for John PLACE in the family plot in Old Chapel Cemetery, Decatur Township in 1971. [Source: Tallow Light, Newsletter of the Washington Cty Historical Society. Vol 13, No.2 Pages 81/82]. Lydia, her sons, Isaac and Sidney PLACE and daughter Hannah Place KETCHAM migrated to Jefferson County, IIlinois in 1838/39. They left with the GILBERT, NEWELL, FAIRCHILD and other families. I have extensive genealogy on the PLACE Family and am in contact with other descendants (mostly from Lydia & John's family that remained in Ohio). God bless you ~ Josie 7-7-2001
