As we approach MEMORIAL DAY (formerly known as Decoration day), many of us may be visiting the graves of our ancestors.  In doing so, you may discover coins placed on veterans' tombstones as a special tribute to fallen soldiers.  If you do, please DO NOT REMOVE THOSE TRIBUTES.  Here's why: 

              P = someone who stopped to pay respect

              Nickel = someone who was in bootcamp with the veteran

              Dime  = someone who served with the soldier

              Quarter = someone who was with the soldier when he or she was killed

Dear Little Diary,

I think Americans are eventually moving passed the clutches of the Covid-19 virus and starting to venture out once again.  We've had several family historians and researchers visiting our Genealogy Research Room at the Monroe County Dist. Library here in Woodsfield and calling or emailing to ask for research over the past two months. 


The May 16th event honoring Susannah Buck Cline Evans at the historic Jericho Church & Cemetery was blessed with perfectly comfortable weather and about 45-50 descendants.
