1 Pathways Butler County Chapter of The Ohio Genealogical Society P. O. Box 224, Middletown, OH President s Message V OLUME 30, NUMBER 4 ISSN NOVEMBER, 2011 The holidays are fast approaching and before long it will be winter. Cold weather tends to drive us inside and this might be a good time to work on our genealogical pursuits. The internet has brought access to wonderful databases full of information. is digitizing records from their microfilms. New titles are being uploaded every month although not all are indexed yet. Both Google Books ( and have older genealogy books which are now in the public domain digitized and online. also has digitized census records, passenger lists, and other goodies free of charge (although they are not indexed). These databases are all free. Have you heard about Mocavo? It s a relative newcomer to genealogy. It is a search engine specifically designed to search free, online-genealogy resources. You can search your family names and get results that pertain only to genealogy. No more wading through dozens of hits which are unrelated to genealogy. You can also upload a family tree in GEDCOM format at and they will send you the search results for your ancestors. You may also opt to have your family tree included in the Mocavo search engine so that others searching for your names will be able to find your content in their search results. You would be displayed as the creator and owner of the tree. They automatically remove living people and you have full control over your tree, even the ability to delete it whenever you want. Give it a try and see if it helps you. Go to and enter your search parameters. With this quarter s newsletter you should have received a user name and password for our Member s Only section.

2 Middletown Cemetery Vault Submitted by Vivian Moon Several years after the vault was built in 1878 they lined the inside of the vault with brick that was manufactured in West Middletown by the Frisch family who are buried on the east side of the vault. When the brick liner was completed they installed wooden racks to hold bodies during the winter months when it was too difficult to dig the graves. The families were charged rent for each day their loved one was stored until they could be buried in the spring. After seven years of waiting, Houston Bros. started the restoration of the stonework of the Gothic vault on October 11, The first step was removing the front sandstone edging of the roof and then the sandstone gutters. Next the fieldstone located over the door that was bulging was removed. The sandstone key stone located at the peak of the Gothic arch doorway was then put back in its proper place. They also removed some of the brick liner in the front area inside the vault. Other workmen have started grinding out the old mortar and tuck pointing all the loose fieldstone. Houston Bros. commented on how well the mason had cut and laid the fieldstone so many years ago.

One white stone marking four burials is surrounded by a fence, and is on the left side of the road. Section 14.

7 Marriage Record book 4: Marriages Recorded Late or Not At All By Pam White Have you ever had a good idea when and where your ancestor married but can t find him in the appropriate marriage book? While working on Butler County Marriage Record book 4, I found several marriages recorded which should have been recorded in older books. Apparently some clergymen or JPs misplaced the marriage return and didn t report the marriage until later. This is a list of marriages in book 4 which should have appeared in earlier volumes. Groom s Surname Bride s Surname Marriage Year Year Recorded Allen Fulk Clarke Lattroop Davis McDonald Francis Olinger 1851 * Hall Robinson 1853 * Hazeltine Ringwood Kimbal Jolley Lockwood Rollins Louthan Pierce McKee Brainard Meeker Evans Nudd Williams Ringwood Martindell Shaffer Jones Stephenson Davis Vierather Exler 1846 * *The recorded dates on these marriages were the same as the marriage date but they were entered in book 4 much later than the actual marriage. There are also a few marriages for which the officiate brought in a return but the marriage was never recorded in book 4. These are: Groom s Surname Bride s Surname Marriage Year Year Filed Craft Schul Heny Fillery Malloy Lynch Zelle Hommer We are still in the process of comparing the returns with the marriage book and may find more. Burial Grounds of Oxford, Ohio by Sylvia F. Ferguson, 1989 Submitted by Valerie Elliott, Smith Library, Oxford, Ohio The Smith Library in Oxford has a non-circulating copy of this book. They also still have copies of it for sale at $ If you have ancestors in Oxford, this might be a good book to add to your genealogy library. Page 43
