I was going through my letter from Rootsweb this morning and found that
there are some Ohio cemetery transcriptions available. I have ancestors
that were in Meigs County, Ohio so I was going through the cemetery
listings and found the following:
This is found in Meigs County, Lebanon township, Middleswart Cemetery.

Sellers,Wanda F.:  1941-1996
        Darrell L.:  1939
        Harold O.: 1919-1995
        Ruth A.:  1921-
        James E.:  1886-1977
        Mabel A.:  1890-1973
        James E.:  1910-1982
I hope this is helpful to someone on the list.
