Located a tombstone in the Stream after all

To my delight I finally located a tombstone in the stream along Dresden Avenue.  I only found one so far, but there is a bit more to explore down there.
It belongs to a woman named Elizabeth Bernhart.  Born November 25, 188? And she died November 21, 1924.
Who was she?

There are a lot of Elizabeth Bernharts.  While I have a lead, it might take some time. For now it is a mystery I am happy to work on.

Continued Exploration of the Stream Along Dresden

As of December 1, 2017 I still have not found any dumped tombstones, but I have had a lot of fun looking.  This next section was below the Fawcette Apartments.  Here are some pics of what I found down there:

Old Dumped Tombstones?

Following a lead on a story can be a lot of fun.  I saw on Facebook that someone saw a pile of tombstones laying in stream that flows along Dresden Avenue.  I am so excited to look for them.  I started today.  While I didn't find them I had a great time exploring a large chunk of the stream.  Here are some pics of my adventure:






Traveling along the stream I wondered if some of the debris was from what was once referred to as California Hollow.  Where ever it was from, I enjoyed my adventure down the stream and look forward to continuing it very soon.

New stories on their way



I have been so busy this year.  A full time j




ob, rebooting some tours, and writing a book about Youngstown has kept me very busy.  But I found several new tales to tell and hope for more soon.  Keeping it local for a while.  Here is some of what I have been working on.
