A determined effort was made to ensure accuracy. All the stones were read and those readings completely rechecked at least once. Special care was taken with the old stones - some of them now worn, broken and difficult to decipher and some of them have been puzzled over many times. No stone was omitted. Broken pieces were copied if there was any discernible engraving and foundations/bases with no stones were noted.

Winner of The Ohio Genealogical Society's prestigious SIMON KENTON AWARD

In 1979 our chapter of The Ohio Genealogical Society published a first volume of Probate Records of Mahoning County. That volume covered the years 1846 through 1856. This second volume starts with case number 674 which was probated 13 January 1857 and ends with those cases completed by 31 December 1867.

This edition covers the Civil War years and contains some wills or estates of Civil War soldiers.

The abstracts were done from the original documents, with wills added from the Will Books if they were missing from the folder. These added cases give the Will Book number and page. The actual files are on permanent loan to the Mahoning Valley Historical Society in Youngstown and may be seen there. They are also on microfilm at the Mahoning County Courthouse, in the probate department.

Some of the abstracts list "also mentioned" people. These are persons who are not named as heirs, but have the same or related names to the deceased's family. When someone died there was usually an estate auction where personal, and sometimes real, property was sold .The names of these "also mentioned" people are found on the lists of buyers at the sale or perhaps on a receipt for labor or goods supplied to the deceased. It gives the researcher other persons with the same surnames in an area, even if they were distantly related.

Oak Hill Cemetery is the final resting place of many of Youngstown's earliest settlers and their descendants. Rich, poor, young, old, famous, infamous, over twenty-five thousand people lie in this quiet and beautifully kept cemetery. On Memorial Day hundreds of small flags mark the graves of the Mahoning Valley's veterans who are buried here. Veterans from the Revolutionary War to the Vietnam War lie here. The Civil War is represented by veterans from both the North and the South.

Superintendent William Host loaned these hand copied burial records to the Chapter for publication. They were produced by the various superintendents over the years and these volumes were reproduced from these copies, to eliminate possible errors in transcription. Burials in Oak Hill started shortly after the Cemetery Association was formed in 1852, but there are no records for those internments. Bodies were moved there from the old Youngstown Township Cemetery, located at the Southeast and Southwest corners of Wood Street and Wick Avenue, starting in 1869.

If there was no tombstone in the early years then, there is no record now.

This volume contains the histories, records and tombstone inscriptions of the seven Jewish cemeteries that are in Mahoning County, Ohio. It also contains the history of the seven synagogues and the fraternal organization which used the cemeteries. It also includes the Veteran's Grave Registrations attributed to these cemeteries, located in the Recorders Office in the Mahoning County Courthouse.

Much of the history of the various congregations came from booklets given to Mr. Joseph from the various temple offices. This volume also contains a section on the various traditions concerning death in Judaism, and a part on how to interpret a grave marker in scribed in Hebrew. Much of the art work was done by the author. A determined effort was made to ensure accuracy. All the stones were read and those readings completely rechecked at least once. Special care was taken with the old stones - some of them now worn, broken and difficult to decipher and some of them have been puzzled over many times. No stone was omitted. Broken pieces were copied if there was any discernible engraving and foundations/bases with no stones were noted. Stones with Hebrew inscriptions were read and translated by Emil S. Dickstein, M.D.

This work was edited by Jocelyn Fox Wilms and Emil S. Dickstein, M.D.
