As soon as I sent that message I realized that I had already corresponded with you before! I am very bad about remembering who I have talked to before, so I'm sorry for the duplicate messages. I scanned a picture I have of Magdalena's stone. It is in Salem Cemetery, near Elida in Allen County, Ohio. Many of her children and their families are buried here also. If you are able to open the files I send you, I will try to scan some more pics of David's siblings' stones. I also scanned a picture of Samuel, David's brother, and his wife Elizabeth Miller. I am not sure if they scanned well or not because I only have a xeroxed copy of the originals. Let me know if you have any problems opening the attachments. I will be in touch with some more info on the Good family later. Merry Christmas!

Hi Ginny,

I'm afraid I can't help you much on the exact location of the tombstone because the picture was sent to me by another relative. I visited the cemetery once when I was coming home from a scholarship competition, but I was only able to spend ten minutes there because I needed to get home. I never found Magdalena's stone in the short time, but in the pictures, it looks like it is on the outside edge next to a field, so I'm guessing that it is on the long side of the cemetery parallel to the side against the street. The cemetery itself is located near Elida across from Salem Church, and it's just referred to as Salem Cemetery. I'm pretty sure the church is still of the Mennonite faith; the building looks fairly new and is of brick. I'm sorry that I couldn't be of any further help. Thanks~
