      Hi Sharon,
      This is Madge Staley I have been in touch with you before.. My great great grandfather was Phillip H. Koontz and Julia Ann Foster. I was in Ohio a couple of years ago. While there I found the graves of my Koontz family. I am hunting for the death date of Phillip H. Koontz, have been hunting forever for it.
      I love this site of yours. Got some picture's off of there that I had never seen. It is so good to see the picture's..
      I hope you keep adding to the site. I tried leaving a message on your site but it would not allow me to do that.
      Thanks again
      Madge
