RE: Simeon Harkins

I have two sources of information for Clover Hill cemetery, one from the 1960s and one from the 1980s. The cemetery is very old, among the oldest in the area and in very poor condition. I have added every entry I can find for it to Find A Grave and have photographed every stone in the cemetery that I could find and decipher. There are piles of broken stones that are not decipherable and some perhaps underground.

When you see an entry that indicates "YOD uncertain" it means either that my two sources were in conflict on the data or the person reading the stone in the 1980s could not make out the date for sure.

Sorry, but I've done the best I can for this cemetery. Good luck.

Added documents to the memorial. Had to put marriage document last so gravestone would show.

Isaac Groff
I've added:
Contributed by Lyn Dodge:
Isaac was the son of Michael and Rebecca Carpman Groff according to a Lancaster, Pennsylvania Mennonite Vital Record.

The marriage information for Isaac and Margaret was in the biography.

I also added in the notes that there was a question as to Isaac's mother. Is there a date or some other identification for Isaac in the Mennonite Vital Record? None of the genealogists researching Michael and Rebecca seem to be able to come up with any of their children. Was one Elizabeth?

RE: Isaac Groff 73933883
I can't help at all. The only reference to Michael and Rebecca I could find only had two children listed for them: Benjamin and John. Could Rebecca have been a second wife? The bio for Isaac would have been given by Isaac himself.

RE: Alvord in Rose City, MI
You are welcome. I did not see Basil's parents, William or Permilla Alvord. However, I could have missed them. I did a very quick search. Did you see large monument marker is engraved on all 4 sides? If you click on the group image, it will tell you what every side reads. One side reads Mother 1875-1912. Which would make her the correct age to be Permilla. I will be adding my image to the memorial "Mother Alvord". Also there is a memorial for a C.H. Alvord and one for a Charles H Alvord. They both have a date of death as March 28 but the years are different. You have a photo request on Charles H. I found C.H. Alvord and will be adding that image. That might be who you are looking for.

RE: Anna M. Lundy

Took a quick trip back by there today. Even though it was very overcast, I was able to get a decent shot of Christian's side of the stone, and a less good one of Louis' side. Christian died in 1863 - looks like it says Mar. 22. I have posted the pics on their memorials.

RE: Anna M. Lundy
I stopped at Glendale cemetery on the way home from work today and examined the Neher monument. Christian is there, on the south side of the monument. Looked like he died in 1864. He is not listed in the Glendale burial book, but I knew he had to be there as the entry for one of his grandchildren buried in the same lot reads "Christian Nahur's lot". I did not get a photo - will have to go back when there is some sunshine and the light is better. I am about to go ahead and add him in.

Anna M. Lundy

Thanks for the info. It lead me on a bit of a chase, but I solved the discrepancy.

Her death certificate (daughter was informant) gives her father as Christian Nehr; mother unknown. Her daughter's marriage app. gives mother as Anna Neher. Anna's marriage to Lundy says Miss Anna Rockert in the app, but Mrs. Anna Rockert in the return.

Christian Neher married Catherine Braun in Akron in 1856. She remarried to Louis Neher in 1865. Anna was born in 1863, and is found on the 1870 census in Akron with stepfather Louis Neher, mother Catherine and two older sisters.

Anna married George Jacob Rockert in Cleveland in 1881. He was a saloon keeper and died of alcoholism in 1883. She married Lundy in 1884; he was killed in 1889. She didn't have much luck with husbands.

I have linked Anna to her mother and both husbands. I have submitted an SAC to update Rockert's memorial. Have not located her father's death yet, but am still searching.

RE: Samuel A. Wells

My primary source material for the memorials I posted for Clover Hill was a stone-by-stone census done by volunteers in the early 1980s. Eleanor isn't listed in that census.

Also, early this summer, I looked at every stone in the cemetery and photographed all of them and uploaded them to Find A Grave.

The cemetery is in very poor condition and I suspect it wasn't in very good condition in the early 1980s either. It's possible that Eleanor is buried there and her stone is either illegible (there are many) or not there anymore.

Sorry I couldn't help more. If you have suggestions, let me know. This cemetery isn't far from my house.

Benjamin & Eliza Herr
I have uploaded a photo of the two stones that are side by side. Benjamin's is on the left, and we are assuming that is Eliza's stone on the right, although it is unreadable.

John Miller
RE: John Glasgow
Happy to help. BTW I am confident that this is the right stone although the name is missing. The fragment at the top does look like "JOH". Also, his grave was entered twice for unknown reasons in the Historical Society survey of the cemetery. Once with death date of 26 Aug 1769, the other with 23 May 1769. The stone clearly reads 23 May and this is validated by a transcription of grave records in the Maryland Historical Magazine, 1923.

I have asked Frank Patnaude to change the date in the posting.

If you email me I can send you links to his location and relevant sources.

I'm not sure if you saw them but there is a John and Russell Appeman in Brownhelm Cemetery which isn't too far from Florence Cemetery where you have your request for August Appeman. Just thought I'd mention it in case you may be looking for them as well.

RE: Byron E. Dodge
I will transfer it to you and let you decide what you want to do with it. :)

Byron E. Dodge
I took a picture in Richfield Union Cemetery today by chance of "Ellen J."
Her marker reads: Ellen J wife of Byron E. Dodge died July 18, 1876 aged 29 years. I found that you have Byron E. Dodge listed but not Ellen as his wife. I suspect she is his 1st wife as it seems to fit correctly. I have added her memorial and I will happily transfer it to you if you are family.
