The stone in my photo says it all

"This is Me"

This stone can be found in the Mentor City Cemetery, Mentor Ohio. It is part of a family plot towards the back of the cemetery. There is a main family stone and than this one. It's not the prettiest stone by far but the guy had a sense of humor. I smile everytime I see it.

I am retired. Enjoy baseball (Atlanta Braves) and many other hobbies. I believe Find A is a wonderful idea and hopefully more people will help identify a lot of the ones that have passed before us. I especially enjoy following some of the older graves especially those who fought in the civil war and have photos. This is so interesting to think... (read more)

Transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This does not include Cousins, Aunts or Uncles. Nor does it include your neighbor or BFF.

SG (172,619 Memorials)
This is such a wonderful FREE sight! I have been researching my family lines for years and find it extremely frustrating when memorial owners will neither transfer my family member to me for editing or add any of the documented edits I send to them. I figure its one more way to share my research with others!

I am in Michigan. I am not related to 99.999% of my entries, but have added them with the hope that other researchers who have come to a dead end may be helped. With respect to those entries, I have no other information available as I have tried to include as much info as I have.

Thank you so much to the volunteers who not only list the information but also provide a photograph of the stones.
