Bio and Links
Bio Photo Ever since I was very young, I've picked and pawed through old cemeteries. I love history and
cemeteries are great history lessons. Here in the Akron, Ohio area there are many old cemeteries, Glendale being one of the oldest. Many notable figures of history now rest at Glendale and I have listed hundreds of them here on Find A Grave. The famous include: early industrialists, politicians, musicians, entertainers, etc. I have also listed thousands of the "common" people from this area. Also, I have covered some other areas around Akron such as: Cuyahoga Falls, Tallmadge, Mogadore, Hudson, Ellet, Barberton and Northampton Township. I will be listing other cemeteries and areas soon.

TRANSFERS > In most cases, I do not do transfers for these reasons: People ask for a transfer to add more infomation. But when I check back in a year or so, nothing has been added. Also, I find that many people get onto Find A Grave and "play around" with it for a few months and then lose interest and go on to something else. Then when I find additional information to add to a memorial that I had transfered to them, I e-mail it and never get a response and it's never added. So basically, I'm done playing games with these people.

If you have a relative that you'd like tranfered, e-mail me. I may do it. But in the future if I find more info for the memorial, I expect you to work with me and add it. If you don't want to do that, then leave the memorial in my care so it will be updated as more info comes my way. If this sounds harsh, I'm sorry, but I've had a lot of these people since I've started.

Recently I have aquired Akron City Directories from 1859 to 1969. I have begun to add these to my listings. They are helpfull as they show us the history of Akron as well as each person's occupation and home address. They help to fill in the puzzles.

Mr Ed, Thanks very much for the pictures of my mother's first cousin. They wrote one another often. My mother died age 93 in 2001. Always like to find as many of the people as I can esp. those I remember. Carolyn

Thank you for taking the time and making the effort to get the tombstone photo of Joseph and Clarissa Stewart Keefer's tombstone. That confirmed her burial location for me which I did not know for a fact.

I appreciate your help.

RE: Henry Baker Family Photos
One additional note ~ I did know about Lillian Beck and Nell Becker Dowling after all...(was accidentally looking them up under married instead of maiden names!) I have as Nell's given middle initial either T. or F., not B. The "B" on the headstone pictured is her maiden name's initial (for Becker). Thanks again!
