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.

Thank you for posting the photos. It is nice to see a photo also that has a few close headstones of relatives around and marked on the photo who every headstone belongs to. That is not done much and very appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to do that. Very peaceful setting.

RE: Anson Owen Son of Sally Seeley
Hello Ed,
the Anson in this cemetery was not a child of Sally but her husband, He was the son of Jonathan Owen and his wife Abigail of New Lebanon, Columbia County, New York. He is mentioned in his father's will, He died quite young and Sally remarried, another Doctor, Philon Wright. I have Anson and Sally having a son Anson Owen Jr. but he was a not born until 1823 and I believe he is buried in North Ridgeville, Lorain, Ohio.

Thank you for linking William with his parents and wife. Many thanks for the awesome job you have done on findagrave; adding memorials and photos of gravestones and all the extra info. It's takes a special person to do something so great to help people find their roots and branches.

Glendale Cemetery
You have entered some really wonderful memorials for the Findleys, in Glendale Cemetery. The extent of your research causes me to wonder--are you related? I would like to discuss them further with you. Thank you for all of your great work!
