Bio and Links
Bio Photo A group of us had formed a nonprofit foundation to assist the City of Cleveland in restoration of Woodland Cemetery. I will look up names and take photographs of the headstones/graves for those buried in Woodland Cemetery. If you plan on visiting the cemetery, I will also be glad to meet you there to show you the graves of who you are looking for. In some cases the graves may be unmarked. Check out our website to search our database of burials and ongoing events and projects at If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

RE: Ranko Stoake
Hi, first let me thank you for your help and interest. The name of Stoake is a woman's name, sometimes spelled Stoyker, Stoilka, phonetically. It's old and no longer used. These people were foreign and many were illiterate so the translations we done by someone not familiar with the mother tongue they were using.

If you look at some of my photos and uploads, you'll see the common names (many Americanized to fit in). Usually, their headstones are marked with orthodox crosses and photos that have woman wearing headscarves with gold earrings and the men well, they have sometimes piercing eyes, ruddy complexion etc.
yes, please let me know what graves you have their. We're missing a few Mitchell's like Jaunch, and also Demitro, Dimitro, and similar -L.A.

RE: Ranko Stoake
Hi, thanks so much for the photos. Yes, could be a relative. I was hoping it had a photo. Ranko is a very old Roma name. Warm regards, L.A.

Mary Barrett
Thank you for your message (February 2016) to me regarding your efforts in finding my great grandmother, Mary Catherine Kenney-Murray-Barrett's, grave in the Woodland Cemetery. I just had a second researcher there who also could not find her.

My request came from the site showing the following:

Mary Catherine Barrett
Find A Grave Index
Name Mary Catherine Barrett
Maiden Name Kenney
Event Type Burial

Event Place Cleveland, Cuyahoga, Ohio, United States of America
Photograph Included N
Birth Date 26 Jun 1843
Death Date 09 Sep 1883

Cemetery Woodland Cemetery

It's frustrating to think that she is lost somewhere there in Cleveland as are the graves of her five children. Her first four children all died between November 7 - 22, 1876 in the Diphtheria Epidemic of 1876-1877. Her youngest infant died in June of 1883, just prior to her death due to apoplexy.

I sincerely thank you again for your efforts.

Trommlitz/Tromlitz headstone
Thank you for going to all the extra trouble to uncover the headstone of William Trommlitz, my second great grandfather and his second wife, Wilhelmina, and photograph it for me. Needless to say, I am thrilled. Jan Fultz
