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.

Isaac Harget
Thank you for taking and recording that nice photo of the gravestone of Isaac Harget. He was my GGGG Grandfather.. We were there long ago and took a photo as well, but I am glad that it has now been recorded.

I have not been able to find any more about Isaac and Jerusha's families. I don't even know her maiden name, so perhaps someone some day will know and record it.

Jerusha Hargett
My ancestor is Jerusha Hargett. . I have her birthdate as about 1768 and her death date as 1837. We paid a visit to the Kent Corners Cemetery a number of years ago and found only two flat stones for Jerusha where her stone had originally been. The writing on the stones was illegible. The source of my information is
Portage County Cemeteries Vol II, Brimfield Twp and Suffield Twp, 1808-1991, page 195
Portage County Historical Society
Kent Corners-Cemetery Suffield Twp Row 10

How does this fit with the information you have as a source?
Perhaps there was another source of the information on the stones or other reliable information?

The inscription I had from this source was
Gravestone inscription: Jerusha, consort of Isaac Harget died Sept 14, 1837 age 69 yrs.
2 flat stones illegible

RE: Catherine Lucinda Miller Seiberling
Thanks, Ed. I added the picture of the 9 Seiberling siblings. I also realized we have a picture of CLMS as an older woman if you'd like to make room so it can be added.

Thanks!

Catherine Lucinda Miller Seiberling
Hello Mr. Ed -

I have a very nice picture of all of the Seiberling children that you might like to make room for on their mother's page (Catherine Lucinda Miller Seiberling). My husband's grandfather - Theodore Seiberling Pflueger - was one of four sons of Julia "Ruth" Seiberling Pflueger, the youngest of Catherine Seiberling's 9 children.

I'm going to put it on Ruth's page if you'd like to see it.

Sincerely,

Lisa Russell Pflueger

Aaron Morriss family
Mr. Ed,

I was working in the Tallmadge City Cemetery, Summit, Ohio and ran across the stone of Aaron Morriss and family. I was quite impressed with the size of the Morriss stone, it is so BIG. I was thinking that this family had money, or some reason to have such a big and tall stone of black granite or whatever it is. Do you have any insight as to why such a huge stone?

I am not related, just wondering. I am working on a cemetery restoration project for this cemetery, resetting fallen stones, etc. Also working on veterans stones in this cemetery.

I understand about the cause of death. so often these suicides that are pre-1933, before social security, you have to put into context the times, the troubles and the lack of any system to fall back on if you hit hard times. One family that i followed had a couple of children die in quick succession and father was unemployed. modern kids, especially, today do not appreciate what struggles our ancestors went thru and what hard times really are... it isnt just that your internet went down for an hour, or someone unfriended you on facebook... you put the cause in discreetly...thanks
regards,
c. walker
