Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired educator living in the village of Poland, Ohio. I have recently done extensive work in the Poland Presbyterian Graveyard attempting to document burials. Many of the stones are partially or totally illegible at this time.Thankfully I have a report of most of the grave inscriptions done in the 1980's and I have added them to this site. I would be happy to fulfill photo requests or attempt to answer questions regarding burials.

Other cemeteries in Poland are at Poland Center (closed to burials) and the larger Poland Riverside Cemetery which opened in 1865. Be advised that many early burials listed on this site as being in the Riverside Cemetery are actually in the Presbyterian Graveyard. The person who created the memorials is no longer active so I am unable to make corrections.

An index and listing of burials with the inscriptions is available in the church office.
Please feel free to use the photographs of graves that I have posted.

Graves in wrong cemetery
Dave,

Just because Barth is inactive doesn't mean that you cannot get his memorials corrected. Just send a regular edit as if he was active; the site takes care of those now, for inactive accounts, and usually pretty quickly. I got a bunch of his at Riverside recently merged correctly with yours at the other cemetery.

BTW, whereabouts do you live in Poland? My aunt lives over on Duncan Drive, and Riverside was where I first got my love of cemeteries when I used to walk there as a child with my grandpa. :)

Isaac Walker family graves
Could you add the links for Isaac's siblings if available? Three of his four other siblings who survived to adulthood, Joseph, Alexander, and Jemima, never married, and all of them lived to old age. I couldn't find any cemetery records but perhaps they were buried on the farm? Mariah, his sister, did marry and had two children. I will send the info if I find it.

FYI, his wife, R. Edna's first name was Rebecca. Her maiden name was alternately spelled Steuart and Stewart. Their only child was Della Mary Walker. Edna's family is also buried at the obelisk.

There is an error in the article you posted for Isaac. His daughter, Della, studied at and graduated from Women's Medical College in Philadelphia in 1894, not Western Reserve. She first practiced in New York and Philadelphia before coming to Salem in 1896.

Entry for Josiah Walker(died 1853) needs name corrected from Dr. Grace Walker to Dr. Della Mary Walker. It is her bio in the Butler book.

Thanks. Ginger

Thanks for the suggestion to link Lillian with her parents. I am not directly related to her -- only to her husband, Frank Wesley Stier so if you would like for me to transfer her to you, I'd be willing to do that.

Hello I just looked and your public post page still has my personal email address posted there. Perhaps you could delete that?
Also I have been working on my Wrights and have some more info on Mary Kidd Wright (1785-1836) # 47345338. Might you consider transferring this memorial to me. I will send you a message over the edit function here. Thank you.
