Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born and live in NE Ohio. Have worked on genealogy since 1989. I started giving back in genealogy due to all the help I received from strangers.My family came from Bohemia (on my father's side) from 1867 to 1905 and settled in Cleveland. Most of this family is buried in Calvary cemetery in Cleveland. My mother's family arrived 1896-1902 coming from Galicia. They immigrated to Western Pennsylvania and were coal miners. My grandparents came to Cleveland about 1930 to make a better living than working in coal mines.I make trips to Calvary Cemetery on Miles Road (Cleveland) about 2-3 times per year. All Saints Cemetery (Northfield) maybe 5-6 times per year. I prefer to be given a section/plot location since some cemeteries limit the number of requests. This can be obtained by calling (found online) the cemetery/church or city of the cemetery. If they don't have the records, they can direct you to the place that holds the record.If you would like someone transferred to your management please go to their page and click "edit" then "Suggest any other correction or addition" and request transfer with your contributor number. If a person isn't related to me, I would be happy to transfer management.Thanks

RE: John Blair of Portage County
Hi Jean,

Thanks for the quick reply!

Those numbers are memorial identification numbers. If you copy and paste them into the "memorial number" search field in the main search page, they will take you to the memorials.

I can't use the edit function, because I don't know the correct info! There are three different memorials in three different cemeteries, all for the same person, each with a single photo of the same headstone. To correct it, two of the memorials need to be deleted, but I don't know which two. Since you took two of the photographs, I figured you'd been to the cemeteries, and you'd know which one was the actual location of the grave.

(I suppose it is possible that James Blair has identical headstones in three different cemeteries, but that seems pretty unlikely!)

John Blair of Portage County
Hi Jean. Noticed an odd thing... John Blair (1765-1851) appears to have three different memorials, each in a different old cemetery in Portage County. The photo of the same family stone is on each of the three. You took two of the photos and added one of the memorials... do you know which cemetery the photo was actually taken in?

Here are the three memorials:
John Blair 12891918, Stow Street Cemetery in Kent, not your photo
John Blair 53805683, Pioneer Cemetery near Mantua, your photo
John Blair 130423352, East Lawn Cem, your memorial and photo

Thanks, just trying to clear things up...

RE: Memorial Cemetery, Dunn, NC
Not positive. I do know there are two cemeteries on one road that are similar in name. Unfortunately I am not in NC any longer. You would need to message Find A Grave to ask. Wish I could be more assistant to this matter, but I do not know.
