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.

I want to thank you for the memorial #12220198 Gertrude M. Arighi Richardson. She was my aunt, married to my mothers brother. I have searched for any information I could find on her. I have information on her husband, my uncle John, who was buried in WV, but all the information on her was lost to me. I knew after he died she went to Kent, Ohio to live with a niece and that she died while there. I was not sure of her surname and now I feel like I have a new door way to information. Thanks again.

Thanks for fulfilling my photo requests. I was there years ago and had taken photos before the digital age. I hope my directions were precise. There are more of my family members buried there and in Glendale. I will submit them as I find them. Nice quality photos and can I use them in my family history publications?

Dr, George & Lillian Schweitzer
Dr, George & Lillian Schweitzer were among the victims of the Noronic disaster on the Great Lakes. They were lifelong friends of my parents. I just bought a bundle of postcards and in the bundle was one of the SS Noronic so I decided to do a little research and found my way to their memorials. Thank you so much for posting them.
