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.

RE Memorial# 5994531
I was reading through some Find A Grave postings and I came to the Korean War Veterans Memorial. I don't remember writing the following words being more than 10 years ago.

"My father fought in the Korean War. It hurts him when he finds that people don't even know there was such a conflict. People are educated on World War II then the history book jumps to Vietnam with little or no mention of Korea. I wish he would receive more recognition but he doesn't want it. He wants the recognition and respect to go to those who never came home. That is why I wear an MIA Bracelet in honor of a lost soldier of this war. This POW-MIA flag is for them. I will close with my father's saying, "Rest easy my comrades, until we form again." May they all rest in peace. "

Thank you for using my words. My father served in the 11th Airborne Division at then Camp Campbell Ky. then in the 187th Airborne Regimental Combat Team in Korea ending in honorable discharge on 04 JAN 54. He passed away on Feb 2007 at the age of 74. He was a boisterous larger than life figure but mention Korea and he would become quiet and solemn. He never forgot those who never came home and quietly lived with survivor's guilt. He was uneasy with recognition but was graceful when it was bestowed upon him. At his funeral, between the VFW, American Legion and Hispanic American Airborne Association he was given a send off befitting a paratrooper. We miss him everyday. May he and his comrades rest in peace and thank you sir for your service.

Charles Reid Metzler #119333772
Veterans' Administration records show Charles Reed Metzler (1886 - 1935) was cremated in the Florida Keys after the 1935 Labor Day Hurricane. Is Charles Reid Metzler the same person? If so I'm guessing he has a memorial, not a grave, at Mount Peace Cemetery, Akron, Ohio. Could you verify this?

Thanks

Thank you for posting the photos. It is nice to see a photo also that has a few close headstones of relatives around and marked on the photo who every headstone belongs to. That is not done much and very appreciated. Thank you for taking the time to do that. Very peaceful setting.
