I love genealogy. My sister Valerie and I work on our different families' genealogies, pulling our resources together. I love roaming through the peaceful cemeteries looking for our ancestors. I am happy to be able to share this information with our relatives. I have printed out many different family genealogy reports and sent them to our relatives so that the information is shared. I am delighted to share some of this info online through the Find-a-grave website.|

I was just reading the story of your grandparents. What a tragic story! Do you have any genealogy on back of the Emery family? My father's mother was an Emery.
I just finished re-editing (correcting type-o's) of Uncle Glen's first book. There's quite a lot of mentions of your grandfather, Raymond & Louise.
In getting back into genealogy, I finally realized from FINDAGRAVE that you are Lorin's daughter, right? I don't know if I just forgot that or am too old and senile to have figured it out. My sister, Nancy went to all the cousin Christmas parties in Portland before she moved here and so knew your dad (our cousin) better than I did. I had moved away in 1958 when I got married. Anyway, I wondered if you have copies of Uncle Glen's books which Dean & Elaine wound up with probably because they were into genealogy back then. Elaine gave me the books (I think the ones Ruby had redone for him) and photo copies of the pages which I returned to her or Beverly. I put them all on my computer and printed copied for my kids of the first book. Naomi later copied the book for her family. I never finished editing the other two books, but they are still on my computer. The first one is the most historical, as it talks about the first telephones, airplanes and automobiles as well as their first years in the sand hills of Nebraska. It has a lot of genealogy links in it also which I am going to start going over again and researching. The other two are mostly concerned with Glen's family (he and Lottie). If you would like them, I could e-mail them to you or put them on a CD and send them to you. They are in Word Perfect, so you may not be able to open them if you use Word. Anyway, let me know and I will get them to you if you don't already have them.
I guess we are distant cousins. Alberts brother Thomas and Mabels sister Etta are my great grandparents. I live in Southern Oregon. Next time I'm in Portland I will visit you great grand parents grave.

Just a friendly mid June reminder that we need plot info to fill your Cleveland Calvary request(s). We have less than 500 requests left but plot info for only 6% of those, having already filled the rest with plot info. We can't ask for plot info for more than 3 requests per week. Please call (216) 641-7575 and obtain plot info. We'd really appreciate it and will fill your request(s) soon after getting plot info. Thank you!

this is the plot, but there is only a surname stone, no individual stones or engraving on either side.

You've put in request(s) at Calvary in Cleveland. Several of us are actively working to clear the more than 715 requests. We've actually cleared close to 100 in the past week. With 400,000 burials if you could please obtain plot information AND a plot map one of us will be more likely to be able to fill the request, as the office will only give out a little information to each person. The office phone number is (216) 641-7575. On my page I have the plot maps listed that we already have which is quite a few. If the burial is in one of those sections we don't need another map, just the plot info on the request.
You can try to tell them you'll be visiting when they're closed, etc. So far everyone who's called has been successful in having a map mailed, a few e-mailed. If you get one let me know and I'll give you my e-mail address. With thousands of graves per section a plot map would be VERY helpful. Without plot information it's basically impossible.

|D. Young||RE: Our Myers Connection|
I'm assuming you are descended from Ruth Ann (Myers)and Harvey Rumrill.

|D. Young||RE: Our Myers Connection|
'Sorry, Stephanie. I should have said that my great-great grandfather, Lorenzo W. Myers, was Ruth Ann's brother. He had a son, Charles Myers. The children I have listed for Surzardus and Maria were: Ruth Ann, Lucinda, Emiline (Emily), Lorenzo, Philander "Horton", Eleanor, and Emma E. I have a few dates and spouses' names. I think there may have been another son and daughter, based on census records. The only photos I have were of Lorenzo and Ruth (Trowbridge) Myers, and Merritt and Lucinda (Myers) Comstock. I was sent the first two photos by a distant cousin's wife. The latter two I found on a website on Ancestry.com. The person, I believe, had Rumrill family photos as well. You might check Rumrill family trees.

Stephanie, I don't know where this cemetery is, but I can find out. Ironically, our daughter and her husband live outside Cleveland. We go to Ohio and stay through the summer. If you wish, I can try and find those two graves.
