Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a member of Daughters of the American Revolution, the Jamestowne Society, Descendants of the Signers of the Declaration of Independence, the National Huguenot Society, and the Colonial Dames of the 17th Century. I just love researching family histories. I taught Jr. High English in the public schools for fourteen years. I was an Elementary Counselor and a librarian for fifteen years.

I would love your contributions to the pages I've added. I especially want pictures of the people I have listed here. I am taking pictures of all the tombstones in my area in order to preserve family histories for future generations, especially those who wish to join DAR and other societies. I want to honor these people and truly wish for them to be "Gone but Not Forgotten." I want to create a page for each person with pictures and biographical information. My DAR webpage is at

Licking Cemetery
Do you have access to the Licking cemetery records? I know that cemetery records "in the olden days" weren't very well kept but is there any indication who the infant twins, Edith and Ethel Ware born 2 Aug 1897 and died 13 Aug 1897 belong to? Perhaps some indication who bought the plot?

I'm thinking they were the daughters of John Washington Ware and his second wife Armitta Elizabeth Housden Ware West Ogden. Armitta and John have a son Clyde Chase Ware also born 4 Mar 1897. Clyde died 30 May 1963.

It's almost too much to be coincidence.

All the above players are buried in Licking Cemetery.

If this is outside your realm of interest etc. can you guide me to who does have the cemetery records?

I live in Arizona and can't just drop everything and come look myself (although I would love to!)

Lucy A. Reed # 99772546
I should be able to send you the full obituary for Lucy Reed by the end of this coming week. Sorry I can't get to it today. Thanks for adding the information I have found so far. She sure was a nice, sweet lady.
Thank you,

Thank you for the information. It's sad when we lose things of this value. Thank you again.

RE: Grace Page Clark - East Akron
I wonder it that was really Mabel's birth date. I will change the year, but leave the month and day the same for now.

Grace Page Clark - East Akron
Hi Linda,

I made the changes for Grace, linked her to her mother, and located and added (to the bio) the name of her husband. However, I was wondering what your source for the birth date was? The year you gave me was 1868, but she is not listed on the 1870 census - her parents have a daughter Mabel K., age 2. In 1880, Mabel is 12, and Grace shows up - age 8; hence born ca. 1872.

RE: Ann Cole Cole
Thank you!
Is the Bible still in the Family? Or is it archived somewhere for others to view?

# 13799105 Ann Cole Cole. You placed a picture of births and deaths of Nathaniel cole, etc. What is this a picture of? It says Memorandum. Is this from a Bible, Town records or what?

I updated the Bonstedts. Clausthal is now located within Lower Saxony, so I was able to add the entire birth info in the birth field. Glad to re-Germanize Carl's name - since only his initials are on the stone I was able to do that.

I am familiar with Lane - was actually reading the entire thing at one time. I didn't know that Bonstedt was in it, however. Lane mostly stuck to the Akron famous of English, Irish and Scots descent.

If you prefer for me to type the Lane info in the bio, and you then just add the photo that would be fine. Let me know. I don't mind typing it.
