Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a former history teacher originally from Hallsville, Ohio living in Akron, Ohio and have also worked extensively with those who must deal with the challenge of mental illness most of my adult life.
I am currently a genealogy researcher and fully understand the importance of documenting cemeteries before the ravages of time and weather remove the writings of the past. This is me with my grandchildren, Olivia and Gabriel.
Any pictures I have posted can be used by others for personal or genealogy purposes. If you want higher resolution photos please contact me. Please do not add a headstone photo on my memorials if there is already one there. If you have a higher resolution photo please contact me.
To me FAG is a way to memorialize friends and relatives as well as document cemeteries. Unfortunately, there are some who only care about numbers. If I have a memorial posted of someone who was dear to you or related - even distantly - I am happy to transfer. If it was someone from my family tree or was dear to me I will be happy to discuss it with you and share information.
We are all leaves of the same tree.

Families are Great
RE: Ezra Sherman 34503520
I'm so sorry that happened to you. I'm not sure why people get so upset. Most of us are always willing to correct mistakes. I'll repost the info that I know is correct. Thanks for all you do.

Just curious to know what happened to Ezra's memorial page. I can find it in cached pages on the internet but it is not found on FindaGrave.

Yale has just released 170,000 photos taken by govt photographers during the Great Depression . You can click on the map and see photos for each county/state where the photos were taken. Website is .
I began searching on the map...chose Ross Co., OH. Many great pictures and way too many are unidentified people. There are some of Haubeil of Ross Co., which may be this Oscar Haubeil, referred to at least once as H. G. Haubeil. Search by surname here:

RE: Tillett
Thank you for the message. The photo I requested was for David James Tillett Sr. You have info for his son, David Jr. David Jr. died in Ohio and I didn't know where he was buried. I will create a monument for him, and I would greatly appreciate the pictures, thanks!

ethel may, forest and albert brown
Hi ,
I sent a message earlier about possibly tranfering my 2x great grandparents amos brown and rosa delong brown's memorial to me. I was wondering if you could also transfer 3 of their children that passed as infants. Ethel mae brown #43188822 (2x great aunt), forest brown #43188885, and albert brown #43188768 (2x great grand uncles). I would like to connect my family, and could add additional information. Thanks so much again, Stephanie
