Bio Photo "I love dead people, In fact, I come from a long line of dead people." --from the comic 'Empowered' by Adam Warren

If I manage the memorial of a family member or friend of yours, I'll be pleased to transfer. It's so exciting to find things you are looking for! :)

It annoys me when people here treat memorials like their personal property - like memorials are trading cards to collect and hoard. ಠ_ಠ You know the ones! These memorials are the property of Find A Grave. We are just caretakers.

I am *always* happy to transfer, except when the person is my own relative (and no one is closer) or ones I have a special interest in. Even those I will pass on to a relative of any distance.

I have even transferred to non-relatives with a special interest in the deceased.

Some helpful resources:

Re: Erie St. Cemetery...I was told the following: "Unfortunately, a majority of the markers in Erie Street Cemetery are either not there, or are so weathered they are unreadable. Any grave that had a marker that was readable has already been uploaded to their respective memorial pages on Findagrave."

Cleveland Necrology File (many typos) and Cleveland News Index:

Cleveland Catholic Cemeteries Association:
They are currently putting all records online. As of 9/15, the following cemeteries are done - All Saints (Northfield); All Souls (Chardon); Resurrection (Valley City); Holy Cross (Akron); Holy Cross (Brook Park); and St. Joseph (Avon). Work is ongoing on the following cemeteries: Calvary (Cleveland); and Calvary (Lorain).

City of Cleveland Cemeteries Index:

Those with a Cuyahoga County Public Library card can view many things online, including the Plain Dealer from April 7, 1845 - the present and much non-Cleveland information:

Any Ohio resident may request a CC Library card online:

PHOTO NOTE: I did not take the photos of Brooklyn Hts Cemetery in Cleveland. They were ALL originally transcribed and photographed by a very nice lady, Susanna Pretzer. She was completing a project to earn the Gold Award in Girl Scouts.
I checked with her, and have permission to post her photos and add the names. She said, "I definitely didn't know how physically and organizationally demanding it would be when I started, but that made it all the more satisfying...The idea was to get the information to the people who want it, so go for it. If it'll reach interested people who might not find it where it is currently online or in hard copy at the Western Reserve Historical Society, then it's good." --Thanks, Susanna!

Another note on PHOTOS: I give my permission to copy any photos I have taken for your own use or for another site. There are only a few -of thousands- that I have posted which I did not take personally. Just ask, please, so I make sure you are taking something I shot.

Woodland Cemetery Foundation
RE: Cochrane
Yes it was very sad to see the mausoleum torn down but it also looks so much nicer there now. It seems to be more peaceful and inviting.

From the request of the Cochrane family, we will be making a garden on the lot in the spring time. We did save the mausoleum stones, the Cochrane name stone and the iron gate. The stones and iron gate are being stored off-site so they are not stolen.

If anyone wants to volunteer and assist with the garden contact the Woodland Cemetery Foundation. We want to make this a nice peaceful and inviting space where visitors can have a conversation with the residents.

Hi Cypress,
Thank you for your edit, linking John's parents.
I'm unable to accept changing his spouse from Patricia to Unknown.

Here's is John's obit info in Cleveland News Index:
Title: Goins, John C: Husband Of Patricia-obit
Date: 2003-03-15
Source: Plain Dealer
Notes: pg. 8 sec. B

Also Patricia is age 76 and the current owner of 4008 Trent and 4014 Trent in Cleveland, 44109.

I will decline your edit based on those reasons but I did process the parent links.

Thanks for your help.
