Bio Photo The stone in my photo says it all

"This is Me"

This stone can be found in the Mentor City Cemetery, Mentor Ohio. It is part of a family plot towards the back of the cemetery. There is a main family stone and than this one. It's not the prettiest stone by far but the guy had a sense of humor. I smile everytime I see it.


Now to more Find A Grave stuff.

You know what truly amazes mamaquilts, is the number of people who send her an email stating that the memorial she has created is a duplicate. Then it turns out that the other memorial is a duplicate because it was created after the one that Mamaquilts made. Mamaquilts does report people who purposely create duplicates.

Please use the Edit buttons found on each memorial. They do make is much easier for updates to be done.

Please use the EDIT button for memorial transfers with a statement as to why you want to have the transfer made (family member, friend, military etc). If it falls outside of the Find A Grave rules, mamaquilts has the last say as to whether or not she'll transfer. She is very accommodating with transfers.

Please remember that most of the people here on Find A Grave are volunteers and do have lives out side of this site. Please wait the 30 days for corrections to be done.


UPDATE: Please wait for the 30 days that is required for Find A Grave correction to take place. Mamaquilts does not live on this website and makes corrections on her time as it is permitted.

In March of 2014, Mamaquilt's Dad was killed in an accident. If you would like to visit her Dad's memorial you can find it here

Find A Grave Memorial# 82828304
I am looking for info about Althea Brooks.
I am maintaining this memorial and you originally put it online. Can you tell me if there are any records for Althea Brooks that specifically giver her birth date and plot location? She is hard to pin down. Her father, Augustus Gilbert Sr is on the books as paying taxes in Fabius Township, Onondaga County, NY (part of greater Syracuse today) 1799, through 1803. The records began in 1799. In 1794 he has an ad in a Weybridge Vermont Newspaper calling for taxes to be paid since he is the Weybridge tax collector. I think Althea was born in NY but have no proof. Any info about the cemetery would be wonderful.

Edward Augustus Chapman
Hi I was helping my uncle Carl Chapman with his father and mother on find a grave, and ran across one you had set up.
the Edward Augustus Chapman has the same birth and death as mine, but in two different cities.
I don't know if that is possible. My uncle Carl just died last night and I have pictures of there grave sites. My Find A Grave: 162651643 for Edward A Chapman, and his wife Find A Grave: 162651875, and my uncle Carl their son, is 159849081 all in the Portsmouth Ohio area (Wheelersburg)
Could some one else have made a mistake or is there two of them on the same dates?
I talked to my Uncle Carl about a month before he died and he said I was correct, he was 94, and I have know him all of my 68 years of life.
Can you please check into yours?

George Henry Chalkraft, Mem #74592026
Hi Mammaquilts,
George Chalkraft is my Great Grandfather, and I am wondering where all the detailed information on his memorial page came from. Do others provide the info, or are you related?

Dear Mr. Willey ;
I have a John C. Tyler in the cemetery buried in Sec. 6, Lot 25, Gr. 10 next to Mary Jane Aldrich Tyler who is in Gr. 9. He died in Mentor on February 18, 1928 at age 86 and was buried on February 20, 1928. He died from Cirrhosis of the Liver. Hopefully this helps you.

RE: dupes
That would be easier to copy the uploaded one but it won'e be the quality of a first generation photo. I use an editing program to reduce the photos retaining the best quality and each copy of a copy after that is degraded to a degree. I will usually get to it in about a week though. I believe the one in question has been corrected and I will be removing mines. BTW the transcribers are really doing a job of screwing up memorials. I have seen dates such as 11925 from submitted edits. And one has six duplicate of the same. And the sad part is if that photo is attached to other memorials once deleted it will remove all the photos. that hurts on headstones with multi family members. Sooner or later the beta upload kinks will be worked out.
