|Zella||RE: Henry's obit|
LOL - I've been doing it for 41 years. :)

I made it to the library today and I looked at Henry's obit and the Masonic fuenral announcement. I didn't copy them, as I knew you already had them. But the Masonic references made me certain that he is indeed at Glendale. Glendale was the preferred cemetery of those involved with the Masons, and even had its own Masonic section. Also, all of his family are buried there, including those who pre-deceased him. He would not have been at Spicer or Middlebury as those were pretty much unused by 1855, and Mount Hope was well outside city limits at that point, used mainly for residents of Coventry Twp.

You should type the obits into the memorial - they would make a nice addition.

Oh also - I declined the edit on William since we know for certain from the obit that the burial year was wrong.

Okay - I have copied it over.
I do still have quite a big list of obits to look up, if I ever make it back over to the library. I have Henry's included. This weekend is supposed to be nice, so will probably be doing yard-work and hiking, and maybe some photographing at Glendale. I'll probably save the library for a rainy weekend.

I will go add in in now. BTW, it wouldn't be the "Beacon Journal" - probably the Summit Beacon at that point.

Re: William - did you want me to copy the obit into the bio? Site rules prohibits posting obits as photos. I really don't mind the small ones and I've never asked anyone to remove one, but I do like to try and stay within the site rules. So if you want me to copy the obit in the bio, and then remove the photo just let me know. I do think the older obits, especially the ones with poetry, look very nice typed into the bio area.
Did you locate the obit for Henry?

Regarding the microfilm reels of the newspaper - there are two sets. I always make the mistake of using the wrong set and then having to switch over to find the obit I want. :(

Sorry - I'm dense sometimes. I figured out afterward what you meant. I was thinking that you found an 'unknown' with that death date, and I went looking thru the records to locate the person. I did notice that there were very few burials listed for 1855. There are approximately 85 obits listed for 1855 in the newspaper; not counting children I would guess that would be maybe half of the deaths in Akron that year. The only non-sectarian cemeteries available in the area at the time were Glendale, Middlebury, Spicer and Mt. Hope. Since the Bangs family had already had some burials there, he should be at Glendale. The other three seem very unlikely. I know that not all burials are entered, I have found plenty of stones for folks who are pre-1891 and not listed in either book. We know the section and lot where his parents ended up, I bet there are fallen stones. A little archeological work might be necessary. :)

I found the one you were referring to, but that was Orlando Hall - he was who he was supposed to be:
