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

RE: Genieve Cuiskelly.
Thank you, you are right. I did find a 1920 census and her married record as Jenevieve and she signed it as Jenevieve. Her 1910, 1930, 1940, city directory, yearbook, death index and cemetery index have Genevieve. What do you think about keeping her first name as Genevieve and adding Jenevieve as her nickname to cover the difference?

Thank you very much for your help!

RE: Belle/ Arabelle Needham
There is NO reasonable record of her name being "Isabelle." That is a misreading of her name on the 1850 Census by FamilySearch. Ancestry, tax records, and family descendants all say Arabella. Another record -- page 141 of THE ANCESTORS AND DESCENDANTS OF HORATIO EDMUND NEEDHAM AND LUCINA BAGLEY by Melva Kinch Breffeilh and Shirley Kinch Morrison (Lake Charles, Louisiana: M. Breffeilh, 1995) records it as "Arabella." This book is available in the Family History Library, in Salt Lake. Please change the maiden name on the memorial to "Bissell." Thank you.

RE: Belle/ Arabelle Needham
Please reconsider. Cuyahoga County Tax Records for four different years -- 1864, 1865, 1866, and 1867 -- all say "Arabella Needham." Those are legal records, must be her legal name. Thank you.

RE: Belle/ Arabelle Needham
You say "Isabelle," I say "Arabelle." Please reconsider. Compare the first letter of the name to her brother and sister. Is her brother's name "Augustus" or "Iugustus?" Is her sister "Angenetta" or "Ingenetta?" Ancestry.Com translates it "Arobella."

Hi, I believe this is my 2nd Great Aunt on my maternal grandfathers side- their surname is Holeton. I believe this may be Melinda E. Holeton who married G.W. McCorkey/McConkey and later married Mr. Maison. If this is her, then her maiden name is Holeton in lieu of Holston per probate records and other family records. Based on your information, do you think this could be the same person?

Thanks for your consideration.

Thank you so much for accepting the edits for the Bonsteel family. It is so good to see this family coming together!

And thank you for all of your work on find-a-grave. What I'm doing never would have been possible without your initial work in posting these memorials.

Take care.
