Originally from SE Ohio. I've been researching the surnames of Fischer, Mayle, Singer, and Hardin(g) on my mother's side, and surnames of Marshall, Levandoski, Korpela, and Jokinen on my father's side.|

All 3 are yours now. I wish we knew who put the markers on Singer and the other 3 people. It is driving me crazy! I found information on 2 of them, but the 3rd one is a baby, and I doubt I will ever find her.

I pulled up Uno Korpela's memorial intending to transfer him to you. Unfortunately you made a duplicate of our memorial. If you delete your duplicate, I will be pleased to transfer our memorial to you along with his wife, Hannah Korpela. Find-A-Grave rules prohibit making duplicates. We also have a Raymond Korpela #105489351 in Maplewood who is most probably related to you, Korpela being rather uncommon. Look at Raymond and see if you think he is yours also. (If you use the edit button at the top of a memorial page, you can request a transfer in the box that pops up. F-A-G will send me an e-mail with your request, and that way I won't miss seeing it.)
I made the transfer of Clyde to you. When I went to his memorial, I remebered that there was a sort of mystery associated with his marker. The marker was difficult to locate and get to--down a very steep hill and almost into the woods. I see many graves where there is only the little metal marker installed by the funeral home, but in this case somebody had added a license plate attached to a concrete block and painted it with the name and dates. There are 3 other similar markers next to the Singer marker. They all have Guinther Funeral Home metal markers with the license plates beautifully written in calligraphy letters. The person adding them knew the graves were there and came prepared to add the homemade markers. We are wondering if they are related to Clyde Singer in some way--maybe by marriage. The names are Floyd Wogan, Danielle F. Rooker, and Keister Weisfoot. It seems proabable that these are somehow connected. Check them out and you may find more relatives!
We've got a busy morning ahead, but later today I will look at these people and transfer. We love finding "lost" family for others and would prefer that their family members have their memorials. Half my dad's family is in a cemetery in Texas and 99% of them are "owned" by a contributor who follows strict transfer lines. She is not related, never knew them, and doesn't link or add information. Getting information added is like pulling teeth! That is why we have a lenient transfer policy. Anyway, we will make the transfers as soon as we can.

Greetings. Most likely I found it via Ancestry.com. I usually check the database when I'm adding to Find-A-Grave. Cheers, Bill.
No, neither my wife or I are related to the Korpelas. I was in Glouster last month with my son photographing gravestones of some of my wife's ancestors, mainly in Maplewood, Hollister and Glouster cemeteries. One of my wife's relatives who lives in Columbus took us to see the Russell and Sands cemeteries and we took a number of random photos there. We almost did not make it up the hill at Russell, living in Houston we are not used to steep hills! If you would like me to transfer the memorials for the Korpelas to you, please let me know.
