|Bio and Links|
Ever since I was very young, I've picked and pawed through old cemeteries. I love history and|
cemeteries are great history lessons. Here in the Akron, Ohio area there are many old cemeteries, Glendale being one of the oldest. Many notable figures of history now rest at Glendale and I have listed hundreds of them here on Find A Grave. The famous include: early industrialists, politicians, musicians, entertainers, etc. I have also listed thousands of the "common" people from this area. Also, I have covered some other areas around Akron such as: Cuyahoga Falls, Tallmadge, Mogadore, Hudson, Ellet, Barberton and Northampton Township. I will be listing other cemeteries and areas soon.
TRANSFERS > In most cases, I do not do transfers for these reasons: People ask for a transfer to add more infomation. But when I check back in a year or so, nothing has been added. Also, I find that many people get onto Find A Grave and "play around" with it for a few months and then lose interest and go on to something else. Then when I find additional information to add to a memorial that I had transfered to them, I e-mail it and never get a response and it's never added. So basically, I'm done playing games with these people.
If you have a relative that you'd like tranfered, e-mail me. I may do it. But in the future if I find more info for the memorial, I expect you to work with me and add it. If you don't want to do that, then leave the memorial in my care so it will be updated as more info comes my way. If this sounds harsh, I'm sorry, but I've had a lot of these people since I've started.
Recently I have aquired Akron City Directories from 1859 to 1969. I have begun to add these to my listings. They are helpfull as they show us the history of Akron as well as each person's occupation and home address. They help to fill in the puzzles.

I HAVE photographed her grave and found some details about her....plus the name is different however (B) has asked me to remove mine since you already had her submitted but with a different name....so either take my stuff I added and add to your page or please delete....thanks
When I did a search I didn't find that you had this person...sorry but F.A.G. doesn't always come up right when we look to see if someone has already added the names.

|Sheperd Family||Jacob and Mary Warner|
Ref "Mother Warner" #13752474. Her name is Mary Warner, with maiden name of Clary. Per Summit County Ohio records (1866-1908) Mary Warner died in Springfield Ohio on 22 Aug 1869 the same as inscription on stone. Her husband "Father Warner" #13752463, was Jacob Warner. No death record was found for him but his will was probated on 26 Nov 1850 in Summit County per Ohio probate records on Ancestry. His stone says 10 Nov 1850 for a death date which tracks with probate date. Their son William H. Warner #12840175 is in the same cemetery so you may want to link them all. Mary Clary Warner maiden name came from Maryland compiled marriages (1655-1850) on Ancestry.
Let me know if you have any questions on above. These are my 4th great grandparents.
|CLAY MARSTON||JOE DiMAGGIO JR|
YOU HAVE ENTERED A SLIGHT ERROR IN THIS LINE -
Joe Jr., was a U.S. Marine Corp. veteran.
WITH RESPECT TO THE UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS IT SHOULD ALWAYS BE LISTED AS ' CORPS ' AS YOU SEE HERE AND NOT CORP. ...
HOPEFULLY YOU WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE THE CORRECTION WHICH WOULD BE MOST GRATEFULLY APPRECIATED ...

Hi Ed, long time....
I knew it was your picture on Archie R. Gaylord without even looking. I appreciate the way you take the time to label all the family plots.
|Kiley Mann||James Christy|
I used the Edit button to connect James Christy born 1859 to his parents from his death record I had obtained.....they were all born Akron, Ohio His father James Christy and mother Janette Warner.
James the son was Pres. Central Savings and Trust co. on his death record plus,Pres of Hamilton Bldg co.
|Judy Eanes||Ethelwyn Sanford memorial|
Ethelwyn Albert married Cleon Sanford in 1911. Unless he had two wives named Ethelwyn, I believe the maiden name needs to be corrected. I've submitted an edit for you to review.

Find A Grave Memorial# 40186295
Just wanted you to know I found the marriage record for her and David. She was first married to a Roy B Hinkle. She was a Weese. I noticed on the marriage record that they spelled her father's name as Jade but its Jehu. I hope you don't mind that I put it on your site. Paul is my daughter-in-law's 2nd cousin 3x removed. Just wondering where the Mosse came from.
