Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was profoundly impressed when I saw my own name on a tombstone at a young age- I had a great aunt with the same name who died the year after I was born. At that moment I realized "Hey, those are real people, with real lives buried there, not just stones!"
Since then I have had a real appreciation of tombstones and who they represent. I take pictures of stones that touch me, as well as those of people I have met.

Percy Henry Harmon
Hi Mary.
Regarding Percy Henry Harmon, memorial 14952311: per my records, his mother is my ggg-aunt Lavina Buchtel, who was married to Daniel Harman (or Harmon, depending on where you look - his gravestone has Harman). Do you have something that points to his mother being Mary Kirk as you note in the memorial?

James C. Hay memorial #19856650

On March 3, 2016 I sent an edit for the biography of James C. Hay. To date (Sept. 13, 2016) it has not been added. Do you still have it or should I send it again, or do you not intend to add it?

William C. Stark,

Maria Susan Crosier DeVoe
Cuyahoga Marriage Records indicate that Maria Crosier married Luke B. DeVoe on 4 Jul 1838.

In the U.S. 1850 census for Euclid, both Luke and Maria are listed. Their children at that time were Letitia, Henry, Sarah, Almira, Sedate, Adella, and Adalaide.

Thanks for your work in posting information about this family.

I just rechecked and both photos are back on the memorial page. So perhaps it was just a computer glitch, I have never had this happen before. Sorry if I startled you by thinking you deleted them

According to the posting on his memorial you stated that no pictures were to be posted. The photo I had posted of him was removed and also the new photo of his monument that was only posted this week.

Isaac John Dial is my G. Uncle and I would like to have these photos put back on his memorial. Please tell me the reason you had the photos removed? Are you also a relative?

Find a Grave Community Day
I follow them on FB and for Find A Grave Community Day some people will be going to Woodland Cemetery to meet and photograph!
The idea is to get as many gravers as possible in the US (or abroad!) to fill outstanding photo requests, take photos for new entries, and meet others in their area.
I have you on my 'friends list' as a Cleveland peep, so I wanted you to know. There are already 3 of us signed up.
