|Bio and Links|
|I'm a 70 year, old-how did that happen?-female who was born in Fremont Ohio. We moved to California when I was 6. My mother grew up on a farm close to Oakland Cemetery in Sandusky Ohio.I'm told it was located where the First Congregational Church now stands.I had 14 Aunts and Uncles on her side and eight on my father's side.He was also from Sandusky.I was told one of my Uncles served as a longtime caregiver to the Oakland Cemetery grounds there.|
When I started working on a family tree and found your site it seemed like a nice thing to do. As I learn more about where people in my family are buried I may be asking some of you for help with photographing graves.
My daughter and I often visit cemeteries in our weekend wanderings anyway.This seemed a logical step. I enjoy the history and variety ways people are memorialized. I've been less active lately due to health issues but hope to get more involved soon.

Thank you for posting the tombstone photo of Jo Ann Wright. I really appreciate it.
|Anonymous||RE: Carla Peterson's Photo|
Before I visited I called the cemetery office and the man I spoke to said it was "behind the restroom door," which didn't make a whole lot of sense to me, as it made it sound as if she was buried in the restroom, which seemed unlikely. But I did check, just in case. She wasn't there, either. I even dodged sprinklers and checked in the new area, too.
|Anonymous||Carla Peterson's Photo|
Thank you so much for my friend, Carla's gravestone photo. It means so much to me. I visited the cemetery once, but couldn't find it. What was the plot?
|Genealogy Bug Kate||James Wayne Strait|
Thanks for the photo of the location of James' marker. I would appreciate photos of the markers of the other Strait's buried in Acacia Memorial Park. Did you by chance take a photo of the marker with Ada Charlene Strait on it? I believe that she may be James' wife.
