Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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.

Archie R. Gaylord in Stow Cemetery, OHIO
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.
Thanks again,

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.

I would very much appreciate permission to use the portrait you've posted on Cadwallader Washburn's memorial, on his profile at WikiTree.

Please let me know right away, if you have any objection.

Thank you for your time,

RE: William Guthrie ~
Thanks for your patience, Ed. Now, if I could understand the names of the parents reflected on William's page it would complete my picture to this point. Thanks again.

RE: Jane Guthrie ~
Thank you Mr. Ed. John (Jack) is linked to his mother but not to his father (5218230). The father's page also reflects William (5212654). The last para of William's text appears contradictory, in that it refers to James and Jeanette Wilson Guthrie. I can't determine where to place them. I can understand William marrying his cousin, and William is linked to John, but not to Jane. Is there an explanation? Thank you.

Guthrie Line
Checking pages for John Guthrie (5218230), wife Jane Reed (5215231) and their son John (5225048). Are Jane Reed Guthrie and Mary Jane Reed Guthrie the same person? Would it not be appropriate to link Jane with son John? I do not have the experience you have with these subjects, but would appreciate a response. Thank you. Fred S. Delp
