I am delighted to have found Find A Grave, and happy to contribute by adding memorials and photos.

Currently, I am "mowing the rows" in NE Ohio, including Medina, Wayne, Summit,Stark & Carroll counties. I never know just where my wanderings will take me, but I am usually looking for a cemetery.

Pittsburgh, PA, specifically the Homewood area is of particular interest. I am currently preparing to index a collection of ledgers from the Fisher & Owen Funeral Home that was located there from about 1912 through the early 50's.

So much information in these old volumes! It is exciting and at the same time, a bit overwhelming. If you have ancestors from that area, I don't mind doing lookups, and will soon have an eBay listing offering that service, or you can email direct through FaG.

Please know I am happy to make corrections, add information, and to transfer within the FaG guidelines, which can be found by following the "Help with Find A Grave" link.

Please make all requests/suggestions through the EDIT tab at the top-right of each memorial.

Cheers!

Jean Gaeton Soudry
Hello. You posted a listing for a Jean Gaeton Soudry on findagrave.com. Mentioned in the listing is his wife of 62 years, Ethel. I have a very strong suspicion that the Ethel mentioned is my first cousin 2x removed, but in order to confirm that I need additional information on this Ethel. Would you happen to know who her parents were, or a date and location of birth? Any info you have would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Edit spelling of names, please
Hello,
Regarding Andrzej and Maryanna Kaczmarek, mem #58111767 in St. Mary Catholic Cem. in Lorain County, Ohio, allow me to translate the Polish inscription on the stone into English.

Here lies the bodies of Andrew and Maryanna Kaczmarek. Remember them in your prayers.

The small "i" is Polish for "and" (not part of his first name). Andrzej changes to Andrzeja and Maryanna to Maryanny for the reason that we are being asked to remember them in our prayers.
That puts it in the accusative case.

Polish is a case-sensitive language and has 7 cases: nominative, genitive, instrumental, locative, dative, accusative, vocative.

Duplicate memorial
I thought you would want to know your memorial #66361304 Jane R Roach Ralston is a duplicate of memorial #23319127 Anna Jane Christina Rough Ralston. The dates, grave marker and family members are the same. The Grave Marker is shared with her husband William Rudicill Ralston I and Luckily he has not been duplicated. The grave is located in Brookfield Cemetery Massillon, Stark County Ohio.

I am not sure what is done to correct the duplication but perhaps you may know. I am emailing the other person as well so that both of you will know about the duplication.

William R Ralston I & his wife by many names with last name of Roach or Rough are my 3 GGG parents.

Warm Regards, Kitty

Hi,
Could you please remove the two husbands from Elizabeth Lance Welty's memorial. Those two men were married to her Aunt, Elizabeth Lance Dobson Miller (Mem# 11401300), my GGG-Grandmother. Thanks!
