Thayer M Bishop/Mary Thayer
Hi Again - The Cleveland Register shows the name as Thayer Bishop. It also showed that she was disinterred. I couldn't find where she was reinterred until I got your email which clarified things. You had added her under her correct name of Mary Thayer and have her buried in Glendale Cemetery, so I deleted my entry. Thank you so much for this information. Cindy

RE: Erie Street - cleveland
Hi Zella - I have had several contributors mention to me about the duplicates that the other contributor had made of my memorials. I didn't realize that amount though! I had previously advised the admins, I am just waiting for a response from them. Thank you for letting me know. Cindy

John Williams
RE: John H. Sandrus
Note: All Civil war records give his name as John H.; the obit was apparently in error (he had a son named Johnson K.P.); his age was also incorrect. Government issue tombstone was provided in 1879 giving place of burial as "Hutchingsons" in Eldorado; another entry says buried 'at or near Altoona'.

Apparently he was removed to Oak Ridge at some point. Hutchinsons is nearly destroyed; could a government issue stone still exist for him there?

The stone at Hutchinsons was for both John and His Wife. The government stone at Oak Ridge was only for John.

I never mentioned Rose Hill for this Person.

Blair Penlow
A Blair Penlow is listed in the 1860 Census, Blair Co., Pa. As age 2, s/o Haiden Penlow. This would make him born abt 1858. Could the 1852 birth date be an error? Otherwise it could be the same person I was searching for.
Thank you

No need to type it over, but you may want to put a note that if they click on the article picture it will enlarge it enough to read the bio. Thank you.

RE: Grace Page Clark - East Akron
I wasn't able to find her in the 1870 census either. The date was given to me by another researcher.

Thanks for your kindness. I'm not finding them in my database, but that was considerate of you to go the extra mile.

Zella Powell Bracken
I take a lot of photos in my area of Pennsylvania which includes Corry. I recently added a marker for Davis/Powell, just names no other info. so then I started trying to run down some info and was able to and found that Ora and William Powell had a daughter Zella that married a Herbert Bracken. I can't seem to trace Zella and family, but then I ran across your Bracken memorial and your name Zella. (What are the chances?) anyway, was wondering are you related?

I did want to mention that I do disagree with adding census, etc. to a memorial. If there is no other info, especially if I don't really know them, I think it is better to have some info than just a blank page. Should hopefully make it easier for a family member to track down.

RE: Bonstedt
I've seen his name written both was as Carl Wilhelm and Charles William. Perhaps at some point he changed to the American sound of his name. Would you mind making a note of the two names on his page? I'm also researching the Guth family and I've found several of them that changed the spelling to Good.

RE: Infirmary Cemetery - Akron
She was living with her brother-in-law and sister in Hinckley in 1870. (Zacharias & Susannah Marquitt) Another brother-in-law and sister lived in Brunswick. They all died a few years before or after her. All her other relatives were in Michigan. As far as I can determine, she is not buried in Hinckley Ridge with the others in of her family.

Betsey Seaton. She is listed on two different records. She was born in Vermont ~1801 and died 25 Oct 1875. She never married.

Infirmary Cemetery - Akron
Do you know where one could find records of older burials? I have a great aunt who died at the County Infirmary in 1875. Haven't found a burial for her in any of the cemeteries used by others in her family.

I've changed Sarah's burial to "Unknown" at this time.

I added her to Glendale Cemetery. Thanks for pointing that out. I don't know how that happened.

William DeCoursey
RE: Mary Decouvy Ley
I'm sorry, but, from what you say, I must have been mistaken mixing up a certain Mary DeCoursey with your Mary DeCouvy. They were contemporaty in the Akron area. My 3rd great grandfather, Isaac DeCoursey (1793-1884) and his brother, Jonathan DeCoursey settled in neighboring Wayne and Medina Co. before 1815. Isaac DeCoursey was founder of the town of Rittman, Ohio. Jonathan DeCoursey was frequently mentioned in the Akron Press in the 1820s. Isaac DeCoursey moved to Wisconsin about 1836 and Jonathan later left for Indian and Michigan, but left some DeCoursey and Corsaw descendants in Ohio. Jonathan had a granddaughter, Mary DeCoursey, of about the same age as your Mary DeCouvy. Spelling differences on records are quite common, hence the confustion. I'm usually very careful; but in my effort to sort out the DeCoursey descendants, I no doubt made and error in this case. I apologize. I'm 83 years old, and I transcribed the information from from notes that I made after researching the records in Ohio back BC (before computers). I was not aware of the DeCourvys of Akron. Thank you for calling my attention to it. W. L. DeCoursey.

RE: Sidney
Thanks for transforming Sidney Fosters memorial to me and for all the trouble recreating it. You have done a great job on all the memorials you created. I am just getting started with FOG and hope to be with FOG for years to come. I still have many more family members to create whom are not listed but are known to be buried in the Georgia cemetery's. But I will let you know which ones I need.
