Hi, my name is Amy and I'm a wife, mom to two boys, and full-time medical transcriptionist. When I'm not working I spend as much time as I can on genealogy research and visiting cemeteries. This site has been so helpful, it's my hope that I can help others in the same way. When I visit a cemetery, I often take several random headstone photographs, and I do my best to create a detailed memorial if one has not already been created. If I've added a memorial for someone that you care about, please contact me and I'll be happy to transfer their memorial to you.
You're welcome to repost any headstone photographs I've taken - it's appreciated if credit is given, but it's certainly not necessary.
In my own family research, I'm particularly interested in the Harnett and Froelich families of Cuyahoga County, the Schilling family of Lorain County, and the Van Hyning family of Summit County.
If you have the time, please stop by and visit my beautiful Mom, my sweet cats Sofie and Penny, and our beloved Toby who went to heaven on April 17, 2015.
Thank you! Thank you, Amy Elizabeth, for putting my grandparents on here! I am Eleanor Gertrude Weinland Sherman's granddaughter... How cool to see Grandmother on here... She died when I was 9; I was named after her.
I don't ever get up to Cleveland anymore (I live in FL); the last time I visited her was in 1990. I loved seeing her and Grandad on here...
Froelich Family Hello, I'm not sure if you are related to the Froelich family or not, but I noticed you maintain a lot of their memorials. I found Louis William Froelich brother of August Fred Froelich, Find A Grave Memorial# 144168394. He was buried at Crown Hill Cemetery between August and his wife Thelma. Louis's memorial is Find A Grave Memorial# 161018743 and I have added links to his parents and wife. (As well as grave marker photos for him, his brother and his wife). Please let me know if you are related and I will transfer the memorial.
RE: Brockway & Jaquith Hi Amy - Nancy Ella (Jaquith) Van Hyning's father, William Henry Jaquith, was the brother to my great-great grandmother, Abigail Rebecca (Jaquith) Brockway. William & Abigail's father, Josiah Jaquith, had a store of some type, on the square in Sharon Center. Josiah died in the summer of 1842, leaving a wife & 3 children. If you're interested in exchanging information, my email is LDickin628@aol.com Lynnea Davenport, Iowa
Van Hyning memorials The original memorials are listed in the wrong cemetery. The Van Hynings are in Pitman Chapel Cemetery. The one Find A Grave has listed as Pitman Cemetery is really Pitman Family Cemetery. (see sign in cem. photo and look up Pitman Chapel Cem.) I've tried for some time to get them to straighten this mess out, sent admin emails, etc., but nothing ever happens. The two cemeteries are pretty close together, but are NOT the same thing. The Pitman Family Cemetery just has the Pitman family and relatives in it. I think the lady that created these just copied from some transcriptions and didn't understand they are two different cemeteries. She put all the people in Pitman Chapel Cem. into the Pitman Family Cem., along with the ones that belong there. I've messaged her and emailed admin, and sent edits, but nothing ever gets changed. I live only a few miles from these cemeteries, know them well. At least my duplicate put them into the right cemetery. I'm not going to put a picture on one in the wrong cemetery. Maybe you have some ideas on how we can get this all fixed. I hope!
Thomas & Margaret Lewis Thank you for photographing and uploading the photo of the headstone of Thomas & Margaret Lewis (#132953143 & #132817846). They were my great grandparents, and died before my father was 4 years old. It is comforting to see their memorial is still attractive.
