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.

Clarence Griffin
First, I want to say thank you for the work you do to aide genealogists everywhere! I do appreciate the information you make available.

I have sent you an edit request for the parents of Clarence Griffin. Here is why:

In researching my family, I have come across the Griffin family and am confused by some information posted on Clarence Griffin's memorial - # 43288606. The son of David Leander Griffin & Amanda Edith Chevalier who was named Clarence was Clarence Austin Griffin. Clarence Austin was born 15 Jul 1900 in Troy, Athens, OH & died Apr 1966 in Whiting, Lake, IN.

Clarence S. (Sullivan) Griffin whom you have listed is actually the son of George D. Griffin and Fannie Forrest Robert. George & Fannie's son was born in Tennessee.

If I am confused about this information, please send me the corrected info.

RE: General Information ~
I live in Mifflinburg in the central part of the state. I've visited Cook Forest which is a beautiful area. Mifflinburg is in the middle of Buffalo Valley in Union County and about 11 miles west of the West Branch of the Susquehanna River.

Just wondered if you were aware of this great resource for Cuyahoga County obits.

I've found that sometimes folks from ajoining counties have obits in Cuyahoga County. Just sharing.

Thank you very much for adding her maiden name. Her parents were Henry and Mary (Spade) Ulm but there are no memorials for them and I don't know where they are buried.
