|Bio and Links|
I've been working my family tree for over 30 years now and I'm still finding information. Some of the surnames I've been looking for are EVERHARD, GIBSON, GILBERT, LIGHT, SPICE, SPROUSE, WOODSON, YOCKEY.|
Since I have received a wealth of knowledge from Find-A-Grave memorials, I also photograph headstones in various cemeteries and upload the information and image. I do not mind updating memorials nor transferring them if they are not related to me--just let me know.

Thanks for the information, I put it in a note in her bio. I appreciate all the information and things you do for Findagrave, and I know others will too.
I noticed on your profile that you are researching Everhards. My great grand aunt, Olive Nina Hoffman (1871-1950) married Charles Daniel Everhard (1870-1921), s/o Isaac and Matilda Ream Everhard.

Thank you so much for the excellent tombstone photograph for Katie Kendig Miller. I am very grateful for your kindness in taking the time to do this for me.

I have been going through my Akron City Directories for my Find A Grave listings. I have them from 1859 to 1969. I decided to check out Deloss Smith. Here's what I found:
D. Smith, lab, works - north side - Liberty St., by Bever St. & Akron Road.
Delos Smith, agent - Howe Sewing Machines, over City Bank, Market St., home - 512 S. Broadway St.
Delos Smith, clerk - N.E. Van Sickle.
Nicholas E. Van Sickle was a railroad contractor plus he was a dealer in cigars & tobacco. He was located at 105 E. Market St., Van Sickle lived at 116 N. Broadway St.
From 1880 untill 1889, Deloss lived at 146 S. High St. No occupations were listed for these years. They spelled his name all sorts of ways, DeLoss, DeLos, Delof.
From 1895 on, Deloss is not listed in the Akron Directories. He may have moved to Wadsworth by then. I don't know.

I really don't know any more about Julia that I have listed. I don't think the headstone is wrong only because the stonecutter was there at "that" time doing the job. However, I have come across two stones in my years at cemeteries that was repaired and new deathdates were inscribed over the old ones. So stonecutters "did" make mistakes. But I have no answer for this one. Sorry! Ed ~

Thanks for doing that.

I believe that's the same one because in my great grandfather's obit. her last name is spelled with a "d" in it. I believe whoever buried her spelled the last name wrong, she was the last one to die so, to be honest, I have no idea who buried her. Martha's headstone is next to her half-brother's, Homer Napier. Even though the names are spelled differently, I believe that is her husband. Thank you a million times for photographing that.

I have a question, you took a photo of Bledsoe S. Rodgers at this cemetery. Do you by chance know if Martha Rogers was buried next to him?? I'm wondering because I have not been able to find out who her husband was and my mom thought his first name was Bledsoe. I notice there is a marker at the top of the grave that says father....is that a footstone for another grave or is that actually part of his. They didn't have children that is why I was wondering.

I have made the changes that you requested for Sheena and David Marrs.
Thanks for your efforts and contributions to Find A Grave so that we all can share information on our loved ones.
