Bio Photo The stone in my photo says it all

"This is Me"

This stone can be found in the Mentor City Cemetery, Mentor Ohio. It is part of a family plot towards the back of the cemetery. There is a main family stone and than this one. It's not the prettiest stone by far but the guy had a sense of humor. I smile everytime I see it.


Now to more Find A Grave stuff.

You know what truly amazes mamaquilts, is the number of people who send her an email stating that the memorial she has created is a duplicate. Then it turns out that the other memorial is a duplicate because it was created after the one that Mamaquilts made. Mamaquilts does report people who purposely create duplicates.

Please use the Edit buttons found on each memorial. They do make is much easier for updates to be done.


for transfer of the memorial with a statement as to why you want to have the transfer made (family member, friend, military etc). If it falls outside of the Find A Grave rules, mamaquilts has the last say as to whether or not she'll transfer. She is very accommodating with transfers.

Please remember that most of the people here on Find A Grave are volunteers and do have lives out side of this site. Please wait the 30 days for corrections to be done.


UPDATE: Due to personal reasons at times edits might take up to 30 days to get completed. Please wait.

In March of 2014, Mamaquilt's Dad was killed in an accident. If you would like to visit her Dad's memorial you can find it here

Transfer of memorial
Hi "Mamaquilts"!!

I was wondering if you would consider transferring Find A Grave Memorial# 60472542 (Harry H Ryan) to me. You graciously transferred his wife (Ethel Fuller Ryan) to me, a bit ago. They are my husband's grandparents. I currently manage my husband's parents memorials as well. Your consideration is greatly appreciated.

I wonder if you would consider transferring my father-in-law's twin sister & her two husbands as well:

Stella May Ryan Marsch: Find A Grave Memorial# 60472470

Frederick J. Fasham: Find A Grave Memorial# 60472469

Charles A. Marsch: Find A Grave Memorial# 60660964

If I have overstepped my "amount" of requesting, PLEASE forgive me, and I request that Harry Ryan be given top priority. I will ask again at another time for the other 3. Thanks so much. I have to say that we appreciate, so much, that this memorials exist, as we live out of state, and are unable to "visit" them, except for these pages.

Please accept my condolonces in your father's recent passing.

RE: Potter's field / Cleveland
Hi Mamaquilts,

From the information I've found, most burials in Potter's Field were listed under Highland Park before 1992. I say most, because for some there are no records at the cemeteries (for example, my two great aunts). At that time it was not designated a separate cemetery, however, if you look at the two cemeteries on a map, Potter's Field is not connected to Highland Park, and the entrance to Potter's Field is on Green St. You can see here:
that the City of Cleveland now lists Memorial Park as a distinct cemetery. Do Irene Kos and Adolph Kliment have marked graves in Highland Park? If not, since they were buried in section 300, I think they're in Memorial Park (Potter's Field).
I know that it has been a source of shame for many to say they have relatives buried there, but I do not feel that way. My great great aunts had a very hard life, and, time permitting, I would like to find out as many details of the people buried there and add them to their memorials. But I think it would be a good thing to acknowledge their existence in these unmarked graves. If you want to contact me, my email is

Thank you,

Hi Mamaquilts,
Do you know if Mr. Hurysum is buried in Potter's Field? I recently discovered I have two great great aunts buried there (here's one - # 137440617) and I wanted to add as many names to the Potter's Field Cemetery I could find. I contacted Cynthia Turk with the Cleveland City Cemetery Index project asking her how to identify Potter's Field burials since they are listed under Highland Park, and she said that they're designated Section 300. So, I'm looking at Highland Park Register of Interments from 1961, and the first one in Section 300 is Mr. Hurysum.
Can you shed some light on this? My father's family was in Cleveland for a couple of generations, but I am unfamiliar with the area and have never been to the cemetery.
Thanks so much,
