Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have recently had transferred to Findagrave Administrative management most of my memorials in Geauga County, OH. Members of Geauga Genealogy Society are embarking on a major project of linking families' together, and this can be done by many under management of F-A-G.

I have been working on cemeteries in both Trumbull & Geauga counties, and most recently, a little in Lake County, all in Northeast Ohio. This area of Ohio is part of the Connecticut Western Reserve. Many of the original settlers came from Connecticut; many on foot!

A lot of the birth and death information I have been able to get online from Death Certificate Records at familysearch.org, which provides images of the actual Ohio Death Certificates from 1908-1953. This also gives women's maiden names, and their mothers' maiden names, etc, which is very helpful to those doing geneology and trying to trace their family.

Many of the records for Trumbull county came from "Trumbull County Cemetery Inscriptions 1800-1930", published 1983, compiled by the Trumbull County Chapter of the OGS. Others I obtained from walking the cemeteries.

Since 2011, I have used the above inscription book to enter the records included the book for the following areas of Trumbull County

Greene Township - Greenlawn & Old South

Gustavus - North View Cemetery

Kinsman - Kinsman Cemetery

Mecca - East Mecca & West Mecca cemeteries

Bazetta - Hillside (Cortland) & West Bazetta Cemeteries

West Farmington - Hillside Cemetery

North Bloomfield - Brownwood Cemetery

Mesopotamia - Fairview Cemetery

Vernon - West View Cemetery

Hartford - West Street Cem

Fowler - North & Dugan Cemeteries

Brookfield - Brookfield Center

Bristolville - Evergreen

North Bristol - Sager

Hubbard - Maple Grove & Old North

Liberty - Church Hill & Seceder's Corners

Howland - Howland Twp. Cem

Weathersfield - Weathersfield Twp & Kerr (in Mineral Ridge)

Vienna - Vienna Township

Southington - Southington Center/Pinecrest, Deacon Creek, and Delightful

This is a joint effort. Many people have worked tirelessly on this website. Many hands make light work. Everyone's combined efforts is greatly appreciated!

For Trumbull County, most of the burials I have entered are older. In many areas, other contributors have been photographing entire cemeteries, and adding more recent burials along with photos.

Since January 2011, I have also been working on burials in Geauga County, Ohio; using records compiled by the Geauga County Genealogy Society; and computerized by county historian and Findagrave Contributor Teeter Grosvenor.

For Geauga Co., the DODs on the Cemetery Records may differ slightly from the DODs found on the Death Certificates found at Familysearch.org. The death dates given in memorials I create are those appearing in the Cemetery Records, and some of those may indicate the date of burial, not the actual date of death. Also, most of the birth/death locations appearing in my Geauga Memorials are from death certificates at Familysearch.org. A few are from the Geauga Vital Records info compiled by Teeter Grosvenor.

Also, at times, spelling of the same name appears a couple of different ways. For example, for the name "Gilmore", it appears as "Gilmore" and "Gillmore".

I have tried to enter the info into Find-A-Grave exactly as it appears on the Cemetery Records provided me by Jeanette Grosvenor. In my limited experience, I have found that Census Records, Death Certificates, etc. are not always spelled correctly, on the original document when they were originally written decades ago and even over a century ago, and subsequent transcriptions reflect how they were written originally. I apologize for any confusion in spelling.

Update 9/17/11

Certain entries for Ashtabula County, such as Orwell, Windsor and Colebrook Township; records obtained from and used with permission of Mr. Andrew Davis, Director of Grand Valley Public Library, Orwell, Ohio.

Update 12-2011

Have just begun working on burials in Lake County, Ohio, (east of Cleveland), using Lake County Genealogy Societys Cemetery inscrption pages at rootsweb.com. I will do these as I have time.

If you would like a transfer of a memorial I have created, please don't hesitate to ask. I will be more than happy to transfer the memorial to you. If there are any corrections that need to be made (i.e. dates, locations, etc.), please let me know and I will gladly make these changes.

However, please do not ask me to add information that is copyrighted, such as a direct copy and paste from another website. Please cite your sources so that I can include these.

I would appreciate it very much if you do not leave biographical info in the flower posts. If you have something you'd like for me to add and I will add it, or a transfer if you would prefer.

If you ask for a photo of a grave, a plot location would be appreciated. Where these have been made available on the records I have obtained info from, I have included these. These can usually be obtained by calling the cemetery and asking the people who work in the office, or the township where the cemetery is located, and talking to the trustees or the cemetery sexton.

Thank you.

RE: Fanny Parks
Hi Joel,

You left a message for me regarding Fanny Parks. Fanny was the first wife of Daniel Dayton and died in 1819 leaving behind several children. She is buried in the same cemetery as Daniel and his second wife Chloe Sophronia Humphrey.

Fanny Sophronia Dayton Fowler was the first child of Daniel and his second wife Chloe Sophronia. Fanny was named by her father for both of the women he loved, and was born 4 years after Fanny’s death. She was the first child of Chloe Sophronia Humphrey and my direct ancestor.

If you wish to add information to Fanny’s memorial please contact the Find A Grave member who oversees her memorial page. If Fanny & Daniel are direct ancestors for you and you want more information or a link added please let me know and I will be happy to add it.Since Fanny is not my ancestor this has not been a priority for me.

Thanks for connecting with me and for the work you are doing in an area rich with my ancestors.

Sallie Loomis' maiden name is Leamming or some derivation, which is why I am not changing it directly. I'm not certain the spelling is correct.

Hello

I have Millicent "Lillie" in the Wales Census dated 1861 and 1871 show her being born about 1852 or 1853 at Bassaleg, Monmouthshire, Wales. She was 9 and 18. This shows her parents as Frederick Brice and Ann. They came to America in 1872 according to the 1911 census in Canada. Hugh and her were there between 1907 and 1918. The 1880 US Census show her living with her brother and his wife, also her father, in Kansas City, Missouri. Her husband Hugh was my grandfather's uncle. My grandfather was also named Hugh James Graham

William West (Southington Cem)
A William West d. 1852 bur. Southington Cem and
a William West (1816-1901) bur. Delightful Cem:
Are either of these cemeteries now (or historically) burying grounds for the Deciples of Christ (Campbellites)? The elder William S. West who lived in Braceville (near both cemeteries) was an elder in that church movement of the early 1800s. I am trying to determine if Elder West is the William West buried at Southington. I am doing resarch on the Elder and have found that a William West also acquired bounty land in this vicinity prior to 1815. Would love to communicate with anyone interested in the early days of the Desciples in this region and specifically Elder William West. (See his pamplet online which shows he lived in Braceville at http://www.olivercowdery.com/smithhome/1830s/1837West.htm#pg14b
