Bio and Links
Bio Photo Married to a wonderful woman, father of five children, step-father of one, and grandfather of two. Got the genealogy bug in 2010 after my eldest brother passed away. A huge gap of unknown Wood ancestors was my primary obstacle to surmount. Was fortunate enough to trace the Wood line back to the early 1800's in Erie Co., N.Y. beginning with Great (x 3) Grandfather Augustus B. Wood Sr. who had 9 children. I have been able to trace all nine of them, his son Francis Burton Wood is my (direct line) Great-Great Grandfather. Francis' son John Perry Wood is my Great Grandfather and his son Frank McKinley Wood my grandfather.
Had a good start with my mom's family (Gardner) and have been able to take it from there thanks to the assistance of so many great people within the FindAGrave community. The four primary families I research are Wood, Gardner, Gentry, and Clare. Also researching additional ancestorial lines from the families of Rew, Brayman, Crockett, DeWitt, Slaven, Perry, Mecham, Pierce, Allen, McCumber, Merkel and Vargas.

Wood family
Hello Ross, yes there is a connection in the Wood family to my wife. Lydia Amanda Wood Crane is her 2nd great-grandmother. She is a not too interested in the genealogy, but I have been working on my family about 40 years and hers about 30 years. I find Find A Grave very helpful at times, great site! Nice to hear from you, keep in touch. John

She is listed on one side of a tall, four-sided monument. Much of the information is illegible but the cemetery records list date of death as July 28 1885. The other names on the monument may include William J, Ruth Ann, Joseph, Jessie.

I have no additional info. You can try to contact the Cemetery office: 716-662-3714. Maybe they can provide more info.

RE: Woods in Wakeman
In regard to Helen Mae Gerber, I have found little information. She is not listed in the Huron Co. Cemetery Census book that goes to 1997.

However, I did find some information from some eclectic sources which follows:
Birth Helen was born on July 28, 1919.
Death Helen died on May 23, 1989 at 69 years old.

Helen M Kastor (1919 - 1989) was born on July 28, 1919. She was born into the Kastor family.

There are no known spouses or children on record for Helen. Helen died on May 23, 1989 at age 69.

Helen M Kastor's last known residence is at Wakeman, Huron County, Ohio.

The data on this page comes from the official record for Helen M Kastor in the SSDI (United States Social Security Master Death Index)

I also found some information on the following links:

The above links are for The Ohio Obituary Index

This site provides basic information and included sources for a copy of newspaper obituaries. Unfortunately, there is a fee to obtain them.

I trust this will be of some help.

I take 1000's of photos every year and get rid of them when I'm done, therefore you use the photo that is on the Memorial

Allen Wood photo request
In the upper left hand corner of the plaque marking Allen Wood's niche at Forest Lawn in Glendale is the name Ruth (1901-1931). I have a close up of the corner but could not find a memorial page for Ruth. Please send me her memorial page number and I will post the photo. Thanks.

RE: Woods in Wakeman
In fulfillment of your recent request, I have uploaded photos from Wakeman Cemetery for the following:
Coriene & Robert F. Gerber

I also uploaded photos for Robert T. Gerber whom I am assuming is their son based on birth years.

Incidentally, the rectangular flat stone with multiple names and another family included is a type I have rarely encountered.
