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.

On this memorial, George Bryant Gardner is listed as the first husband. He was her third. William Ford was her first. Lyman Stevens her second.

Nathan Henry Stevens, her son, is my great grandfather.

Thanks for the transfer. It's nice to communicate with a fellow cousin. I also am researching Wood, but through your bio, I don't think we're related with that surname. Keep up your great work. Thanks

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

RE: Woods in Wakeman
Good to hear from you Ross. Hopefully spring has finally made a consistent stay here in Northern Ohio. Appreciate you touching base now and then. Looks like you have some research to do in Mich.

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.

Woods in Wakeman
In accordance with your requests, I have just completed uploading photos for the following:

Carrie Johnson
Laura & George Gerber
Beverly & Russell Vutech
Betty Vutech
Axel Johnson
Libbie Currier (Note that the year of birth on the stone is 1897, however, the Memorial has 1896).

I trust these are the complete names as per your requests. If I have omitted anyone or you have additional names, I would be delighted to investigate and photograph them.

RE: Wood lineage
RE: Carrie Wood Johnson (88130359)
Ross,

I will be delighted to check this out. According to my preliminary investigation, the Cemetery Census Book states she is in the same lot as Leslie, Birney, Eugene, and Ada Wood.

I will get to the cemetery sometime this week and take photos of her stone and the other Woods' in the same lot if they require a photo.

Coincidently, I also received another request this morning from another family for someone at Wakeman Cem. too.
