Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogist and historian of higher education, with special interest in 19th century and early 20th century American higher education administrators, my own family tree, friends' family trees, and Cleveland area history. I've taken many photos in nearby Standing Rock Cemetery in Kent, Ohio. In July 2012, I entered memorials for all readable headstones (not already represented in Find A Grave) in St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church cemetery in Garfield Heights, Ohio where my family has a lot of history. I've also taken photos and worked in Calvary Cemetery and Lakeview Cemetery in Cleveland, and other cemeteries in Cuyahoga and Portage counties as well as places I just happen to visit. If you see errors, typos, or incorrect links - my apologies! Please let me know so I can correct them.

RE: GEORGE W. ROUSE
Thank-you,Janice, for the transfer of my Rouses :-)! That was very kind of you :-). I see you have the Gen Bug really bad, LOL :-)! You found info that a lot of people missed :-). Yes, that was my Renn Sr in Nunda. And there was another Rouse in Grinnell, George W. & John B.'s brother ,(& my G.G.G Grandpa,) Franklin Rouse & his family :-). His wife, Maggie Davies Rouse, along with John B. and another brother, James. L. are all buried in the Hazelwood Cemetery in Grinnell, along with Lucius Rouse, who we suspect is a relative of some sort. The eldest brother Renn Jr. died in Missouri. His family moved to Oregon & than on to Northern California. The youngest brother, Charles Augustus Rouse died at Gettysburg :-(. And there were 2 sister's (8 children of Renn Sr & wife Elsie Adams, which other records have her born in Massachusetts)...the daughters were Emily Rouse Hinds & Laura Jane Hallock of Ann Arbor Michigan. It took me over 25 years to find them all :-)! WHEW !!! Have a Great Day, Janet & Family :-)

RE: GEORGE W. ROUSE
Hi Janice :-)! Did you do all that research on George W. Rouse ? Including the part where he list his Dad as R. Rouse & Mom as Elsie Adams Rouse ? I'd like to know where that info came from, as that adds Another bit of info on George having R. Rouse as his father, just as his older sister Emily also listed her Dad as R. Rouse. R. Rouse died about 1843, so either the kids didn't really know his full name, or whom ever wrote out the certificates had no clue how to spell it all & just put down R. I would Love to have George's memorial, as I seem to be the only Rouse researcher of this family, for over 30 plus years well Until I found one of my 'lost cousin' Robin about 10 years ago, as we 'stumbled' over eachother as she was just starting The Search :-)! My G. G. Great Grandpa Franklin Rouse was the elder brother & knew his Dad's full name, Thank Heavens :-)! Van Rennselaer Rouse...you can see why his name was a 'problem' :-). He went by Renn a lot, as did the 'kids' named after him thru the years . Thank-you for all the hard work you did with George and family :-) Janet & Family :-)

Thank you SO much for taking pictures for me. I really appreciate the time and effort you put in to helping me out, and for all of the others you help, too.

Would you mind if I save these to add to my tree on Ancestry? I will gladly credit you for the photo. :)

Thanks!

RE: Lucy Myers
My sincerest apologies for not responding previously. I didn't know there was this message page! Oh my! I have a few to go through. I've been having trouble with find-a-grave as I've tried to sponsor other relatives near and dear to me and also some allied family members but it never take the credit card information and just freezes the screen...errrrrr!! can't seem to find any way to get their help and I'm a little cautious now with information and pics I've taken about posting them now. I miss aunt Lucy dearly and have lost touch with that part of the family. Any information would be great and if I can get this sponsorship thingy worked out that will be even better! Maybe I'm capped at sponsoring so many graves...I'm clueless! Again, mucho sorry for the late response but I didn't know this message board was here!

Houck
Janice, thanks so much for the memorial photos of Maude and Steven Houck! Maude was a long lost link that I finally connected the dots on recently, so I now can feel that one small corner of my research is neatly closed.

Aul Marker photos
Thank you for putting the marker photos on Lillian and her brother in law Frederick for me.
Lillian's family must have wanted her marker to have the Hodgson name.

Much appreciated. Barbara
