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: Niederschulte #93059430
Thanks so much for the transfer. It means a lot. However, the information you provided in your response is ever more important to me. This family
attempted to leave Germany 2 times and was never given permission. The father (my ggg uncle) had a brother and sister that came to America in the 1860's and settled around St Louis. That was why I was so shocked to find them in Ohio! I used to listen to the old folks talk and tell stories when I was growing up. Never once, did I hear a peep about the family in Ohio. That is why I love genealogy. I did a little research but it doesn't appear that there were any grandchildren from this family so I am disappointed that there were no living descendants. Does that church have records for christenings? I can hardly wait to come up for a visit! You don't know how much I appreciate your help Robert

Hi-I have searched for this family since I started doing genealogy 35 years ago. This is my ggg-uncle. I live in Ga. but am planning a trip to your area next year. Would you consider a transfer of this family to me? Thanks! Robert

RE: Mary Featherby
Thank you for all the info. The "Mary Featherby" in the memorial is stated as having been born in 1785 and death in 1834. The Mary Wilks-Featherby I have as married to Joseph Featherby b. 1799-d. 1874 was born about 1798 in Pennsylvania and died sometime in 1847 in Edinburg, Portage, Ohio. Could the Mary in the memorial be the mother of the Joseph Featherby b. 1799… I know she would have been YOUNG, but I've seen it in those days.

Hello: While I appreciative of your photos of the lovely flowering tree in the cemetery --the memorial of Clayton H. Propper #70381441 is somewhat overpowered by all the cemetery stones. Could I request that you reframe his headstone photo so that all the other background stones are blocked out or removed. I was not aware that you had posted two photos on his memorial until today.
Please get back to me with any questions here. Best Regards,
D. Montgomery
