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, and as of late 2014 I am close to having done a full sweep of that cemetery. 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.

As a practice, I generally don't link memorials I manage to floating memorials (no cemetery assigned) unless there is documentation that the individual does not have a grave (e.g. burial at sea, cemetery washed away.) It's kinda cheating to make a memorial just because you know someone died, but you don't know where the burial took place, so please respect those who do the hard work of matching people to gravesites by records or by foot. After all, the site IS called FindaGrave, so don't add memorials if you didn't... well, you know... find a grave. :)

RE: John T. King
Hi Janice,
Thank you for your note. I've been doing my Evans/King family history, and have added some info to these pages, as you can see.
If you could transfer these to me, I'd appreciate it.
thanks for your help.

RE: William Groves/Graves
Thanks....all taken care of! Yes, I do keep a close watch on this cemetery and always check new additions. Because I am aware of the misspelled names on the records and knowing that all pre-1941 burials have already been added, I try to check the new listings to avoid as much duplication as possible. Keeps me busy! :) Thanks again.

RE: Stoll plot in Standing Rock Cemetery
Janice, thank you so much for your nice post on my page. Thank you, too, for offering to let me manage the Stolls. I am a distant relative, so it's up to you. My contributor # is 139476483, but if you prefer to manage them since my relation is distant, that's fine with me. Thanks again!

I want to thank you for the memorial #12220198 Gertrude M. Arighi Richardson. She was my aunt, married to my mothers brother. I have searched for any information I could find on her. I have information on her husband, my uncle John, who was buried in WV, but all the information on her was lost to me. I knew after he died she went to Kent, Ohio to live with a niece and that she died while there. I was not sure of her surname and now I feel like I have a new door way to information. Thanks again.
