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 early 2015 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 Lake View 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: Benjamin Chamberlain Standing Rock Cemetery
Thank you so much Janice for your hard work in adding these memorials. I would not have known it was there if not for you. Thanks for giving me the memorial also!

Benjamin Chamberlain Standing Rock Cemetery
Hello Janice, I was stunned to see this memorial! I did not think he was even buried here? As him and his wife moved to another state. He had an infant child when he passed. Luckily, I found a descendant who had the Chamberlain family bible and copied the record pages for me. I did not read through all your messages to see if you link memorials to parents or turn over the memorials to family members? Are either of these possible? He was my grandfathers uncle. This has not been an easy family line since, Benjamin's father William P was adopted by Newman Chamberlain Stow, Ohio. I have memorials for his parents. I am very happy to have seen this! Thank You!

Thanks, Larry

Hi Janice, Would you be willing to delete one of the photos on this memorial, so I can add a photo of Elizabeth Rawson Price? Thanks!

May I please have your permission to download the photos you took of their grave stones and add them to my tree on Ancestry. Credit will be given to you and Find a Grave.
Thank you

His mother was named Mary Lucinda St Clair, Morton not McWhorter. Common mistake for some.

Bernhardt Elfring - Elm Lawn Cemetery
Hi Janice - FYI that I looked into this further and I'm sure they were moved from St. Johannes in Bensenville in between the time the two memorials were created. The Find A Grave page for that cemetery says there' been a relocation project going on there since 2010. I was also at Mount Emblem cemetery in Elmhurst last night (which isn't that far from St Johannes) and found at least 30 people who've been moved there but still have memorials under the St. Johannes page. The same contributor seems to own all of them so I'll start sending the edits later in the week. Thanks again for bringing this to my attention. Warm Regards, Stacey
