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. :)

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

I just removed my duplicate of your memorial - I missed yours as I was only looking for the last name. I have her death cert and can post or not (your preference).

Bernhardt Elfring Edit - Elm Lawn
Hello! Thanks for sending, I'll have to contact the other contributor about moving theirs Elm Lawn since it's the original. Those are definitely two different cemeteries but I've never been to St Johannes in Bensenville so unless they have two markers, I know mine's the one in the right location. Thanks again. Warm Regards, Stacey

This seems to be the same person as Charles H. Rockwell (#69209206). Maybe you can ask for a merger of the two memorials?

Parents of Katherine Wenger Graff

I think that I have found the parents of Katherine Wenger Graff. Christian Wenger (#94166245) and his wife Mary Wenger-Groff (#128643274) are the likely parents. They are in Ragersville Cemetery, Tuscarawas County. Note that this Christian died in 1856 and thus matches your 1860 census info. His wife, Mary, remarried after his death.

Adams-Standing Rock
I'm actually not that surprised you couldn't find his grave. I've had similar problems with these Adam's in Standing Rock in the past.

But I sure do appreciate your taking the time and making the effort to locate him for me.
