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. :)

# 113332766 - Mary Ann Hargreaves
The marriage records for her 1st marriage list her maiden name as Werth and Watt. The later shows up in the death cert of some of her later children. She married Benjamin in 1866.

RE: Andrew Skvasik
Thank you for your reply and help. I'll try calling the cemetery. I was so hopeful that you had seen his headstone. My niece was there just a few weeks ago, she went to the office, and they can find no record of him. His DC does not have a plot #, etc. but I will keep trying. When I look at the DC I see an undotted and blurry 'i' on both Andrew and his wife's name, but the daughter's name is dotted. The entire certificate is rather difficult to read actually.

I looked up in an old directory where the family lived. It said 35 S Chestnut. When I approached that address, I saw what looked like a historical plaque. It read " On this spot in 1897 nothing happened" !!!!!

Are you also related to my Grandfather's Grandfather? I got my info from the records in my Great Aunt's trunk. I also visited Standing Rock.

RE: Szczerbackis
thanks Janice. I heard bought out Find-a-grave so since this is a duplicate of efforts since we have trees on these folks already and sometimes several of us in one family have trees on Ancestry and info from the necrology file (and more info given out than needs to be given on this find-a-grave site) I've asked to combine the two websites.

Hi Janice:
Maybe I just missed them but do you have a stone picture for Mary H. Benaszek Szczerbacki, John Szczerbacki and Anna Szczerbacki?
