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.

There seems to be a duplicate of 2 different vincents, but with the same d.o.d., both at Calvary Cem. Can this be sorted out?

your pictures
I was looking at some of your pictures, If I could make suggestion, that I have found, unless it is an old headstone, try to take your picture straight on with headstone, if it is headstone laying on the ground, stand over top the headstone, if a standing headstone, bend down on one knee, so that you looking straight at the headstone, unless there is flowers that I like to get in the pictures, zoom in as much as you can, so that can read the headstone, If I ask for a picture, I went to be able to read the names and dates, and then when I get home, I have free photo software, that to crop the picture, so that I am not seeing half the cemetery behind the headstone, or lighten the picture so its not to dark, it takes a little more time but will make a better looking picture, come pair some of my pictures with yours.

Please remember this is not an insult, just a suggestion to help improve your pictures, when I first started taking pictures the they were the same way.

I asked for two pictures of two headstones of family a while back, I asked for a close up of the headstone's that were side by side in a small cemetery in southern Ohio it toke three months to get the pictures and they where not close ups, I can barely read the headstones of my third great grandmother, I was not happy, but what can you say it is a free picture.

I got home from working a cemetery one day, I was really wore out, when I got home and uploaded the pictures to my laptop, I found that I had found that I had taken 249 pictures, and just think we do all this for free.

I hope are having a very good and happy day,
Thank you Dennis
PS, as all was thank you for your help.

re: Mackay Siblings
Janice - could you please connect find a grave memorial # 119777390 for Catherine Maria Mackay Greenfield to her siblings in Standing Rock Cemetery? Her siblings are Margaret Orr Mackay Kelso (#79173232) and Florence Marion Mackay Kelso (#86514084). I've uploaded copies of their death certificates as validation.

Thank you. These are relatives of mine.

Use of your photo
I'm working on a manuscript of a family history and would like to include your photo for memorial 110119209 (Oscar Afeld). Would it be OK to include it? Thanks - David

RE: Norma Hostetler Green
Got the transfer and thank you again. Besides a mother in law, she was a dear friend and fellow graveyard researcher. She would have adored the attention of Find A Grave, but that was before her time. Thanks again. - Cathy

That would be great, her and her husband Dale Hostetler. That's all that we have there.
