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: Bumphrey headstone
Thanks anyway. This is what I had found. I think the nature of the name is such that it probably has common roots,

Bumphrey headstone
I am researching Bumphrey family in UK. There must be a connection to the US Bumphrey family which so far had eluded me.
Any suggestions much appreciated

I did receive you request to post his memorial in entirety. Due to copyright reasons I usually summarize anything written after 1922. However, in this case I did include the 1950 news article transcription in its entirety - great article! Hope you don't mind. If you do please let me know and I will summarize it and incorporate it into the bio section.

Some obituaries that were published in 1922 or earlier are now in the public domain.

RE: Cora and Noah McArthur in Standing Rock
Although Noah is only my second cousin once removed, they apparently have no living decendants so you may transfer them if you like.

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!
