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 in mid-2015 I completed a multi-year full sweep of that cemetery (photos of each stone... although it is always possible I missed a few.) 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. :)

The only cemetery listed in South Euclid is Coyahoga County, I do not find a cemetery in South Euclid.

Find A Grave contributor Janice has made a suggestion to you regarding your Find A Grave memorial for Marjorie Day.

Their suggestion:
Hi. This memorial has been added to the wrong cemetery. This is St. John's in Garfield Heights, not St. John's in South Euclid. I'd suggest you go ahead and shift to the St. John's in South Euclid. Thanks!

Walrath Family
Thank you so much for creating a memorial for my great great great grandparents Rev Frederick Walrath and Catherine Angish Walrath. I am in the process of linking their children to them(the ones that I know). My great great grandfather was Clifford Frederick Walrath ( 7 Sep 1841 - 28 Jul 1897), their youngest son and child. He is buried at Woodlawn (I have 2 obits for him). He is not listed in their data base and I tried to contact the cemetery to correct it but got no reply. The Frederick that is now listed as their son is incorrect. Could you help me to change the information? My tree on Ancestry is Stone-Kallam Family tree. I have documentation if you need to see it. Thank you for any help you can give me.

Thanks for the update on his parents. Are you related to him? I am related through Gertrude, his wife. Would love to know more about him if you have information.

Adding your photo to another memorial
Hi, Janice

You added a gravestone photo to the memorial for Rudolph Hunziker, whose wife, Frieda, is also listed on the stone.

Frieda (nee Betz) was remarried after Rudolph's death to Claude S. Bennett, but she was buried with Rudolph under the name Hunziker. Frieda & Claude were married in 1950 and he died in 1953. It appears that Claude's family thought that her maiden name was Hunziker. Her memorial lists her name as Frieda (Hunziker) Bennett

I have submitted edits for Frieda's memorial, but wanted to ask if you would please add your photo of the gravestone to her memorial. Frieda Cora (Betz) Hunziker Bennett was born March 2, 1884 in Cleveland OH and died July 9, 1971 in Florida.

Thank you!
All the best,

Samuel S. Prior 7775430 duplicate
Janice, Thank you for bringing this to my attention. This error is only 12 years old! I actually have ca.45 memorials that are duplicates. Years ago when I entered these memorials, I had read that Northampton Cemetery was AKA Harrington Cemetery not knowing that Northampton Harrington Cemetery & Northampton (Center) Cemetery were not a single cemetery. Only today did I find that they are 1.8 miles away from each other. Sadly, the Harrington families are in my family tree. I hate to lose management of them. I will try to contact those that followed my lead & added info, picture or comments to those I have entered in the wrong (Northampton) cemetery. I will wait a week or two before I delete my entries so people can move their stuff (info, pics & comments) to Harrington Cemetery. I am very sorry for the confusion. Sincerely, Patty
