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. :)

RE: Gladys Fry
Thanks Gladys, I expanded the head stone to get the husband's names and what ever else I could read. He was Kenneth E. Fry, Jr., month/day un-readable but his birth year was 1934 and the marriage entry says May 31, 1958.

Ezra Quier
Hi Janice, Thanks for adding all the info about Ezra Quier. Sorry the edit was sent before I could correct the submission last night. I thought I'd caught it. FYI, In the Portage Co. tax lists, Deerfield Twp. became Atwater Twp. between the 1814 and 1816 taxes, so his birth would have been in Atwater. I'm researching Enos Davis, John Hutton and William Marshall in Atwater so if you have anything on them, I'd greatly appreciate sharing. Also, thanks for all you're doing on Find-a-grave. Best, Jackie R.

RE: Gladys Fry
U let me know if I can ever help you. Back abt. 1992 I started a group of Imler Bone Chasers, never had the idea what I was getting into---the group grew to abt. 425 members in the next 10 years, but due to death and aging several have gone on. The group has stabilized at abt. 150, goes up as new folks join and drops again for reasons above. We are in all the lower 48, the two W. Prov. of Canada and S.E. Germany and Switzerland (they are our European Bone Chasers)--a GEDCOM is abt. 260 Mb now and growing, takes about 1-2 hours to down load and the name count is approaching 280,000 in the file--all were hand entered by me from data provided by others. We are predominately in the five county area of Blair, Bedford, Cambria, Somerset and Huntingdon with others scattered out in other Pa. Counties and Central and East. Ohio.

RE: Gladys Fry
I understand your reasoning, but I have found out often if there are no descendant children then the last to go is never reflected upon the head stone and the departure date goes blank. Do I know if he Husband, Mr. Fry has gone on---No, but if I had his first name, and his D.O.B. as shown on the Head Stone I would query S. S. records and a couple of other items and find out. Our genealogy group is private and we do not publish our work outside of the group---so, if you ever find out the First Name and his D.O.B. I would be grateful. For your info our group of 425 members have at least one Family Line that we share, sometimes more than one and that is Imler and we are related to Gladys Marie (Keefer) Fry as well as about 15,000 other Fry Folks. So, you can see our interest.

RE: Question on info
Thank you. I thought I had checked there but I must have missed it. I did have the census records but not the full death record. Again thank you for your kind reply.

Question on info
I was just wondering where you were able to obtain information not stated on the headstone? Specifically a double middle initial and a full birth-date for Ernst Klein. Here is the link: . He is my ancestor and there are many many Ernst's but the O R in the middle has been puzzling. I do believe he is a match as the wife and son match but as much info as possible will help because I am not able to get past him in the family tree on his dads side. Thank you.
