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: Lillie Curry photo request
8-10-2016 Sorry, for being so late in getting back to you. No, I don't believe this was my Lillie. She was from Coatesville, PA. Thanks for trying.

Callie Coleman update
Thank you for tending Ms Colemans grave information, she is my youngest daughters great grandmother on her fathers side. I notice no mention of her family on her stone, not sure she ever married Hugh Mitchell, but she had a son named Bennie Lee Mitchell (Sr.) in 1915 who fathered Bennie Lee Mitchell Jr. in 1959. Sr. is dead as of 1991, Jr is still alive and living in Milwaukee, Wi. Any information you feel fit to add to Ms Colemans' grave would be appreciated.

Thank you so much for going out and getting my paternal grandparents photo. I never met my grandfather. He died 2 months before I was born.

Thanks for the photo, did you happen to get a close up, I assume it is one of the flat pics in the photo, but I could be wrong? Do you know if he shares a stone with someone else?

Thanks for any info.
