Col Wm Chamberlain
Hello Pat,
I saw that this American hero was your 5th Ggrandfather. His father, Lewis Chamberlain,was my 5th Ggrandfather.
I am putting Wm Chamberlain into my virtual family cemetery and just wanted to say "Hi Cousin"!

My mother's family name was Minor and her Great grandfather, Stephen Leslie Minor married MaryAnn Chamberlain, which is how we became connected to the Chamberlain family.

We are stuck at a block wall and haven't been able to find Stephen Leslie Minor's parents.

All the best,
Linda Farrell-Hooker Lathrop

RE: Lorraine Reetz
No I do not have anyone their. Lorraine's husband Phil is a cousin. He is in the Sterling Cemetery. Lorraine is Philips first spouse. I was born in West Branch but live in Big Rapids now. I was in West Branch hunting last week and did some Find a Grave photos at Sterling and found Phillips grave next to his mother and father. Phillips mother Erna Pekrul is a daughter of my uncle Gustav Pekrul who is a brother to my grandfather Fritz Pekrul.

A question on Jonathon A. Clayton or any other headstones that do not know the date of birth but have the age of death.
B. Unknown
D. March 15, 1858 inscription died at 36 years of age. Can you estimate the date of birth by subtracting 1858 -36 years or do you need actual proof of headstone inscription?

RE: Bradfords at Kinyon
Thank you, Pat. I am fairly "new" to Find A Grave and I don't know what you are asking me. The only way I know how to make a request is through the person that has created that particular site, ie: you.

If there is another way, please advise me.

Thanks again...Kathlene Bradford-Marks

Ammond Family
Hi Pat, I just requested 8 transfers for the Ammond family. They're all in my husband's family line. If they're your family I'll understand you not transferring them. In that case can I send you all the info I have on the family to be included in the memorials? I would love to get them all connected. Thank you so much for all the hard work of photographing the headstones. You've helped me greatly in my genealogy pursuit.

William W Washburn
In recent weeks I was photographing headstones in section J of the Clinton Grove cemetery with the intention of adding them to this website for others researching those families. In this group, I have a photo of your William W Washburn's headstone and wondered if you would like me to add it to your memorial.

RE: Campbell's Hill FAG
If someone could take the photos now and not use the ones posted by the Rose City Genealogical Society it would be fine to post them.

The requested URL /-midgemaw/cemeteries_wbtwp.htm was not found on this server.

Wouldn't it be easier to just post a photo of the tombstone?

Genealogist's Christmas Eve
'Twas the night before Christmas
When all through the house
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even my spouse.

The dining room table with clutter was spread
With pedigree charts and with letters which said...
"Too bad about the data for which you wrote;
Sank in a storm on an ill-fated boat."

Stacks of old copies of wills and such
Were proof that my work had become too much.
Our children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugarplums danced in their heads.

And I at my table was ready to drop
From work on my album with photos to crop.
Christmas was here, and such was my lot
That presents and goodies and toys I'd forgot.

Had I not been busy with grandparents' wills,
I'd not have forgotten to shop for such thrills,
While others bought gifts to bring Christmas cheers,
I'd spent time researching those birth dates and years.

While I was thus musing about my sad plight,
A strange noise on the lawn gave me such a great fright.
Away to the window I flew in a flash,
Tore open the drapes and yanked up the sash.

When what with my wondering eyes should appear,
But an overstuffed sleigh and eight small reindeer.
Up to the house top the reindeer they flew,
With a sleigh full of toys and 'ole Santa Claus, too.

And then in a twinkle, I heard on the roof
The prancing and pawing of thirty-two hoofs.
As I drew in my head, and bumped it on the sash,
Down the cold chimney fell Santa--KER-RASH!

"Dear" Santa had come from the roof in a wreck,
And tracked soot on the carpet, (I could wring his short neck!)
Spotting my face, good 'ole Santa could see
I had no Christmas spirit you'd have to agree.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work
And filled all the stockings, (I felt like a jerk).
Here was Santa, who'd brought us such gladness and joy:
When I'd been too busy for even one toy.

He spied my research on the table all spread
"A genealogist!" He cried! (My face was all red!)
"Tonight I've met many like you," Santa grinned,
As he pulled from his sack a large book he had penned.

I gazed with amusement--the cover it read
Genealogy Lines for Which You Have Plead.
"I know what it's like as a genealogy bug."
He said as he gave me a great Santa hug.

"While the elves make the sleighful of toys I now carry,
I do some research in the North Pole Library!
A special treat I am thus able to bring,
To genealogy folk who can't find a thing."

"Now off you go to your bed for a rest,
I'll clean up the house from this genealogy mess."
As I climbed up the stairs full of gladness and glee,
I looked back at Santa who'd brought much to me.

While settling in bed, I heard Santa's clear whistle,
To his team, which then rose like the down of a thistle.
And I heard him exclaim as he flew out of sight,
"Family history is Fun! Merry Christmas! Goodnight!"

Sorry, I don't know anyone by the name, Theodur Zekman. Your Find A Grave email to me must be meant for someone else.

RE: Rosehill Cemetery
Hi Pat,

First off, thank you for taking the time and effort to help me get a photo of my kin's gravestones at Rosehill. I will contact them and see what I can do. I'm sure our kin would love to have their gravestones memorialized instead of eroding away. You are doing a great service.

Sincerely, LSP

Thank you for trying to help. I will ask the cemetery. I don't know why some of them are so difficult to deal with! - Elsetta

I can't believe how uncooperative they are being with these photo requests. I am going to call them this week and also make a call to the company that manages the cemetery.
