RE: Jeffery James Tuttle photo
It is my pleasure to take photo's for you. I enjoy it very much. I too grew up in Michigan. I tried to go back in 2010, but the old adage "You can't go home again!" is very true. Everything that I knew and loved had changed. Again it is my pleasure to have taken you friend and loved one's memorial for you. Thank you so much for you very kind words. Pat

My name is Laveau. I am wondering if it would be ok if I added a bio and photo for Monseignor Prefontaine. This is kind of a sentimental thing to me because I live in the area where he used to have his main ministry. Also {as insane as this may sound to you} I have clairvoyant abilities and I believe that I have seen Monseignor Preontaine. Anyway. If it's alright I hope that adding a bio for him is ok. If so how do I do that??.

RE: Dorothy Keyser Handley

Hi Larry,

Yes, genealogy IS fun in it's own way. It's lLike a big puzzle trying to fit the right pieces together. And it is also very satisfying to virtually link family together again. I love being able to create links to my family members and to also assist others in doing the same. In sort of a morbid sense, it seems as though I am helping to reunite family members who have been separated by death to the kinship they shared in life. We will all enter that realm, and I think each of us would want to be remembered by somebody. I want to help others remember.

If you are interested, there are other Keyser burials at Dock's Creek. If you need more information or photos, just let me know. :)

Hi Larry,
Check out the memorial for the above named at Thetford Township Cemetery in Genesee County, Mich. I know you have interest as she is daughter of Wm. Capling and Barbara Wildfong. Parentage verified from her death certificate.

Added by paulswife on Oct 01, 2011 4:48 PM

Just wondering if you were related to the Wildfongs buried in Oakwood Cem. in Genesee Co., Mich. that I posted on here.

Hi Larry,
You are welcome for the photo. I am pleased you were so happy to see her headstone. Did you notice their were two daughters buried beside her? I added their memorials and linked them to their mom and dad.
I got looking around, because I knew I had seen the Capling name when I first started this, at the Gravelridge Cemetery.
Do you know if William's parents, John Capling and Jane Booker of England, stayed in England or immigrated?
Thank you for your enthusiastic message. Glad you appreciated the photo. Lorna:)

Hi Larry:
Thanks so much for visiting my Mom and my four-legged friends. You have no idea how much your visits mean to me. I, like most people, don't want their family members forgotten...

I hope now you see why I fell in love with little sweet Eve. That face!! She was a ray of sunshine. My pets have meant a great deal to me through the years. I know you and your family feel the same way.

Thanks for making my day...

I'd like to add you as a friend. Please do the same for me.

RE: Sunshine Eve Caplin

You're so welcome. When I saw Eve's little face in that photo, I absolutely fell in love. I know it's a memorial and everything, but I could see how much she meant to you and your family.

You're so right about needing a place to remember & share our pets with one another. Animals are such a blessing from God. They touch our lives for a while and then they must leave. They leave their mark on us forever. I have several of my pets listed under my furry friends if you want to take a look sometime. I grew up with collies, so Eve really touched my heart.

Have a good weekend, Larry.

Oops... left out some....
Here's another article for Rachel Jane Rankin Corey.

Rachel Jane Rankin Corey, widow of Hugh M. Corey, was born at Berkley Spring, West Virginia, March 27, 1850, and departed this life Jan. 25, 1926, at the home of her daughter, Mary J. Corey, at 614 North Franklin St., Saginaw, aged 75 years, 10 months and 29 days. Mr. and Mrs. Corey were married at Martinsburg, West Virginia, Dec. 15, 1865, and after a few years residence there moved to Ohio. Later they came to Michigan, living for a short time in Chesaning and also in Clare county. They came to Gladwin in 1880 where Mrs. Corey lived until a few years ago, when she moved with her daughter to Saginaw. Mr. Corey preceded Mrs Corey in death 36 years ago. She has been in poor health the last 26 years, but has been a patient sufferer. She was a member of the Gladwin M. E. church for 39 years, but two years ago she transferred her membership to Jefferson avenue M. E. church of Saginaw.
Those left to mourn her loss are three sons and five daughters: Mrs. Reuben Corey of Detroit, Mich., Mrs. Adolph Hunt and Mrs Elmer Dennings of Gladwin, Reuben Corey, Timothy Corey, Mary Corey, Mrs. Alfred Francis of Saginaw and Freeman Corey of Petosky. She also leaves one sister of Flint, Michigan, besides grandchildren and other relatives and many friends. The body was brought to Gladwin for burial on the family lot in Highland cemetery. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Stanley Thayer at the M. E. church, Gladwin, Thursday afternoon, Jan. 28, 1926. Gladwin County Record dated 02-11/1926 Column - 4 Page - 4

Re: HUGH M. COREY (29 MARCH 1846 - 18 APRIL 1890)
Was wondering if you need his Obituary?




During the noon hour Monday a terrible explosion took place at the mill of L. Ozmun in Tobacco township, about 10 miles south of this place, and H. M. Corey, engineer and sawyer, and his son Aaron, the fireman, were instantly killed. The other hands employed in the mill had fortunately not arrived from dinner. Mr. Corey's daugter, Mary, 12 years old, and sons Reuben, 9 years, and Timmie, 7 years, bright appearing children, had brought dinner to the mill for Mr. Corey and Aaron, who had just finished eating, and Mary was returning to the residence of the family, a half mile distance, when she heard the report, which came with a thud similiar to a large tree falling.
The boys had lingered, and with Jimmie Fairchild, a playmate, 14 years old, were standing in the road near the mill, and were hit by flying missiles, but not seriously injured. The dome of the boiler was thrown some 25 rods, and brick and missiles were scattered the same distance about the mill. Windows in the school house, several rods away, were broken, and plaster jarred off, and windows in dwellings in the vicinity were also broken. School was not in session or more lives would have been lost.
After the explosion the boys hastened to the scene, and were soon reinforced by neighbors. Mr. Corey was found near a saw which lie was filing a gash in the back of his head, and breathed a few times before he expired. Aaron was bruised and burned beyond recognition, and no doubt was killed on the spot. The bodies were taken in charge, and the next day brought to the county seat by friends, the G.A.R., of which Mr. Corey was a member, taking an active part in looking after the remains, and after the bereaved family.
The direct cause of the explosion is unknown. One theory is that the boiler, which did not sit level, had been allowed to get dry in one end, while in the other seemingly having plenty of water. The bodies were viewed by many people at the undertaking rooms, and expressions of sympathy and sorrow were heard on all hands. Funeral services were held at the M. E. church yesterday afternoon. Rev. M. Stephens preaching impressively form II Timothy iv-7. Members of Noble post G.A.R. did honor to the remains, attending in uniform, and the church was filled by people form the village and surrounding country.


Hugh M. Corey was born at Duck Lake, Muskegon county, March 29, 1846, and when two years old was taken to Ohio, where he was reared in the family of his grandparents. When 15 years of age he enlisted with the 123rd regiment of Ohio volunteers, and served form Sep. 24, 1862, until July 20, 1865. He was married at Martinsburgh, Va., Dec. 12, 1864, to Rachel Rankin, who survives him as his widow, with nine children, the youngest seven months old, and the eldest Anna, married 23 years old. After his discharge from the army they lived in Ohio five years and then removed to Michigan, residing at Chesaning a short time, and from there removing to Farwel, remaining until about 10 years ago, when they first removed to Gladwin, and have since resided in the village and county, Mr. Corey having been employed during the time in and about sawmills, being a practical sawyer and engineer.
Mr. C. was a staunch upholder of his principles. At the time of his death he was a member of the M. E. church, and was an earnest worker in the cause of religion. In his early years he had experienced the evils of intemperance, but changed his course, and remained a faithful and zealous worker for temperance until his death, having been an active member of the I.O.G.T. for many years. Besides he was a leading member of the G.A.R. post at this place. His sudden death falls heavily upon his bereaved family, who have the heartfelt sympathy of many friends, of whom he had respect and esteem.
Aaron was born in Ohio, and was in his 20th year. He was subject to fits, and was not a proper person to work about a mill, although he had been around mills more or less all his life. A frightful death for himself and father were no doubt the cost of his lack of knowledge in regard to his work. The scarred and bruised appearance of the poor boy as he rested in the arms of deth was pitiful. Gladwin County Record dated 04-18/1890 Column - 4 Page - 5
