RE: Sours @ Holy Sep
No further info on Bertha. When St Joe's closed, families were given the option to re-inter relatives themselves (as the Sours did). The others were removed by the city to Holy Sep. There is a memorial to the "others".

Sours @ Holy Sep
Are ya ready? Here's what I get. I added the pics for Dennis and Eleanor. They were originally buried in St. Joseph's cemetery and moved to Holy Sep on 4/20/1872. Bertha Sours was also moved from St. Joe's on that date but her grave is unmarked. Dennis and Eleanor are actually buried in section 9 East Lot 197. Bertha is in section 10 East. Also buried with Dennis and Eleanor are Albert Sours (1877-1946), Sebestian Sours (1839-1902), Sophia Sours (1847-1920), Frederick Heberger (d.6/30/1874), Caroline Heberger (d.7/7/1874), and Edward C Sours (d.9/7/1893) son of Sebestian and Sophia. I have created memorials and/or added pics as needed for everyone.

James Norman
I have photographed the plot in Hillside Cemetery, Plainwell, Mich. where James Norman is supposed to have been buried. The stone that is shown in the picture is for Francis Norman which is shown on that memorial page. It seems there is the possibility that James is buried there next to Francis without a headstone. You might want to make note of that on James' memorial page so people will not think the stone shown is his.
I notified the person requesting the photo of my actions.
I think this is the best that can be done if the records say he is there and Francis is there.

Burdett Harter
If you are interested...I found this tonite while searching once again for Burdett Harter. You can go to the link
He is listed as having the first initial J and whoever posted this online said his father's name is Daniel Harter, but when I looked at the document it says David Harter & mother listed as Ester J Earle. According to the (very blurry) document he died in July of 1899 in Plainfield Township, Kent County, Michigan.

RE: Lonie O. Harter
I can't find my Grandfather Oscar's brother Berdette Harter after the age of 3. I have a photo of a young man in uniform that I was told was Berdette, but I can't find him on a census or find a grave or anywhere??

Added by JoyceP on Jun 28, 2014 11:15 PM

RE: Lonie O. Harter
I'm not sure who you mean by "latter" ??
You have the info for David Alonzo Harter's first wife Esther Jane Earle. His second wife was Maryette Harter, I don't know where she is buried but I did find her death certificate online.
If you meant my Dad Lonie, my Mom is buried next to him in Southern Cemetery Central Lake.
Thank you for correcting my Dad's name :) Let me know if I can answer any other questions. Maybe you have more answers about my family than I do!! LOL

Lonie O. Harter
I would like to thank you for the work you have put into this project!
Lonie O. Harter was my father and his middle name was not Oscar...Just the letter O. I would appreciate it if you could correct the error on his Memorial page on Find a Grave. Thank you again.

Penny Lanterman-Rendich
Lanterman or Lauterman
Are you related to Johan Peter Lanterman who was married to Elizabeth Peterson Lanterman? I was searching Find a grave and came upon a message on Sophia Lanterman Brown's page which mentioned a family bible. I am new at this so I've jumped in with both feet and wondered if there is a Lanterman Family bible where that might be located.
Thank you for any help you can give me.

Homer Sampson
When we found the site for Homer Sampson the stone was 90% covered in dirt. We cleaned it up and were able to take the photo.

RE: Morrell Goodrich memorial transfer request
I'm sorry you feel that way. Virtual cemeteries do not allow me the opportunity to provide my contact information to a soldier's descendent (so that we can work together towards obtaining his military headstone). Only the manager of the soldier's memorial has the ability to put that information in the bio. In this case, a memorial in stone, not digital, is my goal, which may seem ironic, since I'm not his descendent.

Morrell Goodrich memorial transfer request
Hi Ralph,
I have recently asked you to transfer the memorial for Morrell Goodrich (at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Dexter, Michigan) to me and have had no reply. I would like to explain to you the purpose of my request. First of all, I am not a descendent of his. I am however, a researcher and historian for the Fourth Michigan Infantry, the regiment in which he served. I have asked for the transfer of his memorial so that I could use it to establish a connection with at least one of Morrell's living descendents.By doing so, his descendent and I could work together to obtain a military headstone for this soldier who currently has no stone at all.Additionally, I would also like to "round off" his bio by including some military service details that are currently missing from the memorial. I hope that you are willing to assist me in doing what is right for this veteran of the Civil War.
