Thanks for the picture. The published obituary was inaccurate. I will add the original accurate one following the funeral on Friday. Kayleen

RE: Lamont Morris Knapp
Hi Bonnie -- I believe the obit is incorrect. Lamont was married to Dora Bette Rogers, sister of my great-grandfather, Wm Henry Rogers. The 1870 and 1880 federal censuses show Lamont as the son of Henry and Rhoda Knapp. His marriage certificate from 1891 also lists his parents as Henry Knapp and Rhoda Hyde. However, there was an Esther Knapp. She was Lamont's paternal grandmother, and was married either to a Charles F or Henry Knapp. So, Lamont may have had both a father and grandfather named Henry. Please let me know if you find anything different! Linda

Charles J. Griffing
I noticed you left memorial flowers for Charles J. Griffing 1844-1919 who died in the State Hospital at Kalamazoo Michigan.
How are you related to this family?
I descend from Daniel Murray who was brother to John C. Murray who was Elizabeth Rosamond Murray Griffing's father. (Charles J. Griffing's mother)

I have a lot of info on this family that I am sorting thru and wondered if you would be interested in any of it.

Thanks very much for your help on this Bonnie. I'm glad we could, together, make her memorial more personalized and accurate. It's been a pleasure.

RE: Mary Barton
I believe I have made the necessary changes to her memorial based on what is contained in her death certificate. I also added a note to her bio and notes to each of her parents bios and changes to her mothers fields based on this information. I thank you very much for your time and efforts. Would you please be so kind as to verify the accuracy of my entries before deleting the d/c? I also now have an uncorrupted copy of it on my computer. Thank you again.

Thank you, I will do my best to take care of that tomorrow. It's been another busy week with doctors, including today. Too difficult to do this stuff on my cell phone, fonts too small.

RE: Mary Barton
Sorry to be so long in responding, I've been ill this week. If it works best for you to do it that way, I would appreciate it very much. Don't know how that file got corrupted to begin with, I was originally able to open it when I saved it to my computer. Thanks very much for your help with this, Bonnie, and I'm sorry again to take so much of your time.

I see the death cert. you are referring you think it is wrong? Sometimes a person is called by his middle name for some reason or another, so I assumed that this was the case for John Frederick. Do you think that is wrong? I am researching this line for my best buddy and her father. Actually I am on a trip researching right now.

We have to remember, so many came to America from all aver the world, I try to make it as complete as possible for our foreign visitors can understand as much as possible to locate lost ancestors and kin.

RE: Donald G. Barker
No problem. Thank you for the correction. Now I see that Marilynn Johnson did have a page for him. Can they be merged? Yours is more complete.

Donald G. Barker/Danby
On more than one occasion, I looked for my uncle's Find-A-Grave page at Danby Cemetery. I couldn't find one and thought about making one. Tonight I ran across it by accident. His surname is Barker--not Baker. His last name as well as that of his parents and sons should be changed in the obituary. Thank you.

Mabie/Gardner marriage
Thanks, Bonnie. I sent an edit request earlier this week. Hopefully it will be done. I can't figure why the person could not see that Eva was Donald's dad's first wife, & that she died almost 18 years before Donald was born.

Mabie marriage
Thanks, Bonnie. Now if we can just get the manager of Donald Mabie's memorial to unlink him & Eva as husband & wife, the Gardners will be good. Steve.

Hi Bonnie,

I was just looking at Emery's memorial (83422759) in Highland Park Cemetery, Ionia. There is a slight problem, though. The tombstone photo attached to the memorial is from his half-brother, Clinton. Thanks. Jim Moses

Harriet O'Neill add
Forgot to mention that Mr Place died sometime between 1875 and 08 Feb 1879 which is when she married Mr O'Neill. So...kinda coincidental that her father and first husband died w/in a few years of each other and both graves are "missing"

Added by Cherie_in_OC on Jan 13, 2016 2:42 PM

Harriet Stearnes Place O'Neill
You are FAST! I went back to correct her father (I had the wrong William who was probably her brother) and you already connected. LOL! The obituary of her mother, Delilah, said William had passed about 26 years earlier, which would be around 1879. Can't find him, but also can't find husband of her first husband, Andrew Porter Place. Her dad and Mr Place should also be buried at Highland as Mr Place's brother (?) at one time owned Highland. Maybe their grave was one of the ones washed down the hillside into the creek years ago...

Sarah DiDio
Bignell History
Hello Bonnie,

My name is Sarah and Rosina (Dickinson) Bignell is my 4 times great-grandmother. I would be very interested in any other family history, documents, or photos that you have for Bignell ancestors. I only know information up to James Ross Bignell (my great-great grandfather) and then grave information I just found for Charles W. Bignell, George Bignell, and Rosina Dickinson on this site.

Also, do you know anything about Rosina's parents?I think her mother's name, Mahetable, is a Puritan name.

I appreciate any information you can share with me!
