RE: Geertman family
Thank you! I was not sure if you were also related to the Geertman's. Thanks for putting them in as I did not know where they were buried.

Thank You
Thank you very much for taking the time out of what I am sure is a busy day and getting the picture of Bruce Randall. It is amazing when you start doing Ancestry stuff how many cousins are out there that you never knew about! Thanks again.

Smith's of Alpine
Thanks for the info on G.A.R., as well as obliseks. Yeah, so I think you're right about the marker just being in the wrong place. Franklin would have been just 14 when the war started and Alfred signed up. I suppose he could have joined later at 17 or 18, but I've found no records to support that yet.

The only thing I'm missing is a pic of Alfred's individual grave. I'm thinking you just forgot to upload that one.

Again, thank you so much.

Smith graves in Kent
Thank you so much, Jeff. Great pics! I do have a couple of questions that you may or may not know the answers to. I see what looks like a veteran's marker (star) next to F. Deforest Smith's grave. It has the dates of the civil war. At the top, it says G.A.R. Any idea what that stands for? What's weird is that I know that his father, Alfred Deforest Smith, served in the civil war, but I don't have any record of Franklin Deforest Smith serving. Either the marker is on the wrong grave or they both served and I just didn't know it. More research!!

Also, I see that Ann is on the bottom of Alfred's stone, but there there is a seperate marker for her too. Almost looks like 2 people, rather than 1, but the dates are the same. Unusual that there would be a 2nd marker, I think.

Alfred's stone was impressive. That was really cool to see.

Thanks so much!!!! Happy New Year to you.

Croninger Headstone Photos
Jeff, thank you for finding a third Croninger while taking the two other Croninger photos. I always try to let the photographers know that if they see additional same-surname headstones, to go ahead and take the photo. I can always add a new memorial. I can't know where every dearly departed is ... epecially those who have passed away quite recently. Thanks again!

RE: Rose & Lewis Langworthy

Yes, Lewis Langworthy married Florence M. Burch on 18 Apr 1911 in Grand Rapids, Kent, Michigan. If you use familysearch, you can see that marriage record here:

I haven't found the marriage record for Rose and Lewis, but estimate that it was in the late 1930s.

Thanks for taking the time to add the photo of Florence's headstone.

Dear Jeff,
Thank you so much for fulfilling these photo requests. You're about an hour away and with the hectic times this week, knowing the white stuff is going to fly soon..I hoped that some kind soul could pick them up before the "season comes to a close" in our area. Thank you ever so much! Happy Holidays to you and the family...

Rose & Lewis Langworthy

Thank you very much for taking the time to photograph the headstones of Rose & Lewis Langworthy for me. Rose was my wife's gt-grandmother, and it is only recently that I found information that led to her burial site, and that of her third husband, Lewis.

Your efforts are much appreciated by me and the rest of our family.

Best regards,

Paul North
