What a surprise to see my great-grandfather #37106304, in your Virtual Cemetery for Ingham Co., MI Civil War soldiers. I hope you enjoyed reading about his life and family and the photos.

I am interested in your collection of photos. Do you have a website for viewing?

Watts and Rogers
Thank you for transferring Parmenus Watts to me, and thanks also for linking Joseph D. Rogers with his wife Elcina. I'll probably be asking for some more transfers shortly for Watts and Marshall family members in Unadilla, but I wont ask for transfers for Palmer family members (except Janette (Palmer) Watts) since you are a descendant. I do have an interesting description of Benajah Palmer that I'll send by email shortly, and you can use it if you want. Finally I have a cabinet card I'll send to you - I bought an antique picture frame for cabinet cards and it was being used as the example. Its of a little girl and her name is on the back, but since the name likely changed when she grew up and got married, I haven't been able to find her on this site, otherwise I would have posted it on her memorial page. I enquire about an address to send it to when I email you next - don't worry about paying me shipping for one cabinet card- your help on this site is enough payment. Thanks again.

Kellogg Photograph

I just found your post of the photo of Giles and Rebecca Kellogg. I'm thrilled! I have two photos in my family collection that I have presumed was them, but now seeing your image, it is confirmed.

If you ever decide to part with it, please let me have a crack at it!

Thanks again for helping me make a positive ID.

Watts Palmer families
I'm a descendent of Janette (Palmer) Watts. I noticed in the bio section it says she was married to "W.B. Watts." Actually she was married to John Lyle Watts. I've posted pictures of her and her mother Sarah (Griffen) Palmer that might interest you. They've been passed down through the family - Janette is my 4th great-grandmother.
If your a descendant of the Palmers then were distant cousins. Adam Sweet

Thanks Randy for posting the picture of Gertrude Bohnet. She was a distant relative. Her great-great grandfather, Samuel B. Wessels, and my great-great-great grandmother, Dorcas Wessels West, were brother and sister.

Thanks again.

FMG Melton Civil War Letter
I saw this letter posted to my Great Great Great Grandfathers find a grave memorial. I think I made a bid on this letter and lost. If you still have it, I would love a copy so I could read the whole letter.
Thank you for posting.
An excited Great Great Great grandaughter.

Robert Brown
Randy, Thanks for the tip on the eBay item! I went ahead and purchased it. I will have to do some further investigation as Robert was already in Eagle by the 1870 Census, and the document describes Robert as someone from New York.

Daniel Spencer Farnum
I believe his date of birth is 3 March 1823. He is my husband's grgr grandfather. He has a sister born in 1819 and a brother born in 1820, so that would lead me to believe the date is correct. I got it from old family records. His second wife's name is Elizabeth Rogers Booher. Thanks for the work you do. Barbara Fleming

You asked me if I saw your email about Mary and her husband. Yes I did and your comments led me to explore a little more about them. Look at #5473891 & 9528098.... Some years ago I went to a museum in Sacramento, CA or San Antonio, TX dedicated to the circus and saw pictures of the midgets that PT Barnum put in his shows with a minature stage coach for them. At the time I did not realize who they were.

RE: Find A Grave Memorial # 8663938
It's possible..I did this family tree for a friend last year. Really had forgotten the name! Should be fairly easy to research him.
All the best..

Addie Howlett
Thanks so much Randy for posting the picture of Addie on her memorial.

Her father and my great great Grandmother Eliza Howlett Akay were brother and sister. Eliza died when my Great Grandmother West (Melvina) was small and she was raised by the Howlett family in the Waterloo area.

I have so very few pictures of my family and am so thankful for any you have.

Thanks again,
Connie West Stewart

RE: John's photo found! #83438132
WOW ! Thank you so much! Where did this photo come from? how did you happen to find it? Are you related somehow?

You just made my day and I am sure when I show it to a couple other family history nuts, it will make theirs as well...

Hi Randy,
Regarding the grave of Pvt Samuel Berry, mem #50971346, interred in Summerfield Cem., Monroe County, MI, I got his military record from
Berry was born July 24, 1844, enlisted in the 121st Ohio Infantry, Co. B, August 18, 1862. Discharged June 8, 1865. Died November 8, 1901.

If you are not registered on the above website, why not consider it so you can submit the many Civil War graves onto it. Sometimes the data base already has it, sometimes not.

Those initials stand for Sons of Veterans of Civil War Data Base. Their office is in Rhode Island and it has congressional funding. I've submitted over 100, I don't get paid but since I am a "Cold War" vet, I get satisfaction in doing this.

We share common ancestors!
I've found your name on several memorials of my family. I believe we share the Cadys and the Hunts as common ancestors!

I am attempting to sort out the family of Lydia's parents, William and Lydia (Moore) Reed. A stopping block has been a son, John S., who married Sarah Eatinger. John has conflicting information on the census and Rootsweb. Do you have any details for John?

RE:George Webb
Hi Randy, Would you happeen to know the name of the DVD that the Mason Historical has for sale, I inquired about it, & the were not sure, said maybe "The Mason by the Sycamore"? Does that sound familiar?

I sure appreciate your help and hard work. I'm just trying to find all of the dislocated historical threads of my family. I've been doing this since the mid-60's so there's not much left to find, but there are so many more tools then back when I was in high school. then I just had books and when the Michigan State Library had no more I was done researching.
Thanks so much for doing so much work. Paul
