RE: Horace O Bigelow grave pic
Hi Charlene,

Horace does have a beautiful stone. I also wanted to let you know there are names on the side and back of his stone. There are no memorials for these names. If you want to create them, I can add the photos or I can email you the photos to upload. Just let me know. The names are Mary E. Bigelow, Lizzie W. Bigelow, and the last one I can't completly make out....Zenu??? Bigelow. I have the dates on the stone for each of them as well.

RE: Frances Young transfer!
Yes, I have a lot of family buried there, all the up to my own biological father. My family has been in that area since the 1850s. My direct line will probably end there with my father and uncle though. My uncle has no children and my mom moved me from there almost 30 years ago. I live 1000 miles away and can't imagine moving back there. Frank has graciously transferred some memorials to me even on some that are not my direct line, but I know had no children to have a line of their own. I just always hate to ask for the transfer if I can just as easily add the pictures etc without "needing" the memorial. Your name seems familiar, so I may have told you a while back, but I found a "gold mine" of old pics, letters and journals that date back to the 1860s, 1888 and 1890 respectively in a chest that had to be my great grandparents that I found after my father passed. I may never get all the letters read as there are thousands and thousands. As I go through them, I try and contact peoples lines who might have been related to the people mentioned in the letters. I am also creating a spreadsheet of names on each so maybe one day, I can upload that so people can find it when they search names. I have a picture that is labeled "Bulmers" and I sure wish I knew who they were... I LOVE the picture! Not sure why, but I just really do. I'd love to share it with their ancestors! Best of luck to you, and thank you again!

RE: Ethel M Hawes and Jas. Peacock gravestone
You're very welcome. There was also a marker for a Ralph J Peacock nearby. I snapped a picture of it, but there doesn't seem to be a memorial page created for him yet. I would be happy to upload the picture if you want to create the memorial. Just let me know.

RE: Thos. Laycock and Oria Gibson
I believe Ora's name to truly be Oria. Her death certificate says Oria but Mary's says Ora, also Ora is what is on the stones.. I will have to change those when I get the chance.

The informant for Mary's death certificate was R.W. Menerey Jr. I'm wondering if she may have had a different birth name? I guess I cancelled my membership at the wrong time. lol! Now I'm curious but I don't have the resources. I'm almost tempted to start searching I local records.

I'm not related to any of the mentioned people but the connections just caught my attention. If I am able to find anything out I will certainty let you know.

Robert and Frances Menerey
I have posted a death certificate for Frances on her memorial.

I have a memorial for a Mary Menerey and, after some investigating, I believe she was adopted by the Menereys after her mother, Ora (Gibson) Laycock, passed away when she was only one month old. Mary passed away 6 months later. If you have any info on this I would love to hear it and make updates on the memorials I have.

So sorry to let you know that there are no headstones for either of them at Graafschap Cemetery. I will mark the memorials accordingly, but sorry there are no markers for either of them.

I edited Murray's parents but I see you put Kenneth as a McKenna. He was never adopted by Murray and so he was a Gillings son of Harlow Gillings and Carrie Churchill Gillings.

RE: Haynes graves
You know I saw the date difference when I took the photo. I'm really not sure what to make of it. I've seen a year or two difference between someones actual death date and a headstone marker, but not several years. I quickly tried to find a death record in the Barry County Clerk's on-line search with no luck for any Olive Haynes.

RE: Albert Carpency 1953-2011

Blessings for you taking the photo of Al's grave. We are in the process of getting the tombstone engraved as they will not allow us to put another grave marker on the site. We would be overjoyed to have the picture you took put on find a grave and Al Carpency's (1953-2011) memorial website. Thank you so much.

When I searched for the gravesites of H.A. Barrett and Azuba
I came across their Obituaries.

If you want the copies I can scan and forward them to you.

RE: Re: Pic of grave/Charlotte Nash
I just went there again. The "shadow" you mention is a large tree. I took a photo of a dry cleaned off marker and a wet washed marker. Neither are much better.
I will put the newer cleaned off photo on. The wet one makes the color pretty of the marker but the letters darker as well.

RE: Thos J Torango
Your welcome Charlene. I see you have requested photos of some other "Saucier" grave sites. Mary Saucier was the infant daughter of Joseph and Ann (Christe) Saucier, my mother's sister. I'd be surprised if there was a stone. There are 3 other infants buried there as well. Mary (Ringuette) Saucier is buried in an unmarked grave in the Joseph Rushlow plot. Joseph Saucier Sr. is buried in an unmarked grave back near the sexton's garage. These were very poor people. The elder Sauciers were dependent on their children and NEVER owned a home of their own. Joseph Saucier Sr. died at The Little Sisters of the Poor in Detroit. He suffered from what we now know as Alzheimer's.
