Hi Reena, my wife's mother was a Storey from Chippewa County and I am researching her family line. I have obituaries for both Lyla and James Storey if you would like them to add to your Find A Grave memorials.

Burt Lake
Hi, Reena,
I just re-read your bio. Could Burt Lake be near Burt, Michigan? That is near Saginaw and nearer to Birch Run, I believe. The parents of my best friend in high school (South Bend, IN), Rose Budd, came from Burt in the 1930's so that Mr. Budd could work at Bendix Products Company for Vincent Bendix. The Budds, C.E. and Kitty, maintained a farm near Burt across the road from Mr. Budd's brother. In high school and college (Michigan State), Rose and I often stayed at "the farm" with them on weekends. They are buried in Birch Run Cemetery. You see, we farmers never give up our roots!

Anna Jones, wife of Charles H. Butler
Hi, Reena,
I am still working at Poe. I have worked my way through the Millers, the Clendenins, and the Eberhards. Now I'm concentrating on the Butlers, which do tie into my family through the Youngs. I'm checking my Family Tree Maker program and my personal cemetery records made at Poe through the years against your records. You do good work! Thank you for entering in all this information. About Anna (Jones) Butler, though - I have 1891 as her date of death, from reading the stone: Charles H. Butler, 1818-1881, Anna, his wife, 1821-1891. I think someone has misread a 7 for a 9, which is easy to do if the stone is worn. I would just change the death date to 1891 - as you say, she appears in the 1880 US Census.

RE: Adding people
Thanks so much Reena!! Appreciate the help. Maybe someday we'll meet if you come home to visit :) Happy 4th of July. Hope you have a great weekend...

Thank You
Thanks for finding Sarah Robillard's gravesite for me and taking the picture. It's interesting to see that the death date says 1939, but everything I have says 1931. Did you happen to notice if her husband Israel was buried there as well?

Good morning Reenie :)

When you have time I have a few more to be linked. No need to transfer them unless you'd like to.

Children of the above names:

Walter Paul Wiklanski #71206349
Josephine E(Wiklanski)Warek #71204743

Who do you go through to add people from cemeteries that are not listed? Curious because there are alot at the St. Nich. Cemetery that are not on here :)

It was great meeting you :) Thanks again,

RE: Dick Rohr
Hi Reena ... No, I'm not. Apparently Dick's son sent messages to everyone in Dick's email account to inform people of his passing. I'm not exactly sure what your friend is looking for. Does she want to visit Dick's memorial? I'm sorry. I'm a little dense today.

RE: Kellogg pictures
Thank you we would be honored to caretake their memorial, it's sweet of you to think of it. I don't think unless you're from Wisconsin that we're the right Schultz family, that and we've only been here about 10 years, I grew up in California. But if you're from around here in the last 10 years it's a possibility. :-) Wouldn't that be cool.

Lechowicz Family
Hello Reena...

I seen you had created a few memorials in my Lechowicz family and would like to have them connected if you wouldn't mind.

John T Lechwoicz #61159679 is the son of my GGpa Matthew Lechowicz #66112429 and my GGma Agnes Lechowicz #66112454

Also John needs to be linked to his wife Anna Lechowicz #661159756

As I get further through my tree I may have more to link. I would really appreciate it!! Thank you so much...

Thank you so much for the pictures. May we use them in our family tree? We will happily cite both you and Find A Grave as our source, we believe it's the right thing to do. May we also use the information you posted on their memorial pages - it would add so much to the records. Thank again for the pictures, and for considering our request. S.

Thank you for the transfers of my great-aunt and uncle, and for the work that went into setting them up in the first place. I'll be adding bios soon for both. :)

Have a lovely day,

RE: Gladys Viola Miller & Amos Clad Youngs
Thank you, Reena. Our family at Poe includes Miller, Young(s), Clendenin and Eberhard/Everhart. I have added the parents of both Gladys and Amos so far, but I have been working on the Miller family since the 1950's and I have a LOT of people to add to Poe, using the info in my Family Tree Maker program. I am excited that all of you got started on this cemetery!
I belong to the Miller branch that is buried at Constantine: ggr, John Sherman; gr, Clyde Eli; fr Galen. Everyone else is at Poe!

Gladys Viola Miller & Amos Clad Youngs
Hi, Reena,
I have been working on my extensive Miller family at Poe Cemetery, Newberg Township, Cass County, MI. I see that you have already recorded Gladys Viola (Miller) and Amos Clad Youngs. Gladys is my Grandfather Miller's 1st cousin. I have additional information - her parents and grandparents are in Poe Cemetery also. Would you like me to send you their numbers so you can link Gladys in with them, or would you rather transfer her to me? Are you related to her or to Amos Clad Youngs? Thank you for making this record. I appreciate it!

Hi Reena. No I really didn't want to take over. I have no idea what I am doing. I only stumbled upon this last night. Just thought it would be ok to change Grandma's birthday. Thank you for all you do on this site. You have been doing a great job. I don't know what to do when I get them. Sincerely Crystal

Arthur and Martha AMES
Hi Reena,
Thank you for creating the memorials for the Ames. I have information on his parent's resting place, also in Chippewa but a different cemetery. Mother Mary C Brindley Ames is 86865932 and father Thomas G. Ames is 86866479. They are at Bethel. If you would please connect them, I'd appreciate it. They are son and dau-in-law of a cousin, in my family.
I would manage the memorial if you prefer to transfer to me.
Thanks so much again,
Barbara Hahn

I see you added him to the Briley Township Cemetery. Record added: Aug 30, 2012 - Find A Grave Memorial# 96248217 Are you related? He is my Great Great Grandfather on my mother's side. Would you transfer to me, so I may update information for others related and add his picture?
Also, did you get the information from or did you find the info from another source? Trying to find the exact year of death and wondered if you had any info that would help. I live in Phoeniz, Arizona and I am unable to find any info, like death certificate or newspaper article on what happened and when/where.
Hope you can help, Joanne Cosgrove (#47205417)

Frank & Josie Skiera Family
Hello Reena,
Don't know if you are back in Michigan yet, but when you get there again, I'm looking for some Skiera burial sites.
My name is Julie, and I believe that Frank and Josephine Skiera (#58309437) are my great grandparents. I am trying to locate burials for some of Frank & Josie's children. They are:
John C. Skiera b. 1883
Gertrude Skiera-Gularski b. 1901 d. 1974
Mary Skiera b. 1885 d. 1919.
It would be great if you could help. I am living in Iowa & can't get back to Michigan much.
