RE: Guiseppe Alonge
You're so welcome! The cemetery records are very up-to-date so if his wife is buried there, they should have a record.
There are so many more markers hiddin in the grass in that section of the cemetery. I wish I would have had more time to unearth more names.
Best wishes in your search!

Guiseppe Alonge
Hello. I recently visited Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Detroit and fulfilled your request for a photo of Guiseppe Alonge. I wanted to let you know a few things about the grave.
The grave is located in a portion of flat graves in section 55. This plot was reserved for those without funds to pay for a plot or a space so individuals were buried according to date of death rather than with family. The markers in this section have sunk into the ground so Guiseppe's marker had be dug out of the mud (as you'll see in the photo). It was almost completely covered in grass and dirt. I apologize for the dirty state of the marker in the photo but I had to dig to find it.
Because graves in this area were given to families who could not pay, I doubt Guiseppe's wife is located nearby (unless she died around the same time as Guiseppe). There are records for all burials online (see the front page of this cemetery) and you could search for his wife there. It's an extremely well-kept and well-documented cemetery.
Finally, the cemetery stone reads Joseph Alonge rather than Guiseppe, but the cemetery records assure me that this is the same person.
Again, I'm sorry for the state of the stone, but I'm glad to have recovered it from out of the overgrown grass.
Have a great day!

Thanks so much for the photo of Uncle Tom and Aunt Flossie's headstone. May I use your photo on my Ancestry tree? It is private and I very seldom allow anyone else access. I will of course give you credit.

Hey sis! I added a couple photos for grandpa and grandma Cascagnette. I had the photo of their headstone and I also added a photo of St. Mary's cemetery that I was able to get from Google maps street view.

RE: Orman & George Decker
Thank you! I've used that site before but did not see this record. I have a male child on the tree with a born/died date of Aug 5 1906 with the name of Lester. I'm not sure where I got the info. It may have been from my grandmother's Bible. I don't remember. I can say the child's name is Lester and I will correct the date and save the document. I will add his burial information as well.

Thank you!

Thank you taking the picture of his headstone. Now if I can just find his wife, Agnes, then I will have solved one of my brick walls.

I have added the memorials. I appreciate your taking the photos. You have provided me with new information by doing this. Thanks again.

Please Photograph any Widrigs
I went through my tree trying to determine if there is anyone else to photograph. In general it would be any Widrigs. I am researching all the descendants of Allen F Widrig. He had two wives, the first buried in Kent County I'm sure, the second, Elizabeth (Helrigel) Widrig (1872-1924), buried at Monroe Center Cemetery.

Arthur Henry Widrig 1872-1924 died at Grawn. Cemetery unknown. He had two wives
1) Myrta (Bell) Widrig (1874- 1908) her death certificate states she is buried in Mayfield Township. I have not identified a cemetery.
2) Emily (Brewer) Widrig (1882 - ?). Have not found her death record. She may have died in Oregon - they lived there for some years, but she might also be buried in Michigan. Have no data on her.

Thanks for all your efforts getting these photos.

RE: Widrig Maple Grove
Yes please. This is strange that I could request the photo when the memorial wasn't there. Would appreciate the transfer. Thanks so much for getting the Widrig photos.

RE: George Decker
Thanks! I could clearly read the "Geo" part on your photo. I think years ago the cost was a big issue and it was easier back then to not put a marker on a child as people kept their feelings hidden where today we do not. My mother lost a daughter after birth in 1961 and to this day there is no marker. My father and his second wife had an identical twin daughter that died after birth in 1971 and there is no marker today. I've noticed that for many babies in my family tree search. My great grandfather was a old man and I'm confused on why a marker wasn't placed as my grandmother was the type of person who would have wanted one there whether they got along or not, and I don't know if they got along. I can only assume it was due to lack of money and as time went by when money became available they probably figured why bother now after all this time. I don't know. I wasn't that close to her and she is gone now. My father is gone now too and we were estranged. Anyway, I truly appreciate your efforts in getting photos for those of us who are too far away. I'm in PA now, again, lol.

George Decker
Thanks a bunch for this! I never expected to have pics of my great great grandfather as it was only listed with the county of burial and not a cemetery so it was a nice accident for you to find, lol. I was wondering if that was a Decker memorial that may have had other Deckers nearby. I wonder why his son Orman didn't have a headstone. I can't imagine my grandmother not getting one for her father. Interesting.

Orman & George Decker
I got the message that Orman's grave marker could not be found but that he was buried next to his father George Decker. Is there a link to the book you mentioned online at all? You mentioned you have a photo of George's grave marker? I didn't have an exact location of George's grave, just the county. I can set up a memorial for George and you could place the photo there. I'd appreciate it. Or you could email me the photo for George at

Thank you,
Karen B
