RE: Jerow Gravestone
A correction message would be great. IO have found numerous spellings for the Jerow family. In more than one it is spelled Jerau and Geroux such as on Elizabeth's obituary. Thanks for noticing! :-)

Peter Pfister
I am at drawing at straws now. By any chance when you took the photo of Peter Pfister's headstone, was there a maker next to him for his wife (Emma (Matehke/Matsky) Pfister? Thank you in advance.

Lily Donnelly
Lily would be my Great-grandmother and in the future it is my desire to visit this cemetary. I believe that Silas Clark is her father (my great great grandfather). Do you know anything about how they died or where she (they)would be located in this cemetary? Lily's husband is Edward Donnelly and he is buried in Cass City and he did not have a grave marker :( I did purchase one for him last year :) I feel this is important for other family members trying to find them also. I also do other have family that live in the U.P. I do not. Any information when they were born, when they died, where they lived, what they deid from, anything you can provide to me, I would appreciate. Thanks!

RE: Ferdinand Robitallie
I would love to read the printing, and look forward to seeing it.
Thank you for the phone number too.
I would really like to be in touch with the historical society. I am looking for the other side of the family, Joseph Truckey and his wife Mary. I did find a son of theirs buried in Old Cooks Cemetery. Joseph and Mary have so far been really difficult to nail down as to where or when they came to the Penninsula.
Thank you Shannon for the help.

RE: Ferdinand Robitallie
Thank You Shannon:
Really appreaciate the effort.
Ferdinand Roberts (Robitaille)
He and his wife are buried in the cemetery, her name is Adelaide.
Many other members of that family are there also.
Are the many cemeteries on the Michigan Penninsula in close proximity to each other?
Maybe one day we can locate where his grave is, and mark it.

RE: Kausbaugh at Nahma
Thank you Sharon!

The original spelling of the surname was Kusbach (in Bohemia), but I have 26 [sic] variations of the spelling. Each child used a different spelling at various times.

Frank used Kousbaugh and Kausbaugh. I have letters where he signed his name both ways. I know the headstone was recorded as Kausbaugh, but his death record was recorded as Kousbaugh.

Martin used Kousbaugh (but he is buried in Gardens of Rest in Wells Township).

The father James Kousbaugh was actually Vaclav (Czech) or Wenzl (German) Kusbach, but his children referred to him as James Kousbaugh. When he signs various documents, it is always as Kusbach or Kusbaugh. I have six variations of his given name along with 26 variations of his last name.

The long-and-short of it, record the name how it is found on the headstone, which may or may not be the way it was recorded on the death record! I will then post the death records and other information I have for the family in Nahma.

Do you live in Nahma?

Thanks, Tom

Deloria headstone
I am currently documenting the Deslauriers/Delioria genealogy and noticed that you had quite a number of headstones for this family. Would it be possible for me to use these photo on my web site. I have poste one temporarily to show what it wll look like :
You list a number of people on that one stone but I do not see any names on it, is there a document that shows who has beenburied there.
Also, any information you are willing to share on the Deloria family is welcome.

RE: Pearl Page
Hello Shannon, SOoooooooooooo kind of you to keep looking!

I have called Luce, Manistique, Mackinac, and a couple of other places and he is MIA. My choices now are to submit to Lansing where all the state records are held or to check in Wisconsin where I know he had children also living. I also called the cemeteries in and around the UP and nothing. This is a crazy search!

Many thanks for the help you have given on this.

Hi Shannon. Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph their graves. Can I use them for my family tree on ancestory?

Richard L Beaudry Grave Picture
Thank you so much for taking the time to go and take a picture of this gravesite. No one on this side of the family has ever been able to visit the gravesite or has ever seen a picture. This will help bring some long over due closure.

Thank you,

Thanks, Shannon, would appreciate if you could do that sometime! Thanks also for those interesting comments about the footstones. I am about to put up another request in a different cemetery ther for another of their children, possibly, Philip, with a close birth date.

Thank you so much!
