RE: Orson Church
Phil, Thanks again. Sometimes the stone is the only record of a birth and death for a person and as the years go by the stone become more unreadable. Now at least there will always be a record and they will be remembered by the future members of my family.

Irvin F. Perry - Lakeview Cemetery
When you took this photo, do you happen to remember the names on the other stones that were in the same section and plot location? Another Find A Grave'er just sent me the plot location for Cyrus, Mary O. (Walters) Perry and Irvin and they all were in the same location; that being, Section A / Lot 145.

In looking at the various census records for Cyrus and Mary, the 1880 only shows one son, Oscar (variously spelled in other census records) and in the 1900 census Mary says she is the mother of 1 with 1 living.

The kicker is that she actually had two children born as twins with one of them dying so never listed in any census.

Irvin doesn't fit as the unnamed twin because the tombstone indicates a birth year that is 10 years after the birth of Oscar.

I'm on vacation at the moment so can't look at the Vital Records for Oakland Co to see if he was born there to Cyrus and Mary; but I don't have access to the vital records for Livingston county and can't do a look up and even if I could, then stopped filming deaths in 1919-1920 and the death records on line end in 1920. The only other option is the SSDI and it isn't helpful for this individual as he dies before 1966.

Is there anyway you can get in touch with the cemetery office and see if you can glean any info about this particular plot location to see if they can tell you anything about Irvin?

Hope you can help.

Thank you for the two photos! It was wonderful to see the full view with the flag and not just the close up. Did you by chance see an Olive Berry or another other Berry there? I've not located his wife (Olive) yet.

Phil, the triple named headstone on Albert's memorial (101399621) should be the same for Marian's memorial (104496440) -she is named on the headstone. If you would please add it to her memorial page as well.

Thanks so much, Doni
