I am interested in the "how and why" you have concluded that Henry G. and Eliza Jane Cooper are the parents of William Henry Cooper. I am looking for his parentage also. There are so many William Cooper's, it is very hard to weed out the right one. :)

Thank you,

This second record in Ontario gives "Frank's parents names:
Ontario, Canada, Marriages, 1801-1928, 1933-1934

William Cooper

I searched the entire cemetery for this stone and could not find it. It is probably covered by grass at this point. I do plan to go back to it sometime soon as I live close, and I will check again then.

I have just transfered this memorial over to your care. I live in Gaylord and have been working on getting everyone in Fairview Cemetery onto Find A Grave. When weather is dry, I will get pictures.

Nelson Girardin memorial
M Girardin, I processed edits for the above memorial as you suggested. I noticed your last name and assume that you have some association with the Girardin family. If you would like to manage Nelson's memorial, I would gladly transfer it to you. Just let me know.

J. Champagne
Hugh Livingston descendant
My name is Jory Champagne,Hugh Livingston was my great-great grandfather. Before he moved back to Michigan he had a family in Louisiana. Are you a descendant of him also or do know any descendants of him? I have been trying for years to find information on him after returning back to Michigan.

RE: Thomas West # 57342429
That is very kind of you. I have page 902 from MA Soliers and Sailors, and have always thought that was him, but hesitated because it wasn't actual "proof." Though everything points to it being him. The hesitation came because he would be a 42 year old private, a man that had babies at home. And I wondered if he would really be going to fight. Though all the other information leads to him. One being that Jabez Cottle, the commander of that unit, was his 1st cousin. I really appreciate the note and thoughts. It's nice to know that the DAR thinks it's him. So that's nice. I'll make a note of his Patriot number.

Thank you so much for posting a picture of Margaret's stone. She is my 4x great grandmother!

Was her husband Martin buried there too?

Note: Interestingly, the death record list I can view at LDS says 4/6 rather than 4/26.

RE: Margaret Walker
Thanks for the information, it did help. We had not known about Margaret. This is the benefit of someone else's eyes, to see something you wouldn't be able to find. We found Sam's other 2 daughters.

The website is one we used to find obits that lead us to other people. It's very useful for connecting the dots.

Thank you so much for posting all the pictures of the Ryan's from Merrill MI who were buried at St. Patrick's Cemetery. This is my husbands family. Sarah Loretta Ryan (Daniel Ryan & Sarah Kelly)was the sister to John Ryan. She married Robert Dennis Madden. We got a kick out of the photo of John (Cement Johnny) Ryan.

#132969679. This man is buried at Oakwood Cemetery not Oakwood Memorial Mausoleum. The cemetery and the mausoleum are next door to each other, thus causing a lot of confusion. Also, Oakwood Memorial Mausoleum is NOT owned by the city of Saginaw.

The following is the web address for the City of Saginaw Cemetery search page:

According to the record, the grave address is Section 116, Plot S560 with a marker. This site has nice, detailed maps of the cemetery.

Photo of Anna and Owen Ryan
I just happened to go to Owen Ryan's findagrave page and you had posted a picture there with the entire family in 1915. So very cool! As I have never seen a photo of the parents Do you have other photos of the family. I am going to try a get a copy made but not sure how well it will turn out as the photo is kinda grainy. Still cool anyway!

RE: Point Pelee Cemetery Girardin
The one I am referring to is the same DeLaurier family cemetery. It also goes by the name Point Pelee Cemetery (not to be confused with the one on the island). The Francis Girardin monument I photographed was just beyond the Maxon Girardin headstone. All of the photos I posted to your memorials in fulfillment of your request were ones that I had taken earlier this summer while hiking at Point Pelee National Park. I happened to have kept them on file, history buff that I am. I'd like to go back and re-photograph that particular marker to see if there were inscriptions on its other faces since it appears that Francis Girardin was married (to a DeLaurier).

I'll happily send you images of what I have to date of it if you contact me at:

Point Pelee Cemetery Girardin
In Point Pelee Cemetery there was a monument with the name Francis Girardin (dod Aug 27, 1898). I also photographed this marker. Contact me if you want more information and/or the images.

Sorry it has taken a few days to reply to the Find-A-Grave email I received from you. I do have information that I would be happy to provide you to add to the memorials for the Haley family. I am a descendent of the Carey-Haley family. My great-grandparents, Roger Moran & Bridget Carey Moran are buried at St. Patrick's. I haven't been to St. Patrick's since Sept 2000 when I came with my Mom to the 125th anniversary of St. Patrick's.

There are a group of Carey-Haley descendants that have been working on the family tree for many years. I have been actively researching my family since 2000 and my mother years before that. Thanks so much for your photos. I'd not seen John Haley and other graves. It's clear that many of these stones are deteriorating -- your photos will preserve the info for generations to come.

Are you related to the Haley family or other families from Mt. Haley?

Please feel free to contact me directly through my email:

I'd not seen Look forward to hearing from you and collaborating on the memorials.

Hi, I just came across this site. So very interesting.! Charles Joseph Kinney and Reeta Osborne Kinney were my maternal great-grandparents. In the listing of their children my grandmother is not listed. Her name is Janet Ruthema Kinney Reid. She died in 1996 in Clio, MI. Genesee County

It's good to see such cooperation on the merging of two memorials. We all gain more this way. (Job and Charity's daughter Sarah Head was married into a Rogers line.)
