Albert Bell
Information on his father was already contained in the bio section. Have linked him to his mother, and posted the obituary, for which I thank you very much.

RE: Ida Buttermore
I suppose Ida could have been married before Albert Bell, she was 18 at that time. She is listed on the 1860 census as 2yr old daughter of Myron & Mariah Chalker. Myron died in 1864 in the Civil War and Maria married Wm Oliphant. I do not find Ida in 1870, she is not with her Mom & William & sister Ella.
Her death certificate does say Hiram for a father.
I guess we keep looking.

James Colby
Thank you for checking out the cemetery for a
stone for James Colby. I got the information
from the Grand Rapids city clerk and she
sent me the locations for the gravesite.
Other family buried there were his 1st wife,
Laura, d. 9/6/1926 (grave 7), his daughter and
son-in-law, Flora and Olin Clyde Tucker (d. 5/15/1901 and 16 May 1923, graves 4 & 5). These
are probably all the plots that you said didn't
have stones. I do have a amall obit for James,
so that is helpful. Again, not everyone had
the money for stones. Appreciate your trying.

Leone is Clyde's first wife. They had three daughters: Marie (Jake Fisher) of Dacatur GA; Doris (Claude Williams) of Ehrenberg AZ and Patricia (William Merrick) of Grand Rapids MI. Leona was his second wife and my own relative.

RE: Hattie Griswold Bacon
Hello Ken, Thank you so much for putting up the photo of Hattie's marker. She and all of her siblings are on the Griswold marker there near where she and Albert are buried. Their graves are actually marked by just small stones with their initials, next to each other near both obelisks. I am glad you enjoyed the book. It was a labor of love! I followed up with another book about the resort that Hattie stayed at in Traverse City from 1888 until her death. It was a little bit better written, as I knew the first book had way too much information in it. It took me over 12 years to get it finished in between kids and work, etc. so I was determined to put all the data in the book. The second book is called Edgewood Resort, A Place Apart. It is available at Horizon Books in Traverse City or from myself if you are at all interested. Thanks again!-- Julie

RE: Jennie Thompson
Hi Ken,

Jennie was the wife of Frank B. Thompson, brother to my gr-great grandfather George H. Thompson.

You may already have this information but I wanted to send it along just in case. Frank was the son of James Thompson and Louisa Stevens. He was born on April 18, 1853, Maine and died May 22, 1935 in Santa Barbara, CA. Frank and Jennie were married in Crow Wing county on April 11, 1878. They had one child, Frank Appleton Thompson born May 1, 1879 in Brainerd and died March 8, 1953 in Portland, OR.

Thanks for contacting me,
