I currently live in Jasper County in Northern, IN. While a lot of my family lived in the Escanaba area of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan at one time, I do not live anywhere near that area. In fact, I would love to make the 7-8 hour trip up there some time myself &/or would love a bit of research help if anyone ever wants to make a visit to Bethany Lutheran Church's archives. They have to be gone through manually, in person.
In the meanwhile, I'm more than happy to do what I can to help you with photo requests in Jasper County Indiana (Demotte, Wheatfield, Kniman, Rensselaer, etc). I also have access to some of the funeral home records & cemetery index books through one branch of the local library system. If I can help you (weather permitting), I will!
If you ever see a photo of mine on F.A.G that you would like sent to you at a higher resolution (for better quality), please do not hesitate to contact me. It some times takes me a bit to receive my email as I have a lot currently on my plate. While occasionally slow, I promise that I will indeed respond!
The email address displayed for me is current as of 2015-01-25.
I wanted to let you know that I was able to take the photos of the graves for the Cullisons in Rosehill Cemetery. Mary's name on her headstone, however, is spelled "May". Was this a nickname for her? Also, Dean and Mary had a baby named Eleanor, and her name is also on Mary/May's headstone. Dean's wife Clara is also buried there. I made memorials for Eleanor and Clara and uploaded the photos, in case you'd like to see them.
Mary Jeffers Sorry.. I was referring to another mary Jeffers...one in Texas. the one in Indiana may well be the one I am looking for. some of the Jeffers changed the spelling to Jeffries, Jeffres, etc. Are the dates on her stone?? Thanks for any help. c J smith
