Bio and Links
Bio Photo Greetings from Pittsburgh PA! Although I currently reside in the great City of Pittsburgh, I'm not a Pennsylvania native. I moved here over a decade ago to pursue career opportunities as an archivist. I have recently completed my master's degree at the University of Pittsburgh.

I was born and reared in Michigan where many of my ancestors were early pioneers in the 1830's and 1840's. Many of my postings on Find-A-Grave will be from Michigan. Unfortunately, I do not get back to my native state as often as I wish. But, I do maintain listings for the following Michigan cemeteries:

Cradit Cemetery, Leoni Twp., Jackson Co.
Nims Cemetery, Henrietta Twp., Jackson Co.
Pleasant Grove Cemetery, Henrietta Twp., Jackson Co.

I welcome inquires for these cemeteries.

Happy Hunting!

RE: Hagaman's
You're very welcome, David. The afternoon sun makes the difference on west-facing stones. The
ones that are shaded didn't fare so well, though

Jack Robert Johnson
Thank you for finding my dad, Jack Robert Johnson. A Lt. in the US Army he passed away in 1965 when I was barely 2yrs old. Now I'm almost 50, been wondering about him and looking for him for a long time. And it was nice knowing my grandparents are in the same cemetery with him.

Henry Hoyt FOUND !!!
I went on the monthly cemetery walk in Oakwood today, looking at the landscape design. Walking up the trail through the old parts of the cemetery I was scanning the names for the database in my head and found Henry in Section 22. I have attached the photo to the memorial and asked the creator to edit the info, but I will also email the pictures to you.

RE: Robert T. Reams and his son--
David: Since I didn't create the Memorial for Donald (Cluckymom did), Find A Grave won't allow me to edit the Family Relationships. Robert's memorial only allows mother, father and spouse - not children. So, I will ask Cluckymom to transfer the memorial to me and then I can add the relationship links. It looks like Donald's wife was IVAL LUCILE REAMS and she is buried in the plot with him, so I will be able to link them also.
