Bio and Links
Bio Photo Welcome, everyone. I am Frank Passic, Albion Historian (Albion, Calhoun County, Michigan). Check out the listings for Riverside Cemetery, as this cemetery dates back to 1837, and most burials are now listed on Findagrave. If your ancestor lived in the Albion, Michigan area, I might be able to help you. I write a weekly history column and many of these have been published on the web site. Be sure to check this out and type in a name in the search engine there, and you can also leave a message on the guestbook. If your ancestors lived in the Albion area, feel free to contact me and I can look up to see if any of your surnames are buried in Riverside Cemetery in Albion. I live only a few blocks from the cemetery and am more than happy to receive photo requests for there. I also maintain a private Albion area history archives with many surname files. Best wishes in your quest and research. Frank Passic, Albion Historian.
NOTE: With the advent of Findagrave's links to relatives and having posted thousands of entries, it can be time consuming to have to link parents and spouses. When requesting links to parents or spouses, please use the Findagrave "Edit" tab in the upper right corner of each individual listing, rather than a request on my message board here. Thanks for your consideration.

David Trine Photo
I was wondering where that picture came from. I assumed it was from a professional publication, but I was thinking perhaps Oregon State University. It looks somewhat like a faculty photo. Right now I am working with two different archives who have "rediscovered" his papers. While none of my Trine or Burgess people from Springport are "famous" some of them had interesting lives. Emanuel Trine and David Urias Trine, also buried in Springport, were with the first company of men who went over the breech, ending the long battle and siege at Petersburg. There is even a monument marking the occasion. David Winfield Trine started the Agricultural schools at Oregon, and the same has been rumored to be true at Michigan State (although the school will not confirm or deny this.) Now I just want to post what photos I have, along with biographies, just so things are not lost to history. Deb Hayes-Wolfe has helped me just post several biographies today.
Thanks for taking an interest.
