Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in 1958 in Burbank, California. My family returned to Grand Rapids, Michigan when I was three years old. At the age of 18 I became a genealogist and since that time have found 741 ancestors and thousands of cousins. I have located 171 ancestral graves using I began teaching high school history in 1991 which I still do. I married Marie Gingrich on October 13, 2001 in Cocolamus, Pennsylvania. We have two Children, Elizabeth and Henry. I use Findagrave in my history classes.

Myrta Melinda Kellogg Lewis photo request Rock Creek Cemetery DC

According to the online database Mrs. Lewis is not interred in the same lot as her husband.

Online here:

I can't find her mother interred in Rock Creek Cemetery either.

If you could review the database and see if you can locate her in Rock Creek I'd be glad to get you a picture of the lot.

If you conclude that she is not interred in Rock Creek would you kindly remove the request?

Thanks so much!

RE: Baldry marker photo
I was finally able to get the ground markers for the Baldry graves in Forest Ontario. I apologize for the extreme delay. The second marker is for Janet Stevens Baldry and after checking your other memorials I believe the John I found was not the one you requested. I didn't realize there was two John Baldry's in there. With your permission I will remove the photos I added to the one John and add them to the other. I have a number for the cemetery now so I will be able to locate the other John.
