We are the Dexter Trail Questers. We are a group of ladies interested in history and historical things. We have adopted as our current "project" the logging, verifying and photographing of each gravestone in Fairview Cemetery, Dansville MI. All visible stones in Fairview Cemetery as of July 2013 have been photographed. We are a very cooperative organization so any time a "family member" seeks a memorial they are interested in maintaining but "owned" by DT Quester, please, notify us and we will be happy to transfer ownership. Also, we are looking for family stories of the people buried in Fairview so if there are any out there floating around in cyberspace, please pass them onto us! We have gotten an "historical" designation to the cemetery and had a great dedication ceremony Oct. 3, 2010.|
We are now working on getting records and photos for other cemeteries in the Dansville, Williamston, White Oak, and Stockbridge areas.
NOTE: Our organization is now cleaning cemetery markers. For more information, please email us.
DO NOT email us for an any memorial requests, use edit tab ONLY.
Also please include your FAG membership number.
It provides a link to the memorial, making quick and smooth transactions. Thank you.
USE EDIT TAB ON THE MEMORIAL PAGE FOR ALL TRANSFERS, ADDITIONS OR CORRECTIONS. Requests not made this way will be deleted.
REMINDER: "Federal copyright laws prohibit the coping of photographs without the original photographers written consent, which must be provided prior to the duplication"

|Donna Schwarzwaelder||RE: looking for Mabee family|
Thanks for responding. I have not been successful to date, in finding much info. What I have is a memorial written by the Annual Michigan Methodist Church Minutes, on my great great grandmother, Anna Jane Graham Mabee Ball. Her last husband (David Ogden Ball) was my great great grandfather. What the memorial stated was that she brought her deceased husband Ephraim Mabee and young son Henry back to Dansville from New Jersey to be buried. I now believe that info was probably incorrect, since it would have been 1851, and I am assuming the travel would have been too long transporting the bodies. The other info I have from the same minutes is that a daughter Anna Jane Mabee died from an illness and was buried in Dansville, sometime around 1868 (b. 1841). I know she existed because she was listed in a will of her grandfather.
I did find an Ephraim buried in NJ, wrong age, but next to children with the same parents he had. I am assuming that is probably him, since he died in the same area.
Even though I'm not directly linked to the Mabees, it has brought up questions about Anna Jane's quest.I know some later info on her, and her other daughter from that marriage, and I know where they are buried, but the question of why and how she ended up in Dansville, is wide open for discovery.
Thanks for what little info you sent. Was the plot in one of the Dansville cemeteries? Wish I had more info. If I retrieve more, I will certainly contact you with what I have. Thanks for trying to help. I appreciate it.
You seem to be interested in the Gilliam's buried in Stockbridge Cemetery. Here is a bit more info on the family from my chart 198. This looses all it's format. I can send it and chart 213 which might be of help to you. Please send an email address as I can not leave an attachment here. Thanks. Mary (The chart will help you match people up (link) and also give you dates and info you do not have on findagrave. I am the editor of Gillams Galore newsletter and I collect charts on the surname with researchers and sources. Hope this helps. Mary
P.S. Wallace is linked to Hannah and she can be linked to Thomas. Other children are listed in the cemetery. Mary

I was told Mary's grandfather Elias Dean was the son of Daniel DEan & Ann Vanhorn, but I have no proof of this. Daniel was my 5th great grandfather. He died in Livingston Co., MI. Born in Wales. He lived in New York were his children were born, and came to Michigan in the 1830's.

I have made the updates you suggested, based on the information you provided it certainly seems like this is the correct person. for one more confirming opinion I'd suggest you contact the person who posted the death certificate, she has put a lot of work into researching the cemetery, and may have additional information. I would also ask that you consider sharing anything you have on Mrs. Kelly with the staff at the Terry Wantz Historical Research Center in Fremont, they will be very interested in any information on the county poor farm cemetery.
While the poor farm lay neglected and forgotten for a very long time, it is now well taken care of by the Medical Care Facility which currently sits on the site. Although the graves remain unmarked, there is a small pond, a walkway, and a lot of activity on the grounds. Although I am no longer in the area, I have a long association with the site, and am pleased that you have taken an interest in one of it's slumbering residents.
