Bio and Links
In 2009, I began documenting and photographing the graves at Mt. Elliott Cemetery, the oldest cemetery in Detroit. There are an estimated 75,000 to 100,000 people buried at Mt. Elliott and while my efforts will not document everyone, I am trying to do my part to memorialize those who are buried there. If you have a correction, addition, relationship link or biographical information to add to one of my memorials, please click on the edit tab and choose the Suggest a Correction option. I will do my best to make changes as soon as possible.

If you are requesting a photograph of a grave at Mt. Elliott and the memorial does not have the plot information, please call Mt. Olivet Cemetery at (313) 365-5650 and get the information, then post that information with your request. The cemetery is simply too large to locate a grave without the plot information.

Please DO NOT post a duplicate gravestone photograph to the memorials that I have created or manage. There is no need for you to duplicate a picture of a stone I already have photographed.

John Hasse 145078609
I am researching the Hasse family buried in Ludington, Michigan. Would you know if this John Hasse is the same as Jens Hasse that immigrated in 1888. (Married to Henrietta, children: Jens (James), Marible?, and Henrietta Hass ?

Schulte Photo Requests
Thank you so much for checking out the Schulte grave sites and letting me know that they are unmarked. I made a notation in the plot section. I appreciate your time and effort.

By chance do you know if there was any birth, death or interment date?

Thank you for trying to locate this headstone. Not too surprised about a buried stone. We have come across many we could not find & several we found literally sunk 4-6 inches down

Thank you for your time& effort.
Do you ever do photo requests at Mt. Olivet?
A group of 3 or 4 of us usually meet up once a week at Mt. Olivet. Interested in joining us?

Bernhard Ackerman/Mt. Elliott
Hi Debbie,

Wow, thank you so much for looking into this, and so quickly! I just made the memorial last night (found Bernhard's name on the Mt. Elliott website). It's quite a letdown to know there is no stone. I just read the note the person before me left you, and the situation's the same. I just appreciate the fact you looked into this!

Thanks again!

Oh, and of course, I will most certainly put on his page that there is no stone or marker! :)
