Lula M. (Hill) Conrad No. 59518344
Oops - I hit a wrong key. Bill - I am sorry but I do not have anymore research on the Conrad family. I am related to Lula M. (Hill) Conrad through my Hill side of the family. We share David Hill who was the father of my great, great grandfather Jacob Hill and also the father of Lula's father Leander Hill. My father did the research on our Hill family. I am doing my other 3 grandparents as far back as I can. I appreciate your contacting me and wish I could be of help. Most Sincerely - Carolyn (Hill) Krueger

No relation. I collected and distributed Leelanau County Certificates of Death from the Michigan Library.

Youmans Family
Hi Bill I have been trying to reach you to send a link to the Youmans family story and a photo gallery of the Youmans Cousins. I mailed you but my mail was returned has your email changed recently?
Would love to share the links with you as you were very kind to me when I was researching the Youmans family when I was proving my connection to Arthur Youmans UEL.

RE: Timothy Fay
Your welcome, I was taking pictures of my great grandfather and aunt and saw the gravestone. Sorry it was in such bad condition.

I would love to get in touch to share information on the Youmans family. Joseph Youmans was a brother to my Great Great Grandmother Mary L. Youmans King. She passed in 1894 and her children were then raised by her sister Katherine Youmans Towns. We were not aware that Joseph had children until we visited the gravesite and found Father and Mother on his and his wife's headstones. Thank you for sharing the grave information as well as the photos, it made it very easy to locate.

RE: Williams line

I would love to compare information and fill the gaps. I work full-time, but maybe we can talk some evening.
