|Bio and Links|
I'm a retired Legal Admin in Macomb County bordering St. Clair Co, Michigan. I'm a cemetery walker who enjoys visiting local cemeteries to take headstone photos since Walking & Bending has improved my health & blood pressure to 117/70. I also take additional photos & focus on the older stones & Veteran's markers before they fade to preserve history for future generations. Hope my photos help someone else in their genealogy hunts, and these postings may help you make a connection. I would be happy to transfer memorial pages to family members. NOTE: You have my permission to use any photo I've taken and posted on FAG in your own family research, as long as it is not for profit. A note of credit would be appreciated, but not necessary. I'm photographing to share and for others to use...|
I appreciate the opportunity that Find A Grave gives everyone to learn and share. If you want to review or add to what is already shown, or discuss posting please contact me. I love additions and updates! I am more than happy to link family members and make corrections.
I have lived in Michigan all of my life. My ancestors came to America from Ireland, England, & Germany beginning in the late 1700's & early 1800's and settled primarily in Pennsylvania; Ann Arbor, Michigan; and Canada. My family lineage names are: Shaw, Irvin, Patton, Orr, Hawkins, Lindsay, Irwin, Stattenfield, Antes, Bartholomew, Campbell, Lutz, Lucas, Pardon, Ritz . . .
Many thanks to those contributors who were gracious enough to transfer the memorials for my close family members, outside of the FAG guidelines, even though they were not obligated to do so.
Public records are a wide variety of records that are being kept by the government and are open to the public under the freedom of information act. They include marriage records, divorce records, court records, birth records, death records and many more.
In most of the U.S., by law, cemeteries are required to keep records regarding burial or cremations of individuals. Cemetery records will usually contain the name of the deceased, the date of passing and location of burial within the cemetery itself. Cemetery records are also required by the cemeteries themselves, as they need a means to make sure they are not using the same burial plots to bury multiple individuals. Therefore, it is not unlikely that the cemetery records hold an exact index of the grave and in some cases, a map may also be available. In some cases, the cemetery records may hold additional information such as maintenance requirements at the request of the family, landscaping and so forth. It is also not unlikely to have information on the burial itself, the making of the headstone and specific text that was requested for it. The text itself is valuable as it often indicates existence of relatives or information on the deceased itself. Although, on some older records in the early-mid 1800's, I've discovered the only record is "occupied" with no name, but each jurisdiction is unique. Some of the records kept by churches attached to little graveyards may even contain marriage, baptism records/witnesses.

|Roslyn Roisman-Patchi||RE: Landons - Oaklawn|
Thank you so much Marguerit!
I added photo of stone to Betty's memorial. Find A Grave states it's ok to create memorials for someone without death dates if the birth date is no greater than 1931.

|Trina Troxell Corson and Eileen Rydbom Beers||RE: Capt James & Cornelia Dowler 106288395 @ Burnside|
You are very welcome! I do have more pictures of Burnside, but haven't gone through them all to know exactly what I do have. I do know that I don't have all the cemetery, but will let you know if I find anymore photographs of the Dowler family. Yes, we are getting more snow right now. I am sure you have quite a bit too!
|4th Michigan Infantry||RE: Langdon Case #115303860 @ Memphis Cemetery in Macomb Co, Mi|
Actually Langdon served with the Fourth Michigan Cavalry (horse-soldiers) which was an entirely different regiment than the Fourth Michigan Infantry (foot-soldiers). But thanks anyway and keep up the good work!
|Roslyn Roisman-Patchi||Landons - Oaklawn|
The photos are simply beautiful! Thanks so very much!

Hi again Marguerite. The last time we were fixing the Sutherland's together. Now you've found some of my Hathaway's. I believe that info came from The Library of Michigan. I'll have to go back & check my notes.
