Bio and Links
Bio Photo I find 'Find A Grave' a great research tool. I'm retired, living in Traverse City, Michigan and using genealogy as a way of keeping my mind active. I have been president of Grand Traverse Area Genealogical Society and am a member of Austin Family Association of America.

I do transfers, links, change information and anything else I can to make FAG a place that is user friendly. It is the members of Find A Grave who make it great place to spend your research time.

If you are related to any person on my memorial list, send me and e-mail or a public message about your family.

My family lines are Austin, Penix/Penick, Paradis, King, Bowman, Joseph, Taft, Seelye, Todd, Pinette, Nadeau, Rose, Reed, Barker, Lovejoy, and Foster.

Marybath Morton
Thanks so much for sending the birth information on Marybath Morton. I'll gladly make the edit to the memorial but would be very grateful for a source so that I can record it in my own database. I've attempted several times this morning to seach at NEHGS and their system is acting up so I can't get into the birth records for MA.

Petoskey History 1852-2002
RE: Ben Bain
Hi, Mary. Thanks for the reply. After I wrote you about Ben, I was able to find information on the grandson Glen (and a few others) that nicely brings in the Bain connection to Bremmeyr-Bain Hardware Store (a big part of Petoskey for so many years. (I linked everyone that wasn’t already linked.) In my on going research I may come across biographical information on Ben in a newspaper article or elsewhere. If I do, I will be sure to send it to you. Hope you are having a great spring time. M.S.

RE: Smith and McArthur in Rock Falls
Hi Mary,
Although I am only very, very distantly related to these folks, you may transfer them if you wish. I already have several in Rock Falls.

Thanks,
Don

RE: Seelye/Seeley/Seely
I requested Ebenezer Seelye's change so the speelling would harmonize with his wife, as I had looked for him and it didn't come up. I did see a tombstone photo for Frank "Seely" so it may very well be spelled that way...I was thinking they should be alike...to facilitate when searching.
I'm not related, so I don't know which is which, and if you want to change Ebenezer's wife's last name that can be done also. Like I say, if you're related, you know more than I about it.
Thanks for writing and let me know what to do...meanwhile, you can ignore the name edit.

Carole Alden
Thank you
I was just at Find A Grave Memorial# 21342511 and wondering if she was who I tought she was even tough her name listed wasn't what I expected when I saw you little note. Thank you, she is who I tought she was. I'm working with a box of old pictures from her earlier line and posting the info at Ancestry.com and Find A Grave.

RE: Bennett
I am not a direct line but a distant cousin but every so often I do check these lines to see if I can find anymore information. I would like to find a more direct relative. If I do then I will let you know. Thanks, Marsha
