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.

Hi Mary,
Thank you for letting me know that the marriage year was incorrect. It is corrected now. Also, thank you for all of your work on Find A Grave. This site has helped countless people because of selfless volunteers like you!
God bless,

RE: Gabriel Paradis
Hi Mary,
I've transferred Gabriel's memorial to you since I'm not a direct descendant and you are (he's a cousin). I was misdirected on the Kamouraska cemetery, so I see have more relatives that will need moved - thanks for the heads up.

I actually already had the information from the inscription up in the body of the bio, I just added the "Inscription" that you had on your memorial and gave you credit (since it was from your memorial that you created after mine).

I've done extensive research on this family line, which is why there are so many siblings, parents, etc. attached and detailed bio's. I'm always happy to transfer non-direct ancestors though...

Thanks, Anita

RE: Jennie Sanner
That is a very kind offer. I am not related to her, either, but have been asked to help a relative pull together a family tree. She is in good hands. I'll just send updates as I get them. Thank you so much.

Thanks for such prompt action. It can be a real puzzle figuring this stuff out sometimes. I know I appreciate the help of other Find a Gravers.

RE: Austin, Daniel #82040948

Sorry, I don't have any info on William. I took all the pictures in the Fort Kent Cemetery in the middle of Fort Kent & didn't find any Austins.

I am ok with Jim & the info came from the Somerset County St Albans 09 Village Cemetery.pdf on line.

RE: Phebe Budd
Questions: why is Seely Jr.on side by himself?
Phebe and Seely Sr on the same side and no mention of wife, so she could be his daughter, sister to seely jr. ? what do you think

RE: Phebe Budd
What ever you think is ok with me, since she is 19 years older than seely jr, it looked like mother but i am not doing family research i am only posting photos. so let some family member make the final decision. unless the caretaker can clear up this. i can send a message to him and see if he has anything. c

RE: Phebe Budd
Phebe's husband is Seely, their son is Seely have Seely's father correct but I don't think Jr had a wife, the years work this way so If you can delete his spouse and put her into his mothers place, then all will be right with the world.
