Bio and Links
Bio Photo I grew up in Jackson Co., MI on the northside of town. Most of my grandmother's (on my mom's side) descendents orignally settled in that area. The Smith, Hatton and Barnes families came from England to NY and then eventually settled in the Rives Jct/Tompkins area. The Oesterle (Frey and Ziefle) family came from Germany to NY and settled in Chelsea, MI; while the Stull (Lutz, Cover & Spayde) family came from Germany >PA >OH and then settled in MI.

Most of my grandfather's (on my mom's side) descendents remained in AR, but my grandpa along with his parents (Ratliff) and siblings migrated to MI in the 1930's; his Uncle Grace's family moved there as well. Grandpa's descendents migrated from TN >NC >MO and then into Arkansas prior to the Civil War (Campbell, Brown, Lundy, Kerr & Underwood).

My father's side of the family originally came from England. The Comstock's, (Clarke, Snyder, Hilliard, Thorpe, Holmes, Jones, Daniel & Elderkin) were some of the first to settle in Plymouth colony, MA. They then migrated to CT/RI/NY before making their way to the Parma/Springport area of Jackson County, MI. They were among some of the first families to live in MI.

Find-A-Grave does a great job. It has been my privilege to contribute information or photos when I can. I've contributed family information as well as adding memorials & photos locally from the Warsaw, Kosciusko Co., IN area where I currently live. However, it has appeared that Warsaw is well covered by volunteers, so I have branched out to the surrounding county of Wabash and will likely visit Whitley & Marshall counties in the future.

My wife is distant cousins, so your good and don't have to transfer. We just wanted to update the memorials as much as possible, so thank you for updating them for us.

RE: Olive Nogar
7's and 2's are always a problem when they use that cursive style. Good catch. Always nice to see improvements on the memorials. One person's find, leads to another's as well. It is a consistent mystery. Hope you can enjoy the upcoming weekend..............Diane

Arthur Paul Coblentz
Hi, Dawn, I see you are maintaining Arthur Paul Coblentz's memorial and that he is the son of Herbert Coblentz 78307010. Are you a descendant? I believe Herbert's father was Samuel Coblentz 46918380. I am a Coblentz descendant. I have been researching Samuel and his 11 siblings. I look forward to hearing from you. Jane from MI newjane2011@gmail.com
