Bio Photo Because he lived, next door a child
To see him coming often smiled,
And thought him her devoted friend
Who gladly gave her coins to spend.

Because he lived, a neighbor knew
A clump of tall delphiniums blue
And oriental poppies red
He'd given for a flower bed.

Because he lived, a man in need
Was grateful for a kindly deed
And ever after tried to be
As thoughtful and as fine as he.

Because he lived, ne'er great or proud
Or known to all the motley crowd,
A few there were whose tents were pitched
Near his who found their lives enriched.
Edgar A. Guest


If there are entries which need to be corrected or transferred, please send the info to me via the EDIT/CORRECTION option button in the upper right hand corner of the memorial.

I transfer memorials in accordance with Find A Grave's published guidelines. If you request a transfer, please be sure to include your relationship to the person who is the subject of the memorial.

To ensure the correction or transfer is correct, and since we can only transfer ONCE, I cannot respond to these via my public message board.
Thank you for your understanding

Lillie Sanders Allen memorial# 58953915
I wondered if you could help me disconnect Lillie from her current mother Mary Ann Smith Elliott memorial# 148073795 and her father Aaron Saunders Memorial # 103950445. I am the person who originally connected Lillie Allen to these people. But I since found new evidence that these two people are not her parents. The Real daughter of Aaron & Mary is Lillian Lureittia Saunders Berry. Lillian also died in Arenac County, I recently found her Michigan death certificate linking this Lillian to her parents Aaron & Mary Smith Saunders, I also found an obituary for Lillian's sister referring to Lillian's husband as Mrs Amos Berry---not Mrs Allen. Would you like to see this evidence? I can easily send copies of this evidence to you. I apologize for my error and hope you help me correct my mistake. Thank you for your help

RE: Mem #79226675-Johann
Thanks so much for your reply.

I have made a memorial for John Leonard (Holmberg)--Memorial #146245275. In it, he is listed as "body lost at sea". If we are ever able to determine that "Johann" (memorial #79226675
in Clam Lake Cemetery is John Leonard, I will change the burial information.

Mem #79226675-Johann
I am interested in this memorial for "Johann" at Clam Lake Cemetery in Wexford County, Michigan.

A man named John Leonard Holmberg who came from Sweden, while working aboard a ship, drowned in Lake Michigan in 1875. He left a wife and children in Clam Lake. We had thought his body wasn't found, but after seeing this memorial, I am wondering if this could be his grave.
