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.

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.

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 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.

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
