Bio Photo It isn't the date on either end that counts but how they used their dash for that dash between the dates represents all the time they spent alive on earth and now only those who loved them know what that little line is worth.
I am working on adding names to the White Pigeon Township Cemetery and the St. Joseph Catholic Church Cemetery both in White Pigeon, Michigan. I would be glad to transfer memorials of your family members.

Hi Karen,

I added the obituary information you sent for O. J. Lunger to his memorial. Thanks for the input! I appreciate it.

Have a wonderful day!

White Pigeon Cemetery Map
Hi Karen,
I added a label below the Memorial Park Addition label showing which way the Row numbers go. I hope this is what you wanted. I do not know the row numbering scheme for the rest of the cemetery, so I can't try to update the whole map.
The new map I added says it can't yet be seen by other users because it is currently pending approval by Find A Grave. I don't know how long it takes them to decide that it is OK to post.
Let me know if the new map is what you wanted.

Karen, thank you so much for your thoughtfulness. I am a collector of Civil War relics and have several that belonged to Daniel Saunter. Adding your photo to the grouping is "priceless".

Photo request

Your message didn't include a link to the memorial that I requested a picture for and I've requested several lately. In general, I only request pictures for relatives so I think the answer to your question is yes, I'm related. If you can send me a memorial number or link, I'll tell you how I'm related.

RE: john p. leighty

Please do . . . our efforts should all be about sharing. I have a general release on my front page. I was visiting Indiana from California, researching family records; and I always photograph additional graves, hoping to add memorials for families to find.

RE: aaron ivins
Coincidence that you would find that as we were in Georgia last month visiting my mom and went to Andersonville and to Aaron's grave. Yes, he served in a different infantry unit than my ggrandfather Owen but they were all three (Owen, William-the one in WP and Aaron) at Chickamauga when Aaron was taken prisoner and sent to southern Georgia. Owen and Aaron were brothers and William a cousin but had lived with the Isaac Ivinses a lot and was like a brother to them. BTW, I am the Laura Cox who submitted the picture and some of the info. My maiden name is Dutch for "Man with Wings". That was a great trip and that National Historic Site is dedicated to all prisoners of war. Aaron left behind a wife and two sons. Hiram Ivins-buried in WP Cemetery-was the son of Aaron Ivins. I cannot find the older son's (Marion) burial place but it is possible he was buried in the Ivins Cemetery which is down the road to Middlebury from WP (behind a house). I have the Ivins Cemetery coordinates somewhere. Isn't it fascinating what you learn from family History? Laura
