Bio Photo Havent been getting my messeages through my old e mail my new one is

Well I felt it time to up grade my Profile here, after having a little better knowledge of working this site, and let ya all know of the project Ive started, I'm becoming totally amazed at the Information I find researching the Grave yards in my area.
To start I have begun the process of recording all three cemeteries in Almira Township, Benzie County, Michigan.
Greenbriar Cemetery
Lake Ann Cemetery
and West Almira Cemetery
When I was young I remember my Grandma "Velma Robinson Ryan" dragging me around to these cemeteries, and telling me of this relative and that relative, not really paying much attention, well now that I'm a lot older, and I wonder sometimes of being wiser, but such is the case I spent the better part of last summer going back through those cemetery's and going through the records at the Almira Township office, recording the people buried in the three cemeteries, and I'm in the process of putting what I have found , and finding on find a grave and creating a web site for all 3, Ounce I got started little did I know! and the more I wanted to know! so the process has started and I hope to have it done before my passing, so if your reading this and would like more Information on somebody I have posted I will be more the glad to help if I can

My Father
Dear Marc,
Please do not put pictures of my relatives on find a grave without my permission. You took dozens of pictures from my public Ancestry tree and put them all over other sites. You are not related to me and I don't know why you would do this.
Benzonia Cemetery has been photographed and indexed for a few years now and the pictures even have the lot and sec number. The index is in the Benzonia Library. You didn't even take pictures of the headstones, just the caretakers building. Please take my relatives pictures off of Find A Grave or I will report you to the website as using unauthorized material.

I looking for the resting place of Russell Ernest Webber, whose daughter knows where the cemetery is ...just not its name!!

To quote her..."Northeast of town past the Catholic Church not the one that is just before you get into town on the on the south" in Frankfort (Benzie co) MI.

Please can you tell me the name of the cemetery based on that information?

I only saw 2-3 cemteries list as being IN Frankfort. I don't want to just guess, and there are no telephone numbers to call on any of the cemeteries.

Thanks for listening, and hope you can help.

I'm writing to let you know you have the wrong information for Vernon Knight. He did not die in Sicily although he is buried there.

Thank you,

You have placed a "flower" instead of correcting the F.AG. The new way is even better. Please use it.

I know at times it can really try ones soul to wait and wait for corrections to take effect. I have some that go back to early 2012 still on the books!

You can always try that e-address of if all else fails.

Thanks for listening.

Anna Bedford BUNNER Duer
Mark, Anna Bedford BUNNER was the daughter of Capt. George BUNNER (1744/Philadelphia-1789/Savannah), one-time merchant in the West Indies trade, then privateer in the American Revolution. His wife was Jane CUYLER (dates unknown), daughter of Teleman CUYLER of New York, and his wife, Jeanne Latouche. Anna Bedford Bunner was born in Philadelphia about 1783, shortly before her father and family relocated to Savannah, Georgia. The BUNNER geneaology has been difficult to establish, since the name was often incorrectly transcribed as BONNER or BENNER. Her grandfather, Rudolph BUNNER (born circ 1711) was from the Palatinate (southwestern Germany), arrived in Philadelphia in Sept. 1732, was an innkeeper in the Old City/Philadelphia, where he died about November 1784.
