My name is Austin Alanson Searfoss. I'm an English language artist/educator from the Michigan/Ohio area. My Grandma and Grandpa Midtgard were two of the most influential people in my life, and after losing both of them, I decided that I wanted to know more about my family's roots. This site will help me learn more about my family, and I hope to help others connect with their relatives too.|

I've only recently begun to research my family, and what you have shared here has been so helpful! My great-grandfather was Orie Searfoss. I've heard so many great things about him, and now I have been able to see pictures of him and his family. Thank you so much for sharing that.

Great work. I have been trying to research and build a family tree for my kids and grandkids. I didn't have much to go on, but this will help a lot. Thank you for all you are doing. Isabelle winkle was my great grandmother, Florence was my grandmother.

Great photo. Thanks for all you did, Pam
I am interested in the connection between Asa Piper and Andrew J Piper (1848-1936), who is buried in Grandview Memorial Park in Glendale, Los Angeles County, California. I had been working on an hypotesis that his parents were Simon and Sarah Piper, found in the 1860 Census in Kosciusko County, Indiana. I located the Lenawee Michigan listing for Asa Piper in 1850, 1870, and 1880. Have you any other sources for Andrew J Piper?
I don't know if you are aware that Andrew was a enlistee in the Michigan 11th Cavalry and transferred to the 8th Cavalry before mustering out in 1865.

I've loaded the pics for Eli & Harriet and I was wondering if you were comfortable with assuming that the stone next to Francis was indeed Samuel?? and if so should I go ahead and fufill the photo request for him with a picture of the family plot and one showing the Francis stone with the broken one next to hers??

Hi Austin.. I located Francis Turrittin for you and unfortunately, the stone next to hers, which I assumed to be her husband Samuel is broken down to the ground.. but I also wanted to let you know that beside their 2 stones was another Turrittin, Eli 1852-1923 and his wife Harriet E 1858-1932.. I thought maybe he was named after his grandfather Eli Oliver.. so I snapped a closeup pic of his stone as well as a plot pic to show location of graves.. If you want to creat a memorial for Eli & Harriet Turrittin.. I will load the picture for them.

Your Welcome. I just put the correct Latitude and Longitude on the comments. Somehow the first corrdinates were off on Dixon Rd. Google Maps and 41.911497, -83.689277 will show it just north of a big tree. "We really don't know who we are until we know where we come from". (Old Jewish Statement)
