|Bio and Links|
I was born and raised in Big Rapids, located in Mecosta County, Michigan. I am retired and love to spend my time running the roads, taking pictures of family burial sites across the state. Anyone needing a photo of a grave site anywhere in the State of Michigan may contact me via e-mail and I will do my best to find the site and photograph it for you.|
I currently live in Clare County. I spend my leisure hours photographing headstones and researching courthouse and township burial data in an effort to update and complete the Find A Grave memorial pages for all of the cemeteries in Clare County and surrounding counties. If you have any additional information, pictures, obituaries, etc. that you would like to share about any of the people that I have added, please contact me. I would love to add it to their page. If you are in need of any research from the Clare County area, I would be very happy to assist you.
I would also be very happy to transfer the pages of any of your relatives or loved ones. Nothing would make me happier than to transfer the sites of every memorial I have set up to the loving care of family!!!

|Curtiss48858||RE: adding obits|
I do, so if you have any for my memorials please send them along and I will add them. Thanks!
|Thomas Ladner||RE: Jones obits|
Note: Genealogy Room at the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library is nearly remodeled. This coming Monday, I hope to go down and pull a few obituaries.
Hopefully, we can keep chipping away! and get some of these Midland, Saginaw & Bay Find A Grave memorials updated & linked.
Wis to thank everyone who responds positively! One shouldn't fear posting full text obituaries. Shoot, most Library Websites do so... Also! how abt. obitmichigan.com (?)
Does one have to be Paid to be Authorized? I think! not... also who normally Authors & Pays for the Obituary to be Published in the Local Paper in the First Place... (Obituaries are meant to be Shared & Seen by everyone) Microfilm was never meant to be the perfect way to Preserve our Old Newspapers. Each time a Roll gets loaded. More that Film gets Scratch or possibly destroyed.
Thanks Cathy! for all you do...
|Stephen Cantrell||RE: Schornack transfer|
Thank you so kindly!! Sure appreciate it! Best to you!
|Thomas Ladner||Request! for Samuel & Phebe Jones obits.|
Note: I just extended/linked up some of my research into Warren Twp., Cemetery with this couple below:
Samuel Appleton Sheppard Jones Find A Grave # 125933730 & his wife: Phebe C. Baker Jones Find A Grave # 125933708 their daughter Muriel married Gilbert (Gib) Lane & they were very admired here in Beaverton, when I was growing up. Gib was famous for his painted scenic cards.
I was wondering if you had obituaries for Samuel & Phebe. Or next time... I get to the Midland Library, I'd like to get those obit's.
|Thomas Ladner||RE: Harris memorials|
I was just at the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library yesterday. They are majoring updating the Library with New Doors, Walls, Carpeting etc. all the Microfilm Machines/Genealogy Room. Is down probally for a week. If we can manage just to get a Memorial started & base on what stated as for a Death year for the Harris Names. I can look up their Obituary Index and pull-up the Obituary next time I go in. Just feed me the info... :) Thanks
|Thomas Ladner||RE: Homer Harris in Warren Twp Cemetery|
Note: What ever you can take care of... Help yourself! I'm at #283 Scan Obituary for a Anna Marie McClary Hoffman MDN obituary I'm trying to process. I still probally have another 500 Images to look at/thru. So, if we work together! many memorials throughout Midland County & beyond will definately start making sense to so many of us.
Please let me know! what I need to do...
Thank You! Cathy
We are working it... :)
|Thomas Ladner||Re: Homer Harris 125860282|
Cathy, your doing a great job. On filling up Blanks in Warren Cemetery. Note: I've just now added a Find A Grave memorial for a Homer Harris. # 125860282 it says: His mother was Myrtle Harris. I can't find her on Find A Grave or identify the father. They must also be of: Coleman. Can you help?
Hello Cathy! Can you tell me about the site that you cite at the end of some of your obituaries - it has cmich.edu at the end. Is that a site that is available through the university and if so, is it available to the public? Thanks so much for any information you can provide.

Thank you so much for the speedy transfer to me.
|Thomas Ladner||RE: Obits on Find A Grave|
Either method is fine... Sometimes I can't update full Birth/Death Location. Since, some Counties have same name.
Oh, I just got back! from the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library where I used my Portable Scanner on their 3 Ring Binder full of MDN Clippings of Obituaries ranging from 1978 to 1980.
Once I process nearly 800 Scans. Folks will be seeing me sending tons of Suggestions to update several memorials on Find A Grave.
Let's keep up the great work!
Note: I'm attempting trying to extend my help with the Big (3) Cities of Bay, Midland & Saginaw. Last year I joined both Bay & Saginaw Gen Society and later this year... I will be a Member of Midland also! Just waiting for the Start of their Fiscal year/month to begin.
I can guarantee you this is going to be a great year for all of us. :) As long as no one complains abt. Full obituaries being added. Which, to me is necessary to make families connections thee best possible way!
