Bio and Links
Bio Photo I got into this whole cemetery thing a couple years ago and now I'm hooked! Graving has taken me down some roads less traveled and I enjoy every minute of it. My wife and I love getting lost on the backroads of Michigan in search of lost or abandoned cemeteries just begging for exploration.

RE: Swanson Graves in Ishpeming
Thanks so much for the offer! The problem is that I'm not sure who else (other than Charlie is buried there. Would it be okay if I listed the possibilities, you let me know who you find then I could create burial records for whomever you find for you to attach the photos? It sounds kind of convoluted by I'm not sure who is there.

This is who could be there:
John A. Okesson 1864-1924;
Annie Okesson (his wife) 1872-after 1940;

Roy A E Okesson 1894-1989;
Oscar Edward Okesson 1894-1940;
Magnhild E Okesson 1897 - after 1940;

Carl Adolph Herbert Okesson 1890-1968;
Elsie Okesson 1890-1915;
Gertrude Okesson 1891-1971;
Carl Herbert Okesson 1914-1917;
John Edward Okesson 1919-1919; and
John E Okesson 1928-1995;

Thank you so very much for fulfilling this request. The last time I was in Ishpeming was in 1979. All the times I had been there visiting my grandparents my father never once took us by to see his grandparents graves.I greatly appreciate your efforts on my families behalf.

Swanson Graves in Ishpeming
They look great today. Thank you so very much!

Please let me know if you ever return to the Ishpeming Cemetery. I am very interested in whoever else from the Okesson family is buried there (probably Uncle John and Aunt Annie and I'm not sure who else).

Thanks again & kind regards,
LL Baker

Photos of Swanson Family Gravestones

I want to thank you ever so much for the lovely photos that you took and posted of my Grandmother's family's gravestones at the Ishpeming Cemetery. The photos with the autumn leaves are truly beautiful.

RE: Levandoski grave
I have the Tousignants that you found. Wilfred and Mary are my grandparents and Telesphore and Elizabeth are Wilfred's parents. I'm trying to find Wilfred's sons, Telesphore and Wilfred Jr. I was told that all of the boys and some of the girls are buried in Gwinn close by eachother. Thanks for all of the help you've been so far.
