RE: Delia versus Ella
Hi Scott, I understand, work does get in the way of hobbies. Thanks for the transfer. I will make corrections and research to find out who Ella is and find her history. I think Find A Grave is such a nice way to honor our ancestors, Thanks, Sharon

RE: Harbor area cemeteries
Hey there,

Good to hear from you. Actually my b/f lives just a mile from Lakeview/HolyChildhood. We both have family there :) I believe the markers you are referring to are by the cross? Seems like there are 5 there? Many other NA's buried there as well.

Kinda down with allergies n bronchial pneumonia right now so wont be up there soon but will definatley take pics for you :)

RE: Delia versus Ella
Hi, thanks for responding so quickly. The discrepancy is Clarence’s mother. Delia Jessie (Hall) Manitowash is his correct mother, sometimes listed as Della. Delia was married to John Manitowash, son of John Wing Manitowash
Clarence J. Manitowash #81829357 was John and Delia's son. You have listed Ella Hall as his mother and Joseph as his father.
Ella was married to: Joesph Hall # 63586753

Ella Hall #63586746
Delia Jessie Hall Manitowash #148055644

Harbor area cemeteries

Just wanted to say hi. Been in Harbor a lot. Took pics at St Nich Cemetery and plan to hit others this summer. If there are any pics you need from other cemeteries up that way let me know. Doing one cemetery at a time. I will make a list. Hope all is well. Keep in touch.

Though nothing pertains to what I research, I find the in-depth work that you do to be pertinent to the history of the Civil War and the State of Michigan. Thank you in sharing on Find a Grave the vast information you have accumulated. May those little nuggets continue to surface and be preserved for all to learn.
