Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Daughter of a Union Veteran of the Civil War. (DUVCW) My Great Great Grandfather, John Delong fought in the Civil War. I am unable to find his grave. He died in Spencerville, Ohio on June 17, 1895 at the age of 84. I volunteer at the Grand Rapids, Michigan Home for Veterans.

I am an United States Air Force Veteran.

Also I am the secretary for the Grand Rapids Civil War Round Table. And I am a director on our newly formed group, Friends of Michigan Veterans' Homes. We raise money for the little extras for our Vets in the Homes.

It is hard for me to pass a cemetery without stopping. Lucky for me, my husband has the same interests.

Please if you request a transfer, please use the EDIT key. Also send me your ID number.

Not asking to transfer.

I am related to the Galloway family through Almeda A Lamphere Galloway (1860 - 1938) who was my 1st cousin 4x removed that died in Grand Rapids and married Andrew J Galloway (1844 - 1923)who also died in Grand Rapids, MI. They were married in Wyoming, MI on 3 Nov 1877. I could be related to Pat Galloway, but I would need more information to verify.

Hi Beverly,
Let me do a little more checking on Thom Ostrander. The #83701513 is off 7yrs which is not unusual. They have the right father but, the wrong mother. I will go though my Ostrander Family Book. And do some checking in a few other places. thanks wanda

Thomas Buskby
Hello, I am researching Thomas Buskby. Since you volunteer at the Veterans Home, I was hoping you could help me with an answer to who his wife happened to be. Was her name Katherine? I look forward to your reply. Thank you very much.

RE: Photo request
Was regarding photo request for Frank Howe. Did not notice "flower" notation. grave marker. His son I am referring to is Earle, child death. He has a marker, but may not be near the family...

Photo request
Hi Beverly;
I am so sorry to send you on a wild goose chase, it appears. Just wondering if you had the info that a son is buried in "Block G, Lot 34, Space 5" (child death - which sometimes are not near the family) or if there is just no marker. Being a volunteer myself, (& visiting out of town locations and hunting for relatives) I know how tough some searches are! ANYWAY, thanks for trying. I will ask an aunt what she knows. Maybe it is known that there never was a marker.
Again, thank you, I DO appreciate your effort. (:

Hi Beverly, yes it is the same and thanks so much for pointing that out.

I'll send an edit to add Julietta to his memorial as his wife, I am still looking for his second wife Louise and will add her when found.

Also, his death certificate shows his date of death as April 3, 1926 and I did have that listed incorrectly as April 23.

Thanks! MJ

Major Leonidas S. Scranton
Is there a family history, obit or bio for Maj Leonidas S. Scranton # 84217921 in any of DUVCW records? If not, Where in Kent County would I need to go to look for his family history? I would be interested in knowing the names of his parents.
