Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hey there Gravers! I'm a 35 year old Semi-Professional Genealogist and Local Historian with a past in cemetery operations...Hillcrest in Jackson, MI, Albion Memory Gardens, Albion, MI and Forest Lawn in Dimondale, MI. I know those cemeteries extremely well....especially Hillcrest in which most ancestors on my mother's recent side reside....I'm also very familiar with St John's Catholic, Woodland, Mt Evergreen, and Roseland in Jackson, well as many of the local rural cemeteries...many of which I have family in.

I am also currently doing work with Presque Isle County (North Eastern Lower Penninsula Michigan)

Please feel free to contact me with questions, or if I may be able to help you! As you can tell, I am so very passionate about genealogy and the history that lies within a cemetery's gates. That being said, I would love to help anyone I can!

I am researching the surnames FALL STRASSBURGER ROHRER PEMBERTON ARNEY OTREMBA and PRINCE among others. Happy hunting!

Carol Davis Jenkins memorial
I just got an SAC stating that the burial that I have for Ms Jenkins at Crown Hill has the wrong cemetery....that's when I noticed that you are sponsoring her memorial! Because you have done this would you like for me to transfer her to your care? Also I sent back a message saying I would need proof of a different burial location before I changed it.

I might be able to fill this request as well. I wasn't aware this site was even there, so I wonder if you could provide a few more details about where it is in relation to the cemetery or other landmarks.

Bell photos
Hi Bill,

I've uploaded the photos for the two memorials I added to Bell Cemetery. I think you're right about the "Clark" stone belonging to Mary Clark -- it's not easy to read but you can just make it out. I'll go ahead and upload that, although I might eventually try for a better photo. I was getting eaten alive by mosquitoes the day I snapped those pictures, ha ha.

RE: Bell Cemetery
Hi Bill,

I'm afraid I don't have any additional info about the folks I added but I do have pictures of their grave stones, which I intend to upload when I get a chance.

There was a third stone with a name, which may or may not be different from one of those on the modern marker. It seems to be a "Clark", but unless I can make out the first name I'll hold off creating a new memorial -- it might simply be the original marker of one of the Clarks already memorialized. (It's not the best picture, either. I might go back and try to take another.)

There are also a number of cross-shaped markers with no names on them, but unless someone back in the day made a map, it's impossible to tell to whom they belong. Might you have any information regarding the cemetery's plot layout?

RE: Prince Family
hello bill,
it appears as though we may be related. i have a tree on ancestry and i will go on in a day or so and check out the info you gave me and see if i can tweak it out a little and give you more info. my direct line comes from william and rachel murphy/prince. there is alot of controversy about those 2 and if there is any if at all connections to john william prince married to mary giles. my prince family came from virginia then to lawrence county, ky. i believe there is a connection to the georgia and south carolina families. let me get a little more info to give you and i will get back to you. you can email me at:
thanks for contacting me,
