I first found Find-A-Grave while doing genealogy research. This is still my main focus, as I am far from done following my family lines! Many of my lines are Dutch, as you might guess from my picture. I also have roots in Ireland and England.|
I have also come to appreciate the artistry and history of cemeteries, and love to come upon markers that show the personalities of the people interred. Graves are not just names and dates...they are a bridge between the past and the present, and a place for loved ones to express their feelings and memories.
I am happy to take photos for others if I can. My memorials are all family for the most part. Please contact me if you are family too, so we can share information!

I transferred Royal Osterhout to you so you can make the changes. It looks like maybe the grave stone reads 1901 and I misread it because it is partially covered by the grass. I'll let you make whatever changes need to be made. Good luck! -Carolyn
|Marni Turnbull Rose||Lulu Osterhout|
Thank you for catching the date mistake on Lulu's memorial. I have made the correction and also added a picture of her information which is displayed on the family monument.
normally i dont transfer if your not related. but if someone that is related comes asking i please ask you to hand them over.

It's great what old maps can tell you! I love to look at them! I checked out the map at the Kalamazoo Genealogical Society's website. It was a little hard for me to read but still it was great to see it. It helps me to find the actual location (or possible location) of the residences too. I thought it might show the church that is associated with Pleasant Valley Cemetery but I didn't see it. (Pleasant Valley Cemetery is a church cemetery but I can't remember what denomination it is.)
Adding the names to Pleasant Valley Cemetery is a good guess. If I make it out to the cemetery this spring, I'll check more carefully for the names and for broken markers and empty foundations. I'm always excited to find a marker under a bush or some other place that hasn't been investigated.
Hope our weather breaks soon so I can go look! Thanks for sharing.
I am wondering if your Wiley family is at all connected to mine. I am having a hard time with my Wiley family as it involves Canada for the generation before and I cannot seem to connect all dots. Did your Wileys come from Norfolk (or Middleton) ontario Canada?

I am also descended from Jan Oosterhoudt, Sr. I would be more than happy to add any additional information you may have to his or any of the Oosterhoudt's memorials that I created.

Mary Smith was married to Reuben Smith. I have connected them. Hopefully that helps.

I also added photos for Wilford P Anderson and Vernon Anderson which are on the sides of the same stone as Angeline.
