Bio and Links
Bio Photo My husband, Mack Junior Foster, passed away in June 17, 2003. We would have been married for 25 years on Sept. 2, 2003. We have a son from our marriage and I have a son from a previous relationship.

I have been searching for my grandfather, Alexander George Mikedis. I have found out that he is buried in Jacksonville, Florida.

So if anyone else is searching for any Mikedis's please contact me. I would love to find someone else who might be interested in the Mikedis name.

My dad always wanted to find out about his father, but he was never able to find out about him, so even thou my dad is dead, I am still his mouth piece.

NOTE: I receive many e-mails for the flowers that I add to the Memorial Site for other loved ones on FindAGrave site.

People wonder if I know them. I tell them "no", that I just enjoy adding flowers to others loved ones.

I love adding "flowers" to FindAGrave.

This is a great hobby to have.

Re: William H. Park
You're very welcome for the headstone photo; I do not know William. I was visiting my family in MI and the Plainfield Cemetery is near my aunt's house. I took over 200 headstone photos (in this cemetery) in July 2012 and am trying to get them all entered. I, too, enjoy Find A Grave, I've found so many of my relatives around the country; that is why I help others by taking pictures and entering them. Kind Regards

RE: Edwin Mikedis
You're welcome. I believe the markers are marble. I've only seen the metal ones at non-military cemeteries. Those are fastened to the back of family monuments or flat to the ground.

RE: Alexander Mikedis
What I have are some marriage and divorce records. If you send me your e-mail, I'll get them off to you.

RE: Hudson
Indeed you do. Look at Byron Watson Hudsons memorial to see thephoto of the house. I put it on awhile ago and then forgot. You can copy it if you want to.

RE: Hudson
OOPPS, when I replied earlier, I mistook your Byron for a brother to my Byron. Now I am realizing it is my Byrons son and brother to my G-Grandmother Helen. I do have a photo of their house. Will dig it up and post it.

RE: Hudson
This is confusing to me...Why would a mother name 2 sons Byron? My GG-Grandfather was Byron Watson and yours was Byron Edwin Hudson. Unfortunatley, I have no photos of your Byron. I think they called mine Wat for short. Sorry I cant help you, but keep in touch, you never know who else is out there looking for the same folks.

Unfortunatley, I did not know any of the Hudsons. However my grandmother Helen Brendel Sanford, had cousins she talked about. I believe they were your Byrons daughters. I am just starting to research this family. It seems as thought they were some of the first settlers in the Milford area. Happy to help anytime.

RE: Beautiful message
You are very welcome, it is an honor to visit your beloved Husband.
Thank you for your beautiful messages.
I found it , one day when I was feeling so lost, and I knew Marty wanted me to have it to remind me that he's with me , I can't really explain with words, but deep in my heart I believe my Husband is in a perfect place and one day when is time for me to go,we will be reunited, it was hard to understand at first when he died, but my closeness with God makes me believe and see life in a different expect.
Blessings to you .
Love, Liberty
