Hello -

Do you use the resources of the Western Michigan Genealogical Society and the Kent County Genweb? I have found lots of information on both. I have been a member of WMGS for over 30 years and knew personally the woman who did tons of work on the Genweb. The information is spotty, of course, but well worth searching if you have not done so.
Many years ago my family had a cottage at Silver Lake and attended St Patrick's in Parnell in the summer. I remember the Heffernan name from there.

I am doing research on the donors of the stained glass windows at the Cathedral of St Andrew. One of them, the large window of the Ascension, was given by Catherine McCaffery, a niece of Father McManus. I am having trouble finding out anything about her. I do not even know her death date so that I could look for a possible obituary. Would you have any family history of Catherine?
I am doing this work with the approval of Father Geaney, the rector at St Andrew's. Feel free to contact him if you have any privacy concerns.

Maria Bigler
Maria Bigler's second husband was William S. Wilkinson, so that was her married name when she died. John Blackford Israel was her first husband.

What is your source for this burial?

RE: Janet Sutherland McDonald
Hi :) I took as close a look as possible of the photo I have of the gravestone, but other than the more obvious AE 59 years just below the date and above the tiny verse at ground level, I regret I can't make it out either.

The transcription book published by the local historical society in the 1990s, only recorded the primary details - not verses - of any of the inscriptions they did.

Aluminum foil is a good tool for impressing on a stone to recover text that is difficult to read -- press on gently but firmly, pull away gently, and a mirror-image is left in the foil (which of course can later be smoothed out and re-used after recording the words). If you get a chance to visit Auld Kirk again, you might take along a garden trowel (to remove a bit of the soil and grass) and a roll of foil to try it out. :D

Foil is still fairly acceptable amongst gravers, although there are beginning to be nay-sayers, apparently. Several other previously used methods are _strict_ no-no's: chalk, soap, shaving cream -- all these leave residue on the surface and contribute to deterioration of the stone itself. Rubbings with paper and pencil/crayon are still done in Britain, but eventually multiple rubbings wear away at the stone as well. Foil used gently appears still to be on the yes side. Check the Find-a-Grave Forum on Preservation methods for current opinions and suggestions.

All the best,
=]) Beth
