Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have researched my family tree for several years. My husband and I spent vacations going to different states looking up papers and photos. I lost my husband, brother, and twin sister who started me on the family tree in the last four years. Now it gives me something to do. I live in the middle of the oilfields in Taft California. I have two daughters, son in law and two grandchildren. I was raised in Seattle Wash. and Michigan. I am doing the Gross family and trying all the branches to see what I can find. I have information on the Wright side of the family that goes back to 946 i think. Some items are still in storage. I don't live very far
from the Westside Cem. and Midway Taft. Of course no one does case its such a small town. I do not work out of the house and find the family tree helps to take up the time of the long days.

Balfour Infant
The information you placed on Find-a-Grave related to an infant child of Albert and Emma Balfour with birth in 1855 and death in 1856 is impossible because Albert was born in 1855 and there is no Balfour infant buried in the cemetery with those dates.

Robert D. Balfour
The parents of the Robert (Bert) Balfour shown in Woodlawn Cemetery in Marine City, Michigan, was James S. and Kittie [Butlin] Balfour. His parents were Henry and Maria [Caswell] Balfour. Bert went down with the steamer Clemson when she sank in Lake Superior in1908. The stone is a memorial. No remains are buried in the cemetery.

Joan: Harry doesn't have a marker on his grave. What interest do you have in him? Thanks. Duke Thatcher

RE: Grave Names

You're welcome and yeah too many of the markers are unreadable, which is too bad.

RE: Benjamin A Overman

There are probably 200 graves in Hicksite Cemetery that are unreadable due to age.

RE: William McCleary
It is no problem and I am thankful to do it. As others have submitted photo's given dates etc. on the Find a Grave sites, it is the least I can do to add photo's and supply info as well. I have found that virtually 95% of the people buried around Maquon, Knox Co, Ill. are related. And my husband's family is no exception. Double cousins everywhere, and tying them all together is quite an undertaking. True never ending story. Talk more later. Nancy G
