Bio and Links
Bio Photo The descendants of the old settlers, those who cleared the land and first upturned the wild sod to the sun, should see that the doings of those early years are fittingly remembered and recorded.
It was once remarked by a great writer that those who take no interest in the deeds of their ancestors are not likely to do anything worthy to be remembered by their descendants.

Please leave flowers or memorials on my memorials, I believe everyone deserves flowers, and I have a great family. Thank you in advance.
A BIG thank you to those who send histories, death notices, obits and links to add to the memorials. They are wonderful additions.

Please read Find A Grave's Transfer Requirements before requesting a transfer "THE FIND A GRAVE GUIDELINES FOR TRANSFERRING MEMORIALS ARE: Spouses, Parents, Brothers and Sisters, Children, Grand-children, Grandparents, and Great-grandparents. Please use the "EDIT" tab to ask for a transfer BUT PLEASE do no ask for a transfer that is not within these guidelines and PLEASE STATE YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO THE DECEASED.
Putting requests on this site you will be ignored, and erased. Ignorance is not bliss it is just embarrassing for you.

For extended family members you can add
Virtual Cemeteries as we have done.

PLEASE USE the "EDIT" TAB ON THE UPPER RIGHT SIDE OF THE MEMORIAL TO SEND CORRECTIONS AND REQUESTS FOR TRANSFERS. Will gladly add any obits and will add links to family members. "

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out On polished, marble stone.
It reaches out to all who care It is too late to mourn.

You did not know that I exist You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our heart contracts and beat a pulse Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled One hundred years ago Spreads out among the ones you left Who would have loved you so.I wonder if you lived and loved,I wonder if you knew That someday I would find this spot, And come to visit you.

Rita Cool Mlynarski
I suggested an edit, but want to explain. Rita Cool Mlynarski was my step mother. My Dad was married to her for only two years before she died. 1985-1987. Before that, she was married to Robert A. Cool, same cemetery in Michigan.
I was wondering if you can add her maiden name, which is Derouin. I don't know how you want to handle her last name. Cool was her name for close to 40 years, and Mlynarski for 2 years. She legally died with Mlynarski. I wonder if you can hyphenate it.
Thank you,

Can you check your dates? Either your birth date is wrong or my death date. #87700989

RE: John E Gifford

I stopped and looked at the gravestone and I would say (80% sure) that the death year was 1810. The second one was a little wider than the first one and slanted a little differently. Maybe the stone around the 4 deteriorated to make it look like a 1.

I have a close up of the death year if you would like me to send it to you.

Good luck,
