Bio and Links
Bio Photo I became interested in genealogy and finding my roots many years ago. In 2005, I began working for a company that has several cemeteries located near it. Weather permitting, I started going out during my lunch hour and visiting these cemeteries and taking pictures. I then discovered the MI Tombstone Project were I could upload my photos and help others locate their ancestors.

I've been trying to add my photos onto Find-A-Grave but it is a longer process trying to upload to two different sites. I have faith that I will eventually get it done. Somewhere along the way I also became Michigan's Ingham County Keeper for Find A Grave. If you find one of my photos on MI Tombstone Project, please let me know and I will upload it to FAG.

If you happen to stumble upon any Vance, Kaloz, Torok, Meehan, Cosgriff, Quinlans, Davarns, McVeigh I'd love to hear from you.

Note: If you find a photo that I took click on that photo and you will see my notes. Sometimes you'll get lucky and find other ancestors that you didn't know about based on my comments.

Please read the Help with Find A Grave link before requesting transers. I'm pretty good about fulfilling requests outside of the "direct relatives within four generations" rule. I believe the memorials are in better hands with family and/or a descendant than with myself that is a stranger to the family history. Plus, I have discovered that it is easier for "living" relatives to find you if you are the manager of the memorial. However, if you demand the request versus asking politely and if you don't state your relationship you will not receive the memorial.

Thank you.

RE: McCarron
When I viewed the photo at 100%, the dates appear as:
Daniel - born Mar 7, 1811; died Dec 2, 1887
Mary - born May 19, 1831; died Jan 12, 1907

If does not allow you to view the photo more close up, I can send it to you email. Hope this helps.

RE: McCarron
You're welcome Terri! I just added the pictures to Daniel's memorial as well. You might have to ask the person that created both memorials to update with them with the birth/death information.

RE: Arol C. E. Harrop posting
Hi Terri,

Thanks for correcting that birth date for Arol Harrop.

We may be related but if my records are correct, we are very distant relatives. I am a 7th cousin 1 time removed of Irene Rapalee, the wife of Arol. There are conflicting records for Rapalee family descendants. Some say that the Rapalee's are descended from the Robyler family. I have Irene and other Rapalee's descending from Joris Jansen de Rapalie who came to the Dutch colony of New Netherland in 1624. I have Irene as being a descendant of Joris Jansen's 8 child, Jeroimus Rapalje. My family was descended from Joris Jansen's 11th and youngest child Daniel Jorise Rapalie.

RE: James DeLong
Hi Terri,
I did see your photo request for James' wife, too. Unfortunately, I did not see a marker for her near where I found James'. I'm sorry about that.

Arol C. E. Harrop posting
Please check the birth date for the subject individual that you posted. The posting shows he was born in 1787 and died in 1971. That would have made him 184 years old at death. Maybe is should be 1887?

Lakeview Cemetery in Bellaire, MI
I see that you took a very photo of the cemetery sign, and I'm in hopes that you live somewhat near.

Would you please either go to Lakeview or contact their offices? I am looking for an Andrew J Stark & family. His death certificate says he was buried in Bellaire on 29 Dec 1911.

I know that's a long time ago, and perhaps he might not even have a marker. I didn't start a memorial for him, but if you can find more proff of his final resting place, you can start it for us all.

TTFN Margaret
