Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing my family and my husband's family reaearch since 2008. I would love to hear from anyone who has connections. The surnames I am researching include, Bruman, Houck, Knoche, Lange, Grobbel, Dice, Howe, Seasons, and Collins. Locations include Detroit, Warren, Centerline, Lapeer, North Branch, Burnside, Five Lakes, and Kings Mill in Michigan, McLeod County in Minnesota, Shippensburg, Pennsylvania and North Adams, Massachusetts.

I have established many memorial pages as I learn the burial sites. If I have established a memorial page for someone who is dear to you, please let me know and I will do a transfer. I am not related to anyone in Tennessee, so I am willing to transfer any Tennessee memorials. Please make your request through the edit tab.

Although Find a Grave allows records such as death certificates or military documents to be uploaded on the memorial pages, I would prefer you not upload them if they are findable online. It is important to leave that space available for items like photos of the person and their marker. The information found on these documents can be summarized in the biography. It is nice to open a memorial and find a cemetery photo, marker photo, or even a personal picture. I feel like I am actually virtually visiting the final resting place.

Hello Louise,

Thanks for contacting me. Yes, I too have seen the information submitted at the site regarding Jacob's mother. While this is my direct line, I am ashamed to admit that I have not done much detailed research. I do have a copy of Conrad Hartung's will, and while his daughter Anna Barbara is mentioned, it does not mention her surname.

I have not been able to locate a will or a marriage for George Ranck.

I am aware, Note: Maiden name from D. Cert. son George is Forchoke(hand written) on son David it is spelled Forepaugh (typed) both may be wrong, still searching. On Find A Grave there are not many names spelled Forepaugh, just 3, none shown on Gravestones.
Neither are listed in History of Cumberland or Franklin Counties, Found 1 spelling Forcheck in Indiana Co. Pa., 3 Feorchak (czechoslovakia) in Allegheny Co. Pa. Still searching.

re: Memorial# 64136187

Hi Louise,

I do the old graveyard tour at this cemetery.

I am sorry I cannot help you on his parents or on the identification of his mother. Usually folks send me information to be added to memorials unrelated to me and I do so. I usually note that in the notes field on the memorial page when I am given information, so I am uncertain about this one. If you feel strongly about your research, please send a SAC via the Edit function and I'll change the bio and credit you. But to be more certain about this/your lineage, you may want to contact the North Andover Historical Society as they have a wealth of information on the early families of the town.

I corrected Aden Card for you. I originally didnt make the bio. Since I (and friends) were cleaning up the cemetery and were trying to correct everything. The person that did transferred them all to me. Some slipped thru not getting corrected. At one point someone had contacted me and told me there is a grandson(?) named Aden that is supppsed to buried in the cemetery also but there is no headstone for him. We did find 2 makers with A.C. on them but they were tossed around from vandals and one was broke in half. We placed them by the family hoping thats where they are. There was a pile of markers just tossed all together in a coner of the cemetery most of them were broken

RE: Bowers Family
Hi Louise,
Yes, please, if you would transfer Amelia that would be great! I didn't realize she was there, too. Her second husband was the brother of my dad's paternal great grandfather. Charles' wife, Lucy, was the sister of my dad's maternal grandmother. That is how my grandmother and grandfather met, they both were spending some summer time at the Bowers farm in 1927. Small world!

I haven't really researched the Bowers family much. Do you have an Ancestry account? I have several photos of Charlie and his brother, John, on his profile on my tree, along with a photo of Uncle Charlie with my grandfather on the farm. I don't know much about his family at all.

Let me know if you'd like me to email some photos. :)

Hi Louise,
I am from Center Line and just today found my great-grandfather's information from Mt. Elliott Cemetery posted here by you. Thank you so much for doing that! My grandfather's name was also John - he is buried in Battle Creek. I am researching through -- maybe we have some information to share!!
