Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in 1958 in Burbank, California. My family returned to Grand Rapids, Michigan when I was three years old. At the age of 18 I became a genealogist and since that time have found 466 ancestors and thousands of cousins. I have located 133 ancestral graves using I began teaching high school history in 1991 which I still do. I married Marie Gingrich on October 13, 2001 in Cocolamus, Pennsylvania. We have two Children, Elizabeth and Henry. I use Findagrave in my history classes.

Allester Smuts
I changed his name back to Allester. IN marriage records show him as Allester. Gravestones are not always correct as to proper names. Many times it is a nickname or middle name on gravestone,not a legal name.

RE: Ann Fetterman
Thanks, Kirk for your prompt response and correction. I was hoping you might have the spouse's name for Eliza. Will keep looking. In the meantime many thanks for your Find A Grave contributions.

RE: Baldry marker photo
Once the weather warms up I will get you the foot stone photos. John's is fine but the other will need to be edged as it is half sunken into the ground. As winter has set in here I won't have these photos until March at the earliest. Once I get them I will let you know.

Baldrey in Forest
I have attached the photo for of your photo request for John Baldry. There is afoot stone for him and his wife there but due to the wet snow, slush and water I wasn't able to get a pic this time. I will get them when the conditions improve. I will also fix the photo on the memorial but I won't be able to do so until next sun or mon.
