Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired programmer, interested in Genealogy, Computers and Traveling. I live in the Detroit Area and will be more than happy to visit any cemetery and take a picture of a grave of interest. Any of the pictures or other information that I have posted to can be used by anyone for whatever volunteer purpose they would like. You may not use the pictures if they will be used for a make for profit purpose. Other than family members any memorials will be transferred to you if requested. I would prefer transferring the memorial to you than to add or make changes to the memorial. Also please give me a little time to transfer the memorials. Thanks

Re: Photo request for Smith Butler (1825) at Mt Hope
I submitted the following problem report on this request:

I know of no evidence that this person, who died before the cemetery was open, is buried here. I have tried to contact the creator of the monument, but they did not respond. One of his wives (Tabitha) is buried here but I don't think he is.

Amy E Smith Frost
Hello Jack,
Thanks for all the work that you do for people looking for ancestry answers! I have a favor to ask. On the headstone for Amy Frost #15033040 in East Berlin Cemetery, there is an age listed, but I can't read the number of years. Also, there appears to be an inscription at the bottom of the headstone. Would it be possible for you to take another look or possibly see if you can read it from your original photographs?
Thanks in advance! Anna/Amy is my third great grandmother and I'm trying to resolve some questions as to her lineage.
Thanks so much,
Sue McDaniel

Alva Butler #8123061
Hello Jack,

I sent you an edit on Alva Butler. I have asked that his link to his mother be changed because she moved to Michigan and was living with him in 1850, the MI records show that she died there in Mar 1860, and she is buried in the cemetery with him.

Her name was Abigail Rudd.

The current "mother" linked to Alva is Abigail Rudd, daughter of Increase Moseley, whose death date is all wrong. So, either that's the wrong Abigail Rudd, or the inscription on the family monument is wrong. But in any case, she wasn't buried in Vermont.

Would you consider transferring Lawrence "Pink" Leary's Memorial to me? He was my Great Uncle and I would like to add info, etc. My Grandmother,
Gertrude Alice Leary, was his sister.

Huldah Butler
Dear Jack:
I was wondering if you would transfer Huldah Butler to me? I am related to her via my great-great-great grandfather Daniel Voltaire Bissell? Her maiden name is Huldah Bissell. Thank you so much!

Forest Lawn Cemetery
Thank you Jack for leaving the photo of the cemetery on my brother William (Bill)Smith's memorial page. It is my plan to some day go to Detroit and take a photo of his head stone. I don't get down that way very often and the area isn't that good to go into.

Thanks again,
Brenda Smith Jewell
