David Kopkau
Hello MG, I went out to the Tipton/Franklin Twp. Cem. and did a quick walk around looking for David's stone, but I did not find it, so I called the funeral home from the obit. and they said he was cremated and they didn't know if he was buried or not. I have seen 2 references of him being at Tipton and one in Jackson, so like you said, leave your memorial where it is and perhaps someone will be able to fill in the blanks. Regards, JAD

You Are Welcome
Thank you so much for your reply regarding my comment to Chris West! I was hesitant to respond to him because I did not want to create conflict with anyone but at the same time, I felt as if he in some way invaded my privacy & was, for lack of a better word, "picking" on me. I appreciate Mr. West doing his part to make Find A Grave as accurate as possible but in viewing comments he has posted to others, I feel as if he just doesn't come across in a helpful manner but one that seems to belittle you. Although this is not the way I would ask for edits/corrections, we are all different & I do not believe Mr. West has anything other than good intentions on this site. I also want to say that he did bring to my attention two memorials in which I had incorrectly entered names & I happily fixed them. In my opinion, my personal pet memorials are just simply irrelevant to anyone outside of my family & how I list them is up to me! Thanks again. Hope you have a wonderful day! -Slick

Hey mourningglory ... nice to hear from you again. Please don't go out of your way as it's not an emergency. Just whenever you have time. You've certainly helped me out tons of times and I appreciate all you've done. Thank you.

RE: Thank you
You are more than welcome. For further reading just google his name and there is much to be found on this colorful individual.

"Railroad Jack"
I read your note on the memorial page for "Railroad Jack" and thought you should go back and revisit his page to discover why he held that nickname. Please visit #83122737. Kateri

RE: June
I am now, but I thought I would Ask in case you had one and didn't upload. I can go over there one day, unless you beat me to it. I'll prob wait a while so I can compile a list of missing relatives in the area and do one trip. Thanks.

Oh ok..I remember the Sarasins living behind my fathers House and the Kraemers just live a few houses down. But that's about it. Thank you and I appreciate it. Have a great Day. You don't have Betty Reich Headstone do you? She's buried in Advance Cemetery.
