Bio Photo September 20, 2013.
I just discovered this site and am learning a LOT about my family history.
My family's names are: Knepper, Graham, Pringle, McNicol and Bracey.
Thanks to this site, I found and 'met' my father's family. No easy task, when his mother died in childbirth after having his youngest brother, and his dad left them. The children were too young to know much about them except that their mother was from Caro, MI. My aunt remembered that their mother's maiden name was the same as her married name...that's how they met. They were introduced by someone else with the same last name.
Thanks to all of you who do this! It meant the world to me to 'find' them. Now I'm on a quest to find out more.....and in the process I want to help others...just like someone helped me.

One year later...
It's become important to me to provide as much info. as possible for anyone looking for family members, so pardon my edits....but I'm hoping they'll help people find the correct family members, or just add info for those people looking for family connections.

John Green marker at Owen
Hi Janet. When I was at Owen Cemetery, there was a marker for John Green. I put a transcription on the memorial. I do hope you are able to locate it. Twist

RE: ANOTHER John Chalenko in Forest Lawn!
I'd be most grateful if you can resolve the mystery! I know very little about this part of the family. Thank you for you kind offer to help solve it.

RE: ANOTHER John Chalenko in Forest Lawn!
Thanks so much for all you information. I hope it wasn't too much trouble gathering all this.

Peter and John "Chilenko" are brothers. John and Eunice are related. Peter and John had a brother Michael who was John's (husband of Eunice) father.

My family is from Saginaw, but I live on the other side of the state. My great grandfather is Michael.

I guess I'll have to call DPW and see if I can get it straightened out. Thanks so much.
