|Bio and Links|
I am an retired electrical engineer who got into family research a few years ago. Now am an adict on finding family history I live in Michigan, which itself is a font of history, and have found that my family were pioneers and have famous connections, much of which I hadn't known about. Taking pictures of headstones connected to the family has helped tidy up family relationships, since with the headstone dates, a person can go and look up old newspapers for more data. Along with some other sites like ancestry.com, findagrave is a nice way to leave some of that history to be found by others.|

|Jana Marie Lashmit||RE: George Proulx|
Yes a challenge indeed!! Makes you wonder and of course probably no way of finding out for sure.
I just came across another memorial in Pellston I believe, and same thing. Forgot the name, maybe you'd know who they are if I could remember.
Lady was buried in Pellston as her obit says, but her husband was buried downstate and has her name on the stone.
|Jana Marie Lashmit||RE: Hoddinott's|
I searched like heck and didn't find anything on Wayne!! Glad you got some info.
Makes me feel bad when I come across a memorial and no info to link them to. :(

Curious if you seen any Budeks or Bertoni's when you were at this cemetery in Elmira. Pertaining to Jennie Budek-Bertoni. I got her obit from Greenwood but placed her in the wrong St Thomas cemetery. Obit says funeral was in Ann Arbor at St Thomas and burial following in St Thomas Cemetery. On Greenwood it says St Thomas in Elmira.

Many thanks! I am sharing this with Leonard’s granddaughter Kendra. She will know doubt share it with her father (Chuck). I appreciate you as always!

Hello! Just added their son to your memorials. I was surprised to learn he had died so young. Cheers.

P.P.S. Jim. I made the modern day photo of the buildinglook better by taking out the automobile, however, I can remove them if you have more appropriate photos of the building. Thanks again. I will be in touch soon.
|Petoskey History 1852-2002||RE: Grocery Building|
Hi, Jim! I so appreciate the message and great history. I took the liberty of enclosing a current day photo of the building thinking you would get a kick out of it––especially since you can see the hill where you once built forts. I’m pretty sure I know right where you mean. There's a small building there now (I think) but in many ways the hill looks the same.) I added this to George Saxon Danser Memorial as well, and will incorporate the history you discovered––tomorow I hope. Looking forward to writing to you and learning more about the sources you found and the red brick house on Grove Street I always called “God’s House.” Looking up at it from Petoskey and State, I thought it was in the sky. Many thanks!
|Petoskey History 1852-2002||Danser and The George Zipp Family|
George Saxon Danser owned Petoskey Wholesale Grocery Building, where George Zipp later had his lumber company, and then Dansers ended up across the street. (Opposite corner). was moved across the street in the late 1940s or 1950s,
I have not to date found any photos of the building. I think they should be here for both the Danser families and the Zipp families.
Here is what I have so far:
George Saxon Danser operated his company, Petoskey Wholesale Grocery Company, out of his block long three story brick building known by the same name. It was located on Petoskey, State, and Grove Streets. His building is listed on the National Historical Building Register.
At some time, Mr. Danser's business relocated across the street to 308 State, on the corner of Petoskey Streets, and also, became known as Danser and Company. It was eventually operated by Mrs. Danser's son, the late George W Danser. In 1969 it was sold to Frost-Pack (Sysco) Distributing Company.
HERE IS WHAT I FOUND ON THE NATIONAL HISTORIC REGISTER
Petoskey Grocery Company Building was added to the National Historical Building Register in 1986 - - #86002051)
Also known as George T. Zipp Lumber Company Building
616 Petoskey St., Petoskey
