Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am in the process of volunteering at/working with Owen Cemetery, (Thomas Township, Saginaw, MI) to record all of the names of the people buried there and photograph all grave sites.

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 people who are looking for family connections.

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, Bracey and Uptegrove.
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 several others have helped me.

Thanks for the heads up. I uploaded the first for a correction, then the next was uploaded through the Beta photo program.

If you see any more, please let me know.

Thanks again for taking the photo of Christopher Hardy's gravestone. It seems like it was over a year that I made the photo request, and I'm so glad you filled it. I am happy to see now that the correct year of birth is now on the memorial.

RE: Knepper cemetery
I am glad that you were able to see everything. I have been meaning to get the GPS coordinates for Knepper Cemetery corrected but since the pictures don't automatically upload the GPS coordinates in that area, it's not that easy. I wish that I had given you more details about how to find Knepper Cemetery--but even the street that it is on doesn't seem to have a name. ;)

Since Fountain Cemetery is in Hancock County, the Findlay-Hancock County library probably has a book of cemetery inscriptions. Sometimes they are helpful........sometimes not. But I guess the cemetery manager probably gave you details about how to find what you were looking for should you come back and try again.

Best wishes!

Jody

Thank You!
Thank you so much for taking a picture of the grave site of my great-grandmother Caroline (Kirsch) Butler. I was so delighted even though there was no headstone. I so appreciate the time and effort you took to complete my request.
Many Thanks.

RE: Alwin Meier in Clinton Grove
Janet,
Thank you for the information on Alwin Meier, I do not know if the other Meier s are related to Alwin. It is nice to have confirmed that he is there with Georgia Ann. I have not been able to find any records of Alwin before his marriage in 1913 to Georgia Ann, do know he died in Florida, so needed to confirm where he was buried. Thanks again. Sincerely, Sherry Paul Duty
