Bio and Links
Bio Photo There were about 7100 burials in the Eloise Cemetery which was used until 1948 for unclaimed remains. Records are missing from 1925-1934. Some remains were sent to the Detroit College of Medicine (later known as Wayne University College of Medicine) and also the University of Michigan. Those seeking death certificates for those who are buried in the Eloise Cemetery for the years 1935-1948 can obtain copies of them from the Burton Historical Collection of the Detroit Public Library for a nominal fee. An index is on the library website.

Permission is granted to use any of my photos of monuments or markers on the memorials provided it is not for commercial use. If you wish to add or correct information or links to existing memorials please use the edit tab.

As a general rule, transfer requests should be for direct relatives within four generations. This would be your great-grandparents, grandparents, parents, or siblings. Aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. do not fall into this category.

Peter McGraw
Memorial # 137276341. Do you have any more info about Peter McGraw? I am looking for my Gg-grandfather. Talk about a difficult man, his whole family is difficult. However, he went by McGraw sometimes and McGrath sometimes. There is another Peter McGrath/McGraw in the area with a wife of the same name as my Peter. That coupled with awful census records has made this family almost impossible. If you have more info about this Peter, his wife's name or any of his children it might help me to break down a thick brick wall.

Michalina Kruszewska
Thank you for posting the page for Michalina Kruszewska! Her maiden name was Kukowska and I could never find her death record until now (FamilySearch and this page) and I learned that she is the TWIN sister of my great-grandfather Michael Kukowski!

Samuel is one of my great, great uncles. You show him as buried in Eloise, Wayne, MI cemetery. I was wondering where you got his death information as I can not find it anywhere. If you can help me, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you...Amanda (Kline) Seng

Robert Arnold Wilson
Patricia, Robert Arnold Wilson North View Cemetery, memorial #121584561 Did the information you have on this memorial come from the cemetery records ? We have always assumed He was buried in the Eloise cemetery but haven't been able to find any records to prove or disprove where he is buried. Do you know if there is a headstone for him ? Thanks very much keep up the great work

RE: Julia Szumanski
Thank you for finally clarifying your request. I see that you've corrected the names that you declined several times as "inaccurate." I've sent some additional corrections for both memorials.

RE: Mary Thoman
The death cert isn't easy to find on seekingmichigan...I have always had her birth name as Marie Hoffman...her death cert lists her as Marie O. Thoman, buried at Holycross, father Charles Hoffman and mother Marie Zenker. I can email you the death cert if you would like.

I have never known the death date of my great great grandfather.. nor have I known where he was buried. Thank you for taking the photo of his gravestone and posting it here. This has meant so much to me.

Thank you
Hi Patricia,

Thanks so much for posting my grandparents, Rose and Paul Zagar's grave on this site. My aunt and uncle are there as well. I have seen this grave in person and it's helpful to see it here. Sincerely, Lisa
