Mabel Anderson Coutu
Greetings! I submitted a request to link Mabel to her parents who are buried in Sault Ste Marie, Michigan. All of Thomas and Annie's children were born in Michigan.

A Family Who Loves Genealogy
Cheery Hello sent your way!
I was inputting some memorials in Brick Church...not related to me. Usually I will spend some time linking together the families. Family is so important to all of us and it does make it nicer when you find a mother/father to link to. Whenever I come across a page of obituaries including the one I was searching for, I will take the time to clean them up and attach them to the memorial on findagrave that they belong to. Many later obits help us piece together the family. I will call the associated papers in order to obtain permission for posting the obits. All, so far, have giving me the OK!

It does appear that there are some individuals doing a thorough job on with the family but had the incorrect death place for James. I sent them a URL link to findagrave so that they could get a good death date and burial place. This burial information is SO important when working with New York/New Jersey because information is not readily available for births/death/marriages. It was interesting to see that "Hattie" his wife was actually "Rosemary" whose nickname was "Hattie"....even in the cemetery records they referred to her as Hattie! On the headstone it was Rosemary...smiling. They are just trying to make it a bit harder for us genealogists...wink!

You have done such a 'bang up' job that I simply had to let you know that we have found another member's death date!

Do hope this finds you doing well...this search is quite exciting!

RE: Beatrice Floyd and Baby Mowbray
Hi Normy,

I didn't remember whether I replied to your last message about Beatrice and Baby Mowbray, but I was able to find Beatrice in the Rose City Cemetery last week. A Mowbray cousin was able to verify that the baby girl was interred with her mother.

Thanks for looking into this for me as well!

RE: mary Douglass
Actually, I'm no relation to Mary, but she was principal of my school back in the day, and she was truly a wonderful lady. If you'd like me to transfer her back, I'd be more than glad to do so.
