Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love American history, I like dealing with names, and I love solving problems. It was just a matter of time before I got into genealogy! 

None of the memorials I have posted are my relatives, and hence I have not researched them. I do try to add some detail to memorials though in an effort to identify the person. 

If you want to write me about any of the memorials I've created, please leave a message on this page. To suggest a correction or edition for a particular memorial, please use the Edit button at the top of its page. I do not automatically approve all suggestions, meaning I need some sort of proof of new information. If I can't find any proof myself, I will ask you for it.

If I have posted a memorial of one of your relatives and you would like the memorial transferred to you, please use the method that FindaGrave has provided, which is thus: Go to the memorial page and click the Edit button. Of the choices that follow, click on "Suggest any other correction or addition." This will bring up a message box for you to write me, and the email FindaGrave sends will include a link to the memorial as well as to your profile page. Simply write me a note requesting the transfer, and tell me how you are related to the person.

If there is an article that I have posted that you can use, feel free to copy it. All articles are in the public domain, that is, not copyrighted anymore, so you do not need my permission to use them. You'll find the source of the articles in the picture's caption.

Last, any gravestone pictures I shot myself as well as I could. Please copy and use them! Post them in your family tree on Ancestry or wherever. That's why I took them.

FindaGrave is a great website even though it's basically all about deaths! Still, it makes me think of the verse "And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have life." (I John 5:11)

RE: Robert Irwin Henry
Could you direct me to the record that shows Melissa marrying the Smith? I am assuming you are referring to the 1900 census for the adopted child. Millie Henry is there with two of her sons, her twins Benjamin and Grover Henry next door is her son Frank Smith with his wife Anna the "adopted" boy is actually my grandfather Columbus. I do have the adoption papers but the smith's did not adopt him. If you found this information in another area I would be extremely interested in seeing it. Thanks a bunch.

Hi Julia,

Yes, I would be interested in this memorial... Also, if you have his wife & child, I would be interested in them as well... That way, everyone will be linked up to one another...

Thank You & Cheers,

RE: Robert Irwin Henry
May I ask what kind of records you saw? The only think I have is his Death Certificate and Birth Record.

Thanks again

RE: Robert Irwin Henry
I would take over the memorial if you like. This family is very complicated, Robert has 4 step siblings from Millie's first husband Richard Smith, and 4 brothers with William and Millie. One of those brothers death cert. and his half sister's death certificate both give Minzey as their mother's maiden names. As well as her oldest son from first marriage wedding lines giving her the same maiden name. Yes I have Melissa as her given name from the Henry boys birth records, but I also have Emily as a given name from her third marriage record, I usually just call her Millie, she is my big brick wall on a lot of instances.
Thank you

Thanks for asking about sources
I was beginning to think I was the only person interested in sources before posting middle names and birth places and family links. I appreciate that you do as well :)

Found it. His daughter's passport lists her father as Henry Richard Powers. (Her name was Caroline Thompson at the time, if you wish to look it up yourself.)

Sorry, I found it when working on a relative's memorial and didn't take note of the source.

RE: Zerbels
Hello there. I am working with Richard Reader and his wife Kay who are related to the Zerbel's. I have been doing research on the family beginning with Siegfried and going down the line with his descendants who migrated to Chocolay Twp, Marquette County, MI. Siegfried was one of the original families who settled in this area and was recognized by the township in the 1964 centennial celebration book.
