RE: John Henry Alders
Robert, Donna and Betty Alders are listed at River Side. If you have others that is awesome.

Will add John Henry to the South cemetery. Thanks for that information.

What I would really like to find out is where my GGGpa Henry is buried. He died in 1902, Byron Center. A few of his children are also buried there so I wouldn't doubt that's where he is.

His wife Elizabeth re-married to an Auke John VanderHeide. She died in 1940 kalamazoo.

Do you need my email addy to send me the post from the gazette?

Thanks again for all your help..

RE: John Henry Alders
I see there is a Mount Ever Rest Memorial cemetery South and North but he isn't listed so I will add his but need to know which one lol..

Also read your profile. I see the surname Postema. My GGGpa Henry Alders married an Elizabeth. Some of her surnames I have found are Eiting and Potesma. Does this ring a bell? Maybe it is supposed to be Postema?

Not sure if this is the same family but my brother married a DeVries :)

Thanks again for any and all help...
