Bio Photo I am retired from the Michigan Department of Agriculture and hope to, someday, visit every Township and City in Michigan and document those visits with photos of what I see. One of my interests is finding graves of famous people who are buried in Michigan.

RE: Carr

Thank you for bringing it to my attention about making his memorial Famous, something I've never done before. It has been revised.

If you wish, I can transfer all of the Carr memorials to you. I am related through the Lindow name but I am willing. Please advise.

And thank you for the obituary for Leland Carr Jr.

Charles and Lilah Mallay

Well I think you could look at the burial records on find a grave for Charles and Lilah Mallay you would need to see near the bottom of the memorial the plot block lot facts

Charles Alva Mallay
Plot: BlockC, Lot075, Space2, SpotID3513

Lilah E. N. Mason Mallay
Plot: BlockC, Lot075, Space1 SpotID3512

based on the above data it would suggest they are indeed buried next to one another.

I would also suggest that Charles did not know the correct maiden name of Lilah.

I really think her maiden name would be Leeson.

I think her father is named
U.S., World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918
Name: Charles Randolph Leeson
County: Presque Isle
State: Michigan
Birth Date: 3 April 1874

Let me know what you think.

I took care of the Clifford B. McKee entry. I have no idea how this happened. Once I received a notice from someone in NY that some photos ended up on a wrong gravesite there. I'd never even heard of the cemetery.
Thanks for drawing my attention to this matter.

The Campbell Children
We see that you have blocked pictures of grave stones for 2 of the 3 Campbell children who were killed in an automobile accident. Please, help bring this family together by allowing their grave stone pictures to be in their memorial. Thank you for helping us keep the family together.

Hi Steve,
I am Nellie Vandolsen's great granddaughter. My Grandfather is Russell, and my father is Kenneth.

I am having a hard time finding Nellie's parents. Would you happen to have information on them? I know that their names are Jenny Martin and Calvin Vandolsen but that's all I can find.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks :)

Thank you for trying to bring Lilah together with the rest of her family. The only information we have for her, is all we have right now. Hopefully, someone will come forward with more vital information regarding Lilah and/or her family.

Hello again Steve

Many thanks for sending the grave location edit for Delmar Andrew Brewer, which I have now actioned, as well as for the grave marker photos for Delmar and Helen Margaret Mutz Brewer.

I have transferred his Find A Grave memorial page to your care in order to keep all the MUTZ pages together and to allow for you to record any changes to the condition of the grave easier.

Regards, David
London, England

RE: Mutz Memorials
Hi Steve

No need at all for apologies or explaination. One of the nice things about family history research is that this years novice can, and often does, become next years teacher. Just take your time with your memorials and let me know if I can be of help.You can contact me at if you would prefer to keep things more private.

You have already understood the most fundamental lesson in that we are all creating public records on Find A Grave which others may base their family trees on and therefore need to be as accurate as possible. That said, it is a most fasinating hobby which can give us the chance to view an aspect of history by looking at individual lives of struggle and family achievement.

Right now I am busy researching the 337 names on our WW1 War Memorial but as soon as I have free time I shall try to answer your earlier question about Walter Neller and the other Michigan Neller
family members.

Till then, Good Luck and best regards,
