Bio and Links
I live in Sunfield Michigan and am in my early 40's. I have 3 little girls who keep me very busy. My and my husbands families are both from the Ionia and Eaton county areas for many many generations back. I have been into tracing my family history since I was in high school.

I am hoping for a little "what goes around comes around" or "paying it forward" or whatever you want to call it :) I have an ancestor that I don't know where he is buried. His whole life he and his family lived in or around Lyons, Ionia County, Michigan and Crystal Township, Montcalm County, Michigan. These towns are only twenty miles apart....and I can't find him! I am hoping that I or someone else stumbles over his name on a grave marker one of these days. Newell Canfield...where are you? For that matter, I also don't know where is parents Isaac and Polly Canfield are buried! Or his wife Frances (VanValkenburg) Canfield Hartley is buried! This family is really good at hiding!

Playing it forward
That is what I have been doing for 2 days. I am trying to find a Willey married to Eliza Frietz. No info on him or on her marriage wise. So I am adding every Willey death certificate to Find A Grave hoping someone knows how these families link together and sooner or later..the Willey I seek will be posted.

Ross Leonard Harmon
Yvette - Why was the Harmon Bros News Article uploaded to Uncle Ross' memorial? Can you help me make the connection with the article and what I know of the family.

Thanks, Claudia

RE: Samuel Walker Hartley 75339664
My best suggestion to fix the incorrect information is to contact the manager Rhonda Adam and and just state the facts madam! I have no idea if she is a relative or not, but touching base with her is the first step. If you have documents as proof, consider letting her know that. 99.9 per cent of the folks here on Find A Grave are wonderful people so I don't expect any problems. What manager would NOT want to correct wrong information on one of their memorials?
Let me know how it goes and if you need input from me, I'll help in any way I can!
Thank you for responding,
