Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi fellow grave-hunters. We aren't morbid, are we? No, we just want to find our relatives. I used to think that I didn't want to take up a piece of earth to place my bones and leave a marker to memorialize my life in birth and death years. But now that I'm doing family histories and research like my great Aunt Olive did for years, I'm reconsidering and wonder if 50 years from now someone may want to know where my bones are resting. hhhmmmm. My aunt spent most of her adult life conducting genealogy research and teaching it and I was very intrigued by her studies and the results. Now she's gone and I'm off on my own tangent doing genealogy and the great partner that goes with that is grave-hunting. I live on the Washington Olympic Peninsula in Port Townsend, a quaint little Victorian seaport and we have lovely old cemeteries here. I am willing to photograph anyone near me.
You are welcome to use my photos, please let me know if you wish to use one and please give photo credit whether they are mine, my mother's (Frances Brindley) or from a collection which I have specified.
My Sherriff ancestors came from England in 1857; my Brindley ancestors from Kentucky, England, Ireland, and Germany by way of Canada. The Voices came from England in 1834, some settled in the brand new city of Chicago in 1836, some moved from there up to Michigan, including my great-great grandfather, some stayed in that growing city and survived the Great Chicago Fire! The Sherriffs and their in-laws/parents, the Grays/Greys, also came from England and stayed in New York for a couple years but eventually settled in Empire, Michigan. The Brindleys came down from Ontario, Canada and were among the pioneer families of Pickford, Michigan.
I have been working on locating or completing memorials for their descendants on both my maternal and my paternal sides. Some of the names I want to memorialize are Brindley; Sherriff; Rowley; Scarberry; Voice; Cryderman; Couturier; Ames; Anderson; Ball; Wright; Elliott; Fry; Gray/Grey; Smith; Van Wormer; and so many more.
Blessings to you all.
The business my husband and I run is for vinyl record collectors. We publish record price guides for the collector and dealer in vintage vinyl music. That is so far removed from grave memorials, unless you consider that we are helping to memorialize vinyl music as much as you and I choose to memorialize our ancestors and their grave markers.
Contact me at my alternate address.
For the record-collector, check out our website at and read more about vinyl; you can also read the Ask Mr. Music column, written by my Jerry.@

Wright Family
Hi Barbara,
I am a Wright, that is my maiden name. My great grandfather is Sidney Wright. I have lots of information passed down to me from my grandma. I took a break from working on family tree stuff but I just started working on it a little again. I will be taking a trip up to the UP in a couple weeks and I hope to stop by the cemetery in Munising and see what's there. Hopefully I will get some pictures to add.
Thanks for all the information you have passed on to me and helping me keep everything straight. Sometimes genealogies can get confusing. I've found the Wright family to be quite a challenge.

RE: Arvid Austin 8104323

As I recall I was told he died from complications of appendix or a hernia. I was told this story many years ago from my grandmother Marie Conklin Austin. Im not sure. I was not aware that he attended Missionary College.
