Like many others, I found Find A Grave while searching for my ancestors. Although I currently live in South Florida, I am Indiana born and raised and will forever be a Hoosier at heart. I visit family in Indiana twice a year and always make time to stop at as many cemeteries as time will allow. (yes, my family thinks I'm a bit strange.)

I hope my efforts will perhaps help someone in their ancestry search. I also hope to help immortalize forgotten folks and some of these great old gravestones before they crumble away forever.

Some of the surnames in my family line are: Pratt, Churchill, Miller, Friend, Cook, Calentine, Strong, Himelick, Veal, Reeves, Swihart, Eaten, Bundy, Overton, Myers, Thomas, Tombaugh, and Shively.

I am also researching my husband's family ancestry including the following surnames: Habermann, Schafer, Tuohy, Kaiser, Davis, Minogue, McGrath, and Shenefield.

Please let me know if you need someone transferred to you. Also, please let me know if I've made any errors in my submissions, and I will correct them as quickly as possible.

Not sure if you're related or not, but Emlene Bell 76723845 is my paternal grandmother. Thank you for creating her memorial. I would be happy to receive transfer of her memorial if you would like.

Thank you!

Hi Susan,

Thanks for all the work you've done here on Find a Grave. I've found that you created a memorial for an ancestor of mine. Samuel Beckner was my 3rd great grandfather. I have some things that I would like to add to his memorial so if you would be so kind as to transfer his memorial over to me, I would really appreciate it.

Samuel Beckner - 58217473

George Swihart /Swinehart
I noticed George Swihart /Swinehart is your 4th great grandfather, well he's my 4th great uncle. Your 5th great grandparents are Peter Swinehart & Anna Mary Swinehart. I have no idea why the spelling was changed from Swinehart to Swihart but I do know that thru history the spelling had changed many times.

Mary L Slater Denend Kuhl
I Have added Michigan death cert to Mary L Slater Denend Kuhl Memorial, this information

Mary L. Slater Denend Kuhl, daughter of Jeremiah Slater and Ruth Moore Slater born May 11, 1844 in Miami County, Indiana, USA. The family moved to Buchanan Township, Berrien County, Michigan, and Mary grew up there with her two sisters Elizabeth and Sarah J. and seven brothers, William Henderson, Nathaniel Jennings, Henry R., Leonidas H., John C., James L. and Benjamin J. Slater. She was the youngest of the ten children.

Mary married William Denend, Feb 28, 1866 in Berrien Co., Michigan. Mary was the mother of Frank Denend and step-mother of Sarah Ann and James Denend. William Denend died 1901 in Saint Joseph County, Indiana.

In 1910 Census we find Mary working as a servant back in Bertrand Township, Berrien, Michigan.

Mary L Slater Denend married August F. Kuhl Of Galien, Berrien, Michigan Oct 14, 1911 in Saint Joseph County, Indiana. August and Mary resided in Galien Township, Berrien County, Michigan. August was a farmer.

Mary L. Slater Denend Kuhl died Oct 31, 1924 in Three Oaks, Berrien County, Michigan, USA. Mary L. Slater Denend Kuhl is buried with her second husband August Kuhl in Galien Township Cemetery, Berrien County Michigan.

link with Galien cemetery is disconnected.

Help to clarify this and put Mary in correct cemetery is greatly appreciate. Thank you.

I believe his dod should be 1872. Charles is the first husband of Rebecca Huff. She is my great grandmother. He is mentioned in the book "These Men Have Seen Hard Service, The First Michigan Sharp Shooters in the Civil War".

Transfer Requests
Susan -
Can you please transfer management of memorials for these ancestors to me:
Collins Family members @ Reames-Norton Cemetery, Cass County, Michigan -
Conrad Collins - #110451564
Sarah Richardson Collins - #110451547
Catherine Collins - #110451519
Mary Collins - #110451582
Conrad & Sarah are my 3X great-grandparents. My Mother has additional historical and biographical information on the Collins family and their Cass County Michigan pioneer homestead that she would like to have added to their pages and we believe it would be too much of an inconvenience to you to ask you to make all the changes when you have so many memorials to handle already.

John Means and the following members of his family in Riverside Cemetery, Dowagiac, Michigan:
John Means - #122298450
Elizabeth Means - #122298510
Daniel Means - #122298621
James Means - #122299647
Margaret Means - #122299695
Rachael Means - #122299761
John and Elizabeth Means are my 2X great-grandparents. My Mom grew up in Dowagiac and we still visit Riverside Cemetery regularly. Every year we place an American flag on the grave of John Means in honor of his military service during the Civil War. My mother has acquired a significant amount of genealogical information on the Means family which we would like to use to update their memorials and correct some information.
Thank you for all your hard work.
