Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've involved with cemeteries for a long time. I would go with my mom to put flowers on the family graves and continue that tradition. Later I started recording cemetery data. If you were in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Fairview cemetery and saw a lady with a clip board in a green floppy hat, with a husband seated on a lawn chair playing viola, that was me. Now I use a digital camera recording stones.
We live in South Lyon Michigan, but long to hit the roads, with a viola and digital camera.
I am inactive in adding new stones and photos to FindAGrave but will make changes to existing sites as requeste.

RE: Pauline (Schneider) Ryan
Thank you for Pauline's family info. I do not have any info on Edward, as I just found him on 1900 US census recently living with Conrad, Katherine, Pauline & Amanda Schneider.
South Main street near the RR tracks sounds correct. That matches my property tax info from Charles Schneider.
What section is the Kranich plot at Fairview?
Your photo of Ed & Elsa would be great, thank you.

Stanley Powell
Concerning your e-mail.
Stanley Powell b 1929-1975 Deerfield Center Cemetery. See Stanley Powell and Deerfield Center Cemetery and Sharp Cemetery are the same Cemetery.

MR Mcbride can't remove Esther Hipperson born 1913 as Stanley's child as he didn't put it there.
Someone born 1929 can't have a child born 1913.
You also have other mistakes and I asked you to remove all of this a long time ago.

Complaint made.

No, I don't want to maintain the site.
