Bio and Links
Please feel free to request transfers. My only interest in being a member of Finding A Grave is to help others locate the final resting places of their loved ones. Many people have helped me in such a way and I appreciated all the work they have done. This is my way of passing their efforts forward.

I do reserve the right to maintain my own family and relatives, but I have transferred to those who are closer related. So request away. We may find we are related.

Also, people have asked many times if they can use the pictures that I have placed on memorials. Yes, anyone may use the pictures for their own personal use. I do not feel ownership for them they are there for family members to enjoy.

Allan ancestry
Hello, Recently saw your entries on Find A Grave with data pertaining my ancestors. John H Allan is my grandfather and have been researching he and family. His father William Gardner Allan.
Am interested in how you happen to know about the Allan family and if can share any other info. Suspect you are descendant of an in law.
Noticed that you listed names of siblings of John Allan but did include others such as my father William Robb Allan or brothers Chester and Hugh.
I would appreciate conversing with you further.
Will be traveling next couple weeks and stopping in Gaylord area to locate where Allans lived.
Not originally from Yale, MI area before moving to Gaylord.

Would prefer you email me at
Looking forward to hearing from you.

RE: Prudence and Samuel Shattuck
Thanks. I am an IT professional and tried a lot to read them but they blurred. No big problem and I only asked, if you ever got the opportunity without going out of your way.

Memorial# 130466135

What information I have on them is sparse but growing and i feel luck that I found them.

Without going too far out of your way, would it be possible for you to, at some time, to copy what is in on their stone that is not readable in the picture

It may give me a clue to further information and I would appreciate it if you can do me this service.

Thanks in advance for anything you can do.

RE: Kathryn Tackebury Stafford
Kate's mother, Mary Vinette, is sister to George Vinette, my husband's great grandfather. So their parents, Jean Baptiste and Mary, are 2 g grandparents to both of you, making you (I think) 3rd cousins.

William Seabury memorial transfer
I wanted to apologize for not thanking you earlier for the transfer of the memorial for William Seabury, a soldier in the Fourth Michigan Infantry, to me. Somehow I overlooked it and wanted you to know that I really appreciated your cooperation. I have just updated his memorial (#70521390) to indicate his military service.

Thanks again,

RE: Merrow picture
Yes, feel free to copy and use the picture. Frank and Sarah were my husbands gg grandparents. Their daughter Emma married his great grandfather Joseph Oren Pittenger in 1889, divorced before 1900. They had two children Mary Frances 1891-1891 (died at 6 months of pneumonia) and Walter 1893-1966. A niece of Joseph Oren's, Harriet Pittenger married Sarah's brother Isaac Oscar in 1888, and they too were divorced around 1900.
