Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi,
I am searching for the Mairs / Mears / Meares line, from The Scots- Irish in Ulster, Ireland to Steubenville, OH, and Browning area of Missouri.
I live in S.W. Michigan and frequently travel the back roads of West Michigan, Southern Indiana, and Southern Ohio.
My favorite cemeteries to explore are the small, somewhat forgotten cemeteries, well off the beaten trail.
The large cemeteries that require maps, and lots of research.. not my strong suit.
If there is anything I can do for someone, please ask.
Also, If I have made any mistakes please let me know and I will do my best to correct them.
Happy Hunting.

I have 1896...thanks for catching that....also changed her husband Thomas A. French to 1878. I will try and contact the person that posted for Thomas to link Thomas and Polly. Nice job.

Headstone hunting
Sorry no headstone was there for the Coykendalls, so I entered that info as a flower so I never ask again. Thanks for hunting for them.
