I'm a Michigan native retired and back in Michigan. I have immersed myself in genealogy since I've returned. Will be making more trips to nearby cemeteries in the Adams Township, Hillsdale County areas and further within Hillsdale and Lenawee counties.|

Hi, thank for the correction. They were born in Holland, Netherlands and died in Arcadia, Wayne, NY. I must of entered it wrong one long night of family history searching so appreciate the correction. All my family history books are packed away for the summer so not sure how much I can help you with family history. Which Defay are you related to? I am from John and Jennie Tierson DeFay branch. RLE

I have a copy of a very old type written book done at the cemetery. They walked the cemetery and wrote what was on the headstones then typed it from the notes.
The book reads:
I'm kind of thinking this is a footstone and the book is incorrect and it should say Sarah. Because also listed in the book is a stone that should read:
Nelly, I believe, would have been a nickname for Helen Louisa Hosmer, Sarah and Edwards baby. I hope this makes sense and until someone can find these stones I added a note to Alices memorial stating the above.
