Bio and Links
Bio Photo After reading an article about two ladies in Barry County (MI) who transcribed ALL of the cemeteries in the county, I started looking for some of my relatives there. I found a lot of them as many were pioneers there in the 1840's and 1850's. I decided to pay the favor forward and started doing the local cemetery. To my surprise there were over 3,700 graves in the small cemetery! Then I decided to take photos of all of them. I did it all in about three months. Now I am looking forward to additional cemeteries.
Since then, thanks to "findagrave", I have found many relatives in other parts of Michigan and Canada. Very interesting, rewarding and addicting.

No close relationship, they were just relatives of relatives. If your pictures turned out better than mine let me know & I will remove mine.

Thank you
I don't know how this site works, but if it was you that put the photo of my nephew Kevin Schenk's stone on here I wanted to say thank you.

RE: Orville D Cottrill 21503840
Ok. But would you tell me what cemetery he is actually buried in? I did not write it down from your memorial. I will submit that change to Findagrave and then perhaps that will be a change they will make quicker than merging both memorials. Then he will at least be in the right cemetery. Thanks.

Thank you for all your work Douglas, I will take good care of the memorial!

By the way, might you be related to Colleen Day that used to live in Fenton, Michigan?

By any chance could you check to see if his wife
Delpine L. Jenkins is buried by her husband?
she was born 1920-2010. She is a cousin
Forrest # 79123374 Row 3 NW corner
Big Paririe Everett Cemetery. If you find her and make a memorial and add a grave stone photo,
I would love to finish it with her family.
Let me know.
