I find entering bio's and photo's and such for my family members relaxing. Nothing like a good romp in a cemetery to top off my day. |
I am currently recording Sherwood Cemetery in Sherwood, MI. I am also adding a little info about the people buried there when I can find it. I am finding my information from Death Certificates on Seekingmichigan.com, Gendis.com, and sometimes the census. I also have copies of the "History of Branch County" where I may find a little info on my people. I hope this helps someone with their research and in finding their lost family members. Thank you to everyone who is leaving tokens for these people. To my knowledge I am not realated to anyone in this cemetery, but I feel like they are my family now.
I think this says it all:
They say that life is fleeting,I know that this is true.I left this world so quickly, With no goodbye to you. I know how much you miss me, Your tears fall ever light. The pillow where you lay your head, Is wet with them at night. I know your heart is hurting, The words we left, unsaid. I love you's left unspoken Are spinning in your head.The strength that I have carried, That served to make you whole. Remains to make you stronger, Within your grieving soul. For you see, while you were weeping On the day I passed away, At the gravesite near the flowers Where my loved ones knelt to pray. An angel came to see me, She took me by the hand, She led me to a kingdom In a very distant land. As I look down from the heaven, And see you standing there Your heart so ever burdened With more weight than it can bear. I long to bring you comfort, I long to give you peace, I long to hold you closely, Cause all your tears to cease. The joy I've found in heaven Goes far beyond compare. The love that's so elusive, Can be found here everywhere. The light is softly shining. There's no storm clouds here or rain. There's no tear drops found in heaven. There's no suffering, there's no pain. You needn't be so troubled, Stay close to God and pray That someday we'll be together, One bright and glorious day. So my love, you shouldn't question My dear you need not cry I've gone to be with Jesus I really didn't die.

Thank you so much for the transfers of Alton Schofield and Lorene Cole. It means a lot to me!
Dena, Thank you for the transfer of Margaret. I think you can see why I wanted to publish her biography - quite a woman! So many of my mother's relatives are buried in Branch County - Sherwood and Riverside. My great grandmother's second husband was sexton at the Riverside cemetery. I will probably continue to ask for linkages, but will try not to inundate you with requests. Thank you for all the work you do. Janet

Would you consider transferring the memorial of Eli Schofield to me? His number is 41647147 and he's in Riverside Cemetery.
Eli was my grandfather.
Thank you for you consideration and for putting this memorial on findagrave.
