Bio and Links
Bio Photo My Family names are Wilson, Terry, Reid/Reed, Beaupre/Bopra, Guild, Betsch/Batsch/Batch, and Chemelli. Areas of interest are Ontario, Michigan, Washington State, British Columbia, Northern Italy and Bessarabia.
I have been doing my family genealogies for the past 10 years. Last fall I went on a major road trip to Michigan and meet some 3rd cousins and spent a week travelling the back roads of Sanilac County visiting the small villages and the cemeteries in Marion, Bridgehampton and Washington Townships. From there I made my way to Ontario to the New Market Area and the Village of Sharon, then to Leeds County, spending time at Gananoque researching family at the Library there, with side trips to the surrounding cemeteries and communities.
I live in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

RE: Washing Cemetery, Ennest photo's
Your so very welcome for the photos. And of course you may use the photos in any you wish. I sincerely appreciate you asking to do so.

I was in Washington cemetery fulling some of my own memorials. And can not help wondering if your William is any relation to Hiram Ennest. Hiram was born 1820 in New York and died in 1885 in Sanilac COunty. I've only tracked three children to him:
Matilda A Ennest Derby (1851 - 1925)*
Sarah Amanda Ennest Dickinson (1852 - 1915)*
Selina S Ennest Ennest (1855 - 1945)*

Is there any family connection that you know of?

Edit Request
You sent me an edit request to link Nick Pagen to Ruby (rich) Pagen. I've been searching to verify the connection but can't find the source. Can you tell me where to find it.

William Oleski
I noticed that you have a memorial for William Oleski and his wife. He is my mother's cousin. I have his father, Joseph Oleski in my memorials. I do not have anything yet on his mother as Joseph was married twice. Could you please add his father to his memorial? Or, if you would like, you could transfer it to me and I would take care of it. Thank you for finding his gravesite. I will be adding more information regarding his brothers and sisters soon as I have recently found some of their gravesites. Thank you again.

RE: Downing Cemetery Map
Oh boy, first let me say that I've talked with the cemetery sexton and he has on idea when or how the "Lettered Section" map came into existence. The proper map wasn't public until it was restored because it was in such bad shape. the sections relate as follows:
Section A = Section 1 & 1A
Section B = Section 2 & 2A
Section E = Section 6
Section F = Section 5
Section G = Section 8
Section H = Section 9
Section D = Section 13
Section J = Section 14
Here is were it is a little harder to explain.

A strip thru the center of Section C & Section I = 12A, which use to be the horse drawn cart path for burials.

To the north or right side on the lettered map of Section 12A in Section C is Section 12.

To the south or left side on the map of Section 12A in Section C is Section 3A & 3 but only up to the road that ends between Section B & F. Then it becomes Section 4 from that road between B & F and stops at the road between F & H.

To the south of Section 12A in Section I is Section 10 and the north side of 12a in Section I is Section 11.

Basically, Section C is made up of Sections 3, 3A, 4, 12 & 12A and Section I is made up of Sections 10, 11 & 12A.

The Sections 1A, 2A & 3A were added to the east end of 1, 2 & 3

The map I posted on Find A Grave also shows Sections 15 & 16 which are not open yet. I'm not sure if those sections will open this year or not.

I know I've confused you. I'll try to send you a copy of the Lettered map. Someone has made some notes on the map at some time, I don't know who. You need to compare the numbered map to the lettered map side by side to figure out what I tried to explain. Note the some of the roads have changed at the front of the cemetery since the lettered map was drawn.

Good Luck!

RE: Catherine Batch
Hello Marion: Depending on your Operating System and version of Browser, you can probably right-click on any picture and then select "Save picture as...". To make sure you get the highest resolution available, first go to the "Photos" tab which shows only the pictures. If you stay on the "Memorial" tab you will only get much smaller versions of the pictures. Let me know what happens. Regards, Greg.
