Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have worked on several trees since 2004. I really appreciate all the information I find from others and just wanted to 'play it forward.' Please don't hesitate to suggest corrections, changes or additions! I will gladly transfer any memorials as well ..I would love to have ALL of them claimed by their families!

March 2014, When I am reviewing a cemetery for MY duplicates, updates or errors, if I find other duplicates I send a message to the most recently entered memorial. I know we all try hard to not have duplicates but don't be offended when you find that you have one. It is just trying to make the system better.

I believe that the marker is the final word. As an example: if Mr. Smith wanted William Smith on his marker he would have put it there. If he put Billy Smith, I prefer to not change the memorial. I would be happy to add William James Smith in the bio section if such a request is made.

Schoolcraft or Delta county
I moved the cemetery complete to Schoolcraft. This should start the corrections.

Thanks, you made my day!
With the info you had added about his parents, it is without any doubt that he is identical to my wife´s "lost" great-grand-uncle, who emigrated from Bollnäs in Hälsningland, Sweden in 1901.

RE: Caroline Perry
Hi Elaine:
Yes, Josiah's marker has on it "husband of Caroline Perry". William, his son is the little marker to the left of the one you posted. I'm not sure where Josiah's first wife is buried.
Nor am I sure of where Caroline's first husband is buried, Henry Thomas Smith.
Caroline is buried by her daughter, Maud M.and husband, Liberty Perry by the Perry family stone. Some others of the family are bried at Calvary too.
I'll check out her info and enter a picture of the markers. I just visited the cemetery again with a family member here from CA. Write again if I can be of help.

I am currently indexing Death Records for 1914 of which a record for George F R Hurley states that he is the son of Samuel H and Mini Locker???....he was born in 1836, NJ and died 1914 in VA.....this d/c also lists that he is interred in Clarksbury Cemetery. The informant was: A R Hurley.

I did not see him listed with the Hurley's do you know of this gentleman...if so would you add him to the cemetery....

Thank You....

RE: Jack Jurkovich
Thsnks for the info. My GGF Wm. Joseph (Arman) Jerkovich is not listed on the Fernwood Index, But I was told he is there by family. Is it possible its not listed?
The reason I thought Jack was a priest is that I have't seen any evidence of family. But then I just started looking. Thanks for everything. Rosemary

Jack Jurkovich
Jack Jurkovitch is my Grand Uncle. The tombstone reads Father Jack, Do you know was he a priest ?Im pretty sure that his father William Joseph Jurkovitch (different spellings) was buried in Fernwood, but do not see his name or any variation. He was born 1828/32 died July 28, 1920. He died in Gladstone Michigan. Any info would be helpful. Thank you Rosemary #48044487

RE: Addiction?
I've slowed down a bit. There was that cemetery that was "off road" and required me to hike 1/2 mile through a cornfield, then climb a fence covered with poison ivy. All the stones had been pushed over by the cows grazing nearby. A bit discouraging. (Plus I got sunburned.) But mostly it's pretty fun! I think it will be even more fun in the fall when it is cooler.
What projects are you working on now?

Hi Elaine! Thanks for writing a message to me. I had a lot of fun visiting that neat little cemetery to take a photo for you. It was my first time to do such a thing. I have a lot to learn, but I think I might get hooked on this. Martha
