My mother started me on family history by taking me all over Michigan looking in cemeteries for headstones and families. Then she would tell stories about everyone. She transcribed all the headstones we found and kept wonderful records. I am continuing on her love of family history and going back to same cemeteries and seeing the family. Thanks to find-a-grave I have found more family and hopefully can help others.
My goal is transcribe local cemeteries, not only the older graves but the newer ones so families can connect. I find I can connect families by their locations to each other in the cemetery with the added benefit of learning the history of the cemetery.

If I manage one of your family members and you would like me to transfer the management please let me know.

RE: Sweeny of Morenci
no problem--it's a common mistake--and I made sure that my edit was based on the fact of the tombstone's spelling, not on other information--but in fact that is the surname spelling used most by that branch of the family.
thanks for your quick response!

Not necessary, it's my wife's mother's relatives.

RE: Mary C Oakes
A cousin told me that the grave marker for Mary C. Oakes was next to her husband's marker, Calvin Oakes. A corner of Mary's marker is visible in your picture of Calvin's.

Thank you in advance for your effort in this matter.

Thanks, that's what we are here for, to work together and get it right!
Do you happen to be related to the Lige's?

transfer of Linn family
Thank you for the transfer of the Linn family. I have tried to update their memorial pages and link them together as a family. I enjoy doing family research, so you're right, the time does go by fast when I'm busy looking for ancestors! :)

more Linn transfers
Hi again,
Wow, you're quick! Thanks for the transfer of Fred Linn. You got to me before I found the other members of the Linn family in the same cemetery. I can manage the following also:
Minnie E Linn #61930889
Marie A Linn #61930900
Robert F Linn #61930879

My contributor #48362505

Now all I have to do is find Fred Linn's first wife and where she is buried. She's the one who started all of this in my family tree!
