Bio Photo I live in Lorain County, Ohio
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.

Bertha Bell Vaughn Reep
U have a headstone picture of Bertha Reep, that U manage. May I ask please, are U related to Bertha? My sister in law's father Howard Reep just passed. Bertha was his mother. She died when Howard was a year old.

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!

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.
