RE: Peter Ream
No problem. I do have a picture of his wife, Catherine's, headstone, also, but it's very hard to read. I don't know if it was the angle of the sun, or because the letters weren't etched as deeply as on his. I'll leave it up to you if you would like me to put it up on her Find A Grave page.

Since you have been so kind to work on Allegan, can you tell us something about the area & why so many migrated to that area? Along with my Northrops, I have other family members who went there as well. Would love to hear a bit more.

Thank you, Brenda in Memphis

RE: Frances D. Blades
Chris, Thanks for getting back to me, no I do not need to add anything you have the rest of it right. Did you get your info on my family from Charlie Towne, if you did I will have to check with him, cause we belong to the same family. Your doing great work here on this site. My email is if you have any more questions on the Woodin's or Blades. Take care. Paula

RE: Frank Van Dine

The dupes were by others in Gibson, all yours were older. I will keep track of them.

Frances D. Blades
You have a nice thing going here, but the information you have on my Grandmother Frances Deliaha Woodin Blades is not totally correct. My Great Grand father, Frances' fathers name is Frank Henry Woodin not Frances, Could you plaese correct this on your site. Thank you and questions you can email me at or call me at 269 349 8351. But my main goal is to have my family tree infor correct, and if you check with Charlie Towne, he will verify that the info I have given you here is 100% corrct.

Riverside plots

Hi Chris,

I was going to photograph some of the requests in Riverside Cem. Saugatuck. Is there a transcription online that shows the locations of individual graves? Thank you for any help.
