Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am family tree nut who started out just wanting to get the Pentwater Cemetery done because I saw it was lacking. I was hooked fast! I love Findagrave. I found many missing pieces for my own family tree and I received notes from others saying my worked helped them solve theirs.

I don't mind transferring Memorials to family as long as they aren't my family too. All I ask is that you don't delete mine to replace with your own.

RE: George M. Slater
George M Slater is in plot 2-24. He is the only Slater in that section. There is also a George L Slater. George M lived from 1858 to 1868, just 10 years old. George L lived from 1856 to 1929. He is in plot 22-35. Nathaniel Jennings Slater (1828 - 1907, Nella M Slater (1865 - 1944, and Phidelia Slater (1835 - 1920) are in that same plot.
Leonard Slater (1832 - 1851) is listed as Leonidas Slater in the records and on his marker. He is in plot 20-20 along with Ben J Slater, Henry Slater, Jeremiah Slater, Mary G Slater, and Ruth Slater. He is listed as the son of Jeremiah and Ruth Slater.
There is also a Ella J and a Clara Slater. Both are listed as daughters of W C and E A Slater. They are not in the records. Ella was moved here from an earlier cemetery and her location is unknown. Clara is in plot 17-22.

Minshall family, Pentwater Cemetery
Hi Amanda. I have just added information and corrections to the Minshalls' monuments. The tombstone for them is incorrect -- they died in 1896, not 1897, and there are many newspaper articles online to confirm this. I believe that you are correct, that husband and father Samuel Bachtel Minshall is buried with them but without a marker, as he was responsible for their deaths. Thanks for all you are doing! HWA.

William Coleman's father
This appears to be the marriage record of Elizabeth Slater:

Looks like she married another William E. Coleman here in Berrien County in 1852.

RE: Mahack
Sorry I am not related and to my knowledge I have no relatives in NY anywhere.

I am in OK. My paternal line came out of PA in the mid 1920s and my maternal line came out of OR also mid 1920s. I married into the Freeman line which is out of NC established there in the 1770s.

Good luck in your search.

Bakertown Cemetery
The cemetery would not have the death records. If they exist they would be on file with the Berrien County Clerk. You can check death indexes at to see if one exists.

RE: Lakeside Cemetery
Hi Amanda. There wasn't when I was clerk. We had a table cloth that had graves and plots on it. I made a file. But there were no records. The clerk since may have tracked down files from the state since.

RE: Young
Thank you! I always wondered why they ask you to enter the year of marriage when you first add a memorial. Then I realized that maybe it was for two different spouses. It did work for me, but I don't know how you will be able to do it on a memorial that already exists. Thank you for trying!
