I believe that it is important we remember and honor the past. By tending to my family's roots through remembering the people who have gone before, I can help keep their memories and the memory of them alive. |
I am especially interested in transcribing and providing photographs for the Towns/North Amber Cemetery and Rikey Cemetery in Amber Township, Mason County, Michigan and the Potter's Field of Lakeview Cemetery, Mason County, Ludington, Michigan.
If you are related to any of the individuals that I've submitted information about, and I am not a direct descendant, I would be happy to let you take over management of their memorials. Let me know if I've made an error, as I'll gladly fix it. However, my life is very full (as I'm sure yours is), and it takes me time to get to everything.
Larger, non-compressed versions of some of the photographs that I have contributed can be found at: http://flickr.com/photos/simply_diann/sets/72157601911017987/
There is more than one way of getting close to your ancestors.
Follow the Old Road and as you do, think of them; they climbed Chillingbourne Hill just as you did. They sweated and paused for breath just as you did today. And when you see the bluebells in the spring and the wild thyme, and the broom and the heather, you're seeing what their eyes saw. You ford the same rivers, the same birds singing. And when you lie flat on your back and rest, and watch the clouds sailing as I often do, you're so close to those other people, that you can hear the thrumming of the hoofs of their horses, and the sound of the wheels on the road, and their laughter, and talk, and the music of the instruments they carried. And they turned the bend in the road, where they too saw the towers of Canterbury. I feel I have only to turn my head, to see them on the road behind me.

Thank you so much for replying, It sounds confusing, but I'm sure I will figure it out.
Thanks for the info I will take care of it right away. Yes it came from the death records. I read yours and what a brave woman to travel like she did at age 71. That is a great story. My mind is just thinking about traveling all the way to Michigan back then and how wild the county was then. Custer is still a small town today. Thanks Jan

|Ms. Mandy||RE: Fogg|
I'm so sorry! That was my error. Opal Florence Fogg was born in April 1919 and died January 23, 1920.
Thank you for letting me know and for updating her memorial! :)

I will be in Luddington this summer, and i would like to visit the cemetery while I'm there. I noticed that you posted several photos in the cemetery, and I was wondering if you could answer a couple of questions that I have.
1) I was wondering the exact location of the cemetery.
2)I was wondering how the plot info. works, i was looking on the website, and it gave alot of different numbers for each person, i had never seen a cemetery plotted like this, Do they have seperate sections, or what exactly do these numbers mean?

Just came across the obit for this fellow. Lots of good info.
|Dorothy||RE: J Jacobs|
Hi, sorry I did not get to reply to you. I am not sure of the plot number but I do know that I have a whole bunch of Jacobs who lived and died there. I will email you soon.

I have recently found that John Holmes (wife Mary, daughter Fanny) is the brother of an ancestor of mine (William Wilson Holmes). I was wondering if you had any further information about the Holmes family? I'm afraid I don't have any more about Mary or Fanny than you do though. Seems they aren't that easy to track down!
