Bio and Links
Bio Photo Welcome, everyone. I am Frank Passic, Albion Historian (Albion, Calhoun County, Michigan). Check out the listings for Riverside Cemetery, as this cemetery dates back to 1837, and most burials are now listed on Findagrave. If your ancestor lived in the Albion, Michigan area, I might be able to help you. I write a weekly history column and many of these have been published on the www.albionmich.com web site. Be sure to check this out and type in a name in the search engine there, and you can also leave a message on the guestbook. If your ancestors lived in the Albion area, feel free to contact me and I can look up to see if any of your surnames are buried in Riverside Cemetery in Albion. I live only a few blocks from the cemetery and am more than happy to receive photo requests for there. I also maintain a private Albion area history archives with many surname files. Best wishes in your quest and research. Frank Passic, Albion Historian.
NOTE: With the advent of Findagrave's links to relatives and having posted thousands of entries, it can be time consuming to have to link parents and spouses. When requesting links to parents or spouses, please use the Findagrave "Edit" tab in the upper right corner of each individual listing, rather than a request on my message board here. Thanks for your consideration.

Mary Catherine Weidner
I am going through a postcard album of Mary C Weidner who is my ggrandmother. The dates on the postcards range from 1908-1913. She lived in Albion in 1910 and 1911 with her son Calvert Weidner and his wife Blanche (Austin). Do you know if the Austin School is named after her family? Her son, James A G Weidner also lived nearby. I have been trying to locate the friends who wrote to her from Albion when she was back home in OH or visiting her daughter in Colorado. Such names as Porr, Eckmyer, Huffman, Dunn, and Klein appear in her album. I think I have found most of these people on the 1910 census on W. Mich St or W. Washington, St. Mary lived at 111 N. Eaton St. I find it interesting that she made friends wherever she visited, and the friendships continued when she settled permanently in OH with her son, David Weidner, my grandfather. I am redoing the album as it is falling apart, and it's been quite interesting. If you have anything to add about any of these people/names, I'd be appreciative. Lois Price
