Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in, and collecting, family history since I was child. Most of my great great grandparents came to Oceola and Deerfield Townships in Livingston County, MI in the 1830's to the 1850's and stayed there. They came from New York, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts and Maine. Many were pioneers in western New York for a while before moving on to Michigan.

As a child we spent a lot of time visiting local cemeteries. We were there to tend relatives' markers, but the cemeteries were filled with lots of other ancestors. I always found it fascinating.

Now, I'm really enjoying finding out about and documenting who all those ancestors were. Along the way I have met so many wonderful and generous people who have shared their stories and their quest.

I am currently assisting the Bull Family Association by collecting information on descendants of William Eager and Ann Bull. Please contact me if you are related to them.

Photo Usage
Hello! I would like to attach (with appropriate credit given) a couple of the photos you took for me at Greenwood Cemetery (David/Elizabeth Steckley) to my tree on Ancestry.

May I please have your permission to do so?

Thanks for considering my request. :)

RE: Marion Filkins Correction
I always try to send along corrected information when I find it. I have had so much help from others it is the least I can do.

David/Elizabeth Steckley
Thanks so much for fulfilling my request for a headstone photo for David Steckley. But most of all, thank you for also taking a photo of his wife's stone and creating a memorial for her! I wasn't sure if she was buried with her husband so now, thanks to your diligence, another piece of the puzzle is complete. Much appreciated!

RE: Comfort in Livingston
Bob, Thank you for your kind words. I'm glad I corresponded with you early in my Find A Grave and genealogy journey. You've been very helpful and I appreciate your knowledge. Rather than keeping the information buried in an email, I thought what better place than to put it right on the memorial until the unknown sources can be verified. Comfort will be cared for. Thanks again. Loretta

Comfort in Livingston
Hi Robert, I see you've been busy! You've been tending to Comfort's tombstone. :) That's a very nice close-up of the inscription. Still sorting relations out for his memorial. Thank you for all of your work. Loretta

Klaus Photo Requests
Hi Bob,

Thank you so much for filling my two photo requests for Fred and Winifred Klaus in Sandusky, Sanilac County. I really appreciate it.

It would take me about three hours each way to drive there.

Thanks again,
