My name is Karen and have had an interest in genealogy and cemeteries since I was young. My Mom's family has made it a yearly family tradition to visit family grave's after the return of my great uncle's body following WW2 and the family been going since 1947. My preschool granddaughters are the 6th generation to be visiting the graves in that cemetery. Because of my passion for cemeteries and honoring ancestry, I have started my own grave tending business providing grave beautification for families and help perserve the history in our cemeteries.
Bina West Miller Hi Karen, I wanted to thank you for the nice memorial of Bina West Miller. She was my great grandfather's niece, he being Jacob Cornelius Conant, brother of Elizabeth Conant West. Are you connected to the family? I haven't quite gotten to Cornelius' siblings yet, and am glad for all the information on Mrs. Miller. Thanks again. Rosie McNaughton
Oaklawn Cemetery in Algonac Hello Dear One - I've been working on photographing this cemetery for abt. 5 days. I'm glad to see you are helping as I could not locate these 6 remaining headstones. I've just reported a problem on the last one as I called the Algonac-Clay Twp & they have no record for Bonita Buskirk. If you speak with LAURA 810-794-9303, she will send you a great plot map for Oaklawn which is extremely helpful. She will give you the plot & you can find it on the map. You will need this before you search as there may not be any headstones on these 5 remaining graves. BEST of SUCCESS - I've discovered 2 pair of eyes works best so Thank You ! Algonac-Clay Twp is open 8am-5pm Mon-Thurs and Closed on Friday-Sun. You can stop in person to get that important plot map too, and they have a wonderful historic record book to share with details.
