Bio and Links
Bio Photo I find 'Find A Grave' a great research tool. I'm retired, living in Traverse City, Michigan and using genealogy as a way of keeping my mind active. I have been president of Grand Traverse Area Genealogical Society and am a member of Austin Family Association of America.

I do transfers, links, change information and anything else I can to make FAG a place that is user friendly. It is the members of Find A Grave who make it great place to spend your research time.

If you are related to any person on my memorial list, send me and e-mail or a public message about your family.

My family lines are Austin, Penix/Penick, Paradis, King, Bowman, Joseph, Taft, Seelye, Todd, Pinette, Nadeau, Rose, Reed, Barker, Lovejoy, and Foster.

HI Mary...I see you are in Traverse. My husband's grandmother's sister was married to Bill Martinek, who as his father before him, owned the jewelry store downtown. IN my NOyes family, Amos's daughter Nellie Jessie Noyes was married to John Harris who was mayor of Boyne City for a time. I love that area. Nancy

RE: Noyes
Amos Noyes was my Greatgrandfather. His son Charles Pease Noyes, Clara's brother, was my grandfather. I wasn't just gathering up dead people! This is my family. Nancy

RE: Naylor
I will keep looking. I don't remember who is buried where but go to the cemetery fairly often so I will check to see which arms of the family are buried where. I've checked one part of the family and it is maintained by sunshine girl (??I think--don't remember for sure now.) I will let you know if I find any others.

RE: Naylor Family
I think that sounds fine--although I don't know what it requires. I am fascinated by this web site and anxious to read more FAQ's to learn more. I would like to put more of Leland Cemetery on here and possible St. John's Lutheran. Depends on my skill levels! Thank You for putting on the Naylor's!! I appreciate it and it was fun to discover!!
