Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm happy to make transfers. I need you to make your request using the “EDIT” tab on the memorial you wish transferred. That step saves time for me, as it gives me all the info I need in one place.

After spending a few years researching my family tree, I found very little information available on burials. When I found this site, I decided to volunteer, thinking it may help someone else researching their families.

I live in Baker, LA now, born and raised in Baton Rouge, and spent 3 years in Central Michigan in the late 1960's.

Hi Rita, Could you please transfer Marie Alicia Legier Meche Memorial #23137703. She is a relative of mine and I'm trying to link her to the rest of her family. I'd really appreciate it. Thanks!

RE: George R. Gillmer # 22977569
Oh, no. Did I mess it up? It's so confusing to enter the numbers and not the names. Anyhow, here's how it should be:

Ella May LINK
b 27 SEP 1879 Martiny, Mecosta, MI
d 01 OCT 1962 Big Rapids, Mecosta, MI
bur Martiny Township Cemetery, Mecosta, MI

m1. 02 DEC 1894 Martiny, Mecosta, MI

James William GILLMER
b __ MAR 1877 CANADA
d 1900 - 1903
I do NOT know where he's buried

Ella May LINK

m2. 14 NOV 1903 in Big Rapids, Mecosta, MI

George Richardson GILLMER
b 07 JUL 1874 CANADA
d 01 OCT 1962 Big Rapids, Mecosta, MI
bur Martiny Township Cemetery, Mecosta, MI

James and George were brothers. Their parents were:

b 1834 - __ AUG 1836 ONTARIO, CANADA
d 1921 MI
bur Martiny Township Cemetery, Mecosta, MI

m. 14 SEP 1873 Elgin, ONTARIO, CANADA

b 1844 - __ JAN 1848 CANADA
d 1921 - 1927 MI
bur Martiny Township Cemetery, Mecosta, MI

Does THAT straighten things out?

RE: Ella May Link & Gillmer
I found several trees on Ancestry. I started searching for Charles Leroy GILLMER, so I could find his parents. The trees from which I gleaned that information are "A Grove of Family Trees," "London Family Tree," and "John Boogher Family Legacy." What got me started is that my cousin Roger Cunningham is married to Pattricia GILLMER whose father was Charles "Chuck" Edwin GILLMER, son of Charles Leroy GILLMER, son of James William GILLMER, son of James M. GILLMER. The "London Family Tree," continues for several more generations back, but I was only doing a 5-generation chart for Patt to see if she's even interested in doing more research. The owner of that tree is identified only as londondaileyjl. If you do NOT have access to an Ancestry subscription, let me know and I will try to get more information for you.
