Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello! To begin, I am a LADY. Confusing first name.
On this website I am attempting to enter information from the west side of Iron County, Michigan in the Upper Peninsula, where I live. It's BEAUTIFUL here, with forests, lakes, hills, and rivers. The history of the area comes alive for me as I work on this.
I also am entering information from my own family tree and my husband's. We have 5 young adult children and one grandchild, and I'd like to preserve the family tree information for them.
I am a retired High School Librarian, so researching and recording this information is pretty thrilling & natural for me!

Terry F. Lyons
photo request for Arthur Denis
Thank you very much for your help in trying to locate Hoggy's grave marker. What you found out is also very sad for I did not know that Ronald had passed this past August. I knew both of these men and spent time in Gastra with them when Hoggy use to live down in Wisconsin. He and I use to go visit his father many times through out the years. I miss him well. Hopefully I can make the trip up there to pay my respects soon. Thank you again.

RE: headstone photo at Watersmeet
You're very welcome - glad I could help. I have also had some poor results, but they are few compared to the many good results I have had. Good luck with your research!

Monte Carlo Club
If you are interested I have photos of the Monte Carlo Club taken in 1936 by Isabelle Arts Jirak. It looks like she might have worked there being she is wearing an apron in one of them. Maybe you can help me identify some of the men in the pix.

send me your email address & I can forward them to you.

There are 7 of them and one that MIGHT be of a couple taken at this time.

My name is Sheri

I see your problem. Not sure I have an answer. Desert Lawn Cemetery is only a few miles from Hillside. I know Earl Giddings who put in the Desert Lawn grave. He is a good researcher but I am not sure he's active anymore. I could try to call him.

RE: Phillip Charles Sipper # 136183665
We have communicated several times over the years regarding relatives of mine buried in Stambaugh.

I am glad that you identified this cemetery plot as I was never sure. This person was my nephew. His father is deceased but his mother is still alive.

You could transfer this one to me for management as I will know what occurs with the family or would you please connect him with his father - Robert Sipper # 10781058. Also Phillip died on the same day he was born.

Thank you for your assistance as you have always been helpful in the past.
