I began searching my family tree over 45 years ago. However, I did not go very far. Only a few generations of names and possible burial sites. Now the relatives that had those answers have long since passed on.
I rekindled the desire in 2010 when I met the DT Questers at a meeting with Ingham Township to have them catalog the Howard Cemetery. My parents, both sets of grandparents and one set of great grandparents and a set of great-great-great grandparents are buried there. Find a Grave has been very helpful in my searches.
My desire now is to work with information on my decedents in the West, Aseltine,Every and Meredith families. I want to update their memorials. Getting more complete dates and events in their lives into the memorials. Hopefully, this will make other relatives search for their roots a little easier to follow.
HOWARD CEMETERY My second goal is to get as much information about the Howard Cemetery as possible and post on the memorials. I have found quite a few more burials in this cemetery from my research. No records are available. My findings have been through old obituaries and burial permits.
OBITUARIES I have been searching old area newspapers and books. I've found more information about my relatives and the people related to them. This has given me more leads to follow. While looking up these articles, I have found many others of people in the area. I have been adding them to their memorials. I hope this will help others find more information about their searches.
Joseph C. Baldwin Mother I am searching for information on Catharine Clapp, mother of Joseph C. Baldwin. I have traced her ancestors and descendants but some questions remain about her marriage to Jesse Baldwin and her death near Hamilton, Ont. ~1832. Contact email@example.com
#54630700 Hello Connie, I came across all this info on my 4th cousin Helen Mar Hicks Dunsmore. Are you related to her? I haven't gone over everything yet but I'm looking forward to doing it. I'm just starting to working my way back to the basic family line (Hicks) after being out in left field for the past five years. I'm finding a lot of new stuff, like yours, that wasn't there back then.
