|Bio and Links|
I have been interested in genealogy since 2001. I have added both family and non family members. Any additions or corrections are greatly appreciated. I have also added people that had both positive and negative contributions to society as well as some that were just caught up in events that they couldn't control. I feel we can learn from their mistakes as well as their accomplishments. Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.- George Santayana|
I like to do corrections so send me what you have, preferably using the edit tab located on the upper right hand corner of each memorial. I want the memorials to be as complete as possible. Due to time constraints I don't always reply but I will do them within the 30 day period.
Note: As of 2/23/16 I should be all caught up with corrections. Please resubmit any that I may have missed updating the memorial.

I see that you sponsored Norman Kane's memorial. Are you family? I would be glad to transfer the memorial to you, as I am not family and like to see family managing memorials.
I took a new photo of Michal's memorial and can add to or replace the current photo. I tried to take a photo of the Book Barn but the day was too leafy (!) and the camera was not up to unsophisticated to get details.
I live down Shenkel a piece and visited the Book Barn years ago. today, as you know, the property has changed hands but is maintained beautifully. I believe they're restoring the home as well.
|Pasadena Girl||RE: Marvin J Besteman|
No worries...the bio I have is short for Marvin J Besteman.
Mr. Besteman attended the University of MI where he played hockey for a short time. He married his wife Ruth in 1958 and had four children. Their son William passed away only days after his birth. He made his living as a bank president and then retired to Florida for the winter months. He is a published author "My Journey to Heaven, with Lorilee Cracker. A story of a near death experience he had in 2912. He enjoyed golfing and travel.
This is about all I know, so I'll leave it up to you how much you want to add.
|Linda Davis||RE: Donald Ross|
I think that he was cremated at that cemetery, but obviously the ashes aren't there.
Reply: I agree with that thinking.

I would love to take over the management of Marvin's memorial such as adding a short biography. Would you be willing to transfer it to me? Or I would be happy to send you a short bio. so you could add it yourself if you so desire.
|Linda Davis||RE: Donald Ross|
I have submitted a bio for his brother Alex too.
There were 3 memorials for Alex. A Bu, this cemetery one in Miami and one stating he was cremated with ashes scattered on a golf in MI. The 3 memorials were merged into the cemetery memorial with the bio from the cremated memorial.
Last week I phoned the cemetery in Miami and yes, there is an Alexander M. Ross but the dates are wrong.
Theirs was born in the 1890's and died in 1958 so I don't believe that the golfer is buried in Miami.

Just letting you know that Donald Ross Find A Grave Memorial# 55448988 was made today a Famous Memorial with the bio I submitted. Please rank the memorial.

There is another memorial for Walter Clarence Withrow that is married to Norma LaVerne Cusick in Oak Grove Cemetery with a monument (Find A Grave Memorial# 159256282). Not sure if you want/need to delete your Walter C. Withrow.

Thank you for making the edits to William Horwitz, Jr's memorial. I had gone back to add a few things on my family tree for his granddaughter this past week, and ended up spending days on Mr. Howritz. Interesting journey.
Thank you again for making the edits.
