Bio and Links
Bio Photo Here are some of the surnames I am currently researching: Smith, Becker, Roberts, Bradley, Baldwin, Strait, Allen, Moore, Hickman, Cook, Martini, King, White, Shumaker, Miller, Stull, Dawson, Anton, Thinnes/Tinnes, Jennings, Lemmon(s), Conkright, Fry, Wilson, Cabiness, Waggoner, and Barry just to name a few.

I'd be happy to transfer memorials as long as the individual is not related to me or my husband.

PLEASE USE THE MEMORIAL EDIT/SUGGESTION OPTION for both update requests and transfer requests or general inquiries about a particular memorial. We are all simply the guardians of those we have kindly added until their family comes along. It makes my day to have someone find one of my memorials and I can transfer them to family.

While adding flowers to several of my ancestors this Decoration Day it came to my attention that you appear to have been adding and deleting material to some of the sites in the last two months. Since I am a direct descendant I was surprised. It appears you have no relationship to any of these sites. I would like to know what has been altered and why.

Hi Kate,

My husband's uncle, Fransisco Villarreal, is one of the memorials you have documented in St. Mary's Cemetery in Calhoun County, Marshall, MI. We are both new to genealogy and not familiar with the appropriate protocols, but are willing to learn.

We are traveling to Benton Harbor from metro Detroit area for a wedding this weekend and would like to stop and pay our respects, but we have no idea how to locate where in the cemetery Fransisco's grave is located. Do you keep a record of the location of sites you have photographed? I just called and left a message for someone at the church hoping they could help. I have no idea if there's an onsite caretaker as I can't seem to find that information online.

Fransisco was my mother-in-laws youngest brother. He drowned in nearby Pine Lake in July of 1948 along with two cousins who are also buried at St. Mary's. Fransisco, his parents and siblings including my mother-in-law, would come to MI from Texas in the summer to do farm work. They had relatives who resided in the area. Shortly after the boys' accidental deaths, in August of 1948, their grandmother Fermina Almarez, who lived in Marshall also passed away and is buried at St. Mary's, too.

Any tips or direction you can give us on locating the gravesite would be appreciated.

Frank has an Aunt and I have the same Aunt,

We are not really related except by the aunt.laugh now, and my brothers used to pick on Frank in the playground.. not funny. And then someone who married a cousin of mine she used to do the same to me. And Frank is related to that cousin as well. Laugh a little harder now.
and Frank has this Geneaology bug and so do I.

Take care,

Since mine is a duplicate, let you switch out his wife to (My distant cousin)Franks submission, that # would be 13981804.... and then write me here to have me delete mine duplicate, please.... We need your help too.

Have a Great Weekend!

Take care,
