Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in 1953 in Flint, MI. to Joseph and Edna (Smith) Boughner. I married Frederick D. Hoard in 1973. I have 2 daughters. I now live in the Applegate, MI area which is in the thumb of Michigan. My hobby is doing mine and my husbands' genealogy and spending time with my family. Family names of interest are HOARD, ANDERSON, BOUGHNER, EVANS, SHOLES, TUCKER, BARCK, BROWN, MILLER, ASTON, FRENCH, SMITH, MATHEWS, MATTHEWS, AND MANY OTHERS.
If I have added a loved one that belongs to you I would be more than glad to turn them over to your care if they aren't my close family.
Thank you to everyone who adds a flower for anyone in my family.

Hello chiquita
Hello miss Shirley, I'm your cousin Ron Brady.

Or at least I believe we are cousins. Via the Welsh family from Grand Rapids. I believe your line comes from George Wilson Welsh, and mine is from his sister Mary Burns welsh. She was my great grandmother, and George my great uncle.

Thank you for all the ancestry work you've done.

Thank you so much for the Salisbury transfer. That means the world to me and my family. I do apologize for it taking me so long to send this to you. Thank you so much again!

RE: Transferred Anna
Thanks for the transfer. It did make it a little easier. I've even found a some photos of the Graves Family and added them to the memorials.

RE: Graves in Downing cemetery
Hi Shirley,
Sorry for all the edits. There are a few Graves Family members in my family but I don't think any of these were. I've been trying to take photos of all the stones in Downing Cemetery and record them on Find A Grave. I've spent more time cleaning stones and driving to and from the cemetery than taking pictures though. I've been working on Downing for almost 4 years now. I've seen a lot of your work there as well.
Thank you for all your work,

RE: Matthews in Croswell cemetery

The Matthews are cousins to me and I'd be glad to take care of them until such time as perhaps a closer relative would like to take over.

Thank you very much!

Thank you for allowing me to use the photos Shirley! I really appreciate that! As for transferring, it's been awhile and I had to look to remind myself, but you already transferred her to me.

Thanks again for everything! :)

Hello! I was wondering if you would allow me to attach (with appropriate credit given) your headstone photo from this memorial to my tree on Ancestry?

Thanks for considering my request. :)
