Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love this site! I appreciate the work of people who make these memorials and those who take the photos to match. Because of the work of others I have found several 'long-lost' ancestors. I don't know that I would have found them any other way. Thank you to all who have made an entry, taken a photo, made a transfer, or created links between family members.

I am a retired teacher and I live in Michigan. I have been making entries and taking photos of the cemeteries around me in several counties. I'm happy to make edits and links and transfers.

I'm not the best photographer around, but I'm learning as I go. Please feel free to use any photo I've taken.

Hawley Harvey Find A Grave Memorial# 102313654
Thank you creating a memorial for H. Harvey. Can you tell me which source you used to verify that he is buried here? A Find A Grave volunteer went out to the cemetery today and could not locate his grave to photograph.

Thank you.

J Emerick - Oakwood Cemetery
Is there an actual marker on the grave? I know who this man is. Michigan death certificate names him 'J.H. Emerick' and the certificate states he died 5:40 AM on Dec, 27, 1922. Census tracking, marriage records and historical references give his name as John Herbert Emerick. He was born in Fulton Co. Ohio, Nov. 15, 1851. He was the son of Adam Emerick (Find A Grave #30273417) and Eveline (Tator) Emerick (Find A Grave #30273423). He is a kinsman although I am not asking for a transfer, since he does not fall under Find A Grave guidelines. I know you have a large number of memorials and probably get a lot of edit and transfer requests. All I am asking is that his memorial be updated. Thank you for your help and for your contributions to Find A Grave!

Re #54800778
John Erickson was my great-great grandfather and the headstone photo you have on his profile is not his headstone. The dates are wrong and it says Jonas D. The John Erickson in this profile (54800778) was born in 1842 and died in 1899. Could you possibly remove that headstone photo as it is not John Erickson's? Appreciate it! : )

Thank you for the info on the Morris Family in and about Mt Calvary Cemetery. Curious - any relation? My wife's great grandma was a sister to James Morris.
