Bio and Links
Bio Photo Miriam has been instructing and lecturing since 2005 to various groups in the Inland Northwest. She has been interested in her family history since she was a young girl, living in Southeast Alaska, far from her extended family in Western Michigan. In 1987, she began her genealogy research.

Ten years later, she was successful in reuniting her paternal grandmother--an adoptee--with her biological family. Miriam writes an award-winning genealogy blog, Online Historical Directories and Online Historical Newspapers websites. When not chasing dead people, she crochets, gardens, and bicycles.

If you would like Miriam to make a presentation to your group or would like to see her list of topics, please message her at this profile.

RE: David Lee Cobb
Miriam: I, too, had checked all of those resources. I do have his obituary from the Lapeer Clarion, but it gives no reference to CW service; not unusual.

I will continue searching and plan on visiting the Goodrich-Atlas museum in search of finding his obituary from Genesee County.

I appreciated your response.

David Lee Cobb

I am trying to verify that David Cobb (1854/55-1915) served in the Civil War. I can find no records. I have an obituary from the Lapeer Clarion, but no mention of CW duty - of course, not unusual.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

RE: Russel L Owen
Hi Mirian:

It's me again. I double checked, and your name is the creator of this memorial dated 2006 in Grayling, Michigan. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know I had placed a headstone photograph on the memorial.

If you don't want the memorial, you can transfer it to me #47181095. I am trying to get the entire cemetery entered onto F.A.G. Eventually, a family member will want to maintain it. Russel Owens memorial is 14746784 if you want to check it.

Yes, we are very thankful. Just got our power back on this afternoon (Wed). It's been out since Sunday afternoon. Sure appreciate it after being without for three days. I will transfer Inez's memorial to you now.
