Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've recently have moved to a different county (outside of Gladwin Co.,) note: this Move won't affect any of my work back in Gladwin County, Michigan & hopefully this Move will now provide us a New Opportunity to Expand. Seems I have a Perfect New Landscape to work with. So, I pray the LORD will guide me & Bless each of us. As we continue doing what we do! Spreading the Love & Joy of helping others find their Ancestry. Thank You!

Below: You'll find a Website Link. Which, will tell you much of (my) work in Gladwin County, Michigan.

You may use whatever you find useful from anyone of my 'FAG' memorials. One need not Ask Permission from me to use the information nor a Photo I've taken.

Its my Belief! anyone who has lost a Loved one... Deserves the Best. Regardless, if one is Paid to Provide a Service or one is Volunteering his or her Service. These Survivors have 'Paid' a lot in the System. As well as all of us have. No-one can escape Death. So all of us are Invested equally in this.

When it comes to Obituaries... I will Add them... Mainly, because the Surviving Spouse or Family member typically Authors the Obituary - Pays a High Cost of having it Published & its only in Fairness we pay Tribute to (our) Shared Ancestors.

Most don't object to this approach. As long as one is doing no harm. Like claiming Authorship/Ownership, any Pay, Source correctly (Properly showing others where to get a Hard Copy) Fairness, generally is defined as Treating & Permitting everyone across the Board equally. This is what I'm trying to do here!

Last, statement i'll make is: I've noticed a lot of (FAG Contributors) mentioning FAG Rules. However, they leave off one stated below:

[Also, the goal is not to "own" every memorial of those to whom you are related. The ultimate goal should be to have meaningful, accurate memorials that honor those who have passed away, regardless of who created the memorial or who maintains it.]

Remember this is a Volunteer Site helping others. If we are Volunteering (our) Services & most of us are... We should be doing what is Right. Focusing, on Honoring those who came before us... FAG Rules are meant only as a Guide. So, many FAG Contributors are taking these RULES way too Strict.

P.S. Some Counties, love this [Free} Service & want all their [Full} Obituaries posted. In hopes of helping Families reconnect. Isn't this part of Newspaper or Funeral Homes Directors/Owners wishes? I believe there Mission Statement is to provide Excellent service in their communities. Right? Example of Full Text Obituary being Posted online. See: However, its Best to Ask Questions & [Know your Rights]

For me! I just want my Contributions lift up JESUS. Who I believe works in all of us... To me he is the One who truly owns this & should be thanked.

I'm not Claiming Ownership. I just love doing what I have been Blessed with.

RE: Re: William Charles Stickney (?)
My info could be wrong. But William Stickney m. 1st. June A. Pike 7 Jun 1904 in Gladwibn. They had Vera Adell & Sherman M. Stickney. William m. 2nd. Mable Brady 13 Feb 1915, their children are Orville Clyde,Wallace Clinton , Gwendolyn May "Gwenie" & Delores Wilda "Dee" Stickney.
Orville's middle name is Clyde, so you are probably right. I'll do more checking, thanks

RE: Thank you for Aunt Lena's Info.
Tom, I am not a good worker like you, but one thing I am doing this year, I am making a little sign or 2 which says
"This Cemetery is on" I think when more people discover what a joy and a blessing this site can be, they will use it often and perhaps contribute. Good luck and thank you for your work, especially the obits.
