Bio and Links
Bio Photo I find 'Find A Grave' a great research tool. I'm retired, living in Traverse City, Michigan and using genealogy as a way of keeping my mind active. I have been president of Grand Traverse Area Genealogical Society and am a member of Austin Family Association of America.

I do transfers, links, change information and anything else I can to make FAG a place that is user friendly. It is the members of Find A Grave who make it great place to spend your research time.

If you are related to any person on my memorial list, send me and e-mail or a public message about your family.

My family lines are Austin, Penix/Penick, Paradis, King, Bowman, Joseph, Taft, Seelye, Todd, Pinette, Nadeau, Rose, Reed, Barker, Lovejoy, and Foster.

RE: Tammy
The mix-up Tammy made with the Bellaire and Mancelona cemeteries is one we've seen with others too. And even more common a mix-up between the 2 Mancelona cemeteries. Very difficult to sort out!

Tammy obviously needs to read the rules for Find A Grave.

She has entered multiple pages after one already exists. If she wants a memorial to be transferred, that can be requested. But entering an entirely new memorial when one already exists just creates more problems in the future. We realize she has only been a member for 3 years, but the correction requests should be going to her, not us.

Yes, you're right, Tammy did duplicate our memorials rather than send an edit to correct the spelling of the last name. Be that as it may, we'll delete ours.

RE: Frank Leary
Your husband has a closer relationship. Thank you for the offer but at this time I don't think I should ask for transfer of management. If I find any new information I will contact you through his Find A Grave number.
Frank's wife Lillian Monks was the 1/2 sister of Herbert Monks
my grandmother's 2nd husband. They are buried in Fairplains Cemetery in Grand Rapids, MI.
Do you have any picture that you can scan of Lillian or Frank Leary to put in Find A Grave?
I have many ancestors on my mother's side buried in Ionia Co., MI., many in Highland Park Cemetery.
In 1878 my grandfather Frank F. Foster, mother and siblings moved to Ionia County from Henderson Co., IL.
Surnames: Foster, Macklin, Carr, Monks, Brown, Turflinger, LaDow-Ladow, Johnson for just a starter.

Lillian M. Monks m. Frank Leary
I probably wrote to you in the past but I have the management for Lillian Leary and notice you have her husband Frank Leary. Do you have an obituary on him to scan onto his memorial site? I found hers and scanned it.
How are you related?
Lillian's 1/2 brother Herbert Monks was the 2nd husband of my grandmother Elfa Rose Babcock, Foster.
He was a wonderful step-father to my mother.
