I love genealogy, photography and a quiet walk thru a cemetery reading old markers. I have found so much information that others have put together while researching my family tree & I often feel that this is one way I can help to pay forward and help others who may not have the ability or be in the area to look for the markers they want to see. In the cases where I am looking for one requested grave and find an entire family I generally try to get pics of all of them as well as the lot hoping others can get a feel of the area and how things are plotted out & maybe help to put family members together that they may not have known were there, especially the little kids and babies that may not have been listed on a census and have no birth or death records as they deserve their place within the family as well. I would like to thank all those who contribute and have helped me in my searches and if I have found one for somebody else I would just like to say it was my pleasure :)
Kenneth R. Wood Record added: Jul 18, 2014 Find A Grave Memorial# 133008013
My grandmother, Eva May Leslie Wood, had twins that died shortly after birth. I am wondering if Kenneth was one of them. I found another member who posted about Lillian Wood, who lived one day. The birthdate is the same. There is a large pink granite stone, inscribed Wood, near her grave and husband's (Ralph Kelsey Wood). Is there a special baby section in this cemetery, or were the babies' graves in this area? A photo or other information would be very helpful.

I am the Great-grand daughter of James Francis Rush and have been working on the family genealogy for over 30 years. But am excited that there is always MORE to find!! 2015 is the 100th Annual Rush Reunion and I have been organizing my research to print a family history. All fact are sources and accurate.

RE: Riverside / Barry Co MI Thanks so much. A few years ago, I called the lady who lived there and she told me to come out (we were there for a visit)...we arrived and someone said she had gone into town! We waited, finally decided to start looking and did in the area you mentioned with no luck...isn't that always the case :. She never returned...at least not before dark. I know it's out there because you have a picture!! Thanks again.
Riverside in Barry County, MI I have walked this cemetery twice with my husband and children looking for Langley Dickinson and his family! You have found him and a son. Thank you so much for those photos. Now I wonder if his wife and children's are covered by grass....? Is there a way to find the exact location for the next time I get up there? Joyce in Texas
