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.

RE: Emma M. Cromer
Hi Laura,
Would it be possible to forward that " group photo"?
I'd like to attempt to enhance focus and contrast. Maybe it'll work... Maybe it won't.
Would need the largest possible version (megabits, pixel) that you have, for best results.
If yes, please, send to email:
Thank You, again!

I must give you a special thanks for all the edits that you are helping with. When I have a photo to place where you have done the memorial already- I want to yell- YES!! Thanks for your support.

RE: Mona View Cemetery updates
Thank you for the offer. The Barnhill's in Mona View are uncles/cousins of my grandmother. I'd love to manage the memorials if you aren't attached to them. Would you like me to make the request through the edit tab?

Not a problem, I was glad to remove the duplicates. I do so many Memorials that sometimes the law of averages catches up with me even when I check the Find A Grave data base first. :-)

RE: Claiming all of Cheboygan
Oh "submit the corrections and you'll be happy to make the corrections." Does that translate into; you are going to hold onto all the people in Cheboygan, like you have been doing? Is that how you answer a question? That is exactly what you have been doing and the work is not getting done and the family members continue to not have their own family. Is that what you are saying?

RE: Claiming all of Cheboygan
I am more than aware of the new changes.

They ARE MY FAMILY members, not my husbands.

As far as being are extremely disrespectful to family members wishing to place more feelings into their memorial pages than can be placed there by someone who is doing a data key punch service. Therefore, you should take a double look at who is being rude. All I did was state the facts.

Claiming all of Cheboygan
Are you still claiming all of the people in Cheboygan or can people such as myself now update these records to share with their families?

You just holding onto to them all to "sort out" your husband's side of the family is extremely unfair when they can be updated. Several people are asking why I am not updating them and I explain how you will not transfer them to family members.

Currently, the O'Connor family in St. Francis needs to be updated. No one is linked together, you have people named Mrs. Frank O'Connor, you have incorrect or no dates at all. I can have all of them completed within 15 minutes.

Consider how many people you hold back from doing there family trees due to your selfishness in holding on to them. If it turns out one is a relative of your husband...then it is a win win situation for all involved.

RE: Charlotte Gaylord
Dear Laura,

You are most welcome. I was very happy when I saw your grandmas
stone. Those guys really did the work and on their own volition. Few
town agencies would go so far to make restorations

John Gaylord 1714-1778
According to the book "Families of Ancient New Haven" by Donald Lines Jacobus, John Gaylord was born in Durham, Ct and died in Bristol, CT.

While looking for Benjamin Gaylord, I found this information and thought you might want it. There are several pages of Gaylords in this book and if you are interested, I can scan the pages and send them to you in an email. The date range is 1641 to the mid 1800's. These books were written in 1923.
