RE: information about Dr J E Tomlinson Michael -- I am so glad you contacted me. I made a mistake when I posted the photo of Dr. J E Tomlinson's grave area. The photo was of another photo request at the Oak Creek cemetery. I still do not know where Dr. Tomlinson is buried but I do have contacts in Oak Creek who are on the Oak Creek Cemetery board. I will speak to them and find out for certain where Dr. Tomlinson is, and will post the correct photo then. I also intend to go to the Tracks and Trails Museum in Oak Creek as it looks like they have an obit on file for Dr. Tomlinson. I will post that obit for you when I find it.
RE: photo of Leroy Wenz garve I have already added the photo to Leroy's memorial. As I explained in the caption on Irene's memorial according to cemetery records Leroy and Irene share the same plot (perhaps she was cremated ?), but there is no separate marker for Irene. I will remove the photo from Irene's memorial if you would like but there is no other marker for her.
Annie Jennie Cross Sherwood #48250491. There is a duplicate for her. Added November 19 2012 #100941378 name Jennie Cross Sherwood. There is a headstone photo. Thought you could get with the other member and decide what you want to do. Her name is Annie Jennie Cross Sherwood. Thanks Diane
looking for tintype Michael, I was extremely excited to see an image of my GGGrandfather here. I noticed you posted an image from a tintype photo of Fredrick Maltman North Rome Cemetery, Lenawee County, Michigan. I am inquiring as to the whereabouts of that image, if there are more and how I could get a copy. Any info you can share would be greatly appreciated!
You wrote "Lot 9" for the grave of Luther Dean buried at Newburgh Cemetery in Livonia. Do you have a map of Lot locations?
I would really like to see the 8x12 ledger mentioned below but have not yet tracked it down: The Newburgh Cemetery Society organized 23 Nov 1832 in a log cabin schoolhouse (now known as Newburgh School). Officers were: Luther Dean, President; Wm. B. Dean, Treas., Samuel Ely and George Durfee, Trustees; Ebenezer Smith, Secretary. each lot was 9' x 25'.￼ [Heritage of Livonia, a collection of articles on the early settlers of Livonia, ed. Dominic P. Paris, pub. for Livonia Hist. Soc. by the Optimist Club of Livonia, LDS Film #0928088] The records of this burial society are said to have been kept in a ledger, 8 x 12, which is either in the possession of the Livonia Historical Society or the Michigan Collection in Lansing. It contains a plot of the cemetery, together with minutes of all the meetings held from 1832 to 1923. The price of a lot was set as 50 cents, and also entitled the lot owner voting privileges. 53 member of the community purchased lots, varying from 1-5, and each lot was 9 x 25.
