RE: Frank & Lucy Strang
Unless there is an empty grave at Isadore,which could have been changed,Frank should be at Isadore.
It could be the church would not allow him to be buried there because of the divorce.
Frank's parents and two brothers are there as well.
His brother Joseph is in Oakwood Catholic and sister Josie is at St. Rita's in Maple City.
I can not move like a normal person as I still have nerve damage which limits my abilities some days.
I will double check this out as I will document this either through the courthouse in Lake Leelanau as nobody is usually at rectory anymore for records in Isadore and will get back with you.

RE: Frank Strang #154338606
He must also have a headstone with his second wife at Mt. Calvary. There is activity at the grave.I was told by relatives that was buried there.His family would take the transfer quicker, but left with me as it had an open invitation.
I knew he'd been married more than once.He was a brother- in law of my great grandfather's cousin.
It's not unusual to end end up with more than one headstone,especially with more than one marriage.
MY grandmother's cousin,Ben Fleis has two, one with each wife.First is at Oakwood Catholic,second is at Solon Twp. near his brother Frank Flees. I had spent time with these guys after my grandmother died,just to know them a little better,when Ben's son Larry pulled me over at age 18.
Larry was surprised that I'd remembered the details.Little did Larry know he had stage 4 lung cancer at the time of his father's funeral.

Thank you for taking the picture of her headstone. She died shortly after the birth of her daughter and then the daughter's father moved away from Traverse City. I've always wondered what became o her daughter for I have a childhood book of Tillie's and I thought it should be given to her daughter. But, at present, I've lost her trail.
thanks again, Marlas Smith Hanson

Frank R. Strang
I was wondering if you found it in an obit or another source. I still looking for some info on Lucy,probably died at home in Leelanau Co.
Strangs have several ties to Flis/Cerkowski/Winowiecki side of my family.
i just attended the memorial for a little girl (39) whose boyfriend was related to Strangs. I had known her parents before she was born.

Thanks for the photo. It appears this marker is a cenotaph because he is actually buried in England where he died.
