RE: North Plains Cemetery
Thanks for your help, Bonnie. I was able to talk to John today and found out what I can do about the tombstone.

George W. Reed
grave memorial: 5986471
North Plains Cemetery
Ionia, Michigan


My name is Cheryl Vilardi Donley and George W. Reed would have been a distant cousin of mine. His father, James Reed, buried near him, was my 3rd great grandfather. Two weeks ago, my husband and I went to North Plains Cemetery to pay respects, and discovered that George's gravestone is loose, falling over and can be pulled out of the ground easily. I am concerned that it can get damaged or broken. How do I go about contacting the cemetery to let them know that repairs need to be made?
Thank you for all you do at find-a-grave.

RE: Rex Ferris
Bonnie, Rex was killed while serving with Canadian troops near the end of WW I. The Canadian govt has very clear records that he is buried there.

I have found that, many times, the family will erect a stone locally even when the soldier is buried elsewhere. It makes things very confusing.

Louisa M. Charles, death date
Louisa M. Charles was married to Almon Charles as stated on her tomb stone. Their marriage date was 30 May 1847 (her death date is stated as 1837) in (ionia) Michigan. Her age was given as 20 and her birth date as 25 February 1827. Her tomb stone also states she was 30 years, 9 months and 8 days at the time of death. Her death date would be 1857 not 1837. Knew you would want to make this correction.

Parents of John Benjamin Ransom
Bonnie, Once again, I'm not a family member but am doing research on early Ionia County teachers. John Benjamin Ransom is the son of John Ransom and Ophelia Daly (see the death certificate attached to this memorial). I appreciate all you do to help so many of us with research. Mistakes happen.

Harvey Sessions, North Plains Cemetery
Bonnie, I'm not a family member but am doing research on early Ionia County teachers. Harvey Sessions (1826-1865) is listed as dying 21 March 1865 at Bentonville (Johnston) North Carolina. The note states he died at the Battle of Bull Run. Bull Run had two battles; 1st was July 21, 1861 and the 2nd was 28-30 August 1862. The Battle of Bentonville, in North Carolina, took place on 19-21 March 1865. I believe the note needs to be changed as "Died in Battle of Bentonville."
