Bio and Links
Bio Photo 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 :)

Hello, can you tell me if this Sprague family, most specifically Eli Sprague and/or spouse were related to anyone in the Vredenburgh/Vredenburg/Fredenburg family.
Many thanks!

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.

Hi mm,

Thanks so much for the memorials for the Hinman Family.

Erastus M Hinman
Mary E Phelps Hinman (1900 Census = b. Feb 1840)

Catherine M "Kitty" Hinman, b. 1867 d. 1875
Anna Hinman, b. 1881 d. 1881
Fanny Hinman, b. 1881, d. 1881

Can you correct Anna's birth date: I think it was a typo, since underneath it says 1 day.

And perhaps link the children to the parents?

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 least not before dark. I know it's out there because you have a picture!! Thanks again.
