RE: Eliza Permelia Smith Whitman
Hi Jenny
I think we may have shared some family info years ago concerning the Smith & Storms family in Bridgeton. I don't see a memorial for CHARLES N. SMITH who is husband of ELLEN JANE SMITH both buried in Bridgeton. I am including this obit. I hope to come up there this summer to take some photo's myself. Charles & Ellen are my gr-grandparents.

Charles N. Smith died at his home, 60 Webster St., Grand Rapids, Michigan, Monday, May 6th, 1907; age 70 years, 4 months, 23 days, of chronic bronchitis.
Deceased was born at Albany, NY, he moved with his parents overland to Canada, afterwards moving to Jackson, Michigan, Kalamazoo, Alpine and Plainfield. When he was eighteen he located at Bridgeton, Michigan, where he married Ellen Smith. To this union six children were born. His wife Ellen died June 2nd 1895. He was married September 15, 1901 to Mrs. Susan Babcock at Grand Rapids, Michigan, residing there until his death.
A funeral sermon was preached Wednesday afternoon,, May 8th, the Rev. McNemer of the Scribner St. Baptist church officiating. His remains were taken by train Thursday a.m. to Grant, and a second sermon was preached at the Sand Creek schoolhouse Thursday at 2:30. He was laid to rest beside his wife Ellen in the family plot. He is survived by his six children: Leon Smith, of Garfield twp, Jessie, of Northern Michigan. Mrs. Wm. Garvey of Muskegon; Mrs. J. Chittister of Muskegon, Clark of Ashland twp, and Earl of Muskegon, also the second wife and three step-children.
He was a man of good habits; kind to his family, and was loved by all who knew him

Israel's daughter was Mary Catherine Hamel died Oct 26, 1938 but I have Dearborn Michigan born 1870 Ontario Canada. I would like to look into this further

If the snow ever goes away, I will go over and take another look - as much as we have had so far in December, it may take until mid-June before it all melts!!

RE: Clara Morgan Colligan
Hi Jenny;
I cannot say for sure where Clara Colligan is buried. The only information I have is from the death certificate, so it is possible that she is buried at St. Bart's. I have photographed that cemetery also and did not find a marker for here there. If you find anything definitive let me know and I will change it. I have added to the memorial that it is possible she is buried at St Bart's.

Hi Jenny,

Just as an information update, I added a new memorial for Wilma L. Ross Harkness (# 122074606) and linked it to her mother Emma E. Whitman Ross and father Asa E. Ross, which are memorials you created.

Thanks for creating them!
