RE: Osgood
the reference to a "flagholder" means the device to hold a flag. See my id photo to the left of this message, that is what a flagholder is. There were many different shapes but this is the one common for NE Michigan. So, Osgood was not a flagholder, nor was any soldier. His gravesite has the device to hold a small American flag which I placed there in 2013. thanks.

Regarding our recent post of additional information "He was a flag holder for the GRAND ARMY of the REPUBLIC Post-125; Department-Michigan."

The Grand Army of the Republic was a post civil war veterans organization. A flag holder is a metal device that holds a small American flag.
IF a GAR flagholder is on a veterans grave he may or may not be a member of a GAR post. Only the official roster of that post would determine his membership.

RE: Simon Freer
Ok, that sounds fine. It's good to know that a family member is taking care of the memorial. We must be long lost cousins

Tyyne Loytymaki's family
Do you know whether Tyyne Loytymaki had children? I'm doing research of her ancestors in Finland. Thanks to you I know now when Tyyne died. Please contact me if you are interested to know about Tyyne's relatives in Finland!

Latvala - Edgewood Cemetery
Have searched for your Latvala requests. Was able to find records on some. The plot has only a family stone, no individual names. Would you like me to post it?
