Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been doing my family and my husband's family reaearch since 2008. I would love to hear from anyone who has connections. The surnames I am researching include, Bruman, Houck, Knoche, Lange, Grobbel, Dice, Howe, Seasons, and Collins. Locations include Detroit, Warren, Centerline, Lapeer, North Branch, Burnside, Five Lakes, and Kings Mill in Michigan, McLeod County in Minnesota, Shippensburg, Pennsylvania and North Adams, Massachusetts.

I have established many memorial pages as I learn the burial sites. If I have established a memorial page for someone who is dear to you, please let me know and I will do a transfer. I am not related to anyone in Tennessee, so I am willing to transfer any Tennessee memorials. Please make your request through the edit tab.

Out of respect for each individual memorialized on this site, please summarize biographical information in a nicely written paragraph rather than submitting a canned form of raw data from census records, death indices, and other documents.

Although Find a Grave allows records such as death certificates or military documents to be uploaded on the memorial pages, I would prefer you not upload them if they are findable online. It is important to leave that space available for items like photos of the person and their marker. The information found on these documents can be summarized in the biography. It is nice to open a memorial and find a cemetery photo, marker photo, or even a personal picture. I feel like I am actually virtually visiting the final resting place.

Glencoe vs. Hillcrest Cemetry
It does indeed appear to be duplicates in one fashion. The difference is that the graves are not in Hillcrest cemetery they are in the Glencoe cemetery. I've transcribed & photographed both Glencoe & Hillcrest completely. I always check for duplicates prior to posting. There was no posting in the proper cemetery for these people so I listed. Hope that helps clear things up? The boundaries for the cemetery's are not all that clear unless you know exactly where they are.

RE: DeGroff photo requests
Absolutely, I agree with your thoughts also abt. the DC. I only add them when there is no headstone, a questionable burial, badly misspelled name, important maiden name or something special. Then, when it is updated to the profile, I agree with you, the DC should be deleted after the info is recorded. Txs so much for your message - Many Blessings to You ~j~

RE: Tremblay Photo
Bummer. I had hoped it would be the one. I have an index and photos of all of the graves at Grotto and don't have any other Francis Trombley (soundex) listed. Must be one of the worn or broken markers. Apologies. The Trombly family (and all of the various spellings are one of the original settlers of NE Detroit. Many of them are buried at Grotto.

Photo with wrong graves
Hi Louise,

This photo doesn't belong with Anna Mae Swoish or her parents Joseph and Edith Swoish. It is the grave marker for Edward and Caroline Swoish. Their names were stamped into the mortar on each side of the cross. You can see the patches, the names were like the name Swoish on the front but have worn out over the years.
