Bio Photo Retired.

I have been researching our families since the 1970's. I am elated to be part of the loving findagrave internet community. These past years I have received blessings from so many of you through the tombstone photos taken and posted online. Many of these are of graves I will never have an opportunity to see in person. Thank-you!

Ethel Roth Shimel memorial, Fairview Cemetery Manton, MI
I was responding to a request for grave photos on the Roth family. Evidently, while trying to fill in Memorials for everyone in that plot, I added Ethel's duplicate. Thank you for bringing that to my attention. I have deleted the duplicate. If there are any memorials, which I have posted, that you relate to, I will be happy to transfer them to your care.

RE: Milton Morse Perry
Hello Judith, I'm not related to Milton, just an avid Grand Rapids History person. I bought this letter on ebay because I collect GR memorabilia,and did some research to find out who wrote it. I would be glad to send you a copy of the letter if you are interested?

RE: Daniel Tuttle
I can't read it easily.

I can try photographing it again sometime under different light conditions. There was also a drizzle coming down when I took that photo, so it may be somewhat darker than it looks when dry. Many headstones there are hard, if not impossible, to read. Possibly poorer-quality stone or perhaps some kind of harsh cleaning was done on them at some time, like bleaching or pressure washing (both very bad to do). Some are blistering and the inscriptions will eventually fall off:

For many stones in order to identify them I have to try to match what little I can read with past transcriptions that have been done, in this case:

"In memory of David Tuttle
"who departed this life
"May 17, 1841
"in 72nd yr of his age."
Broderick, Frances D. The Burial Grounds of Lansingburgh, Rensselaer County, New York. Lansingburgh, NY: Frances D. Broderick, 1965. 80

I'd transcribe it as:

Memory of
Who departed this life
May 17, 1841
In the 72[nd] year
of his age.

RE: Milton M Perry & Family
Hi, Judith, I'm not related to Milton, just an interest in local history, and I have the Rathbun House letter he wrote in my collection. I was curious on who he was and did a little research on the family.From what I could find he was the oldest of three brothers. I would enjoy any information you have you share, but not related to the Perry family.

Judith -------I know "the Bogart family: Tunis Gysbertse Bogaert and his descendants" book well.
i am from Tunis Gysbertse Bogaert born 1625 -died 1699 and Sarah Rapalje born 1625-died 1685, dau of Joris Rapalje and Catalina Trico.
Tunis and Sarah Rapalje had a daughter Catalyntje Bogaert bapt 1657 that married Jan Van Middleswaert born 1654 (by the way -----it is NOT spelled Mitt --it is Van Middleswaert ----which means "from Middleswout", a part of Flatbush. That area is where they lived before moving to Somerset New Jersey by the Raritan River. Jan Van Middleswaert and his wife and his brother and sister in law Cornelius Tunison (wife was Neeltje, sister of Jan's wife ) and also jeronimus Rapalje who was married to Jan and Cornelius's sister.
I was helping a Van Middlesworth descendant as it appears her ancestor Andrew Van Middlesworth bapt 1752? and wife Sarah BOGART, dau of Jacob Bogaert, moved to Cayuga county, NY and then Andrew and Sarah 's son Jacob Van Middlesworth moved to Livingston County and in 1825 was an elder in the Presbyterian church there.
I got the information for Union Corners cemetery from the Livingston County Historical society who gave me the survey from 1935 i think it was.
Very poor records there.
Is this your family you are writing me about ?
I am not sure what you want me to do ===do you want me to add things to the cemetery? do you want to take over these graves ?
I wrote exactly what was in the survey
Please let me know what you want me to do as i dont quite understand from your message. I am a Bogart descendant also.

I wondered if this little one was of interest or relation to you.

Grace Ackerman (63307359)
I cannot attach Grace Ackerman to her parents as I am not the person who created Grace's memorial. You'll need to go to her memorial (63307359) and send an SAC to Deb Minniear Rush asking her to attach the parents (Alex - 111844203) & (Emma - 73202067). Send her Grace's obituary, too, as she will need to add it to Grace's Bio.

Catherine Weeks
I was able to go back to Copley Cemetery today and photograph the correct Catherine Weeks. I also took photos of five other Weeks' headstones: Nellie, Harry, Gladys, Arthur and Myron. They have all been posted to Find A Grave.
