Bio and Links
My husband Don and I work on the family tree and also add names and take photos at the cemeteries. I am originally from Waterford, Michigan and my husband is from Mayville, Michigan. After we married we lived in Clarkston, Michigan and for the past 12 years in Florida. We started working on our family genealogy in 2009.
Our focus on my husband's side is the Phelps, Lumley, Friars and Walker families from Mayville, Tuscola County, Michigan and Ontario Canada. We also research Swoish, Scharf, Kohler from Lapeer, Michigan.
For my side I research Powell from Athens County, Ohio and Stephenson from Perry County, Ohio.

If I add a relative of yours I would be more than happy to transfer them to you to further their memorial.


If I added a relative and you wish me to remove it please just ask.
All the photos I place on this site may be used by their family members at any time.
Please feel free to contact me.

Swoish cousin
Maybe you have something in your records to help solve my mystery. I have a photo postcard that was in my great-granfather's effects. The photo is of a tall thin woman standing with a girl of of no more than 8 yrs of age at the most and 5 yrs of age at the earliest. They are both well dressed in the fashion of the time. The woman has a lot of dark hair, done up. Her face very obviously favors the Swoish family.

The post mark is from Rosebud, Michigan Oct 13, 1911.

Dear Cousin Joe.

Not heard any more from you folks. Thought I would send one of my postals. This is Marie's oldest Loretta. We are all well and hope you are all the same. Come up some time and see us.

Your Cousin Caroline

I have been trying for 30 yrs to place these three woman in the tree with no success. Do you have a clue?

Caroline looks to me to favor Catherine Scharf Halpin, but I can get no id on the two other females to make a confirmation.
