|Anonymous||Thank you for the photos|
Sandra, thanks so much for the photos you've posted here. I do family history research and just today I came across some information showing that an Irish relative, Nathaniel Montgomery, died in Ohio in 1917. I was surprised, as I knew that two of his sisters had immigrated to the US and settled in Michigan, but we had never heard that anyone else of that generation had immigrated. (He was the brother of Margaret Craig, 1884-1979, whose picture you also took.) Because of your work, those of us who live far away from Michigan now have pictures of our relatives' markers. Thanks again.

Spiller info please?
Hello, I see you created a memorial for Benjamin 25648017 and Elizabeth 25648034 Spiller. There are places of birth listed for each of them, could you please tell me how you know the places of birth. I need the info of exactly where that came from. They are my 5th Gr Grandparents. Thanks so much,
You should contact Charlene Kempler and John Bracchi. John has the memorial now and I know Charlene and John have done research on this family. They too are related. Patricia

Hi Sandra - Thank you for adding Barbara E. Eastman Scott to the website. I stopped by several weeks ago to see if I could remember where her grave is. I went to the back where there is a plot map, but no names on it. Can you give me a little more info besides the back of area K? Also, who takes care of the cemetery? Are there funds from the township or county? Thank you.

Hi Sandra, you are doing a wonderful job. I am currently working on adding old information from the genealogical periodical "Saga of Southern Illinois". On page 34 on the 1976 issue, under the title "Another Veteran of War of 1812" John W. Swofford is mentioned as settling in Franklin County, IL, after the war. He died 17 July 1841, and is buried at East Fork in Franklin Co. His son, William A. Swofford was appointed guardian for his two minor children, John Leland Swofford & James Marion Swofford, and submitted a claim for bounty land in their behalf. (BLWT 5435-80-55). Just thought this might be of interest of some of your readers." Sincerely, Karr Ross.

Good evening, Sandra! I was reading your findagrave bio and note you mention Ron Miller. I met Ron Miller one time when I was researching Lenawee County and we discovered that we are distantly related on the Harriott lines of our trees.
I have several ancestors buried in Lake Ridge. Thomas Maynard 1812-1876 (originally from England) and his wife, Caroline (Colman) Maynard. Thomas and Caroline are my 3X great grandparents.
And there is Michael Carter and his family located not very far from the Maynard's. Michael Carter (1822-1907) and his first wife Martha (Skinner) Carter are my 3X great grandparents. Martha died very young and Michael remarried to Mary (Martin) Carter. Both wives are buried with Michael, along with several young Carter children.
Ron does a phenomenal job of restoring the headstones. I took my father to Lake Ridge after I met Ron and he was so impressed with how our ancestors are cared for!

I was wondering if you are descended from Isaac & Mary (Fisher) Adams (memorial #82838325) since you posted a clipping of an obituary to her memorial. I have a copy of an album page with a photo of Isaac and a photo of a woman who I believe is probably Mary Fisher. Hand written beside the woman's photo it says she is my ancestor's step-mother, but no name. The woman in the photo is clearly older than 37, which is apparently the oldest any of Isaac's other wives lived to be. I wondered if you might have any photos to compare mine to. If I can reasonably confirm the identity of the woman in my photo, I would like to upload it to her memorial. Either way, I'm glad I found the obituary because it has so much information! Thanks for adding it.
