Can't thank you enough for the information and photos. I understand someone else posting photos that you accepted.

This happened to me. I had a new volunteer do this, he did not understand that you first had to accept taking the photos and then go and take the photos. He saw the posting and just went out and took the photo and posted it.

Once again thanks a million.

RE: Other Allendale MINERS
I am embarrassed to tell you that I am going through my messages and found your pictures of my miner family gravestones. Since your message is still here, I think I did not thank you for taking the time to track them down. So...rather late...thank you so much for taking the pictures. I appreciate your assistance. What would we do without our HELPERS?

Willis E. Baker
Thank you for your efforts! Anna Schow is Willis's mother. I didn't know her final married name at death when I put in the request. Willis was a Modern Woodman of America so I guess I was hoping for a fancy flowered tree/log monument. I know he was dirt poor so I guess he had to go for the minimum life insurance for burial.

Thanks again and God Bless!

Fulton Street Cemetery
Thank you so much for your nice work on the Holmquist/Telder/Kornoelje grave sites. Leon Holmquist was my dad's brother who died in 1925 on his 6th birthday. Johannes Kornoelje was my 2X great grandfather. Peter and Kobi Telder were my 3X great grandparents. Gerrit Telder was my 2X great grandfather. Paul and Kate Telder were my grandmother's siblings. Just one little note: Kate died in 1903 at the age of 11. She was born in 1892.
Again, thank you so much for the nice picture and work. I had a paper with the names of the people buried there and have been out to the cemetery, but this picture is such a nice visual of the site.

RE: Warren UTTER
Thank You Jay for helping with Warren Utter. It is appreciated. Semper Fi. Our youngest is still in the Marine Corps but only for a month longer. After that they are all home. So proud that they each served our country but also very happy they are all out. 12 years of all 3 being in was scaring, especially while in a war zone.
Thank You for your service.
What cemeteries do you do? I have alot of family in the Grand Rapids area cemeteries.

Thanks very much for the time and trouble you took to find and photograph the monument of James W Wright, I really appreciate it! Not having a name on it must have made it particularly difficult. Thanks for the extra effort, and all you've done to honor those who have gone before.
