My maiden name is Nichols and I have been doing genealogy since 1995. Some of my family names include Nichols,Sherman, McNitt, Wing, and Purdy from the Branch County, Michigan area, on my father's side. Davis, Vian, and Keyes, from Ohio on my mother's side. I would like to give Judy Sherman all the credit for writing the bios on my sites, She has done a wonderful job. Thank you Judy. I have been working on some of the cemeteries in Branch County, Michigan and would be happy to do transfers if you are related, unless they are my family members. You are more than welcome to use but not sale any pictures I put on find a grave.
RE: Jesse M Rawson Brenda, Thanks for the welcome to Findagrave. I know I'm trying... I went to the funeral for Jesse Melvin Rawson's spouse, Clela B Baker Rawson (Memorial# 101306621). It was a bit awkward, but was able to get quite a bit of information from the (my) relatives, although we had never met before. Many were in from Texas. By the way I show Clela's middle name to be "Clementine" but it contradicts what is on the grave stone. I need to check more. Thanks for approving my edits. Mike Baker (#48914211)
RE: Jesse M Rawson Thanks Mike I will appove the edits, just wanted to make sure. Brenda Added by Brenda Runyon on Apr 11, 2016 8:40 AM
RE: Jesse M Rawson Hello Brenda, You are quick to respond to my edits... Yes, (Melvin) appears to be a family name, used as a middle name in at least three generations according to my records. Thanks for questioning it, we need to be accurate. Mike Baker
[Send Reply] Jesse M Rawson Hi Mike Welcome to find a grave. You sent me an edit for Jesse and also Edward giving me the same middle name ( Melvin) did you mean to do that? I will wait to hear from you before I ok the edits. Thank you Brenda
Benjamin Scamehorn I appreciate the transfer so much. I knew that Benji was buried in Quincy but my friend couldn't remember the name of the cemetery. I am so glad that you made the memorial and linked him to his parents.
We have a black and white photo of his headstone with his parents beside it all those years ago. I will find it and post it.
My friend told me the story of Benji's death and I put it in his bio.
Again, I really, really appreciate the transfer and my friend and her sister will be very excited to see the memorial.
RE: Margaret Armstrong O'Dell Thank You for your Thank Yous!! :) FYI, in 1805 the Armstrong's neighbor in Livonia New York was the family of Reuben Runyan's (1765-abt1844). Thought you may find interest with that.
RE: Caleb Burlingame. Thank you for doing the updates so quickly and looking for his wives. I may have to do a road trip out there this summer and see if I can find anyone else. Much appreciated, Jessica
