Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Valerie, I am originally from the Bay Area in California and I lived in New Jersey for some time as well.I am currently living in Southern Michigan. I love genealogy and Find A Grave has played a big part in my research. After knee and leg surgeries, I thought walking around cemeteries would be good therapy and it has been but I have found taking photos of headstones for people has also been very rewarding.If I have created a Memorial of any of your family, that is not part of my family, please let me know and I will transfer them to you.

If James and Mary Echler aren't a part of your family, would you consider a transfer so I can add the link to Mary's parents (my 2nd great grandparents) and other info I have?

Maple Grove Cemetery
Hi, Valerie,
Do you live near Maple Grove, aka Blount, Cemetery? I am trying to locate the grave of a Lorenzo Rainier and his wife, Pauline. Plat maps show that their farm was located at the corner of what is today Lake Pleasant Road and Spott's Road, which I believe is very near this cemetery. Also, the Michigan Genweb site has a list of surnames in that cemetery that includes "Rainier", although Findagrave does not show any people of that name there, although it may be only a partial list. Do you have any suggestions on how I can find out if Lorenzo Rainier, Paulina Rainier or Lorenzo's father, William Rainier (who also lived very near that place) are buried there? Does that cemetery have a caretaker?
Thank you,
Natalie Smith
