Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Amanda Sheets. I was born and raised in the small but once popular Crystal,Montcalm County, MI.My parents are Victor and the late Jane E. Stowell-Sheets. Thus making me a proud descendant of it is...Sheets-Tyson,LaClear-Dolbee,and in the other corner we have Stowell-Drew,Wilcox-Wischnewski families. With honorable mention of my connections with the Erskin Family and Foley-Kempher families as well.
I found Find-A-Grave by pure luck as I was researching my Wilcox Wishnewski ancestors.I became a volunteer and that itself has been more rewarding than words can express,along the way finding distant cousins and other realatives I would not have known about as well as the amazing friends that seem to keep popping up in various circumatances in my life. I cant wait to see who I meet next!

thanks for the photo!

Read part of your profile there

Crystal lake or whatever that lake is there sure is still popular it looks like to me. I've gone by there several times now thru the summer and they were always busy down there

We stopped for ice cream there once but boy are they high

Dolbee? is there anyone in your lines with the name Mary Lou and Larry Dolbee that used to live in Lansing?

I am over here in Vestaburg, dinky town! I call it stick ville!

Again thanks for the photo!

RE: Nielsen/Petersen
Is there a way to find out their dates of birth or death? I have left messages with the director w/o any response.

RE: Nielsen/Petersen
All of the Nielsens in the plot & Petersens close by. (Neils & Maren had 3 daughters and 2 sons).
1. Karen Marie (Nielsen) Petersen (1855-1946)& her husband Jens Petersen (1855-1916)are buried there. They had Peter & and Meta Christine (Petersen) Hansen (1876-1954)& her husband Jens Peter “JP” Hansen (1871-1943), but I think they are buried in South Sidney Cemetery.
2. Johanna (b 1863 – d 1937); she's in Big Rapids
3. Hans Nielsen (1870–1952)& his wife Christena (1880-1968) are buried there. They had two sons: Frank & Alfred
4. John Nielson (1876-1941)He is either there or the south Sidney cemetery & his wife Karen; they had 3 sons: Howard, Chester & Lester (I don't think they are buried there).
5. Meta - but she was in CA in 1937

RE: Nielsen/Petersen
If you happen to get back there could you send me something showing who & where the Petersens & Nielsens are buried?
Niels Nielsen (1825-1912) was my great great grandfather & I can't find his wife; there was mention that her name was Metta, but I am wondering if it's Maren; is she buried next to him?
Hans (1870-1952) & John (1876-1941) are his sons. John's obit says he is buried in the south Sidney cemetery but Find A Grave doesn't have him

Can you let me know if all any or all of the ones you took the other day were close by? I think they may have planned ahead & had many plots together.

Nielsen/Peterson grave photos
Thank you so much for taking these. Do you recall if Peter who died in 1936 was burried near Karen's gravesite? I'm trying to find her son Peter Petersen who died in 1935 (according to her obituary, but that could have been a typo in the paper).

Thanks again Amanda - your photos have helped clear up an issue on our Rouch headstones. I've left a message request for Judy Hardy to swap out the photos for Anna C and Anna Caroline Roush. Your photos were definitively key to getting this puzzel resolved. Thank-you!

Thanks for the photos- I was wondering how you identified this headstone - from the photo I can't really tell and the memorial says "Note: no stone, info from burial record, parents-Andrew and Catherine Shenk Roush" It would be nice to have the current memorial holder to edit this text out if it is indeed incorrect. Thanks very much for your efforts on my Roush ancestors headstone.
