Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a native of Boyne City, Michigan who currently resides just north of Petoskey, Michigan. I have actively researched my own family and its collateral lines for more than 30 years. In addition, I have also conducted paid research for those with ties to both Charlevoix and Emmet Counties. My involvement in both the Charlevoix County Genealogical Society and the Charlevoix County History Preservation Society has resulted in my maintaining a very large database of local history and genealogy- focusing on the early events and families of Charlevoix County.

Over the years I have relied heavily on sites such as Find-A-Grave to locate the final resting places of ancestors and others who have lived and died in more distant cities, states and countries. I can never adequately thank all of those dedicated volunteers who have logged in the countless thousands of names and tombstone images that they have access to within the regions that they live and research in. If each of us would make an effort to devote just a little time to this effort each year, what a remarkable resource this would be for both historians and genealogists.

My meager attempts at creating and maintaining profiles/memorials have been limited to my own relatives, ancestors and collateral line connections. I hope that the information that I have researched and provided will prove helpful to others with an interest in these same individuals and surnames. If you find that you have an ancestral connection to any of the folks whose memorial pages I maintain, please don't hesitate to get in touch. I am always happy to share and exchange information with other family members.

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
Recently I have also begun to add a few "non-family" memorial pages for unrelated individuals. After many years of researching here in Michigan's Charlevoix and Emmet Counties, I have gleaned a great many obituaries and other items, which I have relied on for Genealogical Society newsletters and for use in local history articles and publications. Rather than have them gathering dust in my files, I have started to scan and add them here as time permits. While I will NOT transfer any Find-A-Grave memorials with a family connection, I would be happy to transfer these "non-family" memorials- IF the requester has a family connection and is interested in updating, linking and adding to the original memorial page.

Maple Hill Cemetery Obituary Project
Elmira, Antrim County, Michigan

Many thanks for all of the kind words. My ancestors were early settlers within this community, so the individuals buried there were names that I grew up hearing about. While in most cases I have no further details than what I have already posted, I am happy that my obituary postings have assisted so many of you in locating family members and family connections.

Jacob Lemons
To Whom It May Concern:
I was researching the surname of Lemons and came across the bio of Jacob and his son, what a wonderful bio to read and share for all. Just wanted to thank the one who wanted to share the bit of information on their family. God Bless you for doing so, love the history bits and pieces. Such a great job.
Another researcher,
Sincerely,
Toby

RE: Ransom Family- Ann Arbor, Michigan
Hi again Patrick - I'll transfer all 5 of the Ransom family members in Forest Hill to you. If the snow EVER melts I'll visit them to get photos of the headstones for you. I see you live in Petoskey so you are probably just as buried in snow as we are in Ann Arbor. :)

RE: Ransom Family- Ann Arbor, Michigan
Hi Patrick - No, I am not related to the Ransom family in any way. If YOU are, would you like me to transfer their memorials to you? Also, just fyi, I added Edward Ransom's obit text to his memorial today.
