While I am relatively new to Findagrave, I have been a life-long history/genealogy buff. On here almost daily researching my ancestry or adding memorials.
As a child I always felt like I was unimportant and insignificant. When I began to research my ancestry, I came to find out that I had a family history and there were some interesting people in my tree. Genealogy has been a great comfort and value to me and I hope to pass that on in my own family.
Now as a follower of Jesus Christ, I realize that I am a child of the Most High, a daughter of The King. My prayer is that I would help others to understand His great love for us and that I would be a light to someone.

P.S. Anyone has my permission to copy any of the photos I have posted here as long as it is for your personal use. You cannot copy them if it is for profit or promotion; otherwise feel free. After all, isn't sharing what it is all about????

Samuel W. Hunt (1790-1865)
I am sorry, but I am not related to the Hunts in that area as far as I have found in my genealogical research. I do manage his memorial, so if there are any changes or additions to it, I would be more than happy to make them.
I searched a couple of sources for an obituary for him, but did not find one. I found him listed in the 1860 census as living in Caneadea, New York.
So, you may find additional information is available. A great source to use is They have lots of old New York newspapers there. You may have to search a bit, but I have found things there I have never found anywhere else.
Good luck with your endeavors and if I can be of help, don't hesitate to ask.

RE: Thank you!
Thanks, but I took these photos six years ago and didn't do a very good first job of it. I am in the process of redoing this entire cemetery. So eventually the photos will be better with a new camera and inproved knowledge. I hope I've learned something after taking over 63,000 photos of Jackson County cemeteries. Bear with me; I'll get to them. I'm also adding each section they are in.

RE: Milton McColley headstone
Thank you so much for helping us. My husband uploaded pictures of the headstone for Milton and Lillian with the correct date of 2010 instead of 2011 for Milton. Will you notify us when you have deleted the old pictures, please? What a great service!

Dolly Horton Welch Error
The marriage between Dolly and William was not put there by me, but by "Honoring Our Ancestors," or some anonymous actor. I have tried to remove the link, but I am unable. I will delete Dolly and reinstate her. Please let me know if you find anything out about the distant Welches. William (1820-1906) is my 3rd-great-grandfather. I do not know anything beyond his father, William (died in 1848).

Annie Youmans Whittey Cole
I just noticed that you requested a change to my great grandmother Annie Cole at Greenwood Cemetery Vernon, MI. Are you related to Youmans? I read your bio and noticed you have Millers that you are researching. One of the Youmans grand daughter married a John Miller. Anyway, I liked your write up and testimony for our Lord and Saviour. Keep up the good work,

I see you left a message on John Abraham Mensch's memorial. Thank you. I am also a descendant of Abraham's. My mom was a Mensch.

RE: Hunt's of Riverside Cemetery
hey hon, I have an issue that I have to fix. On the post for Sam Hunt. When I originally posted for him, I post a picture of the headstone for Samuel R. Hunt instead of Samuel W. Hunt. I felt that it was odd that they weren't together but I continued anyway. When I found Margery's pillar, Samuel W. Hunt was on an adjacent side and I immediately knew I had made a mistake. I am very sure I took a picture of Samuel's side of the stone, which was perfect because it was in the sun and very legible. However, when I got home, the picture had seemed to have disappeared. I finished the cemetery yesterday but will go back to get the correct picture for this memorial. I feel so regretful for making such an error. I did go and remove the wrong stone on the memorial and I promise I will get the correct picture as soon as I can. Again, I am very sorry for making the mistake.

RE: Welcom to Find a grave!
Thank you for the message and transfer. This is fascinating and I am excited to put my documentation and photos online for others and generations to come to review. Thanks again.
