Howdy Cuz!
Hi Douglas.

Haven't communicated with you in a while but was tinkering around on the site and saw your name pop up!

Thanks for keeping up the memorial for my dad. Pretty cool stone, eh? That is a photo of him fishing on Winn Lake in Quetico Park, Ontario. Captures his life perfectly.

I visited Alexander Preston Sutton's grave a couple years ago as we were coming back from Texas. It was amazing to find his stone and get a few photos.

I'll stay in touch as I consider any updates etc in the future on the family.

Take care.

Edwards family, Kellogg, Iowa
Came across your Andrew Edwards Family memorials..
Are you related to the Edwards family of Kellogg, Iowa?
I grew up in Kellogg and knew some of them well.
Also, I have a son who attended Wayne State.
You mentioned Webster City. My brother, Jim Marsh was coach & Ad at South Hamilton. They named the gym after him.
Curious, Kathy

Photos of the Reeves & Haydens
I wanted to drop you a note and tell you how much i appreciate the photos you put up on findagrave of the Hayden & Reeves family. I an new to this branch of the family. My late mother did genealogy for 35+ years for my Dad's family and now that she is gone-I'm working on her side of the family. I see the Haydens are from your Step-dad. What a blessing you are to do that for him. Very Special.
