Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been researching my family tree since 1981 when I discovered my 2x great-grandfather in England and linked him to Michigan. The Find A Grave site has been extremely helpful on many occasions not only for my research but for those times when I've been helping my friends. I hope to give back by adopting my ancestors on the site and by working in my area to help document nearby cemeteries.

I retired in 2010 following a 39-year career in both the Navy and the federal goverment and have more time to devote to my passion - genealogy.

Daniel Herrick
Steve, do you have any information about the Herrick family, who are somehow related to the Pamments of the Williamston, or Wheatfield Twp., MI area?

A Daniel Herrick gave the information about the death of Eliza (Foote) Warner, and boy, did he goof that up! He told the court clerk that Eliza's mother's name was Eliza Warner, and that Eliza's father's name was Charles Warner, when, instead, her husband's name was Charles Warner. I would like to figure out how old Daniel was when he gave out that erroneous information. See #65678997 for Eliza (Foote) Warner and click on the Michigan Death Certificate. Eliza was living with her son, Orestes "O.B." "Kern" Warner when she died ... and that leads me to Emma (Pamment) Warner, O.B.'s wife, of your Pamment line.

I have transferred the memorial to you, so you may add what you like. I am not related to anyone in Alchin Farm. I just decided to photograph the cemetery a couple summers ago. None of my family is in Michigan, so I benefit from other folks work and like to "pay back" by photographing cemeteries close to me.

Happy Hunting,

Laura Kusler

Thanks for your note about the spelling. I looked at all the Monk/s in that cemetery and when the photo document 'no s' I changed it.

If this helps, one of the things I've learned to do when searching for surnames on Find A Grave is to use less than all the letters in the way I think it should be spelled. That way I can capture those kinds of variants.

Pamments in Alchin
Hi Steve,
I photographed Alchin a couple years ago, but am not related to anyone there, so you are welcome to take care of your ancestors. I have transferred them to you.

Welcome to Findagrave
Steve, thanks for your message about Emma Lucinda (Pamment) Warner. She married my great-uncle Orestes Bronson Warner. My dad, Russell Lewis Warner, wrote that O.B. and Emma had a hard time financially because Emma's brother was always sueing them for cattle trespass. I would like to know more about that family (O.B. and Emma and children) and especially their history. We have at least one elderly descendant still alive, Eileen Dunn in MI, plus her neices in Washtenaw Co., MI. The neices have photos of O.B. and Emma, but you know how that goes... I'll send you my e-mail address.

RE: William Warren
Hi Steve,
The William Warren whose memorial you indicated on your message is buried in the Warren Cemetery in Pope County.
The location of this cemetery is "Township 11 South Range 5 Section 29 N37* 32.201' W088* 40.760" "This small cemetery is on the edge of a woods" --This location information comes from "Pope County, Illinois Cemeteries Vol 4 compiled by Carol Crisp, 2011.
I believe that all of the marked graves in this cemetery have been posted on Find a Grave, but there are many fieldstone graves without names as Carol states in her book. I have family buried there, but I have never personally visited the cemetery.
I hope this answers your question. If I can be of further help, please contact me.
