Thanks Judy for checking on Charles Purchase's info. That helps a lot to confirm that I have the right person. You can transfer him to me if you'd like. I can add a bit more info and help link him to other family members.
Hi, I was just wondering where the info came from on Charles Purchase #113324438. I do not have Clara as his wife or that he came from Scotland. I only have his wife as Elizabeth/Betsey and that he was from Livingston County, NY. Is it from cemetery records? I would like to add the info to my records and source it. Thanks.

I was wondering how you found out the information about Elias Cunningham serving in the War of 1812. He is my 3x great grandfather and he and his wife Theoda are my end of the line road block. In fact, my great grandmother gave my dad a copy of her family tree and even she wasn't able to get info past her grandparents.

Thought you might be interested in this obit published 1/26/1858 in the Local News & Advertiser:
DEATH OF GEN. VAN FOSSEN
-- The telegraph announces the death of this gentleman at his house in Ypsilanti. Gen. Van Fossen was one of the earliest settlers in this State, and for many years occupied a prominent position among leading men and Statesmen. As long ago as 1840 he was Commissioner of Internal Improvements and we believe has several times occupied a seat in the State Legislature. He has a mind well stored with intelligence, relating to both national and State politics. His death will be regretted by a large circle of friends and acquaintances throughout the State. It was but a few days ago that we met him in this city in his usual health which has been feeble for several years past. --- Detroit Advertiser
I just discovered James' memorial on F-A-G. he is my Great-Great-Great-Great grandfather. I didn't know he was in the War of 1812. Thanks for posting that on his memorial. Are you related too?

We carefully pulled back the bushes and photographed all of the markers that were inside, including Horace's headstone. If the photo wasn't there when you looked, please visit his memorial again. I just checked and the photo has uploaded. It reads:
Feb. 7 1850
Aged 38 yrs
7 mo 24 ds

MOSES PORTER's Find A Grave #38842562 headstone has fallen over. Can you have either the Metamora Cemetery or the DAR repair it to upright position. It shouldn't take much to fix it as it is not broken. He is a SAR Veteran. Also, can the DAR's get a SAR plaque for this Revolutionary War Veteran ??? I've seen them in Macomb County where I live.

You are welcome Judy - I also took a photo the other day of John Cooper Annin (1812 Vet) in Metamora Cemetery. You might want to request that the Metamora cemetery preserve his metal marker flag holder in cement or mounted . . .

I'm so thrilled to hear from you and to learn more about the mysterious War of 1812 veteran. They have really cleaned up that cemetery since that photo was taken. I've driven by and was so happy to see that. You should contact the person who manages his memorial so you can add his details in there. How wonderful he lived a long life!

You are very welcome!
