Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born at Manistique, Michigan in my Grandma's home. Our family moved around a lot. Ended up graduating in 1964 at Gladwin, Michigan. After graduation I joined the US Navy from 1964 to 1968. Since retiring in 1989, I became a resident of Conway, Arkansas. My greatest interest would be seeing historical sites. There is a good half dozen right here in the "Natural State" of Arkansas, of battle fields and cemeteries, where their remains are laid to rest.

I got into, the first time, Genealogy back in the middle 80's. After my dad passed away in 1987, I decided to get back into this. Which I am glad I did. It is very interesting of all the history one can come across.

So now am working on my family and my wives side of family, Russell, Miller, Squires, Jenkins and Sysak.

RE: 101254884
Do you have Peter's death certificate? If you don't I can email it to you.

Our records show his mother's name was Catherine. That doesn't show up on the death certificate.

RE: 101254884
Yes, they are all listed in my cemetery records with dates as you have given. You are right about our snow - school was called today.

We have a family connection - my ggrandmother's sister Hannah Sophia Hazen married Frederick Olmsted family - son of William and Judith.

RE: Memorial # 101254884
My records do not include photos however I am only 2 miles from the cemetery so that is not a problem. My records also include birth and death dates, parents, wife, and in some cases cause of death.

My death records only show Alanson, Ann Eliza and Oscar Bennett Russel buried at Sac Bay. Were you referring to married females also?

RE: Memorial 20103754
According to records we have for the Garden Peninsula Historical Society, Alanson Bennett King Russel's first wife, Catherine Ellis and he had a son Albert Russel b. 1851 in N.Y. All our records say about him is that he drowned as a young child, south and west of the Village of Garden and his burial place is unknown.

By his 2nd wife Mary Ann Olmsted Avery, widow of Levi R. Avery, a son A. Eugene Russel was born on November 15, 1864 in Wisconsin and died January 31, 1941 at Detroit Lakes, Minn. and is buried there.

A. Eugene was married to Ann Eliza Ferguson Olmsted, the widow of Lemi Olmsted and had no children.

Believe it or not, I only have it as Greene Co, OH but it is adding Greene as the city. I took it out and added it again and it's still there. Must be a bug in the system.

Thompsonville Cemetery, MI
I am so confused that I dare not enter the following data on the memorials.

I show John (1856-1899) the son of Julia M nee Pratt #25121612 and William F Keebaugh #25121614.

Of course, I would like to link his parents to each other, BUT....and I would like to link him to his parents.....BUT.

If they're your kin, would you please investigate more, and do what you believe to be true.

And to make matters worse there's someone else on Julia M's stone. Who was that guy?

Thanks, Margaret

RE: Peter Pfister

If there was a stone there I would have photographed it because I did the whole cemetery. I pulled the Garden Historical Societies list of cemetery records and I don't see her name listed as being in that cemetery. Also did a scan of the on line Delta County Death records and don't see her in there either. Sorry!

I did not find Dwight, he is not on the listing and was not near Dale and Donald.
