All rights are reserved on the pictures I submit. Personal non-commercial use is granted.

I'm currently working on my direct ancestors, with a few minor diversions. Much of my initial work is based on my father's genealogical database, built over several decades, mostly prior to 2000, but with numerous updates after as well (it covers well over 12,000 individuals!). I doubt I will get very far through it, but one has to start somewhere!

If you find errors/omissions in the records I've added or manage, please do let me know. If you would like to manage some of these, I am open to a discussion, but I'm not inclined to transfer over my ancestor's memorials. If I am unable to continue working on Find A Grave for some reason then of course I will transfer memorials as appropriate.

Thanks for your interest!

Thomas Nicolson
I went to the Marlette City Cemetery yesterday and got pictures for Thomas D. Nicolson 1859-1905 & Catherine Nicolson 1866-1929 buried together. Plus Isabelle Nicolson 1893-1921. When you get them in the correct cemetery I will add the photos to the memorials.

Thomas Nicolson
I just talked to the city clerk in Marlette and they have a record for a Thomas Nicolson in a plot owned by James Nicolson in the Marlette Cemetery. He is with Isabelle & Catherine but there is no burial dates on them. The only other thing I can do is I can go to the cemetery and find there graves.

RE: Michael Barrett, St Thomas Cemetery
Thanks so much for the additional detailed information in regards to location! This will make it much easier for me when I finally am able to make it to Massachusetts (I'm in NY) and visit the cemeteries there.

RE: Henry Kelly, St. Thomas cemetery
Thanks for providing the link. I do see the stone vaguely in the Google maps image and that it has Kelly and Riddle (his wife's maiden name) on it, but I wonder if you could get a picture of it, too. If you need, I can put in another photo request.

Joseph McCracken
Hi Dave,

I believe I have found Joseph's parents and a brother, John, all in the same family plot. His father was William and his mother Elizabeth. If you make memorials for them and request photos, I will claim and add the photos.

There are a number of other McCracken graves in this cemetery. I can't do any more this week, but I will be happy to provide you with more information after the 19th of July.

RE: Mary Jane Taylor Crawford
Many thanks for your rapid reply.

The notes I took four years ago in the Middle East are in a box at the back of a cupboard. Some day, I'll get them out and give you a precise description of where the graveyard is, as it took me a couple of days to locate it, and I'd probably still be searching, except that a man who worked at my hotel knew someone who pointed me in the right direction. Even after I had found it, it was locked, so I had to go to the nearby Moslem cemetery and they had to go and fetch the man with the key.

In the meantime, this may give you some idea of where it is:

In the South-East part of the city, there is a small chapel built into the city walls, which is supposed to be the gate where St. Paul was lowered out of the window and escaped to Jerusalem. Just opposite this, there is a complicated roundabout. If you can manage to find the road which leads South from this tangle, follow that, and the Protestant (capital "P", if you please) Cemetery is on the West (right) side of that road, perhaps half a mile down it.

I'll try to give you a more cogent description of this, some day!
