|Bio and Links|
I'm a retired Legal Admin in Macomb County bordering St. Clair Co, Michigan. I'm a cemetery walker who enjoys visiting local cemeteries to take headstone photos, I also take additional photos & focus on the older stones & Veteran's markers before they fade to preserve history for future generations. My family lineage names are: Shaw, Irvin, Patton, Orr, Hawkins, Lindsay, Irwin, Stattenfield, Antes, Bartholomew, Lutz, Lucas, Pardon, Ritz . . . |
Hopefully, these postings may help you make a connection. I would be happy to transfer memorial pages to family members. Any of the pictures or other information that I have posted to findagrave.com can be used by anyone for whatever volunteer purpose they would like. You may not use the pictures if they will be used for a make for profit purpose.
I appreciate the opportunity that Find A Grave gives everyone to learn and share. If you want to review or add to what is already shown, or discuss posting please contact me.
Public records are a wide variety of records that are being kept by the government and are open to the public under the freedom of information act. They include marriage records, divorce records, court records, birth records, death records and many more.
In most of the U.S., by law, cemeteries are required to keep records regarding burial or cremations of individuals. Cemetery records will usually contain the name of the deceased, the date of passing and location of burial within the cemetery itself. Cemetery records are also required by the cemeteries themselves, as they need a means to make sure they are not using the same burial plots to bury multiple individuals. Therefore, it is not unlikely that the cemetery records hold an exact index of the grave and in some cases, a map may also be available. In some cases, the cemetery records may hold additional information such as maintenance requirements at the request of the family, landscaping and so forth. It is also not unlikely to have information on the burial itself, the making of the headstone and specific text that was requested for it. The text itself is valuable as it often indicates existence of relatives or information on the deceased itself. Although, on some older records in the early-mid 1800's, I've discovered the only record is "occupied" with no name, but each jurisdiction is unique. Some of the records kept by churches attached to little graveyards may even contain marriage, baptism records/witnesses.

|Hamblin/Keys||RE: Re Centennial|
Wow. No records. You are really doing great then! I will try my best to catch up with you. Looks like I will have to send you another sheet too. I'm doing some good digging over here :)
You are doing great work! 2 steps a head of me always it seems. I was working on setting everyone up and then getting as much info as I can find but you are faster then me it seems. Wish I had more time for this. I love it. The power outage didnt help things either. Very limited internet on my phone. I'm working on them as fast as I can though. I have two requests up for you :)
|ManifestDestiny||John Brennan Photo|
Thanks for the photo ... I've been waiting a while for a kind volunteer to fulfill it for me. If you find yourself wandering through Kenockee Cemetery anytime soon and you see a Brennan marker, I would love it if you could snap a photo for me. I have about 10 more open requests, most at Kenockee for Brennan ancestors. If I still lived in Michigan I could stay very busy with my camera! Thankfully there are generous people such as yourself who are willing to do the leg work for me.
"To T or not to T, that is the question!"
Thank you for your sweet note. The lack of t causes much confusion. I remember when my dad was suddenly taken to the hospital in Port Huron - the days before cell phones - and of course there are two hospitals there - and we ran from the right hospital to the wrong one and back to the right hospital again - no one had him; well, of course "the right" hospital did, but had spelled his name with the t and couldn't find him in the records. And the newspaper spelled his name wrong in his obit!
I think that many Wes"t"brooks who went into business put the t back in because it was easier for the public instead of explaining all the time.
Oh migosh, I make so many mistakes! That's why we need another pair of eyes. Thanks again for writing and all my best, Suzanne

|Hamblin/Keys||Re Lucinda G Bennett|
I'm not sure yet but I think this is a different Lucinda. I believe this one was wife of Nathanael born abt 1801ish.
|Hamblin/Keys||RE: Procter Cemetery in Macomb Co|
I really do hope family will come to claim these! And I have a lot of work ahead of me looking into their backgrounds. Some of the stones I'm having a hard time reading. I see why I was having such a hard time finding information on a few of them. If they died before 1850, or were very young, then they didn't make it in a census to follow them around. I will try my best with the information gathered from the photographs. Thanks again!
Great work!!! Thank you so much! I would had requested more photos (the ones you took) but it would only let me request so many in a week. That's kind of frustrating for me and for you all who take the photos because it sends you on multiple trips! I'm glad you took the time to take more photos for me without the requests posted :)

|Hamblin/Keys||Re Procter photos|
Thank you for all your photos at Procter Cemetery! I was so busy looking up and adding information to the memorials last night that I fell asleep with my iPad in my hand! Haha!
Thank you so much for all your help. It's greatly appreciated!
