"Let children walk with nature, let them see the beautiful blendings and communions of death and life, their joyous inseparable unity, as taught in woods and meadows, plains and mountains and streams of our blessed star, and they will learn that death is stingless indeed, and as beautiful as life."

You forgot- Harrigan
This is what I have from her death record -- Eva Jane Harrigan Hunter daughter of William Harrigan and Eva Mary Weis, husband of Robert E. Hunter died 7/23/1946 in Toledo, Ohio.

You are missing your Harrigan side of your family. William was a brother to my great grandfather, John Harrigan.
William James Harrigan b. 1-23-1861 Perth Co., Ontario
Son of David Harrigan and Elizabeth Roche.

I can't believe you are back in Michigan- right in the center of family. William and Mary Jane Weiss lived in Bay City when they first came in about 1887 from Canada. His parents came a couple of years later and settled at Irishtown- Isabella County, near Stanton. The rest of the family scattered. Remus and Barryton for John's family: Bay City on Margaret's side; Ed, Jim, and Bill some came north to Traverse City, Buckley, Kaleva and Hannah; Frank to Saginaw.

Who's your cousin?

RE: Crabb memorials
You are welcome.
If you decide you would like the photos in the future just let me know & I'll send them.
My goal after stopping by the cemetery and seeing the old markers was to do my best to preserve them with photos. And hopefully transfer memorials to family regardless of how far removed.
Any other 'relatives' of yours I've made memorials for that maybe you can edit/update?
I really need to return to the cemetery and walk it again.
I did report the broken/fallen markers but do not know if anything was done to them.
I do have a 'transcription' of when the cemetery was 'walked and recorded by hand'.

Crabb memorials
I've transferred 5 Crabb memorials to you.
Would you like me to e-mail the actual photos I took?
You have my permission to use them as long as 'not for profit'.
I do believe the one I took of Gershom & Sarah might be a little better then the one on their memorials.

Crabb burials in Stateline Cemetery
I see you added a picture for one of the Crabb memorials I made.
If any of the Crabb memorials I have made are in your family line please use the edit button & request a transfer.
I am not related to any of the people for whom I made a memorial in Stateline Cemetery and if you can link or add info I'd be glad to transfer those you are related to, even remotely.

RE: Minnie W. Crabb
Ok, I've transferred Minnie's memorial to you.
When I started the State Line Cemetery project I had hoped that relatives of the memorials I'd made would contact me either with more info or requesting a transfer.
And for this cemetery I am not concerned as to the way a person is related.
I agree, being under a Level 3 emergency is a great time to do genealogy or work on cleaning out drawers, cupboards, closets, files, etc.

Minnie W. Crabb
I am not related to Minnie Crabb in any way.
I sort of 'adopted' the small cemetery where she is buried and wanted to perserve as many of the markers as possible.
Would you like me to transfer her memorial to you & then you could do the editing/linking yourself?
If so please let me know.

RE: Wendel/Curtiss
I love the picture! My grandmother was Arthur Kaiser's sister and my Mom is still in contact with Dick & Diane. We lost a lot of the old family pictures when the Hagman Rd. homestead burnt to the ground in 1956 so it's a treat to see the family resemblance to Aunt Dorothy.

RE: Wendel/Curtiss
Hi John! I added a link to Frank on the memorials of his 3 daughters. I also added a link to their mother, Emma, over at Forest Cemetery. May I use your tombstone picture for Frank on his entry in my tree?
