Bio and Links
Bio Photo *** South Attica Cemetery - I have a TON of research on all of the families there (20 years worth of it). I have many projects going on at once, so if I don't have "complete" info posted, feel free to contact me. I'm hoping by winter 2014-2015 to have all of the pertinent info and small biographies entered in.

**My photos: Anything I upload here that is obvious I photographed I don't expect to claim copyright, I'm offering them here for anyone to use for their genealogy, credit is nice but not required (I use a screen name here to be easily identified from the rest). If high resolution photos are needed or alternate views, I'll send them if I have them. I have used a variety of cameras for 20 years, so the quality of my photos vary as well. I do take artsy photos as well as documentary (not sure if I'm allowed to post where I share those here or not, but it's in FB sharing group Angels To Watch Over Us).

Been researching my own family actively for 20 years but got my start as a toddler when my parents and grandparents were doing it. I started to research locally to earn money to pay for the cost of researching my own. In the process I collected quite the library of my own. Now I just look things up if I know I have the info or point in the right direction because I'm now documenting all "threatened" items locally and in my family before they are gone to this tear-it-down attitude, vandalizm or weather takes its toll. I feel that we are the keepers of the past, keepers of history, so it'll be there for generations to come. In 20 years I have seen headstones vanish, collections burn, houses be torn down or remodeled past their original state. I feel I'm too young to say "I remember". Now I take photos and lots of them. This way if it disappears for whatever reason, I can say "I have proof it existed".

Photo for William B Youngs and William D Youngs
Thank you for submitting the 1913 photo for the Youngs family monument. It is a great photo but there is a separate monument for William D Youngs and his son, William B Youngs. Thanks again.

Please correct parental relationship links for Eliza's parents to Chauncy 67269948 and Aseneth. Thank you very much, Jody

Mary E Traver West
Hoping you have an explanation! I found Mary in 1920 census living with daughter Annis and her husband Anderson Sculley in Denver, Colorado. Said she was divorced. Yet this shows she died over 20 years earlier!? Wow. Any ideas? If Martin D West did re-Mary, why would 1920 census list Mary as mother-in-law?

Cynthia Ellsworth

Someone once told me that Cynthia Ellsworth (c1812-aft 1880) married to Hiram B Lattimer (1809-1891) was the daughter of Israel and Prudence (Stevens) Ellsworth.

However, reading your biography of Israel I am questioning the validity of that information. You mention that you have a large collection of information on the family.

Long shot I know - buy would you have Cynthia is there with her real parents?

Thank you in advance for you time and consideration.

Marvin Bolton
Dear Wiregirl12:

What wonderful work you have done on the Find a Grave website at South Attica Cemetery in Lapeer, MI.

I work at a Civil War Site in the City of Fairfax, Virginia. In the ca. 1859 historic house, now known as Historic Blenheim, Union soldiers wrote their names, etc. on the walls of the house. Marvin Bolton fro the 1st Michigan Cavalry, was one such soldier.

Do you have a contact for the family photos of Marvin Bolton and family? We are always looking to connect with descendants.

Thank you for your kind assistance.

RE: Ebenezer Watkins @ Attica
I don't have a family tree for the Watkins family - I'm not related - I referred you to which has free family trees. TY - yes, I've already discovered the 2nd marriage, etc. several months ago which I've already added to find-a-grave and updated. TY so much for the confirmations per the obit on the burial locations.

Beverly Tomhave
Henry B Smith
Thank you for all your work at South Attica cemetery especially! Is this Holly? I would like to know how the birth date of 1788 for Henry B. Smith was found. His grave stone was found in the shed there first on the cemetery premises, then the shed was torn down and it was in a pile..Thank you for finding and putting it together again! Do you know what church in 1874 would have handled this burial? Thanks! Beverly
