Bio and Links
I am a long time genealogist and volunteer at the Hillsdale Community Library's Mitchell Research Center. I also do a limited amount of research for others.

I was born and raised in Morenci, MI thus have done much research in Lenawee Co. My father was from Tecumseh and mother from Adrian. I have lived in Hillsdale Co. about 35 years.

My late husband, Arnold V. Reister, is the connection to the info I posted on the Zion Cemetery site. His mother was a Case.

John Mills Jr
Hello. The birth and death dates that you have here are wrong. John F. Mills Sr. had a son John F. Mills Jr. The dates you have are fro John Jr. NOT John Sr.

delbert pentlow
Hi Janis. I am going through Zion Cemetery and will be taking pictures of everyone buried there for genweb. I am also adding them to this site. I made a mistake on I think it was Delbert and put the wrong picture. I can't figure out how to remove it to put the right one on. Vasti has her picture of her stone (she shares it with Delbert). Are you related to John Pentelow? It is spelled with an E but that's not unusual for a letter to be dropped back then. He's buried by Vasti and Delbert also. If you can remove the picture please do and I will put the correct one on.

Thank, Chris Witt
