RE: Harriett Shaw
You are welcome. When I go back to Woodmere, I will photo David Ripley Shaw & James Truman Shaw. We did find both, but need to dig them out.

RE: Charles Lee

Thanks. I have removed my duplicate memorial for Charlie. Plus I have added his obit to the remaining one.
Bev & I were at the Hough Cemetery on Saturday the 20th for the interment. Shirley, his daughters, several grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren were there as well. We went with them for lunch at the White Horse Inn,(very nice since the renovation). Hope all is well with you and yours.

I really admire what you have done in pursuing the find a grave memorials. Great work.

RE: Charles Lee

I did not realize you had already created a memorial for my brother. If you would just add the photo and family links I have shown on his (i.e., parents and daughter)to your memorial, I will take the one I created down.

RE: Oscar & Clarinda Black
Not related. I was fulfilling photo requests and also taking other numerous headstones while walking in the area and enjoying the scenery of the day. Glad to add the headstones.

RE: Irena Pool
See if this information I have on file for Irena's husband William H. POOL (1808-1890) helps. Aything in these brackets"[]" was added by me:

History of Macomb County, Michigan. Chicago: M. A. Leeson & Company, 1882. Pg. 758:
WILLIAM H. POOL, born in Ashlield, Mass., January 0, 1808. He. with his wife, Irena Smith Pool, born in Williamstown, N.

RE: James Woodburn Paton
You misunderstood what I was writing. The current memorial says Christine is his mother. I was suggesting that you remove that note as Elizabeth is his mother - not Christina.

James Woodburn Paton

Some information on James Woodburn Paton, #82418289. Christina Woodburn was David Paton's first wife. She died in Scotland in 1849 after bearing seven children. David married her sister Elizabeth and they moved to America in 1852. Elizabeth bore another thirteen children, not including several sets of stillborn twins and James was the seventeenth of David's twenty children, Elizabeth's tenth child born in 1863. You may wish to change the description on James findagrave memorial which shows Christine as his mother. Thanks, Mike Corray #48079886

It's good to see some one else who has tried to document individuals who are buried at the "Waddill" cemetery! I'm sure you know its quite the mess! It gets worse every year. John & my ancestor Joseph Conley at one time held joint ownership of this cemetery! I've tried to preserve his headstone!

RE: Followup - Oscar Carpenter's wife
Hi, Just wondering if you were able to confirm Oscar's wife's maiden name? Still haven't chatted with my cousin. Just been to busy on my end...and they are super busy on their end.

re: Francis Hill
Great. Thank you for the info. I really appreciated all the information on Sarah Coopers page too. I had some of it, but I didn't have her death record with her parents names. Are you a relative?

Added by MeganW on Feb 06, 2015 8:03 AM

Francis Hill
Can you help me with Francis Hill Find A Grave Memorial# 38664085. He is my GGGGF. My grandmother and my mother always called him John Francis Hill. I see you have his name listed as John Henry. All the other information is the same, Dates, wife, children. I looked back at my documentation and don't actually have anything official with John Francis. Can you share with me where you found his middle name to be Henry? Thank you. Megan

RE: Followup - Oscar Carpenter's wife
I hope that's her maiden name....but as I guarantee. I couldn't find her on Ancestry unless the maiden name is spelled differently. Take care.

Added by klassikat on Dec 01, 2014 9:18 AM

RE: Followup - Oscar Carpenter's wife
Hi, I haven't been able to contact my cousins yet. But I did a little poking around on the Mormon genealogy site and there is an Irene Sevener that is associated with Oscar S. Carpenter I can't guarantee that is her maiden name...just passing it on.

Also associated with Oscar on that site are:
Martin J Carpenter, Ralph Louis Carpenter, Isaac S Porritt, Frank L Salasky and Louis J Rostone.

I think the Porritt is a half brother or related to a half brother. Not my direct family so not that familiar with relationships. If I can make contact with my cousins and they can confirm or tell me her maiden name, again, I'll let you know.

Take care and Happy Holidays!!

RE: James Miller @ Meade Cemetery
YES - James A. Miller is flat stone on the ground 4th from left. Benjamin is the tall standing headstone in the middle. Simon P. is the tall stone on the far left. Yes, Joseph & Almira are on the far right.

RE: James Miller @ Meade Cemetery
James is buried betw. Rachel (his wife) and Benjamin Miller (a son).

Added by Marguerite on Oct 09, 2014 8:01 AM

RE: James Miller @ Meade Cemetery
Hi Sherry - I labeled the plot photo with each name in Sec. B of the row of Miller's. James Miller is buried betw. Benjamin Miller & Rachel Miller. I've contacted the profile owner to update some dates & links. She added the plot nos. so you would know which of the Miller's are buried in this family unit. Let me know if you have any questions since there are no dates legible any longer on his old headstone. It was a good day as discovered some other headstones to record.
