Thank you!
MSgt Lindsay -

I want to thank you so very much for your service to our country, and for your ongoing dedication to the people of this country. There are some who join the military, put in their time, and then move on. Then there are those who commit their lives to serving their country and it's peoples. It is very apparent that you love to serve and protect the people of this country, whether as active military, or as retired military performing such a service as this is. On this Memorial Day, my thanks come to you as they do to you and others like you, who dedicate their lives to such service. And my thanks as well to those have been lost in this commitment, as well as those who continue to pledge their lives to protecting us, the people of this great nation.

Many, many thanks.

Thank You !
Thank you so much for the photos. I really appreciate it. I maintain the records for Rosehill Cemetery and work full time so it is difficult to get out and take pictures.
Thank you again

I have a request for the grave of Joseph Perz born 1877, died about 1929-1931. He is probably buried in the St Clair County Port Huron Area, He would be in buried in a catholic cemetery.

He was married to Josephine Zawislak, In Chicago in 1904.
They had the following children Frank, John, Mary, Walter, Amelia, Lillian.

Joesephine Perz Gzik(1888-1946) is buried in Mount Hope Cemetery Port Huron St. Clair County
Michigan, USA with her 2nd husband Blazey Gzik (1887-1955). Her son Frank R. Perz (1906-1960) is also buried there. Can you tell me if they are all together in a family plot?

Joseph and Josephine Perz' son, John J Perz (1908 -1983) is buried at Lakeport Cemetery Burtchville Township St. Clair County Michigan, USA
Margaret and Robert Perz are also buried there. You have the memorial for Robert, a marine.
Can you tell me if these three at Lakeport and related? Buried together in a family plot?

Please look for the father, Joseph Perz in Mount Hope, or in Lakeport or any other catholic cemetery in the area.
Thank you,
"lost souls"

Lenise (Cole) Dozier
Hello, I am searching for my grandfather's sister her name was Luella COLE. She and my grandfather were orphaned and my grandfather grew up in Royal Oak Michigan at (then) Judson Center for Boys at 13 mile and Greenfield Road, he was 12 at the time he was placed there. I have absolutely NO record of HIS parents and the only information I have is that his sister's name was Luella. Can anyone help me here? His name was Perry Fredrick Cole. Thank you!

Mick Denis ( Surline Family)
Surline Family
I am from Canada and I have known some what of my mothers family (Surline)the earliest know member too me, is John Surline who served on USS Oneida during the war of 1812 he is my Great Great Grand Father, his son my Great Grandfather was William Henry Surline who served in the US army during the Civil war on the Union side he had six sons, three of which rode up to Canada and settled in what is now Saskatchewan,near a place called Netherhill near Saskatoon. The rest they say is History, if not for you I don't think I would have ever found his grave my next quest will be to find John Surline's Grave I do think it is somewhere near Sackets Harbour in N.Y.state. Funny thing this being the 200 hundredth anniversary of the War of 1812-14 that this comes to light as I served 30 years Royal Navy ret. CPO Engineer
Thanks Sam from a sailor to a leather neck

Thanks for the transfer!
Thanks for the transfer of my Mother's memorial page.

Attention Folks! This man participates in the true spirit of Find A Grave. Along with creating many memorial pages, he is a hard working volunteer photo taker. At the date of this post, (5-7-2013) he has taken 405 volunteer photos. He really does his part to make this site work.

Plus, he's a retired veteran and according to my Mother's standards, he is to be praised for this too.

Thanks again for everything.

Thank you for the photos and.....
Hi Sam,
Thank you so very much for the photos of James E and Sarah Hager Anderson! That was quick and I appreciate it very much. Also, the info you've sent me about Ed and Ethel and Ethel's son from what must have been a first marriage has changed my Ancestry record. My Mom always told me she Ed & Ethel didn't have any children so the fact that she did was a surprise to me. Thank you! Now I'm off to correct my Ancestry records...

Hi, I was wondering if you could add Peter MacDonald buried in Caswell Cemetery Kimball. to his dad Robert MacDonald buried in Rattle Run Cemetery Rattle Run Mich.Roberts memorial number is 62847761.Also Peter was born in June in Canada and died 17 April 1934.There is a marker tucked up against Robert that says Flora and Peter had a daughter named Flora. I have been there to Caswell as well as Rattle Run but have not been able to get over to courthouse records to verfiy Flora as Roberts granddaughter.I hope to get up from Lansing this summer.

Hi Sam,

I believe this photo is of a son born to my 3rd great grandfather/mother. Is it possible the mother's name on this stone is Margaret? If so, this was a grave that was moved from an old cemetery Pinegrove to Lakeside in 1886. I do not know the birth or death date of this child.

Also, I am wondering if John and Margaret are buried there? John died apprx. 1906.

Thank you

I want to say thank you
I was browsing things online to actually look up things my ex was in and my sons name popped up. I clicked on it wondering what it was and started crying because I think its a wonderful thing you have set up here. Also that a complete stranger walks around taking pictures of graves of people you have no idea who they are. Its kinda sweet. I am hoping this year to finally add his picture on it where the circle lies. The red star that sits on it is from when my daughter grabbed it out the car and said Devin needs present to. It still there till this day. Through snow and wind it sits. I want to thank you for this.

In regards to: Devin Timothy Glentz
Yours Truely,
Cassandra Ramirez
