Headstone hunting
Sorry no headstone was there for the Coykendalls, so I entered that info as a flower so I never ask again. Thanks for hunting for them.

I have changed to WOODS because of what is written on her husbands marker. It reads WOODS, even thro her and his death certificate reads WOOD.
If there is a marker, I would think it would be near Rollin M Woods marker.
So it could be either WOODS or WOOD.
Thank you for your comment on transferring of memorials.
I guess ,I would rather be with friends or family than some unknown stranger because of rules.
Thank you

RE: Infant Gerkey baby
the only information I have on the baby is he died 8-29-1870 in Ionia MI. He was the son of George C. Gerkey and Hannah Snyder. George and Hannah are buried Fuller Family Cemetery in MI.

George C. Gerkey was the son of Henry Gerkey and Susanna Clark. The Gerkey's came from Pennsylvania about 1837 to Ohio and from there the children moved around - some to Michigan and some to Missouri. Henry's father was George Gerkey and his mother was Rachel Martin. George was born in Germany and Rachel was born in PA.

Infant Gerkey baby
Thank you so much for trying to locate the baby. I thought it would be hard to read especially since it's been so long ago - thank you for looking.

I was going by cemetery records. Some where along the line while researching information on my own family I ran across the names, and decided to post the information.

Email me at

In you email, tell me the surnames, you are trying to research.

Hi, John :) I am not related to this family. I was in the cemetery to visit family graves and took pictures of others to add to Find A Grave. Thanks and take care. Kathy
