Anna Marie Bonefeld
Hi Shannon,

There is a person that has exposed the dates on Anna Bonefeld's stone and would like to post it, but can't because there are already 5 photos attached. I would rather not remove the photos of Anna and her family I posted to make room. I am wondering if you could remove your photo of her "MOTHER" stone so it could be replaced with one that has the dates.

Here is the link to her memorial:

RE: George Page
Hi Shannon!

I, too, am happy to solve some of the mystery. My next step is finding out who runs the cemetery. In my previous conversation with them they claim to have no record of my ggreandfather since their records were destroyed in a fire. I suspect that the best I can do is find out how to get a cenotaph placed for him in the spot I think he is buried since it appears to be a family plot.

Thanks again for your past efforts. The kindness of strangers is what still gives me hope that our country won't implode!

George Page
Hi Shannon,

Quite some time ago you were so kind in helping me to try to locate my g-grandfather. At that time we had no luck. You found other Page family members in the Naubinway, MI cemetery but no George and no death record.

Recently I did find his obit and can confirm that he indeed is buried in Naubinway but with no headstone. :( The cemetery records have long since burned so had it not been for the obituary listing his location of internment I would not have found him. At least now I can begin on the quest for a headstone.

Thank you, again, for your past efforts in helping me to solve the mystery.

Wright Child, small stone
Man oh man but time does fly by. It seems that not too long ago; I was welcoming you to FindAGrave, now look at all of the photos you have put up. I just wanted you to know and thank you for Dorothy's stone that you added in 2011. I recently was able to find more about who she was. Dorothy P Wright was Alice Wright's grand- daughter. She passed away from scarlet fever and meningitis in September of 1921. Not sure why her parents John Edward and Parmelia aren't buried in the same place though. Thanks again, Edna

RE: Napoleon Boudreau
Good work Shannon, thanks. Is there anyway I could see your survey results for the Old Garden Cemetery? Does it include photos?

I am from Garden Michigan and grew up there but live in Hawaii now. I get back to Garden every three years for the Boudreau Family reunion - next one is in July 2016.

Let me know if you receive this - hopefully by return email.

Richard Boudreau, son of Roland Boudreau and Eva Greene from Fayette. My Grandfather was Napoleon Boudreau Jr.

PS - my email is I have a brother who lives near Garden Corners -Robert Boudreau.

RE: Jerow Gravestone
A correction message would be great. IO have found numerous spellings for the Jerow family. In more than one it is spelled Jerau and Geroux such as on Elizabeth's obituary. Thanks for noticing! :-)

I am at drawing at straws now. By any chance when you took the photo of Peter Pfister's headstone, was there a maker next to him for his wife (Emma (Matehke/Matsky) Pfister? Thank you in advance.

Lily Donnelly
Lily would be my Great-grandmother and in the future it is my desire to visit this cemetary. I believe that Silas Clark is her father (my great great grandfather). Do you know anything about how they died or where she (they)would be located in this cemetary? Lily's husband is Edward Donnelly and he is buried in Cass City and he did not have a grave marker :( I did purchase one for him last year :) I feel this is important for other family members trying to find them also. I also do other have family that live in the U.P. I do not. Any information when they were born, when they died, where they lived, what they deid from, anything you can provide to me, I would appreciate. Thanks!

RE: Ferdinand Robitallie
I would love to read the printing, and look forward to seeing it.
Thank you for the phone number too.
I would really like to be in touch with the historical society. I am looking for the other side of the family, Joseph Truckey and his wife Mary. I did find a son of theirs buried in Old Cooks Cemetery. Joseph and Mary have so far been really difficult to nail down as to where or when they came to the Penninsula.
Thank you Shannon for the help.

RE: Ferdinand Robitallie
Thank You Shannon:
Really appreaciate the effort.
Ferdinand Roberts (Robitaille)
He and his wife are buried in the cemetery, her name is Adelaide.
Many other members of that family are there also.
Are the many cemeteries on the Michigan Penninsula in close proximity to each other?
Maybe one day we can locate where his grave is, and mark it.

RE: Kausbaugh at Nahma
Thank you Sharon!

The original spelling of the surname was Kusbach (in Bohemia), but I have 26 [sic] variations of the spelling. Each child used a different spelling at various times.

Frank used Kousbaugh and Kausbaugh. I have letters where he signed his name both ways. I know the headstone was recorded as Kausbaugh, but his death record was recorded as Kousbaugh.

Martin used Kousbaugh (but he is buried in Gardens of Rest in Wells Township).

The father James Kousbaugh was actually Vaclav (Czech) or Wenzl (German) Kusbach, but his children referred to him as James Kousbaugh. When he signs various documents, it is always as Kusbach or Kusbaugh. I have six variations of his given name along with 26 variations of his last name.

The long-and-short of it, record the name how it is found on the headstone, which may or may not be the way it was recorded on the death record! I will then post the death records and other information I have for the family in Nahma.

Do you live in Nahma?

Thanks, Tom

Deloria headstone
I am currently documenting the Deslauriers/Delioria genealogy and noticed that you had quite a number of headstones for this family. Would it be possible for me to use these photo on my web site. I have poste one temporarily to show what it wll look like :
You list a number of people on that one stone but I do not see any names on it, is there a document that shows who has beenburied there.
Also, any information you are willing to share on the Deloria family is welcome.
