Bio and Links
Bio Photo Miriam has been instructing and lecturing since 2005 to various groups in the Inland Northwest. She has been interested in her family history since she was a young girl, living in Southeast Alaska, far from her extended family in Western Michigan. In 1987, she began her genealogy research.

Ten years later, she was successful in reuniting her paternal grandmother--an adoptee--with her biological family. Miriam writes an award-winning genealogy blog, Online Historical Directories and Online Historical Newspapers websites. When not chasing dead people, she crochets, gardens, and bicycles.

If you would like Miriam to make a presentation to your group or would like to see her list of topics, please message her at this profile.

Hi Miriam, Thanks so much for your work at Goodrich Cemetery. Love the photos and find them so helpful. It would be fabulous if you could note dates - rather than state "unknown" especially when they are on the stone as photographed. Sometimes it's hard for us to read the whole date/see the additional words or death info.

Thanks again,

Litz-Aylsworth pt III
I figured it out. She is buried in the same cemetery as her husband Anson, but the cemetery she's listed in is wrong. She's buried in Pioneer cemetery which also went by Eldred/Elridge/Eldridge and Hunts Corner cemetery. I'm going to have Find-a-Grave merge Elridge cemetery (and the 4 people listed in it) into Pioneer.

Now that I think about it, her stone with Anson in Pioneer cemetery, has no year of death inscribed on it. I'm wondering where she's buried. Thoughts?

If you could change the cemetery of burial to; Pioneer, Newstead, Erie Co., NY she'll be in the right place. I just listed her husband Anson in that cemetery and would be happy to upload photo's for both if you put in the photo requests. Thank you!

Jacob (E or L) Ebright 1836 - 1918
Good morning! I noticed you placed the info for Jacob Ebright. I was wondering if you by chance had a photo of his gravestone?

RE: Hannah (Fox) Fredenburg
Hi Miriam, I was happy to. I will be glad to transfer any other memorials you'd like as well, just let me know. It appears I have made a memorial for at least one other Fox family member in Hyslop cemetery, and several other Foxes across Sanilac County.

Checked her death certificate because of a conflict on the stone as to the birth date. It state she was born 9-6-1893? Another problem. and it lists her cause of death as Tuberculosis.

You're very welcome. I go to Forest Lawn every week sometimes several times a week on Monday or Tuesday I should have the photo for you!

Thank you, Miriam. I am researching people in the area and trying to add what I document to Find A Grave but am not a relative.
