Bio and Links
Bio Photo HI, I have been researching my Genealogy since July of 2000. I really enjoy visting Cemeteries and takeing pictures. Headstones are so awesome, they come in all different shape, sizes, Colors, and the engravings express how someone was feeling at the time this person died. I believe you can some what see what kind of a person was by their headstone. And sometime a headstone is all that is left on this earth. I live in Allegan, Michigan

Finehart/Tracy
If the Tracys and Fineharts aren't related - it appears they were neighbors, and when Mr. Tracy died, Mrs. Tracy moved in with Mrs. Finehart??

Jennie Finehart - Greenwood, Orlando
Her grave is not marked.

Cemetery book has her name as Feinhar - which could be a typo.

Funeral record has her name as Finehart.

Lot owner was Mrs. John E Tracy. Buried there are John Edward Tracey, Addie Tracy, and Jennie [Feinhar] Finehart.


Mrs. Finehart was a ten year resident of the Orlando area when she died at her home, 513 E Hillcrest, of a cerebral hemorrhage.

She was a widow.

Informant of record was Jos. J. Gannon of St. Clair, MI

Millard F. Jewell #48003401
I like to read the old newspapers at the Library of Congress website and today, I ran across the wedding announcement for Millard Jewell and Ellen Rolison in the Belding Banner (Belding, MI) of 11/29/1916. I believe this might be the Ella Wilson in the memorial. I am attaching a link. I thought you might like to see the article.

Thank you for photographing and adding the stone for Doyle (Tom). I didn't know Betty, his wife had passed, so that is new information for me. Tom was my first cousin, although we hadn't kept in touch for quite a few years. He was a favorite when growing up.
