Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Clare County, Michigan. I have been blessed with good health and abundant energy, so I spend my spring, summer and fall months out in the cemeteries photographing headstones. However, I have been cursed with the desire to hibernate when the snow begins to fly, so I spend the winter months researching and completing the memorials I have created during the fair weather months. If I have created a memorial for one of your family members, I will be more than happy to transfer management to you as long as you promise to give it the tender loving care it deserves.
Feel free to use any of the photo images I have uploaded. No credit is necessary. If I have created a duplicate or made an error on a memorial page, please let me know. I will promptly correct the situation. If you have any information (bios, obits, etc....) that can be added to any of the pages I've created, please send it through the edit button at the top of the page. It makes life so much easier for everyone involved!

Paternal Lineage: surname Williams (Holmes, Crawford & Wyandot Counties in Ohio and Mecosta County, Michigan); surname Troop (Calhoun & Oceana Counties in Michigan)

Maternal Lineage: surname Holland (Illinois, Arkansas & Kansas); surname Coffey (Illinois, Arkansas & Kansas)

Hi Cathy, A few years back I believe you posted the obits on my nephews memorials. For whatever reason, they have since disappeared. I have searched everywhere for them and I can not find them. I hope you can understand when I say I do-not want to bother my sister for these. So, my question is- if it was you and if you still have them can you send them to me through the edit tab or to my email address? You will see on my profile in my virtual cemeteries where my nephews are. If you can not help with this I understand completely. Thank You- Tammy

Dawnsons in Hendrickson Cemetery
This is super low priority, but we were fulfilling a few photo requests in Hendrickson Cemetery and noticed you made memorials for Thomas and Arrilla Dawson in 2014. There were already memorials made in 2012 by someone else. We posted our pix to the 2012 versions. I'm not sure what the going deal is with duplicates in this system, but you might consider a deletion or merging or ?? if possible. No big deal at all. Thanks for the time and effort you've spent to make this system better.

William A. Maynard
Was looking at the grave for William A. Maynard in the Sanford Cemetery, this man was a Doctor, but his Find A Grave heading does not reflect that, and neither does his stone. Not sure why this is. I know not much can be done about the stone, but at lease the heading on his page could be changed to reflect Dr.

Mrs. Earl Williams
Cathy, I have an obit for Mrs. Earl Williams dated Dec. 26, 1935. In trying to find her first name we found the site on Find A Grave giving her name as Maud Ethel (Troop) Williams. We also have a copy of the death record for Margarett Williams who died Dec. 24, 1935, married to Earl Williams. Fathers name looks like ? Trout. My question is if her name is Margarett Williams on her death record where did the Maud Ethel Williams come from on Find A Grave? Could you please give me some idea of why the two first names are different? Any information will be helpful and greatly appreciated. Janet

Lulu B. CUMMINS #94693949
Lulu B. CUMMINS', nee REED, monument has the year of birth as 1891, however her death certificate gives the year as 1890. So far I have not been able to verify the correct date. Also she is the second wife of Albert B. CUMMINS

Albert B. CUMMINS #94693938
Although his monument gives the year of his birth as 1879 his death certificate has the year 1878. I have not been able to verify which date is correct. His first wife was Nettie M. GRANT, but have found no further information about her after their marriage.

Eliakim Jewell
Memorial #: 126230471 is my Great Great Grandfather. He was first married to Lovina Smith and they had 7 children. The then married Mary Elizabeth Drake and went on to have an additional 9 children. I wonder if you could transfer management of Eliakim and Mary Elizabeth (Find A Grave memorial #: 126230469) to me (Find A Grave ID #:
47454452) so that I can link him to his first wife and deceased children.
