Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am in the process of volunteering at/working with Owen Cemetery, (Thomas Township, Saginaw, MI) to record all of the names of the people buried there and photograph all grave sites.

September 20, 2014
It's become important to me to provide as much info. as possible for anyone looking for family members, so pardon my edits....but I'm hoping they'll help people find the correct family members, or just add info for people who are looking for family connections.

September 20, 2013.
I just discovered this site and am learning a LOT about my family history.
My family's names are: Knepper, Graham, Pringle, McNicol, Bracey and Uptegrove.
Thanks to this site, I found and 'met' my father's family. No easy task, when his mother died in childbirth after having his youngest brother, and his dad left them.
Thanks to all of you who do this! It meant the world to me to 'find' them. Now I'm on a quest to find out more.....and in the process I want to help others...just like several others have helped me.

RE: Charles Cook 1711430015
Janet, Thank you very much for the transfer of the memorials, it was very kind. If your path ever leads down in this direction, and many Michigan ancestors do, please don't hesitate to ask for assistance.

Thanks, Jeff

Janet, Thanks again. Yes, John and Mary are my great-great grandparents, and came to America in 1853 from Rederank, Germany. I receive a note from a woman telling me that I didn't have all the siblings listed in their memorial, so I figured I had best get on it...

RE: Margaret Vane photo req
Hey Janet - I'd be happy to take over responsibility for the memorial. I am not directly related to Gordon via blood, but Margaret Vane (nee Carpenter) is a great Aunt of mine....

RE: Harry Tucker photo req.
Thanks Janet. I was not sure if there was a headstone and I could not find it. I thought I might have been confused.

RE: 35537890 graham
The only way I would know is to look at Michigan records. Her brother Alfred in the St Charles or Hemlock Michigan area owned a farm and I believe that it is possible. Graham Road otherwise M-52 that is by Saginaw Michigan and travels a long way is named after them. There is a picture of her. Unless her grandson David Anderson in Saginaw, MI might know.

Janet, I added the info you sent me. Thank you for sharing that. I'm sorry to hear that little Otto and his mother Martha do not have a headstone, but I appreciate knowing.
