RE: Just wondering

thanks for responding

I have county listings that show all interred in the cemetery. Course it can always be wrong along with the death certificate and the obituary, you never know

What I suggest is that you call Spencer Township, 14960 Meddler Avenue, Gowen, MI 49326, (616) 985-0035, FAX (616) 984-2207. Office Hours: T 8:30-12:30, 2-5; W 8:30-12; F 1-5, to see if any other Rooksbys are buried there. Might call the cemetery that Arthur is buried in too.

I can give you both the websites for Kent County and Montcalm County cemetery listings. Not necessarily complete but definitely helps, unless you already have those websites

I was there at Trufant and took a look at the requests and saw yours so I went digging on my websites and that is why I was questioning it

When you called Trufant cemetery officials did they say he was buried there or just gave you plot info? It wasn't specified in your message or I missed it

No I have not seen Georgia's grave (that I can remember). Do you know where Sarah died?

Since Sarah died so early it is possible he is buried there. I did a search and did not find Sarah in Michigan Find a Grave so that is why I wondered where she died.

I imagine you have probably done a majority of the searching but hey... :)

Not sure where you are located but we will have snow on the ground soon so lots of photographers won't get into the cemeteries but may have them stored up for that season-still another thing you might know especially since you've been here so long

Just did a search on Sarah's death. Shows her middle name as Elizabeth, died in Kent Co and in Spencer Township..

Just checked the map and I see Trufant is not too far from Spencer Twp, I guess its either Trufant or Spencer Mills. Call both and verify burials.

How dare these people not have stones! J/K! :)

Did I cover all the bases? Let me know what you think and if I can be more help. I don't mind at all. I love mysteries and research.

Interesting turn of events for me since I started searching again.

Just wondering
Smith Rooksby

Working on the Trufant Cemetery and noticed your photo request

Just wondered why you think he is buried there? Where did the plot info come from?

He isn't buried with the wife? Did he remarry?

Trying to help

Thanks for the information re: Rooksby clan. I have found a link with Mary Rooksby in my family tree research and the added information has been wonderful. Always love to see photos of the people or the stones.
