Bio and Links
Primary interest in following families: Iles, Lapp, McClish, McGarvey, and Wright.

Brick wall: great grandfather - CHARLES WRIGHT, b. abt 1840, believe in Schoharie Co, NY. He died after 1886. He married Mary Ann Austin on 08 Sep 1876 in Paradise, Kingsley Station, Grand Traverse, MI. She was born abt 1837 in Montréal, Quebec, Canada and died 30 Aug 1912 in Kalkaska, MI (wife of Joel Cross, 4th husband). Charles and Mary divorced in 1886. I do not know when/where he died. The family story is that Charles drowned when his son was young, so I'd estimate sometime before 1900.

Charles lived in Paradise, Grand Traverse, MI, in 1876; and Fife Lake Township, Grand Traverse, MI, in 1880. Charles' son (Clarence), told his son that Charles was born in N. Ireland, but I’m skeptical of that claim. A fellow researcher believes Charles may be the same in Federal census for 1870: Green, Mecosta, MI (living with his brother James), and 1840-1860: Owego, Tioga, NY. If so, Charles’ father was John Wright.

If you would like a transfer, please do so from the particular memorial using the "EDIT" tab and then select "Suggest any other correction or addition".

Please know that although I don't always send a "thank you", I greatly appreciate all suggested edits.

RE: L.C. Failor
My information came from the Lakeview cemetery book which I purchased from the Coldwater Library. I have found other mistakes so I don't take it to be 100% accurate, but it's a good place to start.
Thank you for your kind words.

RE: Tripp - Riverside photos
I cut it back just far enough to see the stone better, that was some tough wood. I'm fighting Heart failure & need all the exercise I can get. Three months ago I could hardly walk so i'm happy that I can help again.
I posted all the Tripp's in that lot except Donald, didn't see a stone for him.

RE: Carl U Tobe, # 44425773
Thank you - that would be wonderful as I am working with immediate family on their family history and their family is extremely vast, a lot of children are involved and a lot of future edits need to be made to all of them connecting their children.

Noah's #114597963 & #114367776
Hello R. Wright,

Noticed you sent some edits for Florence and PFC Earl Noah, was wondering if you were family or related to them? If you are please let me know as I would transfer their memorials to you. As my bio states, I believe family should be with family.

Kindest regards,

Rob (YankeeGraver)
