Bio and Links
Bio Photo Most of my submissions are people connected with my ancestry or my spouse's ancestry. I'm trying to get everyone linked up and get Pictures and Biographies or Obituaries. Please add your PICTURES and send me OBITUARIES/BIOGRAPHIES. Sometimes I request transfers in order to do the above.

I believe everyone should have a memorial and I want to share my information and Pictures. You have my permission to anything I've posted.

Please contact me if you wish to exchange information, can add to, need to correct, or would like additional information. Please use the edit feature within the memorial to let me know of any corrections/additions to my listings so that I may make the changes.

I will gladly transfer ownership of a memorial to you if they fall within the Find A Grave guidelines, unless they are part of my own genealogical research.

SPECIAL THANKS:
To those who create memorials of people that are not related so that others may find their relatives. This is a great service you provide.

To those volunteer photographers who just like to help others, thank you for all the time you spend. Your work confirms burial locations and makes the memorial much more meaningful.

RE: Romamus Chronister
Lol, sorry. 1872 would be correct.

Busenbarks in Leland Cemetery
Hi,

I do not consider gravestones to be sources in and of themselves because, in my experience, they are often wrong and can mislead future researchers. So I prefer to leave birthdate "unkown" and let each person decide if they want to calculate a birthdate from the stone for their own research.

I did find a census record stating all of Henry and Harriet's children who were living in 1850 we all born in Michigan (which might also be wrong, but it is all there is to go in at this point). However, William was deceased by then, and as he was their first child, he may have well been born in New York for all we know. Unless you have something more to go on, I will leave the birthplace as unknown. I also do not think death places are obvious, either, as I have found plenty of people who have died elsewhere while on trips and were returned home for burial. So, again, until there is some concrete idea of where one died, I prefer to leave as "unknown."

A good example of the inaccuracy of old records is the information I gathered on Adolphus, from two conflicting state records, one which said he was 36 at death and another stating 39. Simetimes we have to keep digging until we get a perponderance of evidence that points us in the likeliest direction.

Also, you mentioned Louisa Matveia b. 1835. She is not buried in Leland Cemetery with the others. Perhaps another contributor created her memorial? I know she is not one of "mine."

Hope this helps.

Busenbark family in Michigan
Hello,

Thank you the suggested changes to the memorials for several Busenbark family members in Leland Cemetery. I noticed that these requests include adding places of death and specific birth dates or years. May I ask if you have documentation for these changes or, in the case of birth dates, are you calculating them from the information on the gravestone? As for death places, it is risky to add a death place without some sort of proof as it was not uncommon for a person to live in another state and die there, but be sent "home" for burial. I've even had to change a death place upon discovering a person died in another state while on business!
Please drop me a note.

Thanks

I went to the correct cemetery they are buried in. I talked with some local people that told me the name of the cemetery was Deakins because I could tell the picture posted was not where the graves were. I also talked with someone that knows the daughter of Donna the wife and she said she was just slow getting her headstone in place that she was buried at the same place. Thanks

Your very welcome. I have noticed a lot the last family member doesn't have a marker. And there did appear to be a grave beside theirs.

RE: Burns
You are most welcome..

The more people I find the more I realise that they are interlinked to other families eg; as Esther and Alice Briggs (my maternal 5Cx2R) who married brothers Frank and Joseph Burns (my maternal 3Cx2R). This makes them maternal 2C's to their spouses via the John Worral/Ann Lowe line and 5C's at the same time following the Robert White line dependant upon which line you follow...

(*according to my family tree package 'Legacy' which worked it out for me).
