Bio and Links
Bio Photo Welcome, everyone. I am Frank Passic, Albion Historian (Albion, Calhoun County, Michigan). Check out the listings for Riverside Cemetery, as this cemetery dates back to 1837, and most burials are now listed on Findagrave. If your ancestor lived in the Albion, Michigan area, I might be able to help you. I write a weekly history column and many of these have been published on the web site. Be sure to check this out and type in a name in the search engine there, and you can also leave a message on the guestbook. If your ancestors lived in the Albion area, feel free to contact me and I can look up to see if any of your surnames are buried in Riverside Cemetery in Albion. I live only a few blocks from the cemetery and am more than happy to receive photo requests for there. I also maintain a private Albion area history archives with many surname files. Best wishes in your quest and research. Frank Passic, Albion Historian.
NOTE: With the advent of Findagrave's links to relatives and having posted thousands of entries, it can be time consuming to have to link parents and spouses. When requesting links to parents or spouses, please use the Findagrave "Edit" tab in the upper right corner of each individual listing, rather than a request on my message board here. Thanks for your consideration.

Thought you would like some additional information on Lucy. She was the daughter of Charles & Charity Jane (Fike) Rayhill. Born ca 1855 in St Clair County Ill. She married George F.

Her death was noted in her uncle's (Henry C Fike) diary on 17 Jul 1895: Saw in the Globe Democrat [St. Louis, MO] the Mrs. Lucy Heath, my neice, died in Monroe, Michigan on Monday last.

John Morrison Young
Hi Frank,
I see you set up the information about James Morrison Young on Find A Grave. I thought you may be able to help me as you are the Albion Historian. I believe John Morrison Young may be the sibling of my great-grandfather, James Joseph Young. James was born in about 1843 and came to Australia in about 1863. His death certificate lists his parents as Robert Young and Susan Morrison from Fermanagh. These are the same parents you list for John Morrison Young - and the same County. In your bio of John, you mention that he was headed for Australia but ended up in the USA. It would have been the same time that my great-grandfather made the trip to Australia. I've been looking for many months for information about my great-grandfather's family and I think this is a very promising lead. Are you able to give me any more information about John Morrison Young's family? Thanks in anticipation. Virginia
