Bio and Links
I have been working on genealogy for over 45 years. It never ends.

I would be happy to transferr any memorials I am not related to. Beware, if you send me info, I will probably transfer to you, so you may update as you wish.

I have taken many headstone photos. Some are not as good as I would like. If you have a better one, please add it.

Be sure to check out for info on Muskegon County, MI. Great site, lots of info there.

Loretta Bowles
Please transfer the memorial page for Loretta Bowles to my sister Maureen. Her email address is:

Loretta is our maternal grandmother. She was married to J.Alfred Johnson (our grandfather),
Wm Bowles, and Herbert Victor Johnson (our uncle). I don't know why she decided to be barried next to Bill, but Hibby (Herbert) was burried next to his first wife, Florence.

On the entry in Find-a-Grave do you always list the persons 1)last legal name, 2)name on gravestone, or 3)by their birth name ?????

Thanks, Tom Miller

Thank you for the unexpected, but much appreciated, recent transfers. Many of them are collateral relatives, so I will continue to update them as I find more info, and pass them along to a closer relative when I find one. I'm very grateful for the many leads I found due to your work on the site

RE: Obits
Thank you so much. I find that findagrave is a little confusing to work with.
