Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started researching my family history after my mother died from a hereditary disease but got hooked and have been climbing the family tree for over 30 years. I hope I have contributed to the family history for generations to come.

I am a volunteer with the Portage Community Historical Society and they have allowed me to have a genealogy and historical research area in the Goin Museum. If you have an early Portage Township family, consider donating a copy of your family history to our museum.

My Favorite Poem

A Daisy Beside the Rose
by Diana Sue Lindley Horton

Among the many flowers, God,
Within Your garden fair,
May I, a simple daisy be
So proudly standing there.

I need not be the most admired,
Great beauty to disclose;
It's certain in Your garden,God,
Not all can be a rose.

'Twould be to me an honor,
If where Your garden grows,
I could but be a daisy -
That stands beside the rose.

Hi Kathy,

I'm curious about this man being listed as the son of William Lee Cowsert. I'm doing some research for one of his daughters (William Lee) and came across this memorial.

Can you shed any light on that for me?

Thanks, and also thank you for all you do for Porter genealogy.

RE: Calvary Cemetery
You're very welcome. It's a good way to distract myself when I'm on a long boring phone call.
So how does it work? There's a huge cemetery near me that has so many graves not listed on here - I can photograph the stones and not have to set up a memorial for each one? I can throw the pictures out there and let someone help with it?

Hi: I was just looking at this memorial and saw there are pictures of two headstones, one of which doesn't belong to this person. I thought you'd want to know.

Krueger burial spot
You mentioned that my 3x great-grandparents, Frederick and Mary Krueger, are not buried in McCool Cemetery, but Blake. I know their daughter Frances is buried in Blake, but my records show her parents are in McCool. Can you give me any other proof in case? Thank you!
