Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired programmer, interested in Genealogy, Computers and Traveling. I live in the Detroit Area and will be more than happy to visit any cemetery and take a picture of a grave of interest. Any of the pictures or other information that I have posted to can be used by anyone for whatever volunteer purpose they would like. You may not use the pictures if they will be used for a make for profit purpose. Other than family members any memorials will be transferred to you if requested. I would prefer transferring the memorial to you than to add or make changes to the memorial. Also please give me a little time to transfer the memorials. Thanks

Sylvester Royce

I think I solved the mystery. In the 1860 US census Town of Sterling, Macomb, MI shows, Sylvanus (Silvenus/Silvanus) B. Royce 44 years married to Mary 39 years with a son Clayton 14 years and Solomon Gregory 79 years. The Mary Gregory is listed as born in NY. I believe the death certificate for Clayton is in error since it lists the wrong Royce brother as the father. This isn't the first mistake on formal records.

The Mary Jones who married Sylvester was born abt. 1818 in New York and her father it looks like her father's first name was Northrup/Northrop from other sites I have shared with you.

I contacted the person who set the memorial for Mary Gregory Cady and shared this info. that he had the wrong Royce brother married to Mary Gregory. He has made a note in her memorial and hopefully this will help others.

Hope you will correct the Find a Grave memorial 16133830 for Sylvester.

Transfer of Deede Mason 6706906
You recently transferred her memorial to me....I don't know why you did this, as I have never requested the transfer, nor am I related to this person.

I am transferring it back to you; if you no longer wish to manage the memorial, perhaps you could delete it? It is a duplicate.

David P Stephens Memorial 16585490
David Stephens - Find A Grave Memorial 16585490

Jack, You have David F Stephens listed as David P. Stephens. His middle initial is F - the F stands for Fellows - his mother's maiden name. You also have his birth date listed as his son's birth date. David F Stephens was born October 22, 1819 in New York to Elisha Stephens (1787 - 1837) and Lousia Fellows Stephens (1794 - 1831. Elisha's Find A Grave Memorial is 7497760. He buried in Curtis Cemetery, Shelby Township, Michigan. Louisa Fellows Stephens' Find A Grave Memorial is #121374835. She is buried in Rochester Junction Cemetery. Mendon, New York.
David F Fellows married Mary Vandenburg on March 2, 1847 in St. Claire, Michigan. In 1848 they moved to a farm located one mile north and one mile west of Yale where they raised their large family. At the time, Brockway Township was dense wilderness. 5 sons and 5 daughters were born there: David, Omar, Franklin, Orlando, Hiram, Mary, Deesta, Celia, Ardella, Racenia. David F Stephens died on March 21, 1869, age 49 and was buried in McFadden Cemetery Yale St. Clair County Michigan. He died without a will, and his estate was administered by his brother, Henry Stephens.

Your Memorial for Maggie Stephens - dates unknown.
I have been researching our Stephens family for years. I believe Maggie Stephens is
Margaret L Stephens, 1st wife of George A Stephens. She was born abt. 1876 in Indiana to Joseph Scribner and Margaret Mavis. She Died April 12, 1902 In Brockway, Michigan. Maggie (Margaret) and George were married Sept 20, 1900 in Elk Township, Sanilac, Michigan.

George's parents - David F. Stephens, Jr. and Annie (Anna Eliza Godden) are both buried in McFadden Cemetery, and Anna has just "Annie" on her headstone - also an unknown. Their headstones have been vandalized and are broken.

It would be nice if Maggie had some "flesh" put on her bones if you would add details. . :-)
Most Sincerely, Mary Ellen Hermann
You can contact me at with any questions.

Sandy Hill Cemetery Also known as: Coppernoll Cemetery
Hello. I am writing to you regarding Sandy Hill Cemetery, also known as Coppernoll Cemetery. This cemetery is located in Scofield, Monroe County, Michigan. I am questioning as to whether the picture you posted is truly of that cemetery. The picture that was not posted by you is what the cemetery has looked like for a very long time. I am wondering if your picture could be of the Old St. Pat's Cemetery in Carleton, Michigan? While I am not 100% certain what cemetery your picture IS of, I know it is not Sandy Hill. As to not mislead the people who view the Sandy Hill page, would you please consider looking into this matter, and possibly removing your picture of Sandy Hill? Thank you in advance for your reply.
