Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello.

I am in Michigan. I am not related to 99.999% of my entries, but have added them with the hope that other researchers who have come to a dead end may be helped. With respect to those entries, I have no other information available as I have tried to include as much info as I have.


Please do not be offended, but for a number of reasons, including the volume of requests, I transfer memorials in accordance with Find A Grave's published guidelines. If you request a transfer, please be sure to include your relationship to the person who is the subject of the memorial. I cannot respond to transfer requests for all memorials with the same surname in a cemetery or to requests for a large number of memorials with the same surname.

If there are entries which need to be linked, please send the info to me via the correction/EDIT option or Suggest a Change (SAC) in the upper right corner and I will add the links. Also, if you would like me to add information to a memorial, please forward the relevant info via the SAC option for the quickest response.

If there is information in a memorial concerning a living person which you would like removed, please send me a request via the SAC option.

PLEASE DO NOT send transfer requests, relationship links or additional information for memorials via the public messages option. I do not make changes sent to my profile page. PLEASE USE THE EDIT TAB LOCATED IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF THE MEMORIAL.

OBITUARIES: Find A Grave has updated its policy concerning the use of obituaries in memorials (See: "Can I add an obituary to my interment listing?" under the Frequently Asked Questions section). If you send a request asking that an obituary be added, please be sure to confirm in your message that you have complied with the policy or I will not be able to add it.

Generally, I do not link to unknown burials. Nor do I add raw US Census or similar records, preferring instead to add information in sentences.

Many thanks for the kind notes, thank yous, flowers and tokens which are left on the memorials. It is rewarding to know that my work has helped someone.

Thank you.

Oma Holder
I was wondering if you could tell me where you got the info on Oma Stepens marriage to Charles D. Youts.
I have an Oma M. Decker that married him in MI in 1944 and then divorced her in 1944. Only married a few months.
This Oma Decker was also married to an unknown Dolph and a Walter Poteet and Henry Dexter Holder.
I am confused as to if this is the same Oma Decker or not.
Any info you can provide to clear this up would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

John P Philips #125622643
Please correct your information under “NOTE:” The “Death Year” on the marker for John P Philips Jr, the son of John P Philips and Adaline Jones Philips is shown as 1887. This is an ERROR.
The proper “Death Year was 1903.

1887 was the death year of John P Philips, Jr’s father and the incorrect death date was probably family error.

Thank You,

I think you have the wrong William Esty linked here.

Could you do some research and let me know if I am wrong or unlink her from this William.

Thank you
