Bio and Links
Bio Photo My "home place" is St. Clair County, Michigan, particularly the St. Clair River District, where my families have lived since 1835. It has been my privilege to have served with both the East China Historical Commission and the St. Clair Historical Commission.

Findagrave is a wonderful resource to historians, genealogists and families. In the interest of accuracy, if you have an edit for any of my entries, please use "any other corrections or additions" to add your source material for the additions/changes. That way, we can all work together so that those that have gone before us will have their information entered correctly.

Please feel free to use any of my photographs; a "taken by Suzanne" note would be appreciated.

I love walking through old cemeteries and have enjoyed preserving in photographs the old forgotten and crumbling, broken stones. The children's stones with the little lambs particularly touch my heart. Lovely too, are the pictorial spiritual testimonies carved in stone that adorn many of the old graves, pointing to the life to come, the life that knows no death.

"Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die." John 11:25

Suzanne, As I was reading your bio I notice you mentioned Daniel Jackson and Mary Hurley. Daniel Jackson, married to Mary Hurley, is my 4th great uncle. I am related through Daniel Jackson's sister, Elizabeth Jackson Copsey. Small world, I don't want the memorial page back, I just wanted to you know this. John

RE: Norman Wheaton Faulk
Thank you again!

The obit has been posted in the bio, with an explanation. There are so many cemeteries around Ithaca! Under the circumstances he had have been buried in the least expensive one available. Since the family usually spelled the name Falk, i've tried searching with that spelling as well. Nothing located yet!

Hi Suzanne,

You mentioned the details but didn't provide the obit itself. Since Preston Hollow is the best info we have at this time, i agree. That could be posted and if the actual burial is found, a note could be made there as well.

Yes, you'd think if he was that successful as a lawyer, that Norman could have paid for the headstone for his nephew. And that his estate could have returned his body to Preston Hollow.

Thanks again for all your research and willingness to share it so the best possible information is available!

Norman Wheaton Faulk
I apologize for the delay in answering your edit for Norman Wheaton Faulk.

It was quite a shock to get your note that he was NOT in Preston Hollow! Always assumed that his death date wasn't on the headstone because there was no one left in his family to have it chiseled in.

What great research you have done to discover where he went and why he wasn't returned to his home location. Thank you so much for sharing the details.

So, as you no doubt already know, the Ithaca website has a cemetery search engine and they don't list Norman as being buried there. Where do we go from here?!

Thanks again for this information!

RE: Wesbrook/Westbrook
Thank you very much for the reply. Noticed when doing research many of my relatives in St. Clair Co., Michigan had a legal(birth) name of Westbrook, but later in life were using Wesbrook having dropped the T.

What is the basis for the apparent interchangeability of these last names(Wesbrook/Westbrook)? Is there some historical basis, or are they just two spellings of the same name? It creates problems doing genealogical research. Some families use the different spellings within the same family unit. Thank You
