Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Isabella County, Michigan - in the middle of the mitten!

I generally do not add the raw data from census records, death indices, and other documents in my memorials biographical section. I will use information in the records to update birth and death dates and places, names and link family members.

Although Find a Grave allows records such as death certificates or military documents to be uploaded on the memorial pages, I would prefer you not upload them if they are findable online. It is important to leave that space available for items like photos of the person and their marker. The information found on these documents can be summarized in the biography. It is nice to open a memorial and find a cemetery photo, marker photo, or even a personal picture.

When requesting a transfer please use the edit tab and be sure to include your Find-A-Grave number.

Please feel free to use my pictures on your family tree with appropriate credit to Curtiss48858 on Find-A-Grave. Thanks!

RE: Daniel Caffery request in Calvary
Hi Curtis, this is really something and greatly appreciated. Mystery is solved. Daniel Caffery would not have a stone then because I just came across his obituary not to long ago in and his obituary indicated that he was going to be buried with his parents - Catherine and William Caffery. So the photos you sent where great and Thomas Caffery would be Daniel's brother - so really something. Thank you so much. If you are going back over the Calvary Cemetery in the near future, I have about 12 other family members I would be looking for photos of their stones, I am think a 12 people, or 6-7 stones. I f interested, I going to create their profiles on Findagrave.
Thanks so much. truly appreciated!

Thanks Heather. I deleted one. When Larry was alive we both did a lot of genealogy work on and and MIGenWeb. Since his passing 3.5 years ago, I just haven't had the heart to get back into it. I've also been busy doing what needs to be done. Pray for Houston as the flooding is horrible. Such a tragedy for this area. I'm high and dry in the Texas Hill Country - the sun is shining here today. The only rain we've had has been gentle and steady - just the kind we need.

RE: Julius & Alida Windels in Calvary Cemetery
Hey Heather, thanks for your note. I spent a whole night working on the Windels and trying to straighten everything out. That darned S seemed to be a bone of contention between their kids. Some used it, some didn't. I have a feeling that the one who ordered the headstone was an "anti-S" Windel :D. I decided to revert to the spelling that Mom and Dad actually used when alive.

RE: Mary Magdalena Riegle obit
Not a problem. I have been researching for a co-worker.. Her grandfather was Daniel Riegle son of this woman in the obit.. I also want to say that your state I feel has one of the best informational
digitized databases out there!!! I have learned so much about my own family and am very grateful for their time and efforts spent for folks that are not living there.. Now if I could find Daniel Riegle's gravesite so that I could connect the Oregon people to him... my friend would love that!!!
Thanks again!

Maude Thompson Smith 99942418
Maude's father Thomas Thompson died in 1922 and is buried according to his death certificate in the Catholic Cem.(Calvary) in Mount Pleasant. The Thompson plot with mother Ellen and brothers Charles and Frank is very close to where Maude is buried. There us is a large stone with the Thompson name and I surmise Thomas is there.

RE: Farr's in Mount View Cemetery
> The only other Farr I found with them was Thomas E. Farr. If you know who he is and his full dates of birth and death I would be happy to update the memorial I created and/or transfer him to you.

I'm guessing that this is him:
Thomas E. Farr (11-Oct-1870 - 4-Feb-1907) married Alvina Reaves (Jul-1878 - 29-Feb-1948) on 22-May-1895

His parents were William Farr and Maria Louisa Morgan:

If you want to transfer the memorial to me, I'll take care of it.
If you want to hang on to it, that's fine with me, too.

And thanks!
