Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Daughter of a Union Veteran of the Civil War. (DUVCW) My Great Great Grandfather, John Delong fought in the Civil War. I am unable to find his grave. He died in Spencerville, Ohio on June 17, 1895 at the age of 84.

I volunteer at the Grand Rapids, Michigan Home for Veterans.
I maintain the Cemetery records and make sure the tombstones get ordered and placed at the burial site in a timely manner.

I am an United States Air Force Veteran.

Also I am the secretary for the Grand Rapids Civil War Round Table. And I am a director on our newly formed group, Friends of Michigan Veterans' Homes. We raise money for the little extras for our Vets in the Homes.

It is hard for me to pass a cemetery without stopping. Lucky for me, my husband has the same interests.

Please if you request a transfer, please use the EDIT key. Also send me your ID number.

RE: ST ANDREWS
I wondered how to handle the ones that we have no official interment record of yet other documents state that they are buried there. I am hoping that as things progress and other documentation comes to light, we will be able to find a location.

Loved the sunshine today!

If at all possible, could you transfer them to me, as I am their Great-grandson. Their son Martin was my Grandfather, who was also originally from Grand Rapids, but who died in Niagara Falls, ONT. My dad was from Canada, but alas I was born in Boston.

Thanks for your prompt reply. I'll send a correction to the person who owns Mattie'd memorial.

RE: Walter Buck's grave
Although I live near Woodland, IN my line of Bucks moved directly from NY to MI, where I was born. I'm from Walter's oldest son (apparently by his first wife Mary) Alvin, whose grave is in Linden, MI. I have a photo of it if it's not already on here--AFAIK it's the oldest grave in the cemetery, 1870.

RE: WALTER BUCK'S CHILDREN
Walter's wife Chloe was mentioned on deeds with Walter in 1810 and 1850. Hope that helps. I have never found her last name.
