Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born in Michigan and have worked as a Project Superintendent in commercial construction with the same company since 1968. Retired June 2011.

I have been researching my Pekrul line for fifteen years. In 2007 my wife and I went to Poland to visit a cousin I met on line and do some further research.

Names that I'm researching Pekrul all locations, Hay in Ohio, Delk and McIntosh in Tenn, and all related family's. The Pekrul name maybe spelled Pakrul, Peckrul, Pekrol or some other variant. I found the spelling Pekrul in a 1810 Catholic record in Poland for my GGGgrandfather written in Latin.

This photo was taken in OCT 2009 when I visited my McIntosh great grandparents crypt at the Bellevue Cemetery & Mausoleum in Ontario, CA.

Lindner stone in Woodland Cem
Hi Jim,
I wanted to confirm with you that the larger LINDNER stone that was between the two smaller "Mother" and "Father" stones, I think I asked you if it had any writing on the back (maybe you took photo of it)? We think we know who Mother and Father are but the date of death of Mother is 10 years off what we know to be actual. We thought if we knew who had purchased the larger stone, maybe that would give us a clue and help us confirm our thoughts.

Thanks so much!

Thank you for adding a photo of the memorial stone. I appreciate you doing this...and for all the other photos you have been adding to memorials that I have been creating for those who have passed on in these communities. It is nice to know that others have a zeal for preserving things that are important to others. Again, thank you for adding to Find a Grave...

Hi again, Jim,
Thank you - you must have just added the Mother stone to the webpage. I didn't see it at first and that is why my question probably didn't make sense to you. All I saw were the Father and the Lindner stones. This is perfect to have the two parents stones and the family stone. Thank you again!

Thank you!
Hi Jim,
Thank you for the photos! Did the one for Mother not have a separate stone? Is the Lindner front just the other side of the one that says Father?

Thank you!

RE: Charlotte Kent McIntyre
On November 19, 1882 at age of 21 Orien married Martha A. McLaughlin in Le Roy, Michigan. Martha A McLaughlin was born Dec. 6, 1861 in McKillop, North Huron, Ontario Canada to father William McLaughlin (b. 1833 from Ireland) and mother Margaret McLaughlin (b.1836 from Canada but of Irish descent). The McLaughlin family latter moved to Seattle and then Napa, California.

During his early adult years, Orien Kent and family lived in Cedar Township and Le Roy Township while he worked as an Engineer for the William Horner Lumber Co. He was also a member of the Reed City Masonic Lodge. The 1900 Census shows him as Engineer (RR) but it is believed that he was associated with the lumber company and supplying product via the Railroad.

On August 11, 1915, Martha A McLaughin Kent passed at age 54. Their children were then ages 25, 21, and 15. Their daughter, Lila, later married at age 18 to Sheldon Victor Fenner.

On June 6,1916, Orien E. Kent, at age 54, married Lottie (Charlotte) McIntyre (from Canada originally). This was also Charlette’s second marriage. Her maiden name was Charlotte Royal. The couple moved to Grand Rapids, Michigan and lived at 1138 Grandville Ave.

Orien worked for the next 15 years at the Nichols & Cox Lumber Company on Godfrey Ave. He lived with Charlotte’s son and his wife from her previous marriage, (Howard and Lillian) McIntyre.

On December 23, 1935, Orien E. Kent died from a cerebral hemorrhage at his home. Funeral service was in Grand Rapids and the burial was at Reed City next to his first wife. At the time of his burial, the nation was in the middle of The Great Depression, accounting for his small headstone.

RE: Martha A
Yes I believe Orien Kent was buried there during the depression. Probably not much spent on headstone. Please show him buried there. Thanks, Mark Kent
