On Lucille Benson's Memorial, Silver Strike should be Silver Streak.
|Barbara Durocher||Mary (McCormick) McIntosh Birth Year|
Just checked the Michigan, Death Records 1867-1950 for Mrs. Mary McIntosh putting her death at 31 July 1913, her birthday as 31 July 1845 and her age at 68 years old. As usual other Censuses estimate her birth year as 1846. Thus the confusion.
|Barbara Durocher||Margaret C. McIntosh Mack (McEachin)|
Hi, Jim. Margaret C. McIntosh was married to John James Mack (McEachin) #8124214.
|Love Always, Renee||Vincent Sabalausky|
Hi Jim, my husband and I were at Great Lakes Nation Cemetery today. My parents are there. I tried to do your photo request for Vincent, but found out that he does not have a headstone. I took photos of your Grandparent's graves with the Christmas wreaths. The cemetery will be removing the wreaths next weekend. It is very beautiful there with all the wreaths. This spring, I may be able to do some of your other photo requests. Take care and best wishes always.

Thanks so much for your generous donation of time when creating & maintaining these memorials.
I hope Your Holidays are happy, comfortable & safe.

Hi Jim, I hope you have a blessed Christmas. I never hear from Nancy any more, and Phil never liked me very much. Best wishes to you and I will say a special prayer for you to have peace in your heart and joy in your life.
I posted a photo of his Niche that is currently unmarked. James
|Zelda||RE: Millard Johnson and Mrs. Jeanette Bujel|
Mr. Johnson's photo has been added.
There's only a few weeks left in stone placement in the cemeteries so Mrs. Jeanette Bujel may not get a stone until next spring.
Her grave is close to some family and friends, so I'll try and keep an eye on things.

I fulfilled your request for Mrs. Mary Johnson at St. Hedwig Cemetery in Dearborn Heights, Michigan.
Next to her stone was the following:
Millard R. Johnson
SHSN US NAVY
May 28, 1940 June 26, 2013
If you start his memorial, I can add his photo.
Please, let me know how you'd like to proceed.

As you've noticed, Mr. and Mrs. Ledford do not have stones in place (sincere apologies for this delayed response).
Mrs. Virginia Piotrowski's stone was in place and her memorial has been updated.
