Bio and Links
Have been fascinated by genealogy most of my life, and being the only child, I want to make sure everything is preserved for my own children. My searches lead me in the direction of Bir(c)kheads, Clemens, Tackaberry, Monteith, and so many more as I keep finding them. I am also an avid photographer for my local cemeteries, and am currently working on Mount Hope in Middleville, MI. I have completely photographed Yankee Springs Cemetery in Barry County, MI and South Martin, Allegan, MI.

Jason is my Grandmother's brother. I would like to have him transferred to me if you don't mind so I can add some family information and pictures. Thank you. Leslie

RE: Charles & Retta Nieb

Whenever you get a chance will be fine. I have Niebs in my Bailey side of the family. Maybe we have more in common. I look forward to sharing with you. I am still friends with Janet, so if you can't find your information, I can always talk to Janet and ask her, too. Thanks again for your response.

Charles & Retta Nieb
Paula, I noticed that on Retta M Nieb's memorial #109550090 that you are showing her parents as David Nieb and Anna M Brechenser. I am wondering if the parents shouldn't be under Charles E Nieb's memorial #109550213 instead. Do you have any proof that those are the parents of Retta?

I am not sure if Charles was married before to a Betty Jo Crumb or if Retta is Betty Jo Crumb's birth name. Do you have any other information about Retta or Charles before their marriage?

Rebecca Wall
Birckhead Family Cemetery (Hollymead Town Center area)
Hello Paula, My name is Rebecca (Beckie) Wall. I have just recently (by chance) saw your pictures of the Birckhead Family Cemetery. I am from the Charlottesville, VA area. My ancestors are buried in that cemetery. My father, Peyton Gentry (now deceased) made the cross overlooking the cemetery, which I never had the heart to tell him he had spelled the family name wrong (he was in his 80s when he made it). It is actually my mother's family members that are buried there. Prior to "modernization", this area of Albemarle County had been my mother's old home place. Mom is now 91, residing in a nursing facility and sadly, suffers from dementia. Prior to her illness, she had told me many stories of her childhood. Her mother (my grandmother) was a Birckhead (maiden name). Thomas Mann Birckhead of which you posted a picture of the memorial was my maternal great-grandfather. Would you be so kind as to fill me in on where you fit into the Birckhead family. I too, am interested in my family's ancestry. My email address is: I am also on Facebook: Rebecca Gentry Wall Thank you so very much.

Sarah Emrick photo request
Hi Paula,

I had gone to the cemetery to see where Sarah is located. They didn't have one listed under Emrick for those dates, but when I get a chance to go back I will have them check different spellings. It may be under a different spelling of her surname. I haven't given up.

I will let you know.
