About my profile picture:
This is not an image I hijacked off an internet search. This is an actual scan of a very old, fragile fragment of a document listing the birthdates of my ancestors. Unfortunately, I have seen others take it and use it as their profile image.
Born and raised in Metro Detroit. Have always loved exploring old cemeteries.
As far back and I can remember our parents took us to cemeteries as a child. Rural Hill in Northville was one of our favorites, especially in the fall. As a teenager, I used to ride my bike to cemeteries because I loved the peacefulness of them and always enjoyed reading the individual headstones.
I especially try to keep up on Commerce Memorial Cemetery. I lived across the street for years and unfortunately, I know many people, both young and old, buried there including my dad and his best friend. I try to add pictures of any new headstones, burial plot information and the GPS coordinates for each burial.
Uncle Bill's memorial.
When requesting a transfer, suggesting a correction, or addition, please use the "Edit" tab on the memorial. It is much easier as it provides me with a link to the memorial.
If I have added any of your relatives and you would like me to transfer them to you, please ask! I generally only keep my direct lines.
If you are related to one of my relatives, I may have additional information on them that is not posted here.
