Marie Kalosis - Photo Request
Thank you for the photo. I looks like you had do perform some gardening to clean off the stone. Thanks for all the extra effort. It's much appreciated.

Thanks! Although he resided in Southfield, his death certificate confirms that he died in Detroit.

RE: Elsie Mae Collins Mosby Feet Adamske
Hello, TLIB,

Thank you so much for the reminder to add Elsie's headstone picture. The picture we took has been added to her memorial, but if you took a better picture, please feel free to add it and I will delete mine.

Hope you're having a great day, and thanks again for all you do at the cemetery.

Edward Gellow, Woodmere Cemetery
Thank you for the suggestion that you sent me on 9/19/13. Sorry it took so long to get back to you. I do not think the person giving his dob on his death cert knew the date. Woodmere records give his dod as 7/15/1945. his age as 56 yrs, 8 mos., 2 days. That comes out as Nov 12, 1888. His WWI draft registration card, in his own hand, gives dob Nov 2, 1887. His WWII draft registration recorded on Apr 27, 1942 gives his age as 54. Since he had not yet had a birthday in 1942 that makes his year of birth 1887. Again, thank you for the observation. death records are not the best source for dates of birth. The dead guy couldn't give his date of birth.

Hi! I am the ex sister in law of Alice Horn and thought you might want to use this picture. Alice Riley married Bill (Wyley) Horn and had 2 kids who are also deceased, Billy and Terry Horn.
She then lived with Tom Malonowski(sorry if the spelling is wrong). Her parents I have a site for, as well as her siblings that have died.
Parents Gerald Leonard Riley and Pauline Christine Smith Riley. Siblings, Delores Picklo,
Norma Riley, Laura Pullen, Tim Riley, Robert Riley and Virgina Pullen. The Pullens are the only ones still alive besides in laws and grandchildren in this direct family. This is the only picture that I have of Alice. Have a nice day!

Thanks for the note about the headstone error! I like the pics that you added, please do not remove them. I will add a bio/comment to the memorial explaining the apparent error on the stone. I wonder why the family never tried to correct the error?

RE: Re: Obituary for Sonja Sue Pfeifle
Everything I sent was on the internet, (public record),and was published in Print in an obituary, and is a Primary Source.
Newspapers Death Notices, Funeral Homes obituaries, Death Records notices are all Primary Sources.
You will see many Obituaries (Newspapers/Funeral Home) and copies of Death Certificates on Find A Grave, it has never been a problem. Even personal family Bios.

Even people not dead yet, i.e. photos of Headstones with one mate has died the other still living.

Thank you!
I just found the memorial for my G-G-G-G-G Grandfather, Henry Miller! There were so many options I thought I'd never narrow it down. If it weren't for the gravestone picture you posted, which had his wife's name on it, I never would have known which Henry Miller it was! Thank you SO much for doing that for me! You rock!

RE: Roush Photo Request at Woodmere
Got it, and again thank you for all your help.

Roush Photo Request at Woodmere
Hey, I sent photo requests for the Roush family (Caroline, Richard, Lillian, and Doris) at Woodmere by going to their individual findagrave pages and clicking request photo a couple weeks ago like your instructions stated. Still no reply. Just don't know how this will actually authorize me to use the pictures though; requesting a new photo when their is already an existing photo posted doesn't make sense to me. If I did not do the request right or if you do not want to allow me to use the pictures for my family tree just let me know. I will honor your request either way.
Thanks for all your work,

Thanks for trying to photograph the graves of Omer, Margaret and Edward Vogt. I have taken your advice and contacted the cemetery to find out if they have grave markers. I appreciate your effort.

Thank you so much for going to Woodmere and taking this photo and others and also for leaving a token at his memorial. You have really made his memorial complete, and I appreciate it.

RE: Concerning the Roush family burried at Woodmere
I use familysearch too and have seen that link. Unfortunately you can't actually view the document yet. I have seen on multiple occasions with other death certs that they get things mixed up. I think Alexandrine, her sister was the informant. I am very sure her mother's name was Josephine. I have the links and pictures of her mother and siblings buried at Saint Johns Cemetery in Ohio as well as the census records and New York passenger lists. You are correct about them being from a canton in Switzerland that speaks French/Belgian, Valais to be exact, either the town of Bagnes or Le Chable. Caroline and Richard also had one son which I have been unable to find out where he is buried, Raymond Roush, who was under Henry Ford, when he ran the Dearborn Plant. Supposedly was very successful in Detroit at one time.

Concerning the Roush family burried at Woodmere
Hello, and great work! Caroline Jackman Roush buried at Woodmere Cemetery most likely is the Caroline I have been looking for. She is my great-great-grandmother from her first marriage to Lewis Schlaeppi. If your Caroline is the same as my Caroline I do have some info/corrections that I can provide. My grandmother is still alive and does remember her very well and her info checks out. I would love to know what you know if you are related. Is their some way I can contact you directly? I would love to speak with you by phone if possible. Also I see in your bio that you do not allow your pictures to be copied. The pictures of the headstones of the Roush at Woodmere would be very important to me and my tree, just tell me what I have to do to obtain them. Looking forward to hearing from you.

RE: Book?
Hello Lady in Black, I love that name.
A while back you took some pics for me in the Woodmere Cemetery in Detroit, thanks again. I'm going home to Michigan in a few weeks and wanted to check this cemetery out for myself. Is it in a scary neighborhood? Should I take someone with me and is there an office onsite to help me find graves?

Kind Regards, Kristina

My parents' "bios"
I have a do you have permission to take photos of other people's family gravesites and post them to the Internet? My parents, were they alive to see this, would be upset about this. Please contact me about removing these posts from your website. Thank you.

I was planning to photograph is Headstone before you put in a request, as when time permitted it was only a 270 km round trip for me to the cemetery. Locating his final resting place too some time, now I am working on having his name inscribed on the Canadian North Wall as we was a Dual Citizen. Thank you.

Well, since I can't email you directly, guess I'll have to contact up publicly. Why did you add a photo to this memorial when there already was one there?
