|j wyke||To cheer you up/peek your interest|
Good evening Lady in Black
here is one that will peak your interest.
Esther Ann Farmer Taylor aka Tayler
I believe that it was a typing error .
Esthers' father was John Farmer the famous map make in Detroit. Her brother was Silas Farmer and we all know who he was. They are linked together here. But she is here at Woodmere and so is her husband.
By the way Silas was doing part of the Hamilton/Barnes genealogy . He sent for information on two of his great-granfathers and there are notations in the margins of the orginal Rev.War papers. "Copies sent to Silas Farmer Detroit Mi."
So I thought this might peak your interest,as I'm a history nut on Detroit also.
Hope you feel better
have a good evening
Judy in MI

Yes, Hugo is my Grandfather and Florence Schaarschmidt is my grandmother. Charles is my uncle. There also is another stone nearby for Rev Hugo Schaarschmidt and his family. I really would like to have control of these members of the family. Thanks

|Jeffrey Carney||Henry Wittenberg Memorial|
Thank you Lady in Black for posting this picture of my great-great grandfather and mother's memorial. It was a real asset in helping figure out whether he went by Heinrich or Henry. I have seen this head stone many times as my great grandfather and mother are buried not far away, Frank C Wittenberg and Mabel A Wittenberg.
Thank you again for posting this, it was a real thrill to find it.
You said that you are related to many of the memorials that you photograph, are you by any chance related to Henry Wittenberg?

Thank you so much for the pictures of the gravesite for my paternal great-grandfather, George T. Burridge. My Aunt Ann and Uncle Dick (George's grandchildren) and my cousin Janet made the trip to Woodmere a couple of years ago, but even with a map, missed finding the grave. I very much appreciate being able to see the stones are still standing.
Thank you for taking the time to record this. Your work is truly appreciated.

Hello Lady in Black,
I don't know why you chose to photograph this gravesite but it is my great-grandfather's. I am so pleased to see that it is visible and intact! I have not been able to be visit the cemetery in many years and it is surprisingly comforting to see this photo of his gravestone. Thank you for your work!

Many thanks for transferring Ida's memorial to me. I've been researching the Buckius/Bockius family for years. When I find new information about Ida, I'll add it to her memorial. Linda H

Hi I am new to this find a grave website. I was on another site that listed my grandfather Happy P Pawelczyk as having a picture and sure enough it was one you took. I didn't know if someone had requested it or why it's on here. Just curious, again, new to this website. Thanks!

HI: I've been discovering all your pictures from Woodmere. Thanks for all your hard work. I didn't realize you were doing so much of Woodmere. Good for you! Thanks for the information on Mt. Carmel. When I get some time, I will check it out. It took you 3 years to photograph that cemetery - what dedication! Keep up the good work...

HI: Thanks for the McCourt picture. Since there is a McCourt monument, aren't Elizabeth's parents buried there? There must be some McCourt family members buried there. I'm surprised there are no names or dates on the monument. It doesn't help...

Hi: Thanks for the wonderful picture of his gravestone. I don't understand why I couldn't find him. He looks like somebody I would have liked. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to meet him. Thanks for all your hard work at Woodmere. I see Gail has made the website a prison...do not enter............

|Chris ||Otto Sieloff #117256926|
Hi: I'm back home and catching up. I just read your message from Sept on Otto Sieloff. I posted him under his given name - Otto Sielaff a few years ago - #55079221. I thought he kept the "A" and didn't change to "O." It's great that you found his stone. I walked that section of Fernwood several times in 2010 or 2011 and couldn't find him or the Stepkes. Of course, it was at the end of a LONG day at Woodmere. Would you mind putting the picture on his original memorial? I will make a note of the name change. You can use the new one for someone else. Thanks...

|Anne042068||Andrew Jakcsy Memorial photo #83427804|
Hello Lady in Black. Thank you for nice photos of the grave markers of several members of the Jakcsy family. I'm wondering how you got such clear photos? Did you clean the stones or did you use Photoshop to increase contrast? The other photos of the same stones are not nearly as clear. Just wondering how you did that?

Hello, my Lady in Black! Im sosorry to see that you are having health issues and really want to thank you for even making an attempt fot this grave site. I am very grateful and appreciate your note on circumstances of his headstone.
I had same experience in Detroits Mt Elliott cem-my parternal grandmothers stone had sunk 3-4 ft. They were kind enough to raise it for me as I was visiting Detroit at the time and she was nowhere to be found! I then got a phone pic sent to me by the gravedigger so I would have the raised stone for records again. Nice people out there, I was happy as I live in Bethlehem, Pa now. Grew up in Muskegon.
Hope you feel better and please enjoy your holidays.

|Thomas Torango||Joseph Saucier Sr.|
Thank you again for your contributions to my memorials. I have added a short biography to Joseph Saucier's memorial #36430016 which helps to explain why he is buried in an unmarked single grave at Mt. Carmel cemetery. His wife, Mary Ringuette Saucier is buried there in the Joseph Rushlow plot. Her memorial is #36430056.
Their children who are also buried there are:
Susanna Saucier Rushlow memorial #13143192 – Not linked to parents!
Marie Adele Saucier Rushlow memorial #76121377 – Is linked to parents.
Henriettta Saucier Christie memorial #13142427 – Not linked to parents!
Theodore Saucier YOUR memorial #67110941 – Not linked to parents! Would you please?
Edith Saucier Perry memorial #13128086 – not linked to parents!
Joseph Saucier memorial #36429444 – Is linked to parents.
A suggested correction to your memorial #67110973 for Theodore Saucier's wife Margaret. Her maiden name was Montroy, not Montowe.
Thanks and peace be with you,
