RE: Henderson-Memphis
Hi Melissa - Eliza Claggett Henderson was a younger sister of my 2 gr grandfather: Stephen Claggett. So that would make her my 2nd great grand aunt. I just wanted to enter all the family memorial numbers so the family members in the Memphis Cemetery are connected. If you want to do the editing, that's fine with me. Here is the info:

Father: William Henderson #115554681 (I have contacted a JillW to have her release or update his entry.
Mother: Eliza Claggett Henderson #15484773

Edith Henderson #65840484
Lena Henderson #65869693
Omar Henderson #65869779
Wm Ashley Henderson #65870585

How are you connected to this family? I have written two books on the Claggetts and was unable to find any living descendants at the time of publication. The above children who lived to adulthood never married so I assume you are connected to Frances Jane (Henderson) Smith or Mary A. (Henderson) Tice. Would love to connect with you if you have photos and info to share.

Thanks again,

Jennie A Van Natter/Vanatter
Hi, Melissa. I'm researching the Vanatters as they relate to the McKay family which is related to my Meredith family. These families are from Sanilac County, Michigan. Marian E Meredith, the sister of my 2nd great grandfather, Jesse Meredith, married John McKay. John McKay and Marian were the parents of Edward McKay who married Laura Vanatter Digby after both their spouses died. I am positive that Jennie A Van Natter Young was the sister of Laura as her two sons, Rex and Van Digby, were living with Jennie and Samuel in 1930, listed as nephews of the head of house. Jennie and Laura both have John Vanatter and Mary Ernst listed as their parents on their marriage records. I'm tracking down the parents and siblings of Laura, who died in 1943, to round out my tree...okay, because I'm a crazy amateur genealogist who can't stop following a family line no matter how distantly they're related to me. Edward and Laura didn't have any children together, so bloodline is not an issue, just plain curiosity is what's motivating me.

All of this is just my way of asking if I may use the photos you have for the Vanatters and their allied families in my Lemon, Knapp, Herr, Meredith, Barnard, Oglesby tree on

RE: More Info
Mary Hewitt was Rosetta and James' daughter, so that confirms my beliefs. Thanks for making the transfer. If you want me to take over the other Bradley/Badleys, I'll be happy to. Not sure if they're all connected... some may actually be Bradleys, but maybe some are part of our family. I would love to connect their daughter Lydia (my late husband's grandmother... she's in IA) to them but her name is listed incorrectly and I can't make contact with the contributor to make the changes. I've been trying for over 6 months.

RE: Link Doty

Hello Melissa,

Sorry for the late response, but I was out of town for the last five days.

All your requests have been fulfilled. I did not find a Curtis for Alcona Co., MI, as one of the towns to select. There is only a Curtisville. In looking up Curtisville, it sounds as if Curtisville was known as Curtis during the 1883 time period. Is that correct? If so, I will choose 'Curtisville' but add a note about the name change.

Best Regards,

Mike Cronk

Ridge Cemetery, Beers & Kirbys
Hi Melissa,

Thank you for all the work you have done on the memorials for those buried at Ridge Cemetery, Sanilac Twp, Sanilac County, MI. I was there about a week ago, just before our annual Kirby family reunion in Port Austin.

Where did you get the obituary for Ellen Kirby Beers? She was a sister to my GG-Grandfather, Vincent Eli Kirby. I am trying to find where their parents are buried; they were Eli Kirby and Mary Katherine Hardy Kirby. Kirby has sometimes been spelled Cirby or Curby. They lived near the Ridge Cemetery from about 1850 to about 1879, and then they seem to disappear!

I am a recent member of Find A Grave. Any tips you might share would be greatly appreciated. My email is

Keep up the good work!

I seemed to have intertwined two sets of people into one set.

Volunteer Bill had provided photos of Ernest and Nora Cook's headstones. I inadvertently commented on them on my last message which was about the Wood transfers!
