Hi there ... I am inquiring about Raymond L Dickinson's site. I was wondering if I could possibly take it over, as you see, he is my father in law. There are a few pictures I would like to add and add to the small obit you had found. Also, would like to find out more about whom you are related to in the family. You can email me at .. thank you .. Mary Ann Dickinson

RE: Washing Cemetery, Ennest photo's
Re:I was in Washington cemetery fulling some of my own memorials. And can not help wondering if your William is any relation to Hiram Ennest. Hiram was born 1820 in New York and died in 1885 in Sanilac COunty. I've only tracked three children to him:
Matilda A Ennest Derby (1851 - 1925)*
Sarah Amanda Ennest Dickinson (1852 - 1915)*
Selina S Ennest Ennest (1855 - 1945)*

Is there any family connection that you know of?
I am not a descendant of William Ennest, his daughter Carrie married my Grandmother's cousin Frank Reed. John, Hannah, Frank and Carrie Reed are on the opposite side of the big stone, Ennest on one side, Reed on the other. I checked with my 3rd cousin and we reviewed the Ennest Tree which I maintain with my Reid/Reed tree on ancestry, this is what we have come up with. William Ennest's father was George Anestis Ennest, born 1826 in Canada, died in Sanilac in 1893, his father was Cornelius Ennest who was born in New York. Cornelius had a brother Hiram born 28 June 1880, Auroa, Cayuga, New York, died 21 Jan 1885, Lexington, Sanilac. From another tree on ancestry, I found that he was married 3 times, the 3 children you have are from his 2nd wife. He had 2 from his first marriage

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.

My bad! I have used the Sandusky Library. They have a great genealogy department. I found lots of obits on line. I wish other libraries would do the same.
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.
