Re: #110737350
Hi Kate,

My husband's uncle, Fransisco Villarreal, is one of the memorials you have documented in St. Mary's Cemetery in Calhoun County, Marshall, MI. We are both new to genealogy and not familiar with the appropriate protocols, but are willing to learn.

We are traveling to Benton Harbor from metro Detroit area for a wedding this weekend and would like to stop and pay our respects, but we have no idea how to locate where in the cemetery Fransisco's grave is located. Do you keep a record of the location of sites you have photographed? I just called and left a message for someone at the church hoping they could help. I have no idea if there's an onsite caretaker as I can't seem to find that information online.

Fransisco was my mother-in-laws youngest brother. He drowned in nearby Pine Lake in July of 1948 along with two cousins who are also buried at St. Mary's. Fransisco, his parents and siblings including my mother-in-law, would come to MI from Texas in the summer to do farm work. They had relatives who resided in the area. Shortly after the boys' accidental deaths, in August of 1948, their grandmother Fermina Almarez, who lived in Marshall also passed away and is buried at St. Mary's, too.

Any tips or direction you can give us on locating the gravesite would be appreciated.

Frank has an Aunt and I have the same Aunt,

We are not really related except by the aunt.laugh now, and my brothers used to pick on Frank in the playground.. not funny. And then someone who married a cousin of mine she used to do the same to me. And Frank is related to that cousin as well. Laugh a little harder now.
and Frank has this Geneaology bug and so do I.

Take care,

Since mine is a duplicate, let you switch out his wife to (My distant cousin)Franks submission, that # would be 13981804.... and then write me here to have me delete mine duplicate, please.... We need your help too.

Have a Great Weekend!

Take care,

Sorry for the slow reply but I don't really use my
gmail account except for sending Google Earth images to friends.

Would ordinarily not be doing genealogical research
except for purposes of locating places of residence
and additional verification of deaths.

Related -yes but not closely. Far off cousins
My 3rd gr grandmo was Elizabeth Ann Powell/James McIntosh. She is a sister to John Powell and Jane Woods parents of Timothy Powell/Mariah Fry --father to Homer. I was just connecting the family and you are probably right--a digit mishap. Thanks for the time. Rita

Wow, that is different. I have no idea where Alice A. (Hershey) Myers (1916-1996) came from or who she is. Thank you for your help. I just wanted to make sure I didn't have something wrong in my records. It must have been glich??

I've finally gotten back to updating my tree and memorials. I just noticed your tactful "duplicate" token on a memorial I created for the above person. Thank you for letting me know. The man who created the original has turned many family members over to me so I'm not surprised that he got there first! I will delete mine.

Permission to copy Tombstone
I'm so excited because of your posting on F-A-G I just located one of my husband's great Aunts. May we have your permission to copy the tombstone photo from Find A Grave into our family tree? Her name was Mettie May Nelson Imel and her husband James Madison Imel buried in Ford, County, Kansas. We will give you credit for the photo. Thank you so much for your work with F-A-G.
