Though nothing pertains to what I research, I find the in-depth work that you do to be pertinent to the history of the Civil War and the State of Michigan. Thank you in sharing on Find a Grave the vast information you have accumulated. May those little nuggets continue to surface and be preserved for all to learn.

RE: photo request for Orville Shurtleff
You're VERY welcome!
I see that you had a photo of him and a newspaper article also. Did you know that you can keep them at 'the top' of his memorial...the first things you see when you open the memorial.
When you click on 'add a photo', the next window that opens says 'grave' in a small window. If you're adding a personal photo or news article, or can click on 'grave' and change it to 'person', 'family' or 'other'. If you choose person or family, I know that over-rides grave and leaves the photos at the top of the memorial. (Person or family trumps grave...smiling. That's how I remember.)
Try it! I really enjoyed reading the news article and seeing the photo! I'm sure others will too!

RE: Regina Odeimin Shaw
Funny story, I thought that name looked familiar and found the picture in my cemetery file. I had taken it in July of 2010.

Re: "Sy" Shananaquet
You seem to be the "turn-to" person, so I have a question that you may be able to answer. Sandra J. (Price) [Redmann] #38162448 was married to "Sy" Shananaquet at one time. Do you know "Sy"'s actual first name, or anything about him? Thanks for any information you send my way.

RE: Samuels/Animkwam
Aww thanks...

Am having a blast. As you can see I am here again lol...

I am actually very interested in the Native Americans in our area now and want to learn more and possibly find out about the different surnames.

Any pointers for me?

Hi Scott...

Sorry to bombard you but I just now am on Joseph Samuels memorial #9315322.

Because of the info I came across on the Joseph Animikwam #9315320 I had wondered if maybe this Joseph Samuel may actually have the surname Animikwam.

Then I got to looking at the dates on these 2 memorials. They are the same.

Thought maybe you'd want to know this information. I am guessing this is the same person?

RE: Louisa Osawanimike # 9315325
Hi Scott...

Thank you for the info and reply.

I have some info on a few memorials I found that you may be interested in. The info is in the flowers I left.

#9315340 Victoria Francis...

#9315280 Ronald Andrews. Andrews was a tricky one. Found the actual surname is Assinaway.

Another thing I found that was quite interesting I want to ask you. Have you heard of any tribal members adding the grandfathers name in as a 3rd given name? I came across this on one family. You can read more on this memorial #9315320.

Looking forward to hearing back from you soon....

Louisa Osawanimike # 9315325

Curious if you have information on this family. I see her mother's name is Sophia, father Louis. Sophia's mother's surname is Osawanimike. It list's Sophia's married name as Bigfoot on her death record, which is in the Emmet County and Greenwood records and she is buried in Harbor. Could this be Louisa's mother?

Thank you,

RE: Uncle Les
Scott, thanks so much for the transfer. Wonder if you know my husband Jack? Les was his Uncle but only 1 year apart so more like brothers. Don't know of anyone who didn't like Les. He was a special person. Always laughing. Thanks again, Barb

Charles Henry Moss
In April I went on the "Find a Grave" site and found the following cemetery:


Also known as Lake View Cemetery?

I found a headstone for a young boy named

MOSS, CHARLES HENRY Buried 7/17/1905 13 years, 11 months and 16 days.

I believe he was the older brother to my Grandfather, Thomas James Moss. I have been checking the Federal Census forms, and a death certificate.

Now, I can't even find him on the site.
Have you been to this cemetery recently, and do you recall a headstone for Charles Henry Moss. I don't understand how it could just 'disappear'. Unless, someone removed the headstone from their account?

If you live near this cemetery, any light you can shed on this mystery would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Identification of Indian Bill Pe-na-se-wa-ge-schick
Ahnee Kokopelli You were blessed to be related to Marcus Otto that I have found in the newspaper up here in Mount Pleasant. They were incidents related with alcohol - I have them. I believe Mr. Otto drank to combat with his Post stress traumatic disorder as well as combating with the phantom type disorder relating to the loss of a limb such as a arm or leg. Anyway I write because I believe Indian Bill record should be cleared up on the online vital stats for the Isabella twp.
What do you think?
Could I mention about Indian Bill to the Ziibiwing Culture Center up here maybe they would be interested in this story of what I found.
Also I have found another individual Samuel who was born on May 28th, 1865 and died on Jan 11, 1916 was Samuel Goodwin, married, white, age 50, died in Isablla Twp. a farmer who had Pneumonia and his parents were Richard Goodwin and Susan Glarnet? Please let me know what you think of what I found. Ruby.
