RE: Sondra Schwander and Barbara High
Your welcome. What a beautiful marker and wonderful that this child has not been forgotten.

I looked all over for the marker for Barbara but could not find it. I did go to the office and it is in Section U so I know it is somewhere near the picture.

Petoskey History 1852-2002
RE: Bill Peters
Hello! What a wonderful surprise! It is amazing all that you discovered! I am happy to do as you suggest and will send you the photo I have of Bill. I have been looking for the past hour and can’t locate it, but I know I have it! In the meantime I am sending by email the photo of him I used in one of my family newsletters. The original is of good quality and I will take to my printer to have a jpeg copy of it for you.
I will keep looking. I came across it just a couple of weeks ago and know it is here somewhere. It is in black and white but it is an original and of excellent quality. Let me know you received it. Thank you so very much!

Bill Peters
Hello. I am trying to locate a friend of the family. His name is Bill Peters. My grandpa and he worked together and became friends in Detroit in the 1930s. After grandpa moved to Petoskey he unexpectedly saw Bill dancing at a pageant on the bluff in Harbor Springs (he wore a Native American Ceremonial Costume. I have a picture post card of him.
Bill and grandpa remained friends for many years. I believe the last time they saw each other was probably in the 1970s when Bill stayed with my parents on Petoskey Street for a week or so. I think he was becoming frail at that time.
I am thinking it could be possible his wife is Rose Peters (you have created a memorial for her). Would you have any clues on how I could find Bill? Thank you for you time and consideration.

RE: Delia versus Ella
Hi, thanks for responding so quickly. The discrepancy is Clarence’s mother. Delia Jessie (Hall) Manitowash is his correct mother, sometimes listed as Della. Delia was married to John Manitowash, son of John Wing Manitowash
Clarence J. Manitowash #81829357 was John and Delia's son. You have listed Ella Hall as his mother and Joseph as his father.
Ella was married to: Joesph Hall # 63586753

Ella Hall #63586746
Delia Jessie Hall Manitowash #148055644

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!

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.

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,
