Bio and Links
Bio Photo We are the Dexter Trail Questers. We are a group of ladies interested in history and historical things. We have adopted as our current "project" the logging, verifying and photographing of each gravestone in Fairview Cemetery, Dansville MI. All visible stones in Fairview Cemetery as of July 2013 have been photographed. We are a very cooperative organization so any time a "family member" seeks a memorial they are interested in maintaining but "owned" by DT Quester, please, notify us and we will be happy to transfer ownership. Also, we are looking for family stories of the people buried in Fairview so if there are any out there floating around in cyberspace, please pass them onto us! We have gotten an "historical" designation to the cemetery and had a great dedication ceremony Oct. 3, 2010.

We are now working on getting records and photos for other cemeteries in the Dansville, Williamston, White Oak, and Stockbridge areas.

NOTE: Our organization is now cleaning markers and resetting some "tablet" markers-depending on damage. For more information, please email us.

DO NOT email us for any memorial requests, use edit tab ONLY.

Also please include your FAG membership number.

It provides a link to the memorial, making quick and smooth transactions. Thank you.

RE: Entirely wrong William
Thanks. Please change my William's name to William Hills, not William S. Hills, unless you have documents that show the middle initial. I have never encountered a middle initial. I have not figured how to make the correction on my Marria's page. I have asked FindaGrave to make a change.

From what you say, your saw a record from the cemetery of a purchase of two graves: one for Marria in which she was interred and one for William, which must be empty, and that is how you arrived at your posting?

I can certainly appreciate the difficulty of what you are doing and I do appreciate all of your hard work. Thank you very much.

Entirely wrong William
Please see 65688329

My gGrandfather William Hills whom you describe as buried in Fairview Cemetery is buried in Mt. Hope Cemetery in Ingham County. Please see Memorial #23355169

The information you post for the Danville William is correct for my William. My William is not the William you write about at Fairview in Dansville. I do not know who that William may have been.

My William's first wife and my gGrandmother, Maria Eldred Hills, is buried in Dansville. My William married a second time to a Sylvia and she is also buried in Mt. Hope.

Please correct your 65688329

I wonder if my William bought a lot for the burial of Maria and himself and is so listed in the cemetery records, but then after remarriage was not buried in that lot. Then you saw the record of purchase????

Thanks, Dick Hills

Thank you for transferring. Fathers can be clicked 7 generations thru MI, NY & CT to Jabez Harger who came over from England. Have been connecting as many memorials as possible. Lots of dupes & non cemetery to fix.

RE: Woods
Newton Bakewell Woods, son of David Morgan Woods and Elizabeth Bakewell, married Sybil Elnora Sargent Hopkins, 20 Feb 1919 in Lansing, Ingham County, Michigan. They had three children, Rex, Hazen, and Nina. Hazen is also buried in North Stockbridge.

Hazen J. Woods was born 12 Sep 1922 in Stockbridge and died 08 Aug 1934 also in Stockbridge. I believe the other children are buried elsewhere.

RE: Mary E. Rix
Thank you for posting the info to findagrave that you have located! Cabot Cemetery is a neat old cemetery -- and it's too bad all the old records were destroyed (by a house fire).

Missing children of Theodore Dietz and Mary Elizabeth (Rix) Dietz are: Arthur Dietz (13 July 1872, Leroy Township, Ingham County, Michigan, died 23 May 1949 in Alma, Gratiot County, Michigan; married Mary Ethel Wilcox 27 October 1906, Mancelona, Antrim County, Michigan.

There was also a son, who was born and died 13 February 1876, Leroy, Ingham County, Michigan.

Rockwell Dietz, b 23 August 1877, Leroy Township, Ingham County, Michigan; married 1905 in Williamston, Ingham County, Michigan to Lulu Belle Carpenter (b 1880); died 26 July 1923, Wheatfield Township, Ingham County, Michigan.

Henry William Dietz, b 22 January 1879, Leroy Twp, Ingham Co, Michigan; married Florence Maude Craddock and Nellie Amelia Monroe; died 31 March 1951, Village of Webberville, Ingham Co, Michigan.

Robert Dietz, b 2 March 1881 in Leroy Twp, Ingham Co, Michigan; married 29 November 1904 in Leroy Twp, Ingham Co, Michigan, Grace Elizabeth Brenner; died 28 June 1852, Ingham County, Michigan.

As you said, you may have these children but they may not be linked. Again, thanks for all you have done to get this information posted on the Web. Susan

I tried to find this baby that I know is buried in Hawley Cemetery. I don't know dates; but, have seen the grave a few years ago. Parents are Albert and Margaret Newman; and, she died 60ish years ago. I just thought that her grave would be recorded on here; but, not finding it. Can you direct me to find out how to find out about this?
