I live in Michigan. My husband is originally from Maine. Every time we visit his family I try to take pics of family graves when I come across any. His family is relatively small so I enjoy trying to trace everyone to one another. My family, on the other hand, is extremely large and I have yet to build the energy it will take to track all of my ancestors down...lol!
Retan and infant My name is Ruby MeShawboose. I do research on cemeteries and Indian boarding schools. I am writing in regards to this young lady and her infant child. The information is this Her name is Rosa (Allen) Rettan. Her death certificate is #122 and the infant's death certificate is 123. She died on 10.14.1884 two days after giving birth to the baby. She was 28 years old and buried with the baby in Woodland Cemetery in Rosebush, Michigan. Rosa was married, a housekeeper and her parents were Benjamin B. Allen and Anna Allen. Her record was added on May 27th, 2011 the Find A Grave memorial #70453882. I found this information which has these small discripencies on Find A Grave and online vital statistics for Isabella County. I needed to share this information about Rosa (Allen) Rettan. Thanks.
1910 Census: Frank, Charlotte, Earl, Martha, Norma 1920 Census: Frank, Charlotte, Earl, Martha, Norma, Lloyd 1930 Census (Frank died in 1924): Charlotte, Norma, Lloyd, Eugene, AND Charles White (lodger)
Suggests Lottie White was indeed Charlotte who married Frank first and then possibly Charles...
I will continue to look and ask the local historian;) Betty
Hutchinson Family in Cherry Grove If you are a relative, would you take the time to check out the Frank E. Hutchinson 133269620 I just added to Cherry Grove? I'm not a relative but have added a number of cherry Grove interments on to findagrave. My Frank's obit said he was married to Charlotte. Could this be your Lottie who married after your Frank? Could your Frank and mine be the same person? After looking at the death record for Frank E. Hutchinson on familysearch, I really became confused. Betty
James Daly Are you by any chance related to James Daly? I saw that you had a death cert for him. Do you have one for his wife also? I think that she could be related to the Johnston family that I want to link her to, but need to verify her parents. Thanks.
Warren Parsell Warren W. Parsell was my great-great grandfather. His son was Warren Parsell...Warren Parsell was the father of Florence Parsell (Haase)...Florence Parsell (Haase) was the mother of Gerald Haase...who was my father. So, I guess you or your husband are related to me. I have some photos of the Parsells you might be interested in. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
