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.

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 cant 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 Clarences 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
