Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Daughter of a Union Veteran of the Civil War. (DUVCW) My Great Great Grandfather, John Delong fought in the Civil War. I am unable to find his grave. He died in Spencerville, Ohio on June 17, 1895 at the age of 84. I volunteer at the Grand Rapids, Michigan Home for Veterans.

I am an United States Air Force Veteran.

Also I am the secretary for the Grand Rapids Civil War Round Table. And I am a director on our newly formed group, Friends of Michigan Veterans' Homes. We raise money for the little extras for our Vets in the Homes.

It is hard for me to pass a cemetery without stopping. Lucky for me, my husband has the same interests.

Please if you request a transfer, please use the EDIT key. Also send me your ID number.

RE: Mary Reichelderfer Delong Weaver
No problem. I get to working on my grandpa's side of the family and I have to be really careful about duplicating people. I have to take breaks, think I'm losing my mind when I work with the Bowshers and the Reichelder's. I see your work all over. You have done some real nice work. Thanks Jan

Pvt John Meyers 16084022
Hello and thank you for posting Pvt John Meyers in the Grand Rapids Veterans Home Cemetery. I am researching a John W. Meyers born 1806 in Canada. I found him in the 1880 census living with his wife Charlotte Kenter. Charlotte died in 1899 as a widow so assume that John died after 1880 and before 1899. Charlotte's daughter from a first marriage is also buried in Grand Rapids with her son. Perhaps that is why this John Meyers was in the Veterans Home? Anyway to identify Pvt John Meyers any further? Would the Veterans Home have more information? Thank you. Lora Treadwell

I am seeing a lot of these and with these Irish names it is hard to tell which one you are memorializing. I would like to make St. Andrews Cemetery complete on Find A Grave but I do not want to create duplicates and get people all over me.

What are your thoughts?

I talked with my friend at the City Cemetery today and she has put in a call to her maintenance crew to raise Thomas' stone. Expect this to be accomplished within a couple weeks.
