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: BARTHOLOMEW M CHAMPION
Beverly -

Annette Alva HAS removed the photo of Mr. Mack's headstone from Bartholomew Champion's memorial (60190876).

The problem is the *BIO*. On Bartholomew's memorial there is BIO information for Mr. Mack. Somehow, Leo Alva, Annette's husband, provided this info and it ended up on Bartolomew's memorial. Leo is very ill and Annette is handling matters the best she can now.

The Alva's DID try to remove the Mack BIO from Batholomew's memorial, but were unable to do so. Annette emailed me that the MEMORIAL CREATOR (DUVCW) of the memorial has control over the BIO and is the only person able to delete it.

You are the creator of Bartholomew's memorial. Please try to delete the BIO. Thanks

- David

RE: BARTHOLOMEW M CHAMPION
OK - Annette has removed the photo.

She tells me however that she and her husband are not able to delete the erroneous bio on Bartholomew's Find A Grave memorial (60190876) due to them not being the creator of the memorial. I am not sure of the process, but somehow Bartholomew has a bio that shows that he is the husband of one Josephine Mack, which is wrong. He is correctly linked to his actual wife, however. The bio says it was provided by Lionel Alva.

As Annette and her husband, who is very ill, are not able to delete Bartolomew's bio, could you please try? We are very close to having a perfect memorial for Bartholomew!

Sorry to be a bother.

My word! I thought I had already deleted mine! It is definitely deleted now along with Gena's. Very strange but problem is solved now, right?

By the way, thanks again for all that you do for our veterans!

I cited the reference so I back tracked but only the above was in the "paper".

RE: UNION HIGH
My Father, Kenneth Youngs (I think graduated in 1949) and his father Merrill Youngs (graduated around 1920) also graduated from Union High School. I spend 1969 in the old High School (West Middle) and then at the new Union HS in the fall of 1970.
