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.

I've completed research on Sarinda and John Lounsberry. It's possible that John is in my blood line but I am unable to connect him with my Lounsberry family at this time.

Could you please add the information below to Sarinda's (50331190) bio. It will help everyone who is researching this family.

Thanks much,
Kathy Lutzke

OBIT: Mrs. Lounsberry died at the residence of her son on Tuesday where she has been suffering for a long time, and death was a relief. The funeral services were conducted on Sunday by the Rev. Mr. Reid. She leaves three daughters and one son to mourn her loss, who have the sympathy of the community. Mrs. Lounsberry was 62.

I called the cemetery some time ago and they did not have any information on them with the info from the memorials for each.

Did you physically walk thru the cemetery?

My g-g grandparents are John and Sarah Lounsberry. I have completed extensive research and cannot locate the data you have provided in their memorials.

I sure appreciate how you obtained this info.

Thanks again

Thanks for your response.

Do you have supporting documents that reflect this info? If not, how did you arrive at the dates of birth/death?

Viewing both memorials on John and his wife. Do you have any supporting documents about their dates of birth, etc.

I believe this information could be incorrect. Refer to her memorial 50331190.

Appreciate your response.

Good Day,

I am researching my father's mother's side and i was wondering if anyone here knew the names of parents of my great grandmother Mary A Williams
she is buried in Ontario canada at the Luton Cemetery, I was wondering if anyone knew any family history on this name Williams.

Yes it is definitely the same person. I try to document all spouses in my file and their spouses. This group of people was a nightmare. I probably missed some, but...Gwyndolyn married
Leo Chandler Matson 7/6/1923 then married
Forest Daniel Yarger 11/7/1937; Forest had married
Daisy Florence Elsea 10/18/1919 who had married
Frank Guy Windle 11/13/1915 who later married
Audrey P Hazelton 12/6/1933. I find no further marriages for Audrey.
Gwyndolyn lastly married James Cecil Bowersock. James first wife was Pearl Catherine Ordway. After their divorce Pearl married
Lynn Frank Lamb 7/27/1928 who later married
Coral Bernet Knox 12/5/1947. Pearl also married
Harold J Strable. (I think he had a prior wife).
James Bowersock's daughter Gloria, has Violet Martha Rice identified as her mother, but I cannot find anything further on Violet. It is possible James and Violet never married. If you would like additional information on Gwyndolyn please email me and I will be happy to share everything I have on her and her family. Thank you for updating her memorial.
