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 maintain the Cemetery records and make sure the tombstones get ordered and placed at the burial site in a timely manner.

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.

On Willis's memorial there is a note that says 'not a member.' What does that mean?

RE: SUE A WILSON
Thanks, Somehow missed that. Yea, that Robot thing is a pain in the tush! I got a notice tonight saying I'd submitted a lot of edits and had to prove I wasn't a robot.

Hope you're well and keeping warm.

RE: Spencerville Cemetery
Hi again
Charlotte was born about 1810 and I believe she died between 1870 and 1880,she lived in Shelby County,Ohio. She had two daughters that lived in Spencerville,but both moved away. The 1870 census shows a Charlotte Meyers living in Spencerville, but I'm not certain it is her also I have found a death index from Spencerville for a Fredrick Myers which was her husbands name. None of this is conclusive by far; I'm trying to do a process of elimination before I start walking the cemeteries.
Thanks for your help.

Spencerville Cemetery
Hi
I see you have done a number of memorials for the Spencerville Cemetery in Allen County,Ohio. My question is, are there interment records and or maps of this cemetery? I'm trying to locate a Charlotte Myer(Meyers, Meirs,... the spelling is in doubt).Thank you for any help you can provide.

RE: MILDRED JACKSON-DUP
Thanks for responding. Sorry, I saw both Mildred's were buried in Fairplains Cemetery, but didn't notice one in Grand Rapids and one in Sparta. Leave yours memorial and I will send the other contributer an email to check with him since you have a gravestone photo. What's odd is the other contributer is "Warren Jackson". His memorial was created after Mildred's husband, Warren Jackson, died.

Thanks again,
Brian
