|Bio and Links|
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.

|Roy Delong||RE: Delong Family|
John Baldwin's material was based on the 100s of Delong/DeLong contributors and as you know some could be wrong or mistaken. It's impossible to double check everything you receive from others.
Regarding the spelling Delong/DeLong, being one I have relatives that switch back and forth, it drives me crazy. In most of John Baldwin's material he took the easy way out and didn't try to guess. He usually just omitted the surname. I befriended John many years ago and have his complete set of 11 Volumes of Delongs.
I was merely using the custom of spelling the surname as it appears on Jacob Cornelis & Mazuria (Bowsher) DeLong's tombstone (see photo at memorial). It is spelled DeLong or actually DeLONG (which means DeLong).

|Jana Marie Lashmit||RE: #30675815|
Oh how awesome!!!! Not sure if I can post a link on here for you to give her but I can email it if you'd prefer that way instead?

Would like to thank you for your promptness in entering the information I submitted for Joseph.

Thank you so much for adding the photo of my sisters tombstone. I have not been able to get back to the cemetery since her passing. The stone is beautiful as well as your photo. Thank you so much.

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
