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.

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,

I posted the death cert which indicates he is buried there. If you wish to correspond with me on this profile, please use the EDIT button so it will go to my email with the profile no. This does not belong on the message wall.

RE: Francis Wellington Baxter
Thank you for making this edit. I noticed in a previous message that you mentioned Francis was born in Canada...he was born in Woodville, Newaygo county, Michigan. Both WWI & WWII registrations of Francis designate Newaygo County as his birth place. His Michigan death certificate designate Woodville, Newaygo, Michigan as his place of birth.
One day I hope to get to Greenwood and see the gravesite of Francis and several other family members.
Thank you.

Francis Wellington Baxter
On 11/7/2016 I requested an edit for Francis Wellington Baxter to remove Joanne Moore Baxter as his mother. And, it was denied. I'm not sure why.
Joanne is not his mother...his mother died when he was very young and Joanne was his step-mother. I haven't found his biological mother's burial information yet but am working on it.
I am Joanne Moore Baxter's great granddaughter. I am sending another edit and hope you will approve it.
Thank You,
Sharon Neumann

RE: Thank You
I haven't really looked at that yet, but I find your name on alot of the family information that I am looking at. Here's my line:
Benjamin Bowsher and Elizabeth Delong
Leannah Bowsher and Levi Mowery
George Washington Mowery Sr and Charlotte Miller
Rhea Lorena Mowery and Gordon Gentle Burr
Marjorie Coleen Burr and Herbert Lewis Line
their only son was my dad Stephen Line.

So as you see I have the three families in the first two generations.

Thanks so much for your reply. It's appreciated. I've found another record of him alive after the death date on the head stone. He applied for his pension in October of 1890 so I'm still scratching my head on this one.
Thanks again,
