Bio and Links
Bio Photo I started Genealogy a couple of years ago when my Grammy Beverly Grzywa started telling me stories and showing me pictures of her parents Clara and Leon Lukaszewski who was a pharmacist and owned L.S. Lukaszewski Drugs in Detroit MI, my papa Daniel Grzywa who was also a pharmacist and owned Trancick's pharmacy in Detroit MI, and other family members who were very close to her heart. My Grandma Betty Jane Pletcher also sparked my interest for genealogy by telling me how her father John Gonsey came to the US from Hungary, and got a job with twin pines Dairy as a milk man for the entire down river Detroit area. She also showed me pictures and told me stories of her husband Forrest Pletcher who was born in Pennsylvania, and was a child of a broken home. Knowing he had to support his mother and siblings, he dropped out of school in the eighth grade and moved to Detroit and got a job as a carpenter and how their son Charles now offers a scholarship every year to carpenter students every year in my grandpa's name.

I started with researching my main family lines, but my research kept growing and growing. The main families I am researching are... Pletcher- Somerset Co. Pa, Grzywa, Detroit MI and Poland. Gonczy/ Gonsey Detroit MI and Hungary,and Lukaszewski Chicago IL., and Poland.
If you need info. on any of these names I will be glad to share that with you.

Also I have made a virtual cemetery for memorials I have either created or visited that I thought could use an extra flower, I named it Angels in Need of Flowers If you know of a person's memorial that should be added to this list please let me know.

I will gladly transfer management of any of my memorials to you only if you are a direct descendant of that person, and that person is not a direct descendant of me.

Feel free to use any of the info, and pics. I upload to find a grave for your own genealogy reasons.

CORRECTIONS: Please use the correction tab for any and all corrections this sends me an email with a link to the person you are needing a correction for. I will try to correct the problem within 24 hours.

If you need any other information on any of the names I am researching please visit my family Tree. The link to it is listed below under Website.


Ancestors of so long ago,
I'll search until I find.

Till I can prove and clearly show,
that you are truly mine.

I'll follow behind your trail of tears,
the hidden footprints of time.

Covered and buried throughout the years,
and continue each mountain to climb.

I'll search every faraway seaside shore,
and every valley below.

I'll unlock each and every door,
as my own teardrops flow.

I'll unearth the buried History of you,
and your own Ancestral kin,

I'll search for that all important clue,
and open my heart to let you in.

Hi Daniel,

This one is my husband's grandfather. I have his death certificates one from Lansing and one from Pontiac,Michigan. No cemetery is listed on either one.
Hugh Morehead B-12-25-1845 Ireland
D-9-5-1923 Pontiac, Mich.
Amanda Hoard Morehead
That is all the info I have Amanda. They have three or four lots in Crooks Rd Cemetery in Troy but no one is buried there.

I have some other family members but will send them later on. Take care. Vivian

Here is another one: Delia White
B-1877 Ireland
Delia was listed on the 1910 New Jersey census
New Brunswick Ward 6,
She was married to Michael White and they had two daughters. In July of 1914 Michael left N.J. and went to live in Kitchner, Ont. He remarried in 1915. When he died Delia was not mentioned in the obit just his present wife and family.He also used the family name of Bialkowski. I believe he is buried in Mt. Hope Cemetery in Kitchner. Thank you,Take care. Vivian

Good evening Daniel:You said that you do different States and Country's.

I have one in Canada:
Wm.Stephen Taylor B-26 Aug.1881-Bolton,Eng.
D-12 July 1967 Vancouver,BC
Frank Douglas Eilliott B-1938 Vancouver,BC
D-11 July 1967 Vancouver
Wm. and Frank were related through marriage.
Canada does not list anything on the death certificates of how they died, where there are buried. I found them on the BC.Death Index and my friends who researhing sent for the cert.nothing is listed and they charged an arm and a leg. They died so close together I thought maybe they were in a car accident. The newspapers charge about $75.00 to look it up to see if there was a obit. He was listed as Stephen William Taylor on the index. I have a couple more that I cant find. Will send another message. Take care. Vivian

Dear Daniel: Thank you so much for posting all the names I gave you....but I have no idea how to edit anything. How did you get some of the info.? I dont know how to edit anything. This is all "Greek" to me. Do you do other cemeteries or just St.Hedwigs?
I know very little about "Find a Grave" who does what. I noticed you put my name as mainting the site....I have no idea what that means. I hope I didnt hurt your feelings. I have a friend in Canada who does Find a Grave, he is doing a Cemetery in Kitchner, Ont. He travels all the world. I tried getting on your email, but I couldnt get through. Thank you again for all the trouble you have gone through to put my family names on Find A Grave.You dont know how much I appreciate it.Take care. Hope to hear from you soon. Vivian
