you left a message about my memorial being a duplicate if you look at the dates mine was done in 2008 and the other was done in 2012. I think you should send a message and have the other person delete their entry as I spent days in this cemetery documenting every grave site there. :) If mine was done later than I would delete it but this is not the case.

Have a happy Holiday :)

John Tedoes
Hello! When you took the photo of John Tedoes' grave stone in Hillside Cemetery, Plainwell, MI, did you by any chance see a stone for his wife, Sarah? I am cataloguing the men of the 110th and try to include spouse's information too. Thank you for anything you may be able to provide. By the way, he died on August 12, 1905 in Gunplain, Allegan, MI. Best wishes, Natalie J. Woodall, PhD

Pvt Anson Hough
Hi Rich,

Ran across this 1st Michigan E & M soldier: Pvt Anson Hough; Find A Grave Memorial # 19049551. Didn't find him in your virtual, so thought we'd send the memorial along to you.

Grave memorial for Floyd Gillhespy
Mildred Edna McClain (maiden name) was the kids mother I've double checked she is on the 1930 censes and I also check the death certificates for Bobby and Louise and she is listed for both.

Thibos, John
Thank you Richard, am I to understand that the graves in this cemetery are all unmarked? If so, what a shame. It is nice to have the one plaque though. Thanks again, Cindy
