Well I felt it time to up grade my Profile here, after having a little better knowledge of working this site, and let ya all know of the project Ive started, I'm becoming totally amazed at the Information I find researching the Grave yards in my area.
To start I have begun the process of recording all three cemeteries in Almira Township, Benzie County, Michigan.
Greenbriar Cemetery
Lake Ann Cemetery
and West Almira Cemetery
When I was young I remember my Grandma "Velma Robinson Ryan" dragging me around to these cemeteries, and telling me of this relative and that relative, not really paying much attention, well now that I'm a lot older, and I wonder sometimes of being wiser, but such is the case I spent the better part of last summer going back through those cemetery's and going through the records at the Almira Township office, recording the people buried in the three cemeteries, and I'm in the process of putting what I have found , and finding on find a grave and creating a web site for all 3, Ounce I got started little did I know! and the more I wanted to know! so the process has started and I hope to have it done before my passing, so if your reading this and would like more Information on somebody I have posted I will be more the glad to help if I can

Frenches in defunct Washington Street Cem- In Painesville
Marc- Thank you for getting them online! At least this one's inscriptions (most, not all??) were recorded first (you entered them later?), plus, it disappeared for a decent reason (new high school).

Just a head's up on two changes outlined below, basedon findings in the old "Painesville Telegraph", parts now online courtesy of Judy Stebbins, which covered well Painesville deaths over the 1820s-1850s, and his hit-an-miss on surrounding towns.

TWO Mary Frenches died in Painesville, a toddler and her grandmother. The defunct cemetery listing had just ONE, the toddler Mary E.

I discovered her most famous relative Oratus Seba French in the Stebbins excerpts few years ago. After studying him at the Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential library, up in Fremont, Ohio, I finally put the graves of him and his older sister at Findagrave this week.

Double checking O.S.'s obituary, which mentioned his sister, I went back to the excerpts The toddler, Mary Eliza, little sister to Oratus Seba, and their grandmother, a Mary who went by Molly, died within a decade of each other. Separate death notices covered two other blood relatives buried with toddler Mary, she and O.S.'s father and grandfather, Warren and Seba French, who matched other info. The only mistake was that Judy or the original Telegraph mis-typed Grandma Mary's age as 37, when a Census recently completed showed that aged Mary to be 87.)

I've thus made two changes based on the Stebbins data affecting the defunct Cemetery you've so kindly built:

FIRST CHANGE, added that "Mary E French" meant Mary Eliza, daughter of Warren French of Painesville, now known to have died at 20 months and 10 days, earlier than previously thought. (In contrast, Grandma Mary never used an initial. The pioneer nickname of "Molly" separated her whenever other Mary Frenches were around to confuse things, with Molly used on her sons' birth records, Warren's in VT and Daniel Ide French's earlier in RI.)

Second change, since Stebbins documented Grandma Mary's death, she was added to Findagrave this week. She is TEMPORARILY put at your defunct cemetery (Washington Street in Painesville), so you can tell me what you think. Warning- We might all feel her grave should stay there (must also ask a Kristi Baker, who has been working on this family), that we all wish to treat it as her known grave, not having seen her grave anywhere else despite considerable looking. If not, then Findagrave rules for an unknown cemetery currently require making this Mary "bodyless", so listed as "body lost or destroyed".

The big problem created for the bodyless whose addresses were known, but not the specific cemetery-- Anyone thereafter entering that known address among their search criteria, say, by selecting Ohio, or "Lake County", will DEFINITELY NOT see this Mary in the results. Through a programming glitch not yet fixed, Findagrave search will zap her out of the results, even though her death address says Lake county, Ohio. (FindaGrave turns into LostaGrave for the bodyless whose death addresses are known).


Just my "thoughts so far"--any reaction?

I'm flexible. These are just "thoughts for now" I'll wait a couple of days, then will try to remember to contact contact Kristi.

Dear Marc,
Please do not put pictures of my relatives on find a grave without my permission. You took dozens of pictures from my public Ancestry tree and put them all over other sites. You are not related to me and I don't know why you would do this.
Benzonia Cemetery has been photographed and indexed for a few years now and the pictures even have the lot and sec number. The index is in the Benzonia Library. You didn't even take pictures of the headstones, just the caretakers building. Please take my relatives pictures off of Find A Grave or I will report you to the website as using unauthorized material.

BOY DO I NEED HELP!!!!
I looking for the resting place of Russell Ernest Webber, whose daughter knows where the cemetery is ...just not its name!!

To quote her..."Northeast of town past the Catholic Church not the one that is just before you get into town on the on the south" in Frankfort (Benzie co) MI.

Please can you tell me the name of the cemetery based on that information?

I only saw 2-3 cemteries list as being IN Frankfort. I don't want to just guess, and there are no telephone numbers to call on any of the cemeteries.

Thanks for listening, and hope you can help.
