Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you so much to the volunteers who not only list the information but also provide a photograph of the stones.

I'm 12th Generation American, directly decended from Thomas Chaffee (1635) and as such the Chaffee's and allied families are my interest.

The faq's are an amazing repository of information for FAG. You'll also learn a lot from the forums as well.

Do Not request transfers/corrections here they will be deleted. Please use the SAC feature by clicking the edit tab on the memorial needing correction.

To add an internal link in the biography, you would need to type
< a href="">Name< /a>
(I put this here because I use it frequently and am tired of digging for it in the FAQ.)

Thanks to DaurRegt (#47891223) for the idea on putting the link on the profile.

RE: Lydia Stark
What is strange, I Just searched with last names of Lydia Fischer(Fisher) and Lydia Shank and came up with records for both Samuel and the kids for both Lydias. Oh well, I'll leave it alone for now.

Lydia Shank Stark
Lydia Shank Stark Find A Grave Memorial# 59635161- I have her maiden name as Fischer in my tree. Where did you get her maiden name as Shank from? Lydia Fischer is the name listed on her children's death certificates.

Joyce’s mother was Floy Mae Ackler (Bird & Ames), Find a Grave # 110284353. Joyce’s father was Walter D Ames Find a Grave # 64908270.

Iona & Walter were living together/married before 1947.

Floy & Walter were married in 1927 Citation: 1930 Census. They were married 1927 to abt 1946/7. They had 3 children.

Do you have any more information?

Floy Chaffee Blackman
I had thought Floy was female, the daughter of William Harrisons Chaffee and Lucy M. (Johnson) Chaffee with husband Ivon Blackman. Is this the same Floy you were interested in? Thanks. Love - Kathy

Barkway Pioneer Cemetery
I just finished uploading the photo's I took of this cemetery last summer. You have most of the memorials for those buried here.
I have located an interment transcript for the cemetery and will include the link in this email. If you wish to update your memorials there is a lot of information listed. It is too much to be sent as edits.
Thanks for entering the memorials, it saved me quite a bit of time when uploading!!

The cemetery link is:

Samuel Hubbard grave in Holden Cemetery Livingston michigan
I was wondering if anymore info for this Samuel Hubbard is available. The marker only says his name.
My mother and I are from Milford Michigan area and have been searching for our Samuel Hubbard forever.

Originally he was buried in what they called the“old burying ground” begun on the corner of Mill and
Washington streets in 1832 in Milford Michigan. All remains were to be transferred to the new cemetery Oak Grove Cemetery in Milford. He never made it! Can not find any info of where they may have transferred him (until hopefully now)!
He arrived with his family from NY and died shortly after arriving.
Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Sincerely Linda

I was wondering if you'd like to transfer this grave to me. It is my husbands grandfather and I have a lot of information to add along with an obit.

If hes not part of your family line, I'd like to care for it.

Thank you so very much.
