Bio and Links
Bio Photo HI, I have been researching my Genealogy since July of 2000. I really enjoy visting Cemeteries and takeing pictures. Headstones are so awesome, they come in all different shape, sizes, Colors, and the engravings express how someone was feeling at the time this person died. I believe you can some what see what kind of a person was by their headstone. And sometime a headstone is all that is left on this earth. I live in Allegan, Michigan

Millard F. Jewell #48003401
I like to read the old newspapers at the Library of Congress website and today, I ran across the wedding announcement for Millard Jewell and Ellen Rolison in the Belding Banner (Belding, MI) of 11/29/1916. I believe this might be the Ella Wilson in the memorial. I am attaching a link. I thought you might like to see the article.

Thank you for photographing and adding the stone for Doyle (Tom). I didn't know Betty, his wife had passed, so that is new information for me. Tom was my first cousin, although we hadn't kept in touch for quite a few years. He was a favorite when growing up.

Doing research on his wife Mary Catherine Beard Manes. Was wondering if you are related to John Manes?

The records (http://www.lib.rochester.edu/IN/RBSCP/Databases/IMAGES/MtHope/disc2/00000951.pdf) show that she was interred on June 16, 1948. [And, for what it's worth, her given age at death would suggest she was born in 1863.]

Re: Photo request for George Peak at Mt Hope Cemetery, Rochester, NY
You didn't have a death date for him...and a survey of this section of the cemetery (http://mcnygenealogy.com/cem/mthope-range-6b.htm) suggests that his gravestone doesn't have one either, but according to the Mt Hope Interment Records (http://www.lib.rochester.edu/IN/RBSCP/Databases/IMAGES/MtHope/disc2/00001087.pdf), he was interred on October 7, 1938 (which is usually a few days after death).

There are different opinions as to birth year. You have 1870 on the memorial but, according to the survey, the gravestone says 1871. If the age at death in the interment records is to be believed, he was born in 1875.

At any rate, it should be straightforward for I or another volunteer to get a photo of the gravestone.

Hi Ken,

The age: 30 was on the cemetery records. Don't know if this is correct because they are not always. If his dates are correct he would of been 79 yrs.
