|Bio and Links|
I am a reunited adult adoptee and my birth name was Anne Marie Weatherwax. I have been a professional writer for more than 50 years and a graphic artist since 1976. I am also one of the most involved Weatherwax family researchers in the United States. (The family just celebrated the tricentennial of its immigrant ancestor's arrival in 2010.) I have also extensive genealogical records for both the ancestors and descendants of Michael and Cornelia (VanNess) VanDerCook of NJ and NY. Additional families that I am researching include Francisco, Delamater, Vickery, Blood, Nichols, Kent and Hotovy.|

|Sandra Elizabeth Miller||RE: The Johnsons...closer than you know!|
That is very interesting information! Thank you for sharing it! I have put the information I have written about Cranberry on my Grandma Miller's Memorial page. She knew him very well, being about 20 when he died. Just click on Nellie Elizabeth (Johnson)Miller's name on Roe Johnson's Memorial page if you would like to read about Cranberry. He is something of a controversial figure in our family (I discuss this). For starters, we have good reason to believe that he was born in 1806, not 1811 as is given on his stone at Morrison, making him 104 years, 7 months old when he died He was very cagey about his age, seeing that his second wife, Cornelia Westfall (Spooner), was a great deal younger than he was. He is an authentic pioneer of Fabius Twp. His obituary said that he was still walking into Corey until three days before he died! Do read what I have written about him!
|Sandra Elizabeth Miller||RE: The Johnsons|
No - we are not related in any way that I know about to the Curtis family, but at Morrison we have other relatives: my great-great-grandparents, William Wallace "Cranberry"Johnson and wife Cornelia Westfall (Spooner) Johnson - and Christian W. Smith and wife Johannette (Kramb) Smith - and others related to them. The Johnson family has taken care of Morrison Cemetery for many years - first William Adelbert Johnson, my Grandma Miller's brother, and then (and presently) by Will's grandson, Gerald Johnson. Just recently I have become better organized in regard to this part of my family. Many members, particularly the Krambs (Johannette's family), are buried at Riverside in Three Rivers. Rebecca Drumm, who works very actively at that cemetery, has done a remarkable job there and we have been working together. I like to add as much information everywhere I can for others to use. That way we can advance our family histories rather than continue to plow the same ground repeatedly!!

Thank you so much for transferring my great-grandparents, Mary (Smith) and Roe Johnson, to me.

HAHAHAHA! Why do people do that to us when we are just trying to follow the bread crumbs to find the trail? Thanks!

Hi I saw that you added a story on Frederick J Sanderson (#122748823. I'm researching the Sanderson line and would like more information on him and his parents if you have any. Thanks. Ryan S.

Thank you so much!!

I don't mean to be a pest, but I sent you an edit request about 3 weeks ago wanting you to attach Jane with her mother, Anna Liken Dell (# 13673375). Would you be willing to go to your edit tab and approve my request?
|Doty||Frank V.and Ervilla Mae Vickery.|
I am the grandson(b.July 1950) of Frank&Ervilla Vickery. My mother is Marjorie Vickery-Doty,and father is John B.Doty. Marjorie,Frank Jr.,Lloyed and Edith are all deceased. Frank Sr.(my grandfather)was employed @ General Motors Inc. for many years while living in Pontiac,MI.He retired after WWII production@GM.stopped. He built a 2bdrm. home on Sharp St.(circa:late 1940s) in what was known as Bunny Run subdivision in Lake Orion,MI. Frank&Ervilla were grandparents to 16 known grandchildren of whom (4) are now deceased.You are correct that he was a jack of all trades,very wise and a great gardener.Even though he suffered w/Parkinsons Disease for many years,he planted a beautiful garden and loved to go fishing in Bunny Run Lake. I spent a couple weeks every summer at Grampa Franks,until sadly he suffered a fatal heart attack in 1962. Gramps smoked a pipe&when I remininisce,I can almost smell that cherry blend pipe tobacco.Thanks for posting his grave site.

|MjRich||104697640 Mary Eddy|
In Morrison cemetery in St Joseph co Michigan. You have document this Mary in 2013.
I been to the cemetery many times and there no stone. I check the burial records and there no Mary Eddy with those dates. The ones I have found are already document and are the daughters but again dates don't match.. I spoke with the sexton and he got back with me recently and he had no record of her being bury there.
Sincerely yours, MJ

|O Culver||Cornelius Francisco d. 1839 correction|
I would like to submit a correction to Find A Grave Memorial# 15928837.
I believe that the wife and children listed for this Cornelius Francisco actually belong to Cornelius Francisco, son of John Francisco (b. 1749 - d. 1832).
The children are all listed in the Petition for Probate for the will of John, indicating that they are his grandchildren.
This Cornelius, son of John, was b. 25 Mar 1782 (Schaghticoke R.D. Church record), died in Monroe County, NY in 1831, his estate administered by his brother, Francis Francisco, 15 Jul 1831.
The Ontario County Surrogate Court Records index that is online indicates there is an estate proceeding for Cornelius Francisco, d. 1839.
I am sure that these two probate records would easily straighten out the families of these two Cornelius Franciscos.
