Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Daughter of a Union Veteran of the Civil War. (DUVCW) My Great Great Grandfather, John Delong fought in the Civil War. I am unable to find his grave. He died in Spencerville, Ohio on June 17, 1895 at the age of 84. I volunteer at the Grand Rapids, Michigan Home for Veterans.

I am an United States Air Force Veteran.

Also I am the secretary for the Grand Rapids Civil War Round Table. And I am a director on our newly formed group, Friends of Michigan Veterans' Homes. We raise money for the little extras for our Vets in the Homes.

It is hard for me to pass a cemetery without stopping. Lucky for me, my husband has the same interests.

Please if you request a transfer, please use the EDIT key. Also send me your ID number.

Because of the NON-RESPONSES to my EDITS, after 10 days of waiting, I will delete them and add the information as a FLOWER.

Hildegarde Gladys Johnson Peterson is my husband's grandmother. I was wondering if you would consider transferring this memorial to me?
Sincerely, Karen Winters

RE: Hyland, John and Scherphorn
Thanks so much for the reply. We realized our errors later. Now, on another matter, we feel we owe you a letter of explanation. In the meantime, please just know when you so generously helped us with our “Grandma Scherphorn” Memorials at Fairplains, we appreciated all the wonderful work you did. At the time (many years ago) we didn’t understand how the Find-A-Grave system worked. If there is anything we need to do, please let us know.

RE: BOWSHER LINKS
Hi Beverly:

Thank you for your message regarding the "Edits" link at Find a Grave. I rarely look at my Bio page and was unaware of the 19 edits left on Bowshers over three days. Your email was the only one I received regarding recommended edits.
I have been through all this morning, & updated data on these sites.
