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.

John Wesley Ross
John Wesley Ross died in Saginaw Co., Michigan. I have added his death record to his memorial # 79397187. Could you correct your information about his place of death?

William A. Wilson
Hello; First I would like to thank you for your service to your country and for all you do for Find A Grave and Veterans. William A. Wilson is my great grandfather's younger brother. I am decended from Andrew J. I have sent through additional info on William's full birth date. Also I have been trying to find out information on Williams first wife. He was married after his discharge from the Union Army and within 18 months of this marriage, lost his wife and child to illness. Unfortunately I can find nothing indicating the names for this wife and child. I have a copy of a letter he wrote to the Alumni Association of his medical school and he doesn't even state their names. I assume they are buried in New York as he didn't move to Michigan until the 1880's. Also, I know it is outside of the transfer rules but would you considering transferring his memorial to me.

Hello there. I wanted to know if it was okay to repost the photo you took on to his wife's memorial? I see you say it's okay to post on ancestry but wanted to make sure it was okay to repost here on Findagrave. I will make sure and give you credit as the photographer. Cheers!

RE: Edwin Nicholson memorial # 75579608
Thank you so much for your work on these memorials. The three people listed under "Micholson" on the GR cemetery website are all "Nicholson" family members buried in the same Lot...and all related to me:

Name Date of Death
Micholson, Bertha 03/18/1937
Micholson, Edwin 04/19/1928
Micholson, William 04/15/1918

I don't think I would have found them without your assistance. Thanks. And thanks for transferring Edwin's memorial to me. I appreciate it.

Edwin Nicholson memorial # 75579608

Was wondering if you can share with me how you located the burial spot for Edwin Nicholson in Fairplains Cemetery, Grand Rapids, Kent County, Michigan, USA, Plot: Block B, Lot 65, Space 5?

Your memorial states no headstone could be located, and it is not listed in the Grand Rapids Cemetery electronic lists, so I was wondering if there is a transcription listing that I can check somewhere to see if his wife, Catherine Almira Dole, is also buried there.

Thank You,
