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.

Mae Boven
Hi, just wondering if you are related to Mae Boven? She was my husband's great grandmother. Her maiden name was Gilfillin and her first husband's name was Harry Paul Stevens. They had two children, Maurice and Pearl. Her grandson is my father-in-law and he is still living.

RE: Thomasma headstone
It's for Violet Thomasma 73084341 and LJ Lewis. I see the photo there too, and that is correct. You could remove it from her father's memorial 82146929.
Thank you!

I've completed research on Sarinda and John Lounsberry. It's possible that John is in my blood line but I am unable to connect him with my Lounsberry family at this time.

Could you please add the information below to Sarinda's (50331190) bio. It will help everyone who is researching this family.

Thanks much,
Kathy Lutzke

OBIT: Mrs. Lounsberry died at the residence of her son on Tuesday where she has been suffering for a long time, and death was a relief. The funeral services were conducted on Sunday by the Rev. Mr. Reid. She leaves three daughters and one son to mourn her loss, who have the sympathy of the community. Mrs. Lounsberry was 62.

I called the cemetery some time ago and they did not have any information on them with the info from the memorials for each.

Did you physically walk thru the cemetery?

My g-g grandparents are John and Sarah Lounsberry. I have completed extensive research and cannot locate the data you have provided in their memorials.

I sure appreciate how you obtained this info.

Thanks again

Thanks for your response.

Do you have supporting documents that reflect this info? If not, how did you arrive at the dates of birth/death?

Viewing both memorials on John and his wife. Do you have any supporting documents about their dates of birth, etc.

I believe this information could be incorrect. Refer to her memorial 50331190.

Appreciate your response.
