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.

Good Day,

I am researching my father's mother's side and i was wondering if anyone here knew the names of parents of my great grandmother Mary A Williams
she is buried in Ontario canada at the Luton Cemetery, I was wondering if anyone knew any family history on this name Williams.

Gwyndolyn Bowsher Matson Yarger Bowersock
Yes it is definitely the same person. I try to document all spouses in my file and their spouses. This group of people was a nightmare. I probably missed some, but...Gwyndolyn married
Leo Chandler Matson 7/6/1923 then married
Forest Daniel Yarger 11/7/1937; Forest had married
Daisy Florence Elsea 10/18/1919 who had married
Frank Guy Windle 11/13/1915 who later married
Audrey P Hazelton 12/6/1933. I find no further marriages for Audrey.
Gwyndolyn lastly married James Cecil Bowersock. James first wife was Pearl Catherine Ordway. After their divorce Pearl married
Lynn Frank Lamb 7/27/1928 who later married
Coral Bernet Knox 12/5/1947. Pearl also married
Harold J Strable. (I think he had a prior wife).
James Bowersock's daughter Gloria, has Violet Martha Rice identified as her mother, but I cannot find anything further on Violet. It is possible James and Violet never married. If you would like additional information on Gwyndolyn please email me and I will be happy to share everything I have on her and her family. Thank you for updating her memorial.

In the bio section, you have written the cause of death "suicide - gunshot to the heart". I was wondering what your source is for this information. Thanks

Hello Beverly,

You are most welcome! I have deleted my memorial in deference to your earlier 'Find A Grave' memorial to your classmate. The grave number should be 4B, not '48'. I know with my own family that this designation means that cremains were buried on an existing grave.

The reference to civil war service is still there (Find A Grave Memorial# 84132061 - b. 1852, not old enough to have served in civil war).

The Dougald J MacNaughton who DID serve in Co K of the NY Lincoln Cavalry was Find A Grave Memorial #93343226)

Thanks for your diligence.

Hauschild graves
Thank you for trying to find the Hauschild graves in Fairplains Cemetery. I do appreciate the effort, despite the fact they do not wish to be discovered. The data in the entries is from someone else and I have no further knowledge about their burial. Perhaps they will turn up someday.

Hi, Beverly. I'm sure you mean George Rozema. I spent a year on tracing the 15 Rozema siblings. Using Facebook, I was able to make contact with every surviving family line and obtain all those great pics. George was my grandmother Marie's brother. The Ebels memorial(s) changes from me are tied to Peter Ebels, who married their sister Sadie. Thank you for all your work! - Doug

Fred, Sr. was in the Army, and his son (same name) was in the Navy. I corrected the error. Thank you.
