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.

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,

I am not sure that you have the right person. I don't believe I have a photo of this grave.
I stand to be corrected if I have made a mistake

Grace B Drayton #65999519
I noticed you have named a husband Donald Drayton as the husband of Grace. I am working on my tree & I wondered where you were able to find her husband. I thought perhaps her husband was William Burley Drayton # 65999550 that is in the same cemetery as Grace. Any information you can pass along would be greatly appreciated!

Richard Hill and Family in Canada
I have noticed you added several memorials for my great great grandfather's family - Richard Hill (memorial id:50171380)

Are you related to the family, just wondering how you obtained this information.

Thank you,

Thomas is on the tombstone with his wife Albin Mills in Siloam, Macon Co. TN. Research indicates he is actually buried at New Hope Cemetery, Coffee Co. GA. The memorial there is #48052042.
