RE:Bertha Breithaupt
Appreciate it. Bertha is with her father and stepmother,not her husband._Assumed too much,my grandmother had not talked to these people since before we moved to Traverse City in 1963.We knew the names but never knew where they ended up.Bertha's mother is an unknown (Anna).She is at Isadore somewhere, odd because Anna's dad owned the property before donating the land to the church for the cemetery.Anna's family is kind of hard to locate since he bounced between Shubrick and Szudrowicz. Then you add in the misspellings along the way.

Thank you so much for adding the obituary for Henrietta Laur to her memorial. It especially meant a lot to my husband who loved his grandma dearly.

William probably went by Wallace instead of William to help stop the confusion in the family. His father was William too.

RE: Caroline Phillips #144403279
Thanks a lot! Much appreciated! There are a lot of mistakes on the families. William may have gone by William and Wallace, I have come across this many times. Sometimes the graves do not match the deaths and birth dates too. You don't even want to see my grandparents records. They had nicknames too. I have copies of there records and everyone is different. Some errors are clerical errors, change in languages, Families making mistakes under stress of someone dieing or a relative fills it out and do not really know the information. I don't have much on the Phillips, but some. I was missing Caroline to go any further. I have not found her son Ernest death date yet. Last census showed the same place were she died. Have not found much on her children. To many Phillips! I wish I had some obits to open things up.

I am trying to find Christopher Artley 29 Aug 1809 England. He owned property with his brother John Artley in Canton.
In the year 1834 Christopher Artley received an original land grant in Section 29 on what is now Geddes Road between Beck and Denton. Both the names Christopher and that of a J. Artley appear in Section 29 on an 1860 Canton Township map, with John Artley owning part of Christopher's original land grant as well a parcel of land immediately to the East. Although the relationship of Christopher and John Artley is not known, the 1860 Canton census shows that they were both born in England within four years of each other. Possible brothers. Probably lived in the vicinity of Ingleton and Staidburn, Lascashire England. It is believed that the Hicks family moved to Canton from New York. Nathaniel Hicks died at Shelton in 1826 and that John Artley arrived in Canton circa 1833.

That's just way too convenient. I live in Elkhart County, IN, so if you should need a photo for any of the cemeteries here, let me know. I'd be happy to return the favor.
