Bio and Links

I have many orphan memorials - meaning I'm not related and they need someone to properly manage them. Please check out the many orphan Myers in Saranac Cemetery in Michigan.

Ask for a transfer(s) by using the EDIT button on the memorial page and click on "suggest any other correction or addition." Make sure you put your member # in the note and your relationship. I transfer outside FaG guidelines.

Thanks for your support of this site by your hard work posting, editing, adding photos AND using Find a Grave!

I have 16,000+ hrs of genealogical research since 2001 and specialize in the Great Lakes area. Love to help others find their families so if you need help, feel free to ask.

I leave flowers only when I visit a memorial and, lately, have been trying to remember to add my relationship. If I leave a flower or send an edit, I most likely have that person (or a close relative) in my own family database.

On 13 April 16, I created a new memorial token that says: In my database but not related. (To copy and use: see memorial # 147121403)

Question? Correction? Use the EDIT button and click "suggest any other correction or addition" (quickest way and private) or leave a public message. If I ask for your source, don't be offended: I want to add the source to my database.

The cat ate the bird (if you've read this profile before, you'll get the joke) so I'm only going to say life is too short, so live and love as if this is your last day.

Thank You
I changed the death to coincide with the death record which was quite specific, and added a note for those who note the earlier year on the stone.

RE: Gardners

That would be my maternal grandfather Glen Gardner. His father was Henry Bunting Gardner, and Henry B's father was Henry Gardner. The only consistent piece of information in Henry Sr.'s records is that he was born in Canada. We family researchers have determined that this was in 1812. Our tradition is that his parents came from England to Canada.

It would be wonderful if you could find something about Henry Sr. He first settled in Washtenaw County MI, and married Elizabeth Bunting.

You may want to read the bios I wrote for these ancestors on Find-A-Grave. Start with the Gardners buried in Livingston County MI. The links will take you to my grandparents in Montcalm County MI.

Look forward to further communication. Perhaps we should use email. That seems to be a more secure route.

RE: Thomas Talbott Death Notice !!
Took me a while, but I returned to the library and found some additional information on Thomas. The information card from Woodlawn states that Thomas was buried at Woodlawn in 1928 and that he was "removed from Plainville, Michigan". I have a copy of the record if you would like me to email it to you.

Hello, I don't believe we have connected before. I would enjoy communicating with you. Mary is my great grandmother and I would like to connect with her living descendants. My email is I would love to connect with any relatives from John Thomas Bieber and Isabel Robinson. Also Charles Beard and Grace Evelyn Beard Simonson.

Thank you for the information. I had absolutely nothing on her. Her parents must have been very important people. I've never seen a monument that tall for any "ordinary" person!

Best regards,

Hi Cherie,

Thanks for the information about Nora's husbands. I added it to her memorial.

Enjoy the weekend!

RE: Isaac Huff, etc
Isaac W Huff is my great grandfather. My grandmother, Eva, had recorded her father's name as Isaac Wakeman Huff. I have seen the name Weightman before, so I know there is some family controversy about this. I searched the Dibean index but could not find a Huff/Koch marriage listed. Could you possibly send me the url for that listing? Do you know who contributed the info to the Dibean index? Clearing up this middle name matter would be most welcome. It has long weighed on people's minds.


I believe you have Hugh Huff married to the wrong Sarah Huff. Sarah Huff was born in 1829 in Pennsylvania. Hugh & Sarah were married in PA. Their first child, Martha, was born in PA. Sarah's father is, indeed, Amos Huff. He was born in 1766 in New Jersey. Sarah's mother is Margaret. Margaret was born in 1796 in PA. I do not know Margaret's maiden name. She died in Park, Michigan 9 April 1880. Amos Huff, father of Sarah, is also Hugh Huff's grandfather. Hugh married his father's half-sister. There was no divorce. Sarah died in 1865. Hugh remarried as a widower. He remarried a first cousin. That guy liked to keep things in the family.
