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 orphan Myers in Saranac Cemetery in Michigan and my Virtual Cemetery "Adopt Me" on the right --->

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 so that the memorials can receive proper care from interested family members.

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 while doing research 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.

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.

Hi Cherie, I see your name on several TAFT memorials in Zorra. I am looking for relatives or information about Sophia Taft, born 1815 in Vermont. Married Lanty Shannon Youngs in 1841. Any info appreciated. Deborah

Sarah McElrath
I an reasonably sure that Sarah died in Michigan between 1856 and 1860. The obituary of her son George states he moved to Michigan about age 6 with his parents. This would be about 1856 and Sarah is not in the 1860 census.

Humphrey Turner
Hi Cherie! Good observation re: Humphrey. My listing of his stone in First Parish was done by personal observation; a very old stone if I remember correctly BUT stone memorials were not common in 1673 when he d. and the one in Man of Kent Cemetery was definitely added much later after his death (1889?). Also possible his remains were moved? At this point, cemetery records of either location might tell us which location is the final resting place as without them I wouldn't want to guess. He may have been a member of the First Parish Church and the one there is a memorial and not a burial, but the stone did not say or I would have recorded it. Sorry I can't be of more help here...Linda

I'm thinking she might have been moved. The one I have seems newer. So that is possible..
Sorry I don't know the answer to this.
