Anyone who wants to take over management of any memorials.....just ask!
Also, any and all photos that I've taken in these cemeteries can be used by anyone, you don't even have to ask! If anyone has a better photo of a gravemarker that I've added, just add it and let me know, and I will delete the one I added.

If you would like me to take a photo of a gravemarker or retake a photo, check with the cemetery or Twp. office and find out what section it is in; then I will walk the section to find it. I will then replace it if it is on my interment page or email it to you if it is on someone else's page!

Jackson Monument Works does a great job in cleaning and restoring grave-markers, I've seen them at work while I was photographing markers.

Francis Stumpf
Thank you so much for transferring our 1st great grandfather to me. We always thought his name was Frank - which we were told - finally figured out that Francis is him! Appreciate it very much.

Thank you for the transfer of Alvin Zentz. He is my great grandmother's brother so I guess that means he's my great great uncle. I would like to find out more about his WWI service to add to his biography. I appreciate your kindness.

RE: Glen L. Bice
Thanks Vern! I appreciate it. Sorry I didn't get to it sooner. Been sick. Are you connected to BICES or working Veteran memorials?

I'm a Bice descendant myself who is tracing as many of the Bice across the country as I can. They are an amazing bunch!

Did you see marker for Jack? It is at the back and sometimes gets covered with mud. He is a distant relative and played with my Dad when they were kids...

Also, you might find interesting that William Nimmo was an electrician. He was chief electrician at the cement plant in Cement City. He also ran Nimmo Electric, a family business. My Dad enlisted in the Navy and spent some time at Great Lakes, but the surgeon up there discharged him because one of his ears was higher on his head than the other. That did not bother the army. Dad passed army physical no problem. They sent him to the Signal Corp school at Camp Crowder when they saw his electrical background. The Signal Corp outfit he was with got attached to the Army Air Corps. So Dad served in the Navy, Army, and Air Force in WWII. He was in North Africa, Sardinia, and Italy....
