Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am very much enjoying doing our family genealogy and learning about our family. The "Lemon" side, the "Eastman" side (my mother's) and the "Reid" side (my wife's). If anyone has any stories about our families I would love to see them.

I am working with Family Tree Maker 2014. I really enjoy working with this program. This project helps to keep my mind active. Originally from Galesburg, Michigan we now live in Lady Lake, Florida.

Connie and I have taken Genealogical trips researching our families and taking pictures of headstones in many cemeteries. We have been to Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, & Canada recording cemeteries. If anyone has any further information or corrections please feel free to contact me so I can make this information as complete and correct as possible. If I know we have family members in a cemetery I usually take pictures of every legible, and some barely legible, headstones.

Please help me with corrections.If you have additional info or a correction to one or more of my memorials please use the edit button then suggest a correction on that memorial. Leaving me a message makes it harder to make that correction.

These trips have afforded us the pleasure of meeting many distant cousins and we even found the original "Lemon" house built in 1809 and still being lived in in Columbia County, Pennsylvania. I had the pleasure of talking with a man that had grown up in the house and could tell me many stories of its history.

A picture is worth a thousand words and for the most part I only post internments with a picture of the headstone. Consequently I don't always record every inscription on the headstone. It is already written in stone.

We don't take all these pictures as if we're in some sort of a contest. We do it so we can help other people researching for their family members. I much prefer having a picture of the headstone. It is my belief that in death the family is much more likely to record the proper/correct information. It is true that upon rare occasions an engraver will make a mistake but much less likely than a census taker. Census records are a good guide but some people are very lackadaisical in giving the correct information to the census taker or the census taker is only trying to earn a pay check and just writes down what he/she wants, the way he/she hears it and many times very unledgible.

Unfortunately, Connie passed away on February 12, 2011. I will carry on but researching is not the same without her help. I truly miss being able to use her as a sounding board for ideas and problems. We really enjoyed traveling and taking photos of cemeteries.

Family research can be an addiction, it is for me, but it can be very rewarding and is a great avenue for meeting and corresponding with many distant relatives. I wish everyone happy hunting in your research.

Submitting a SAC ("Suggest a Correction" on the Edit tab) is the ONLY way to give me the information I need for corrections or transfer requests. I will not make changes from public messages. Please don't make me turn off public messages. (Public messages don't have the necessary links to do changes efficiently.) I take a lot of time posting these memorials. I am only too happy to make changes when I make a mistake but most of the time these public messages don't have enough information and don't even tell me what cemetery the person is in. I'm an old man and have a severe case of CRS so I'm not going to try to find your memorial in error.

I thank you for taking this grave photo and that of his wife Orene. I was wondering if it would be okay to use your grave photo on a family tree, provided I give you credit as the photographer.

Carl is/was a cousin of mine, but I don't want to request a memorial transfer, as there are survivors of their's that are much closer in relation than I am.

Thank you very much for the transfers! We look forward to updating them and more. Thank you for all your efforts in documenting who's buried in Ontario.

Mother Payne
I think this should give you the name of "Mother" Payne plus her maiden name There is no obit in the archives at the Monroe County Museum for her but there is one for "Father" Payne. That is how I got his name because the death date matched the memorial.

Name Title Age Spouse Maiden Name

Thanks for the edit, Jim. Growing up in Petersburg, Mich., I knew Jim and the entire Housman family. Heck! There was hardly anyone in that little town that I didn't know.

Marian V Heilman 25905356
Thanks again for the prompt reply. You have Marian V Heilman (Find A Grave Memorial# 25935368) listed under parents William E Heilman (Find A Grave Memorial# 25935315) and Blanche L Heilman (Find A Grave Memorial# 25935368), however the 1930 and 1940 US Federal Census does not this relationship.. Even the obituary you have posted on Leah Blanche Heilman, does not list a Marian V Heilman Mann as a daughter.
Don't kmow to which family lineage she belongs but it is not this branch as far as I can tell
Thanks again for all your work.

RE: Marion Mann
Thank you for getting back to me. I apologize for the "inappropriate" way of posting. I am new to this - I will try and make the correction through the edit button. Just want to make you aware that I still stand by my original message - you have Marian V Heilman Mann Find A Grave Memorial # 25905356 associated with Parents William E Heilman and Blanche L. Heilman - and yet by your own message you state that the parents are Lewis Dennis Mann and Margaret (LNU)
Thanks for all your hard work - I am amazed at the detail you provide.
