|Bio and Links|
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.)

To let all researching Margaret Cook know where I got my information. She is the daughter of Marcus and Delilah Schell. Her birthdate and parents' names were found on Margaret's baptismal record found on-line. For many years I had used the tombstone dates to calculate her birthdate until Margaret's adult baptismal was found by googling her name and Lemonville ON. Hope this helps.
Margaret Cook nee Schell born August 17 1800 died Dec 12 1878.

If you wish you may add their daughter to your site.
Mary McCellan was born 1808 to John & Jane. She married William McMicking (1805-1857). She died in 1873 and is buried at the Stamford Presbyterian Church Cemetery. Her grave site monument can be viewed at:
Many of her children and grand children are also buried at the Stamford Cemetery in Niagara Falls, ON., Canada and can be located via the memorials directory on the aforementioned website.

I was wondering if you had any pictures of memorial #70002704 for the French family. Either Barzilla or Enoch or surrounding family members/headstones? Are they part of your family tree? Would love to exchange research information if they are! Thanks for any help you can provide.

See Find A Grave mem #13495354.
Regarding Pvt Upton McClain, mem #28226560 in Bingham Cem., Monroe Co, Michigan, government records show he was born 2 Apr 1827, died 12 Mar 1907; served in the 180th Ohio Infantry, Co I and is interred in Trinity Lutheran Cem., 824 E. 4th St, Monroe, MI.
Can you clarify?
Thank you for the transfer of the Stewart memorials and the wonderful stone photo! People like you make research a joy!

|Verl Manwarren||James B. Manwaring, Lulu Cemetery|
I wonder if you could help me.I would greatly appreciate it.
On Celinda Higgins Manwaring obituary on your memorial on Find a Grave, you state that her husband James B. Manwaring is the son of Giles Manwaring. I have a copy of James death certificate and it states on this that his father was Peter Charles Manwaring (1786-1855).
James and Celinda are buried in the Lulu Cemetery in Ida, Monroe, Michigan near my g-g-grandfather David Manwarren.
We have never been able to establish the parents of David Manwarren. His death certificate does not list father or mother.
I believe that James and David were very possibly cousins, or, possibly, nephew and uncle. We know that David was born in New York but do not know for certain which town or county.
Would you mind telling what proof you have that James B. is the son of Giles? (I'm not being rude. I am just terribly confused by this whole sistuation). I know that there were some strong family arguments at the time and much of the information which we find is not true.
Any help at all that you can give me will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

I was wondering if you have photos of the headstones for the Bennett family in Sheffield Cemetery. Charles and Amanda were my 3G-grandparents and Josiah and Elizabeth were my 4G.
