CORRECTION NECESSARY
Sorry, Audra...the entry that still needs your newest pic is #7169278...

Request for you to place your GREAT new pic on #7169275 over on #7169275 as well...
Hi again, Audra...my gosh, the Wade family of Michigan is actually approaching being completely connected together on find-a-grave, just as they are on familysearch.org. If I could request your gracious assistance just one more time regarding this task, because your newest FABULOUS pic you have already placed on Tom Fury's #7169275 also needs to be on Tom's #7169278...am assuming you at least don't have to go back out in this cold stuff for this request...NOW ALL WE ALL NEED IS TO HAVE MORE FOLKS WHO ARE BASICALLY SITTING ON THE SIDELINES START JUMPING IN & HELP CARRY THE LOAD!!! I can say with some certainty that fellow find-a-grave member Laurie Updike (related to George Nelson Wade's wife Mary) is appreciative of our group efforts, & Chris Yoder, a member of the Saugatuck Historical Society, has also done a great deal in documenting the Wade family on find-a-grave...AN ENORMOUS "WAY TO GO" IS DESERVED BY ALL, & THANKS AGAIN...

Thanks a lot for trying to find Geerd and Steve's headstones. Must be they don't have any...

Re: find-a-grave I.D. #s 7169278/7169274/7169275
Hi, Audra...WOW, WHAT A GREAT PIC YOU JUST TOOK, SUCH THAT I HAD TO LET LAURIE UPDIKE KNOW ABOUT IT!!! (the first such contact I have attempted with her) Hope you did not freeze too much, & although myself a Chicago boy, I would just as soon you all would keep this cold weather/snow for yourselves in Michigan, because here in South Jersey we aren't quite ready for this stuff yet! Re: 7169278, it is not so much creating a find-a-grave entry for Willard, as correcting the existing entry for William (incidentally, perfectly understandable that Tom Fury would not have known that Willard was apparently also from time to time referred to as William, even on his death certif.!) Unfortunately, I do not yet know who Winnie was, although based upon your G R E A T recent photo, I am reasonably guessing she was a daughter of Willard's...REGARDS, & KUDOS ON A JOB WELL-DONE...HERE'S HOPING THAT ALL DESCENDANTS ARE SUITABLY APPRECIATIVE OF YOUR ENORMOUSLY CONSCIENTIOUS EFFORTS!!!!!

Find-a-grave I.D.# 7169278
Greetings from a fellow volunteer researcher, albeit I am on familysearch.org, currently researching the family of George Nelson Wade & his wife Mary Updike Wade. It does appear that the above individual, apparently identified as William Wade in Maple Grove Cemetery records, may well be one of their sons, identified in U.S. Census records as either Willard D. or William, with an estimated birth year of 1861, birthplace Michigan...please further note that his parents are both buried in this same cemetery, as are some of his sibs...My problem now is I can not make out much of the writing in the headstone pics...ANY POSSIBILITY OF SOMEONE GIVING ME AN INFORMAL TRANSCRIPTION OF WHAT IS ON THE HEADSTONES, ASSUMING YOU MAY BE ABLE TO BETTER MAKE OUT THE WRITING ? Any assistance would be much appreciated, noting my goal is likely the same as yours, EXPRESSING OUR RESPECT FOR THOSE WHO HAVE COME BEFORE...REGARDS FROM A FELLOW VOLUNTEER GENEALOGIST WHO BOTH UNDERSTANDS & APPRECIATES YOUR EFFORTS (AttorneyBradyat@outlook.com)

Thanks for letting me know about the duplicate memorial. I've contacted TF to see if we can merge.

I have the original obituary. If you like, I can either add a picture of it to the memorial or email it to you
