I started doing genealogical research when I was eleven years old in 1968-- nearly fifty years ago. My interest in cemeteries and tombstones grew out of that passion for family history and I now have images I have taken of over 1,600 beautiful, interesting, famous, and humorous tombstones from all over the world. I give programs using those collections of photographs. Today, I live in Westminster, Colorado.|

You are quite welcome John.
|Dawna Ellis||RE: Sylvester Lyman|
Thank you so much for your quick reply! Looks like you have the same information that I have about Sylvester and Nettie (Pollock), including their daughter Lutie. I am pretty darn sure that I am related by marriage to Nettie, but I have not been able to find anything about her between the time of her birth and her marriage to Sylvester. My fraternal great, great uncle Stewart Gilmore McClelland was married to Mary (Mollie) E. Pollock.....her father, George Pollock, was born in Nova Scotia in 1803. According to the 1900 & 1910 US Census, Nettie's father was born in Nova Scotia. It seems to me there may be a correlation. I have some social references (new articles & a family diary) that refer to other members of the Pollock line and one article documenting that Lutie P. Lyman attended a wedding along with my great, great uncle Gilmore McClelland and Aunt Mollie McClelland. Lutie and Mollie would have been peers since they were born about 2 years apart. I have found census information that has family members with ties to Tingley, Iowa; Ringgold, Iowa; Bokes Creek, Ohio; Greene, Ohio and Tranquility Ohio. I have made great strides in the last couple of weeks, but Nettie has proven to be a mystery woman so far. I am quite jealous of your trip to the archives in Michigan! If you find anything about Nettie that you think might be useful to me or can even give me a contact at the University, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks again!

Hi, I am wondering if you remember where you found this photo and if you know any more information about Sylvester Lyman or his wife Nettie Pollock Lyman? I am trying to track Nettie's lineage, but have run into a dead end. Your help is appreciated.
|Brenda Azzara||RE: Absalom Petty|
I'm not sure where the lady got the photo that she gave me, but I am removing it from the page. After researching, I have to agree with you both. Thanks for the info and the corrective criticism. It always helps. Thanks again!! :)

You're very welcome!
Thought you might be interested in this obituary published in the Weekly Michigan Argus on March 20, 1857, p. 2:
We have the painful duty of recording the death of one of the first settlers in this city, and one among the early pioneers of the State.
—DANIEL BROWN, Esq., died at his residence in Ann Arbor, on Wednesday, the 11th inst., [1857/03/11] in the 82nd year of his age; closing a life full of years and of honor.
Mr. BROWN was born in the village of Lexington, in the State of Massachusetts in the year 1775. His family afterwards removed to Windsor County, Vermont, where for a long series of years he served in the Legislature of the State. Migrating to western New York, he filled for many years offices of trust and honor among his fellow-citizens.
He came to this place in 1826, when the site of our city was almost an unbroken wilderness. To his forethought, energy, and public spirit was the town indebted for the first impulse in its career of prosperity. He was possessed of a genial disposition, and social qualities of a high order which enabled him through life to win "troops of friends," whom he retained by his integrity, generosity and high sense of honor.
Born at the time and in the place where the first blood of the Revolution was spilt, his nursery tales were the stories of patriotism – and his cradle hymns were the songs of liberty. These early impressions remained indelible thro' life. He was enthusiastic in his support of the great party of popular rights, recording his first vote for Mr. Jefferson in 1796, and with a fidelity that never faltered, supported each succeeding Presidential candidate of that party, coming out for the last time to record his vote for Mr. Buchanan. It is an interesting fact in the early history of this County, that on the inauguration of President Jackson, in 1829, every "Jackson man" in Washtenaw County was invited, and most of them were present at his house, in a festival given in honor of the occasion. The lamp of his life went out peacefully and quietly. He died without disease and without pain; expressing gratitude that his time had come, and relying with unshaken confidence in a glorious immortality. The burial was conducted by the Masonic Societies of the City. He had been a prominent member of that institution for more than half a century.

John, I've added the five memorials to the virtual cemetery. Thanks for the heads-up. If you come across anymore veterans please let me know, I'd like to add as many of the men as can be found. Great photos!
