I have enjoyed genealogy for many years; very addictive. This web site is wonderful for a research tool. It is getting better all the time as people add more and more graves and the notes attached are very helpful. My main research is the Bucklands and Wingards but of course, this goes off onto many other branches.
Otis Eddy Thank you for your edit recommendation. I know his tombstone & obit list his birth year as 1864, but the Greene Bible (his wife's mother's Bible) lists it as 1862. Because of this discrepancy, i have chosen to keep the 1862 entry as well as the obit listing as 1864. The Greene family is noted for secrets and for making changes in dates.
Do you have more definitive documentation of his birth?
RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 160194715 Flora Morgridge Eddy: There are 3 Greenwood Cemeteries in Kent County. The burials for the Grand Rapids Cemetery are listed on grcity.com. She is not there. Perhaps she is buried in one of the other 2.
Wingard Addie I was checking your name from an edit that you asked me to do on Boswell and saw that you were doing Wingard's and just wanted to let you know that Rhoda Ann Wingard was my Great Grandmother and if we are related. My mother was Rhoda Mae Ingram Spear.
RE: Thomas Hudie Boswell I had surmised that when I saw your interest was in Wingard and Buycks lines. We may still some degree of cousin, Linda Boswell's mother and I share a common ancestor, William Huett 3 generations back from her. I do not do genealogy for the most common reason -- finding MY ancestors. They are all dead. They can do nothing for me; I can do nothing for them. My interest is in knowing WHO IS alive and related to me -- not that I expect anything from them, but because we share a common heritage & possibly one or more interests. (Sadly, many of those whom I have found seem to be interested only in themselves.) The key to who is lies in who was. William Huett was my gg-grandfather, so you can see how far off my direct line I have wandered. FYI, the surnames to my line above Linda Boswell are SHAW and HUETT.
