The focus of my genealogical research has been on the search for the ancestors and descendants of David Dean. and Phebe (Borland) Dean. whose sons settled in Wayne, Ingham & Eaton Counties of Michigan in the 1830's and have been spreading out ever since.
I have also been going through my family files and adding to FindAGrave. The majority of the memorials I have created are related to me.
Note that I about half of the memorials I have created are for Dean family but they are not all related to one another. Please notify me of any errors that you are aware of or if you would like to make additions or add family links to any of the memorials that I manage.
Caleb Brundage Memorial 52493746 Hello, Caleb Brundage was a 4th great grand uncle. Your memorial has his mother as Margaret Curry. Am curious about this as had not seen this person as the wife of Joseph Brundage. Could you share whatever info you have about them? Thank you. Bonnie B.
Harry Clell Berry This was a real tough one. Holy Hope had no record of him. So I went to the adjacent cemetery and after research and much help from them they found Harry buried there. He is buried at the Evergreen Cemetery NOT the Holy Hope cemetery. I'm happy that we were able to get this worked out for you.
Charles R Dean According to the inscription on his stone -- which is written in the memorial -- Charles R Dean did not actually die on 4 Nov 1918. He made it to 1945. He enlisted on 4 Nov, which was brave of him given what fates befell many enlisted men! But he was discharged in 1919. Army red tape is pretty bad, but it's not so bad that it waits until seven months postmortem to discharge a soldier. ;)
