Bio Photo This is my able assistant "Bart". He and I enjoy taking the photos, so don't hesitate to transfer them for your own use. I don't need credit for the photo. I am also happy to transfer maintenance on any of the memorials I have done.
I live in Michigan so I have a few months where I can't get out and get photos. I will get to the many requests as soon as the weather gets nice again.

RE: Laurence Greenwood
Helen- I will contact the man who filled out the paper work, since he knows the people he spoke with, and see if he has heard anything further, regarding this.

Laurence Greenwood
Upon checking my records further I found the following: that in 2010 upon learning that Laurence Greenwood had no tombstone, and that the Indigent Veterans fund in Osceola Co., Michigan paid for Laurence's funeral. I then contacted an acquaintance, who lived in MI. and told him; he being a veteran contacted the veterans assoc. in MI. and got forms to fill in for Laurence's marker, and he turned them in to VFW Post 4406 on 3 Mar. 2010 (in Belding, MI?) They could find no record of Laurence Greenwood on their NARA site! The commander of Post of the VFW Post 7979 in Evart, Mi. was to be contacted and get the ball rolling on this request. I do not know what occurred since then.

There was no marker for Laurence Greenwood. He was a Civil War Veteran and the Veterans Assoc. was to see about getting a marker or stone placed there, but I have not heard whether they ever took any further action.

Hi Helen: I got your message. By Find A Grave rules, the first memorial posted remains. I will change his burial location to Woodland. You can add his grave marker and death certificate to my memorial if you want to but my memorial was posted in 2013. Regards...

Kappler Bailey
I think I've discovered the connection with these two names. Fred Alton Kappler and Marguerite Bailey were both widowed, and apparently married each other late in life. However, at death, they were each buried with their former spouses with whom they had had their children. Because there is no explanation on either of their memorial pages, but extra names, it is a bit confusing. I have asked for a transfer of Fred Kappler (my relative), and if it is granted, I will write a brief explanation as to why the wife's name on his gravestone differs from the widow in his obituary. Thank you for your contacts.

RE: Kappler grave
I'm not aware of any relationship that I have with Marguerite Bailey, and I have also received a previous message about her recently. Is it possible that there is someone else that is expecting a response from you about Marguerite Bailey? I do have a great aunt Nellie who was married to Ernest Kappler, and they are buried in Mt. Pleasant, MI., but I have no current activity with their memorial pages. I'm sorry for the confusion.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! I really appreciate the transfer. I promise to take awesome care of Ruth. I've already updated some of the information and am search of a few missing items so I can get that added on immediately. I really appreciate people like you who take so much time to add memorials to Find A Grave. It's so wonderful when you are in search of a loved one and you come across a memorial for them. Again, thank you, and God Bless!
