|Christie Trapp||RE: Geers in Cherry Hill Cemetery|
Thanks for letting me know about the second Find A Grave memorial. It has been my experience so far, that people have two monuments erected in two separate cemeteries. One is where the body is actually buried and one is just a family memorial. I guess you call them centographs. I have several in my own family lines where there are two monuments erected for the same person. It is also been my experience that the one that appears to have the "oldest" stone is usually where the body is actually buried. The ones that appear to be the "newest" is just a memorial monument. The name got engraved on sombody else's grave. Today, this practice would be terribly expensive and is probably not done; however, as you indicated as a thought, perhaps they are originally buried in one and then some family member decided to have the body moved, but the marker was left behind in the original cemetery.
Now it is a matter of getting to the "cemetery office" and seeing what their records have to say. I say "cemetery office" because I'm finding that a lot of the Michigan cemeteries don't have offices on site, but they are somewhere in the town or township offices and these offices are only open during the week and during business hours, which makes it a real bummer for those of you who volunteer to take photos trying to locate where the markers in the particular cemetery. I don't live in Michigan and so it is hard for me to know which cemeteries have offices on the premises and which are housed in city hall, a funeral home, or wherever the records are kept these days.
Any help you can provide since you live there would be greatly appreciated. I will post a photo request as you suggest just to see what kind of a response I get back. There are a lot of cemeteries that volunteers seem to shun and so no photos aren't forthcoming any time soon. Let's hope this one is fruitful and I'm rewarded with a grave photo, or at the least -- no stone can be found, or the response is no one here by that name.
Thanks for taking the time to contact me, to photography the markers that you found, and I hope that you have a grand summer with very little heat and humidity to drive you back indoors!

Samuel P. Spring is buried at Grand Lawn Cemetery
Detroit,Wayne County,Michigan in Plot: Section 15, but I have not found Edith Brownie Spring burial record yet. I can only assume she is buried there too.
Thank you for all the work you are going.
|Bobbie Williamson Schaffer||RE: William J Couch, Jr. information|
I know that William John Couch died sometime after the 1930 census and was living in Detroit at the time with his niece Edith Brownie Spring, I don't have any death records for him at all. The other William John Couch, who you found living in Michigan around the same time is my Grandpa Couch, his name is also William John and he was name after the William John that we have been talking about(he was my Grandpa's Uncle). Any help you can get me is greatly appreciated. Thank you for all your work and the help that you have provided.

|Bobbie Williamson Schaffer||Couch Family at Highland Cemetery|
I have another favor to ask of you. In the Highland Cemetery,in Ypsilanti,Washtenaw,Michigan there is three other people I was wondering if you could look for them when you are there sometime and get a photo of their headstones. Accord to the cemetery plot map that I have for Jeremaih and Selina Couch, their daughter Mary Ann Couch Hubbard is buried right beside them and her husband George Richard Hubbard is too. I think Mary Ann's headstone should read "Mrs.Geo.Hubbard" her birthdate should be July 5,1853 and death date should be Jan. 17, 1917,I have a grave memorial for her but no headstone picture. George's headstone should read
"Geo. Richard Hubbard" his birthdate should be 1858 and death date should be Jan. 20, 1939, he also has a grave memorial but no headstone picture. There is also a baby named Charles Couch, who was born to my Grampa Charles Henry Couch and his wife Devona who is buried there somewhere at Highland Cemetery, but I don't know where. Baby Charles Couch was born on Feb. 2, 1904 and died on Aug. 24, 1904 all I have for him is a death cert. Baby Charles also has a grave memorial but no headstone picture.
If you can help me with any of this information it would be greatly appericated.
Thank you so much,
|Bobbie Williamson Schaffer||RE: Jeremiah and Selina Couch|
Thank you so much for make Emily J "Emma" Roberts Couch a grave memorial. Emily divorced Eli Corwin, proir to her marriage to William John Couch. They never had any children. William John didn't died until 1930 and there were no living family member left except my Grammpa Charles Henry Couch(William John's brother),to take care of funeral arrangement for William John. The stone behind Emily is probably William John's, if there it anyway you can contact the cemetery to find out I would greatly appericate it. I live in Kentucky and I'm unable to travel to find the information out myself. I'm try to link my family together on Find-A-Grave to make an online family tree.
All your help is greatly appericated,
