Bio and Links
Bio Photo Thank you Zinger for sponsoring Lieut Charles A. Hammond. Remember those who served and died for their country.

Find a grave is a DATABASE which offers the unique ability to add further information and photos.
Excluding cenotaphs, there is one deceased name listed and the final dispostion of the remains. Once a name is listed on this database, why come along and deliberately
add the same name as a 2nd or 3rd listing.
If 100 people had a sense of entitlement to list the same deceased person's name because they are related in some way, can you imagine how messed up this database would be.

Ancestry is a wonderful site for building family trees. Hundreds of people can list the same person. No problem.
If a family member is already listed on find a grave, be happy and please don't mess up the database by re-adding what is already there. If the listing is out of guidelines, put it in a virtual cemetery and use edit to add data.
Please show respect for the work of others and delete a duplicate name when requested to do so. Admin and others have enough to do. Thank you
Many are entered under BOTH maiden and married names. Dupes standing out in a cemetery are being dealt with. When I am finished each cemetery, admin will run the deduper.
Some memorials I manage are listed under either just a married or maiden names. Check both.


It has a name .... "VANDALISM" and it is a crime of which you can be charged.

So someone comes to your house and chalks the numbers so they can better read them
Someone chalks your vehicles licence plates because they are old and barely readable.
Someone thinks it's great to chalk your neighbours house with grafitti

Well you get the picture.

RE: Willy/Willey
He was one of my Great Grandfather's older brothers. I am still trying to research on Barney to make sure he is buried at Holy Family and will let you know what I find out. I got his death certificate in the same place as you and it doesn't state where he is buried.

RE: Barney
Let me see if I can clear up some on the cemetery names: St. Joseph in Klacking Creek was changed to Holy Family several years ago. St. Joseph in West Branch has always been St. Joseph. West Branch Township has also been known as Campbell Corners (because that is where it is and it is also located in Klacking Township)and as Campbell Hills.I live in Ogemaw County and I know how confusing it can be. How are you related to the Willey/Willy clan?

RE: barney willey info
Thanks for your quick reply. I have his death certificate from the state of Michigan and no where does it say where he is buried. Is there some way you could email me a copy of what you found. Thank You.

RE: Orillia obits
I need a few obits from the Orillia Packet and Times (4 grandparents) but only if it is convenient for you to do. I don't want anyone to go to too much trouble since I could probably write away to the library via snail mail.

RE: bacon
Are you able to look up Orillia obits?

Barney Willy
You have him as find a grave 68701203. You have him listed as being buried in West Branch Township Cemetery~West Branch, MI. Can you tell me where you found that information? He would have been my great uncle and I have never been able to find where he was buried for sure but don't believe it was in this cemetery but one a few miles down the road which is the Catholic cemetery where his parents and my Grandma, his sister and other family members are buried. Would appreciate your reply. Thanks!

David Badgerow
Hello Yandeau,

The bio which appears on David Badgerow's listing is inaccurate (ID #101142319). His parents were David and Nancy Ann (Gordon) Badgerow - and grandfather was Henry, a French-Canadian Protestant who migrated into New York in 1736.

Recently discovered church records have established the family's presence in the Germantown region of New York between 1745-1767, pre-Revolutionary War, disproving family tradition of the family having come from France with Lafayette to fight in the war. Henry wed Gertruyd Muller.

It is unknown what the family's original French surname may have been because Henry appears in various records as: Bashreaux, Bashrow, Bergerac, Bergereau and Bergeron.

Kind Regards,
