Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a historical archaeologist in Tucson, Arizona. My family has lived in Grand Traverse County, Michigan since the 1860s. I have been researching the families of Long Lake township and preparing a detailed history of that area. I am also adding entries for several defunct cemeteries here in Tucson.

If you find a memorial of a relative, please contact me and I will gladly transfer memorials to you. Also feel free to use the photographs on my memorials that are taken by my for however you want to use them.

Michael Horen (memorial #55157949)
Hello Homer,
My name is Karen Borg and Michael Horen is one of my ancestors. His memorial includes an obituary which states that he was to be buried in Long Lake Cemetery but his memorial is in Linwood Cemetery and no picture is included.
I hate to bother you but do you happen to recall what info you had that led you to place his memorial at Linwood?
I'm just going a little crazy because I've been unable to find headstones for any of the Horens.
Thanks for all of your contributions to Find A Grave.

Hi Homer

Thanks for the transfer offer but you have done such a nice job on the memorial that you should retain management.

Am just happy I could help fill in the blank re his first wife. And I found another one of their children, so that link should appear soon too.

Thank you for the transfer, and now he can be linked with his wife, son and other family members. And thank you again for the marker photo!

RE: Andrew Umlor, Hawkins, Ambler
Have you read the requests for Hattie, James & Ann Hawkins? There's a little white cloud behind their names with a small blue i in it (for information).

Each one states that I realize that there is no stone, but to please take a photo of that person's resting place and to I.D. that spot on the photo under caption beneath the photo upon up loading it.

Without a grave photo Ancestry will not list the data nor give us a place to add the cemetery's photo. It also "proves" that that certain person IS in that cemetery, so to speak.

...and aren't I crafty? LOL

I want to thank you for your time and the effort you have extended to me and my shirt-tail kin. The photo of Andrew Umlor was by Jack that you? I have ran into his work many times before.

Hi Homer,

Sorry it took so long to respond!

Ebare Family
You have done a wonderful job on your creation of the memorials for Felix and Libby Ebare. They are my 3rd great-grandparents. I am descended from their daughter, Phoebe Ebare-Steinebach. She married a man of German descent, joined the Catholic Church upon her marriage and had a very large family. This is her memorial, created by a cousin of mine, and I provided the photos: 54485142.
