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.
I contacted you back in August 2015 about where the photo of CLinton A. Hammond was found. At the time I was also trying to contact the Traverse City History Center. To make this shorter, I finally received information from the History Center and found out that this photo is NOT Clinton A. Hammond but the man in the 1894 Herald photo is CARLTON A Hammond, who was a cashier at local banks through the year.
Just thought I'd let you know so this can be corrected. Thanks.
Daniel Feury (1880-1943) Hi, My name is Phyllis Zegers. From Find-A-Grave it appears you might be related to Daniel M. Feury (1880-1943). He was the son of Michael Feury and Mary Jane “Jennie” Winget. I thought he might be related to you through the Feury-Griffin-Gerst-Thiele line. Dan was born in Michigan in 1880 and died at the Oregon State Hospital, a facility for treating people with mental illness in Salem, Oregon on 6/17/1943. I have updated a memorial for him on Find-A-Grave.com. Here’s the URL: http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=86708180
The memorial contains his death certificate, a biography, and the location of his ashes. His cremains and medical file are being held at the Oregon State Hospital and can be claimed by any blood relative. I have an interest in those like Dn who died at an Oregon state institution. My hope is to let relatives know where the cremains are now in case they would like to claim them. The link to the state department in charge of the cremains is http://www.oregon.gov/oha/amh/osh/pages/cremains.aspx Please let me know if you have any questions. I’d be glad to share information about how to claim the cremains if you decide you’d like to do that. Please feel free to share this letter with any other relatives who might be interested.
On YouTube there is a trailer for a documentary video that explains the situation with the ashes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E95cb54tG9w
Anna B Kyselka 1857-1887 You have the 1857-1887 Anna B Kyselka's maiden name wrong. The Anna B that was married to John Kyselka was Anna B Novotney. And the Anna Kucery/Kiscery/Kucera was born about 1868 & was married to Anthony Kyselka (John's brother).
Robert Potts Your memorial for Robert Potts (cemetery in Traverse City) says that Robert and his wife Ellen are not in 1870 census. However, check the 1870 census for Randolph, McLean, Illinois. Other Potts lived in McLean. I am trying to figure out if their mother, Ann, was re-married to Erastus Miller. That is who I am researching. Any information on Ann is helpful. Thank you for your post. Susan Stark
