Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hey there Gravers! I'm a 35 year old Semi-Professional Genealogist and Local Historian with a past in cemetery operations...Hillcrest in Jackson, MI, Albion Memory Gardens, Albion, MI and Forest Lawn in Dimondale, MI. I know those cemeteries extremely well....especially Hillcrest in which most ancestors on my mother's recent side reside....I'm also very familiar with St John's Catholic, Woodland, Mt Evergreen, and Roseland in Jackson, Michigan...as well as many of the local rural cemeteries...many of which I have family in.

I am also currently doing work with Presque Isle County (North Eastern Lower Penninsula Michigan)

Please feel free to contact me with questions, or if I may be able to help you! As you can tell, I am so very passionate about genealogy and the history that lies within a cemetery's gates. That being said, I would love to help anyone I can!

I am researching the surnames FALL STRASSBURGER ROHRER PEMBERTON ARNEY OTREMBA and PRINCE among others. Happy hunting!

"Dance In The Graveyards" Lyrics:

When I die
I don't want to rest in peace
I want to dance in joy
I want to dance in the graveyards, the graveyards
And while I'm alive
I don't want to be alone
Mourning the ones who came before
I want to dance with them some more
Let's dance in the graveyards

Gloria, like some other name we kept on calling ya and waiting for change
But I belong to all of your mysteries

And all of us, we're meant for the fire, but we keep rising up and walking the wires
So when we go below don't lose us in mourning

'Cause when I die
I don't want to rest in peace
I want to dance in joy
I want to dance in the graveyards, the graveyards
And while I'm alive
I don't want to be alone
Mourning the ones who came before
I want to dance with them some more
Let's dance in the graveyards

Oh my love, don't cry when I'm gone
I will lift you up, the air in your lungs
And when you reach for me, we'll dance in the darkness

And we will walk beyond
Our daughters and sons, they will carry on
Like when we were young, and we will stand beside and breathe in their new life

'Cause when I die
I don't want to rest in peace
I want to dance in joy
I want to dance in the graveyards, the graveyards
And while I'm alive
I don't want to be alone
Mourning the ones who came before
I want to dance with them some more
Let's dance in the graveyards

David Delph
Hi Bill,
Since you are very familiar with the Woodlawn Cemetery in Jackson MI, I wonder if you can find more information on my father-in-law, David Delph. He passed away in 1967 and I believe he was buried near several family members (Benjamin, ET, Henry, Alice Mallory) in that same cemetery. The short story is my husband never knew his father but was told he spent time with him when he was an infant. He passed away when my husband was 1 1/2. We are unsure of his birth and death date and wondered if you had access to that information.

Sincerely
Beverly Johnson Delph

zachariah prince
hello bill, just found this listing you added for my ancestor buried in the "prince" cemetery in cherokee, lawrence county, kentucky and noticed you have his parents listed as john william prince and mary giles. do you have any kind of documentation for this info as i do not have this same info: i have his parents as: william prince and rachel murphy. there are to my knowledge at this time approx. 3 different prince family lines and because of this the 2 men (william and john william) and their families are always getting tangled together. would be interested in any info you might have.
thank you,
donna

Hi. This is my great grandfather. I have been to Bell cemetery many times. My cousins Mark built the new cement stones and my husband built the split level fence around Antoine's grave.
I just wondered how you obtained the information about the drowning. I knew it happened but I was unaware of the information about Roger's City. Is there information available> There used to be a book in the light house that contained the story but last time I was there, they said it wasn't there any more and I should check the museum down the road. I didn't get time so I wondered if you had seen it.
Thanks. Yvonne Arnold

Bill,

We just got back from our vacation yesterday.
Have these two memorials been moved (I don't see them listed in TN.). Should I go ahead and make memorials for them in this new cemetery and then delete the ones at Roseland. Also, will their grave-markers be moved also or should I re-locate the markers?

That's okay. I'm not about numbers. I just like the information to be "out there" for others who want to know about their family.

I will delete mine. Thanks. Find a grave goes by the numbers; which one was first. Helen

Thanks for the heads up!

Cooks in Parshallville Cemetery
Hi! Thanks for your photos. However, there is a mistake in relationships. If you are the one who connected Charlotte Cook to William Cook as a spouse, please know that she is actually Charlotte (Cook) Cobb, wife of William Cobb and daughter of William Cook. If you could make that change I would appreciate it very much. See http://livingston.migenweb.net/parshallville/cem_tombstone_reading.htm.

Thanks, Beverly Royer
