Bio and Links
I have been doing genealogy for over 20 years now. I have researched the Amherst/Clarence area of New York extensively because that is where a majority of my relatives settled. In addition, a small group of my family moved and settled in the Maple Grove Township of Saginaw County, Michigan. The other side of my family - one branch comes from old Connecticut and Vermont, settling in New York around the finger lakes, with a final move to the Buffalo, NY area. The other branch coming from Ontario, Canada.

My wife's family - one side goes back to Francis Cooke (who was on the Mayflower), settled in Massachusetts, moving to Ohio, and finally settling in Grand Haven area of Michigan. The other side of her family were from the south - Tennessee and North Carolina, moving to Missouri and Illinois and finally settling in Arkansas, with some moving to Michigan.

The families I am actively researching on my side include: Woodruff, Goodrich, Fillmore, Colegrove, Haskin(s), Rudd, Wood, Badger, Beiter, Blarr, Gillis, Malcolm, Mason, Schuster, Braunscheidel, Schneider, Brown, Jung, Wittenauer (Witnauer), Spoth, Herberger, Fritton, Metzinger, Therring, Emmendorfer, Lorenz, and Leising.

The families I am actively researching on my wife's side include: Bellah, Shaw, Johnson, Jansen, Andersson, Johansson, Clark, Perry, Proffer, Hovis, Wheat, Hudson, Smith, Brown, McClain, Reed, Damon, Brown, Cooke, and Warner.

I will happily transfer management of any memorials I am not a direct descendent of. Please use the edit tab on the memorial. Thanks!
I have been actively trying to take photos of the Tempe Double Butte Cemetery graves in Tempe, AZ. If you are related to anyone in this cemetery, please let me know - I will transfer to any relation in this cemetery (would rather have family manage the memorial)

For memorials of direct descendents / family members: I put a lot of time into the research of the people in these memorials, looking up obituaries and family history, adding dates and links to other family members, etc. I would prefer to keep managing those family memorials I am a direct descendent of. If we do share the same lineage, I would love to hear from you to share information and/or pictures and talk about our lineage. I would be happy to update information on any of those memorials where we share ancestors or link to other family members as needed.

RE: James Primm
Hi Roy,
Just an update.
I am now in contact with James's great grandson Dustin Knouse. I'm not sure if he knew of find-a-grave before but I told him of it tonight. So heads up he might request the Find A Grave. But none the less we have a living relative. It is so exciting I get to share the info with Great Aunt Daisy's great grandson. Thanks again.

George Alfred (not Anthony) Birchmeier
I think I goofed...his name should be George Alfred and no Jr. St. Andrew Cemetery, Shields, MI. His father is Gerald Anthony. There IS a Gerald Anthony Jr who is still living.
Sorry

RE: Broeder Family
Roy, if you could do those links, that would be great. (I don't know how to do them yet.)
If after that you would like to transfer management to me, that would be fine, too.
Thank you for all you do.
Take care,
Carol
