I have been doing genealogy for over 25 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, Anderson, Sutherland, 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.
Myrane Eddy Malcolm I am a descendant of Hugh Malcolm & Myrane Eddy. I have not found any evidence yet that the was her name. I'm sort of taking other peoples word on it. would like to know if you have anything to show that it was Myrane that was Hugh's 1st wife.
noticed that you have her in Oakland cemetery and I am planning a trip there soon.
Tempe Double Butte Cemetery- Diane Spurlock I wondered if you would put the double headstone picture of Chester and Diane (brother and sister) onto Diane's new memorial for me? She died in 2013. Until someone, or me, can see if it's been updated, she needs a picture. Thx, The Irish Lady - Gail
RE: Joseph Depoire Thanks for asking. I am not related either I was just going thru MI death records and his was one so I just added the information that wasn't on his memorial which I thought might be helpful to someone.
