ME I'm a 39 yr old mother of two teenage kids, a girl and a boy, and a wife of 17 years. I started several years ago on Ancestry.com and have been hooked ever since. Finding find a grave was a blessing to me so my newest hobby is going and taking pictures of headstones to enter for others. My favorite sections are the really old ones with the beautiful monuments and the small humble ones too. My downfall is when I go to enter them in I tend to spend a lot of time (lately)getting on Ancestry.com trying to come up with a bio for them. I'm realizing that if I want to get much done, I'll have to quit that.
Favorite geneology resources (though there are many): Ancestry.com findagrave.com familysearch.com.
Do you have photos? If you have any people photographs, corrections or bio info for ANY of the memorials I've added, please let me know and I'd be very happy to add them a.s.a.p. (or feel free to add them yourself!)
To suggest corrections/additions... 1. Go to the memorial page and click on the "Edit" tab 2. click on "Suggest a correction or provide additional information"
Transferring memorials If there is someone who I've submitted to findagrave who is a closer relative to you, or a good friend, I would be happy to turn their memorial over to you if you ask as most of the the memorials I have entered are NOT in MY family tree. To do that, follow the same directions above (for submitting a correction) and just send me a request to transfer.

Many years ago< I recall seeing an obit or news article about the death of Clara Plumb. They lived on Fenton Rd. which was Us 23 at that time. She crossed Fenton Rd. to pick up their mail and was struck by an automobile.
Old obituaries can sometimes be found at the Flint Public Library. At 91, I no longer spend time there.
Teegarden April, If you are on Ancestry, go on Ancestry and find SWAFFORD-2010 and you will find more pictures of Teegardens. This is a public tree. If you cant't find it, I can invite you. You can download the pictures on my Find A Grave if you want, but I think there are more on our tree...Peggy
mary hunter not sure. last census was the 1920 in arenac, i went there a few weeks ago and searched the courthouse records, twp records and cemeterys they are not there, did the same for bay county, i am figuring they may have went to live with one of the daughters, mary hunter or jessie both were in flint. jessie is also buied in this cemetery where mary is. Geo and sarah would have been in thier 80's in 1920.
RE: Mary Hunter I am looking for her parents Geo and Sarah went by two different last names Mitchell and Reese. bothe died after the 1920 census and before the 1930 one. also any of the names of people inher plot Thanks bunchs i really appreciate your effort.. Carol
