Bio and Links
I am just trying to help others find their ancestor's final resting place in hopes that someone will help me find all of mine.

I am currently working to photograph the stones in Portland Cemetery, Portland, Michigan. Please contact me if you want to use my photos.

I will do photo requests for nearby cemeteries if you can provide a lot number.

If I have created a memorial for your ancestor I will gladly transfer management.

Photo requests for St. Pats, Bay City
I was unable to fill these requests because the office lady is very unhelpful about locating graves. She hates a list so I have found it easiest for the individual who is requesting the photo to find out the location. I have an index of existing tombstones that some nice ladies did for the Bay County GENWEB but that's for the old St. Pats where most burials are from the early 1900s. Sorry!
Michael doesn't appear in the tombstone index.

Hello Laurel, In updating some of my records this morning I see that you had taken a photo and placed it on the subject memorial. This marker is not that of Alta Darling. The photo is of Ethadelia Mable Darling, 81725474, who is my Aunt and is buried next to her parents, Leroy & Bernice Darling who's stone is to the right of her marker. Thanking you in advance, Ben

RE: Samuel Downing
No, they are not the same cemetery.

I'm not sure where I got the information for his burial in Peter Hoover Cemetery. I would guess it was because I was there and saw it. BUT, if there is another memorial with a photo of his headstone, etc. at the George Washington Hoover Cemetery it could be he is buried there. I don't know what I would do. I think I would keep both memorials active until I found out for 100% sure where he is buried. IF the person who has the other memorial has actually been to the GW Hoover Cemetery and taken the photo themselves.....?????
I'm a "show me" kind of person and need proof that a person is there. Unfortunately the Randolph Co. genweb site does not have a transcription of the graves at either of these cemeteries. You can always try to contact the management of the cemeteries to see if they have a list of who is buried there before you do anything. Let me know out of curiosity.
