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.

Thank you
Hi, Laurel,

I just wanted to thank you so very much for all of your photos! I've been finding many of my family members in Portland Cemetery with marker photos that you took. I really appreciate your time and effort in taking and posting all of these photos. It is really fantastic to find not only a memorial, but a photo as well.

I greatly appreciate your work, and I expect a lot of other folks do as well, regardless of whether or not they let you know.

Take care, and have a happy and safe holiday season.

Rosetta Belcher
In Feb. 2001 I was e-mailing a man named Gary whose great-great grandfather was Hiram E. Belcher. He verified my dates. He said that Rosetta was married to Charles Wallace Dec 4, 1884 in Ionia, MI. He asked what her name was on the death certificate, probably because of the supposed marriage. I am looking for her death certificate. I think the man has since past away but I don't know for sure.

Peter Fuchs grave not found
Thank you for looking for Peter's grave. I am wondering if Peter's last name may have been changed to Fox. I was hoping to clear up the possible name change by seeing his grave stone. Peter's sons John,Joseph, and Michael used the sir name Fox. There is an obit for P.M.Fox - The Ionia Daily Standard, Saturday, July 25, 1891 P.M. Fox, one of the pioneers of this county, died last evening at his residence in Ionia township at the age of 79 years. The funeral will be from the residence on Tuesday afternoon at 2 o’clock.

John Smith
Thank you so much for your effort in looking for John Smith's marker. The cemetery records I found showed that he shared a stone with A.M. Smith. A photo of her side of the stone (it looks like a square stone) is on her memorial page. If you happen to go out again maybe you can take a look there. Or maybe you already saw it and the record was not accurate. In any case thanks again for your time.
