Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Sheila Burgess Garrett, I was born and raised in Vicksburg, Michigan. I now reside in Olivet, Michigan with my husband Mike of 40 years. I was elected the Mayor of Galesburg in November of 2010, becoming the first female Mayor of this City, and relinquesed my title in November 2012 due to some major health issues I was going through. My husband and I moved in with my youngest son and daughter-in-law in December of 2012 - now I have lots of Grave hunting time..
I love doing Genealogy, I want to leave my two sons and 7 Grand children with lots of info pertaining to there ancestors.
My families include the following,
Burgess, Hallam, Pace, Eagley, Cooper, Hodgman, Kaiser, Stillwell, Stockwell, Horton, Garrett, Robbins, Handy, Wright, and a few others..
And yes I have probably missed a few - and if I can help anyone please send an e-mail..
Thanks for all who have shared before me..

Thank you
Thank you so very much for the photo of the headstone of Chloe Loomis Curtis. One of her daughters, Ellen Ruth, married John C Munn. After she passed after having 10 children he married her sister, Clara/Clarissa.

Olive Hall Henton

I think I know what happened... you took a photo of the gravestone for Olive - wife of Seth R. Henton. Her maiden name is Hall... Olive (Hall) Henton, then you added it to two different Olive Henton memorials. That photo belongs to the memorial for Olive (Hall) Henton, but does not belong to Olive P. (Foster) Henton who is the wife of Thomas Henton. Seth R. Henton & Thomas Henton are brothers and both were married to women by the name of Olive.

Seth R. Henton also has a granddaughter by the name of Olive E. (Henton) Edgett. her fathers name is Willis Seth Henton. All of these relatives are buried in Lawler Cemetery and it gets confusing sometimes.

Please remove the gravestone photo from the memorial for Olive P. (Foster) Henton and leave the photo on the memorial for Olive (Hall) Henton.

Thank you,
Don Babas

The picture on the memorial is for B.H. Shepard. Would you move it to the correct memorial please?

I respectfully request verification on Find A Grave Memorial# 20384864, since the headstone photo provided reads: MARY LENDRA. The balance of the stone is illegible in this photo.
