Bio and Links
Bio Photo My family lineage is through George Steel(e) who settled in Bedford County, PA. That lineage is George, Philip, George, George, Moses, Charles Edward and Paul Victor Steele. My family moved to Holmes Co, Ohio and Moses and many family members migrated to St. Joseph Co, Indiana where most of us have stayed in the general area. I have 3 grown children, 4 grandchildren and 4 step-grandchildren.

I am fairly new to deep genealogy but have always wanted to know who my family was.

I am willing to take photos of local cemeteries if requested. I like to take photos of the area where the interment is to give the viewer a little better sense of the tranquility of the cemetery. I am a member of Friends of Silverbrook, the city owned cemetery here in Niles. We do restoration work on many of the headstones at the cemetery. Take some time to visit the website.

David Vanderhoof(b) 1854 is the son of Livona (b) 1816 "not her husband". She is 38 years older than David. Please correct.

Betty Frank
RE: Elizabeth Mack
She is a shirt tail relative but you can still maintain her memorial until a closer relative comes along. Since Find A Grave has removed my scanned obits that were added as pictures, I'm now going through my parent's albums to type the obits for the bio sections. What a chore. Scanned obits are more accurate and easier to add... Thanks for your help with my project;)

I am related to most of Allegan county, either thru birth or marriages. We may end up being related someplace along the lines.

RE: Charles Cook
How funny! I live to connect family members. Regardless of who did the memorial, connecting family together is important. Thanks to you, the Cook family is more complete.
Thank you. I do appreciate your help.

RE: Charles Cook
Thank you for the transfer offer, but the relationship is so distant... son of sister of wife of....
Another Find A Grave member had questioned how an Allett had married an Allett, and been the daughter of an Allett. So, I did "edits" to connect the family together. And in the process, asked for vital records "edits".
Charles' mother was an Allett, and included in my connections.
No need to transfer.

RE: Dunivan in Oak Ridge
Yes I did add a memorial for Donald, but it was from an published obit.
Check with the others who added the tombstone photos. I have never been to the cemetery. Maybe one of them could run over there for you.

Janet, thank you for Carrie's obit. The newspaper copy I have is not easily read, so I appreciate a nice clean write-up.
