Am so glad I came across this site. It has lead me to relatives I never see or knew about, new friends and many I will never see.

Some people don't understand how much gratitude it gives someone to research their roots. Or they are skeptical if certain people are truly related. Until you research, find records etc. you will never know so do not pass judgement.

I recommend everyone to get involved in genealogy as you will be amazed at what you can find about your roots and where it will lead you. It is a history lesson in itself..

To my cousin's Maurice and Kay, I am very thankful to have found you. You have been a tremendous help with our family history and I am very grateful.

I am also very interested in my Mother's side of the family. The Mennonite's and our distant Amish families. I am very intrigued in their ways and lifestyles.

Would love to find more about our Polish root's. I have very little information regarding my paternal grandmother's family: Rose Theresa Lechowicz. All the searches I have made become road blocks. Possibly due to the uprisings, wars etc., I am thinking maybe many of the documents were destroyed?

Same with our "Dutch" roots, the Alder's. Henry being my 2nd great grandfather and his brother John my great grand uncle. From Netherlands/Holland and lived in Kent County, Michigan.

Surnames I am interested in are:

My Father's side:

De La Chaumette, DeLashmutt, DeLashmut, DeLashmitt, DeLashmit, DeLashmett, DeLashmet, Lashmit, Lashmitt, Lashmett, Lashmet, Lashmutt, Lechowicz, Wiklanski, Gibes, Kozinksi, Alders, Rominger, Stuart (Stewart), Padgett, Nelson, Palazy, Zulkiewski (Zulski)...

My Mother's side:

Burkhart (Burckhart, Burkhard, Burckhard, Burkhardt) Snider (Snyder, Schneider) Brubacher (Brubaker, Brubacker, Bruppacher) Eby, Lehman, Gehman, Bontrager, Weber, Weaver, Detweiler, Gingrich & Gingerich, Wenger, Sherk, Gerber, Hostetter, Herr, Yoder, Bauman/Bowman, Martin, Good/Gut, Hershey (Yes I am distant cousin of "Milton Snavely Hershey")...

Would love to hear from more relatives!!

Last of all, if you don't see certain information on a memorial or an obit that doesn't show certain living relatives, it is because of privacy laws. Unless I have your permission I cannot add your name.

My friend Connie Larson gave me the information and the tombstone picture.

I called her and she is very excited about the additional information.

She does Native American Civil War research.

Thank you,

RE: 132791266 Niabi Sobleski
I did a quick Find-A-Grave for all the Sobleski graves in the county and discovered a curious result. All of the others with that last name are in St. Francis Cemetery about 1/2 a mile away. I could not help wonder why she is the only Sobleski buried in Greenwood? An additional look into Emmet county's records did not give any help to finding an answer to this perplexing question.

RE: 132791266 Niabi Sobleski
Early this morning I posted a photo of the area where her marker would be located if there was a marker. Using the plot location I double checked some of the other nearby markers to sure I was looking in the right area. For whatever reason there is no marker for her.

RE: 36362367 Jeremiah Alward
Based on info I was locating while at the library (ancestry--family trees). His was born in 1852. Hope this helps.

RE: Lashmit/Petoskey
Dear Jana,

Sorry it took so long to get back with you, but I've been trying to research your question.

I also looked at the Emmet County death records, Greenwood Cemetery online records, LDS records and called the Emmet County Clerk Office. I found:
one female child d. 10/19/39
one female child d. 6/12/43
one female child d. 6/12/43
one infant child d. 10/11/43

The Emmet County Clerk's office tells me that although there is one female child d. 6/12/43, listed in Liber 5, Folio 4, and one female child d. 6/12/43, listed in Liber 5,Folio 10 they are not necessarily two different children. It will require a trip to the clerk's office to look them up as they will not do any research for you.

Also, the online Emmet County records does not show one female child d. 10/11/43, but Greenwood Cemetery records does. I'm guessing there were a set of twins, one died at birth and one at four months.

I know this doesn't clear anything up. To make matters worse, they are buried at St. Francis Xavier Cemetery. The church is not very forthcoming when it comes to handing over burial records. I was raised Catholic (from this church) and have struggled to get family records from them. My "in", Fr. Hegener, passed away in 2009.

I have lots of other Lashmit stuff as my husband's aunt Kathryn was married to Ellis Lashmit. Let me know if you straighten this mystery out or would like any other info I might have.

Joseph Hoffman
I agree with your findings on Joseph. I just posted his obituary and it states he married Elizabeth in 1881. So I updated that in his bio.
You are welcome to copy his obituary for any use.
