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.

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.

Exactly where is Cross Village Township Cemetery?
I would like to stop by sometime to photograph her headstone. Or, if you are in the area and could do it that would be great.
Thanks for any help. Donald Crower

RE: Arlyle
Thank you Jana - it was a shock to be sure. She was doing great and all of a sudden she was gone. I am sure going to miss her - she was a wonderful gal.

Thank you for the edits on Skoczylas apparently got him mix up with my John Skoczylas in Lansing so most likely not related to me

RE: Arthur Lee Sobleskey
Hi Jana,

I transferred a memorial to you back in April and never responded to you. So sorry! You asked how long I lived in the Petoskey area... I was born in Cheboygan, but moved to Petoskey a small child and went to school there through graduation. I lived there until about 10 years after that. I have lived in Illinois for 10 years now.

He has second memorial 10803015 in the Maple Hill Cemetery in Medina, Ohio. The info I find is not much different than yours. Which one is actually buried at is a good question for which I have no answer. My guess is that the daughters, Julia and Frances may have had a headstone made and or the Royston family did since George's in Maple Hill is of the same type. If they had the body moved then the old headstone in Starr cemetery was left behind.
Challenge indeed!

Updated the sites as best as I could. Did find Mamie's obit which cleared up some things and did find that she had a son named Wayne Wheelock Carson, so I connected Wayne's to her. No family connection so hadn't dug much into this family. Until now that is.
Have a nice day.
