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.

Jerry Feagles
I got the burial info from

According to his death certificate Charles J Feagles died 9 June 1929 in Bear Creek of Mitral insufficiency. He was 53 y, 1 m, 12 d old. Other records all seem to have him as Jerry.

"Catherine Feagles" death certificate 17 June 1922 had as cause of death "child died in uterus poisoning mother" I deleted the memorial I had for her.

At the time I looked at the death certificates I did not look for or record place of burial.

Mt Olivet photo requests
On Mt. Olivet's home page there is a note telling everyone that they can find the burial location before submitting photo request. See if it works for you.

Hi Jana, I haven't been in Saint Francis Cemetery in Petoskey. I remember the day I went Cross Village and finding the cemeteries where I took the pictures that day. Mary

RE: Harbor area cemeteries
Jana, Glad to hear that you are doing well. I would like to make a trip up north sometime but I dont see that happening anytime soon.

If you make it to Lakeview Cemetry in Harbor Springs, there are five (5) company K soldiers buried there. All have stones. I do not have my own photos - but have used ones that others have shared. I can look up their names but they are all supposed to buried together in the same location. Can you photograph these for me?

Names coming in 2nd message.
