Bio Photo
I am an active genealogist (Polish/German & Irish) from Buffalo (Cheektowaga) New York. Member of WNYGS,PGSNYS & BIGS. Recently completed the restoration of our first settlers graveyard, the Bennet Family cemetery. Currently, I am restoring and transcribing the Polish National Catholic Church-Holy Mother of the Rosary Cathedral's cemetery on Dale Road, as all the early death records burned. In addition, I am recording the deaths that were buried in the abandoned community town (Union Road)cemetery in Cheektowaga, NY.

Calhoun County Home (Poor Farm)
The Death Certificates for the State of Michigan for years 1897 to 1947 are at the website "Seeking Michigan"..

The Calhoun County Home in Marengo Twp in Michigan, aka, Poor Farm, County Infirmary, Almshouse and ect,
It has had several names over the years.

It was started in 1849 and closed in the 1970"s. Over hundred years in Service...

The only records found, so far, are the death Certificate's stating of the deaths and burials at the Poor Farm.
This is how I got interested for the people in need of help.

All other records have disappeared.

Hoping some day to have the Cemetery investigated at the Poor Farm and have it actually listed. is a dream of mine. It is on private property now.

Trying to add identity to lost soles that have fallen between the cracks of history.

You are welcome, no I am not related, I am going thru the Death Certificates for Calhoun County and making sure everyone is recorded, very large project. (1897-1940)
My Special project is the County Farm in Marengo Twp in Calhoun County of Michigan.. I want "these" people to be recognized ,not as shame but as people. Some how all the records where destroyed and there a lot of lost soles that need to be unlost. ..

RE: ANDERSON requests
By destroyed I meant that it no longer exists. Apparently a previous owner of the land Beswick Cemetery was on, plowed over the stones and all that remains is a cornerstone. It's very sad to think someone would destroy a resting place for family members that have went on.

Sarah Thomas in Graceland
I have a photo of the lot you specified for Sarah. Unfortunately, there are six small headstones that are all unreadable. There is room for at least six more graves without markers. The cemetery can help determine if oe of the stones is for Sarah. I will past a photo. Regards, Bob

RE: Robert Hitzel photo
You're welcome...Interesting bio...I have to check out that cemetery as I have never noticed it and probably have driven by hundreds of times...When I see requests for photos at Holy Rosary I text the"caretaker"for plot info...that's not you, is it?
Seeing you're knowledgeable about Cheektowaga history do you happen to know who Dick Rd. is named after?...Thanks, Carol

Hi, that was back in April that I was asking for people to get section numbers. I live quite a ways from there and don't know when or if I will be going back. I sent the correction of where the plot is for her to update so if I can't get it, someone else may be able to.
