Bio and Links
Bio Photo "I will show you fear in a handful of dust." T.S. Eliot

We are not so much afraid of dying, as we are of no one remembering we existed at all.

We only walk this earth because of the people before us. Every name is a memory to a life, not just a branch in a tree. Sometimes all that echoes through time is a name, a date, a relationship, a headstone. But bringing those things together here is remembering the person who lived, and I am proud to be a part of this community of volunteers who spend their free time to send the message "you have not been forgotten"

Still active as of August 2014. If you have any information to add to any memorials I have created please let me know but use the EDIT- SUGGEST A CORRECTION feature. Please also use this feature when inquiring about a specific memorial, the comments section below is not helpful in directing me with a link to see what you are talking about.

If you would like any of the photos I have taken for your own family tree, you are welcome to them.

RE: Maple Grove Cemetery
I finally had an opportunity to search Corbin Washington Darnes. I found his obituary and it lists that he is buried in the Cantril Cemetery. The only Cantril Cemetery I know of is Maple Grove; however, he is not listed as buried there. I also checked to see if his daughter, Mrs. Charles VanDyke, was buried at the cemetery and there was no listing. I am going to contact the church where Corbin's funeral was held and see if there are still records.
I will keep in contact with you.
Let me know if you would like a copy of the obituary.

Re: Martha & Ruby,
Sorry! I hit the Enter hit with a off finger.
Regarding Martha & Ruby. I don't think Saginaw, Michgian Newspaper has anything on these two names. Looks like one would have to take a Drive to the Bay City Library & dig in their! I've never done any Actual Obituary pull-ups in their Library. Only have attended a couple of Genealogical meetings. Bay City is about a half hour drive from Saginaw.

Not sure! when I can get over their... Though, need to learn more of their system. Bay City seems not have much info on Find A Grave. Most who I have met probally are waiting for Saginaw to come more online.

I do get some News Flyers... Where they have a System. Where one can order/purchased some Detailed information on some members Cemetery Walks/Transcription.

For me & probally yourself. I like the Full text of Obituaries.

Regarding the Saginaw Public Library at: guess they are only scaling back normal hours due to Decreasing revenues.

RE: Norman's

I'm do have some easy access to some Michigan Obituaries. First, I'm pretty much the Main Obituary provider of anyone who might have been published in the Gladwin County Record. Use to live in Midland, MI at one time & several of us have link several families in Gladwin Co., into the Early Pioneers of Midland Co., MI. Now as of late April I find myself... Living in Saginaw, MI & been Walking the Roselawn Cemetery & trying to get a lot of those folks buried posted on Find A Grave. My hope was: Stitch a Seam thru Saginaw in both Roselawn & Forest Lawn Cemeteries & this would generate more increase connections in the Mid-Michigan Region & beyond. Midland, Bay & Saginaw, Michigan.

Note: I've been photographing Headstone in Roselawn & checking all the information with Saginaw Online Obituary Index at:

Since, Saginaw wasn't my Normal hometown & is a much Bigger City vs. Beaverton. I seem to always need to have my GPS device when trying to Venture out/exploring. Also! not sure what might be going on. Sounds like my Mother said the Saginaw Library might closed as a Public Library? I don't catch the News like she does & not sure what was televised. I do live Close to the Hoyt Library. Might need to take a Drive over & get filled in.

If you can provide me with the Names, Obituary Index & or the Mailing Address to the Elmwood Cemetery. Perhaps I could go Investigate. Some of the Cemeteries don't have a Bldg on Grounds. Like Forest Lawn. In order to look up information on a Burial. Not sure what is permitted? Best way to do things is actually taking that Camera out & just hit all the Stones or a Section or two. Luckily Roselawn is a short drive though, much Bigger than I've been use too. :)

RE: Re: Loren Louis & Juanita (Walley) McKimmy
Dear Erin,

Yes, I would love some assistance/boots on the ground out their in Oregon. If you would email me at: so I can mail you some of the Living descendant's of Loren McKimmy. Note: He was married twice... It would be greatly appreciated. One daughter Deborah Jo (McKimmy) Hawes died on 7 August 2013 & like you said: Don't see much obituaries or where she might be buried.

I'll have to have my Mother try & reach out to the family. Recently one of the daughters attended a 50th Alumni Reunion. This was the only way. We knew they all had passed on recently. Tom

RE: Carlisle's @ Grandview
Forgot to add that the reason I manage so many memorials is that I took over three member's memorials when either they weren't interested anymore or just quit. These members controlled cemeteries where my relatives are buried. As you know it can be a chore sometimes to keep up with all the corrections/additions requested.
