Bio and Links
Bio Photo I live in Isabella County, Michigan - in the middle of the mitten!

I generally do not add the raw data from census records, death indices, and other documents in my memorials biographical section. I will use information in the records to update birth and death dates and places, names and link family members.

Although Find a Grave allows records such as death certificates or military documents to be uploaded on the memorial pages, I would prefer you not upload them if they are findable online. It is important to leave that space available for items like photos of the person and their marker. The information found on these documents can be summarized in the biography. It is nice to open a memorial and find a cemetery photo, marker photo, or even a personal picture.

When requesting a transfer please use the edit tab and be sure to include your Find-A-Grave number.

Please feel free to use my pictures on your family tree with appropriate credit to Curtiss48858 on Find-A-Grave. Thanks!

Jesse and Rueben Mecum headstone
Good Morning, Thank-you for taking a picture of their headstones. I was there this last summer for that very reason. But alas, I arrived at the cemetery, too, late. That was my only option; as I live in California and had only one day to go around and take pictures of Mecum graves in Michigan. Again, thank-you for doing that.

Thank you so much for the edits for St. Andrew's Cemetery in Saginaw, MI. I especially appreciate the Baby Ludwig info. I grew up living by the twins: Dean and Dale Ludwig.
I appreciate your help!

Thank you so much for the headstone photographs. Your efforts are very appreciated as I probably would not have seen them otherwise.

RE: Thomas & Louisa Spicer photo
Hi Heather, Please do use any of my photos, I Love to share. I have been meaning to contact you for quite a while now, because I've seen your postings and knew that there was a connection. In fact I stole some of your photos before I read the rules. We should compare notes. We may be able to help each other with our trees. Would you like me to send my "Ancestry" tree to you? Thomas & Louisa are my Great-Great Grandparents. The photo (and many others) came down to me from my Grandmother, Helen Marie (Spicer) Peters. Take Care, Chuck Brandon #48002728.

Cathy Taylor website
Good morning Heather!
Yes, the website is actually a link from the Pere Marquette Library in Clare. It is a direct link to the Clark Historical Library at Central Michigan University. Central has been archiving newspapers for quite some time now and they are all available on line and free of charge. Just go to the Pere Marquette District Library site and click on the little brown Links tab. Then, under Genealogy, there are about a dozen hyperlinks. Just click one of the Clark Historical Library ones and you're good to go. They have the old Clare Sentinel Newspaper digitized from about 1870 to 1999. How cool is that!!?!!
Take care and stay warm,

P.S.- Can't wait for all of this nasty winter weather to go away so I can get out of the house and back into the cemeteries!!!!

RE: Christian Crummel
Hello Heather !

Thank you so much for finding the missing information on Christopher "Christian" Crummel. You are a wonderful detective ! And thanks for introducing me to that website I never heard of that site before. I've just been using which is also an awesome website !

I searched Christopher's name in them Cemeteries you mentioned but wasn't able to find him listed on this findagrave site but I do already have a Memorial for him on here but it doesn't have a Cemetery listed because I never knew where he was buried. His Find A Grave Memorial number is 104479210. I updated the death date for him on his Memorial. I looked for Isabella Township in Isabella County but wasn't able to find it listed. Maybe the name of town changed ? So for now I left it at Mount Pleasant as death place.

It's awesome that you narrowed down the cemetery possibilities to 3 in one town. That is a really big help ! If you could find out which one it is for sure that would be awesome too ! I don't know if he has a gravestone but if he does it would be awesome to have a nice picture of it posted on his Memorial. If not it would still be just as neat to know where he is, plot #, location, etc.

Okay thanks again for your help ! Have a wonderful day Heather !

Nate :)
