***** IMPORTANT NOTICE: FIND-A-GRAVE has just been purchased by Ancestry.com, which is a site with a hefty membership fee. I have contributed photos and information to this site out of love and joy, NOT for Ancestry's profit. I hereby announce that I claim copyright on ALL the photos I have contributed to this site, and you may ONLY duplicate them or use them on your site with my permission. I will be migrating to another site in the near future. ***** I have always loved old cemeteries, even as a kid. I find that they provide a profound sense of the eternal. I love volunteering because of the blessing I received when Glenn Russell put a record of my nearly-lost ancestors, Patrick and Margaret Malone. Having those dates - with the name and date of their son John Malone, opened a floodgate of documents and links! (THANKS AGAIN, GLENN!!) Recently I developed an interest in capturing stones with pictures of the deceased; I find these are a favorite target of vandals and we must save them while we can. I live in Northern Indiana and can shoot pics in South Bend, Mishawaka, and nearby areas. Please feel free to use any of my photos. No need to credit me but please do credit Find a Grave. Happy to transfer upon request anyone who is not in my ancestral line.
Interests: Barrett, Malone (New York, New England, Ireland and England) Brabant (Quebec, New England, New York) Webster, Foglesong, Baxter (Indiana) Baxter, Bennet (Ohio)
Marguerite DeGroote Hi, That is very kind, but it really is not necessary. I only knew Miss DeGroote, a lovely person, as my sophomore English teacher at Central. I did not know her family. My two grandmothers, my mother, and I were all "obituary collectors", so when I started working on "Find a Grave", I went through our collection and entered the obits of everyone I found. It was a good feeling to be able to do something for those who had done so much for me - my teachers! I have no information about Catherine's maiden name - that came from jcrow - but I can see that her middle initial is A. on the stone. I think he had asked you to add the A. and the maiden name. When he contacted me to add Catherine and Felix as Marguerite's parents, I balked until we had a chance to investigate the two different spellings of the surname. He suggested I contact you. There are five individuals at Cedar Grove whose surname is spelled, De Groote, but all the evidence shows that Marguerite's family (that includes her parents) uses the surname, DeGroote, one word. There is a longer list of those with the surname spelled, DeGroote. IF this is all one family, I imagine all would use DeGroote, but their stones would probably make that clear.
RE: Anthony Yandl Not a relative. I would post the photo myself but the memorial has reached the maximum limit on photos. If you wish to delete one I will add the photo I have of him in his Marine uniform.
