George SPOOLSTRA
Jim, I searched for the headstone of George SPOOLSTRA in the designated lot at Oakhill Cemetery North but came up blank. Section "N" is reputed for its many missing headstones. I searched throughout the general area using a map of the cemetery and the plot taken from http://cemetery.grcity.us/

That website does not list any other SPOOLSTRA's with that spelling; however, there are several SPOELSTRA's.

In fact, this past summer while uncovering lost/missing headstones from the Permit Grounds of Oakhill Cemetery South, I uncovered (2) SPOELSTRA's: Hendrik and Henderika.

You had requested obituaries. If you browse to http://wmgs.org/ and examine the databases under West Michigan Newspapers you will find an obituary listed for George SPOELSTRA, Tues. 19 June 1928, GR Herald, page 3.

You can order the obituary through the given link.

Hope that helps!

Sorry that has taken me so long to answer. As to your Find A Grave message written in June, about Grace J 1833.

Gerrit Vroegh Sr 1903-1981 (according to his TS) was married to Maude Swets 1906-1956

Gerrit Vroegh, Jr 1929-1956 was married to Grace J 1933 (according to his TS & The South Suburban Genealogy & Historical Society, Cemetery Readings)

I hope that I have not already answered this. I can't remember, that's what happens when you get old!

Later, Jo

You posted a request for a photo of a headstone in this cemetery. If you can provide the grave location I can look for the headstone. I have the detailed maps of the cemetery. Others have had success requesting this info online at: http://www.dignitymemorial.com/en-us/about-us/contact-us.page

RE: Photo
You are quite welcome. There was no request, but I noticed an August and Tena Spoolstra buried next to Marcia, so I added them as well. :-)
