RE: photo request, Donald Joseph Wood
Thanks for all your great work! It is much appreciated! I have it on a weak source (former in-law) that he was interred there, I will remove the photo request and check some of the other cemeteries you have mentioned.

Hi Jim,

Thanks for searching again -you did also in October 2014- for Cornelia's gravestone, but again without result, even at her to me known spot, so I cancelled now my photo request.

RE: Hoven, Grave Marker

I'm sorry that I don't know how to add/move memorials on the FindaGrave site. If you could give me some step-by-step directions, I'd be happy to attempt this request.

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

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 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

I like that; will try and follow, as it makes sense.

Thank you so much for your help with the correct burial place, since most of her family lives in Calif, they and I needed your help.
