RE: Belle Downie Yes, Christine Rose and Belle Downie were sisters. Their father David Downie died in Buffalo, NY in 1922 and the death notice stated that he would be buried in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I am trying to find a record of his burial in Grand Rapids.
Thank you for the photo of Belle Downie's grave marker. There is some misinformation on her bio. One is that her father was David Downie, Sr.(my great grandfather) and her mother is not Fina H. Downie, but is Margaret McKinnon Downie, born in 1842 and died in 1892. Belle's brother (my GF) was David Downie, Jr. Tina R.(Christina) was Belle's sister. Is there any way to correct this information?
I also believe that Belle committed suicide but cannot find proof except for family lore.
re: Daniel, Amelia and John Dailey Hi Sarah Jane, thanks for the grave pics for Daniel and Amelia Dailey and for checking on John Dailey and reporting that no gravestone was found. I have asked the owner to put a note in the bio to that effect. Thanks again, donna white

RE: Caroline Schipper I'm not to sure where she is buried to be honest she died 1923 and she could well be buried somewhere else. Looks like more digging for me. Bless you again for all that you do for those finding long lost family.
