Bio and Links
I grew up in Dearborn, Michigan; still living in Michigan (Durand, the railroad capitol of Shiawassee county). I was born with an insatiable curiosity about my family history which was completely unslaked until one very lucky day a genealogist from the Quebec branch, or perhaps I should say Quebec root, of the family forwarded a history of our family all the way from Bartholemei the blacksmith and his new bride Marthe Quitel, one of Les Filles du Roi, in the 17th century.

Since joining FAG I've gained an interest in my local cemetery, Lovejoy, and its historical context in Shiawassee county.

Re: Dexter MORRIS grave
Thank you so much for searching for his gravesite. I remember going to Newburg many years ago and could not find it, but I thought perhaps I had just overlooked it. Since his obituary and death certificate both list that he is buried there (as are many other family members), I will assume he is there in an unmarked grave. I really appreciate all of the time and effort you took to attempt to obtain a photo.

RE: Rachael Lindley marker
Thanks....I'll go ahead and re-request her photo with more info in the (!) note. Hopefully someone will read it and be inclined to "dig" her up and if not, you can do so on your own schedule in the next few years if you wish.

Rachael Lindley marker
Thanks for looking for Rachael's marker. There is a listing online at the Fenton Historical Society's website for the Newburg Cemetery []
and Rachael is listed there buried between Erastus Loomis and Julia Post and a notation that her stone is broken. If you are inclined to look into this further and take a long screwdriver (to push into the ground for a hard surface) and shovel (to unearth the stone), you may be rewarded with the broken parts of her marker. You'll also need water, soft brush and rag to clean off the dirt. If you are not inclined, that is fine, but let me know... as I will re-request her photo with more info on "digging" her up.

Yeah! Thank you Joe, these have made my day yet again! You have a magic touch when it comes to helping others on their quest for more family history items! Helen

Hi Joe, I was thrilled to hear from you and to see the awesome images that you posted to my requests for Dyer Rathbone, Mary Rathbone and Anna Rathbone Tillman's memorials! How sad to see the condition of Anna's headstone as it has cracked and crumbled over the years. It is nice to see how incredibly green the grass still is there in Michigan, hopefully the weather was perfect as you were cemetery crawling for my requests. These were such gifts for me and they are greatly appreciated along with the e-mail with your update. Incidentally, I noticed this evening that another memorial exists for a Diar Rathbone, wouldn't you know that I created a duplicate by accident? So will have to see if the administrators at Find.a.Grave will somehow combine the two. Thanks so very much! Helen
