Bio and Links
I grew up in 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 unrequited 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.

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

Tilley surname
I was wondering if you are related to this Tilley family in Rising Sun, Ind.

I am looking for this family as the father John F. was born in Ky. and would love to share family information.

Thanks

RE: Smith/Bates/Roman @ new St. Marcus
Joe,
No worries about the Georgia and Irwin. You did the hard work, you got the locations. I was able to get the maps, but they don't want to give locations anymore, except to family.
If you request they may send you a copy of the burial card. They are pretty good with that for family.

Happy hunting,
Kathie

Smith/Bates/Roman @ new St. Marcus
Hello,
I posted pictures for all. However, there are no individual stones for the Roman's. That shot is just a lot shot, including all the current stones.
I included one Mathilda's and put a caption that the stone is located at New St. Marcus, not at Hillcrest Abbey. It appears that she was cremated and never moved over to New St. Marcus, which is odd because NSM does cremations. But I do not know for sure, about the cremation.

RE: John Thompson
I am related to John Thompson in Oaklawn in N. manchester. I was hunting up the memorial and seen the several others, just happened to see the same dates on two and it picked my interest.
I spent several hours on finding the correct John Thompson that was my g g grandfather. Wish those people would all have middle initials at least, would have made things essier.

John Thompson
Memorial 116976820 seems to be a duplicate of 31720615. I see nothing to indicate that this John Thompson is buried in Lagro. The article states he lived in Peru. Maybe you can move the memorial to a graveyard in Peru. You should transfer it back to the creater and instruct them to put their information on the other memorial. There is no headstone on it either to indicate proper location. Maybe it should be merged into the other one.

Hi, Joe,

THANK YOU!!!

I appreciate so very much your taking a photo of Gladys' marker and letting me know where she is. You have made it possible to bring this little girl home to her family. You have no idea how happy you have made me. My hope is that, someday, someone will return the favor tenfold to you.

Thank you, again, and take care.

Kathy
