Mt. Kelly requests
I live 1 block from this cemetery in Dearborn, MI. I spent about an hour the other day in search of head stones for your requests. While there were a handful of unreadable/erdoed markers, I could not complete any of your requests.

Thanks Jim! I didn't realize that when I first contacted you about the children's correct names that I was contacting my cousin. How are you? Coming up on Mom's one year anniversary of her passing.

Mary (McCormick) McIntosh Birth Year
Just checked the Michigan, Death Records 1867-1950 for Mrs. Mary McIntosh putting her death at 31 July 1913, her birthday as 31 July 1845 and her age at 68 years old. As usual other Censuses estimate her birth year as 1846. Thus the confusion.

Hi Jim, my husband and I were at Great Lakes Nation Cemetery today. My parents are there. I tried to do your photo request for Vincent, but found out that he does not have a headstone. I took photos of your Grandparent's graves with the Christmas wreaths. The cemetery will be removing the wreaths next weekend. It is very beautiful there with all the wreaths. This spring, I may be able to do some of your other photo requests. Take care and best wishes always.

RE: Millard Johnson and Mrs. Jeanette Bujel
Hi. :)

Mr. Johnson's photo has been added.

There's only a few weeks left in stone placement in the cemeteries so Mrs. Jeanette Bujel may not get a stone until next spring.

Her grave is close to some family and friends, so I'll try and keep an eye on things.

Mary Johnson and Husband
Hi. :)

I fulfilled your request for Mrs. Mary Johnson at St. Hedwig Cemetery in Dearborn Heights, Michigan.

Next to her stone was the following:

Millard R. Johnson
May 28, 1940 June 26, 2013

If you start his memorial, I can add his photo.

Please, let me know how you'd like to proceed.

Thanks. :)

Ledford & Piotrowski - St. Hedwig
Good Afternoon.

As you've noticed, Mr. and Mrs. Ledford do not have stones in place (sincere apologies for this delayed response).

Mrs. Virginia Piotrowski's stone was in place and her memorial has been updated.

Sincere Regards.

RE: Monica Misiak - Wyroba

Can't find her parents burial information anywhere.

That's why I wondered if you would be willing to copy and paste the information to her memorial.

Thank you for asking. If I find them I will make an edit for parents.

Thank you Pat

RE: Anthony Assenmacher
Hi Jim,
Anthony is his name and the grave marker is wrong on the spelling of his name and also his date of death. If you check Family Search you will see it listed under the spelling Ossenmaoohie with the date of death as 29 Jan 1922 in Bad Axe. The newspaper death notice is correct.

RE: Josephine Osmialowski

Memorial complete. Sincerely appreciate all your help w/ these memorials.

A genuine pleasure "doing business" w/ you. It's refreshing to have F-A-G members, like yourself, that appreciate the gravity of this site. The grounds w/in the cemetery walls are consecrated and it behooves everyone @ this site to recognize that; this isn't a "numbers game".

Additionally, have encountered numerous memorials flowered by you; quite an impressive and admirable library of "holy cards". Family members happening upon this site, will be genuinely touched by your respect and dignity of their loved ones. You're to be commended.

Sincere Regards.

Osmialowski Family @ St. Hedwig, Dearborn Heights.
Good Evening.

The following stone was next to Mr. John Osmialowski at St. Hedwig:

Josephine Osmialowski

Feb. 18, 1914 - Nov. 30, 2006


Upon your origination of her memorial, the photo can be added.

Sincere Regards.

Did you supply the location for Mr. Osmialowski? Sincere gratitude for that information.

RE: Walter Grebinski et. al.
Good Afternoon.

Transfer complete of 4 Grebinski family members buried @ Our Lady of Hope. (2 additional members located by photo requestor of Mr. Walter Grebinski.)

Mr. & Mrs. John Grebinski were in close proximity to Mr. & Mrs. Walter Grebinski; however, cannot find any corroborating evidence to a family link. (There's a Vincent Grebinski buried in Florida on Find A Grave's data base - uncertain if he's the child of Mr. & Mrs. Walter Grebinski.)

Sincerest apologies for this lack of information; hopefully, you have more family information and can fill in the blanks.

FYI: Mrs. Virginia Piotrowski does not yet, have a stone. Her final resting place is w/in my usual St. Hedwig route; therefore, a stone placement should be noted and her memorial updated, at that time. Will post w/ any progress.

Sincere Regards.

RE: Christine Osmialowski et. al.
Good Day.

Mr. and Mrs. Osmialowski's photos have been added to their respective memorials and the grave site photo has been added to Mr. and Mrs. Frank Swastek's memorials (the office confirmed they share the plot).

There was no John Osmialowski near the Leo Osmialowski grave site, so that photo may be delayed until next weekend (if you get a location before that time frame, just drop a reply).

Per your edit for Mr. Walter Grebinski at Our Lady of Hope: would you like the transfer? My preference is for these memorials to be w/ those that knew the individuals if family isn't available.

Please, advise.

Sincere Regards.

RE: Swastek Family additions
Good Evening, Young Man.

We have two issues:

- It appears as though Mr. & Mrs. Swastek do not yet have a stone in place. While this was not confirmed through the office, the surrounding stones confirmed the location. Additionally, the site indicated a cremation had taken place which the office confirmed. As a firm believer even unmarked graves deserve a photo, a photo will be provided, tomorrow (today's rain hampered all progress).

- We may need to transfer Mr. Leo Osmialowski's memorial to St. Hedwig from Holy Sepulchre. Again, the rain hampered most efforts, but the photo provided seems to indicate he's buried @ St. Hedwig. Rest assured, the stone will be cleaned and a better photo provided; my concern was to deter others from looking for a grave that probably isn't @ Holy Sepulchre.

- A photo of Mrs. Osmialowski can also be provided upon your origination of her memorial @ St. Hedwig. Her information is as follows:

Christine M. Osmialowski


March 5, 1933 - July 24, 2009

Will update you, tomorrow, on my progress.

Sincere Regards.

RE: Swastek Family additions
Good Morning.

The Swastek Family of Piotr, Mary and Jan have completed photos.

Your additions of Frank and Irene did not go unnoticed; however, the photos may have to wait for the weekend. (A short walk-through near the Piotr final resting place was unsuccessful and alas, the office hours have been reduced to 9 am opening.)

Will update you as soon as possible.

Sincere Regards.

RE: Swastek family memorials

Deepest apologies for the delay. The photos were taken on an overcast day and do not due the monument justice.

The Swastek gentlemen should have their photos by tomorrow and Mrs. Swastek's photos will be updated as well (photo quality very poor).

Will advise upon completion.

Sincere Regards.

Swastek Family - St. Hedwig, Dearborn Heights

Your photo request for Mrs. Mary Swastek revealed the following names not included in the Find A Grave database:

Piotr Swastek
1891 - 1951

Jan P. Swastek
1914 - 1970

Upon your origination of the above two memorials, the photos can be added.

Please, advise.

Sincere Regards.
