He is listed as being buried at Forest Hill in Houghton MI, Do you have information as to where at Forest Hill? He is my great grandfather. I assume there was no headstone.

RE: Carl A. Silfven
Anna Lydia Filpus Silfven was my great-grandfather's sister. Uno Konstant Filpus had six siters who immigrated to Michigan. I now have one left whose burial site is unknown. By the way, do you know that one of Carl Silfven's sisters perished in the sinking of the Titanic?

Edit for Theresa Arnsman
The edits you requested will be done.
I just visited your website and noticed your interest in the ROWE surname. I don't know if you are aware of the Rowe Cemetery, Allegan County, Michigan. The name Rowe and Roe are used in the same family. Hopefully you can use some of the information. Thank you for your work on Find A Grave.

RE: Bliss family photos
Hi there. No I am not working on the Bliss family genealogy. I found the photo in a box of old photos that belonged to a distant cousin who passed away. Fortunately the photo was clearly labeled with names. It's the only photo I have of them. Sorry. I do, however, work on other some other families from Allegan County, MI.

RE: Bliss family photos
Nice to hear from you Emily. I have only the one photo from the Bliss family. I don't believe they are related to my PULLENS in Allegan County, but the photo was found among possessions of a cousin who passed away. So I can only assume that the Bliss family must have been neighbors or friends of the Pullens.

So in answer to your question I do not have any family info to offer for your research. Sorry. If you give me your email through I will send you a full size scan of the photo.

Kurt O Krekel
My husband was a close friend of Kurt and Ortha Krekel. We stopped at the cemetery to visit their graves yesterday. Today when I checked to see if there were on Find A Grave, we found their listings. Kurt actually died in Elm River Twp., Houghton, Michigan at his home. For some unknown reason a lot of the folks who die in the western UP of Michigan have Wisconsin listed as their last state of residence.

Also, he is the only son of Otto and Charlotte Krekel who are buried in Flint, MI

St. Henry's
Is there any way I can talk you into going to St. Henry's Cemetery in Nisula to take a photo of my Granpa's marker. His memorial is # 94827038

There is already a photo, but it isn't clear. If you spray it with water or some other trick,maybe it will become legible. I would appreciate it so very very much.

Hiya Namida,

Buschell Headstone, Mt Calvary Cemtery
Thank you so much for taking the time to photograph and complete all the data entry for the Buschell headstone (Margaret and Frederick) in Mount Calvary Cemetery, Lake Linden. They were my grandparents, and an important part of my family tree and genealogy research. Living 12 hours away from Lake Linden makes it a bit difficult to do the hands on research that I'd like. You are great!

Thank you for the nice grave photo honoring Gerald George Lehman.

Thank you!
Thank you so much for the photos. Interesting her marker says Vilma. Her passport says Wilma. I wonder what my Great Grandmother's name really was..LOL
I'm trying to find a date of death so I can order her death certificate, can you tell me who I can contact to find out.
Thanks again for everything.

Isabell Herbert
I went to take the picture of Isabell Herbert's headstone today at Green Hills but she didn't have one. I left 2 pictures on her memorial page of the gravesite and the coordinate marker.

RE: Annie Hooper
There are a lot of Hooper's interred in that same cemetery in Grass Valley. Is this the same Hooper family that are Owner/morticians of "Hooper and Weaver Mortuary"? Was in Grass Valley, now in Nevada City, Ca.?

I walked a good part of the cemetary this morning and did not find Esther's grave. I will continue to look. Just wanted you to know that someone is on it. Cathy

I'm looking for any cousins from the Barkkari family originally from the U.P. and Finland. Last I saw of any family was at a familly reunion in 1987.

RE: James Rippa headstone photograph
You are very welcome. I took the kids for a walk in the cemetery after a trip to the dentist - great way to pass the 1/2 hour or so before she could have a very soft lunch :)

Viola May Moyle
I should have checked this before I added Viola's memorials, but I double checked the records for the Department of Veterans Affairs. I thought it was strange that they didn't have anything for Viola May Moyle. I did find her record under Viola May.

I then checked for a memorial for Viola May and found #37934901 - created by Barbara LaClaire on 6/4/09. So, I went ahead and added the photos to that memorial also. I don't know if you want to delete the new memorial and ask Barbara for a transfer. I will leave it up to you.

Take care,

Cecil A. Moyle
I posted the headstone photos for Cecil. Since there wasn't a memorial for his wife Viola May, I created one and added the photos. I've also added the relationship link for them and transferred her memorial to you.

Take care,
