RE: Samuel Geer
Thank you for adding the info to his page. I had a page for his little grandson in St. Andrew's cemetery in Grand Rapids and wanted to find the parents. One thing led to another and I found Samuel's wife and son living out in Oregon. It seems to be more humanizing when someone dies alone as Samuel did to give him family and a story.

Lee Otto and Delia Bennett were divorced. Lee's death record said he was buried in the Northport Cemetery, Leelanau Co...but there isn't a record of his burial there. Delia married Walter Chippewa in 1921 Isabella Co...she died Feb 1940 in Isabella Co. There isn't a record of her burial.

RE: Bill Peters
Scott. I was so happy to hear from you! I loved all you said and will reply once I have the photo copied of Bill Peters. I want it to be as clear as possible, so I am having a print shop make a JPEG copy of it. It should be completed and sent to you this week. Like you, I think we should stay in touch. We no doubt know many of the same Native Americans, and one I have admired for so long. I was concerned something had happened to you, so I went ahead and made a memorial for Bill. I figured if you had died, and then I died, no one would be around to remember him properly. But thank goodness that’s not the case! When I send you the JPEG copy of Bill’s photo, I will also post it on the memorial I mad for him and send you the data you had sent to me about him. Now I have to find it! Thanks so much for getting back to me. I look forward to having you as a historical contact. We can trade information. And speaking of that, once everything about Bill is up, I still can transfer the memorial to you. Best wishes.

RE: The road to Andersonville, A story about Company K
This is so very interesting. If it is okay with you I would like to send a copy of this to Karl Crawford, the superintendent at Greenwood Cemetery. He is very much into all of this and would be an excellent source––also, I have another source “David" who may prove most helpful. Both Karl and David write beautiful and meaningful accounts of the individuals from Michigan who took part in the Civil War. (You get the facts, but most touching, is that they are delivered in context of the human beings unique personalities.) Btw, so far as I know, all of the old newspapers are housed up at Greenwood. I learned all about this when Karl Crawford was the featured speaker at the Little Traverse Historical Museum. You would have loved his talk. Punky

RE: Hello there my old friend
Hey there!!!!

Good to hear from you. I love PBS!!! Unfortunately I can't get it in on my tv!!! :( No Antiques Roadshow for me or any American Experience!!

If I'm lucky, I sometimes can find them on youtube and some on the PBS website that you can view but not all are.

Would LOVE to watch it!!! I actually watched one on Youtube a while back about Andersonville. They have a few different ones if you are interested!!!

Did not know Co. K was amongst some so thanks for the info!!! Hopefully I will be able to find it after it airs.

Love movies and docs about the wars, especially RV, CW and VW!!

Hope you are all doing well!!! Keep in touch.

Good news. I found Bill’s photo! At the bottom is grandpa’s note. I think it also gives the year of 1943. I can check again. Let me know what you would prefer to do. I hope this finds you well and in good spirits. Punky

Hello, again.

Just a quick note to let you know I have been checking to see if you posted the memorial for William “Bill” Peters. It appears not––perhaps you are still waiting on the photo from me of Bill Peters in his ceremonial clothes. I am certain I have the photo, but have not so far been able to find it. Today, after checking again, I created a memorial for Bill and will try to find what you sent me originally to supplement. As I agreed previously, I am happy to either transfer it to you, or simply delate it so you can create one for Bill. Please let me know what you would prefer when time allows. I hope this finds you well and active. Best wishes, Punky

RE: Sondra Schwander and Barbara High
Your welcome. What a beautiful marker and wonderful that this child has not been forgotten.

I looked all over for the marker for Barbara but could not find it. I did go to the office and it is in Section U so I know it is somewhere near the picture.

RE: Bill Peters
Hello! What a wonderful surprise! It is amazing all that you discovered! I am happy to do as you suggest and will send you the photo I have of Bill. I have been looking for the past hour and can’t locate it, but I know I have it! In the meantime I am sending by email the photo of him I used in one of my family newsletters. The original is of good quality and I will take to my printer to have a jpeg copy of it for you.
I will keep looking. I came across it just a couple of weeks ago and know it is here somewhere. It is in black and white but it is an original and of excellent quality. Let me know you received it. Thank you so very much!

Bill Peters
Hello. I am trying to locate a friend of the family. His name is Bill Peters. My grandpa and he worked together and became friends in Detroit in the 1930s. After grandpa moved to Petoskey he unexpectedly saw Bill dancing at a pageant on the bluff in Harbor Springs (he wore a Native American Ceremonial Costume. I have a picture post card of him.
Bill and grandpa remained friends for many years. I believe the last time they saw each other was probably in the 1970s when Bill stayed with my parents on Petoskey Street for a week or so. I think he was becoming frail at that time.
I am thinking it could be possible his wife is Rose Peters (you have created a memorial for her). Would you have any clues on how I could find Bill? Thank you for you time and consideration.

RE: Delia versus Ella
Hi, thanks for responding so quickly. The discrepancy is Clarence’s mother. Delia Jessie (Hall) Manitowash is his correct mother, sometimes listed as Della. Delia was married to John Manitowash, son of John Wing Manitowash
Clarence J. Manitowash #81829357 was John and Delia's son. You have listed Ella Hall as his mother and Joseph as his father.
Ella was married to: Joesph Hall # 63586753

Ella Hall #63586746
