|Bio and Links|
I live in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I enjoy photographing tombstones for FindAGrave. I have even been known to dig stones out of the ground. :)|
I do not consider my photographs "copyrighted". I post them for the sole purpose of helping other genealogists in their family research. However, if you post the photos on ancestry or another website, photo credit would be appreciated. :)
My goal is not to impress others by high numbers. I create many memorials just so they are documented, and try to add pertinent information to them. I'm more than willing to transfer these memorials to someone who can take better care of them, as long as they are not my relatives.
Surnames I am researching: Solomon-Haberman (Jennings Co. IN & Saline Co. MO); Stoneking-Livingston-Long (Greene Co. PA & Tyler Co. WV); Wagaman-Turner (Missouri, Kansas, Washington); Pannekoek-DeVoogd-Waterloo (Kent Co. MI); LePard-Densmore (Kent, Ionia & Barry Co., MI); Kirby-Payne (Howard Co. MO); Riggle-Guist-Ortz (PA & OH).

I have sent a message to the owner of the memorial.
I also made a large note on Rachel's memorial, so we don't lose all har data.
You are terrific to find the lady !!!!
I am a Rittenhouse descendant, not a relative of Sarah.

Kathy Cook that article on Alonzo Baker was "Just the ticket" to solve my A.L. Baker family info. When I reviewed his will it was indeed listed all the family members and including my Francis Marion Burnham. Thank you. . Karen
No worries Thank you for all you do with Find a Grave. Karen

Alonzo L Baker Born: (1809) unknown Died: Mar. 8, 1880 Inscription: 71y Burial: Maple Hill Cem.(Charlotte, Eaton Co., MI Plot: section B Memorial# 57289511). A.L. Baker, of Charlotte, who was buried Wednesday, left a very short will, unconditionally bequeathing his property, amounting to $25.00 or $30,000, to his wife. Unfortunately Mrs. Baker died but a few days before her husband, and there being no provision for this emergency in the will, the whole property will be divided between nearly twenty relatives. Mr. Baker having no children: Sunday March 134, 1880 Kalamazoo Gazette (Kalmazoo, MI) Page 4. Clarissa Z Baker Born 1813. Died Feb. 13, 1880 Inscription: 67y Burial: Maple Hill Cem.(Charlotte, Eaton Co., MI Plot: section B Memorial# 57289532).

You posted an article on A.L. Baker. Find A Grave shows a large Baker monument for A.L. Baker and Sarah Samantha Baker has the same picture. I have been chasing and A.L. Baker for years. The family story is T"he Burnham's and Bakers had land in heart of Chicago land that they either gave or loaned the land to Chicago, They were involved in a suit to get back the land but lost. I have a list of the relatives listed in the suit, no date.
The monument has inscriptions that are hard to read, any ideas how or whom can get better view? The original Find A Grave person who posted has passed. Karen
