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.
