Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Daughter of a Union Veteran of the Civil War. (DUVCW) My Great Great Grandfather, John Delong fought in the Civil War. I am unable to find his grave. He died in Spencerville, Ohio on June 17, 1895 at the age of 84.

I volunteer at the Grand Rapids, Michigan Home for Veterans.
I maintain the Cemetery records and make sure the tombstones get ordered and placed at the burial site in a timely manner.

I am an United States Air Force Veteran.

Also I am the secretary for the Grand Rapids Civil War Round Table. And I am a director on our newly formed group, Friends of Michigan Veterans' Homes. We raise money for the little extras for our Vets in the Homes.

It is hard for me to pass a cemetery without stopping. Lucky for me, my husband has the same interests.

Please if you request a transfer, please use the EDIT key. Also send me your ID number.

Thanks so much for your help. I plan to add more information and photos about Aunt Daisy and the family members who are buried beside her.

Thanks for your prompt reply. I'll send a correction to the person who owns Mattie'd memorial.

RE: Walter Buck's grave
Although I live near Woodland, IN my line of Bucks moved directly from NY to MI, where I was born. I'm from Walter's oldest son (apparently by his first wife Mary) Alvin, whose grave is in Linden, MI. I have a photo of it if it's not already on here--AFAIK it's the oldest grave in the cemetery, 1870.

RE: WALTER BUCK'S CHILDREN
Walter's wife Chloe was mentioned on deeds with Walter in 1810 and 1850. Hope that helps. I have never found her last name.

Walter Buck's grave
Walter's sons Jonathan and Edward are listed in the county History as having settled this area before 1851, so Walter at his advanced age would have lived with one of them. I have looked through the Woodland cemetery, located on US 331 in what I believe is Section 15 of Madison Township, and found no Buck graves, nor any as old as 1858. So it appears that wherever he was buried, there is no enduring record nor memorial. (My father is your husband's 4th cousin).

You have the right page according to the death certificate and cemetery plot number. I'll send the other page into edit as being in the wrong cemetery and send you the info for your page. Good eye to catch the cemetery snafu.

RE: GEORGE CORLISS
Oh snap! I didn't see the 2 cemeteries. I just saw the same death dates. I'm working on that family name right now chasing them all over Michigan. I'll get back to you shortly after I look for his death certificate.

RE: Amasa Watson
I did not know that you did that for the war graves. I would like to meet with you at the cemetery when the weather breaks. I have unearthed quite a few markers and am going to clean up some of the overgrowth, clean some headstones, etc. this summer. If we work together maybe we can accomplish more than one on one.
