Bio Photo Havent been getting my messeages through my old e mail my new one is

Well I felt it time to up grade my Profile here, after having a little better knowledge of working this site, and let ya all know of the project Ive started, I'm becoming totally amazed at the Information I find researching the Grave yards in my area.
To start I have begun the process of recording all three cemeteries in Almira Township, Benzie County, Michigan.
Greenbriar Cemetery
Lake Ann Cemetery
and West Almira Cemetery
When I was young I remember my Grandma "Velma Robinson Ryan" dragging me around to these cemeteries, and telling me of this relative and that relative, not really paying much attention, well now that I'm a lot older, and I wonder sometimes of being wiser, but such is the case I spent the better part of last summer going back through those cemetery's and going through the records at the Almira Township office, recording the people buried in the three cemeteries, and I'm in the process of putting what I have found , and finding on find a grave and creating a web site for all 3, Ounce I got started little did I know! and the more I wanted to know! so the process has started and I hope to have it done before my passing, so if your reading this and would like more Information on somebody I have posted I will be more the glad to help if I can

I just thought you would like to know I have located the headstone for your 2nd and 3rd great grand mothers in Prospect Lawn Cemetery. I have attached it to their memorial.

Surname Shaft
Hi Marc, just wondering if you have found any SHAFT burials in Grand Traverse or Benzie Counties.
Just found my Grt. grandfather sister Olive M. Bartram who married a Shaft, he died before 1866 and she then married Edward L. Farr. Hoping to get first name for first husband. Or at least where he is buried.
thanks for you help.

Please remove the plagiarized biography of Thomas Brooks which you have lifted (complete with my footnote numbers) via copy/paste from my copyrighted website,, where you clearly failed to read or heed the following copyright notice:

"Facts belong in the public domain, but the narratives, tables and charts on this website which collate and interpret those facts are my creative work product, and are protected under U.S. copyright.

I'll give you a week to get this done, failing which I'll complain to the management. (How many other Brooks memorials will I/they find you've similarly plagiarized?) In the meantime, I'll add Find A Grave to the list of proscribed plagiarization sites in my copyright warning.

Sarah Gee Brown
Hi Marc,
Just wanted to mention you have Sarah Gee Browns death year off by one year. The gravestone photos show it is 1812, rather than 1813. I sent it as a edit. Thanks, Nancy
