Bio and Links
Bio Photo HI, I have been researching my Genealogy since July of 2000. I really enjoy visting Cemeteries and takeing pictures. Headstones are so awesome, they come in all different shape, sizes, Colors, and the engravings express how someone was feeling at the time this person died. I believe you can some what see what kind of a person was by their headstone. And sometime a headstone is all that is left on this earth. I live in Allegan, Michigan

Hi Ken,

Once again I am asking you to delete your memorial for him as you have his name backwards and is a duplicate. In the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans cemetery.
Thank you.

Norton Bentley Ridgelawn Cemetery

As you can see from the photo, either the name is broken off or buried under grass, but this is Norton's headstone per the cemetery records.

If you want the dates I have from the stones, just let me know.

I prefer to photograph and not make memorials, but do on occasion. Thanks.

RE: Chandler

I just uploaded photos of Nathan & Rebecca Chandler from Evergreen Cemetery. I also took photos of the other Chandlers buried with them (9 others). Would you like to make memorials for them? Or I can if you don't want to. I can give you info for them if you want to do it.

RE: Chandler
You are welcome. I uploaded the "little stones" for David, Sophia, and Edith. I do not mind that you added the large stone to the others. Thank you for crediting the photo to me. I see you added a request for Nathan Chandler in Evergreen. It is a difficult cemetery to "navigate" when searching for an unknown plot. It is arranged in an array of patterns. Some families are arranged in circles...quite a challenge to search all stones. Not to mention that there are a lot of Chandlers buried there. I am planning one more trip there and will see if I can find Nathan while I am there. Thank you for all you do for Find A Grave.

Israel Hibbs 1837-1913
I have two possible women as mother to Israel Hibbs: 1) J. M. Race, possibly born in England, may have given birth to Israel on board ship coming to New York, therefore his birth is registered as New York, U.S.A. 2) Mary Ellis, born England, married to John Hibbs 1819 in Dorset, England.

The information I have shows that John married a second wife J.M. Race in 1830s who is mother to the last two children Selena and Israel. However, then we have Israel married to Jane E. Race.

I am just wondering if anyone has any primary source documents that name Israel's mother ie birth record, etc.

Either way John Hibbs Israel's father is widowed by the 1840 census.

Hey Ken,

You've got the cart before the horse.

Should be William Tracy # 16819966, which makes it a duplicate.
