Thank you Jack for transferring Sarah to me; have already made some changes. Without you taking photos in the cemetery, and doing memorials, most likely would never have found her. Now I can connect her to her first and 2nd husbands.

RE: Lodema Pitcher
Jack, thank you very much for your cooperation and for going the extra mile. I have submitted a link to her father who was married twice. Her mother was his first wife and I don't know where she is buried.

Mary Powell's parents
I started thinking and Mary Powell's mother was a Petroskey,whether it's spelled Petrosky or one of the German/Polish spellings. Their relation had been in the Cedar a long time,about the same as Flees/Flis/Flies/Fleis.(1870's)

Re your rejection of my request to add Greenhoe as her maiden name, I assume that the record of her marriage to Barney Pitcher is the source of your belief that Greene was her maiden name. However, a close look at the actual record will prove that the spelling was Greeno. Also, records of the marriage of two of her children and the death of another list her maiden name twice as Greenhoe and once as Greeno. Please reconsider my request.

It is on Thursday when you can buy it. It's ( and click on obituaries.
Obits,they don't require a subscription, some other sections are not free.

RE: Mary Powell
Yes,I read it online as some of my relatives feel it's cost prohibitive to put in RE.
Jon did not say how Mary eight months later. I do pray for her with no relapse.
I also pray for Gassman girls as Ann has had cancer,hopefully it is NOT a gene passed. Nort,Bill,Ann.

RE: Mary Powell

It caught my interest as she was an Osie. Osies did lived in Cedar and Lake Leelanau. My computer program is down.ready to change computers,so can not give family history, but is a name known in the Cedar area.

RE: Memorial 119178858 M. Wheelock
Hi Jack Franke, You have done a wonderful job with your memorials. I have been impressed as I have come across them. I am sorry for the additional pictures but I like to show family members close to each other in a cemetery. Often people are able to find family members they would not find any other way, especially married women. I am sorry you do not approve.
Sincerely, Linda
