Bio and Links
Bio Photo Born in Wexford county, Michigan. Retired from Federal Service in '95 after a career in Radar and Broadcasting. Became interested in genealogy after moving to Florida. Recently discovered findagrave and have spent many hours in virtual cemeteries. My wish is to someday have enough time to completely photograph and upload certain cemeteries. Some of the surnames I'm working on are Altman, Zeitz, Irwin, Ketchum, O'Neal, Lewis, Switzer and Bond.

As a military veteran, I've promised myself to post a memorial for all deceased veterans, in my area whose obits list a cemetery. Living in an area with a large military retiree population, means I'm going to be busy! Since I am obviously not related to most of the families for whom I've created a memorial, I would be happy to transfer the ownership to a family member. Just send me an email request.

The image on this page is my G-Grandfather, George Altman, who spent 4 years in the Civil War as a Private with the Ohio 68th Infantry. Members of my family have served in the military during every war we've fought, going all the way back to the Revolutionary War.

RE: Sharp family
Hi Ron, Sorry I beat you to the record but she is a distant relative of mine. Thanks for your support and your hard work in keeping up with the obituaries in the Cadillac area. I only try to input those records for people who are related to me and leave the rest for you and others to input. You have done a super job in getting the records input for others to find. Also thanks for updating the records when you are sent information that others have. Keep up the great job Ron !!!

Sorry for the late response but I have been sick.

Would you please transfer this memorial to me. Bob was my wife's uncle (youngest brother of her mother, Marion Bainton, nee Fretterd)

Thank you for establishing this memorial and honoring his memory.

RE: Clifton Dafoe Rowland memorial
I'm glad that you were able to connect it all to-gether. I know who Jeanne's parents are but have been having difficulty finding the correct burial place or would have sent it along also.
I did put on some incorrect info. for my own grgrandfather & it became a bit of a problem to get it straightened out. I am a bit hesitant on adding anything that I cannot be reasonably sure of so am glad this all worked out. I hope it will help someone else one day.
Thanks, Ron.

Yes, I think the HP and Anna S Hatfield - which you found, are his parents.
