Bio and Links
Bio Photo The focus of my genealogical research has been on the search for the ancestors and descendants of David Dean. and Phebe (Borland) Dean. whose sons settled in Wayne, Ingham & Eaton Counties of Michigan in the 1830's and have been spreading out ever since.

I have also been going through my family files and adding to FindAGrave. The majority of the memorials I have created are related to me.

Note that I about half of the memorials I have created are for Dean family but they are not all related to one another. Please notify me of any errors that you are aware of or if you would like to make additions or add family links to any of the memorials that I manage.

RE: Knight
I am so glad to have helped. If you need anything please let me know. I find it very fulfilling to record our local history and certainly the burial records of our ancestors is such an important aspect of that process.
Once again, it was my pleasure to have helped.

RE: Re: Charles P. Oeth
Your are right. There has been some mistakes here.
I am the son of Simon. Elizabeth was my Dad's sister. Any how, Charles middle name was Peter. He didn't have a middle name until he and his daughter Laura joined the Catholic Church. There
Sponsor's were Peter and Marie Dippel. Therefore there were given names of they sponsor. Paul may have been Grandpa's father's middle name.

Please contact me at my email address.

Dean Family
I just looked at your profile and noted that you are interested in the Dean family. If you search the online transcription of Mrs. Puff's scrapbook, you will find other mentions of the Dean family. Apparently the sister of Ms. J.W. Dean was married to a Puff. Their maiden name may have been Lufanny Mrs. J.W. may have been the Amanda whose obit was also clipped. (I'm only doing a quick scan of the clips).

There is some fun information about the various weddings the various Deans attended and what gifts they gave as well as some probate information.

Hope this helps!

RE: John W. Dean obit

This obit is in the scrapbook of Mrs. John L. Puff. Mrs. Puff collected obituaries of people who were of apparent significance to her. She did not note the source of her obituaries. Any date in brackets is from a handwritten note on the obituary. A copy of the scrapbook is maintained by the Tompkins County NYGenWeb.

Because it is an actual clipping, we know it appeared in a newspaper. The likely source is the Ithaca Journal or the Ithaca Daily News.

I believe information from a newspaper account, even if unsourced, can help descendants locate additional information.

Hope this helps!

RE: Walter Hastings
Sorry about that, I didn't realize that you didn't create the Walter Hastings at Evergreen.
I found his headstone anyway since they gave me the plot number.
Turns out he was a Civil war veteran. Turned out to be a nice find!

You might want to delete the Walter Hastings from Evergreen Cemetery since he is not there!

Do you have any idea when this person might have lived, or any claim to fame?
