Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired engineer living in Michigan who fills in many of his days with golf and woodworking.

But my favorite retirement activity is discovering my family genealogy history along with the stories and oral history as it has been passed down through the generations.

I have documented 7000+ family member's genealogy using MyHeritage software on a private family web site. Now I am adding some of my ancestors to Find A Grave to make some of my findings public.

Family names being researched include: Brock, Weaver, Critchlow, Yetter, Gilchrist, McFadden, Ellenberger, Orr, Miller, VanDyke, Hoffman, Stevens, Shaffer, Atwell, Snay and Ghost.

Genealogy records available for any branches of my family if you are related to one of my documented memorials. Also fell free to use any of my posted photos. Higher quality versions are usually available for the asking.

This was a duplicate that you placed on find-a-grave. The information should have been sent to me or a transfer should have been requested. I will this time delete my memorial but request that you be more careful in the future. Sincerely, Roni Yeats

RE: Thelma Neese Photo - Thanks
You are so welcome!

I am very sorry that the photo is not "that good", but I am only 5' tall! The markers were about 4' higher up on the wall and I didn't see anything around for me to stand on!

The cemetery will only give plot locations to family members, but from the photo on her husband's memorial, I was able to figure out almost where Thelma's plot was located ... just had to do a bit of searching. I wasn't happy to see how far away the markers were from me.

Did the best I could!

Eakin Genealogy
Hi there,

I am working on many family ancestries and came across the wonderful information you had on the Eakin family, My father was Glen Jackson and his mother was Laura Ledora Eakin, daughter of Sherman Eakin, and so on to Big John Eakin. Just wanted to stop in and say hello.

RE: Mary Brock-Drook Suggestion
That is great. I just knew there had to be a mistake on one of the memorials. Since you have confirmed that his first wife did indeed die in 1937 instead of 1939 I will update my information as well. Thank you for taking time to figure out the error. :)

RE: Jean Potter Search
Hi Jack. I had previously located Arthur's grave at Tamworth General Cemetery however it was a single memorial only and placed with other servicemen. I also located their son Brian's grave at Evergreen Memorial Park (Tamworth's other cemetery) and enquired at the office for Jean but they advised me that they had no record. From memory, I think I looked up the death notice in the Tamworth newspaper but it said "privately interred" or "privately cremated" but I'd have to go back for another look to verify.
