Bio and Links
My interest in genealogy started late in life even though my Mother did it for over 40 years.

I found it interesting, but was not much interested until a cousin started asking me questions I could not answer. So I went to the boxes of paper my Mom left me and started sorting and entering the information in to program. Well you know the rest of the story!

When My poor Mom started gathering all her family history, there was no computers to go to for help. She made many trip across the county to find her information and even a trip to England to try and trace my Grandmother's family.

All interesting, but very tedious work, but she made it much easier for me, all I had to do was sort through hundreds of pieces of paper work and organize it into a program. Thanks Mom!

My family tree consist of Wemple, Dakin, Denstaedt, Meyer, Keller, Fliemen, Boone & Froom families. Lots of German and lots of dutch. What a combo!

RE: Clara Dakin
Legacy 9 came out a couple of weeks ago and has a place in the individual entry for the Find A Grave memorial number.
I'm sifting through everything to get the numbers entered and came across Clara's parents and saw your note on that memorial.
Always glad to help when I find information it appears you do not have.
You have the most complete Dakin family file I know of. Hope that someday it will go into the Mason library genealogy room.

RE: Franz Frantz
Hi Leanne,
We have mutual ancestors, I believe, and you are a godsend to those of us no longer in the Detroit area- your gravesite photos and detailed histories are really appreciated:)
You mislabeled Gregory as another George.
Gregory Frantz (1902-1955) was my maternal grandmother Josephine Frantz's big brother. He had 2 brothers named George, one who died aged 10 in 1909, and George Arthur born 1910. I put some pictures of each of them on my Wieske Family Tree on Ancestry today, which I am happy to share.
How are we related? I see some Meyers on our tree, but not you, and I don't see a Tree of yours on Ancestry.

Yours in sleuthing,
Karen Urbani

RE: Lori Okel
It was my pleasure, she looks like she was a fun, well loved woman. I live next to Park Hill cemetery. I'd be happy to go visit her again if you need me too.

RE: 159378785
Straighten in what way? Not sure what you mean. I had no gardening tools when I found it and cleared as much as possible with a stick I found on the ground. If you mean the incorrect birthdate I have no idea of how one would go about correcting that.
I'd try my best if I can help.

Incorrect info for Norbert Janisse
Hi Leanne,
I'm Norb's daughter and you have the wrong birthday and nick name. He was born May 8, 1932, passed Feb 2, 1999 and his nickname was 'Bub'. I've never heard 'Bert'. Where did you get that?

Lucille Dorothy (Shaw) Weed
Hi Leanne, I am writing concerning Lucille Dorothy (Shaw) Weed. I found her obituary and it appears that she was born in Wilmslow, Cheshire, England (birth location information given in the obit) to James and Jane Shaw on 22 Apr 1893. She (Mrs. Forest Weed) is mentioned in the obituary of her sister, Millicent "Milly" (Shaw) Mole, Taylor, b. Abt 1866 in Cheshire, England, d. 11 Jun 1935 in Chicago, Cook Co., Illinois. There is a huge age difference in their ages but Milly was the oldest and Lucy was the youngest of a large family. I can supply obits that I have found and other sources if you would like. Just thought you might like to know what I have found on this family. Sincerely, Sherry Kilgore

RE: Meyer family
No relationship, sorry. I have thousands of pages I work on every day and pass along whatever I'm seeing at the time. Glad I could send some breadcrumbs your way. :)

I was able to find the death info on Harry Gale, Virginia's father. I have a short obit if you would like to have it.
