Bio and Links
I am doing my family genealogy, and I wanted a headstone picture of a past relative killed, by friendly fire, during the civil war.
My interest grew, and now I take pictures and create memorials myself.

I've now been a graver for more than five years, and I enjoy it as much now as I did when I started. I truly enjoy getting those photo's for other's who could not, because I now know first hand how it feels to finally have a much wanted photo of that loved one lost.

If you'd like a transfer of a memorial I've created, just ask. If it's my family, it may be difficult but not impossible.

I send a personal thankyou to all of my fellow gravers. Keep up the good work.

RE: John Marx
Hi Al,

Unfortunately I live in Virginia so I am not close to the cemetery. All National Cemeteries have books outside in a covered plastic container listing all the soldiers buried there. You could also write to the cemetery which I have done many times asking about people buried there. Sometimes the mail doesn't go through if they have no office on the premises.

Good luck.

Myrtle F Stountenburg- Gould- Lozar
She is coming from Sanaliac, Michigan. I do believe she is from Ireland. She is my great-grandmother from Sheridan, Michigan..Dorothea Claire Thompson is my mom's Mother. She passed away in 1955 in Fenwick, Michigan at home. She had cancer. Ferris Thompson (Her husband) is my maternal grandpa from Fenwick, Michigan. Does anyone have any solid proof on this line? I have Myrtle F. Stountenburg's guest book. From her passing. Vera Grimes is in it too. She called her self Mrs. George F. Grimes??

RE: John Fisher
John Fisher changed his name on Jan 27 1940 from Drzewiecki was filed in the County of Iosco in the State of Michigan in Probate Court. I also have his obituary from the Dec 10, 1997 Cass City Chronicle that says he was the son of Frank and Mary (Chesler) Drzewiecki.

HIs wife Myrtle Stella Cory died just 16 hours after him. I connect to the family through her, her maiden name is Brown.

Hi Al,
First I thank you for your volunteer time on this web site and helping us out here with our genealogy memorials!
Second I send my message to confirm it is ok to post your photos on my family tree (and will give you credit for kindly creating the memorial and for the photo you have taken for Find A Grave Memorial# 112313056). This would be one of my 1 cousin's maternal grandparents on my family tree.
Thank You,

RE: Cora Naylor
Will give it another shot, Al. There are three separate Park "H" sections, all behind the chapel. But the names of others buried around is a Real Plus. Hope they have markers as well. Thanx!
