Bio and Links
Bio Photo I was born May 1, 1959, in Mt Clemons, Michigan.

My Parents;
Donald Oberlin
Myrtle Oliver Oberlin

On February 14 1998 I married Michael Smarr, my childhood sweetheart. He has been my soulmate and has been with me through the Great and the Hard times, ever by my side.

In Oct 2006 I was diagnosed with terminal Breast Cancer and told I had two years to live.

In 2007 my son got married, and they have given us two of the most precious granddaughters.

In 2010 my sister Carol Oberlin Fortin and I found we both enjoyed geneology, so we started putting our family up on Find A Grave.

Now my Granddaughters will have a permenant record of their family.

The Lord has truely Bessed Me. It is now June 2012, It has been a struggle but worth every minute.

As we travel we find and enter cemeteries, so if I have your family member, no matter how far up the tree, please ask for the memorial, and if its not our family I would be honored to transfer it to you.

May God Bless you, Janice

RE: Thomas P. Anderson 73628555
A couple of years ago you indicated that you might be able to find his obituary or death certificate. I hope you can help with this - we're still trying to find out where in Ireland his family is from.
Thank you.

Do you have links to the census and/or marriage records mentioned on this memorial that you could share with me?

RE: Mary Elliis
Newton and Bessie Howe were my Great Grandparents, Mae Dell was Grandma's sister, William Eugene Howe was Grandma's brother. 1938 I think he was 10.

RE: Mary Howe Ellis
She married Edgar Ellis in polk county, Florida in 1940. Dad was born on my great grandparents farm. Newton Grady and Bessie Clifton Howe. Dad joined the Navy in 1948. Lied about his age. Moved back to Douglas after. Not sure when he left again. But he was living in Detroit, before moving to Canada in May 1959. In the early 2000's Dad legally changed his name to Horace Joseph Howe.

RE: Horace marriage
My Dad was born 1931 in Jeff Davis County, Ga. My Grandma was 17, Horace was 20. Maybe they were not married who knows. I am curious about Dorothy thou. Candace was born in 1955, thought her mom was Clairemont. Some records show Horace and Claire married in May 1964.. Kight family sure is a mystery to me.

RE: Horace Kight
I have never been able to find any marriage record between Mary Lizzie (Howe) Ellis (grandma) and Horace Kight either. I am curious as to who Dorthy is.

Horace Kight
Who is Dorothy Kight? I thought he married Claire in the 50's. Because Candace was born in Dec 1955. Although my Dad never meet his half sister.
