Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a historical archaeologist in Tucson, Arizona. My family has lived in Grand Traverse County, Michigan since the 1860s. I have been researching the families of Long Lake township and preparing a detailed history of that area. I am also adding entries for several defunct cemeteries here in Tucson.

If you find a memorial of a relative, please contact me and I will gladly transfer memorials to you. Also feel free to use the photographs on my memorials that are taken by my for however you want to use them.

Once again I am writing asking your assistance to help complete your photo request. As you can see it just takes one phone call from you. James

Hello,
If you can call Holy Cross Cemetery @ (310)836-5500 for the grave location I will get the photo for you! Do not email because they will not reply. I would call for you but since I am probably the only regular active volunteer there I have made many many calls to them for locations and they are very annoyed with me. Please send it to my member page as I go 2 times a week. James

RE: Thanks!
Homer,
You are very welcome. It was fun chasing a Titanic survivor. The cemetery in question is just at the end of my street - three blocks away. As a boy I would walk through that cemetery on the way to a friend's house.

Cole Brothers
I remember Morrell running Cole Brothers John Deerea and being married to Martha Flees. After his death Cole Bros. shut the doors and sold.
P.S. Linda Kilway Atckinson has passed in Jan.this years,a good soul. Alfreda is still living. I corresponded with Linda about 16 years, heard that she may had ALS, but can't say as she never said.

Thiels
Homer,
I don't know if you remember me,but I knew Tom & Diane Thiel,your uncle ?. I am always interested in hearing about stories about the Coles. I am about same age as Misha (Michael).I had met Coleman about 40 years ago. The older siblings Julia and can not remember her brother's name, are deceased.
You do a great deal for Find A Grave and are very appreciated for what you do here.
Diane was in an auto accident about two weeks ago, did not hear other than she's OK.

Homer,
Do you have any info. on my great aunt Emma North- Guy's,Orle's sister.(Not Emma Graham),who died about age 3 or so.1903-1905.I have not found any info. other than a census in Randolph Co.-1900.
She was living as was my grandfather,Uncle Orle and Uncle Carl.

RE: G-G Uncle Frank Slusher
I always have this idea that you are more than historian,because of the amount of Winchester,IN people you have. The Norths have Quaker connections there.Mae and Rollie Cole and Blanche and Frank were the Quakers practicing.
Was Morrell Cole any relation to Rullie Cole,that you know of?

RE: G-G Uncle Frank Slusher ,2
I am surprised you did not find Aunt Mae and Uncle Rollie Cole there also along with Cleve and Marie Brown.Although the Norths were originally Friends (Quakers) members, forward past this generation,I did not know anybody was still a member.

G-G Uncle Frank Slusher
Homer,
Many thanks for the picture of Uncle Frank.
Where did you find that? I'd be curious if you come up with pictures of Aunt Blanche.By the time I moved to Michigan,she was fighting cancer and died three years later.
