Bio and Links
Bio Photo I love family history and connecting with other amateur genealogists. I live in northwest Nebraska. I'm researching Turner, Fairchild, Mahan, Waters, Pollard, Stockman, Woodruff, Kellogg, Kelly, McCall, Gunderson, Harnett, Spurway, Woodbeck, Squires, Kuk, and Greene, to name a few.

I love old photographs and think they really enhance each memorial. If I add a photo to one of your memorials and you would like it removed, please let me know and I'll delete it. Feel free to use any photos I add in any way you wish.

I believe that a relative's memorial should be with family, not with strangers. I believe that these memorials need to be with people who knew and loved them.

Please use the "edit" button on the memorial when you are requesting a transfer or sending corrections.

Your subject memorial posted in 2016 is a duplicate of one posted in 2011, Find A Grave #69796536, and contains an incorrect year of death and nothing else. You might consider deleting it.

Ivan Stuart Butler 167890174
Hello, Ivan was my 2nd great uncle by marriage to my great grandfather's sister Ethel Lorinda Collins. He left Illinois along with his family for Tulare County, CA some time between 1910 and 1920 according to censuses and married my 2nd great aunt in 1920. He eventually died July 10, 1969 in California. His two children are actually still living, though in their 90's. I will continue to search for WWI information on him. Thanks!

Woodmere & Cadillac Memorial East Cemeteries
If possible could you call the offices of Woodmere, Detroit & Cadillac Memorial Gardens East, Clinton Twnsp to help get grave locations for your requests.

I ask because both these cemeteries will ONLY give out grave locations to family members and will NOT work with Find A Grave volunteers.

Both of these cemeteries are very large & without grave locations & section maps, I doubt if you will get your headstone photoed by Find A Grave volunteers.

Thanks in advance for any grave locations you get in the future to help Find A Grave volunteers.

I added your information to her memorial and I believe it does provide clarification of relationships. I've also revised her maiden name to "Maddock" and added "Baldwin" as her middle name although I'm thinking that perhaps her maiden name should be "Maddock-Baldwin". By the way, do you know her first husband's name?
