Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Sheila Burgess Garrett, I was born and raised in Vicksburg, Michigan. I now reside in Olivet, Michigan with my husband Mike of 40 years. I was elected the Mayor of Galesburg in November of 2010, becoming the first female Mayor of this City, and relinquesed my title in November 2012 due to some major health issues I was going through. My husband and I moved in with my youngest son and daughter-in-law in December of 2012 - now I have lots of Grave hunting time..
I love doing Genealogy, I want to leave my two sons and 7 Grand children with lots of info pertaining to there ancestors.
My families include the following,
Burgess, Hallam, Pace, Eagley, Cooper, Hodgman, Kaiser, Stillwell, Stockwell, Horton, Garrett, Robbins, Handy, Wright, and a few others..
And yes I have probably missed a few - and if I can help anyone please send an e-mail..
Thanks for all who have shared before me..

I am willing to Grave Stone hunt in Calhoun, Eaton, Barry, and Ingham Counties..

Luther Durrin 40169618
Would you remove the picture on Luther's memorial? It belongs to the other Luther Durrin (which you added a picture). This Luther died in 1857. Thanks

More thanks, for the additional photos you provided of the Cooper family memorials at West Carmel Cemetery. As before, the photos are good quality and we're appreciative of your efforts.

Cooper headstone photo
We want to thank you for fulfilling our photo request for the headstone of Thomas Cooper. We believe this is the correct grave, and considering the apparently poor condition of the stone, you did a nice job. We appreciate your contribution to this site!

Permission to copy photo?
Hello Sheila,

I thought I should let you know that I copied your photo of Irving Martin (105241932) onto the new entry I made for his wife, Harriet (160349326), who is also listed on the stone, but didn't have a findagrave entry until I made one. If you object to having the photo there, I'll be glad to remove it--just let me know. Thanks for all the work you do and best of luck. --Garaygen

Headstone photos attached to wrong person
Hi, Sheila -- The headstone photos you have attached to #133526074 actually belong to his son. There is no remaining headstone for the elder Benajah. Most of the old stones in this cemetery are crumbled and, sadly, piled in a jumble in the corner of the cemetery.

Please remove the headstone photos from this #133526074. And thank you so much for the photo which you've already attached to his son, # 40169475!
