Bio and Links
Bio Photo In 1974 as a family, we started doing research on "Daddy's" side (all Cowles in USA are related - easy). Yes, I'm a Yankee, and all my family is up North, and I'm here in southwest Virginia. So, I'm trying to help the folks who aren't here, or who can't go to where their love ones are buried. I'VE MOVED BACK TO INDIANA AND AM LIVING IN STARKE COUNTY INDIANA (as of January 2013).

If anyone wants a memorial transferred to them, please let me know. You don't have to "prove it" like I see some people want you to do. Just let me know, and it'll be in your care!

I just saw a "blanket" permission by another graver to use his photos. Good may use any I took and/or entered if you'll give the credit line "provided by" as I do. Please double check before entering the name of the provider as I have permission to use some photos that others have taken or provided. Thanks.

I HAVE REMOVED MY E-ADDRESS FROM THIS SITE BECAUSE I'VE BEEN HACKED - SORRY! But I'm still active, alive and well. Please just post a message, and I will get it done.

RE: Calvary Baptist Church Cemetery in Vicotria VA
Hi Margaret,

Very nice to hear from you, way out there. Have not been doing much ground work lately, busy on the farm with canning peppers, fruits and berries. We sell our products at farmer's markets. You might like to see our farm, online, at Otis Acres micro-Farm on Facebook.

I will put Calvary on my list of to-dos and will photograph the remaining memorials when I am heading that way.

Best Regards, Louise

William Whiteford
I found the death certificate for William Whiteford. Going up to Traverse City mid October. If I make it to Acme Cemetery, I'll try to find his headstone.

Cemetery - Ionia,MI.
The cemetery you looked up on 4th and Washington is the Catholic Cemetery. Highland Park is on Washington. Just over a small bridge on the left hand side is Highland Park. It sits up on a hill and has a gate that is locked at night. Hope this helps. I have no idea what the address is.

Inscription for Jane Hogg is very hard to read.Next time I'm at St.Marys Museum they have the Tombstone Inscriptions done by our genealogy society if you want.

RE: William Aley
Try to google search Montague Museum and you can navigate through the newspaper archives once you have opened their website.

RE: Pleasant Grove in Shelby co, IN
I actually don't have a contact person. All my info I've obtained from walking the cemetery myself. As far as I know all the stones that could be read have been added to find a grave. I believe there's an old print out at the Shelby County Genealogy Library in Shelbyville, Indiana that someone transcribed many years ago. There's several of my family members that I wasn't able to find stones for but I know from their death certificates and obits that they were buried in Pleasant Grove.

Good luck,

RE: George Marshall Arlington Hill Cemetery
I'm walking the cemetery and trying to photo all the stones. This could take me a veeerrry long time. I am sure the two George Marshalls are separate individuals. If I get up there to Bangor(about 35 miles from my home) during a week day, I will stop at city hall and see what info they can give me. There's something about this cemetery that interests me. Part of it is on a hill top the whole of which is the cemetery, so there's plenty of hill climbing. The cemetery has an addition on nice level ground. The next generation to do grave stone photographing will have an easier job. If your George Marshall is there, I'll find him. Sincerely, Kathy J

William Aley
I've been researching William Aley for you. There is no headstone known to belong to William in Oak Grove cemetery. There are no records on file with the city to show where William is buried. However, I did find his grandfather owned a lot in block 51 in Oak Grove cemetery with a purchase year of 1885. There is a Henry G. Aley (who was a veteran of the Spanish American war) buried in one of the plots. Records also show there are 4 plots listed as filled in the lot that William purchased. I probed those 4 plots and unearthed 4 small white marble type headstones. 3 of the 4 headstones had no visual inscriptions on them. One of the headstones had the initials J.S. There are 3 more plots located in the lot William purchased but those must have been reclaimed by the city at some point in the past and have since been resold. I do believe that baby William was buried in Oak Grove. I found a listing in the archives of the local newspaper from April 18 1907 that says William was buried in the Montague Cemetery. My thoughts are baby William is buried in one of the plots where I found the 4 small headstones but I have no solid proof of that being fact. I have provided you a link to the newspaper archive as well. Hope this helps in your research.*The%20Montague%20Observer*The%20Montague%20Observer%201900-1909*1907

RE: more AAC
Hi okay thanks! I'll add him to the virtual cemetery in the lost I have set up for your notifications. I haven't forgotten about your photo. Have just been extremely busy with some big life changes lately. Best wishes to you!

Margaret Rayner 1884-1957
I don't know where Margaret is buried. We couldn't find a headstone for Margaret in the Baljennie cemetery, so either she is unmarked or buried elsewhere. Maybe in another local cemetery or perhaps in Port Alberni, B.C. where her daughter went? My largest source of knowledge for the Lachman family is from Baljennie Reaches Far (a local history available on Our Roots Nos Racines website) p.37 article entitled "Abe and Margaret Lachman submitted by Lucille Surry." An obituary would likely give the place of burial; the likeliest newspaper would be the North Battleford News Optimist.
