I have been a life-long history/genealogy buff. On here almost daily researching my ancestry or adding memorials.
As a child I always felt like I was unimportant and insignificant. When I began to research my ancestry, I came to find out that I had a family history and there were some interesting people in my tree. Genealogy has been a great comfort and value to me and I hope to pass that on in my own family.
Now as a follower of Jesus Christ, I realize that I am a child of the Most High. My prayer is that I would help others to understand His great love for us and that I would be a light to someone.

P.S. Anyone has my permission to copy any of the photos I have posted here as long as it is for your personal use. You cannot copy them if it is for profit or promotion; otherwise feel free. After all, isn't sharing what it is all about????

George DeLong - Mem# 99785794
Could you please tell me the source of George's memorial (tombstone, death cert. or ?). According to the 1920 census of Durand Village, Vernon Twp., Shiawassee Co., MI, the listed parents George D. & Carolyn DeLong had a son Geo Jr. age 9 = b. 1910-11(hardly an infant). I have incountered another Find A Grave memorial# 181430901, who also seems to fit being a son of George & Carolyn, as he was born in Durand, Shiawasse Co., MI, according to the included obit. w/the memorial. I have searched the 87 census images of Vernon Twp. and George D. & Carolyn DeLong & 2 children are the only DeLongs in the township.

James Martin
Are you related to James Martin whose memorial you posted on the find a grave site? He is buried in St. Joseph Cemetery, Gaines, Mi. You have a wife listed there for him but I'm wondering if he was also married to my great aunt Rose Tietz Martin. I know that she married a James Martin after her husband John Daniel died. She is buried in St. Robert Bellarmine, Flushing but she died in Gaines in 1949. If you have any information on any of this, I would love to have it to tie up some loose ends.
Thank you.

Joseph Carr # 181955830
yes, but I am more interested in where the info came from for you to create a find a grave for Joseph Carr her first husband. I am on and a few other sites snd hsve found nothing except a 1850 census, no burial info or anything. Do you have records that he is buried in Oakwood Cemetery? #181955830

Thanks Again,

Jenette Green Ager # 97010955
I was wondering where you found the info you have posted for my 3x great Grandmother Jennette Green Carr Ager in Oakwood Cemetery in Gaines, MI? I have been researching my 3x great grandfather,her first husband, Joseph Carr and have not been able to find anything about him past the 1850 census. If you have some information on him I would appreciate it if you would be willing to share it with me. Thanking you in advance, Melissa S Simonson-Waligora

Richard W. Adams II #115552286
Please disregard my edit suggestion to link this memorial with father Richard Adams #38993820 as this is incorrect. This is actually a duplicate of your above memorial for the son. His correct father Richard Wallace Adams (#57123596) died shortly after his son and both having the same name contributed to my confusion. Sorry for my error. Thanks, Shirley

David Tillman b 1843
I am working with a prospective member to complete an application to the Daughters of the American Revolution. She descends from William Tillman son of David Tillman and Sally Ann Emmons. In order to confirm his parentage I found your note that son, David's death record shows his parents as David Tillman and Eupheme Pittinger. They supposedly married 24 Oct 1840. Would you be able to share that death record as well as their marriage information? Thank you so much. Kathy Doddridge

My mother was a Mensch. She comes from Rev. John Nicholas's brother Adam. He had a mill in Berks County at Huff's Church. I am researching all Mensch's and was wondering if you had a list of John Nicholas's children that I could have. I have a some of them.
