    1. ([MICRAWFO])Memorial Day
    2. Richard Berkheiser
    3. Hi everyone! Sorry to start another thread of messages so close to a Surname Shout Out but with the lists being down the first part of the year it threw my scheduling off. Hope you don't mind... With this being the Memorial Day Weekend, I thought it would it be interesting to post one ancestor we have in our family trees who served in one of the many wars and battles we fought in US History. Obviously it has to be an ancestor from this county. :) Give a brief biography of that person including the unit and war he or she was in, a POW, injuries, plus the usual genealogical stuff. Thanks in advance and have a safe weekend! Rick B Admin

    3. My 3rd great grand parents, Daniel WILCOX and Mary WALKER moved to Michigan before 1833 when their daughter Mary Ann Wilcox was born. I can find no trace of her parents after the 1845 census. Mary Ann’s brothers, Alexander and Daniel, were in different homes in 1850.  The brothers stayed in Michigan.  Loretta Welsh oregon1853@yahoo.com On Tuesday, May 8, 2018, 5:27:38 AM PDT, Richard Berkheiser <ricksbookshelf@gmail.com> wrote: Hi everyone!

    1. Re: [MICRAWFO] SCHNEIDER Family Photograph
    2. nancy stone
    3. Hello Shelley, Louise Woodworth is the daughter of Dr. William Woodworth who came to Grayling, Crawford County, Michigan in 1882 from New York. Dr. Woodworth died in Nov 1905 in this village. His obituary reads that he left a wife, daughter Louise, son Charles, Elmer and a daughter from a former marriage, Jennie of New York. I have searched Crawford County history and have found no other information about this family. Louise must have married a Mr. SCHNEIDER but there is no mention of that fact either. I am Nancy Stone and I am an officer of the Crawford County Historical Museum. If there is no other response to your posting to find the family of Louise, the museum would be honored to be considered for the safe keeping of the photograph and would display proudly another piece of our history. Thank you, Nancy Stone > I've "rescued" an old photograph identified as "Mother & Me" along with > the > name Louise Woodworth SCHNEIDER. The photograph was taken at the S. E. > Odell and C. O.

    1. [MICRAWFO] SCHNEIDER Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph identified as "Mother & Me" along with the name Louise Woodworth SCHNEIDER. The photograph was taken at the S. E. Odell and C. O. Hadley Studio in Grayling, Michigan. The photograph appears to have been taken in the 1880's with the woman in her 20's and the baby just a few months old at the time. I'm not sure is Louise is the Mother or baby and if "Woodworth" is a middle name, or maiden name and SCHNEIDER a married name. I'm hoping to locate someone from Louise's family so that this wonderful old photograph can be returned to its rightful place with family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

NOTE: The date at the end of each extract indicates the date of the publication: -Alexander C. WILCOX died at his home near the Fish Hatchery Wednesday afternoon at 1:00 o'clock. Mr. WILCOX was 86 years old and a veteran of the Civil war. The funeral will be held Saturday afternoon. Further particulars will be published in next week's issue of the Avalanche. (24 Jul 1924) -BURIED WITH MILITARY HONORS SATURDAY. In the death of Alexander C. WILCOX shortly after noon on Wednesday of last week, at his home in this city, marked the passing of one of Grayling's oldest residents, and also one of our last veterans of the Civil war, whose ranks are becoming more thin each year, until but few of the heroes of that period remain. All must go but their memory will long be revered. Altho 86 years old, Mr. WILCOX continued very active up to within a few months ago when his health began to fail him. Until very recently he operated his own car and was an unusually good driver. He was very well informed on the topics of the day and was ever ready to discuss them. He was a faithful reader of the daily press and his home town newspaper. He was a remarkable old gentleman and possessed a host of friends among the young and old alike. The old gentleman's dying wish was that his funeral be conducted by the American Legion, and the local post was proud to be honored by being called upon to take charge. The funeral services were held Saturday afternoon at Danebod hall, where a large congregation of old friends gathered to pay their last rites to their former good friend and neighbor. Six members of Grayling post acted as pallbearers, and the firing squad was in charge of Sergt. William LAURENT, while other members formed a line and marched in the funeral cortege. At Danebod hall a choir rendered many beautiful vocal selections and Rev. BAUGHN, of the Michelson Memorial church preached a most impressive sermon. At Elmwood cemetery, following a short prayer by Rev. BAUGHN, the firing squad, at the command of Sergt. LAURENT, fired three volleys over the grave of their departed comrade. Then followed taps by Bugler Russell CRIPPS, that solemnly echoed in the distance and the remains of Alexander C. WILCOX were at rest. The following from out of the city were in attendance at the funeral: Mr. and Mrs. Peter E. JOHNSON, son Peter Emil, Jr., and daughter Miss Mildred, Bert WILCOX, Mrs. VANDERLICK, Mr. and Mrs. Herman WILCOX, Mr. and Mrs. Ray HAVENS and son, Mr. and Mrs. Arthur JOHNSON and three children, Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence SHOEMAKER and daughter, and Mr. and Mrs. Harry NORWICK, all of Grand Rapids; Charles and Earl WILCOX of Muskegon, and Mr. and Mrs. Albert NELSON and daughter, and Mr. and Mrs. Henry VERLINDE and daughter of Frederic. The life of Alexander C. WILCOX was an active one. He was born and grew to manhood in the little Michigan town of Northville. When 23 years old his country called its young men to defend the colors. He answered the call by enlisting, and became a member of Company I, of the 5th Michigan Volunteer infantry. This was the year of 1861, and he served faithfully and well until the 20th day of December, 1862, when he was honorably discharged from service at a convalescent camp near Alexandria. The next year, or in 1863, he was united in marriage to Miss Margretta GREGG. To this union six children were born, four of whom survive - George A., Bert S., Judson M., and Mrs. Phoebe L. JOHNSON. A son and daughter, John C. and Ida S. died a number of years ago. In 1878 the WILCOX family moved to Grayling and purchased a farm near town, where they lived many years, Mr. WILCOX engaging in farming. Mrs. WILCOX died in 1900, some time after which the family came to town to live. Mr. WILCOX was an active and honored member of Marvin Post, G. A. R. of this city.

    2. Loretta Welsh
    3. I am looking for information on Daniel WILCOX and Mary WALKER, and their ancestors. They are born abt 1800-1810 somewhere in New York (according to their children's census records). Daniel seems to have died by 1850, as their children are living in separate homes in Antrim, Shiawassee Co., Michigan. I have no idea if Mary has died or may have remarried. I do have additional information on the three children (and their children) if it would help anyone. Their children, as I have found, are: 1) Mary Anne Wilcox m. Adam C. FISCHER b. 22 May 1833 Michigan (unsure of city/county) d. 08 Sep 1917 Baltimore, Baltimore Co., Maryland 2) Alexander C. Wilcox b. 11 Aug 1838 Michigan (unsure of city/county) 1st m. abt 1856 to Maryette GREGG children are: 1) William R. b. abt 1857 in Michigan 2) Martha b. abt 1859 in Michigan 3)Phoebe b. abt 1865 in Michigan; m.

    1. New Kalamazoo County Cemetery Website
    2. We are pleased and excited to announce the following to our Genealogy Community: AN ALL NEW ROOTSWEB HOSTED WEBSITE WHICH WILL PROVIDE FREE ACCESS TO EVERY CEMETERY IN KALAMAZOO COUNTY, MICHIGAN! Our objective is to provide indexes of burials as well as photos and transcription records of all gravestones in Kalamazoo County. We are certain this site will become one of the premiere cemetery sites on the Internet! The project is being provided in the best interest of the Genealogy Community by a team of volunteers. We currently have collected data for over 60,000 burials in Kalamazoo County, and that data is in various stages of computerization.  As each of the cemeteries is completed, it will be added to our new site where it can be freely accessed by all. Our site is now available at the URL below.  Keep in mind, we are just beginning and we will continuously add each and every cemetery as we complete them.  In addition, cemeteries that have been completed will be updated yearly with any new burials during the year.  Our site is hosted by Rootsweb and will soon be highlighted by Eastman's Online Genealogy Newsletter. In addition to indexing burials we will have complete stone transcriptions, cemetery maps, cemetery photos, grave photos, printable township reports, printable cemetery reports and much more.  We also have an e-mail list for those who wish to be notified as the site is updated.  Please visit often. Please visit us at: http://www.rootsweb.com/~mikalam2/
