Michael Baker commented on Spirit Baker's blog post Anyone have Baker from New York 1800's?
"Where did you get the info on divorce? Secondly I may have found out where Jane went. It seems by 1870 she was married to an Andrew S Weeks in Ashford CT. Possibly a cousin."

 Hi Spirit!     It's been awhile. My searching worksheets are on the shelf for the time being for other interests, duties & desires in the warm weather.....as it turns out,HOT & humid all of July.  Anyway, I wanted to connect with you to tell you how apprciative I am that you introduced me to Findagrave.com.  I've used it alot . I have a question.  How would I downsize a picture to the acceptable size for adding to a person's grave site on Findagrave.com.  I tried once & was told photo was too large. Appreciate any info you can give me.   Thanks, Shirley

 Hi Spirit, It's taken me awhile to respond. I ordered a film through the History Center..The Latter-Day Saints Church here is Jonesville. They ordered a film (costing only for mailing, $5.50). I viewed the film from Muckton parrish in England. When she ordered it, she said that the film was the closest to Navenby. It was the parrish Muckton...showed nothing. That's the story on the film.  Did I mention before that my husband and I traveled some in Hillsdale county taking many snapshots of family markers. Now I have to find out how I can resize them so they could be added to Cemetery postings.

Thanks for the effort and search but those particular Hunts don't fit; dates or place. This sure is a hard family to piece together. But it gives me something to play with. Have a wonderful Christmas and New Year holiday.

This Genealogical Center that is fortunately located in Jonesville--where I live--is at the Laterday Saint's church. She ( the gal helping me), found a microfilm listed,as can be purchased, from the church and she filled out the form and I paid $5.50 for it. Hopefully, it will show birth or Bap. dates for Richard Hunt and maybe even children born....just maybe. I guess with any ordering of films, it has to be done through a Center. I'll ask. It takes sime weeks before the film is delivered to Center, I'll let you know further about this procedure when I can. I'm crossing my fingers that the film shows something.

Past 2 weeks been I've been hunting grave markers on Findagrave.com and have had some success. Also, before it got cold and windy here, tromped around 6-7 Cemeteries to get pictures of my husband's and my family members in Hillsdale county. It's been an interesting time. I even made my introduction in the Historical Center right here in Jonesville. Very helpful and found some info and ordered my 1st film of Church records in England. The rest of the time I've been plugging in name and places in my Tree. Great fun!!!!

Fianlly, found where I can thank you for the grave pictures of Richard F. Hunt. I really do appreciate the effort you put out. I'll be working on that family for a long time. Thanks again. Have a Great Day, Shirley
