That problem has being solved. It might have been sooner if I'd known that he was really a junior. I had no idea that his father has the same name. So that is put to bed, outside of citing actual records. That will come.

What is your level of genealogy knowledge?
Beginning Family History Researcher
If you are a genealogy expert, what are your specialties?
Far from it! I blunder through, collecting info, reams of paper, and conflicting tidbits. Now the only help I can offer is to find a grave marker....you giving me an idea which county in MI.... and go take and provide a picture to you.. As I increase in knowledge of genealogy , I may be more of assisstance to anyone.
For what reason did you start genealogy research?
I have seven generation lineages, done by others on the Parmelee's; Bacon/Hunt/Hewitt; Vreeland. I am related to the Parmelee/Hewitt union and am now married to Vreeland. There are still members I'd like to verify, mainly outside of U.S.
I sure hope so Shirley and if not then I know that the inscriptions will now be seen forever either via internet or book. I'm sure someone will write them down. The cemetery I just started had 30 names listed, now has 103 and still adding and have my photoing to do when I am in the area again and will finish it on that day. I've placed my own family website on hold and not doing enough on Ancestry, which isn't good. So much I want to do, so little of me. It is a cooler and rainy day today. Take care, time for FAG.

I did go to that small cemetery and photoed at least 1/2 of it. That took 3 hrs because I write down what the older stones state since most of the time they can't be read on a photo. I think it is the oldest in the area since ppl where buried in 1700's. I have more than doubled the name listings so far and found a lot of loose ends for ppl and missing members. Also filled a request. There is another request but I believe the stone is now gone. I believe I have his wife's. South Middleboro Cemetery, Middleboro, Plymouth, Mass. And I found a couple of my direct family there so I have to see how they tie in on Ancestry. Haven't looked, yet. Hope you are having a great wkend. Spirit
Yep, July was very hot. I got out a little bit. Been pretty much under the weather. I am listing pics on FAG now. Added over 100 to one cemetery and still working on it. I may go to another, much smaller one, tomorrow. I didn't catch the name of it so I can't check to see if it was already done or not. Hope not. When you take pics with your camera use the smallest pixal size you can, some cameras say vga or vega. You can use a free site, picnik.com to downsize, crop and fix the colors. Glad you got use out of FAG and now you are loading onto it. We need all the help we can get. I have over 200 requests but my daughter totaled the truck a couple of days bef Christmas so I have no car at this time. Lucky she wasn't hurt or killed, it was a serious accident. Enjoy your new hobby.
I don't know about that. The Baker lineage is so difficult that serious genealogists are having DNA done, apx $350 a pop. I don't have a male in the line to have the test done and I am stuck 1800's on only my 4th generation.
All I know is my GGG Grandfather was born in NY, or so it appears, and was killed aft being a POW for a couple of months in Virginia during the Civil War. Appears he had one son and 2 wives, once divorced aft a forced marriage.
I'm a volunteer for FindAGrave that is how I knew how to find him. I looked on FindAGrave in England and America for the other members you had listed but couldn't find them.
Another way you may find them is through this link: http://www.magravestones.org
This is a Massachusetts link but they have them for all the states. I haven't been an active volunteer for this site because sadly it takes longer to upload each person and they are very rigid with photos and more.
I wish you the best. I have 2 large brickwalls myself. My maternal and paternal ggg grandfather's.
