Hi, I received your latest message via e-mail from Ancestry re David McKee but I could not reply to it. There is some kind of mix-up on Ancestry regarding my user name because it is different that the one on rootsweb. The best way to correspond with me is through my regular e-mail suzyfrtz@gmail.com.

OK. Back to business. I found Hannah Miller on familysearch in the Michigan Death Certificates born 2 Aug. 1859 China Township, St. Clair Co., died 22 Nov. 1940 Detroit, Wayne Co., parents William Lindow and Minnie.

I don't know when I'll be getting up to the library in Port Huron. I'm having alot of company soon. If you can wait until the middle/end of July I will stop by and look up the obits for you. Remind me if you don't hear from me.

About David McKee. In the 1894 census he, wife Alvina, and children Ellen and William were living on Pleasant Street in Marine City. My guess is that he is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Marine City. The names in the cemetery records on-line came from tombstone transcriptions that were done by the St. Clair Co. Family History Group in the 1980's. If his stone was damaged, or there wasn't one in the first place, his name would not have been recorded. Some of the graves located on Belle River actually fell into the river. So your best bet is to call the Marine City clerk 810-765-8830. The older records can be very incomplete. For example, I have seen the map which gives a whole section of the cemetery as a blank "Old graves" with no individual names. But it is worth a call. The other cemetery in Marine City is Catholic, Holy Cross. There are some small family cemeteries around the area, but I think the transcriptions are all on-line.
