Tombstone Tuesday - George W Butcher

This is my maternal grandfather's tombstone. I fought in first WW. I'm still trying to track down more of his family. His father was married twice and had lots of children, but it's not clear.

It's funny that it says his service was Massachusetts, since he was from New Hampshire and his draft card says he registered in New Hampshire. Still trying to figure that one out.

This can be found in the Flushing Cemetery, Flushing, Genesee, Michigan. Thanks to Jayne at FindAGrave for taking this picture for me.

Thankful Thursday - Find A Grave

Thankful Thursday – Create a post that expresses gratitude for a person (past or present), resource, family history tool or anything connected to you or your and family history that has had a positive impact on y our life. This prompt has been suggested by Carolyn Murphy of Family Tree Gal and has been in use by Mary Warren of Mary’s Musings for the past year.

I love Find A Grave. I've been lucky enough to have others look up and take pictures of some of my family headstones in New Hampshire when I live in California. I do try to do the same for others as I try to contribute photos from my local cemetery myself.
