This is a photo of a photo of Arthur Belknap (1869-1955) at the grave of his wife Martha Gisel Belknap (1869-1925) in Wauseon Union Cemetery in Wauseon, Ohio.  She died in a car accident that was mentioned in this previous post: A Tragedy and a Mystery.

Martha Gisel was born 21 June 1869 in Ohio.  In the 1880 Federal Census, she was living with her family in Franklin, Fulton County, Ohio.  Her parents were John Gisel (1843-1923) and Margaret Rhost (1848-1939), both were born in Switzerland.  Martha had a daughter Minnie on 31 Mar 1887 and married Arthur Belknap in Fulton County, Ohio on 5 March 1890.  They had four sons and a daughter (Floyd, Earl, Belva, Orville, and Kennard).  As mentioned in a previous post, Martha died in a car accident in Michigan on 15 September 1925.

I don’t know who this tombstone belongs to.  I could find no name or dates.  They are most likely facing  the tree stump now.  This stone is located in Newburgh Cemetery in Livonia, Mich.  http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=cr&CRid=1197

This cemetery is so strange to visit.  It is behind a building that used to be a church (?) and is now a theatre.  It has no fences and is located on a very busy road with lots of traffic noise.


Here’s a link to the complete cemetery transcriptions and pictures!  Very handy!  http://www.usgwarchives.org/mi/tsphoto/wayne/briggs.htm

Ancestors in this cemetery are all Everitts, uncles, aunts and cousins of my 4X Great-Grandfather George Baxter Everitt.

Newburgh Cemetery is an old cemetery located at on Ann Arbor Trail in Livonia, Michigan.   Many members of my Everitt ancestors (and one Bolt that I know of) are buried in this cemetery.  Apparently, Everitts were early settlers in the area.    The cemetery dates from 1827, when Salmon Kingsley, a Revolutionary War veteran, was buried here.Salmon Kingsley
