. I would like to give you my grandfather's name to add to the list for Burr Oak Cemetery. I know he is there as I have visited the grave. He shares a headstone with his wife (my grandmother). His name is Charles Ernest Gilcrist (no `H'). He was born the same day, month, & year as his wife, 24 April, 1855, in Burr Oak, MI. He died 8 Aug 1930 in Battle Creek, MI. His wife was Edna Roselia Williams Gilcrist. She died 15 April 1933 in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Their daughter is also there, Mattie (Martha) Edna Gilcrist. She was born in 1852 & died in 1875, then there is Charles N. Gilchrist, my great-grandfather. Between Mattie and Charles N there is a space, looks like a lot size but has no headstone or anything. Could Charles N's wife be there in an unmarked grave? She shows up in the obituary you have as being buried there in Burr Oak Cemetery. I have searched with no results, trying to locate her final resting spot. Finally last night I found the obituary on your site. Her name was Wealtha (Wealthy) Fidelia Tyler Gilchrist Chaffee. She remarried, after Charles N. died, to a Ariel Chaffee.
