Lakeview Cemetery 920 Roosevelt, Howell, Michigan, 48843.
I asked as a child where the Yearnds came from, and the answer was “Howell”. When we moved to Detroit in, one of the first things I did was make the short drive to Howell to see what I could find out.
I found the Yearnd family, spelled Yournd in the cemetery indices at the library, so off I went, to section A, lot 17:
The smaller stone is Lizzie, then in order: Charles, Lena, Augusta, here is a close-up view of each.
Lizzie, daughter 1878-1890
You can see my reflection on these photos. I do have some from the side where my presence isn’t quite so evident. I’m posting these, to show that everyone can learn something. Since the day I took these I have learned how to keep most of myself out of most photos!
I have also learned how to look for every possible spelling of a surname. Every one, and lots that I would never think of. My story of looking for more information on this family is posted here.
