    I am writing the first book from the American point of view about 19th century rotunda panoramas. These were the biggest paintings in the world, 50 x 400=20,000 square feet, housed in their own rotundas which were 16-sided polygons. Chicago in 1893 had 6 panorama companies and 6 panorama rotundas.

    What is the date and source for your quote by William Wehner in the Detroit bar, trash talking the Reed & Gross company.?

    I would like to bring you up-to-date on my project

    Much info to share
    Kind regards,

    Amy, I just learned about your website. It’s fabulous. Please check out ours – – Ours being the website for the Hamtramck Historical Commission and the new Hamtramck Historical Museum. We just opened and are expanding our operations. I’d like to invite you to come down some time to see it. We had over 3,200 visitors last year, which was our first full year of operation. I’ve written six books on Hamtramck and have two more in production, so if you ever need any info on the city, I’ve got it.

    I’m on the Redford Twp Historical Commission (check facebook).
    Re Redford twp. Cemetery: Israel Bell is the same person as Azarias Bell.
    For great info on the redford (Bell Branch) cemetery check
    Re Holy Cross Cemetery (have family by marriage there). Did you notice the area is divided up by tombstone size? Curious. I have explored many cemeteries and haven’t noted that before. There are no small tombstones in the areas with large gravemarkers.
    Found your blog when trying to google history of this cemetery.
    Keep it up! Love someone else going aroundvisiting cemeteries and discovering the richness there. I photoed many of Kalamazoo Co.’s old cemeteries for posting on the internet.

    I have been trying to find a contact phone number but have been unsuccessful. I have traced many members of my family tree to the cemetery but was hoping to get further information than what is listed on the site including a possible map of the plot locations. Have I missed the site listing the number or is there no official office for the cemetery?

    Somebody phoned me yesterday (June 30,2015) regarding THE NIGHT TRAIN.
    I misunderstood the message.
    Forgive me.

    I found your blog a few weeks upon after I googled a topic. I’d didn’t take the time to subscribe to your newsletter. Now, I again googled a topic and your blog again appeared. Subscription entered, I’m not wait No for the third time to be the charm. Your blog can be described by far too many adjectives all meaning outstanding. I look forward to reading more than just the solo topics!

    I find your work very interesting and would like to add another suffragist to your list: Laura Smith Haviland, who was known mainly for her abolition work, but apparently was also active in the women’s suffrage movement: She is buried in the Raisin Valley Cemetery in Adrian.

    I thought you would like to know you misspelled the word “trys”. Silly mistakes are a pet peeve of mine and they can ruin your website’s credibility. In the past I’ve used a tool like to keep mistakes off my website.

    Dear Sir or Ms., I am wondering I Historic Detroit .Org would let Amtrak trains that go to and from Detroit, Michigan go to and from the Michigan Central Station again and also the commuter trains that go to and from Detroit also go to and from the Michigan Central Station if there are any commuter trains that go to and from Detroit. If so, can you convince Amtrak to help you by contacting Amtrak at AMTRAK.COM and if you could also convince the Detroit City Government, the Wayne County Government, and the Michigan State Government to help you if necessary. Thank you! Sincerely, Tom Corn

  14. Tom Corn - October 11, 2017 @ 10:29 am

    Dear Sir or Ms., I am wondering if Historic Detroit could re store the Michigan Central Station in Detroit, Michigan and if you have to have money for that and if you could contact Amtrak at AMTRAK.COM about funding that and if you may also have to contact the Detroit City Government, the Wayne County Government and the Michigan State Government about funding that station. I’m wondering if all the Amtrak trains that go to and from Detroit, Michigan would go to and from the Michigan Central Station. And the same thing with commuter trains that go to and from Detroit if there are any commuter trains that go to and from Detroit. I don’t have an e-mail address but I’m usually easy to reach at home most evenings during the week at 301-816-0422. I did look for a way to sent you a message a while back. Thank you !

    Hi team at Nighttraintodetroit

    How are you?

    Do you offer article placements on your site:

    – We would get the article written which will fit the nature/topic of your site.
    – In the article there is a good chance there will be a link going to a gaming/betting review site, which will be very well integrated.
    – Payment is made via Paypal.

    What are your rates for such a placement?

    Thank you

    I am a Digital Marketing Specialist for a Creative Agency.
    I was doing some industry benchmarking for a client of mine when I came across your website.
    I noticed a few technical errors which correspond with a drop of website traffic over the last 6-8 months which I thought I would bring to your attention.
    After closer inspection it appears that your site is lacking in 4 key
    1- Website Speed
    2- Link Diversity
    3- Domain Authority
    4- Competition Comparison
    I can send you over the report cwhich shows all of the above and so much more which wilcl help you at least improve your site, its rankings and traffic.
    I would love the chance to help as well however, this report will at least give you a gauge on the quality of what I do. If you are interested then please share your reqCuirement and contact details.
    Is this the best email to send it to?
