    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 – http://www.hamtramckhistory.org – 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.

    Am finishing up on “A History of Detroit’s Palmer Park.” Would you consider doing the foreword? Have also asked Dan Austin

    Will be in town filming for The Asy Network May 14th-17th… One of our programs, “Alone in the Dark” needs “haunted locations” for an up coming season two episode in Detroit. Any Assistance would greatly be appreciated! Thank you!

    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 http://redfordcemetery.blogspot.com/
    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.
    PLEASE CALL AGAIN

    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: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Laura_Smith_Haviland 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 SpellingScan.com to keep mistakes off my website.
