Dear Kim -

Nice to hear from you. I will try to help where I can. I'm sorry to learn about Stanely, we lost many heros in that war and it seems he was one of them.

First off the American Legion might be able to help you on the particulars of Stanely's death. Call the post nearest you and ask. Someone there will know something.

If Stanely was from Michigan at the time of his death, the Michigan Veterans Trust Fund, located in Lansing Michigan will most certainly be able to access the information for you. My father Frank Schmidt helped create the Trust Fund in 1949 and he worked there until 1989 when he finally retired. He was a WWII vet and saw action from Utah Beach to the Bulge to the re-occupation of Checksolvakia (sp).

Back to Teeples. I will tell you what I know about my branch. Jacob Teeples and his brother George came to White Lake and Highland townships from upstate New York in the middle to late 1820's. Jacob married a woman by the name of Sarah Jane Stephens and they had many (8) children. One of those children was Albert Teeples who was born in 1846 and died in 1912. Albert married Hannah Bailey in January of 1874. Hannah died in Feb of 1913. Hannah and Albert had several children, one of which was Lottie who was born in December of 1875. Lottie married Charles Powelson in 1891. Lottie and Charles had four children, one of which was my grandfather, Alford Powelson.

Where is the cemetery you mention? Michigan? Where in Michigan? Do you have any other info? places? dates? Also there is a newsletter called Teeples People published out of Toronto. I don't subscribe yet, but I've heard it is quite comprehensive. Some gal by the name of Anne Rahncount (the spelling isn't even close to being correct). Find out more about her and the newsletter by reading more postings in genforum.

Be good


I will keep looking.
