For today’s “Tombstone Tuesday” post, I would like to share the tombstone of Merle Hemingway McCormack (yes, we are related to THOSE Hemingways!). Merle was the oldest child of William E. and Lavina Jane (Hemingway) McCormack. His younger siblings were Alta Lyleth McCormack (my grandmother) and Ruth Eleanor McCormack.
Merle was born on 18 Apr 1900 in Otter Lake, Michigan and died on 3 Jan 1959 in Grayling, Michigan. He died of asphyxiation in a cabin that he either owned or rented.Merle is buried in Flint’s (Michigan) Gracelawn Cemetery.
Thanks for stopping by!
