    • I looked (May 2009) for her grave at the Ishpeming Cemetery and it was not in the location that the cemetery record office said it was. They looked up in the original record and found someone had crossed out her name and said, "not here."
      I believe she is buried there, but the records are incorrect and so we couldn't find it.
      We looked again in July 2013 and found her buried in the same plot with her father, Richard Hendra
