HISTORY: "A good share of the homesteaders who came to the Fortine area at this time settled in the Mud Creek - Grave Creek section. From Michigan came a whole tribe of relatives and acquaintances from the vicinity of Detroit, some of whom remained to become long-time residents of the valley. On upper Mud Creek there were Mr. & Mrs. Warren Weydemeyer and their daughter & son-in-law, the Roscoe Johnsons (who later went on to the Oregon coast); Mrs. Warren Weydemeyer's mother, Mrs. Predmore; Warren's brother, P. R. Weydemeyer and his wife, her brother, Emory Nash, and their son, Harry, and Harry's wife, the former Margaret Campbell.

BURIAL: Predmore, Harriet, b. 23 Oct 1830, no death date, w/o Amos Cass City CemeteryTuscola County, Michigan [Howard Johnston note: Harriet actually died and was buried (twice -- all the bodies from the early graveyard were moved to a new graveyard) in Eureka, MT. I suppose that when Amos died, they purchased 2 plots and headstones and her name and birth date were inscribed on the stone and when she died the death date would be inscribed on the stone].
