Friends of Forest Home Cemetery, Inc.

Supporters of Friends of Forest Home
Cemetery have a unique opportunity
to sponsor the refurbishment of Civil
War veterans' headstones in various
sections throughout the cemetery.
We use a non-toxic, environmentally
safe product recommended by professional
conservators that is specifically formulated for this purpose.

To adopt a veteran's marker, simply browse through the biographies below, make your selection, and click on the "Donate" button.  Or if you prefer, email us your choice along with your contact information (by clicking here) so that we may reserve your selection. Then, mail your check made payable to "Friends of Forest Home Cemetery" to:  Paula Christiansen,
 108 W. South St., Greenville MI 48838.

Upon completion, you'll receive a photo of the cleaned headstone and you can be proud to know that you played a part in keeping the memory of these veterans "green."
This page is dedicated
to our dear friend
 and co-founder,
 Gerry Christiansen,
 who passed away
on October 7, 2016. 
Gerry was an active 
member of the Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War Camp 1 and the Grand Rapids Civil War Round Table.  It was his love of this historic period that inspired Gerry to develop our Adopt-A-Veteran program, so that we could continue to honor those who fought and died for freedom.
