In Reply to: DOKEY markers in Lee Township cemetery, Michigan by Tim White of 71

Noticed these grave markers in the Robinson cemetery, south of Gobles, Michigan

HENRY D. DOKEY
DIED
APR. 2. 1875

Ag'd 3 years

Fairly legible except for the date.

There is a marker to the right of Henry's that says

RALPH D.

This one is very worn. Not sure if the initial after Ralph is a D or an O. Looks more like a D.

The date is too hard to read without guessing.

These are the only two Dokey markers I noticed in the general area.

Also, while looking up some death records for Van Buren County, I ran across an entry for Emory Dokey and thought it might be useful to somebody.

Emory Dokey Book D Page 61
died Aug 8 1912 in Decatur Village
of cancer of the liver
74y 0m 19d

I calculated his birthdate to about July 20th, 1838.

Is this Emory the son of Stephen and the brother of Abram, David and Edward and the rest of the brothers and sisters?

later!

Tim
