The next window was a memorial for Lizzie Benjamin. Lizzie came from Fon Du Lac, WI. to Eagle with her parents, the Stinsons, when she was two years old. Two years later her parents died and she became a member of the family of Mr. & Mrs. Frank Williams. Lizzie joined the church by letter in 1881. Following her marriage to Elmer Benjamin in 1885, she became a Grand Ledge resident. Lizzie died May 26, 1911, just before the corner stone laying for the church building.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact
