RE: Sam Nappo
Thanks for your help. Sam has 4 living siblings. Libra, his sister, is 84 and a real treat to be around. The last name in Italy was Nippo. We went the awful day Detroit was flooded. Plan to go again next spring. Hope to pick a better day. My graveyard buddy, Ellinda, has not been able to go "graving" because of a bad back. With luck she will be better by Spring. There's safety in numbers. If you would like, I will let you know when we are going and maybe we can team up. Carol

HI: I see the picture on his memorial-thanks. They don't have Huron Twp as a choice in their drop down window. I just wrote it in his memorial that he died in Huron Twp.

Thank you for leaving a tribute for Gladys Howl (135971378). Minor point, it says '..... gentleman'. Joan was a woman.

RE: Re: Pirvu photo requests
Hi Lady in Black,

Thank you for taking the time to take pictures of the Pirvu family grave.
My quest for the Pirvu family grave begun when I discovered your picture with the grave of the Pirvu's daughter Viola that died in 1929.

Regards from Romania!

Sam Nappo
That horrible day that Detroit flooded, was the day my son had promised to take me to Trinity and Woodmere. We hadn't watched the new reports and had to take many detours. The cemeteries muddy, but I didn't know when he would be able to take me again so we tried our best. With us was my 84 year old friend Libra Cramer (nee: Nappo) Sam's sister. She told me his name really was Salvatore but everyone called him Sam. I am going to get more information from her. Need correct spelling of name and full dates of events instead of just years. I have found your name many times. You are doing an awesome job. Thanks for the concern. Carol

Louis Purol and daughter, Arlyn
Thank you so much for going out to the cemetery and looking a second time for Mr. Purol's grave marker, and for creating a memorial for his little girl. Few people would have invested the extra time and effort that you did. I really appreciate your help.

Best Wishes,

I have been searching for my maternal grandfather's brother George Phillip DeWest. He searched his entire life for his brother. I believe this George is my grandfather's brother. Do you have any other information?

I just wanted to say thank you for posting the picture of my husband's grave. He was cremated and most of his remains were buried with his father in Mount Carmel Wyondotte Garden. It is a form of closure to see the grave and now maybe I can begin to heal. ... Thank You from the bottom of my heart!

Thank you for the edit info for Lillie Outlaw! Are you related? How did you receive your information? I'm curious because she is my great grandmother. Thanks again!

Thanks for the heads up on her death year. I doubt much of anything was "open" in Michigan in the year 1196...LOL Thanks again

Carl/Charles Papke
HI: Thanks for the Papke picture. All census data states he was born in Germany, not Michigan. I think his death record is incorrect. I don't know why he would have died in Northville when he was living in Huron Township at the time, unless he was visiting one of his children. I'm going to stick with Wayne Co, MI for death...

Hello to The Lady In Black-

Your Request for Pics
I live near the Roseland Park Cemetery and went over there today to photograph two headstones you requested, Everett and Ruth Pulk. Thanks for the grave location. I think I found it but due to the flooding, it was underwater. Also, the ground stone was overgrown with grass.

I'll go back in a few days and take the picture.

Thank you for letting me know about them. I do not know who they are or how they are related. The family members we have still living there are in the burbs.
