|Patricia Ibbotson||RE: Anthony Assenmacher|
Anthony is his name and the grave marker is wrong on the spelling of his name and also his date of death. If you check Family Search you will see it listed under the spelling Ossenmaoohie with the date of death as 29 Jan 1922 in Bad Axe. The newspaper death notice is correct.

I am wondering where you got the information about Melvin Orr being a night watchman and being lost at sea. I assume because this was Michigan, "lost at sea" means somewhere in the great lakes? I would like to find out more about this guy and not sure where to start. Figured since you had this much information, maybe you could point me in the right direction. Thank you.

Memorial complete. Sincerely appreciate all your help w/ these memorials.
A genuine pleasure "doing business" w/ you. It's refreshing to have F-A-G members, like yourself, that appreciate the gravity of this site. The grounds w/in the cemetery walls are consecrated and it behooves everyone @ this site to recognize that; this isn't a "numbers game".
Additionally, have encountered numerous memorials flowered by you; quite an impressive and admirable library of "holy cards". Family members happening upon this site, will be genuinely touched by your respect and dignity of their loved ones. You're to be commended.

The following stone was next to Mr. John Osmialowski at St. Hedwig:
Feb. 18, 1914 - Nov. 30, 2006
DEAR WIFE & MOTHER
Upon your origination of her memorial, the photo can be added.
Did you supply the location for Mr. Osmialowski? Sincere gratitude for that information.

Transfer complete of 4 Grebinski family members buried @ Our Lady of Hope. (2 additional members located by photo requestor of Mr. Walter Grebinski.)
Mr. & Mrs. John Grebinski were in close proximity to Mr. & Mrs. Walter Grebinski; however, cannot find any corroborating evidence to a family link. (There's a Vincent Grebinski buried in Florida on Find A Grave's data base - uncertain if he's the child of Mr. & Mrs. Walter Grebinski.)
Sincerest apologies for this lack of information; hopefully, you have more family information and can fill in the blanks.
FYI: Mrs. Virginia Piotrowski does not yet, have a stone. Her final resting place is w/in my usual St. Hedwig route; therefore, a stone placement should be noted and her memorial updated, at that time. Will post w/ any progress.

|SourPersimmon||RE: Christine Osmialowski et. al.|
Mr. and Mrs. Osmialowski's photos have been added to their respective memorials and the grave site photo has been added to Mr. and Mrs. Frank Swastek's memorials (the office confirmed they share the plot).
There was no John Osmialowski near the Leo Osmialowski grave site, so that photo may be delayed until next weekend (if you get a location before that time frame, just drop a reply).
Per your edit for Mr. Walter Grebinski at Our Lady of Hope: would you like the transfer? My preference is for these memorials to be w/ those that knew the individuals if family isn't available.

|SourPersimmon||RE: Swastek Family additions|
Good Evening, Young Man.
We have two issues:
- It appears as though Mr. & Mrs. Swastek do not yet have a stone in place. While this was not confirmed through the office, the surrounding stones confirmed the location. Additionally, the site indicated a cremation had taken place which the office confirmed. As a firm believer even unmarked graves deserve a photo, a photo will be provided, tomorrow (today's rain hampered all progress).
- We may need to transfer Mr. Leo Osmialowski's memorial to St. Hedwig from Holy Sepulchre. Again, the rain hampered most efforts, but the photo provided seems to indicate he's buried @ St. Hedwig. Rest assured, the stone will be cleaned and a better photo provided; my concern was to deter others from looking for a grave that probably isn't @ Holy Sepulchre.
- A photo of Mrs. Osmialowski can also be provided upon your origination of her memorial @ St. Hedwig. Her information is as follows:
Christine M. Osmialowski
MOTHER - GRANDMOTHER
March 5, 1933 - July 24, 2009
Will update you, tomorrow, on my progress.

The Swastek Family of Piotr, Mary and Jan have completed photos.
Your additions of Frank and Irene did not go unnoticed; however, the photos may have to wait for the weekend. (A short walk-through near the Piotr final resting place was unsuccessful and alas, the office hours have been reduced to 9 am opening.)
Will update you as soon as possible.

Deepest apologies for the delay. The photos were taken on an overcast day and do not due the monument justice.
The Swastek gentlemen should have their photos by tomorrow and Mrs. Swastek's photos will be updated as well (photo quality very poor).
Will advise upon completion.

Your photo request for Mrs. Mary Swastek revealed the following names not included in the Find A Grave database:
1891 - 1951
Jan P. Swastek
1914 - 1970
Upon your origination of the above two memorials, the photos can be added.

Looked correct on my computer, but reinstalled anyways. Steve
Added by steve byron on Jul 20, 2016 6:28 PM
Jim.. I've completed 3 of the 4 requests for Pawlus however your request for Joseph Pawlus appears incorrect... Emily's husband was Stanley A Pawlus 1913-1998...
I also have family photos for:
Louis Pawlus 1889-1983
Frank A Pawlus 1917-2001
Pauline Pawlus 1894-1982
Patricia A Pawlus 1939-1957
Please change Joseph to Stanley and let me know is you create these additional memorials.

Find A Grave does not have Rotsraver Twp. in their system. So I just listed the death place as Westmoreland co. PA.

Thank you for creating the memorials for my great aunt Dorothy Howe and Uncle Bob. I appreciate the transfer very much.

|Patricia Ibbotson||RE: Find A Grave memorial duplicates|
It's not just your problem. I try and check before I add a memorial but sometimes create a duplicate because the name may be spelled slightly differently. Sometimes it just happens like when I add a name and two memorials get created. There are just glitches in the system. One of the women who has added memorials to Mt Kelly was very upset about the duplicates and left me a nasty message so I went through them all and think I found the duplicates. Maybe not. We do the best we can.

|Georgia Clark||Mary Margaret Terns Demick|
Sorry-I was looking at so many of my relatives that I put down the wrong name-used her mother's maiden name as her married name. This is the person that I was wondering where the middle name of Margaret came from. One of her nieces was a Mary Margaret but I have not found any record where Mary had a middle name-none of her siblings had a middle name either.
Thanks for the prompt response.

Hi Jim, I noticed you had done a memorial for Henry H. Taylor (Find A Grave #145435628) with a death date matching my ancestor, Henry H. Taylor (Find A Grave #114683215). Somewhat common name, so it may just be a coincidence, but in case they're the same man, you'll see where he actually is interred. Hope this helps, Doug Stiverson (Find A Grave#47449295).

Jim, I'm sorry that I haven't gotten back to you until now but I've been a little dormant in regards to Find A Grave activity. I just noticed the email. Please help me with the cemetery and location for Frederick. I will do my bets to remove the photo per your request. Richard died this past August and I really stopped all activity. I am happy to do this for you though. I hope all is well with you also.

|Renee||RE: Woodmere Cemetery|
If I do not have a map, I make a list of all requests for each section & then basically wondered around looking at any headstones I could find.
However this is very time consuming & many flat headstones are half ground covered, again time consuming to uncover.
Gail Hershenzon volunteers on Saturdays at Woodmere. She also works as a genealogist, tour guide, does family research, takes photos....all this she gets paid for. So I think she may have issues with other volunteers who do photos free, when she the same thing for pay.
At any rate, you are more than welcome to join us.
I will contact you when I go this spring. I work M-F so Saturdays & Sundays are my cemetery days.

Can you please call the office for exact grave locations? I was fulfilling some requests last year & found the staff will NOT give out info or maps unless you are family.
This makes it very difficult for Find A Grave volunteers. I do have some maps to work with, but not all. Also this is a very large, old cemetery with NO lot markers. Many headstones have fallen, sunk & are ground covered. I have pinpointed some that were 4-6 inches down.
Since the cemetery staff is unhelpful, any other help for the volunteers would be appreciated.
