|Greg Burns||Martin Farrell|
This is my great grand uncle who was an inmate at CIH who died there in 1904. I am having a VERY difficult time in tracking his records and all I need to do is have confirmation of who his parents were and that he is buried on the hospital grounds possible grave #3958. I have information on hand that tracks him to his birth in Co. Roscommon, Ireland in 1839. Feeling 99% sure though that it's my Martin.
Anyway...I have a lot of "feelers" out trying to help with his ID. Once I know, I will memorialize him. I am hoping that the NYC Mental Health Office in Albany will relinquish the info after I've sent lineage info to them beginning with me back to Ireland. We'll see. Any suggestions gratefully accepted. Thank you.

|sr/ks||Great to hear from you re: Geyer|
Thank you very much for the additional info on Mary Geyer, as well as for the clean-up you did on my dark photo of the graves of her and her husband. May I ask how on earth you found their marriage and her maiden name? I had really struggled with this and am so pleased you nailed it.

I see you added some things for Fannie Baronofsky. I have been looking forever for this info. Where did you find it?

You're most welcome! Happy to do it! She was such a young woman and apparently very loved by her family. "Anonymous" left a very loving tribute to her. I'm sure she is missed very much.

|Steve||RE: Francis DeGress|
Thanks for the quick response. Three brothers immigrated from Köln, Germany: William, Francis, and Jacob. William's memorial (20366608) has a biography (he worked for his brother's arms company in Chile and Mexico City) and links to his brothers and his wife Elizabeth (her memorial also appears as "De Gress"). I did a search for "De Gress" and there are only THREE "De Gress" in all of Find-a-Grave: William's brother Francis and his wife Virginia in Mexico City, and an infant in San Antonio. I requested photos of the Mexico City graves so we can see how the name is spelled on the marker. For better or worse, Find-a-Grave wants the memorial to spell the surname as it appears on the marker. I will let you know when the grave photos are posted.

You've done a great job with the memorials:) Thanks for linking uncle William to his folks. I just have come across some pics of him (one of which I have uploaded to his memorial). Thanks for your work on Find a Grave!

The info you sent on Geraldine Cade is consistent with my family history. She is buried in my family's plot in Skokie and was believed to be my grandfather's housekeeper. Thanks for the input. I have made an entry to update that Find A Grave memorial.

I am wondering where you were able to find the wonderful photo of my gg aunt,, Sarah Elizabeth Isgrigg and her husband that you have on her memorial? I was thrilled to see it, and she looks very much like her sisters. She was the only sibling we didn't have a photo of, so I thank you so much! Would love to know how you found it in case there may be others?
Thank you, Karyn

I am trying to find findagrave info of all the 1948 graduating class of Tioga HS which was the year Billie graduated. From your info, I will correct the info on Billie. Do you know the cemetery name of Billie's husband Cecil Jack Wilson??
Thanks for your help.

Would like to have further contact if you have any substantial information. Some of the information on his death certificate was incorrect, which makes sense. Do you have any further real information, paper info, that I might have copies of?

|Lucy Tucker||Pamela Werner/Wentworth Prentice|
You have an interesting site.
I am concerned that there are some major discrepancies on two memorials: Pamela werner and Wentworth Prentice. I can understand how it has happened; Midnight in Peking has been the recent source of interest in these two people, but it is badly wrong, and doesnt do either any favours. Prentice in particular.
www.pamelawernermurder.com has archive material for you to see, and it is very interesting to read ETC Werner's notes- he said the dental appointment was 1930....not 1936, a month before Pamela's death. (as one example of many errors)
I hope you find it interesting!

Hi Ash....thank you so very much for the info on Wanda Wms and his wife Minnie. This 'cousin' has been such a mystery for so long and am thrilled that you have shared the info. Will also pass it along to the Ellis County Gen Society. They were a big help while he was in Ellis County, OK but needed to complete his service info for their files. If you are interested in Wanda's line, please contact me at email@example.com. Be glad to share. THANK SO MUCH AGAIN! Judy

I am related to Eliza (Norton) Bottomley and her daughter Florence Grace Bottomley. Do you know if Florence had any children? She was married twice, but I can't find any descendants, can't access South African records anyway.

|Richard Slaney ||Re: Samuel Reed Cummings|
Your explanation of the discrepancy between his estimated birth date (1805) from his death certificate and the date on his grave stone makes sense to me. Thanks. Thanks also for clarifying the
assertion that he spent 8 years in Cook County. These are the "mystery" years that I need to explore further. One last thing, I found it strange that his age is listed on his death certificate in years/months/days. Can you explain to me the possible source of such a listing ? Would it be from a family member ? Who would figure that out and list it that way ?
