Hi Barb,

I hope this note finds you and your family doing well.

It was so sad to hear of Lisa's passing. I am honored to have sponsored her memorial. We loved seeing her on Channel 7 News and often wished she was the anchor.

May she rest in peace and may her family find the strength to endure their terrible loss.

God bless you, Clair

Calvary Cemetery in Queens, New York (Woodside).
I called the office and they said it was in the new part and gave me the section. I requested a photo but as you mentioned before there may not be any volunteers in the area.

Barb,

Just wanted to let you know that I did drop your friend Jimmy a note of thanks (and mentioned your name so he'd have some idea what I was talking about). Anyway, it was very thoughtful of both of you. Hope you're having a great week!

RE: grave photos Harry J. & Teresa McGowan
Thank you for the information. After 8 months I found the cemetery they are in. I'm from Virginia and cannot make a trip there. Also,I located my grandfather who died in Harrison & was buried in Calvary. He died before I was born. It helps to
have the grave markers as a Memorial to them.

RE: Martha Twohig Grave
Thanks - I actually have sent a message requesting the pictures get added to the others but haven't heard back yet. On that other list of Twohigs that you sent me, I'm just curious what was searched. It said RED = added to Find a Grave, but there weren't any colors and they're not all in Find-a-Grave. Some of those Twohigs are in my direct line and I've added them here but so far I'm holding off contacting Calvary for a bit to ask about them for plot location as Calvary charges $90 to research the first person and $5 to get the info for each additional name in the plot. I've had even more fun trying to get info from Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in New Rochelle since they had so many records destroyed by fire in the 1970s and tell me they don't have people whose graves (with headstones) I went to many times each year while I was growing. Stay warm - I hear you folks have more snow falling today. M-L

RE: Re: Riddells
Oh, thank you for posting the photo of what is possibly the unmarked graves for Joseph and Annie Riddell. Would it be possible for you to go to their memorial pages and make a note that the cross with nothing written on it and the space next to it are possibly their gravesides? Can't thank you enough for all that you do for those of us unable to go to Saint Raymonds. We are in the center of the U.S. so to see a visual is very helpful. I will try to pass the favor forward.

Martha Twohig Grave
Barb - Thanks so much for surprising me and taking a picture of Martha Twohig's grave! Once I found out that her husband John along with his parents had been moved to the same grave as her youngest son John I thought it sad that Martha was never moved there too. I can only guess that since it was over 20 years later (and her sons were 2 and not quite 4 when she passed away), more than likely no one remembered the correct day/year or plot info for her. Anyway, how nice of you to take your time to find the grave and take a picture adding some flowers as a marking for me to see the actual grave location. You are awesome!
Thanks again and I hope they're wrong and you guys aren't getting more snow... M-L

RE: Re: Riddells
Your efforts to find the headstone for my great-grandparents exceeded expectations. The weather was awful - yet you tried. Thank you very much. It is disappointing to learn that there is no stone but at least now we know.

Thank you so much for fulfilling my photo request. What a shame it's unmarked. I find that very sad.

It's really nice that there are so many volunteers to do this for people. I appreciate it very much.

Sincerely,
Allison Driscoll

Twohig Headstone Picture
Thank you SO MUCH for taking the picture of the Twohig headstone (Michael, Mary J, John E, and John). It took quite a while for St Raymond's to solve the mystery of where Michael, Mary J and John had been moved to...I had visited the cemetery about 9 years ago (I don't live in NY) and was given a different plot number for them which had no headstone. However, my dad and aunt had told me they'd had to "clean snow off" and "plant flowers by" a family headstone when they were young and lived on Mayflower Ave, I knew there had to be a headstone somewhere. I kept researching, getting more death dates, etc. and re-contacted the cemetery multiple times. Finally, Janet from the cemetery office kept finding bits and pieces until last week when she found the key info that they were moved to this plot by my grandfather in 1924 --- but the records incorrectly listed their burial dates as the move date instead of their original burial dates. So, I was finally able to request a picture. Knowing your weather has been so bad this winter, I thought that it would probably be months before anyone responded. Instead, you took this picture within days! I can't express how much this means to me. I think it's wonderful that you take this pictures for others. What a wonderful gift to those of us who live so many miles away! M-L p.s. - you suggested I change Mary J's birth year in her memorial to 1851, however, I have a number of other docs with the correct birth years for both her and Michael...both were incorrect on the headstone :-)

It is interesting to see a visual of some of the snow on the east coast. You all have really been hit hard! Thank you for your effort and I look forward to seeing the "after the thaw" photo.

Thanks so much for the photos and the information that I had the wrong Saint Raymond's. I have updated that information.

Again, thank you so much for what you do!

Teacher Sleuth
RE: Edit on plot location
You're right about the grave being right in the middle. You're also right about the depth of the snow. What you don't know is that I'm nuts enough to try it. I walked to the grave as slowly as I could, and occasionally sunk in the snow. I was not happy to discover there is no stone on that grave. All I could post is an empty space with my glove on it. Serves me right.
