Bio and Links

My family research started in 1980.

In August 2007, I founded the Angel Babies Memorial Project. The mission of this project is to discover and record the gravesites of infants and children who died in New York City and other states between 1798 - 1948 and link them genealogically to their families.
Every memorial serves as a tribute to a youngster who died much too soon. They all deserve to be remembered and honored, and given a sense of dignity and love in death that may have been denied to them in life. By doing so, they will not be forgotten.

RE: Al Foley; Michael James Murray
Sorry to say that his daughter has no memory of the persons you asked about. However, in looking at the parents' wedding photo, I was astonished to recognize him as a navy man in a photograph I digitized. If you confirm that your father is in the photograph, I can post to your memorial.

RE: Al Foley
Check the memorial. I posted military photo. My wife knows nothing of her grandfather's friends during his youth. I will speak to Al's daughter.

Information is correct on Al Foley.

RE: Al Foley
Good Morning Jim. Absolutely confident that he is the same person you know. My wife says that she knows nothing about his neighborhood friends. I will speak to her mother, Al's daughter Ruth. I became interested in the family and gathered information and photographs. I have intermediate level skills with Photoshop, and I salvaged many of the old photographs, digitizing them. I will post a head shot of Al on the memorial.
