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: McCloskey Grave Photos
I see. I did not know that Lyons is an Irish name.

RE: McCloskey Grave Photos
I just told you. He was Arthur Patrick Golden, son of Michael John Golden and Rose Ann Nugent. Michael was my great-grandfather and his first wife was my great-grandmother.

RE: McCloskey Grave Photos
My grand-uncle, Arthur Patrick Golden, married Helen C. McCloskey (that is how our family spells the name). She was born 1909 and I believe she died in 1992, if my memory is intact! :) In our family (although ancestry would not agree), she would be considered to be my grand-aunt (by marriage).

McCloskey Grave Photos
My grand-uncle married a McCloskey, so the McCloskeys that are listed on the gravestone which you photographed are in my (Private) Family Tree on May I have your permission to save copies of these photos to post on their pages on my family tree? S.R.F.

RE: Morris Friedner - Washington Cemetery
Quick edit -- Morris is in Row 1, Grave 8. They did not have the grave specific information for Saul, Lottie or Rebecca -- not sure why. I have added the information they provided to each memorial. Debbie
