Doing genealogy since about 1996. Am interested in helping others find the burial place of their ancestors because others have done so much for me. Walking through cemeteries can be peaceful and the exercise is a gooood thing (hehe). Any photo I take may be copied for any purpose though I would like some credit (I guess a little ego is permissable?! hehe)
Silvie Zambelli Hi, Thanks for figuring out the stone. I couldn't read it. So, there is a copy of the obit on her memorial. The date of birth you sent conflicts with the age listed on the obit. I've added the date you supplied but you might double check it. Here the bio is:
The Times-Picayune. November 11, 1899 Page 4
ZAMBELLI - On Friday, Nov. 10, 1899, at 6:30 p. m., Widow F. Zambelli, born Gabrielle Silvy Vautree, aged 84 years, a native of Toulouse, France.
The friends and acquaintances of the family are respectfully invited to attend the funeral which will take place This (Saturday) Afternoon at 3 o'clock, from the residence of her son, A. F. Zambelli, Bayou St. John, near the Soldiers' Home. ----------------------
Wid S. F. Zambelli 10 Nov 1899 Silvie Vautrey (Vauthrey) Zambelli b. 1819 – d. 10 Nov 1899 Not sure what the ‘F’ is for. Maiden name spelled ‘Vautree’ in obit. Maiden spelled ‘Vauthrey’ in husband Frederick’s will.
RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 134824369 Follow-up....I see you're not airforcewife! I should have read your profile. Lol! Ok for any changes you want made, go to the memorial then click the edit tab. You can do changes to every section you see listed. Find A Grave will have me look at the changes and approve or disapprove. A
RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 134824369 Hi Sharon, Are you us_airforcewife? I believe I receive several edits from you which is great. Looks like you figured out how to do that . Guessing the email came before you figured it out unless I am misunderstanding your message. Find A Grave doesn't have a category for"widow" so I use Mrs since she had to be married to be a widow. Hopefully I am doing that ok. Lastly you mentioned that you were researching this family for a friend. Lucky her! What a kind thing to do. If you need any memorials transferred to your care or hers, please let me know. I have no reason to keep these. A
