Dear Victor, You and I can connect the dots here. I'm 64 and would have loved to share the rich geneological information I've dwelled with my father & grandfather. It's no small leap to see that that Charles Martel defeated Abdul Rahman Al Ghafiqi at Tours & his descendants are still with us trying to do the same. I'm believe the result is going to be the same. I would love to sit down with you & share Guiness! Roland M,Sandy,Oregon
Family Memorials Deaer Mr Scalone, It was so beautiful to read about your beautiful family and how important their work and heritage has been and continues to be. I commend you on your wonderful work. It is clear that your family had professional garment makers in their midst, all the photos reveal elegance and class. Your father was also a most extraordinary intellectual person of of his generation. Great compliments to this man and his ability to succeed in his legal career. I am very sure that his happy marriage was a wonderful support for him. yours sincerely, c
Hi Victor I'm doing my family tree and keep finding family members on findagrave that you left a flower for. Alfred,Albert,Joseph,Angelo Scalone and a sister Ida Muenzen,parents are Anthony and Aurora Milio-Scalone.Wondering if you might be related to them somehow..
Nicholas' Brenna's Grandson Hi Victor, I'm Steve Brenna, Steven Brenna's son who is Nicholas Brenna's son who is Victor Brenna's brother!! haha... mouthful! In doing research on Ancestry.com I came across your post on this website and was amazed to see all the information and pictures of my family!! this is incredible! Through looking at all the related family members I get the impression that the Scalone's are related through marriage? is that correct? I would love to connect to talk about some of the knowledge you have because what I am finding on this site is much more than I have ever known about... My fiancée and I just had our first son 3 months ago... we named him Nicholas Paul Brenna! Nicholas for my Grandfather (obviously) and Paul is my fiancée's fathers name. feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org... I would love to hear more about the Brennas if you would be willing to share. Thanks for adding all the info Victor.. it is much appreciated!
The approximate (according to google maps) location of Joseph's grave is
It's at St Denis Cemetery, which is next to St Denis Church, 604 Beekman Rd, Hopewell Junction, NY
He's in the very front section bordering Beekman Road, maybe 4 or 5 rows up from the road. I kept track of the rows by the name on the first stone on the far LEFT (eastern side) of the row if you were standing on Beekman road (ie, the farthest away from the church). According to my notes, which may or may not be correct, one of the first stones on LEFT (or eastern) end of the row was FERLAND. If you can find FERLAND, that should be the correct row. I can also tell you that the face of the stone faces the road. I know this because I was there in the morning, and there were a lot of shadows on the faces (as you can probably tell from the picture I posted). If you visit the grave and get a better picture, post it, let me know, and I'll delete mine
Calverton pics People are contacting you directly? I see there's plenty of requests, but Calverton has more than 90 volunteer photographers. The reason so many requests are unclaimed is because the brass plaques can't be seen with the snow cover.
I don't go often and when I do, it's usually a private visit to leave flowers for family members there. I try to get a few pics on those times.
