Bio and Links
Bio Photo I've been actively researching my family tree since 1999. The primary branches are PODBOY/PODBOJ, ROK, PECARO/PECORARO, BORRIS, and SCHULTZ/SCHUBELTOWSKI. I love locating family members and reconnecting with the past.

Amazing similarities exist between humans of different races, colors and beliefs. The similarities that join us far outweigh the differences that separate us. There is unity within our diversity.

My objectives on Findagrave are to link family members, add obits or biographies, provide grave or crypt locations and -- with the assistance of countless volunteers (my angels!) -- include photos of final resting places. I strive for quality, not quantity.

I also strive to visit each memorial I create (plus others that relate to them in some way) on birth and death dates to commemorate the event. It is my honor and privilege to do so.

If you find any errors or have additional information (dates or places, etc.), please let me know. And if you have photos of any of the people remembered on these pages, feel free to upload them.

RE: Bio for Lenore Retzer Joseph
Thank you for the note and for correcting the Hickory reference. I had pulled that from an article at Wheeling University.

She was Parker Hamilton Clark's second wife (I have not yet identified his first, let alone located the grave of her). Parker was my second cousin (first cousin to my father).

I'm new to Find-A-Grave and am still learning the ropes.

Create memorials for them and I will post their crypt photo.

I was searching in Section 6C at St. Michael the Archangel Cemetery today and walked past the grave of Joshua Paul Vesper (Find A Grave Memorial# 144999901). I noticed there is now a marker on his grave, so I photographed it and posted it to his memorial.

Best wishes,
Jim Bellert

I had better luck finding Jacqueline Hoppe's marker today. It was covered in thick mewn grass. Her marker is the same one as her mother's. I've posted an updated photo of her mother's stone to her mother's memorial.

I also found three other markers for Hoppe's. I've created memorials for them as there were none before. If you want me to transfer these to you, let me know. They are for Richard R. Hoppe, #147090552, Henry Hoppe, 147090637, and his wife, Jennie, 147090635. Richard was also in Section 6C though not nearby Jacqueline. And Henry and Jennie were in Section 6B, the opposite end of Section 6 from Jacqueline.

Very close to the Stubbs/Hoppe was a grave for Allan F. Mastroiani. I also created a memorial for him, #147091226.

Best wishes,
Jim Bellert

Gary Hitchen - St. Joseph's Cemetery
In your request for photos for the Capras at St. Joseph's, you had asked to look for certain surnames adjacent to them. I wanted to let you know that next to the Capras was a Gary R. Hitchen. I created a memorial for him and uploaded the photo.

st. adalbert cemetery
Hi, you're interested in few different last names at St. Adalbert cemetery. I got pictures of the lists for each last name, so you can look through them and see if anyone else from family if buried there. Easiest would be to email pictures, let me know where I should email them. Best JMac
