|Cullen Farrell||RE: Sister Laverty|
Are you related to Sister Laverty? She was my Great Aunt, sister to my Grandma Rita Laverty Farrell.
To find obituaries, all you need is the death date, then simply access Google's Post Gazette or Pgh PRess newspaper sites. I will enclose the link for you.
Those links allow you to view any newspaper ever printed from those two papers. It takes a while to zoom in and out over the Obit pages, but given time and dedication, one can find tons of family member obits if one is willing to spend the time searching.
|Karen Schall||RE: Wow! Thanks!|
Edward's pictures are now posted. I was so happy to have found this headstone for you. On this day it was very cold and windy. I drove slowly through the cemetery hoping for a miracle: to find it without having to get out of my warm car! I stopped driving, closed my eyes, and said "wouldn't it be great if I could just open my eyes and see it?" I opened my eyes, looked to my right, and there it was! Right beside me! And such a beautiful stone. Anyway, I'm glad you wrote to me because I wanted you to know about my little cemetery adventure with Bridget and Edward! :-)

Just read your latest message to my husband (check out my new person sign-on to Find-A-Grave) and I have little doubt that babies were left for the caretakers to bury. In the late 1890s infants died so frequently from disease that I'm sure their families were overwhelmed with the cost of burial. Fortunately, the TRAUTMANs and NICKELs (primary relatives in this cemetery) had enough $$ for burial, I guess. They even had gravestones, which was a luxury for many.
|Patrick Patterson||RE: St. Mary's Cemetery, Mt. Troy Road, Pgh|
Got your latest message and must clarify that I am Gail M. Schotoff-Patterson, wife of Patrick Patterson, native of Pittsburgh, and current resident of the Outer Banks, NC.
I am the person who wrote the initial message and it's my TRAUTMAN, SCHOTOFF, KASTLE, NICKEL, mostly German relatives (among others) and lots of family friends who are buried in St. Mary's Cemetery on Mt. Troy Rd. Cemetery is pretty easy to find (near McKnight Road) but winter is definitely not the time to visit. My husband & I may visit Pgh in the spring--the cemetery and Pirate baseball stadium, that is.
I know people who were initially buried there had to be relatively poor (I think, like my relatives, most were affiliated with St. Mary's RC Church on the North Side of Allegheny City/Pgh). But I had never heard that story about the babies!
If you want more information abut the cemetery, St. Mary's Church, whatever, just let me know.....Gail

Hi! Thanks so much for adding the postcard image of subj cemetery to Find-A-Grave. Most of my maternal and many of my paternal ancestors, my parents, and friends of the family are buried in this cemetery. As a child, our family often visited their graves, so we became very familiar with the residents & caretakers (who are also relatives!). I promise to add more images to Find-A-Grave/St. Mary's/other cemeteries myself! Thanks again.
|Anne Cady||RE: Betty B Haenel picture|
As I just emailed you (fyi - you really just need to leave a message....that notifies me by email already of your message, so there is no reason to repeat it)....the picture I have is not appropriate as it was taken while Betty was still alive. Even more importanlty, as of very recently, she was still alive though she had moved downstate a bit, to Montgomery, NY. That is why I didn't have a memorial for her.
If that wasn't the case, I would have no problem posting the photo myself, but as I mentioned last time you contacted me about the Haenels, it violates find-a-grave rules for you to post pictures you didn't take, even if I gave you permission. I would have to send find-a-grave admins a note stating that I had given you permission and that is too much hassle.
Are the GENS' your family? If so let me know which ones and I will be more than happy to transfer them to you. It would be easier to add everything you would like to so just let me know I am more than happy to transfer.
Happy New Year!
I've transferred memorials as per your requests. Let me know if you would like to manage the Skidmore memorials and others you have sponsored. Nathan
You might want to try the ABMC website as they will deliver flowers and take pictures of your relative's grave for you.

No problem. I deleted her from my listing.
