I am now an old woman who proudly served America in the Air Force during the Korean and Viet Nam eras. God bless all our troops in the mid-east. I hope they all come home safe, sound and whole as soon as possible. God bless America.
Aretha's hat is everywhere and this kitty looks so great wearing it, too.
RE: Anna Good morning from NYC! I was referring to the Find-A-Grave page I believed you maintain for the listing of Annie Moore (1874-1924), recorded as the first immigrant processed through Ellis Island, on January 1, 1892.
Her real first name was Anne; she was from Ireland and she married a man called Joseph Schayer, a bakery clerk and lived the rest of her days in the Lower East Side in Manhattan, NYC.
I thought you were listed as sponsoring her page - perhaps in going through pages, I got my information mixed up.
RE: Noah William Drake Grainne, Thanks so much for the reply that helps a lot to understand the relationships. I recently found a lovely picture of Frederick and his lovely wife Mary Ellen tending to their chickens, I have posted it on Ancestry. Thanks to your pictures of her I was able to identify the photograph. If you would like a copy, please let me know.
I will look for the ship that they came over on, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out.
I did know of Mrs. Connoly passing, I am in touch with her son Carl. I am very sad to hear the news of Agnes Marie passing though.
My love and best wishes for a very happy new year.
Noah William Drake Grainne, I wonder how Noah came to be thought of as Irish? The Drake line is German as we well know and if his father removed the kids to raise them then I wonder if the Iraih streak was a nod to his Mother?
Helen Fairchild Since you sponsored the page for Helen Fairchild at the Somme American Cemetery in France, I thought you would be interested to know that I just discovered she also has a marker in the Watsontown, Pennsylvania, Cemetery. (See Find A Grave #125985607). I am working on trying to find out where her parents are buried so we can link them.
