Bio and Links
Bio Photo I volunteer at Oakwood Cemetery in Niagara Falls. I have some limited access to St. Mary's/Sacred Hearts Cemetery, which are adjacent to Oakwood, although most of their records have been destroyed and the cemetery is in ill repair.

St. Joseph's, Holy Trinity and Gate of Heaven (Lewiston) are not far away and within my travel range for photo requests. I will only take photo requests that already have grave section/area info because these are HUGE cemeteries. Call the cemetery office, tell them you are from far away and ask they provide you with the info so you can send someone else to get the photo. Most places will do one or two requests for FREE. After more than a couple, however, be prepared to pay some sort of fee.

Riverdale and Accacia Park will NOT process requests for Find A Grave photographers and are particularly unfriendly about it. Call them and get the grave location and put it in your photo request. These cemeteries want to charge photographers if they go in and ask for help. For one or two requests, they MIGHT do it over the phone for YOU. Remember: your family BOUGHT plots there. They work for YOU.

Visit my Virtual Cemetery "Oakwood's River Folks" for folks who have died stunting at The Falls or in The Niagara River and then stop by and say hi to my recently departed best friend, Eilean "Ellie" Lyonhil Donan in the Virtual Cemetery, "Beloved Friends".

Transfer Request
Please transfer Find A Grave Memorial# 113977175 for Mary Laubocker and Find A Grave Memorial# 113977171 for Jacob Laubocker to me. They are my maternal grandparents. I wish to link them to their children and edit and post additional information for them. Thank you in advance and I appreciate the tombstone photos. JIM

RE: Frank & Benjamin Skinner Graves
Yes, please. If I find other relatives you entered, I'll be happy to send you bio's for them. Would that be OK?

Frank & Benjamin Skinner Graves
I was looking up info on my Great Grandfather, Frank Eugene Skinner, who is laid to rest at Oakwood Cemetery. In the event you are interested, I have info on him, his son and who made his headstone.

Frank Eugene Skinner was born on May 10, 1880 and died on Dec 2, 1918 (Spanish Flu). Frank's son, Benjamin Franklin Skinner was born on Jan 20, 1915 and died Dec 10, 1918 (Spanish Flu). Benjamin died 8 days after Dad. They are buried in the same grave.

You are correct. The headstone is handmade, by Franks brother-in-law, Louis Fontana. They were very close. Uncle Louis had a large construction business in Niagara Falls.

RE: Elizabeth E. Fisher (Oakwood/NF)
I believe the Elizabeth E. Fisher you added on here is correct. Her obit said she died on Dec. 24, 1957. Her husband, Charles died in June 1966. If he is there, can you please let me know the exact day he died and Elizabeth's date of birth (if available)? Thx a lot.

Hi, Can you please do me a favor and find out where Mrs. Fisher is located in Oakwood and see if her husband, Charles J. Fisher is also at Oakwood? TYVM.

RE: Greco Gate of Heaven help
That is kind of you! Don't know if we will ever be that far north again, but we did love the area--and will write then to take you up on it! I clicked on your virtual cemetery to see the lady who lived after the Falls--and the 8 year old and her 22 year old rescuer who didn't.

Take a look at #107735814--this man started in Vermont, but his grave was lost until we saw a small white patch in a remote Nebraska cemetery. The National Archives are pretty cool too!
