Bio and Links
Bio Photo Semi-retired model railroader who has just discovered the addiction of genealogy. I live in South Saint Louis County Missouri, but I am close to Jefferson County Missouri and right across the Mississippi River from Monroe and Saint Clair Counties in Illinois.
I most enjoy trying to link families together, finding out who are the parents, aunts and uncles, and grandparents of various people I have discovered here. When possible I try to find obituaries at the library and copy them into the bio.
If I can help you, please contact me.

RE: Pat Whalen
Hello Michael, Its great to hear from you. Hope you and your family had a good Christmas and New Year.

I'm hoping to find some photos of the Whalen Family and the pool hall-saloon that was in Hoxie. I have an old postcard of the Hoxie Business that were on Texas Street ( main street in Hoxie ) from the early 1900's, but the quality of the photo is not good. I have seen Pat Whalen Bottles, but I don't have one. They are very rare and expense to buy.

Email me and I will send some scans of bottle and the old postcard.

Thank you for adding a picture of my daughters grave site. I have one but just never put it on but I do appreciate you doing it. I happen to come on here and look for my dads and seen you had posted the picture.

Pat Whalen
Hello Michael, I notice that Pat Whalen was your GGF. I'm in the process of doing a history of Hoxie, Arkansas and trying to find some information on him. He had a pool hall-saloon and a bottling company in Hoxie.

Wondering whether you're related to this family, since you posted the memorial. He was the son of Jacob and Caroline.

I only ask because his godparents were Sebastian and Catherine Maurer, my 3rd-great-grandparents and I was trying to figure out what the connection was.

They came from Montbronn, in the Lorraine area of France. Since LaCroix is French, wondered whether any of them were connected in the Old Country, or whether they just became good friends once here.

Don't know if there are any other crossovers. I'll have to look at dates and christenings for the other kids you've got.

Marotta / Pascucci
I have been searching for my Grandfathers second wife Josephine Marotta / Pascucci after my Grandfather died she moved from Brooklyn N.Y.
Her first husband Anthony and her second husband are entered at St. Johns Cemetery Middle Village Queens N.Y. sec/043 range U-103/104.
I have a photo of the stone if you would like it?
I just had it fixed.

Mary A Tayon
Found the missing link. She is the sister to my husbands great grandmother. Jennie, Julia Antoinete and Mary Amand Mareschal were sisters and they have a brother Francis (Frank). Still looking for him. Found the probate records of Louis M. Mareschal. Of course the e should have a ' over it to be correct. Did you send me a photo of a headstone for Louis Marishal? Someone did and now I can't find it. Over the years Mareschal was changed over to Marshal. Hope this helps you in your searches.

RE: Mary & John Tayon
Thanks for the info. You are just down the road from Oakdale and Mt. Olive. It seems that is where most of the family is buried. They were all residents of Carondolete. Thanks again, will try to get over there when it gets warmer than 30 degrees.
