Kreischer people
This is to let you know that I have added some more Kreischer people to Green-Wood Cemetery, Brooklyn.
I think you are lots younger than I am. Would you like to manage them?

In exploring my family I have found that my great-great-grandfather was the Brother of Wilhelmina. My grand parents are Frank H. Ruppert and Mary E Ruppert. We are in Maryland, I would be glad to take photos of there grave markers and send them to you if you are interested.

My great grandfather was co owner of the Yankees with your great grandfather
Hi K. Jacob Ruppert, My great grandfather, Tillinghast L'Hommedieu Huston, was a co-owner of the Yankees with your grandfather. Thanks for writing his biography and posting it here. I sent it to my mother Alexandra Huston Fuller. Tillinghast was her grandfather. Her father was Arthur Huston, and she grew up on the dairy on Butler Island, and also lived in Sea Island, Ga, where she met my father Charlton Thomas Fuller.

You added a picture of his gravesite in Saint John the Baptist Catholic Cemetery. There is obviously a second grave a the same site but I am unable to read the information. He is a relative of mine on my fathers side of the family. I also notice that there is no mention of a wife in his obit on the site, wondering who she is or was also. Thanks for your help.

Than you again!
I am blown away at the photos you have added for me. Thank you so much for going to all that trouble. I am working hard on getting as many of the SANDEL family connected and trying to gather all the information I can on them and your photos are such a gift.

Thank you,

Ruppert Genealogy
Hi there. My son was born into the Ruppert family 11 years ago and it has been told to him that his great great uncle was Jacob Ruppert, owner of the Yankees. I am not sure of this accuracy, but I was wondering if you have a database that I could browse through to give some him some history of where he comes from. Thanks so much and I appreciate your time.

Dear Mr. K. Jacob Ruppert,

I was quite moved by your touching tribute and memorial for Victor Andre LeBlanc. Very nice indeed.

I do believe you may have a slight error in the biography. You mention he is a rest now with his paternal ancestors, and list Victor Andre LeBlanc, but I believe that ancestor is actually Victor Alfred LeBlanc. You may want to check.

Again, thanks so much.

A. K. LeBlanc Richard
