Jessica, My name is Twyla Hogan O'Keefe and would like to use these pictures of John's headstone on my family tree. My pictures did not have the quality of the ones you took. Thank you in advance.
|Nancy Mattox||John Cabri Photo|
Was wondering if I could use the photo you took of John's headstone in my family tree.
Thank you for taking time to do volunteer photo's for Find A Grave.
|Kristen||RE: Mary Kunigunda Wunder Lusch|
Could I have your email to send the pics of Mary & George I was given? I didn't see one listed in your profile. I didn't get to meet Larry, but I believe I know who you mean. My line is through Frank. May I ask which brother your line stems from? I'm hoping we can figure out who this couple is. I feel with their clothes, they are from a generation before Mary & George. These pics are from a cousin, but I don't know where he acquired them.

Yes, we must be! Awesome! I do have them on a disc that was given to me. Searching for Franz Xaver Lusch, I found a link that Tony Kaney wrote up, and he used the same pics you have for George and Mary...

Mary is my great-great grandmother, and I was excited to see her photo! But a relative has a photo of her (and one of George) stating this couple as Mary Wonder and George Lusch, Sr., and they do not look like either one of them compared to your photos. I would love to know for sure. I am hoping we can figure out who this other couple is.

Would it be possible to use the photo of James Miller's grave on his memorial page? He graduated from Proviso Township High School (now Proviso East)in Maywood.

I happened to find his obit, while looking for my cousin. Thanks to you, I now know that they kept Mr. Davis in Chicago. We do have Davis in our tree,near our roots! I "barber", from just east of Muncie! Maybe related.
