Ethel Barker at Forest Home Cemetery Hi! I need the burial Section and Lot Numbers in order to take a photograph for you. This cemetery's staff does not help photo volunteers, and the burial location is not available anywhere else.
RE: Louise Buschwah Thank you for the photo request. Good teamwork. Her mother and father are there too, if you would like to link them. I entered them using some of your info in Louise's memorial. Thanks, Bob
Frank Florian @ Bohemian Natl Cem. Hello. Frank Florian was the brother of my great-grandfather. The photo you have posted is his gravestone (just names, no dates at all). I have the right grave, because the plot is filled with other relatives of mine. I don't know the source of your date of birth for him (1862), but that is not correct. He was born in 1858 in Bohemia; I have the record of his birth in Suchdol nad Luznici near Trebon, Bohemia. It is correct that his father was Matej/"Mike" and his mother Rose. I also have the ship manifest listing him and his father and brother Vitek arriving on the Strassberg at Baltimore on 19 April 1879, age 21. But the children listed are wrong. Barbora was his first wife (m. Sep 27, 1884); she died young leaving him with two small children: Clara and Joseph. Frank soon married Josephine K (spelling uncertain) Jun 3,1893, and they had two children: Charles and Marshall. I don't think they had any more. My grandmother knew Clara very well; Charles was a musician; Marshall drowned at age 21. Frank fibbed about his age frequently, e.g. when he married.(Both wives were much younger than he.) Marriage#2 lasted 42 yr. until he died on 27 Oct. 1935. Josephine buried him next to his first wife. When she died in 1946 she was cremated and her ashes were placed in an urn at BNC. -- Arlene Kanno firstname.lastname@example.org
