|A single mom and empty nester, always interested in my past. Hope someone will enter the names of my lost relatives for me as I hopefully am helping someone find their lost ones. I have set up a virtual cemetery for the victims of the General Slocum Disaster in New York City on June 15, 1904, please e-mail me with any corrections, additions, or changes. I am using three different sources for my information and there are many differences. First time Grandmother to Noah Henry Johnson born 7-27-09!!!|
I do not have Internet access at home so please be patient with me. I must go to the library to make corrections or transfers. If you want a transfer, please provide your member number in the request. I try to go at least once a month. Thanks. If I do not make the changes requested it is because I did not understand your request or I had mutiple memorials with the same name and was unable to identify who you were referring to. A no-reply request leaves me no options but to wait for a second request hopefully with more info. Sorry. Including memorial numbers is helpful.

|Skip Durmon||Beverly Blake McGuire|
sometime back you transferred Beverly Blake McGuire memorial to me. Someone named Peggy Goodwin has added a photo to this memorial which does not go to this memorial. In fact the picture is my picture and there is a Beverly Blake McGuire in it but wrong one. I tried removing the photo but it will not let me saying you created the memorial therefore I can not remove it? Any suggestions?

Hi! I added a memorial page for Christina Geissman/Gessman (Find A Grave Memorial# 149450867.) I didn't see her among your memorials. As per newspaper reports, she survived the initial Slocum disaster but died of complications of an injury received from the fire fighter who rescued her.
Also added a memorial for Lena Geissmann (Find A Grave Memorial# 149451025), aged 16, who died 15 June 1904 in the Bronx. Came across her while looking for Christina in the NYC Municipal Deaths database. Need to do more research to see if she is also a victim, although there is a "Miss Geissmann" listed among the missing in The Globe newspaper.

Please ignore my inaccurate reference to the "Woodbury" lot. Ms. Hettinger is with her Rosenstein relatives, only 2 of whom have memorial stones. If there had been a stone for her, there would have been a close up of the stone AND a transcription. As there was no stone, the only possible photo of her gravesite is a shot of the lot.
|Bob Collins||RE: Elizabeth|
Please click on the photos to enlarge them and reveal a caption which states, among many other things, that there is no stone for Ms Hettinger in the Woodbury lot.
|Bob Collins||RE: Findagrave #125348144|
It is the grave of Louise Fischer and Adolph Timme. Click on the photos to enlarge them and reveal an explanatory caption. Information from cemetery staff. The relationship of the two is unclear--but they are buried beneath the stone that bears only Timme's name.
Re: your request for a photo .
I visited the Field Store Cemetery today and found the grave, but there is only a temporary marker and no headstone.

|Bronx Cop||General Slocum Disaster|
Judi: I saw your list of General Slocum victims. I found a grave of interest in Lutheran Cemetery, Middle Village, NY. It is right across from the Slocum monument. Have you ever come across an entry for the deaths of Katie Goetz (16 Aug 1871-15 Jun 1904) (my memorial # is 137616372)
or her children: Lizzie, Susie, Annie and William? Look under my entries for these names. Do you think this is a coincindence, or a family lost in history? - Kevin

Hi Judi, You made a memorial for above Find A Grave Memorial# 19518957. Here is the obituary in case you want to complete the memorial. Thanks for all the work you do on Find A Grave:

|Zoe Tom||Molitor duplicates|
I don't know how mine got the pictures. Bob Collins usually doesn't put pictures on duplicates. I hate to remove my entries and lose his pictures.
Please write me directly about this problem.
Maybe I could transfer mine to you, and that way we could keep the pictures ??
