forest Lawn request
If you contact their office (through email) and request their location I would take a photo for you. I have been in their office a few times and I think they are tired of seeing me. They would be more willing to do a lookup if the request came from a family member.
Once you have the location just enter it into the memorial page and it will show on the photo request.
Thank you,

RE: Frank Pravitz 1889-1918
Hi Shirley, Thanks for the info on him. In his memorial bio, I put the census details and that he might be their grandson. They may have adopted him. Thanks again, Mary

RE: esther barber
I became an officer in 1985 in Passaic County so timing was a bit off. Anyway, I am still searching Old Newton Cemetery beyond the visible headstones. I found an area where broken stone pieces were tossed and will attempt to "puzzle" them back together and see if I can come up with anything legible. The problem there is that the cemetery was abandoned and vandalized long prior to 1991 when it was cleaned up and documented by the Sussex County Historical Society. The local county inmates groom it now and I have been digging up old buried stones all summer that had been knocked over and lost. I will upload anything that I find in the future.

RE: Andrew E. Balliet
All of your info is correct except Meta's maiden name is mispelled. It is Nothstein, not NoRthstein.
It seems easier to correct it now before I connect which I am happy to do.
thank you for your time

RE: Rachel Staskus #14617303
I have no information on them - when I lived in FL, I walked the cemetery and added the memorials. Since you have a slight connection, I don't mind transferring. Would you like the memorial?

Are you related by any chance?

RE: Morris Barber
You're welcome. Let me know if you need anything else. I will be done photographing every visible headstone in the next few weeks. Karen had entered hundreds of memorials back in 2006 and I have found many errors. I contacted her on some and she edited them accordingly but for me, it is too much work to contact her every time. There are also very extensive public records on all recorded burials on the Sussex County Historical Society website. Try... and you can research by full/parts of names, etc.

RE: Henry and Rachel (Sutton) Goarcke
Hi Shirley,
Thank you for the marriage date for Henry and Rachel Lusk! I really appreciate it!
I have a Lusk Family Tree on that I have started. My main reason for researching the Lusk/Goarcke family is because in 1930 their granddaughter Luella Lusk, 1907-1981 lived in Providence, RI with my distant relatives, John and Della Dillon. The census lists her as their cousin. So I'm trying to figure out how they were related with no success so far!
Any chance that you know the answer?
