Bio and Links
My name is Melissa and I joined this websight to try to find additional information on my family history and add the information that I have to try to help other people with the information that I have. Also, if you do try to contact me directly through email can you please write "findagrave" in the subject line. Thank you. If not I will most likely think it is spam and delete it.
I also have began to transcribe cemeteries with as much information that I can find on who is buried there.

I am the grandson of John G. Windeknecht. I would like to maintain this memorial along with his wife Ethel. Henry E. is his brother and Irma is Henry's wife. I would like to maintain these also.

Sarah Schmukler
Hi Melissa,

I was wondering if you had another photo of the headstone for Sarah Schmukler that included the entire Hebrew inscription. This information would tell me who her father is. She may be related to my family and this would be helpful to know. The following is from the page on this site:

Birth: 1860
Death: 1925

Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery
Cuyahoga County
Ohio, USA
Plot: Section 6

Many thanks,

Lisa Hoffman

Hi. I sent a correction today for this memorial which changes place of birth from Pittsburgh to Altavilla Milicia Sicily. I found his birth record, which is #40 1909 in Altavilla Milicia, along with the marriage of his parents Biagio ABBATE and Marianna Scafidi, and the birth records of 3 of his 9 siblings, also from AV. Three siblings were born in Chicago, and the last 3 were born in Pittsburgh. It appears that his parents and the siblings that died young were buried with the ABBATE name, the rest of the children changed their name to ABBOTT. I dont know if you are related to this family..I am not, at least not closely. What I am doing is adding information to the memorials for those who came to the US from Altavilla Milicia Sicily, where my great grandparents are from. thanks!

I see that you are the one who is keeping track of these persons on findagrave. They are my grandparents. Could you give me ownership of this listing? I can add updates and link there parents.

Thank you - Riverside Cemetery
Hi Melissa - Thank you for fulfilling the photo request at Riverside Cemetery of memorial 144778822. Wonderful of you to help out. Either photo shows the headstone just fine by itself, so if you wanted to leave only one that would be OK. Wasn't sure if you preferred to post both. Take care.

Hi Melissa
I saw your post and I am also researching the Lebowitz family. Nathan was a first cousin of our grandfather. Would love to hear from you.
