Bio and Links
Bio Photo I really enjoy this website. I wish more people would find it, especially those in Europe who are searching for records of those who crossed the ocean in hopes of a better life, and also to help those of us, on this side of the pond, who would love to see pictures of the gravestones of our ancestors whom we can't go visit.

Thank you to everyone who has helped make this a great meeting ground for exchange.

If I have created a memorial for someone who is a member of your family, and you would like to have its' management transfered to you, just let me know.


"Dear Ancestor,

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out,
On polished, marbled stone.

It reaches out to all who care...
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist,
You died and I was born.

Yet each of us are cells of you,
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.

Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago,
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.

I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come to visit you."

(This poem was written in 1906 by Walter Butler Palmer).

RE: Phillippina Moczygemba
Sorry to report that Phillippina wasn't in the records. I didn't look under Wentz but I don't think she would have been under that. I tried a few different spellings too. The only Moczygembas were ones titled A. Moczygemba which is probably Antoni.

RE: Phillippina Moczygemba
Darn, I didn't think she was but I was hoping! Oh well, I am headed to an office tomorrow so I will type in her name and see if anything comes up. I really am surprised that the Catholic church would have a record issue like that but who knows.

RE: Phillippina Moczygemba
I saw a death record that also said burial place Lemont, IL, so I feel like it is that one, especially since everyone else is there, but it is always a possibility

RE: Phillippina Moczygemba
Its' very strange, im not sure why they wouldnt have a record for her especially since I think that family either founded or were active members of the church, again I will check but I wonder if there was some confusion with the other saints cyril and methodius in joliet.

Phillippina Moczygemba
Hello, I am going to go to a Catholic cemetery office this week to look up her name again, but I imagine it is still the case that they have no record of her. How would you like me to proceed with the photo request? I know her husband is buried in the cemetery, so she is likely near him. There is a photo of his location. I wonder what happens when the catholic cemeteries have no record but we have proof otherwise, maybe they add in the info? I would imagine the contact person or next of kin is gone by now

Hello and thanks for your service. A mistake has been made on William's Find A Grave page. His birth and death date years are 1864. Looking at the photo that is presently on Find A Grave it does look like 1861. I have a better picture of it and would be happy to send it to you. My email address is . Scott Welch
