Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a Catholic Priest of the Diocese of Buffalo, New York. Pastor of St. Joseph Parish, Fredonia, New York from 1999 to 2016.

I am documenting the places of burial of our Buffalo diocesan priests.

Most of the research for the obituaries of the priests comes from the Catholic papers of Buffalo: the Catholic Union and Times, the Echo, the Union and Echo, and their successor papers. Some information comes from local news articles, parish directories and personal memories. I also thank family members and friends who have sent me additional information and/or have transferred memorials to me. You can send me biographical information with the edit tab. If you have some personal memory of a particular priest, leave a flower with that information.

If the priest has "No Cemetery" and you know of the place of burial, I would appreciate the information. You can also send that information via the edit tab of the Priest. A special thanks to those who have used the edit tab to update memorials.

Father
I noticed that Father Bauer's name was not on the list of Buffalo priests you have listed.
Thanks again for your great work on this site.

RE: Fell family
Reading Left to right in your picture I see

Nora B., then Lawrence J. / 1863 - 1962 and, Father

These Fell's lived on Niagara Ave
----

Fathers' family lived on Cleveland ave.

I'm pretty sure each branch of the Fell family has their own monument and each one is exactly like your picture. Also, both of these families have a Lawrence. Easy to end up with a photo of the wrong family.

Leave your picture up and if it's the other family you can move it later. asap I'll get photos for you.

Hi Father Zadora
I completed every memorial and enjoyed reading all of the information. One question I have is that Rev. Paul WALDRON, there was nothing for him. I also went back through every memorial and fixed the transcriptions and put them where they belonged as I had them in the bio to begin with. Thanks for all of the information I appreciate it and think this was a wonderful idea.

Kind Regards,

Mark Peebles

Yaegers
I've put up pics for Fathers Wilbur and Jerome Yaeger in Section U at Mt. Calvary.
FYI, no parents in the area, but next to them was a Janet Yaeger, O.S.F.

Regards

thank you
I want to thank you for this wonderful service and all of your hard work on it. I went looking on line for a priest I knew long ago in Buffalo, and found him here, Father Christian Puehn. I am sure others will find special priests from their lives as well, from the Diocese of Buffalo. This is an amazing, positive thing on the web and I hope others around the country start doing it as well.

Thank you
Fr. Zadora,

Thank you so much for documenting the various men who served the Church here in Western New York. It is interesting to read their stories and see their faces as I visit the various churches and cemeteries in the region.

God Bless,
Tim Ecker

RE: Rev. Francis Bauer
I grew up in Sardinia and was baptized at St Jude's Church which was part of the Missionary Apostolate. Father Bauer was stationed there after his ordination which was the practice then for newly ordained priests. He was a great guy and we communicated for awhile after he moved to Phoenix. He also officiated at my Brother's wedding and I was an altar boy during the time he was there.
