I am researching my Irish and Scottish ancestors who settled in Bayonne and other areas of northeast New Jersey and in Staten Island in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Most of my ancestors and relations are buried in these areas. I would greatly appreciate any and all help by photo volunteers in these areas.
I live in central Maine and can offer photos of graves in greater Penobscot, Waldo, and Hancock Counties.
George Connelly - Holy Name Jersey City Brian, Sorry you can't see the headstone but it is L - 39B -3-4. The name on the stone is Costello. If this is wrong please let me know and I will remove the picture. Cecelia joiseygirl
Hugh Peter Sweeney at Holy Sep The memorial states the grave is at St Matthias's Path lot 46, grave 41. There are no lots in the Sts Paths large enough to hold 41 graves. There is definitely a lot 46 since there are 60 lots in each path, so I will be able to see what, if anything is there. Id just like you to double check the lot location.
RE: John Sweeney Holy Sep still does ban photography, but you should call them and get the locations of your other requests anyway. I go there regularly and if I knew where they were, I could get the photos for you. This one was sheer luck
Albert and Charles Melando I added a photo of their grave in Staten Island. According to the woman I spoke with at the cemetery, Albert and Charles were not listed on the monument. She said that the names of babies were often omitted. The plot was purchased by Michael Carroll on 11/24/1890. Interred in these graves are members of the Carroll and Shea families. I am on Ancestry.com, so I did some digging and found that their parents names were Christopher Melando and Mary Ann (Carroll) Melando. They had 11 children. Several of them died before Albert and Charles. I hope this helps. Let me know if I can help with anything else. Have a nice day.
RE: Theresa Karcz grave My pleasure. Yours is actually the very first photo I have uploaded. I was inspired by a good friend of mine who is really into genealogy and has uploaded 800 photos so far. I brought my mom to the Ridgefield Cemetery (also known as the English Neighborhood Reformed Church Cemetery) to visit my grandparents' grave last weekend and was inspired to find some others for people on here.
