I am an active genealogist (Polish/German & Irish) from Buffalo (Cheektowaga) New York. Member of WNYGS,PGSNYS & BIGS. Recently completed the restoration of our first settlers graveyard, the Bennet Family cemetery. Currently, I am restoring and transcribing the Polish National Catholic Church-Holy Mother of the Rosary Cathedral's cemetery on Dale Road, as all the early death records burned. In addition, I am recording the deaths that were buried in the abandoned community town (Union Road)cemetery in Cheektowaga, NY.
Sarah Thomas in Graceland I have a photo of the lot you specified for Sarah. Unfortunately, there are six small headstones that are all unreadable. There is room for at least six more graves without markers. The cemetery can help determine if oe of the stones is for Sarah. I will past a photo. Regards, Bob
RE: Robert Hitzel photo You're welcome...Interesting bio...I have to check out that cemetery as I have never noticed it and probably have driven by hundreds of times...When I see requests for photos at Holy Rosary I text the"caretaker"for plot info...that's not you, is it? Seeing you're knowledgeable about Cheektowaga history do you happen to know who Dick Rd. is named after?...Thanks, Carol
RE: GLEASON/McLAUGHLIN Hi, that was back in April that I was asking for people to get section numbers. I live quite a ways from there and don't know when or if I will be going back. I sent the correction of where the plot is for her to update so if I can't get it, someone else may be able to.
Stanley Potopinski Maureen, You left a request on Find a Grave to have a picture of Stanley Potopinski's grave stone photographed at Holy Cross Cemetery. I could not find the Grave marker. I called the office at Holy Cross and they told me that he did not have a marker but his wife Cecilia does. I was unable to locate her marker. The marker is probably buried if it is a flat stone. I asked the cemetery to please check the marker for Cicilia and if it is covered over the cemetery will have the stone raised.
Stanley Potopinski Maureen, I went to photograph the grave of Stanley Potopinski. If there is a marker for Stanley it is totally covered over. Please call Holy Cross Cemetery in Lackawanna, NY and ask them to raise the grave marker. Only a relative can make this request. When the marker has been raised, please let me know and I will be happy to go back and photograph it for you.
Joseph Dziarnowski. I will be more than happy to transfer the Joseph Dziarnowski page when I figure out how to do that. This is my first request. Let me know if I did it right. If not I'll keep trying.
