RE:Mary Molitor Gradall
Thank you for the photo. The information that Mary was interned at came from unknown family source. I do know that Mr. Gradall was her 2nd spouse and he also had been married previously also. They were divorced at the time of her death. I put her grave in Adelbert as you suggested since you have a photo to document. I am not related but have worked on this family tree for a friend years ago.
I will check into Mr. Gradall perhaps that will give me some clues. DR

I am trying to fulfill a photo request for their markers. Are you sure that they are at Union? I checked the records and could not find them. I am looking at their death notices from the Journal, and they don't list a cemetery.

Ortencia Pluta
Hi Frank,

We are coming to you for your expertise. The grave looks like it could have been a tomb of some sort. Considering that Ortencia was only a year old at the time of her death and the elongated marker, it looks like it could be the lid to a burial box of some kind. Enlighten us, please.

Hi Frank,
The photo for Ortencia was taken by Mark. He also dug through about 6" inches of dirt of a headstone that was totally hidden by grass and mud. We saw a depression in the space requested and started to dig. After cutting, digging and cleaning the results were phenomenal. Don't know if the stone was originally upright or not. This is what makes Find A Grave so interesting.

Teresa Rossellini Gustapagalia, add children
Hello Frank,

Teresa Rossellini Gustapagalia was my great grandmother, and she and Paul Gustapagalia married and had three children:. Charles Gust, Harry Gust, and Louise M. Gust Karl. They left Italy, my grandmother was just a tottler, and immigrated through Ellis Island, and settled in Milwaukee.

My Uncle Charlie was my grandmother's brother. He told us that he was the one who changed their name and shortened it from Gustapagalia to Gust...

Please add/tie the two brothers, Charles and Harry to the record, and to Paul Gustapagalia's record as well.

Thank you,
Michele Toby
Daughter of Karen Karl Toby (daughter of Louise M. Gust Karl)

RE: Labinski, Lipski, Pruski
Your welcome. Looks like we have a couple more weeks of fly and grass flea bites, especially right after they cut the grass which seems to be quite frequently.
