Bio and Links
I live in Texas City Galveston County. We have pictures of every cemetery in Galveston County with the exception of Mount Olivet which is being done by another club. So I have the pictures already. These pics belong to the public use as you wish but this is not for commercial use on paid websites. Will be happy to transfer any memorials to family members.

Angelo Eugene Montalbano
Hi Floyd, I found an obituary for Angelo and thought it would be nice if you could possibly add a bio for him in.

Angelo Eugene Montalbano
Galveston – Angelo Montalbano, 81, of Galveston, passed away at his home surrounded by his family on July 25, 2011. He was born in Galveston on January 3, 1930. Angelo was a brick mason by trade and worked in Galveston for many years. He served in the US Navy based in San Diego, California. He was active in the Galveston Mardi Gras as well. Angelo spent 35 years as a football referee with the crew of Billy Rees, Jim Kleinecke, Buddy Mullens, and Robert McLaren. Angelo lived his entire life in Galveston and was a beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He Leaves many, many nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family members and friends too numerous to mention.
Angelo is preceded in death by his parents Paul James and Georgina Montalbano, of Galveston; sister, Sadie Jean Micheletti, of La Marque; and son, Michael Joseph Montalbano, of Galveston.
He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Maryann Montalbano of Galveston; sons, Paul and Peggy Montalbano of Galveston, and Louis and Tammy Montalbano of Galveston; daughters, Angela Kunz of Galveston, Kathy and John MacLean of Oak Leaf, Texas; daughter-in-law, Judi Montalbano of Glenn Heights, Texas; 9 grandchildren, and a great grandson, Michael; brother-in-law, Carl and Carole Vento; sister-in-law Rose and Curt Heximer of Covington, Louisiana.
Honorary pallbearers will be Paul Montalbano, Frank Montalbano, Louis Montalbano, Christopher Kunz, Christopher Kunz, Ryan Kunz, Paul Montalbano II and Parker Montalbano.
Due to his wishes the services will be private but the family encourages visitors to come to the family home on Thursday evening at 6:00 p.m. in celebration of Angelo’s life.
The family wishes to thank Pam Austin, RN, of the Hospice Care team for her wonderful assistance during this difficult time.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Angelo’s name to the Galveston chapter of the VFW.

RE: Vincent Emmite
Thank you Floyd! I enjoy trying to find obits and other information on the ones that already have memorials. I have found memorials of family members that have more information than I have and really enjoy knowing something that I didn't already know.
Thank you again!

Vincent Emmite
Hi Floyd,
Thank you for the transfer of Vincent to me. Hopefully I'll be able to find out more about him and his family. If I can ever help you or transfer anyone to you, just let me know.
Thank you again,

RE: Salvatore Emmite Sponsorship
Hi Floyd, I don't expect you to transfer the memorial to me. The only reason that I sponsor some of the memorials is to be able, in case I find pictures of them or other information, is to be able to add it in. The only reason that I sent you a message was maybe you could insert the obituary in for Salvatore in hope that it might help others find someone that they have been looking for. I got the obit for him from Please don't feel obligated to transfer him to me as I don't expect you to do that at all, just was hoping that you would copy and paste his obit in. If you want to transfer him, that's okay too. Thank you for the message and offer.

Vincent Gary Emmite
Floyd, Thank you for adding in Vincent's obituary and I would imagine that it will help others who are looking for more information than they have. Wish the picture was better, feel free to remove it if you don't want it there. Thanks again!

RE: The Bests
Would you happen to know what happened to John Joseph Best who came to Texas with a wife and six sons in 1845? I am wondering if he died on the trip because I have not been able to find anything on him once he got here.
