link to your tree
Good morning Pam,

just wanted to let you know that I followed instructions on getting to your tree, but had no luck... I did the first time and then did an update on my computer and now I can't get back to it. Could you send me a message through ancestry's link and maybe that would work? thanks a bunch!

RE: ancestry
am curious as to how far down the line you are talking.. I looked at your main tree but am not sure who to look for... since so many are "private" I don't know where to look for Lang or Roll

Hello "Jersey girl".... while updating my grandparents history.. I noticed that your name was under a picture that I posted on Find A Grave... Their names are Henry & Julia Lang. I was fortunate to be raised by them; along with my siblings and father. I would appreciate it if you have any information on this lineage if you could share it since most of the family is now gone. My Aunt Elizabeth was primarily the "historian" till I took over but sadly she is now gone as well. The only remaining family from their children are my dad Walter Earl and my Uncle George Frederick. I have been working on this for the past 20+ years, but trying to find anything on Henry; ie: parents,siblings has lead me to a wall. Please let me know if you have anything further.

I believe Mary J Sleith is my great-grandmother and was interested in seeing if you are related and potentially could have more information regarding my heritage. Sadly, my father passed away last year and I have no one on his side to help gather information. Any help you can offer is welcomed!

RE: George Raab #67027911
Hi. I just wanted you to know there is no such cemetery as Bay Shore Cemetery. Only Oakwood and St. Patrick's.

RE: George Raab #67027911
Obituary - George Raab died May 16, at the age of 65. He was the husband of Mathilde (Nee Zang) Raab. He reposed at Sullivan Funeral Home, 42 Second Avenue, Bay Shore, New York until Thursday May 18 when religious services were conducted by the Rev. Arthur Steinke of the Grace Lutheran Church of Central Islip, at 10 a.m. Committal services and cremation were at Washington Memorial Park, Coram.

RE: James Edward Monahan 49267071
Pam - not a brother at all. Do the following to see how to link a name to a memorial:

Go to your profile page;
Click on Help with Find A Grave;
Scroll down to the section labeled "Submitting Information ..." (4th section);
Scroll to the bullet "How do I add a link ..." and click on it;
Read the instruction and give it a try.

Note: copy/paste the appropriate "coding" into the bio versus attempting to re-type it yourself.

It might take a few attempts for it to look right in the bio section.

RE: James Edward Monahan 49267071
Pam - glad to help, and great you could grab a copy of the accident off BTW, the other naval officer killed has been entered on findagrave, so if you wish, you could link the name of ENS D. P. Werner to his memorial (#57226600) when you display the news article.

RE: James Edward Monahan 49267071
I fond a specific hit on by using his full name. Also narrowed it by entering the year 1946. If you don't have direct access (a Google search with the same key words should get a link and a few displayed words from the article), let me know. I think I can capture the page and send it to an email address as an attachment of some type. Mike

RE: James Edward Monahan 49267071
Reading the obit for Patricia (65119467), it clearly states her Navy husband, James, died in 1946, in a plane crash. There's a newspaper account of the accident taking place in New York; plus additional NYC records of his death.

I don't believe there's a "second" James E. Monahan, who dies in Ohio, in 1946, also the result of an aircraft accident.

The only mix up were the parents, and that appears to be straight now. :)

RE: James Edward Monahan 49267071
Pam - It looks like the relationships are straighten out. Thanks.

My bad, as I should of stated "placed" instead of "sent", since you're correct, there's no message sent if someone places an edit request.

BTW, if you wish to add the cause of death; LT. Monahan was involved in a fatal aircraft accident when approaching the Naval Air Station, located at Floyd Bennett Field.

ames Edward Monahan 49267071
Hi - I've sent a series of edits regarding this memorial - the locations and parents are mixed up, and should be instead assigned to a James E, Monahan #53616775 (of NJ); he's a child of Robert & Edna.

I've submitted to you the correct parents for LT J. E. Monahan, USNR, of Wisc. (see the headstone photo).

If you have any questions, just ask, the records are available - which is how I discovered the mix up. Cheers, Mike

You left a message asking me if I was an administrator on this site. What site? Did you have a question?

RE: Edith (Wahl) Essex Find A Grave Memorial# 73724243
Hi, You're very welcome, glad I was able to help. I do not have any info on who Edith's biological parents were. I do have a transcribed copy of the 1885 NJ. State Census for her. She was living with Anthony and Louisa in New Providence, her age was listed as between 5-20 years old. The only other people living in the household were Joseph and Mary Wahl. Since both of them were aged "over 60" I would think Joseph is Anthony's father, but I am not sure Mary is his mother, but perhaps a 2nd or 3rd wife of Joseph.
Since Edith was living with Anthony and Louisa in 1885 I would think her birth parents may have died sometime between her birth and 1885.
I do have copies of the 1850, 1870, and 1880 census' for Anthony, as well as a copy of his marriage to Louisa in 1872.
I would be happy to email this info if you would like to have it. Al

I see a photo you posted of William and Ella (Hildebrant) Hoffman and I'm new to this site so not sure how you come in contact with the photo. I'm their great grand son.

RE: Crowley Family
Hi Pam,

Well, it is possible there is a relationship somewhere along the family line, although those names don't directly sound familiar. My Crowley family was a large family. Lots of siblings/ancestors. Appreciate what you find. Thanks.

You can find my family tree as the Pohl family tree. I am on Ancestry. my screen name on ancestry is JPohl256.

Crowley Family
Hi Jerseygirl,

I am researching the Crowley Family from NJ. Specifically, William Henry Crowley Born 5 Nov 1902 D 1929 - Not sure of specific date. You provided a posting here for Henry Crowley with Birth and death dates that are the same. Could this be William Henry Crowley and how are you related to the Crowley family from NJ?

I tried to find the marker to fill the photo request you have for their daughter Patricia Freeman, but she was not found in the parent's plot or vicinity. Do you know if she has her own plot located elsewhere within the cemetery?
