Hi Bill, this is an accident report from the newspaper on this memorial in case you want to add something to his memorial. Thanks Grace
TONAWANDA NEWS Thursday, April 25,1974 front page
"Son of Lewiston Judge 1 of 2 killed in smashup
Two Niagara County men, one the son of Lewiston Town Justice John G. Gamble, were killed at about 9:40 last night when their station wagon spun out of control and eventually rammed two trees on the Wilson-Cambria Road, Town of Wilson.Dead are Roger Gamble, 33, of 5855 Pearl St., Sanborn, and Peter A. Scutt, 33, of 481 Mountain View Drive, Town of Lewiston, identified as the driver. Niagara County sheriff deputies said Scutt's station wagon was south-bound on the Wilson-Cambria Road near Nelson Road when it went out of control, struck a guard rail and bridge abutment on the west side of the road, swerved to the east side of the road, jumped a guard rail, and flew 40 feet through the air. The car then struck a tree broadside on the driver's side, careened another 68 feet and landed against a second tree, this time striking the passenger side, deputies said. Niagara County Coroner Daniel K. Andrews pronounced the pair dead at the scene. Members of the Wilson Volunteer Fire Company, under the direction of Chief Michael Kress, helped free the victims, Who were pinned in the wreckage. The car was described as a "total loss." At the time of the accident, Justice Gamble was in North Tonawanda, serving as chairman of a retirement dinner honoring former Assistant Police Chief Jerome F. Kalota. Two state troopers came to Sikora Legion Post on Payne Avenue at about 12:30 a.m. to notify the judge of his son's death."

Do you know this family? I have a headstone for her sister Agnes Steinbrenner in Oakwood Cemetery in Niagara Falls but I don't think Agnes is there. I was wondering if you had any info on the family. Thx.

Hi-now that you have so nicely corrected and linked Norman to his wife, can you delete my message you copied onto the page with my address etc on it! You have correctly added Kate and I appreciate it, but a message like that isnt usually added to a persons page? Thank you Bill

RE: Filmor-Halsted Graves
Hi, Bill,

I hope you have a good and safe trip.

Will do. Should have it all waiting for you when you get back.

Thanks for all of your work on Find-a-Grave. Especially with this cemetery, if you didn't already have the names posted, so that I can look for - sometimes - individual letters in the right places on the eroded markers, I wouldn't have been able to associate a lot of the photos with their people. As it is, I expect there will be some I still can't identify.

Take care.

RE: George Moote
Hi, Bill,

Thank you! You made my day - both with your understanding and with the story. We live in a strange new world.

Things look a lot better, Moote-wise. I had a time last night trying to figure out what I had done wrong so I could undo it!

I still have a lot of photos to post to memorials for folks in Fillmore-Halstead. Hope to get that done soon.

Thanks, and take care.

Halstead-Fillmore Cemetery
Hi, Bill,

I hope you are doing well.

I was looking for the children of some folks buried in Greenwood Cemetery in Wilson tonight. I think there is a possibility that several of them are in Halstead-Fillmore, but none of them have marker photos. Because you posted so many of the memorials, I was wondering if you knew if the lack of photos is because no one has had a chance to get out to take them, or because a lot of markers are missing/illegible/whatever. If it's the former, I have camera, will travel. It would probably be a couple months before I could get over there, but I'm more than happy to do some photography.

I was also wondering if you have an Ortt in your ancestry - perhaps a Harriet Ortt who married Charles Siddall? If so, we're distant cousins.

Thanks for any help and/or guidance you can give me. I really appreciate all of the work you've done on find-a-grave.

Take care.

Bill the Find A Grave # for Benjamin's mother Lillian Pearl NICHOLS Wagner is: 157831570, she is also the mother of Helen DIEZ Fletcher who you also have # 399627730 I don't see a William DIEZ JR. who died in 1907 as an infant BUT if you have him, he too is a child of Lillian & her 1st husband William DIEZ who died in 1916. REASON I'm getting these all completed is for the 200th Anniversary Celebration of OUR Ancestor ROBERT NICHOLS who settled here in 1816 Lillian was one of his descendants. Celebration is being held June 4, 2016 at the Cambria Fire Hall IF you know of anyone related to this PIONEER have them contact me: for details

RE: Pauline Sullivan
I know what you mean. I entered the sisters and brothers in the bio section of Agnes, too, because of the limitations of the linking. Glad to help. We're still trying to decode Agnes' headstone but we're having great fun doing it on Cemetery Oddities on Facebook. I actually volunteer at Oakwood so I just have to get into their books and do a little detective work to solve that little headstone mystery.

Gertrude Bodekor
I am trying to locate Gertrude Bodeker and wanted to hopefully confirm this person is she. The person I am looking for has the maiden name of "Graff" Born about 1903 in Tonawanda to Jesse and Mary Graff. Do you have any information on her maiden name or if at one time she lived in Monroe, Michigan? Phil Kohler
