RE: Scalmanini
Thank you, Shelly! Appreciated your message!

I'm so sorry it had taken so long to fulfill your request. Other volunteers have photographed the cemetery in the past, and noted many requests had not yet been fulfilled.

Just happened to be in the area yesterday, and stopped in to see if I could find a few of the requests not yet been fulfilled!

Am so glad, yours was among those found! :)

Best Wishes,

Hi, Shelly,

You are very welcome. It was my pleasure, especially since those little trees were not messy. Sometimes I have had to get down and sweep needles off markers! Theirs is quite clean and pretty.

Hi Shelly!

You're very welcome!

I did find Alexia M. Mossi (1914-1985), while photographing your request. If you would like more info or a photo, please let me know!

Best Wishes,

RE: Harlow
No. But Inez was beside him. I posted a photo on her memorial. Neither stone was in very good shape. You're very welcome for the photo. Glad to be of help to you. Chris

Shelly, I've added a couple of pictures to this memorial in the Moscow Cemetery. I verified with the office the location of her memorial but the stone is so badly worn that I can't be totally sure that it is the correct one. About the only thing I could read on it was "Sept" (I think). I also took a picture of lot 53 which is the area she was buried in.

I added photos of the Bliss/Busch marker for Harry L. and Clara. Leola, Julius and Theresa were also on the marker. I created memorials for them but didn't know if they were Busches or Blisses. So, I transferred them to you so you can solve the mystery. I hope that was okay. If not, just transfer them back to me. There is room on the marker for a sixth name. Perhaps Harry W. is also buried here?

Capodanno family
Hi Shelly,

Got your email and added death date for Frances Capodanno as well as the name Ernesto (mostly I find him as Erasmo, but he must have been using Ernesto by the time of his death).

I would really love to hear from your cousin -- I realize that she might not be as interested in the history as I am, but given that she seems to be connected to both my maternal grandfather (the Holm or Holmes family) as well as my maternal grandmother (the Capodanno family), she must certainly be connected to us. Since we have very little knowledge of that connection, I would so appreciate it if she could clarify the relationship.

I posted a message on the board at for her cousin who did the tree; from her profile, it does seem that she is a distant relative, but hoping to get some info that way. Such a frustrating hobby!

Thanks again for all your help!

Marsh family
I took the picture of Thomas Marsh that you requested, but I noticed that there were other Marshes surrounding this headstone. I took those pictures and have also posted them to The names were John Richard Marsh, Robert Thomas Marsh, Richard Lamar Marsh, Leah Blackett Marsh, and Clifton Thomas Marsh. I do not know if there is any relation, but I thought I would post them just in case they are in your family. Happy hunting! ~Erika

Capodanno family
Shelly: I noticed that you were looking for information about both of my mother's grandparents: her paternal grandfather is Albert Holm and her maternal grandmother is Erasmo Capodanno. I think you mentioned that you were doing so on behalf of someone else -- maybe a cousin? I am wondering if you would be willing to put me in touch with that person or give them my contact information? There must be some connection between us.

Yes, she is in the correct cemetery.

Salem Pioneer had several name changes over the years. Notice the AKA names, IOOF & Rural Cemetery, on the main cemetery page. IOOF stands for Independent Order of Odd Fellows.

She is listed on Salem Pioneer's website as being in their cemetery.

And she has a gravestone there too (the gravestone photo is posted).

RE: Confused
Mills her maiden name
Conley her 1st married name
Kays her 2d married name.
Is that correct???

RE: 4 Kid Holms
Thanks for all this helpful information!

BTW, I discovered that the Frank Salvatore Capodanno IS related to my grandmother; her father was his brother, Erasmo. Your tree was extremely helpful, particularly in that it has his parents' names.

I am discovering so much about our family history and my siblings are enjoying learning about all of it as I go along. It's fascinating. There are so few remaining relatives who have information, that finding others who are also researching has been a real boon to me, especially as I live in Ohio and can't get to the grave sites.

RE: Holm and Capadanno

So glad you replied! As a result of your post, I requested a copy of his birth certificate to confirm cause of death. I looked for newspaper articles but found none, unfortunately. How would the caretaker have known that information? It would be so interesting to find out if it was a result of an accidental shooting or homicide!

I did get email suggesting I look at your tree but was a little leery of it; not obvious to me that it was my relative I was supposed to find, but will go back and look again now that I have heard from you.

Albert's first wife is also buried in Mt. Hope Cemetery, as are their four infant children. I wonder if they are buried anywhere near Albert? Not sure if his second wife would have done that or not.

I also hunted around to find out that the Capodanno referenced was for a different family than mine; it's been so hard to find anything about that branch that it was disappointing.

Thanks again for your help!

Holm and Capadanno
I discovered that you had entered information pertaining to my great grandfather, Albert Christian Holm. I very much appreciate your efforts on this, as I have been unable to find a death date anywhere else! But biggest surprise was to see that it had a cause of death - gun shot to chest. I've never seen anything like that on a headstone, so I wonder if you can elaborate a little and tell me if that's actually where you found that.

I also noticed a message from another person on your page that referenced the name Capadanno; that happens to be the maiden name of grandmother and I have been unsuccessful in finding out much about that family. I wonder if you can tell me the first name(s) of those folks that you found. I thought that they were buried in St. Mary's Cemetery, but I noticed somewhere that the two cemeteries (St. Mary's and Mt. Hope) are next to each other.

Thanks very much for any info you can provide.

Now I am confused...I note on the info you sent that she is buried at Knoxville, so I checked, and lo and behold she has a memorial at Knoxville Cemetery also....
Don't know who E.B. Mills is either...if Nancy's maiden name is Mills, they you are probably right...
