RE: Anna
Good morning from NYC!
I was referring to the Find-A-Grave page I believed you maintain for the listing of Annie Moore (1874-1924), recorded as the first immigrant processed through Ellis Island, on January 1, 1892.

Her real first name was Anne; she was from Ireland and she married a man called Joseph Schayer, a bakery clerk and lived the rest of her days in the Lower East Side in Manhattan, NYC.

I thought you were listed as sponsoring her page - perhaps in going through pages, I got my information mixed up.

Best regards,

Can you provide an exact location for Annie Moore's grave in Calvary Cemetery?
Thank you.

RE: Noah William Drake
Thanks so much for the reply that helps a lot to understand the relationships. I recently found a lovely picture of Frederick and his lovely wife Mary Ellen tending to their chickens, I have posted it on Ancestry. Thanks to your pictures of her I was able to identify the photograph. If you would like a copy, please let me know.

I will look for the ship that they came over on, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out.

I did know of Mrs. Connoly passing, I am in touch with her son Carl. I am very sad to hear the news of Agnes Marie passing though.

My love and best wishes for a very happy new year.

I wonder how Noah came to be thought of as Irish? The Drake line is German as we well know and if his father removed the kids to raise them then I wonder if the Iraih streak was a nod to his Mother?

I would love to hear your thoughts on this.

Helen Fairchild
Since you sponsored the page for Helen Fairchild at the Somme American Cemetery in France, I thought you would be interested to know that I just discovered she also has a marker in the Watsontown, Pennsylvania, Cemetery. (See Find A Grave #125985607). I am working on trying to find out where her parents are buried so we can link them.

just a hello
I came upon your site while looking for your memorial for Maj Annie Fox. I enjoyed looking at your site and would like to invite you to mine. Specifically the 1-8 Jumping Mustangs. I have created a virtual memorial for as many of the KIA of that unit who died in Vietnam Nam during 1965-1971.

Happy Holidays

RE: Comrades
Hi Grace,
Thank you for your service as well. The least we as veterans can do is to remember and honor those who have already left this world - and are hopefully saving us a seat in the next one.
All The Very Best,
Jami (Sgt G)

I didn't know that....
Thanks for letting me know how the funeral director helped put that woman away for 8 was a bright spot that one person had compassion. I am speechless with grief over it. So glad so many feel as I do and come to pay respects. I just can't understand not once intervening or even going to her husband (not that his complacent butt would help) and just flat telling him..."she's going to kill him if you don't do something". How could they not? How could Minnesota let her slide after 8 years?

So sad.
Thanks for the info,

Thank you for posting his info. I last saw my father about 37 years ago and have thought of him pretty much everyday since. I always hoped for some kind of reunion but my many efforts had proved fruitless. Now I can close this chapter of my life but still i wonder if he thought of me. i bear no ill will or resentment; only the sad fact that my life was a lot lonelier without my father in it physically. In my memories, He will live forever....Thank you so much for your site

Junie's passing

I was very sorry to hear of Junie's passing. I had hoped that he would be with us for a little while longer.

All my best, Michael M. McChesney

Our Connection
The memorial tributes you created for your loved ones are so beautiful! Thank you! Grainne, we have a connection: we both lived in Hollywood Florida. I went to Hollywood Central Elem. School and then McNichol Junior High(now Middle School)... then Nova H.S. My family moved to Hollywood in 1963, my aunt and uncle had already been living there for a decade. I went back last summer (I still have relatives there), and the place has changed.

Thank you for letting me know that your brother, John, had passed. I was pleased to be able to take a memorial photo for you both. This generation we are losing are just amazing people. I am very sorry for his passing.

Jess Milo McChesney

Thanks for posting this. My name is Michael Manson McChesney and Jess Milo McChesney is my Uncle. I knew that he was a pilot in WWII and that he was shot down over Italy. He never talked about the war in my presence. However, when I was 21 years old in 1963, I had the need of some fencing. So, I phoned up a fencing contractor and he asked me if I was related to a Milo McChesney and I said that he was my uncle. There was a long pause and he said that there would be no charge for the fence. I asked him why and he indicated that Uncle Milo saved his life by pulling him out of a burning plane in Italy. As I recall, his name was Dick McCulla (spelling of last name may be off).

Uncle Milo's obituary indicated that he was preceeded in death by his brother Leroy. In fact, he was preceeded in death by Leroy and Homer Manson McChesney, his older brother from a prior marrage. Homer Manson McChesney is my father.
