RE: Filomena Ciseatore Denta
Hi Jerry, thanks for replying. I have passports and emigration paperwork from my grandfather Sabato Antonio Dente which shows his parents are Carmine Dente and Filomena Pescatore. I know they settled here in Whitemarsh twp (which is just a couple miles away) because my dad (age 90)always talks about growing up there. I have the passports and other paperwork if you want me to send a photo of it.
Thanks. And our last name ultimately became Dante (phonetically it's Donta and used to be pronounced Den te)What information do you have and where did you locate it?
Thanks again!

You provided parental links for Harold Saylor. They have a different last name. Could you provide me with information for his bio to explain? Thanks.

RE: Salvatore DeVivo
Yes, Salvatore DeVivo (1899-1983) is my 2nd cousin once removed. He is named after his father's father, Salvatore DeVivo (1828-1895), who was born and died in Giovinazzo, Bari, Puglia, Italy -- and who is the oldest brother to my great-grandfather Michele DeVivo (1847-1930). I did not know Salvatore or his family, but have traced all the DeVivo family members I could find who immigrated to the U.S. from Giovinazzo.

RE: McGovern-Murphy Memorials
Hi Jerry,
I am not related to these people, I am researching for a friend. I am out of my element searching for the Irish in Philadelphia. How easy the search is when you live in the community. I am unfamiliar with these little towns and histories that make up Philadelphia. I have put a lot of time into this search only to come up with nothing, only more questions.
Thank you for your reply and thank you for the work you are doing for Find a Grave.

I added the information but was wondering if you are related. I am related to the Daly's. Let me know if we have any mutual relatives in common. Thanks

Hi Jerry, I have noticed you have put info on several McGovern memorials. I am searching the McGovern-Murphy of Philadelphia and wondered if you are related. I am looking for Edward McGovern and Catherine Farrell of Philadelphia.

RE: Memorial Updates
Thanks Jerry for the offer, but I'm distantly related to this line, so maybe someone else would like to take care of the Mull's some day.
Happy hunting! Lavelle

RE: Mary Ellen
That would be great. Thank you for offering her profile to me. I'm so happy to have found her.

It is a very neat story. I have yet to find evidence of a legal marriage, but I found the newspaper article that states they did marry (perhaps informally?):
The article is dated 16 Nov 1928 in the Republican Northwestern newspaper of Belvidere, Illinois on page 5 in the very bottom right corner of the page.

Plus, finding Mary Ellen with JP was great... Thomas Coltman, her first husband was a prominent brick maker/distributor in Freeport, IL. He also went into poultry distribution during Winter, supplying New York and Boston. There is still a neighborhood called Coltman's Addition where he had his brick kiln and poultry drop-off location.

Thomas and Mary Ellen had 3 children together and I'm still looking for their places of rest. This discovery will really help.

Best wishes,

John Porter Fair's 2nd Wife
Hello! :)
I have been looking for my 3x great grandmother Mary Ellen (Stocks) Coltman's gravesite for a very long time. I found her in the Fair plot in Mount Hope Cemetery of Mankato, Jewell County, Kansas, USA. I was lead there by a newspaper article that announced the marriage of John Porter Fair, 85, a banker from Mankato, KS to Mrs. Mary Ellen Coltman, 81, of Freeport, IL. It talks about how they were sweethearts 60 years ago, before they were married to other people, and how they found each other again. A few days later they decided to marry and spend the rest of their remaining years together.
I added this info to John Porter Fair's profile, but felt it was necessary to say why. I hope this helps add to Mary Ellen's potential mystery.
Best wishes!

Andover Township cemetery
I have been doing work on the Andover Township cemetery in Henry Co., Illinois and came across your name on a memorial for Gust Fair.
I just thought that I would inform you that we have added all of the names of the Fairs that are buried in Andover, IL. and have also posted all of the headstone photos. Hope that you might be able to find more of your relatives there.
Have a great night,

RE: PFC James Benner
You are very welcome for the photo. I think all our veterans should be honored. We owe them all so much. My brother Asa was killed in Vietnam and three of my other brothers served our country. My husband is a Navy vet. My uncle made the jump in Normandy with the 101st. We owe them all so very much.
