RE: Find A Grave Memorial# 89790752
Pat,

When I first looked for him I could a memorial page from Margaret that simply said Carl Edwards.

I then looked at Margaret's obit, and it said she was the widow of Carl J. Edwards.

Finally, cemetery records indicate his name as Carl J. Edwards.

But to be honest, I don't know where I got the name Joseph. I could not duplicate the search, so I will assume I may possibly be, could be, may be, wrong.

Berel,

Could it be that since Carl Joseph Edwards wife died in 1952 (he would have been 49 years old) that he may have remarried Margaret.

The Joseph I listed and your Joseph were both had a birth year of 1903. If you have an idea of his wife's name,let me know and I will see what I can find.

Pat,

You're very welcome. I am glad I could have been of help.

New Orleans cemeteries are interesting, I guess that is why I enjoy walking them. There is no headstone (as you can tell) for those buried in that grave.

Carl (Nov 19, 1903-Apr 1, 1964), is buried with his wife, Margaret Marie Gray Edwards (Oct 27, 1902-Oct 12, 1984).

There is nobody else listed as buried at that site.

Your welcome. I have walked the cemetery twice and did not find a few of the requests. There were a few unmarked graves and three or four temporary markers that could not be read.

RE: Polly Lewing
Frances is memorial # 118531823 in the Carthage City Cemetery, but is actually located in the Odd Fellows Cemetery. I visited several cemeteries in Sabine Parrish, Louisiana, today and filled several of your photo requests. It might take me a couple of days to get them all posted. I'm retired and like to fill requests if my wife lets me, which she usually does.

RE: Polly Lewing
Polly, Robert, James, and Alton, plus Frances Williamson are all buried together in one area in the Odd Fellows Cemetery. Odd Fellows and Carthage City Cemeteries are adjacent, with no fence, just an imaginary line between them. The local funeral homes get them confused sometimes. I have two friends there buried head to foot - but they are in different cemeteries. I know the boundary well and the Lewing's are definitely in Odd Fellows, about four rows from City Cemetery. Hope that helps. Also, I just replaced Polly's marker photo - the old one showed part of my vehicle, which did not look right. Good luck. If I can help in the Carthage area, let me know.

RE: Miller Photo
I have added the photo. Find A Grave said the edits you made would be added by December 8. We should keep an eye on that in case it doesn't happen. I have had to ask Find A Grave for a memorial for a family member because the original contributor was inactive.

For Emma I see that the link was added from the other end, so perhaps Larry Mabra, who added her page, might have some information for you.

RE: Sabine Parish Area
I went and looked both of them up. I could actually do both in one weekend. I'll make them a goal!

We're staying home for the next few weekends, not sure when we're going back. Hunting season is firing up and the men aren't fishing so much. The up-side of that is that we get to go to the hunting camp and sit around the fire and enjoy family company for the weekend.

Good times!

RE: Sabine Parish Area
Pat, we have a camp at Toledo Bend. And I like to go up there and take pictures when I can. Maybe the next time I go I can go to some of those areas, but I usually stay somewhere in the Manny area. I'll keep those cemeteries in mind!

RE: Mariana Berel #96793959
Regarding Joseph Samuel and Jacob perhaps being the same person. I would tend to doubt it, but there are conflicting versions of when Jacob was born (the obit. puts his birth in late August 1817, while his tombstone implies 1816 or even late 1815). I would want to scan the records to make sure

a.) that the indexers did not miss a child in 1818

b.) that they did not mis-read the name for Joseph Samuel.

RE: Mariana Berel #96793959
It comes up like this:
LEWY Mariane
1825 Birth # 34
p.5
date: 2-Mar-1825
father: Wolff
mother: Lehndel DESSAUER
note: ohne Staatsbürgerliche Rechte
film # 1184384

The note implies that Wolff Lewy did not have the rights of citizenship in Breslau, probably because he did not live there or had just recently arrived.

RE: Mariana Berel #96793959
I'm glad to have helped you make the connection. Yes, I'm quite certain this is the correct family. Mariane is a pretty unusual name and Rino is the only instance I've ever seen. The dates are perfect and we did have the supposition that they were born in Breslau.

There is likely more information to glean from the actual records. Do you have the ability to read the old German script?

Added by Steve Miller on Oct 04, 2016 6:34 PM

RE: Mariana Berel #96793959
I think Rino must be רִנָּה, which I would transliterate more like "Rinnah". It can apply to men or women, but means "shouting for joy".
