The death of Peter A. Lomonte
Jodi, I found the article on how Peter A. Lomonte's death and would to ask you if you could put the information on your memorial for him. My grandmother was Rosa Lomonte who married Gaspare Fasullo. I had the article on how Pete died from years back, but never got around to finding it until just recently. My grandmother was one of Peter's aunts. Anything you might be able to do, will greatly appreciated. I'll paste the article for you.

Hunter Met Instant Death Beneath Overturned Auto
Peter J. Lamonte Lost Life on Way to Sour Lake for Duck Hunt. – Four Others in the Car Escaped Unhurt – Machine Lifted From Victim by Aid of Train Crew.
Pete A. Lamonte, a North Side barber, met instant death early Sunday morning when the automobile in which he and four other young hunterswere going to Sour Lake turned completely over in a ditch on the Houston-Beaumont road about eight miles east of Liberty.
The other occupants of the car were thrown clear of the car and escaped uninjured. Lamonte was thrown into the ditch and the auto rolled over on him crushing his chest. The party, consisting of Pete Lamonte, Vincent Lamonte,Lewis McBride, O. Bingham and Jimmie Younger, left Houston shortly after midnight Saturday to go duck hunting in the marshes near Sour Lake.
According to Lewis McBride, who made a statement to Justice of the Peace Leon Lusk, he was driving the automobile at a moderate rate on a slight curve in the road when the front wheel struck a soft spot, causing him to lose control of the steering wheel. The car swered into the ditch and turned completely over throwing all its occupants out. Pete Lamonte fell in the ditch and the car rolled over on his body.
Unable To Remove Car. A desperate effort was made to remove the car from his body, but the ditch was so boggy that the men could not stand up in it and lift the car. One of the party ran in a nearby farm house and phoned C.J, Wright’s ambulance. About 20 minutes after the accident a fseight train on the Southern Pacific was flagged and Engineer E.J. Gardry and Fireman Jim Urquhart and several other members of the crew assisted on removing the body from beneath the car. Wrght’s Ambulance made the trip to the scene of the accident and brought the body two members of the party to Houston while the other two remained to bring the car back to the city. The dead man was 23 years old and was born and raised on the north side. For the past several years he had been engaged in the barber business on Hardy street. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Lamonte, who resides at Harrington and Hardy streets. An inquest was held Sunday morning by Justice Lusk, and he later gave a verdict of death resulting from accidental causes.
Survivors all reside in Houston. Besides his parents, the dead is survived by three sisters, Misses Antoinette, Grace and Mary Lamonte, four brothers, Joseph, Vincent, Nicholas and Sam Lamonte, an uncle, Tony Lamonte, and an aunt, Mrs. Rosa Fasullo, all of Houston. The funeral will be held Monday afternoon at 3:30 o’clock from the family residence, Harrington and Hardy streets, thence to St. Patrick’s church. Interment will be made in Hollywood cemetery. The pallbears will be seclected from members of the barbers’ union of which the deceased was a member. They will be: B.S. Young, W.J. Duerig, G.H. Greer, R.C. Fitch, C.G. Noland and Joe Passalqua.
Thank you. Suzan (Fasullo) Fausset

I will be at the Evergreen Cemetery sometime the first two weeks of May. Bob was married to my cousin. I will take some photos of his grave for you. I don't want to claim it yet since it's still a month away but wanted to let you know. Are there any other Sinclairville, Cassadaga, or Gerry photos you need? I will be seeing Bob's widow when I'm there.

RE: Franscioni
Thanks so much Jodi. By the way, your photo blog is a great idea. About 30 yrs ago I use to buy up old photos at antique stores and mail them to historical and genealogical societies all over the U.S., hoping families would make a connection. I was able to find some of my own relatives that way and they had similar photos taken the same day and could identify everyone for me. Needless to say that didn't happen often, but so worth the effort when it does. Take care and thanks again.

Hi Jodi - Saw on your blog the message Carli left regarding Erma [Franscioni] Eckman. Since I maintain the memorials for Erma and other Franscionis, I would like to get in touch with her. I don't feel right leaving her a message on your blog, so was wondering if you would be willing to see if she might contact me thru Find A Grave? I guess the easiest for her would be to follow your blog's link to Erma's memorial and then she could leave me a message there. If you'ld rather not, that's fine though.

RE: Jacob Harburger photo request
The problem is that there isn't really a dokumentation about the graves and the sections. The other problem is that most of the stones are written in hebrew. It would be great if you could get some information. I will try too.

RE: Thank you
You're very welcome! I saw that 2 people said they couldn't find it. It was a hard stone to read and I had to wet it down to take a photo but the real credit goes to my wife for finding it.

Lizzie Harris - Holy Cross Cemetery
I'd like to thank you for taking your time to contribute so many memorials to the Find-a-Grave database.

I've submitted an edit for Lizzie Harris, buried in Holy Cross Cemetery, but just realized I should also give you justification for the change. My husband is Lizzie Harris' GG Grandson and I have been researching the family history. Lizzie Harris is actually Elizabeth Kieran (Wilson, Kennedy, Harris) daughter of Arthur Patrick Kieran and Anna Maher, both buried in St Peter's Cemetery in Quincy, Adams, Illinois, where Lizzie was born. I have determined the relationship based on legal documents and verbal family history.

The edit I submitted was for Anna Kieran (only), but I would like to include a link to her father also.

RE: Thank you
Hi Jodi,

That Family Tree was designed by a friend, and I use PhotoShop to enter names and dates and locations in each leaf.
It's not really downloadable. I charge $65 to fill out a tree with given information.

It's really nice design.

I am selling them on Ebay if you want a better look:

"Edits" tab on home page
HI - I'm doing a quick survey of about 400 people on my friends list just to see how many are aware of the new "Edits" tab on their home page. If you could just shoot me back a brief response, either way that would be great. Thanks.
