RE: Francis O Biscuso #87311405
Yes, Holycross A-Old Common is the eastern section of Holycross G. It primarily consists of graves that were moved there when the other cemeteries closed. Lots of unmarked graves.

Francis O Biscuso #87311405
I found his marker as Orlando Biscuso in the Unconsecrated Infants section of Mt Calvary. Edits have been submitted for his complete name and full plot location. You may wish to remove the photo uploaded for his family's plot located elsewhere in the cemetery. --Judy

RE: Schwartz Section 41
Oh, it is light enough to move I just need help finding the exact location of Joseph's grave. Still working on that. I liked your message.

RE: Schwartz Section 41
okay so, The headstone was only 2 off of where it should have been. It looks like lot 166 but is 266.
The headstone is where Jessie is buried but, it says Joseph on the top. I tried raising it and have it leaning on a stick. I wanted to actually move it to where Joseph was buried but I haven'y quite figured that out yet. I need a shovel to get the job done.

Hi Zelda,

Thank you for the information. I really appreciate it.

RE: Schwartz Section 41
Hi, I could not find any others with at name in Section 41. I hate guessing but, I think I am going with the same headstone for both. I took a picture also. It looked pretty good. Do you want to transfer your picture to these graves or would you like me to add them?

RE: Schwartz Section 41
Emil Schwartz - 11/30/1893 - 12/03/1893 42- 126
Emil H Schwartz 11/07/1872-09/13/1955 95-501/502
Emil H Schwartz 06/13/1875-06/20/1875 M - 380
Joseph and Louise Schwarz are in Section T Lot 72
Joseph & Josie in Section 41 are babies of Joseph & Alma Schwartz.
I have no idea where they are buried or even the correct spelling of the last name. I just need to know which memorials should get the headstone or both the same one since the headstone is on neither grave space.

Schwartz Section 41
I got a picture of the headstone in Section 41 near the end of the row.
I believe it reads Schwartz and Schwartz. There is a Josie near in the same row Space 266 Row 14 and Joseph Space 461 Row 23. The Babies are siblings. Emil Schwartz is in Section 42 Lot 126. The picture is pretty readable but I don't know whether it is for these Schwartz's. What do you think?

Emilia Anna Bush
Hello Zelda,

I found Emilia (note spelling) Bush and her husband William at Calvary Cemetery in Cleveland. They are buried together. You also had chosen the incorrect William Bush (buried in Greene County, Ohio).

Emilia's memorial is 171344152 and William's memorial is 171344268.

I hope this is helpful.

Amelia Bush 118726040
Hello Zelda,

After looking at the information you wanted to update for Amelia Bush, I found that she is not the person you think she is. The Amelia Bush at Harvard Grove was born in South Carolina in 1881 and was the daughter of Gus Buyer and Lillian Hartley. Additionally, she was African-American.

You will need to search further for the Amelia Bush you are looking for.

Thomas Ryan
Thank you for the information. My proven ancestors with sources are Catharine Ryan Pringle and her husband James Pringle.
Catharine was b. 1846/47 b. Ireland
Her father was Thomas Ryan b. Ireland
Catharine and James were living in Belleville, Republic Co, Kansas in 1893. Newspapers tell of her traveling to South Charleston and Columbus to visit her ailing mother who is not expected to live. Catharine returns to Belleville in August of 1893 and her mom is very frail. There is an Ohio death record for a Sarah Ryan who died in Columbus either January or June 1894.
Catharine's obituary mentions her parents as Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Ryan.
Closest census match I've found.....
1860 Ohio Green Co Cedarville twp and the same family in 1870 in Ohio Madison Co Paint twp.
This is the family you referenced that includes Thomas F. Ryan. Thomas F.'s death certificate lists Sarah O'Connell as his mother. I haven't located this family after the 1870 census.
Birth year for Thomas seems consistently abt. 1810/11. Birth year for Sarah is questionable. 1860 she's 42 and 1870 45 is how I read it. If my Catharine is the second child of this family, she's 12 b. 1848 which is a close match, that makes mom 18 when she was born. Catharine is listed after another daughter Ann age 13. This is all possible but young to be having kids.
Thomas Ryan b. Ireland is a very common. This may not be the right family and just coincidence.
On the Ohio death page 227 for Sarah there is a number 4645. What does this reference? Would like to know what I'm looking for. Thought it might refer to a file. Records here in Texas for Ohio are pretty basic. I've been using
Thanks for reading this. Don't forget me if you make any discoveries on Thomas Ryan. D.

Thomas/Sarah Ryan
Hello Zelda,

I'm searching for my ancestors Thomas and Sarah Ryan. They were both born in Ireland and given quite popular names.
The two entries you added closely match the dates in my records. You found them in Mount Calvary cemetery.
Do either of them have a marker?
Where are they located within the cemetery?
Thank you for your help

RE: Saile Family
That helps a lot! The information our family had was that our Paul Saile was born around 1820, but I don't have an exact date. If Paul and Walburga were his parents, that is the furthest back I currently know of in that family line. Thank you so very much for your help!

Saile Family
I noted that you have done a lot of work on the Saile family and was curious if you were any relation? I am a descendant of Paul Saile and though he lived in German Village and was buried at Mt. Calvary with all these other Saile families, I can't find a link between my family and any of these. Was just curious if you had any information that might help and very appreciative of all the work you did linking the family graves already.

Have 2 more half siblings to add to children of Frances Grell Hartung (Louis.)
Charles L "Carl" Freshman was Frischman 1894-1961

Frank B Freshman was Frischman 1900-1982.

Both are buried at Sunset. Couldn't figure out how to add to Frances and the Hartung siblings. Thanks

Are you by any chance related to the Grell, Hartung, Frischman/Freshman families. My grandmother was Mary Kathryn Hartung Kreuz. Only daughter of Louis Hartung.

RE: Are you OK?
OH.. WHEW!! I am so glad to see
"Since I haven't died... It's also possible it's a memorial I created and transferred to someone who subsequently lost their account or transferred it to FindAGrave"

I think you are correct in that it is someone you must have transferred, maybe "they" died. Also all the family links are from ME. I was busy getting all the children for Andrew Culbertson linked up that day, that is when I found the one I wrote to you about. Just my usual "busy bee" work.
Well one good thing, the edits I submitted were dang near immediately accepted. I did not have to wait 3 months for them to go through like I do for "Dave" who NEVER works on keeping my submitted edits updated. He just waits for them to default. It is SO annoying!

Kind of spooked wondering why Find A Grave Memorial# 90692927, was created by you and is now owned by "Find a Grave"?

RE: Elizabeth Alice Walsh et al.
There is an unmarked/empty space between mother Mary and child Mikie so don't really know who might be there without the cemetery records.

RE: New Painter memorials


I'd like only to borrow them for a few days. I'm making an effort to avoid becoming a memorial hoarder.

Thank you,
