RE: re: Henrietta Gill
Thanks Diane,
I actually did have it. Her nephew, Phelps Gill, was my great grandfather. He is buried at Lakeside right behind my mother & brother. Phelps was a decorated Capt in WWII. His father Marshall is at Lakeside also. Henrietta's father, Francis Gill is buried at Erie Cemetery. He fought in the Civil War. She was late in coming over from Canada compared to the rest of the family. I actually took her headstone picture on June 6 2012 but never posted it. Thanks again for the transfer and info

Joseph Lloyd
Hi, Diane. I sent some edits to you for Joseph Lloyd as to the place of birth and death, also, links to his parents. The information comes from his Pa Death Certificate and research I have done into the family. His parents, John and Elizabeth Lloyd are my GGGG Grandparents. Their son Samuel Lloyd is my GGG Grandfather. Just trying to link the family members. Thanks.

RE: Robert W. Rancuch
It has to be an error. My dad's brother was definitely Robert.

Thank you for the picture of the headstone for my Uncle Robert. I visited that cemetery a couple of times looking for information about him and his brothers who died as infants but was told there were no markers. I was amazed to find the picture here tonight and so soon after you posted it.

Johann & Maria Fiedler
Dear Diane,

Thanks so much for adding the headstone pic for my GG Grandparents! I have also seen the death cert regarding Maria's death. So sad :-( My father tells me that she never learned to speak English once in the US, so it may have been easy for her to accidentally confuse bottles from the apothecary. I also have a picture of her from her (open casket) funeral sent to me by a relative, but, of course, that type of pic cannot be posted here. I also have a newspaper clipping of Johann's obituary. Are you also a relative???

Warm Regards,

Bronislawa Pietras
Sorry, my previous message stopped short. Can you tell me WHERE in Trinity cemetery Bronislawa's memorial is? I could not find it in what was shown on a map to be the St Stan's section. She is a relative and we'd like to be able to visit her grave. Erie Cemetery assoc. couldn't even find her in their database & asked if she was buried under another name. Any help you can give would be appreciated!!

Hi. Anthony was my grandmothers brother. My grandmother was Anna Wardzinaki Walsh. I remember him as a young girl. He was my Uncle Tony! I always liked him. My father is Richard Walsh. How were you related to Anthony?

Hi Diane,
Thanks for making all the bio additions to military veterans I've been sending you.

I'm visiting at my sister's house in North East until July 7. I'm trying to organize a little "meet and greet" lunch with other Find-a-Grave members somewhere in Erie.

If you would like to join us, e-mail me at the address on my profile page and I'll send you my cell phone number.

Cheers, Rich

Bazyl Czuczman
Thank you Diane for this information. Bazyl was my grandmother's first husband and has no biological relationship; however, very little is known about his family. He was my grandmother's first true love and her heart was always in Erie PA even though she never resided there after the 1920s. I never want him to be forgotten so I have "adopted" him as my extended grandfather. If you ever hear or see any other family members of Bazyl, I would be greatly appreciative to receive the information. Here are a few other spellings of his first name: Wasyl (marriage certificate) and Basyl (my grandmother's spelling). Sadly to say the one and only picture my grandmother had of Bazyl was her wedding picture in a beautiful antique frame, which was stolen from her attic when the neighbor moved (it was a twin home and there was no wall separating the attics). He was a very handsome man and most of all very kind. Thank you again. Judy

Bazyl Czuczman's memorial
You have recorded my grandmother's first husband's marker located in the St. Stan's section of Trinity Cemetery in Erie, PA. The memorial number is 97695771. I was at the cemetery today and tried to locate it myself but was unable. There is a narrow one lane road separating the St. Stan's section. If it would be possible to tell me some of the surrounding markers or the markers by the road, it would be very helpful. I live 5 1/2 hours away from Erie but plan to be back in the area to do more genealogy research. thank you
