Frank Hein
I've noticed you manage 2 Frank Hein memorials. I am searching for Frank O Hein, born about 1874 (possibly from Saxony, Germany). He married my great-great Aunt Alice Copithorn at Chicago on 25 July 1905. Alice died in 1953, and is buried in St Paul Episcopal Cemetery near other Copithorns in Ashippun, Wisconsin.
The 2 memorial#s: 106152164 & 106159879.

If either of the Frank's are mine I will link him to his wife and son.

Thanks for any info.
All the best-

I did several edits on the above families. I changed a few death dates. Dates listed were burial dates. I have finished all the family links, I believe. Let me know if anything seem incorrect.

Thank you so much for all you do here!

Thank you for posting a picture of my Father's gravestone. I live in Texas, and I've never seen it. Is there a particular reason you posted it? His last name was Baker before he was adopted when he was a teenager.

As it states in 'edit', they are our Great-Grandparents.

Hello Christopher,

I found your record for Roy Bronkema and he is related to me. If it is possible, I would like to have his record transferred to me. I have pictures of Roy and can scan them so they can be added. Even if you do not transfer it to me, I will send in a nice picture of him when I get the chance. Thank you! Gloria Kamper

Hi Christopher,

You added a page for Ruth Morris. This is my grandmother. She died when I father was very young. He was not allowed to go to her funeral, and he has never seen her grave. Would you please take a picture of her monument stone?

She was buried at Bethania Cemetery. She was buried 7/13/1960 on Lot 59, Section 6, Division E.

RE: Several family members request to transfer to me
I sent a bunch of these to you, but I picked up my brother's Find A Grave number instead of mine, so I sent another edit with my correct Find A Grave number. Sorry.

Good Evening,
I am the great great grandchild of William and Amanda Panter and would request a transfer to my name. Here is the memorial number of Amandaw W. Panter 106163191. I have information to link to the whole Panter family in another cemetery and also the parents of Amanda. I would appreciate that. I would also request the rest of the Panters (Bertha, Charles, Elsie, George, George C. Harry, Infant, Paul C, William A.
Thank you!

There is no head stone in place yet. Would you like a photo of the grave site? Also, I placed the photo of Everette W Breig as requested.

Santo and Bertha Passarelli
Thank you so much for posting these two sites. They are the great grandparents of my nephew and Niece whose father passed away at age 26. They grew up not knowing their father and very little about his family. Your posting have definitely put some detail to the family line.

Santo's obituary is a definate addition to our records.

Thank you so much.

Gertrude W. Daliege
The information provided to you regarding the birth date of Gertrude W. Daliege by another member was incorrect. There is a Gertrude L. Dalige that is the daughter of Ernest and Mary Dalige who was born in 1918 but this is not the one in your memorial.
I have the death data that gives Gertrude W. Daliege birth information if you need it.

Before I move onto another family, I wanted to pass on one last thing that I found today- the obit of Michael Quirk, brother of Stephen. His memorial is #78265446. I submitted suggestions to the memorial owner regarding updated birth/death, locations, and linking him to his father John and his wife, Louise (Champeno) Quirk.

Thanks again for everything!

RE: John Francis Quirk
I got the obituaries for Stephen & Bridget (McBride) Quirk and as I had suspected, John Francis Quirk is indeed their son. If I don't get the obits posted on their memorials this evening, I'll have them on there in the next day or two.

RE: John Francis Quirk
The person whom I believe to be John's grandfather, also named John Quirk, is buried at St. Columba's as is some of Stephen's infant children.

I transcribed this cemetery several years ago and came up with about 500 or so people with headstones but knew there were many more in unmarked graves. Due to several major floods Johnstown sustained over the years, this cemetery suffered heavy damage and many stones were lost. If you look at the cemetery the remaining stones are in clusters within the plot, mainly in the rear of the cemetery where the terrain slopes uphill. You can see depressions in the ground where there are signs of unmarked graves.

I've been working on a project to try and identify as many people as possible buried there in order to update my cemetery record and the best way to do that is to actually research each family to a degree that was buried there. Thankfully PA has our death certificates on-line up to 1944 (soon to be up through 1960) which certainly helps. Plus all of the local obits are indexed from 1853-present.

Now, as for the cemetery- it started out as an overflow cemetery for St. John Gualbert in Johnstown. Once St. Columba's was established, they took over the cemetery. So not everyone in that cemetery actually belonged to St. Columba's. St. John's finally learned their lesson and established a cemetery on higher ground.

I'm not sure of the connection with Bishop Hugh Boyle but I am familiar with the family and the fact that only he, his mother and a brother survived the 1889 Johnstown Flood which killed over 2200 people. His mother Annie was a Keelan, of which there are many Keelan's buried in St. Columba's. I'm just not sure of the connection to the Quirk's. Since the Quirk family didn't have as much of a connection to St. Columba's, I didn't research them as thorough. If you follow the link above, you can see what I've found so far in regards to John, and then his son Stephen and his children.

Again, hopefully when I pull Stephen & Bridget's obits on Monday it will shed some light on John F. Quirk. I'd be very surprised if he is not their son. But if not, at least it will correct what I have, as I try to be as complete and accurate as possible.

No. I'm doing a project relating to the early families of St. Columba's Catholic Church here in Johnstown.
