RE: Adam Armbrust
I would very much appreciate that. I would really like to see the pictures. I am very upset right now to think that the conditions there were so unpleasant and when I hear that the marker was no longer on it's foundation I am livid. You are a Godsend my friend. Perhaps you could be the person that explains what the term 'Christian charity' is supposed to represent. I am one that believes you don't mess with the elderly, small children or people's final resting places. I have very strong and inflexible ideas with regard to those things. You don't know how much I appreciate that you have done this. I can't say I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures, but I need to know what is going on over there. Thanks again, my dear dear friend!!!

Gregg.socal@hotmail.com just in case you can't find it Thanks again!

RE: Adam Armbrust
Thanks so much! Actually it says 1848, but he was born in 1847. I couldn't tell you how that happened. I am really unhappy with that cemetery. Can you tell me exactly how the stone was when you found it? (I am sooooo sorry about the section number. I will definitely change thatr.!) Thank you so much. What a great guy you are. Had the marker been removed from the base? Was the grass not cut or was the grass beginning to grow over it and swallow it up? I'm just want to make sure I have a clear picture in my mind as to the condition at the time. Thanks buddy!~

RE: Adam Armbrust
Thanks Elvis! I really appreciate it. That really worries me to hear that, though. It is right along the roadway and the perpetual care was paid on it. I honestly don't trust them and if they have knocked that marker over again, I am not sure what action to take. Tell your poor wife I said how sorry I am. :-(
Take care!
Gregg

Hi Elvis...
Haven't heard from you, hope everything is all right. When you get a chance, if you could possibly do me a favor and take a picture for me as it is rather important for nothing more than personal reasons. It is the grave of Adam Armbrust at St Mary's. The reason is that he is in a single grave and years ago they knocked all of the stones over in that section using the 'no perpetual care was paid on these' excuse so that it was easier to mow. My mom actually paid the perpetual care on her g-grandfather's space and they up righted the marker. (back in the early 80s) I honestly don't trust them and want to make sure it is upright still. A nice picture of it and the assurance it is still upright would be a load off of my mind. It is Adam Armbrust. He is in Section 8, Subsection A, Grave 385. It is rather easy to find. He is on the south side of the section right along the roadway. It is a not a big stone, but a white marble one that slopes forward from back to front. Like it said, it is right on the roadway. This is particularly dear to us, because my mother remembers his wife and how sweet she was. She was not Catholic and yet placed him there because he was very devout even though she knew she would never be allowed to be buried there as a non Catholic. The other reason is that to purchase that marker must have been very difficult for her financially. One year after they were married, Adam Armbrust was scalded terribly when a vat of boiling lard poured over him while working at the Werk Co. He was incapacitated and unable to work. His wife needed to support him and their daughter and she went to work as a maid. Her Uncle owned Jung Brewery and her cousin owned Sohn Brewery (called Clyffside too) She went to work as a maid for her relatives! Charming people, huh? I'm sure I know where they are right now!! ;-) For her to have purchased that marker shows what kind of person she was and so it being there and cared for is a big deal to me and my mom. Thank you so much, Elvis. No rush. I just hope it's upright, clean, and being trimmed around. At the very least it had better be upright! (they have some bad habits at that cemetery) Thanks, buddy

Hey Elvis!!!

My buddy and I here busted up laughing about 'Big Elvis.' It is so cool that someone so far away is so familiar with him!!! Mayor Goodman (either former or current as now his wife is mayor) had one day that was officially 'Big Elvis' day. There have also been reality shows that have followed him. That is too cool buddy.
By the way, my name is Gregg. I have a friend in Palm Springs who used to be in the military and due to the nature of his former work, he had to choose a new name at one time and his name is Dallas (he loved the show). If you lived in Vegas, you could just change it to Elvis and no one would care. About 30% of the people here I know have changed their names. Ex. Jason Dinant=JDOTSON...like and email address is the most unusual. A lot take the last name Vegas. Here, to become famous, you just have to be the loudest most attention grabbing person and the next thing you know, some club is hiring you as their promoter. I retired in 2005 from a large Real Estate Investment Trust firm, after I was dumped after 18 years! Grabbed my stocks, my proceeds from the sale of the house, etc. Put it into an annuity and that was that.
The locals here are crazy. I know a lot of the performers on the strip and such. They are ALL very nice. No attitudes. No Los Angeles 'I am all that 'tude' Jerry Lewis' granddaughter is one of my best friends.
Only place where having been in porn is a badge of honor. Not many judgmental people here as it is so diverse and everyone is from somewhere else. Everyone is an enigma too. I know a self made millionaire from the rural south, who always has a cigar in his mouth, who is a liberal Democrat and actually says he wants to pay more taxes,while on the other hand, I know an active gay porn star who was elected by the Clark County Republican Committee as a delegate to the Republican state convention in Carson City. Living here can actually be more fun than visiting as everyone knows everyone and can usually get you tickets to a show, free bottle service, into the VIP areas, etc. So tell me about yourself, Elvis. Btw: whatever your name, I will always call you Elvis.
There are a couple pics I'd like taken, but I'll dump that on you in another message. You are such a sweet guy. Btw: my email is Gregg.socal@hotmail.com if you want to just email me. Have a great day, buddy!

Hey Elvis!
I had noticed you just joined. Welcome aboard! It is an interesting project in that it is to help others find where relatives are buried as well as document any information that can be found. 99% of the people that I have on my 'grave list' are relatives. There are a few that I enter just for the heck of it. The other day I was reading an article about a small old family burying ground they were digging up outside of Richmond, KYs. They discussed what they were finding and then listed the names. Since nothing will be left there shortly, I entered their information in. Unfortunately, out here there really are no old cemeteries hidden away where one can go through and take an inventory of the graves, but in much of the east there is. I used to live in Cincinnati and work in Sharonville. The exit from 275 to Reed Hartman actually has about 100 graves between the ramp and the 'natural' area. Every day I drove that and never noticed. There are about five markers left and so no one knows who is there. A lot of old cemeteries are relocated and the people never to be found again. Music Hall is on an old cemetery. Mother of God Cemetery in Covington is actually the second Mother of God. They moved the bodies....so they say, and not the markers. That was in the 1890s. My g-g grandfather is listed at Mother of God Cemetery as 'Mr. Gruenfeld from the old cemetery.' It should be spelled Groenefeld and he actually had a first name! That's the kind of thing I like to iron out. Hopefully, some day, my entries will help someone. Some cemetery's records have burned and they don't know who is buried there prior to a certain year. Only checking stones and looking in old newspapers if they exist can help determine who is there. Many many people have no marker at all. If the records go, so do they so to speak. St Mary's is something itself. Half they time they don't know where someone is or can't find the records. (that place is run by a private organization.) If you looked in some old areas there are no markers at all. If you get out and walk around in those sections, you will notice that St Mary's 'lay the stones flush.' (knocked them over is what I call it) The singles section from the 1800s had beautiful large gravestones, but there was no perpetual care paid on them (it wasn't offered at the time) and it's too much trouble to cut the grass. Most of the stones have sunken below the surface and are covered by dirt and grass. It is a terrible shame. One of my g-g grandfather's is in a section like that there. I paid the perpetual care and they found the marker, remounted on a base (did a sh***y job) and so it is one of the few that is upright. Of course I haven't been there in over 10 years so God only knows what they have done. I would not put it past them to knock it over again. Sometime take a walk through Section 6 (that's where he is) and look for all the stones that you can get a little glimpse of if they are not completely covered. Luckily my g-g grandfather is right along the road and so it was easier to locate the stone for them to put back up. UGH!
Some people like the historical aspect, some like the genealogical aspect, some the photographic aspect, and so on. Don't feel you have to take pics all the time. Keep in mind, since you signed up as a volunteer to take pics, you will get the notification whenever someone puts in a request within a certain number of miles of your location. It was so nice of you to do that for me. I really appreciate it. You must be a really nice guy. Is your name really Elvis? You ought to be out here in Vegas!!!
Hope to hear from you soon!
Thanks again!
Gregg
