Bio and Links
Bio Photo Genealogy is my passion so when I add a memorial I try to find out vital info for that person.

My motto- "If you donít know your history, then you donít know anything. You are a leaf that doesnít know it is part of a tree."~ Michael Crichton

I have added memorials from some photographs I have taken, obituaries, death records/certificates found in public records and some cemetery listings and veterans records.


Please DO ask for transfers.
I believe memorials belong to those who loved or know more about them than I. Their memorial will be better honored with your personal knowledge of them.
Will only refuse those I am related to.

Welcome corrections, additions and links to family members. Please use the edit tab.

My photos of GRAVES ONLY may be copied. I took them for you and anyone interested.

Photo quality varies with light and weather. If you captured a better photo than mine and wish to post it, just let me know so I can delete mine.

Obituaries are copyrighted, so I won't post them but use info from them.

Unmarked graves sadden my heart.
An Irish poem that reminds us marking our loved ones final resting places is a special gift.
********************************************
ONE FINAL GIFT.

Scatter me not to the restless winds
Nor toss my ashes to the sea.
Remember now those years gone by
When loving gifts I gave to thee.
Remember now the happy times
The family ties are shared.
Don't leave my resting place unmarked
As though you never cared.
Deny me not one final gift
For all who came to see.
A simple lasting proof that says
I loved and you loved me.

(by D.H.Cramer)

RE: Nora Whalen (Hurley)
Hi Linda,
It appears my last handle on Patrick is the 1942 WW2 draft registration, though I'd say he was safe enough given his age. No.2 Accomodation Street, Worcester. He was living with John. His employer??? was the Salvation Army. It looks like the census record I had in 1940 was wrong.

I was banking on 1952 based on a record I found, but I have 1964 as a year of death elsewhere. I believe his mother (my Great Grandmother) outlived him, but was never told, due to her health etc She died in 1964. That was actually an original theory based on what my father may have said, but perhaps sometime before her death in 1964 was actually correct. I may have discounted it when I saw 1952.

What you have found is amazing. California? I'd have taken some time to figure that one out.

thanks,
Martin

Hi Linda,
thanks for adding more records. I wasn't aware of the miscarriage. No wonder Patrick ended up as an inmate in the Poor Farm. My own brothers are William J and John P, so you can see the tendency to repeat names. I have yet to find Edward and John, but your work has been a great help.

RE: Nora Whalen (Hurley)
Hi Linda,

Thanks for adding the records. Ireland shuts down after about an inch of snow and I'm not joking. Schools close etc as nobody here can drive on any amount of snow. I can't even imagine what a few feet of snow would be like. thanks Martin

Nora Whalen (Hurley)
Hi, Would it be possible to get photos of the graves of Nora Whalen (Hurley) and her young child Thomas. Nora's husband Patrick was my father's cousin. I was delighted to see the records and it seems they didn't have things too easy with another child William J also dying at a young age. I'll happily cover you for any costs. thanks, Martin Whelan, Co. Waterford, Ireland.

Thanks for the birth info for Jacob Yanofsky. I think the death certificate you found is the same person. I changed the DOB.

RE: George Dutton edit
Thank you for the information. I do use familysearch.org when working on my own family tree. It is a wonderful resource. I will link everyone up. -Margo-

George Dutton edit
Hello! I wanted to thank you for the edits, but I was wondering what source you used to identify his father as the one you linked to? And, more importantly, if his mother and father should be linked up as spouses? It looks like George's mother might have been his first wife? -Margo-

PS The more I learn from solving my managed memorial mysteries, the better I get at solving my own family tree mysteries... :)
