Bio and Links
Bio Photo I give permission to use any picture I have taken for Find a Grave for use for other programs, websites or genealogical purposes. After all..that's why we take the pictures, so people can use them for their families.

I have been working on discovering my dead relatives for over 30 years. Now that I have retired I even have time to spend on new discoveries. I also enjoy going out to local cemeteries to fill photo requests. If I create a page which you would like to manage, just let me know and I'll be happy to transfer it to you.

Ognibene family in St Joseph Cemetery
Agnes Petrine, daughter of Joseph and Vincenza Petrine married Joseph Ognibene. I have created some memorials.
Agnes Petrine Ognibene 168868161
Joseph Ognibene 168868931

There are existing memorials for two of their children.
Rev Fr Salvatore Ognibene 108700285
Rev Joseph Ognibene 15686205
All four are buried in St Joseph Cemetery.
I have put in photo requests for Agnes and Joseph and son Salvatore. Son Rev Joseph has a photo of his marker and of a Ognibene family marker. The family marker is distinctive.

Because of a family marker there may be other family members buried there. I know of son Eric, daughters Matilda (married Charles Eugling) and Agnes (married Don P Love).

If you grew up in the Chicago area and are old enough you will remember the fire at Our Lady of the Angels Church and School in 1958. It is mentioned on Rev Joseph's memorial. He was a priest there who helped save children. The Wikipedia entry for the fire mentions him. After all these many years I have never forgotten as a child reading and seeing the pictures of that awful story.

I have requested and had approved links for Rev Joseph and Salvatore to their parents. I have gotten Salvatore's birth information on his memorial. His obituary on Find A Grave says he died in St Joseph Hospital. If you know where that is (Chicago?) and want to request adding place of death I leave that to you. I do not know of the hospital.

If any of this interests you do what you want with it.

What an interesting family the Petrines have turned out to be.

Petrine FAG memorials
I created memorials for the Petrine family.
Joseph 168865361
Marie 168866495
Millie 168937419

Millie may be Joseph and Vincenza's daughter Carmella. All that I can find on her on Ancestry is census reports that gives birth as abt 1911-1912. If you feel Millie is Carmella and submit an edit to link her as their daughter I will approve it. I would like more than the census reports but I don't know who else Millie is. From what you have said about the grave picture sounds like Marie and Millie are sisters.

I will be sending you information about their daughter Agnes (also buried in St Joseph) in another message.

From the pictures on Find A Grave, St Joseph looks like a pretty, peaceful cemetery.

Thank you for the pictures.

Thank you so very much for taking your time and effort in finding, photographing, and posting the pictures of my husband's great uncle and aunt. Since the family is in Texas we haven't been able to visit their graves and the family really appreciates being able to view their relatves headstones.

Thank you for fulfilling my photo request for Thomas DUSZA's marker. Thank you also for following up by taking a photo of his wife's marker, Anna F. DUSZA (Find A Grave Memorial# 168881072). I've established a memorial for her, so you can now upload your photo.

Thank you very much,

I mean I've got the marriage record of rose and her husband edward doyle jr, I've got her on census records, but no one really had information on her birth or death records, no one knew where she ended up, cause she wasn't buried in the plot with her husband in acacia cemetery.
Wow, yeah thankyou for taking the photo of her grave- here the link for her page --
