RE: Joseph Hamel
Hey Jim. I think I made a mistake. My message was in regards to Rosie not Joseph Hamel. I am new to this. It looked like there were two memorials for Rosie but when I checked again I did not see the second one. I think I made a mistake. I went out this weekend and took pictures of the headstones and added them to the memorial.

RE: Joseph Hamel
The memorial is not wrong. The relationship is what was wrong. You do not need to delete the memorial just the relationship.

RE: Ternes Memorials
Dear Jim,


We are TERNS, not TERNES which is another old Dearborn family. We are related to them but on my grandmother's side.

Peter and his wife Elizabeth (ESPER) are buried at Holy Sepulchre as is my grandfather Joseph Terns with my grandmother Antoinette Rose (Sellman). The other son Jacob and his second wife Christina Stein Esper Terns are buried at H.S. but Jacob's first wife Mary Catherine Esper is buried at St. Al's as is their son Albert George Terns.

There is probably a Peter Ternes running around because the Germans seemed to have very few first names that they used and it gets to be very confusing when cousins and uncles and parents all have the same first name.
