|Eileen Castagna||RE: Thomas B. Holmes|
Georgia, I will delete thank you. Perhaps your family connection may be to Michael B. Holmes, the owner of that plot in Holy Name. His obit was quite extensive and I think I posted it here.
If not, I will do so for you to review. I don't know who Thomas was and I'm searching. Do you have an ancestry.com public tree? Eileen
|Eileen Castagna||Thomas B. Holmes|
Hello Georgia -
I was just entering info from my ancestry records and I see that you have added Thomas B. Holmes, 1902, Holy Name Cemetery, Jersey City NJ.
I am curious of your source please because I have trying to piece together the rest of the individuals in the family plot.
Hope to hear from you and thank you.

|KsCityKim||RE: Florentina Elizabeth Queen|
There is a photo on my memorial already. If you find out they're related, let me know. I've worked on the family a bit and have requested links to some of her kids and linked her to her husband Charles who you have. (His DC shows his middle name as Thobin rather than Tobin, but I've not found anything but "T" including an obituary) You might check back in a couple of days/weeks to see the links. I did find connection to a F/G contributor - one of her daughters married his uncle so he may want her too. lol Thanks! Kim

Thank you for your very kind words. I love helping other people, and I am willing to transfer almost any memorial if I believe the other Find A Grave member can add more information; the memorial does not have to bed in the members direct line.
Thank you for taking the time to drop me a note.
|JoyColeღ||Coffee in Heaven|
There is most definitely coffee in Heaven. I can see dad and Beansie happily raising their cups for seconds as mom passes by with the percolator. I remember so many parties with my parent's friends drinking coffee and eating Italian pastries from the bakery. All the ladies (wearing red lipstick) complaining about their waistlines and the men reaching for seconds and thirds. Wouldn't it be nice to think they can still enjoy each other.
There has to be a happy ending, I can't believe otherwise for our wonderful parents.

I just received notification that you sponsored William Wright - or dear Beans(ie). I can't believe how you remembered this sweet man and that he was a dear friend to my father.
Thank you Georgia, I am so touched. Beasie was just as kind as his gentle face and he was one "of those guys". The kind of man his family and friends could always count on to do the right thing. These men are so rare now.
Thank you Georgia, you are such a sweetheart!

Love Elmo! The three goats and the three sisters! Hugs, Rosie
|Sam Andrusko||RE: Margaret Landis/have requested obit. to be posted|
Oh gee, thanks for a quick response and your research efforts. Just checked Find A Grave for Joseph and Margaret I and see you've already made the links, so all I can do is thank you! And especially thanks for the obits of William and Margaret.
I noticed Rosy's obit also appears in the Myersdale Library Special Collections Project. If you got it from there, I wonder again if whoever typed up the obit from there made a mistake. It says the obit possibly came from the Meyersdale Republican.
Obit do have errors. Was annoyed with my half-sister when she gave the wrong maiden name for our grandmother's mother when she (grandmother) died. And this was only in the 1990s, so ... people do make mistakes. Also wonder whether Magdalena (instead of Margaret) is wrong or just a middle name. She's Margaret or Maggie in the census records I've seen.
Anyway, thank you so much for your efforts. Perhaps in Rosy's entry you can simply note that the obituary is incorrect; that she was the daughter of Joseph Landis, not Peter. Otherwise, it looks as though you've made the mistake, not the obit.
|John Pearse||RE: Good to see you here!|
Thanks, Georgia. I've really started to get into the genealogy thing in the last year or so. Fortunately, you and Becky and others have done a lot of finding and posting on find-a-grave so all I have to do is follow along.
