Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hi all. I've had an interest in family history since I was very young. Following my grandfather's death in 1994, my aunt gave me some of his old records, including a baptismal certificate that was written in Polish. It was then that I began doing some serious research into my Borowski, Schorer, De Lille, and Day family lines. I feel very strongly about remembering and paying tribute to those who have gone before.

Please take a moment to visit my unforgettable mother:

Marie Constance De Lille Burke

My beloved brother:

Richard Michael "Rick" Burke

My grandparents:

Henry De Lille
Elise "Elsie" Day De Lille
John Anthony Borowski
Mildred Mary Schorer Borowski Bowen,

A sincere thank you goes out to all the kind souls who leave flowers and messages on the memorials I've posted here, and also to the many wonderful people who are so willing to voluntarily post photos of my loved ones' headstones. It truly means more than I could ever say.

Knudson parents?
Found next to Oswald's gravestone were 2 stones that could be his parents. Email me and I'll send them:

RE: John B @ StL Calvary
No worries

It has been pretty wet here, okay we gotten 4 inches so far this month, almost 8 in July. And it has been HOT, personally that is worst.

If you want to just re-request in about a month, with an Info bubble of this will be a new stone. We have a google spread sheet that 4-5 of us share to get the request done more effectively. We are pretty good about doing the sections that have maps (no maps for 5 or 16). If you want to read more, see my page.

We will continue to keep checking once we get the re-request, until we can fulfill.

Hugh Yett @ Cherokee Memorial Park, Lodi, CA
Cherokee Memorial Park implemented a new policy for ME (they know that I am not related to any persons buried at Cherokee)and, they will no longer give me plot location information.

If you would please call Cherokee ( Cherokee Memorial Park: 209-367-3082 ) and get the plot location for me, I will be very happy to get a photo of the headstones for you.

I go to Cherokee every day for my walking exercise!

RE: John B @ StL Calvary
I know who is in the lot, that is not is question... the question is Where did the new marker go. When Mr Tom took the picture on the 9th he told there is no other new stone in 25, 35.

So did they add to an existing or did they put in a new marker? Because he only saw the original 2. Could they have put in Sec 16T? At least then, it stick out out since there are not many stones, especially new ones.

Does that make sense?

John B @ StL Calvary
He is buried in
John Borowski M Nov 27, 1902 48 016 000T

The 2 Dora's are buried in Sec 25, lot 35, (along with Francis)... or did you have him moved?

Question... Which section did the monument company put the new stone in... since Mr Tom went by on the 9th.. and posted the wrong Dora picture, to the wrong Dora. (that is unusual for him) I would have thought that he would have noticed a brand new stone. He is good about those things, he is not new to this.
