Bio and Links
Bio Photo I work part time and enjoy going to cemeteries and hopefully I'm preserving someones' family history. I am in Sullivan County, NY and just recently started going to cemeteries and taking as many pictures of headstones and adding them to this great site. If there is anyone that wants me to take pictures in the Callicoon, Hortonville, Jeffersonville, North Branch, Liberty, White Sulphur Springs, Youngsville, Livingston Manor, Roscoe area...just let me know. I've been in a very old cemetery and lots of the inscriptions are almost gone...I find my searching very comforting knowing that I'm getting family history for someone! Feel free to contact me! HAPPY HUNTING!!! Holly
Names I'm researching:
In USA BOSSLEY/WYLAM/HUGGLER/ABPLANALP/KEHRLEY/and so many other German, English and Switzerland names.
AND CANNING, EVELEIGH, HEAD, HICKS, MANUEL, MINTY, WATKINS, WELLS and many other Newfoundland, Canada families.

Hi. There is a duplicate on her. Here it the other memorial record:
Birth: 1870, Austria

Malka arrived from Baligrod, Austria in 1900, with her children, Harry, Jenny and Lottie, to join her husband Selig. Together the family built a small summer boarding house into the famous Grossinger's Hotel in the Catskill Mountains.

Family links:

Jennie Grossinger (1892 - 1972)*
Lottie Grossinger Grau (1895 - 1962)*
Harry Grossinger (1901 - 1965)*

Louis Glasser...
Morning Holly :)
I sent an e-mail about Louis Glasser (151011115) with the name of the cemetery he was buried in:
Mount Hope Cemetery
Monroe County
New York, USA
I also sent the plot w/the other edit thingie (Plot: NW 1/4 66 R 7). Not sure if you got it or not so I thought I'd post that info here.
Have a wonderful day!

Lila Fox Hamilton
I found the entry for my mother, Lila Fox Hamilton, at Montoza Cemetery in Barryville NY. In two places her birth year is listed as 1928 but in the written obituary it is correctly stated as 1925. Another correction/addition is that she had a sister living at the time in Poughkeepsie NY by the name of Ruth Fox.

John Boehmer...
Hello Holly :)
There are two memorials for John - yours 136108463 created Sep 1914 and one created yesterday 169185712 by another Member. Not realizing you had the original, you linked 3 of his children to the NEW memorial which is a duplicate. I had received edits to link 2 more of his children and that's when I realized there were 2 memorials. I let the other member know that her new memorial was a duplicate of yours. Both are burial unknowns. I found his obit but it doesn't state where he was interred. His wife (130691399) is in Hortonville Cemetery - perhaps he IS there, but I'm not sure.
Here are the ones you linked this morning:
44641856 - Barbara Boehmer Werlau
105406405 - John F Boehmer
119529736 - Louis J Boehmer
I also asked her to remove the spouse link on the duplicate so there isn't a 'ghost' before the dup is deleted.
Hope this makes sense? :::scratching head:::

Fred Dapper virtual cememtery

I have bumped into you many times with my Honesdale relatives and ancestors! How I have appreciated what you have posted! What a great news article! It's such a sad story. I added Fred's birth to the record and fixed his name to Frederick R. Dapper The death cert just states Welcome Lake as the burial or removal place. Not sure exactly where he is buried. The date is 20 Feb 1920 for burial. He would have been my gr grandfathers brother.

Thank you again. I wish I could come comb the cemeteries with you....but I am in Idaho and not able to get to Honesdale easily.

For the 35th time: Does the S CoR on the bottom of Jerome's obit mean "South Corner"? His dght. was my grandmother and I have been trying to find her grave. Mother said she died of thyphoid. Total information. I believe Uncle Bert(Fuller) was simply cleaning up the mess that his brother made by marrying a girl 30 yrs. his junior. Ergo no one made mention. She married a travellin' man named Walter Fisher about the 3rd of the month and he was last seen going down the railroad tracks with his pockets stuffed with silverware. Agnes died a couple weeks later. She's neither in Roscoe with Chas. and first wife nor in Cooks Falls with the rest of the family.I am left to assume she is buried with her father. Any answers? Any info? Note: Benjamin(Jerome's father) was born in the U.S. Benjamin's father Peter was a revolutionary war vet. Either Peter or his father Heinrich(?) came over from Holland. The Dutch originally settled the Hudson Valley and took some time to overcome fear and Indians to settle the "Katerskills".
