Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since 2001. I have added both family and non family members. Any additions or corrections are greatly appreciated. I have also added people that had both positive and negative contributions to society as well as some that were just caught up in events that they couldn't control. I feel we can learn from their mistakes as well as their accomplishments. Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.- George Santayana

I like to do corrections so send me what you have, preferably using the edit tab located on the upper right hand corner of each memorial. I want the memorials to be as complete as possible. Due to time constraints I don't always reply but I will do them within the 30 day period.

Note: As of 2/23/15 I should be all caught up with corrections. Please resubmit any that I may have missed updating the memorial.

Walter C. Withrow #66944902
Big Ern,

There is another memorial for Walter Clarence Withrow that is married to Norma LaVerne Cusick in Oak Grove Cemetery with a monument (Find A Grave Memorial# 159256282). Not sure if you want/need to delete your Walter C. Withrow.

William Horwitz, Jr # 136378351
Thank you for making the edits to William Horwitz, Jr's memorial. I had gone back to add a few things on my family tree for his granddaughter this past week, and ended up spending days on Mr. Howritz. Interesting journey.

Thank you again for making the edits.

God Bless,
W M Bencal

RE: Joseph Juliano
Do not bother to request a photo, I have been there and there is no marker on the grave.
Thanks for your response

Joseph Juliano
Regarding entry number 118300206 Joseph Juliano.

I'm curious to know why you declined the edit regarding Joseph's full name. His name was Nicholas Joseph Juliano (Giuliano) They called him "Little Joe" because he had a cousin Joseph Juliano whom they called "Big Joe". Big Joe was my great uncle and Little Joe would be a first cousin 2x removed. There are a few articles written about the Reid Ice cream robbery and also about the history of Ward 1 in Newark including the infamous Aqueduct Alley where both big and little Joe lived.
I would respectfully ask to reconsider and update him to his full name.
Thank You

RE: Detweiler memorials
So, Rebecca Bowen was your great grandmother? My tree "grows" from Peter Charles Detweiler and Luzetta Rebecca Horn. How cool is that?! Their daughter, Lulu Horn, married James Goethe. Their son, James Hamilton Goethe, was my father (he died in 1991)~ From whom are you descended?

Thank you so very much for letting me know! This is so cool . . . you've made my day! I'm not great determining relationships, but I think we're second cousins (?) since we share the same great grandfather. Because we have different great grandmothers, I'm sure there's some terminology to denote that. I've seen your name many, many times as a contributor, but would never have dreamed that you were part of my family

Hope you have a great day ~
