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 2/23/14 I should be all caught up with corrections. Please resubmit any that I may have missed updating the memorial.

Alberta Daniels Withrow
If you've taken over Alberta's memorials, I was wondering if you could pass over to me #11129262. He was a dear friend and classmate.

James J. Lennon
James Lennon, husband to Annie Elizabeth Sullivan Lennon, was born in County Roscommon, Ireland, not in Boston. He was my great grandfather.

Wood: Freida W. and George W.
Hello; I was going to request from Alberta Withrow a transfer of memorials for the two people above; then sadly read of her passing away early this year. I don't know who to ask - perhaps it's you - about requesting a transfer of those two memorials. They are my maternal great-grandmother and great grandfather; I would love to be able to complete the information and add a nice 'bio' and some photographs of them. The actual memorial numbers are: 11042255 (Freida) and 11042256 is for George. I look forward to hearing back - and again, saddened by the loss of one of 'our own'. Conni Brady ~ theMamaCat

RE: Arline May Anderson

I will put her on my list of unknowns and see if I can find anything.

Mt Carmel-Susie Maritote
Good evening-the reason no one had replied to your photo request is that Susie wasn't in the database at Mt Carmel. I just got the Mt Carmel interment registers on permanent loan at my local Family History Center. Now that we know the location of her grave you can update your request and after the snow goes away, I'll add her to my list of sites to check.
Here's the info on Susie from the interment register:

Date of Interment: 31 Mar 1923
Name: Suse Martote (as listed in register)
Grave Location: Original-Section 16, Block 9, Lot 89 - Removed and relocated on 2 Feb 1932 to Section C, Block 8, Lot 1
Date of Death: 29 Mar 1932
Age at Death: 24 years 9 months 1 day
Last Residence: 728 S Hermitage Av
Cause of Death: Intestinal Obstruction
Presiding Clergy: P Foreso

RE: Timothy D. Murphy
Big Tim Murphy was my grandfather. I am so happy you posted where he is buried! Are you close enough to that cemetery to ever take a photo of the actual grave? - I can not tell you what a world of info you have opened for me. My mother never ever would tell us kids where she came from or WHO she was. Thanks Ern.
