Please do not contact me about fotos...I did not get a copyright for my walks in the cemetery...they may be used on your site. I actually find it hard to believe that anyone would get an actual copy right for these fotos...but I will let that go...

I thing these names belong in a family name. So if you are related let me know.

LeClair memorials in Holy Cross Cemetery
Nona, thanks so much for the transfer of Norman LeClair & all the work you have done BOTH to initially create them during your 2012 RV visit to Wisconsin and then to make the edits I sent you.

I normally don't ask for more than the immediate family link, but since you are NOT related & my wife's 1C1R, Mary Lou Rezachek married Norman, I'd be pleased to take over at least some of the LeClair memorials. NOTE: there are a LOT of LeClair's interred at Holy Cross; it was a VERRY extended family in the region, but not all are connected on my end.

In addition to Norman, who you already gave me, I'd be honored to maintain his parents, Norman [#94649789] & Mary [#94649806] and three of his siblings:, Alfred [#94649162], Elaine [#94649742], & Lester [#94649709].

Namaste, "PJ" Braun, ETCM/USN (retired)(#46869838)

"Bravo Zulu", Sailor!! Now that's what I call a definite "double dip" of professionalism, Shipmate. Thanks so much for all your efforts & hope our paths cross again in the future. "PJ"

Nona... sorry to hear about your virus problems. Below is the obit for James Dassey, the father of the wife of my wife's GreatGrandAunt.
"James Dassey, 66, of Manitowoc route 2, died last night at Holy Family hospital, one week after suffering a heart attack.

"He was born August 20, 1874 at Bay Settlement and was a resident of this locality for the last 15 years. His wife, the former Rose Guyette, died 10 years ago.

"The survivors are three daughters, Mrs. Chester Weier of Manitowoc, Mrs. Joseph Rezachek of Two Rivers and Mrs. Elmer Phalen of Oregon House, Calif.; two sons, Robert of Manitowoc and Joseph of Los Angeles; two brothers, Frank of Two Rivers
and Erwin of Manitowoc; five sisters, Mrs. Frank Holsen of route 3, Mrs. Jules Trassert of Perkins, Mich., Mrs. Frank Cambray of Marinette, Mrs. John Bies and Mrs. Josephine Lund of route 2, and 14 grandchildren.

"The body may be viewed at the Wattawa, Urbanek and Schlei funeral home Wednesday evening and until the funeral services which will be held there at 8:30 o’clock Friday morning and at 9 o’clock at St. Mark’s church, Two Rivers."

Manitowoc Herald Times, November 19, 1940 P.5

If it would be easier for you, you can transfer it over to me & I'll run with it. Namaste, "PJ" Braun, ETCM/USN (retired) Find A Grave (#46869838)

Thank you for your kind and informative message about this lady and her family members. I am not related but received this transfer from BO when he moved away from our area and no longer wanted to be a volunteer on Find A Grave.

If you wish to have this memorial, I would transfer it to you on request.

By the way, I did send an SAC on Florence Ruth Turner Ford to add a Spouse link to her husband.

Best regards,
Lou Svach

RE: hi Matt
I found that Samuel B. Davis and Rhoda Milby (Melby on record) married in 1867:

Name: Samuel B. Davis
Birth Date:
Spouse's Name: Rohde Melby
Spouse's Birth Date:
Spouse's Birthplace:
Spouse's Age:
Event Date: 28 Mar 1867
Event Place: Galveston, Texas
Father's Name:

Indexing Project (Batch) Number: M59004-3
System Origin: Texas-EASy
GS Film number: 1008865
Reference ID:

Citing this Record:
"Texas, Marriages, 1837-1973," index, FamilySearch ( : accessed 20 April 2015), Samuel B. Davis and Rohde Melby, 28 Mar 1867; citing Galveston, Texas, , reference ; FHL microfilm 1,008,865.

As the Samuel currently linked to Rhoda was born in 1900, it is impossible that she was his wife. There is another Samuel Boyer Davis (memorial 127324060) listed as buried in Olivewood Cemetery in Houston, which, incidentally, has an AKA of Hollywood Cemetery, but the memorial has no dates associated with it. Rhoda died in 1913 (I have sent a correction as her memorial says 1931 currently).

I saw that you had left a token on Mr. Parker's page at Memorial Park Cemetery in Tulsa and that you are related. I just wanted to let you know that I have photographed his grave site and posted the photos. Red

Hi Nona,
Thank you for the picture of the Tipples. Have you done much work on this family? I think his sister Ada Charlotte married a Thomas J Parker in my tree but it's a branch that has a few missing pieces for me to be totally confident.

I'd be happy to send you a gedcom or anything else you may want to see.

Best regards,
Gord Parker
