Bio and Links
Please feel free to use my photos for your personal genealogy endeavors.

Consort and relic refer to a spouse, usually to women. A consort is a husband or wife of a living spouse. A relic is a widow.

I typically do not put in calculated birth dates from the Aged information on a gravestone. Those dates tend to be incorrect.

I need help with St. Michaels's cemetery, East Elmhurst, Queens county, New York.

latitude and longitude
To add latitude and longitude, click on Edit Plot.

If you leave a space before the values, an error message, "values are not the correct format", will be returned.

Be sure to include the - for the longitude, otherwise the person will be buried in China.

If you download Google Earth (it is free software) and put in the search box the latitude and longitude (for example 38.7338, -86.48588), it will take you to the grave area.

I use Google Earth to find the latitude and longitude. I type in the latitude and longitude for the graveyard and then adjust the numbers until the pointer is on the gravestone.

Loose translation for the German: You good dear are .... .....resting in this graveyard..... but you are already up there praising God for what He has done for us

RE: Maria Obernolte
The stone was broken and repaired so I can't quite make out the first name. I am glad you liked the photos. I will try to translate the inscription

Emmitt Wagner

Thank you so much for taking the photograph of his memorial and, as a result, having more information about this man shared with others about his birth year and that he was married.

When I placed the request I thought perhaps he may have been a relation of mine. However, it turns out he is not - due to birth info being off by several years as my Emmit was born in the 1890s.

However, I still appreciate you taking such a nice photo of his, and his wife's, gravesite. :)

Hi - I'm so sorry to disappoint you, but no, I've no connection to the Massullo's. Mrs. Massullo was among a large group of memorials I was asked to manage. I will look around and try to find some helpful information for you.

RE: Bass Cemetery/Francis Marian Phipps
Thank you and I will keep that in mind for now. I have been chasing down the gravesites of the casualties of WW I for Lawrence County. I found most of these in the "Gold Star Honor Roll: A Record of Indiana Men and Women Who Died in the Service of the United States and the Allied Nations in the World War. 1914-1918" All the best, Dan

Bass Cemetery/Francis Marian Phipps
I noticed that you were at the Bass Cemetery today when I made the correction for Francis Marian Phipps. Wondering if you have any inkling of the location of the gravestone for John Will Phipps
(# 39902906), a WW I Navy veteran, out there. I looked twice and for the life of me, some of the limestone gravestones are too dissolved and lichened up to read. Thanx, Dan G.
