RE: Ella Jones Williams, Oakwood Cem.
Alice, Thanks for incorporating my suggestions. I have copies of the Oakwood Cemetery records of the Octavous Jones plot, Sect C Lot 21, from which I found the info. Please also check the edit tab for birth and death date and place details, as well as the Plot#. There are three unmarked graves in the back of the plot - Carrie's sister Lilly and her husband and what turned out to be their daughter, which I have posted to Find A Grave. You might be interested in checking out the memorial of Ella's cousin, Ethel (Helms) Williams. I found a 1899 Duluth newspaper clipping about her death. Ella and Theodore took her remains to be buried at Oakwood. It took detective work searching for a next of kin sister Bessie Helms and finding her 1920 marriage record in Michigan listing parents Lilliam Goss and Fred Helms to confirm that Ethel Williams was really Ethel Helms who had changed her surname to Williams, thus confirming that Lilly and Fred were her parents. - Allen

RE: 111682129 Claus Doscher
Much to my own surprise, I still have the photos I took back in 2013! The closer up photo shows the inscription to be very eroded but it does look like "25 Sept" in the death date, so the Claus in the obituary may be the correct one. For the birth date, it may say June- not sure. I will post the additional photos.

RE: Alice,
I just want to say thanks so much, i cant believe that you went there and did that. I couldnt read the date before. I have been trying to find info on her forever. I need to verify her parents name, because nobody knows etc.., so, ill let you know. If your up for solving a mystery in the spring, associated with this, let me know. I would even pay you for your time if you can help me solve finding her first husband's burial place etc.. He was a Joseph Lewandowski (but may have a variance in spelling) who drowned in a river in broome county ny, with another man (possibly relative). then he was supposedly buried in schuylerville. he died between october 22 1891 (when he did his naturalization paperwok (renselear county county clerk) and 1892. Anna took the 3 boys to nyc and married a albert pohl, had 4th son John, then in 1908 married martin gronczniak. but cant find joseph lewandowski he was my great great grandfather

Thanks Roy Johnson

Lorenzo Warren grave
Hi Alice,
Lorenzo was my Gt. GT.Grandfather- I searched that cemetery at least a half dozen times looking for that stone! Thank you! It is funny, I just moved to CA (8 mo.), and now I get to see the stone! I also contacted you re: Teresa Banks Lewandusky @ St Mary's. Lorenzo was my Mom's Gt grandfather (Joseph Banks) on her Father's mothers (Elizabeth Warren) side.
How cool!!
Thanks!
Andrea

Alice,
I am Roy Johnson, member # 47897195. I am inquiring reference a photo you have for a martin goronczniak # 74443862 at st. peters cemetery.
He and his 1st wife Josephine are listed on the front, but on the back of the stone is his second wife Anna Goronczniak (my great great grandmother). I was there in 2005 and took a photo an didnt know it was her at the time, but now cannot make out the death date. Is there any way you might go by there and get a rubbing on the death date for me and let me know what it is? Also is there anyone there at the cemetery that would know to get more information on Anna Goronczniak? info on file at the cemetery? Thanks
Roy

baby Bennett @ Prospect Hill Cemetery
Dear Alice,

Thank you so much for posting the tombstone photo of baby Bennett for my family and me. It is greatly appreciated!

I was hoping that the tombstone would have biographical info like "infant of A & G Bennett" or "infant of A & D Bennett" or birth or death years so I would know which of Augustus V. Bennett's two wives was the mother of the baby (first wife Grace or second wife Daisy). I did go ahead and link the baby to Augustus as father. The others in plot 163 with baby Bennett and Augustus are his widowed mother Sarah, spinster sister Lelia, and second wife Daisy. I'm still looking for Grace's burial place (she died in Saratoga Co., NY too). Grace, was my maternal cousin.

With heartfelt gratitude,
Kati McSweeney
