Please call the St. Bonaventure cemetery office at 716-373-0450 for the Section Letter OR Number and the ROW the grave is in.
Add this information in the 'NOTE' box on the request page.

This will save me valuable time as this is a large cemetery.

Thank you, Kathy

Ellen Minahan
On Ellen Minahan:
I found a Frank Minahan whose obit said he had a niece Ellen Minahan. So I thinking Ellen comes from a sibling of Franks.
Patrick is his brother and they had a daughter Eleanor (maybe called Ellen).
I'm trying all his other sibs, but if she is buried next to Anna I would think it is hers and Patrick's. What do you think. Eleanor was born in 1881 and died before 1935.

RE: James H. Ensell
honestly am not sure...There are more siblings than Edward but it seems from the obits. I have and what the Granddaughter is telling me that the family is not close to contention so I am not sure if its wise to contact or who to contact...I am going to add memorials for James and Alberta as well as Viola Ensell Coast Kimbell(I do have burial for her) and leave burial unknown and maybe the Granddaughter or another family member will see the memorials and give me more info...I was told the Brothers and Sisters were probably buried together and that she thought the Sisters and their families were lapse Catholics over their Father's marriages but their is a nephew buried St. Bs so maybe...

RE: James H. Ensell
I appreciate your help.. The Granddaughter still seems to believe her Grandparents are buried Allegany but I can't find where...I probably need to see if I can contact the other living children(such as Edward) and see where they think their parents are buried but that may be some time as their Sister just past and from her obit. I am not sure they are in communication with each other...I did get info on the Aunt in San Diego and where she and her second husband is buried so I will be adding that as well...

RE: James H. Ensell
My own search seems to point in that direction.. Granddaughter doesn't seem to know much.. I sense some distance in the obits and from speaking to other family members...

RE: James H. Ensell
I checked Eldred and Ms. Slaughenhaupts inlaws and sons are buried there... I left a note for Sue Tyalor on her Grandparents and she believes its Allegany Cemetery and both were brought back here from Florida and her Father's ashes brought here from CA... but she wasn't sure The rest of the other 6 or 7 siblings are still living but I have no contact info on them as they don't appear in the present obituary and the obit. from a year ago in CA. has some name differences.. I asked Sue about the Aunt in CA. but haven't heard back on that.. She thinks the 4 people Brothers and Sisters are all buried the one Cemetery(??)...

Is there some way you can check Allegany Cemetery records and confirm if he and his wife Alberta are buried there?? Their daughter's obit was in the paper this week and I got asked to make memorials for both but am having problems finding them.. James's Brother Frank married Alberta's Sister Lauretta(I need to combine your memorials and mine).. I have the parents, and dates of birth and death(both died in Florida)The daughter is being buried in Eldred where Alberta's parents are buried.. I did Frank and James parents here...I am down to either cemetery in Allegany(Frank has a son buried St. Bonaventure), but the daughters burial bothers me as well... They have a son who died last year in CA. but the obit doesn't mention any burial.. Do you want me to delete my memorials and send you the parents?? Did realize until I was looking the last couple of days I had doubled Frank and Lauretta...
