Bio Photo I am often asked why I capitolize maiden and surnames. Early in my genealogical research I came across 20 WAYS TO AVOID GRIEF IN YOUR GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH the 2nd part of #17 reads "Always capitalize or underline

There is a listing under Frank Corona see the following:

Created by: Micaela Kennedy
Record added: Mar 30, 2009
Find A Grave Memorial# 35355114

Mary Jo Corona is indeed Franks spouse however her maiden name is Mary Jo Cortemelia the daughter of Bessie Rao and Tony Cortemelia. See the following:

Created by: Anne Scamardo
Record added: Aug 08, 2009
Find A Grave Memorial# 40421114

She is definitely their daughter and is listed on the census as Mary. However she was definitely this Mary Jo married to Frank Corona.

My family is related very closely with the Corona's and Frank was well known by us so without blinking I am correct in this id.

Mary did not die on the 12th as stated on her tombstone it was the 10th. In addition, her maiden name needs to be changed to Mary Jo Cortemelia Corona. Hope this was helpful.

RE: Thank You
YOu can change the cemetery yourself if you are the one who created it..Go to the memorial and where it says edit burial "click" highlight and delete the wrong cemetery and then type in Galveston Memorial Cemetery.. It only lets you add a few of these letters and then search and it gives you all the choices of Galveston Memorial cemeteries ( you want the one that has 4800+ entries, then save your search and voila it is done.. YOu will have to do it for Benjamin and Elizabeth separately I think. Hope this helps. Pat

I was going to do the photo request for the Souders.. You have them listed in the wrong cemetery.. They are not buried in Galveston. I read both of the obits and they are in the mausoleum at Galveston Memorial Park Cemtery. This is in Hitchock Texas , not in Galveston. I will get you the pictures though and if you want copys of the obits I can do that also.
I know the Galveston Memorial thing is confusing. but I truly believe by the obits it is the one in HItchock ( Elizabeths Obit mentions in Hitchcock.

Are you related to the Nygards? There are some in Brule Cemetery, Spink, Union, SD. We may have common ancestors. Do you have a tree online somewhere?
