Bio and Links
Bio Photo I have been interested in genealogy since 2001. I have added both family and non family members. Any additions or corrections are greatly appreciated. I have also added people that had both positive and negative contributions to society as well as some that were just caught up in events that they couldn't control. I feel we can learn from their mistakes as well as their accomplishments. Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.- George Santayana

I like to do corrections so send me what you have, preferably using the edit tab located on the upper right hand corner of each memorial. I want the memorials to be as complete as possible. Due to time constraints I don't always reply but I will do them within the 30 day period.

Note: As of 2/23/14 I should be all caught up with corrections. Please resubmit any that I may have missed updating the memorial.

I cannot document it but her ashes snd those of her husband Robert were probably scattered in the Pacific off the California coast near Monterey and Carmel, their last home.

Justus Strawbridge
Hello, I noted the obituary you posted on Justus S.'s memorial page. It says his widow was greatly distressed. However, the link you have for his wife must go to his first wife, who died 1895. He died 1911. Do you know his second wife?

RE: Joseph Russo
Big Ern,

Thanks, I hope you can find it. With the death of my mom in February, I am now starting to make the memorials for my family and linking them to each other. The death certificate for my grandfather is very important. Tell me how much and I will reinburse you.
