Nathanael Fedde
Hi Richard, Nathanael was a friend of my grandmother's, when she went to St. Olaf the year 1905-1906. Are you related? Would you like a transfer? My grandmother kept a diary that year and I could send it to you electronically. It's 28 pages if you print it out, so warning on that. She mentions Fedde, as she called him, so that is why I did his memorial. I was trying to find all of her friends and also the people she boarded with. Just let me know.

RE: William O'Meagher, M.D. (1829-1896)
Thank you. Regarding the birth year discrepancy, in the obituary I attached as a photo it reads 1821 and the bio reads 1829. Do you have anything more positive such as a record?

John Howard Voorhees (1901-1974)
I thought you might be interested to know that there is another memorial (#51529642) for John. He is buried in Pleasant Plains Cemetery in Franklin, New Jersey. He was the second husband of one of my VERY distant cousins, Nina L Keator Bossow (1st husband's last name). He is buried with his parents, John and Mary.

RE: Portfolios
Hi Richard,

Thank you very much for following up on my request. Actually, I managed to get into your info with the help of someone out at Family Search. The info was helpful but I was a little disappointed that it wasn't the actual death certificate. I was particularly interested in his cause of death.

In any event, thank you so much for your time and consideration. It was very thoughtful of you to go the extra mile.

Best wishes,
Mary

Thanks so much for your quick reply! I do have Family Search account but not very adept at using it--more of an Ancestry person. I went in and checked their names but I don't know how to find the documents you posted.

Thanks for any help.

RE: Ethel Boehm in Neshanic Cemetery. I am related to Ethel Boehm and am wondering if you are related to or have any additional information on the Boehm family. I am quite familiar with the Neshanic Cemetery and live nearby.

RE: Florence Outwater (1918-1918)
Bayview - New York Bay Cemetery in Jersey City NJ
Edgewood section
Grave 4
Row/Lot 676
Burial Date 2 Mar 1918
Florence Outwater (Has a "C" after her name, which I'm assuming indicates "Child" as one of the others has an "A" and she was the only child listed)

I'm looking at a photocopy of the cemetery card for that plot, card # E279
Has three other individuals listed on it as well as the owner and address.
I just figured out how they are all "kind of" related yesterday.

If you need a copy of the card and the other folks info, might be easier if we switch this to an email conversation.

Oh, almost forgot according to New Jersey, Births and Christenings Index, 1660-1931

Name Florence Outwater
Gender Female
Birth Date 6 Jan 1918
