|Bio and Links|
My ancestors were from Ireland and England - from Co.Clare,Co. Kildare,Co.Mayo,Co.Tyrone,and Dublin.also from Liverpool England,and Middletown NJ, Philadelphia Pa. for the most part, with generations living in Bell Harbor in the Rockaway's N.Y.|

Your tombstone stands among the rest;
Neglected and alone.
The name and date are chiseled out,
On polished, marbled stone.
It reaches out to all who care...
It is too late to mourn.
You did not know that I exist,
You died and I was born.
Yet each of us are cells of you,
In flesh, in blood, in bone.
Our blood contracts and beats a pulse
Entirely not our own.
Dear Ancestor, the place you filled
One hundred years ago,
Spreads out among the ones you left
Who would have loved you so.
I wonder if you lived and loved,
I wonder if you knew
That someday I would find this spot
And come visit you."
(This poem was written in 1906 by Walter Butler Palmer)
I work hard to get my information as accurate as possible and am thankful when other contributors do the same. I generally don't enter information such as inscriptions that are easily readable from the picture (why by redundant?), but I'm happy to make any corrections needed. Just please use the "Edit" tab on the memorial. It's easier to manage the emails that way. Thanks!
Photo's: Please feel free to make copies of the photo's that I have taken and posted here. I do ask that if you post them to other websites please give me credit for taking them as a courtesy.

|Tony Chiofolo||Thank you.|
I just added a memorial for Philip Chiofalo, which you have the photo for. Gaspare Chiofalo tombstone photo did not come through.
As a token of my appreciation, I have been researching one of your surnames "Marrs" and I am forwarding them to you. They may or may not be relatives of yours. If you don't want them, you can transfer them back to me. If there is another surname you want me to do research on, I will. It is only a small way to thank you for the Chiofalo memorials you are attempting to get for our family.
|Tony Chiofolo||Chiofalo memorials|
This is like X-mas morning for me. I am so very happy and grateful for obtaining these grave stone photos. Was the office helpful in assisting as I know this is a large cemetery. Did they indicate there were other Chiofalo's there?

Thanks for the Deneke plot. Too bad there is no stone. So glad I put my name on my stone already!
|Jack Wilson||Thanks JP|
As usual, top notch! I even got info on the stone.
|K. TRACY||Rhody Tracy at Calvary Cemetery|
Again, my deepest thanks for the photos you took and added for Rhody and Margaret Tracy. I appreciate all the work you have done for me. Is there any photos that you need in Connecticut? I would be happy to help you in some way. Kathleen

|Irish Michael||Thanks for going to 4 of the graves I was looking for|
3 of them had no headstone, but the Neary-Byrne headstone was very useful and I got new names for my research. Thanks.
Thanks again JP. it seems one by one you are sending my family to me.

I have been trying for month's now to get these photo's of my family. The number does not allow incoming calls. I've tried writing to them to get the grave location and no luck. I know this cemetery is large and I so badly want to find my lost relatives that are there. Can you help me?
