Louis Galbreath
I have written you before about my GGUncle Louis Galbreath. I have a cousin who wants to travel to NY and see his tombstone. Do you have any idea the plot or section #? Or a possible location in the cemetery for Louis Hutchinson Galbreath

I am looking for information on an Arthur Scholtz born about 1901 who married Josephine Vizvarie. Do you by chance know of this Edward?

Henry Martin Kendall
Thanks for your inquiry. I have done a lot of research on my Kendall lines, and I do have more info on Henry's family. I also have the newspaper article on his death/funeral services, printed in the Covina Argus on 21 May 1937 (page 2). You can access the article here:¤tResult=0¤tPage=0

RE: Louis Galbreath
Thank you so much. I recently aquired all my Great Aunts pictures, diaries etc. I have so many pictures of Louis and Julia and their sons, including letters etc.

I will copy the obit here of Louis for you, use it in any way you would like to. We have a Galbreath Reunion and we are in our 105th year. So we still celebrate Louis and his siblings. I know the last time his family returned to Charleston IL was in 1911 for the reunion. I have a letter from Louis jr in the 1930's but do not know what happened to Louis jr or other son Mitchell.

He was an accomplished man who died to early. I have other pictures of the Tift plots and from his grave site in 1899 if you would like copies.
thanks again! Ann

Prof. Galbreath

Died Yesterday in New York City

Victim of Typhoid Fever

His Death a Great Shock to Friends- A Glimpse of his successful Career- To be Buried in New York

Prof. Louis H. Galbreath, died yesterday afternoon in New York City, after a comparatively short illness with typhoid fever.

Such was the sad and startling news received here at 6 o'clock yesterday evening by telegraph. The message was sent by Mrs. Galbreath to Prof. L.O. Lord, but was turned over to Mr. H.A. Neal, who had it forwarded to Prof Lord at Peoria.

The news of Prof. Galbreath death was an awful shock to his many friends in this city. Only two or three weeks ago he was in our midst, in his full enjoyment of an apparently strong and vigorous manhood, giving no indication that he would so soon be cut down, and at the height of his _______ too.

Few men comparatively, had devotee themselves so throughly to educational work as had Prof. Galbreath.

His educational career began several years ago, when he taught a country school near Ashmore, under the late Prof. T.J. Le, then County Superintendent. We next find him at the Normal School, from which institution he graduated. After completing the Normal course he attended Cornell University one year. He returned to Ashmore and established Ashmore Academy, which he successfully conducted for three or four years, after which he again took his studies at Cornell and remained there until he graduated with honor to himself and the University. The following two years he spent in post graduate work and in tutoring at Cornell.

The next found him installed as principal od the training department of the state normal school at Wisosa Minn., taking the place of Dr. Coan McMurray, who had been called to the Illinois normal at Normal to fill a similar position. The next year Prof. Galbreath filled Dr. McMurray place, having entered Chicago University.

After leaving the Illinois normal Prof. Galbreath attended the Buffalo NY school of Pedagory one year, after which this school was aborted by Columbia University of New York City. It was at this latter institution that Prof. Galbreath spent last year, doing special work.

When the faculty of the E.I.N. was chosen Mr. Galbreath was tendered and accepted his chair of pedagory, the most important position as the faculty, except that of the president of the school.

Afterwards, Dr. Arnold Tompkins resigned his position as principle training teacher of the Uof I to accept the presidency of Illinois Normal, and soo the place left vacant by the distinguished educator was offered Prof Galbreath to be held open for him for one year. On this condition, he accepted. He greatly desired to assist in establishing the big state school in his own county and thought the positonat the U of I offered more and better documents in every way, he had decided to hold the chair of Pedagory at the E.I.N. for one year before going to the state university.

Prof. Galbreath's work in his chosen field was highly, emincently successful and in national education work, he had gained merited prominence and, at such gatherings, always took an active part.

Louis H. Galbreath was the son of Mr. and Mrs. James Galbreath of Ashmore, both of whom preceded him to the grave. He was born in Ashmore about thirty five years ago. His life a promising, it would seem, was all too short.

Prof. Galbreath was married a few years ago to Miss Julia Tift of Iibeca NY. Mrs. Galbreath and two boys, one three years old and the other either about two months old, survive him.

In his death such a useful man, such a able educator, our county and the state, in general, suffers a serious lose; to secure another such man for the chair he would have to occupied in the Eastern Normal will be extremely difficult, in the position he was to have filed, he would have been a tower of strength.

Personally his death is most deeply deported by all who knew him and his family are sincerly sympathized with in their great bereavement.

Will Galbreath, brother of the deceased is on his way to New York. Where he left so funeral arrangements had been made but, at noon today a telegram was recieved in Ashmore stating that the funeral would be held Thursday in New York City and the remains will be buried there.

RE: Sarah James
Dear Bill,
You're most welcome; I enjoyed taking the pictures and the challenge of finding the graves. Actually I did take a picture also of "Annie's" grave, so I have now posted it on Sara's memorial. It's hard to read but you might be able to make out some details.
